Last week, in snowy Colorado, I had the pleasure of taking Jennica and Tyler's engagement photos! I had so much fun and I love how the images turned out in the end, but I'll be honest, this session didn't go as smoothly as I would have hoped... they hopped in with me at our meeting place since we weren't sure exactly where we would end up shooting. After our first set of photos, I got us COMPLETELY stuck in the snow because I didn't realize it would be so deep where I was trying to turn around. FINALLY after about 10 minutes of skillful (or lucky) maneuvering, we finally got unstuck! We were planning on taking some photos around a campfire, but we couldn't find ANY fire pits at the campground we started at :/ After a few minutes of driving around, we found the perfect spot (after a little fence hopping...). Unfortunately that was the moment we realized I'd forgotten the marshmallow skewers and neither of us had thought about bringing camping chairs.... I also forgot my macro lens in the car and had to run back for it. Needless to say, I don't know if I've ever been more of a hot mess at a shoot before!
That was the moment I was incredibly thankful for such a sweet, forgiving, authentic couple. They said, "we'll just use sticks and sit on the ground, that's more realistic anyway!"
Thank you Jennica and Tyler for being so wonderful. I really still had a blast and can't wait for your wedding next year!
