Lory State Park Summer Engagement | Colorado Wedding Photographer

I can't even begin to explain how much I love my clients. I know that everyone says that they have the BEST clients. But, I really believe that. They are more than just clients to me, they become a permanent part of my life. They become my friends. Today's #weddingwednesday comes from a referral from Liv + Nick, a wedding couple from this Spring who came from Hannah + Ryan from a couple of Summers ago. (See what I'm saying about how amazing my clients are?! I freaking love referrals because we are starting our relationship built on another amazing relationship and it feels so natural and fun.) 

Meet Ashley + John! They met through Tinder in 2015 and quickly fell in love. In April of 2017, the couple vacationed in the Netherlands. During a bike ride in the Keukenhof Gardens, they stopped to have lunch in the tulip fields and that is where John got down on one knee and proposed to Ashley.  When I heard this story, I pretty much melted! 

I met Ashley + John, plus their dogs Sheeba + Brynlee at Lory State Park in July for their engagement session. I had never been there before, but it has some pretty amazing spaces and I love how their engagement session came together. These two are so in love and fun to be around. I can't wait to for their 2018 wedding! Enjoy some of my favorites from their session. 

Not even kidding, the picture below on the left is the very first picture I took "testing the light." Yeah, these two are amazing!

We ventured over to Horsetooth Reservoir after a wardrobe change and I love how the red and greens photographed.

This last photo is my absolute favorite from their session! I love that moment right before the kiss and Sheeba + Brynlee just look so happy!
