Engagement Session Colorado Springs CO
Katie & Billy Engagement Session Colorado Springs CO was beautiful and so much fun!! These two are some of the most relaxed and go with the flow couples we have had the pleasure of working with this week here in Colorado.
Our original plan was to go to Lake Isabelle. However, they got 54 inches of snow the week prior to getting here and we wouldn’t of been safe shooting there, so we decided to go to the Paint Mines in Colorado Springs.
When we arrived there, they were covered in snow so we decided to improvise and shoot on the road that was empty. Engagement Session Colorado Springs CO
It truly worked well with their personalities and aesthetics. Katie & Billy are simple people so having a simple back drop for their photos was the perfect alternative. Engagement Session Colorado Springs CO
The star of the show was their dog Mr. Bean. He wasn’t too happy with wearing his sweater or having to take photos but he was definitely the star of the show. Engagement Session Colorado Springs CO
A LITTLE Q&A FOR THE BRIDE & GROOM
HOW DID YOU MEET?!

Throughout the rest of the night, all of our co-workers kept asking if were seeing each other. It was not only easy for us to see but our friends that there was something there we couldn’t ignore. That night he asked me out on a date.”

“I came back to the table and was being a chatty Kathy, Billy was acting weird since this is very usual for me. Apparently, the box was sitting there for a good ten minutes and Billy finally said: “babe you don’t see that box?” He grabbed it and got down on one knee and said will you marry me?…” Engagement Session Colorado Springs CO
