When Jean and Nick asked if I would be willing to drive to Aspen for their Maroon Bells engagement, there was only one answer:  HECK YES.  Even as a Colorado native, I had never been to the Maroon Bells.  For those that don’t know, this stunning location just outside of Aspen is the most photographed location in all of Colorado.  If you’ve seen a “stock photo” of Colorado, it’s most likely from this stunning lake.

On a Friday morning, I left my house fairly early to head over Independence pass into Aspen for Jean and Nick’s Maroon Bells engagement session.  I took my time, taking in the views through Leadville, over the pass, and into the town its self.  When I took the right curve where the peaks come into view – I nearly was in tears.  It was truly a sight to see, and a sight that I had been waiting a long time to experience.

I met Jean and Nick up at the lake, where we took the Lake loop to get a few different areas of the surrounding wilderness for their Maroon bells engagement.  As much as they would have loved to have done a full hiking session, Nick was recovering from a motorcycle accident that unfortunately made that not possible for this moment in time.  (I would love to go hiking in that area at some point – hint hint 😉 ).  We started taking the loop, getting the greenery as well as some stunning red rock formations in the background.  As the sun started to hit the horizon off in the distance, we headed back to Maroon Lake for some images just as dusk approached.  The mountains only alpenglow (that “bright red” look) at sunrise, but the dusk light was also quite magical and simply stunning.

I’m so excited to celebrate with the two of you this August for your Keystone wedding!  Thank you for adventuring into the wilderness with me for your Maroon Bells engagement!

"Savannah is an amazing person and photographer! She captured our wedding in every way we could imagaine. Looking back on the pictures she took makes us remember and feel those special moments. Savannah is very professional but at the same time will help load up carseats and offer a helping hand wherever she can. She is very knowledgeable from locations to take pictures to making us feel comfortable in directions to pose. We have nothing but good things to say. We definitely reccomend Savannah Chandler!"

Savannah was so great and managed to make us (two awkward people) feel super comfortable and thrilled about wedding photos. :) She saved our day with her flexibility and the pictures were better than we could've ever hoped for! Highly recommend!
