Snowy Day Engagement

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!

Steve & Celina - Winter Park Engagement Session - Snowy Berthod Pass Engagement


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!
