Colorado Engagement | Lindy and Dave | Littleton and Boulder Engagement

Lindy and Dave | Colorado Engagement
Savannah Chandler Photography | Colorado Engagement Photographer


Sometimes, it seems as if everything works out the way it does for a reason.  You can call it fate, you can call it the cosmos – but sometimes things line up without you knowing it.  When Lindy and Dave were trying to decide on a few locations for their Colorado Engagement, they wanted to incorporate areas that meant something to them as individuals as well as places that helped to tell their love story.  Dave grew up in Littleton, Lindy grew up in Boulder.  We knew we wanted to start our day in Littleton/Red Rocks, and end our time together in Boulder.

I had seen some images of a beautiful cave near the Red Rocks area, but after a few weeks of looking for where it might be I couldn’t find the exact spot I wanted to take them to.  We decided to meet at their wedding venue, the Manor House in Littleton, and Dave had a neighborhood park in the area that he grew up going to and thought would be great to photograph at.  We headed over there, and it was indeed a super cool place.  As we were walking around, he let me know that there was a cave at the park, and we could go check it out.  As we approached the cave, I recognized the light coming in – it was the area that I had been searching high and low for!  Anyone who’s photographed with me knows that I don’t have a “poker face”, my excitement was quite apparent.  WE FOUND IT, and all by chance.  Lindy and Dave let me know that this park was one of the places that they went when they first began dating – they would walk around the park together.

Once we left the neighborhood park, we headed down highway 93 to Chautauqua park, a place that Lindy holds near and dear to her heart.  Something interesting about the infamous park in Boulder is that the sun dips behind the flatirons quite early.  We got to the park before the sun hit the ridge to try and capture some Colorado skies – we didn’t get a “bluebird day”, but we did get some photos wispy clouds.

To end our time together – we headed up to Lost Gulch Overlook on Flagstaff mountain.  I typically love to end up at this spot – it’s pretty dramatic with the rocks overlooking the sweeping mountain views.  We originally were planning to end here at sunset – but the good ol’ Colorado weather patterns had different plans for us.  There was a storm brewing to the West, and had already begun to pound Gross Reservoir with rain and high winds.  We photographed until the winds showed up (with quite some force at that).

As I drove down Flagstaff mountain, I thought about how much I love photographing in places that have meaning to my couples.  Lindy and Dave had so many fun stories to tell on our afternoon together.  I also love Engagement sessions for this reason – it’s a great opportunity for me to spend some one-on-one time and get to hear all of my couple’s fun, quirky, lovey stories.

Thank you for spending the afternoon with me, Lindy and Dave.  I can’t wait to celebrate your September wedding at the Manor House with you!

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!
