When I first met up with Gian and Lawrence to talk about shooting their engagement photos and Estes Park wedding I knew we were a perfect match. They had just moved to Colorado (like, two days before) and were throwing themselves into the lifestyle – exploring the mountains and learning their way around. We clicked instantly.
These guys are fun, adventurous, and love to travel. Not long after they started dating they ran off to Europe for a few weeks. It was on a stop in London that Lawrence handed his camera to a random stranger, dropped to one knee, and popped the question. If that isn’t a good place to get engaged, I don’t know what is!
We went round and round on locations for their engagement shoot. They really wanted a snowy, mountain vibe for their engagement photos which should have been no problem in the middle of the February – but Mother Nature had other ideas. Unseasonably warm weather forced us up to the mountains (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it …). We chose the Brainard Lake area for their photos and it couldn’t have been better!
We parked at the winter trailhead lot and then made the short walk up the road to Red Rock Lake. It was warm and wintry and perfect.
