It’s crazy how fast time flies, because these two are officially getting married today in gorgeous Golden, Colorado! I am beyond excited to be able to capture every detail of their beautiful wedding in the foothills, from the sweet little twinkling lights strung up above their ceremony site to the views of the Rocky Mountains in the park up the street. I know it’s going to be just as epic and special as their Boulder engagement photos, which I’m so excited to finally be sharing!
When I met Shelby and Andrew, I could tell they were pretty dang awesome. They’re funny, edgy, and also just about the sweetest humans alive. But after taking their Boulder engagement photos, I can confidently say these two are total rockstars. The day of their engagement session, intense thunderstorms were taking over Boulder. In particular, the spot in the foothills that we’d selected for their shoot was being hit pretty badly.
But with afternoon mountain storms in Colorado, they’re here one moment and gone the next. So these two, being the adventurous souls that they are, agreed to drive up to the spot and see if maybe the weather would improve. As luck would have it, the rain stopped right as we got into the mountains. The only remnants of the storm were the most stunning cloud inversions and fog weaving their way through the trees. Honestly, the weather could not have been more gorgeous.
Their Boulder engagement photos honestly felt so different than a lot of the other sessions I’ve photographed. We get a lot of sunny days out here in Colorado, and moody weather like this is honestly a bit of a treat. It was such a unique and fun experience, and the perfect vibe for Shelby and Andrew.
P.S. As a Colorado-based adventure wedding photographer, I pride myself on not just documenting your national park elopement or Boulder engagement photos, but helping you plan out all the little details as well — like helping you figure out the perfect time of year for your couples session.
I’m a firm believer that your adventure wedding photographer should be a resource and guide to you during the whole adventure elopement planning process.
