One of my favorite things to do is go snowboarding, especially during the week, ESPECIALLY on a powder day! On cold Tuesday in January at Breckenridge ski resort, I managed to accomplish all of my favorites, including an adventurous engagement session! The resort had reported 6 inches the night before, but there were definitely spots that had at least 8-10 inches - SOOO GOOD. Couple that with the fact that it was a weekday and there were no lift lines, so I was in heaven.
Kat and Rich were in town from Miami to finish some wedding planning (they are getting married at the Sonnenalp in Vail next February - yup. cant wait!) and we decided to do some engagement photos in Breckenridge at the ski resort! The engagement session was completely based around snowboarding, and of course, the occasional beer break ;) It was a blast and I love couples who don’t take themselves seriously and just try to live life as genuinely as they can. They are both nurses who are incredibly passionate about what they do, and it shows. They also love snowboarding together, so much so that they make it a point to take multiple ski trips a year! We started out with some fun photos in the snow, and then bundled up and went riding. It was my first time ever carrying all of my heavy photo gear while snowboarding (not to mention my first snowboarding engagement session!) and I was terrified I was going to fall straight onto one of my cameras and break a lens or something worse. Luckily the snow was great and riding with all the gear in my backpack was relatively easy.
If this kind of an adventurous engagement session sounds up your alley, please do not hesitate to reach out! I had so much fun doing this and would love to meet more fun loving couples like Kat and Rich!
