I’m really looking forward to Erin & Jerod’s wedding next Summer at Willow Ridge Manor! We took a nice stroll around Washington Park in Denver near where the couple lives one warm evening to do their engagement photos. There was an amazing Red sunset due to all of the forest fire smoke in the air. I always thought these unique “fire” sunsets would look pretty dramatic in a photo-shoot and now I have the photos to prove it. Summer is an excellent time to do your engagement photos because there are so many options for places to go. Maybe you are a couple looking to save money by having a Winter wedding, but still would like to have some great photos taken of you in skirts and shorts in a beautiful garden then Summer is a great time of year for these. A gorgeous couple with love on their minds! Enjoy!
I completely dropped the ball on posting photos from this fun couple’s engagement session at the Evergreen Lakehouse back in January! Oops! I had even picked out the photos for it and in my mind I had already done it…. I’ve been crazy busy this Winter though which has been abnormal for me, but also really great because it made the Winter pass by really quick! I can’t believe we’ve already changed to daylight savings time!
Anyways… Michelle & Bryan were awesome! We started talking about ideas on where to do their engagement photos and Michelle said she really wanted pine trees and mountains in the photos and I suggested doing them in Evergreen because it’s close to the city and there’s a lot of great locations to do them. When I mentioned a Winter session at the Evergreen Lakehouse she mentioned it could be busy because of the ice skating rink that they maintain on the lake, which I never knew about. But then I said we can even have you ice skate in some of them! Then she said that’s a great idea because I’m a figure skater and Bryan plays hockey and going to Avalanche games is one of our favorite hobbies! A great idea that involved some of the favorite hobbies of the couple was born! Due to how warm the weather has been this year we almost didn’t get to do the ice skating portion of the photos, but I’m so glad we did! These are completely adorable!!
I can’t wait to shoot your wedding at Willow Ridge Manor this Summer! Thanks for making me a part of your big day! ~Jamie
