Kayla and Wyatt | Sprague Lake and Moraine Valley Engagement
Rocky Mountain National Park Engagement
Savannah Chandler | Estes Park Engagement Photographer

 

Colorado decided to give us an afternoon show for Kayla and Wyatt’s Sprague Lake engagement session… We had sun, snow, a downpour, and pretty low temperatures.  Good old Rocky Mountains, handing us all the weather in two hours time.

I absolutely love photographing in Rocky Mountain National Park – it’s my favorite place in Colorado hands down.  There are so many beautiful areas, trails, and you can’t top the views.  We chose Sprague Lake due to the entire trail being accessible for Wyatt, which to me is pretty incredible that the park keeps up on the trails for all abilities to enjoy the park.  Thank you for that, National Parks Service.

When we first entered the trail, Hallett Peak was visible and I’m so glad we began photographing right away.  The storm clouds rolled our way within three minutes of our arrival, and covered the mountain range.  I do love me some dark, moody clouds – but I was so happy to grab a few before the beautiful mountain tops disappeared into the grey abyss.

Once the rain began to pour down, we headed towards lower ground at Moraine Park.  The valley views at Moraine are stunning, with the Mummy Mountain range standing tall in the distance.  Wyatt was quite the trooper, willing to tough it out to the middle of the valley to get the photos that I had in my mind.  I love incorporating my couples into the surrounding scenery, focusing on both their connection with each other as well as their connection with their surroundings.  Sometimes, my crazy vision has me pushing the envelope to get my couples to the optimal spot.  Wyatt and Kayla were amazing… willing to push our limit as far as we possibly could to get them the images I was putting together in my head.

Thank you for the amazing Mountain adventure, and I’m incredibly excited to photograph your July 2017 wedding!

Recent Colorado Weddings

        

Colorado – my home for the past 34 years and counting.  My family were Pioneers from Norway and Germany to Colorado in the 1880’s.  I think it’s pretty amazing that our family has always had an interest in photography and capturing moments.  Growing up seeing photographs of our family in covered wagons on their way to Colorado is one of my fondest memories.
  Truly, I love Colorado and the amazing mountain ranges throughout.  I grew up heading into the Mountains on weekends to hike in the summer, and to snowboard in the winter.  I’m hapy to say that not much has changed, I’ve just added a husband and child into my adventerous outdoor mix.  My husband and I now take our little man out into the wilderness that Colorado has to offer, hoping to fill his young life with amazing memories and experiences.
I hosted my wedding in Evergreen, Colorado in May of 2011 at the Evergreen Lake House  .  After our wedding day,  I knew that I wanted to be a Colorado Wedding Photographer.  I was attending Metropolotian State University of Denver for fine art photography at the time, and the transition into a Wedding Photographer was fairly seamless.
I love adventuring to new places for weddings and elopements!  I hike regularly, and love showing couples my favorite spots.  There are amazing places in every corner and in every season.  Snowboarding is also a passion of mine, and I LOVE to capture couples shredding Pow Pow down the mountain.  Interested in a Colorado Hiking or Adventure Elopement?  Contact us on the form below!  Every year I have a list of locations that have special prices for couples wanting to hike, I’d love to chat about my current list!
