Erin + Christian are getting married up at Powderhorn this year, and I cannot wait for their gorgeous fall wedding! But to get my couples comfortable for the big day, I always recommend an engagement session.
These two (like many of my couples) claimed to be nervous for their session. I understand that because let me tell you a secret: I am a photographer who hates having my photos taken, too. Talk about irony!) Here’s the thing though – aside from that being a fact that most of my couples end up laughing at me about, it is also my secret weapon. I understand your nerves and so I try to help you overcome them. I talk a lot, make self deprecating jokes (alllll the time, honestly) and am not afraid to show you the poses myself, so you see that I’m not asking you to do anything I wouldn’t do. That, and I also try to give you movements and discussion topics that help keep your focus off of the camera in my hands.
And these two did a great job! I am in love with the photos we ended up getting that day! Christian works for the parks out here, so when we went to this park in Rifle, Colorado, I felt like I had the grand tour. We found an ice cave (it was super slick but so worth it for me to fall and get them this photo), and also found a cute little place to build a small fire that they could cozy up next to. It was extra special for me to get to give them portraits in a place that is special for them. Erin’s family has some deep roots in Rifle as well, and I think this valley has some gorgeous places that we are lucky to have access to and take care of!
All this to say: Erin + Christian are the epitome of hometown honeys, and I cannot wait to get to shoot their wedding at Powderhorn! What an amazing spot to get married at! An October wedding in Colorado that encompasses a gorgeous ski resort and even more gorgeous couple?… I think I’ve ended my last two blog posts this way, but it’s because I can’t help it! I am SO lucky!
