Castle Rock Engagement Session | Colorado

March 15, 2019


This Castle Rock Engagement session is one I’ll not soon forget!

I‘m completely spoiled by having Sarah and David in my life! Their Castle Rock engagement session was a little chilly but soooo much fun!

I met them five minutes before their session and instantly I felt like I had known them forever. We were laughing and goofing off within minutes and I knew in that very moment that this was going to be a special session. David and Sarah are seriously the SWEETEST people alive.

It was a chilly evening but these two kept plenty warm throughout our time together. They cuddled, they laughed, they kissed, and did I mention they laughed? It was such a joy to watch them interact- I’ve never seen two people so in tune with one another.

During engagement sessions I will occasionally mention to the bride to lift her chin, or reposition her hand, or another random movement to get them into the perfect pose. But with David and Sarah, I basically had the night off! They naturally align with each other and I rarely had to direct to get them posed just right. I think I squealed a few times as I glanced at the back of my camera- I just love sessions that happen organically without much (or any!) prompting.

David and Sarah met two years ago through mutual friends, and worked through the long distance dating that so many couples have to endure. Sarah eventually moved out to Colorado to be with David in June and just a few short months later, they were engaged. On their one year anniversary, David surprised her with an afternoon at a local musical theatre production and then dinner reservations in Downtown Denver.
David then treated Sarah to a trip to their favorite spot afterwards, Little Man Ice Cream.

David had designed a video containing the sweetest messages from her parents, sister and best friends. All leading up to him getting down on one knee and asking her the best question she’s ever been asked! ☺️
In Sarah’s words, “It was the most thoughtful, meaningful and unforgettable proposal!”

So excited for these two to become husband and wife this summer at The Pines at Genesee here in Colorado!
Congratulations, you two!

When my husband, Jeff, and I were planning our wedding, we hired a photographer whose work was beautiful. Fast forward a few months, she ghosted us. Took our money and vanished. Two months before our wedding, I'm panicking, trying to find another photographer who was available on our very popular date- 10/10/10, and whose work didn't completely suck. I was laughed at over the phone by one photographer, whose name I will withhold but will FOREVER remember. He obviously thought my desperation was amusing, but I couldn't see the humor through my enormous tears. 

After having already spent our entire photography budget, I was forced to hire the only person who was left available, and for fairly cheap. He definitely over-promised + under-delivered. It was a sad experience, one I never want you to have to go through, which is why I am so passionate about ensuring my couples have the MOST amazing wedding photography experience humanly possible, with me.

If you are looking for a photographer who values YOU and your entire wedding photography experience, I'm your girl.
I will be by your side, making sure you feel totally comfy + content while you're in front of my lens. I promise your wedding day photos will be timeless, beautiful, and everything you've dreamed of.

I honestly can't wait to meet you, so get in touch and let's do this! 

If you have found your way to me, it's probably because you've been searching for the right photographer, but none of the others have felt like 'the one'. I get it. I've been there, done that.
