Kat and Rich - Breckenridge Snowboarding Engagement Session - Breckenridge, CO

snowboarding engagement session breckenridge colorado

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!

Betsy & Connor - Mt. Sanitas Engagement Session - Boulder Engagement Photographer

Betsy, Connor and their adorable puppy Teddy during their Mount Sanitas engagement session!

I’ve been dreaming of summer lately (actually, let’s get real here, I dream of summer year round, as it’s in my Cuban blood) and have been literally counting down the days to this Sunday, which is daylight savings. Of course, I say I’m super excited for longer days now, but I’m not entirely sure how Luna’s 7 PM bedtime will fly when the sun is going down at 9 (thank god for blackout shades). Still, I think I prefer those consequences over the winter 4 pm sunsets. Those kill me.

Anywho, this session has me thinking a lot about summer engagement sessions and some of the fun places I want to check out this year once the trails are officially snow free. I have a wedding down in Buena Vista later this year and I think it would be super fun to kill two birds and check out the Great Sand Dunes while we are down there. Another spot that I’ve also never spent time in is Ouray, so Woody and I were talking about taking a few days to make the trek and do some camping (and photograph some awesome folks!) out there.

Apart from summer, this hiking engagement session also has me thinking about wildflower season. I always thought you had to venture deep into the mountains to catch a glimpse of some gorgeous blooms, but as I found out last summer, you can find some right here on the front range. This engagement session was at Mount Sanitas in Boulder, and these blue flowers were a total surprise, since I wasn't expecting them. Connor and Betsy brought their adorable puppy Teddy and he even wore a bowtie. I can't deal when clients bring their pups, it's so stinkin cute! Anyways, enough out of me, enjoy this couples session, and keep an eye out for Connor and Betsy's wedding later this year!
