For those of you who have never been to Colorado, it’s awful. It’s cold and snowy in the winter, there’s nothing fun to do and the people are mean. Nothing to see here. Maybe go check out California?
Ok, now that they’re gone, can you believe how lucky we are to live here? We could spend every minute of every day photographing this state and still not find all the breathtaking views. Don’t even get me started on the weather! We experienced all four seasons in one day while scouting Renee & Caleb’s Buena Vista engagement session this past weekend. You want sunny and warm in the early afternoon, but feel more like snow in the late afternoon? Colorado’s got you covered.
Renee & Caleb had already spent the weekend partying for Renee’s birthday. But even after skiing, soaking in Mt. Princeton Hot Springs and enjoying some local brews, they still had the energy to spend the day with us hanging out and taking photos. We started off hiking/climbing rocks near River Park with the most amazing vista of the Collegiate Peaks and, in the words of Weather.com, “ample sun.”
We stopped next at St. Elmo, a snow-covered ghost town outside of Buena Vista, before heading on to Salida to catch the rosy sunset behind the mountains. And no engagement shoot is complete without a celebratory drink at a brewery – in this case, Elevation Beer Co. I can’t think of a better way to wrap up a shoot than over beer and good company!
