Bierstadt Lake Engagement | Ashley and Brian

I met Ashley… over 2/3 of my life ago.  Literally, we’ve known each other a lifetime.  In elementary school, we used to hang out and watch movies in her basement hot tub (I mean, come on… who wouldn’t want to spend all day in an indoor hot tub?!?) and playing “teacher” at my house.

Fast forward a few schools, diplomas, and degrees later… we’ve both “grown up” and are starting families of our own.  I was so excited when Ashley asked to meet up in Denver and talk photography over some drinks of the adult variety.  It’s always so nice to catch up with old friends, and to meet the person they’ve chosen to spend their lives with.

For their engagement session, we hiked up to Bierstadt Lake in Estes Park.  September in the high country is always stunning.  We timed our session just right, we hit the gorge at peak color.  The slope side leading up to Hallett Peak is quite a sight to behold in fall.  I’ve really come to love this side of the mountain over the course of 2016.

Thank you for trekking up the series of not-so-little switchbacks in the full sun with me, Ashley and Brian.  🙂  I can’t wait to celebrate your June wedding with you shortly.

Also, be sure to check out the video at the bottom of the page for a snipet of behind the scenes footage!
