This particular bride had me at hello! Literally. I remember meeting with her and having a really easy connection right off the bat and how within seconds we were chatting casually about some of the things we have in common… being CU grads, avid skiers, Colorado lovers in general, and travel junkies in general. She and her fiance, Jason, met attending CU in Boulder and started dating their senior year in 2008. Jason proposed in Keystone, CO in 2012 while they were having a romantic ski day together. I suggested that we do their engagement session in Boulder on the CU campus, where they first met and fell in love, and that was exactly what she had in mind also. I absolutely LOVE the CU campus. And it’s not just because I am a biased alumni. That campus has some of the most beautiful old buildings and bridges and benches and locations to die for everywhere you turn.
When Jason stepped out of the car on the hill across the street from campus holding their new golden retriever puppy, Frank, I was instantly in love… with ALL of them. Golden Retrievers are one of my most favorite dog breeds in the whole wide world and Frank was about as cute a puppy as I have ever seen. Jason was tall and handsome and immediately warm and easy-going. Alyson was exactly how I remembered her too. Gorgeous. Funny. Sweet. Like an old friend. One of my favorite things about my job is working with clients that I almost feel like I have known forever. It’s a weird fact about my business, but really and truly, it happens a LOT.
Alyson and Jason are getting married in Vail, CO this summer and I absolutely cannot wait to see them again. I know we are going to have an amazing time taking wedding photos and if their engagement photos are any indication of how beautiful they are going to be… well… my portfolio is about to expand in a major way. 🙂
Thank you so much for choosing me for your big day! I sincerely hope to follow you through all the important moments in your life & be your photographer for life.
