I know Samy and David through mutual friends, and after they got engaged I was so stoked when they asked me to do their wedding photography. While they used to live in Breckenridge, they recently moved to Florida, but since they are having a Breckenridge wedding this summer they decided to do their engagement photos in Colorado as well. And in true Colorado style, they picked an epic backcountry skiing engagement session at the top of Loveland Pass.
We talked about everything from standup paddleboarding to a hut trip, but finally settled on backcountry skiing / splitboarding AND rock climbing! (I’ll be sharing their rock climbing photos in a separate post!) I absolutely love it when my couples pick an activity for their engagement sessions, since it brings so much life to their photos! And even better, we scheduled in a brunch break with our friends in Denver in between their sessions.
We did this session on a cold morning in December. It was around 20 degrees at the top of Loveland Pass, not counting the wind chill, but we all bundled up and hiked up to find the perfect slope. Their dog Roxy was hiking along with us, and was having so much fun chasing after picas, while her parents were skiing down the slopes in style! I’m especially impressed that Samy rocked that blue dress in those temperatures, but I think adrenaline kept us all going.
