Sarah and Justin’s Rocky Mountain National Park engagement photos were unique to photograph since they took place only one night before their wedding. Lots of folks come from all over the world to get married in the Colorado mountains and sometimes (like Sarah and Justin) they also want engagment photos from their photographer and the only time to get them done is right before your wedding when you come into town. That gave these photos an extra playful and relaxed feel. I don’t think every set of clients could feel this chill and relaxed the night before their wedding, but thankfully I book some super rad people who are!
It was so much fun getting to know them before the wedding, which was at the Stanley Hotel the next day. We adventured around the park to a few different places and good spots to shoot at sunset. It was October, so it was a tad bit chilly too, but it was so much fun! Sarah and Justin are two big Lord of the Rings fans and even had a bit of a hobbity/Lord of the Rings theme at their wedding the next day. That meant hanging out with these two really felt like hanging out with old friends.
