There’s something magical that happens as you make your way up the mountains of Colorado. Driving to this location, I am just truly blown away and so very excited to be here as a Breckenridge Photographer, living my dreams in magical locations with equally magical people!

It’s funny how life works.

These beautiful images were captured YEARS before making the announcement that we are moving to Colorado summer of 2023! I knew even THEN, that something was calling me to Colorado! I never imagined moving to Colorado, so I would just be satisfied as a destination wedding photographer just traveling to Colorado for work.

Lauren is an INCREDIBLE Elopement photographer herself! Let me tell you, it’s not easy photographing another photographer, especially one that is as amazing as Lauren!

Lauren and Andrew are also Colorado transplants as well, and also a prior military family as well! Lauren knows all about moving her business, living apart from the one you love, and hoping they make it home from their deployments. Military spouses carry a heavy burden, one I know all too well!

When I told Lauren I was coming into town, she was TOTALLY down for meeting up and showing me around! Earlier that week, we headed up to Loveland Pass to swap headshots with each other, and I got to experience my first wave of altitude sickness!

Yeah, this island girl has to get used to things like altitude!!!!

Lauren and Andrew met me and took me up to this incredible location for their couple photos!

We are going to IGNORE the bear signs that I saw LOL!

It was beautiful! This pristine lake, the rocks in the middle, the snow-capped Colorado Mountains, and Andrew and Lauren’s love to warm each other up!

Don’t believe me…..take a look!
