I can’t tell you how excited I am to OFFICIALLY be a wedding photographer in Colorado!!! If you missed our HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT, head over and check it out!!!!

In just a few short months, our family will be settled in the Colorado Springs area, and I will be trading beach coastlines for mountain and lake views like this!

Wedding Photographer in Colorado Springs | Vanessa Hicks Photography

Imagine my surprise when I was looking through some of my Colorado engagement photos galleries to share with you, and of course, I knew that I needed to share Thomas and Jenna with you!

And then I got even MORE excited when I looked and saw that this location is less than an hour from Colorado Springs, the area we are looking to live!!

This amazing engagement session took place right at sunrise! Now, before you think you would never do a sunrise engagement session, here are a few things to consider:

  • The location where you are capturing your engagement photos! For locations like this, the sun would set behind the mountain range pretty early. Not saying that there would not have been an epic sunset, but wait til you see the sunrise here! It was beautiful! Sometimes, due to the direction in which the sun sets and/or rises that time of year, sunrise can be the best option!
  • Also based on location, you do need to consider how populated the location is. If you want a busy beach, park, or another high-traffic location for your engagement photos, sunrise with fewer people will always be best!

Jenna and Thomas were so much fun during their engagement session! Within the time of our session, which is usually about an hour to an hour and a half, we had a beautiful sunrise, two outfit changes, played in the lake, and captured so much love!!

See for yourself!

In case you are wondering, YES, we have a lot of fun during your engagement session, and of course your wedding day too!
