Golden Gate Canyon Engagement Session | Shaheed + Megan

Colorful Mount Falcon Engagement Session | Brian + Jackie

There are two main reasons why I love Colorado so much. Number one is obviously the MOUNTAINS (what’s not to love??). But number two?

It happened fast. Bianca got in touch with me on a Tuesday about doing an engagement session at Great Sand Dunes National Park.

Where do I even begin with these two?? Beautiful inside and out, always making each other laugh, and dang, do they have some STYLE! I’ve known Reed and Ryleigh since high school.
