I’m a wedding & elopement photographer for laid back couples that value the idea of being married more than just having a party. They want photos that show their true selves and represent their love of nature, and prefer to be more natural than overly posed.
I’m part of wonderful group of female professional photographers in the Denver area, which organized this gorgeous Colorado Rocky Mountain styled engagement shoot as part of shootout event last August. They picked real couples to model for small groups of 4-5 photographers, each of us getting a chance to pose and photograph the couples. I had such a rad time meeting so many photographers that I mostly know online in our little Facebook group. It was also a blast working with real couples, not professional models, as I had to pose and prompt them just like I do with my real clients. This is a the second part in a series of blog posts dedicated to the event. Check out the first part in the series here.
This sweet couple had such a great, unique style and totally fit with the free-spirited couples I love working with! As their engagement session got going, the skies grew dark and overcast, lending to a super moody vibe. I really couldn’t have asked for a better feeling with these two!
The love between these two was easy to see. They both have a deep connection to their faith, their beautiful state of Colorado and each other.
The trail winding through the meadow among the pine trees was beautiful. We walked it for a while and found a spot with views of the mountains behind them.
As we headed back to the main meeting point to switch up the couples for the shoot, I got a chance to have a few photos of these two in front of Polly, The Blue Bus Booth. I mean, I just can’t not take a photo of a couple in front of this epic VW bus! I seriously love them so much. It’s a good thing I don’t have a big yard, or I might have a collection. One is enough! 🙂
I had such a great time working with this awesome couple! They had such a fun vibe and were so in love. It was seriously the perfect Colorado Rocky Mountain styled engagement shoot as part of the shootout event! If you liked this shoot, you should check out the previous blog post to see one of styled wedding shoots as well.

Hey, I’m Erica a sentimental wedding photographer for free-spirited and natural couples that love celebrating outdoors! I am based out of gorgeous Bend, OR, but I love to travel and I’m always looking for an excuse to get back home to CO! I still have some 2017 dates available, so if you are getting married, I would love to chat. Engagement sessions are included in most wedding collections, but I am also available to shoot engagement sessions without a wedding collection. Shoot me a message and let’s talk!
