Well guys, Celina and Steve are officially the cutest. They came in from Texas in hopes of having a snowy mountain engagement session in May. They met me on the top of Berthod Pass, which I thought might be the best way to capture the kind of engagement session they would love, and I was right! It was a perfect spring afternoon on the mountain - not too cold, not too wet, and only a tiny bit cloudy. Because it was late spring though, we kept walking on (what we thought) was packed down snow and kept falling like 2 feet through the crusty top layer, which made walking hysterical but also kind of a terrifying guessing game. At one point, Celina jumped on Steve's back and down he went (pictured below). It always amazes me how deep the snow can be after a long season! Anywho, we basically spent most of the session laughing, which I love. Don't get me wrong - I love the occasional moody couples session, and the vibes those sessions give off, but I think that my strong suit lies in laughing with others and capturing people not taking themselves too seriously. I tend to be the most awkward/clumsy human on the planet, which I think (and hope) helps people open up feel less awkward themselves!
Berthod Pass engagement sessions and Winter Park engagement sessions are some of my favorites - if you live in Colorado, you know that it's only about an hour and 15ish (without traffic - with traffic is a whole other ball game) from Denver, which makes it a great spot to have an adventurous engagement session without the commitment of driving a million miles. Plus, I have a soft spot for Winter Park because it's the first town I lived in when I first moved to Colorado (and also the place where I learned to snowboard, which led to my first every bruised tailbone, but I won't bore you with that story, haha). Congrats again Steve and Celina!
