Boulder Colorado Sunrise Engagement Session

I’ve never been a morning person. I mean, I’ll totally get up if I have to but if I have the option, sleeping in until about 8AM is much more my style. But when it comes to beautiful locations and love stories, I will get up at the crack of dawn to ensure those love stories are captured with the most beautiful light!

When Taylor and I chose her and Ryan’s location for their engagement session and told her the light would be best at sunrise and it would be less crowded, home girl did not even hesitate! She was all in. Which, I have to say, I love so much about her and Ryan. They were both all about the adventure and willing to sacrifice a few Z’s to shoot at Lost Gulch Overlook in Boulder, CO.

One thing I love to do with all my couples is talk about their engagement story. Everyone’s stories are so different, and it tells you a lot about a couple, their style, who they are, and what speaks to their souls. Taylor and Ryan have one of the most fun, personal proposals ever! Taylor is a huge lover of Halloween, and they decided to tour a haunted mansion in Billings that she loves. Once she turned the corner, there were these perfectly placed little pumpkins with the carved words “Will You Marry Me?” And as if it couldn’t get any better, it was written in Harry Potter letters and had Harry Potter music playing. In case you weren’t sure, Taylor is also in love with all things Harry Potter.

To top it off, Taylor and Ryan are also fellow crazy dog parents (my favorite kind of people)! They decided to bring their adorable pug, Olive to their session and I loved every minute of working with her! It was a super windy, chilly morning and she was shaking so we made sure she got lots of snuggles, kisses and some breaks here and there so she could warm up in the car.

I’m so dang excited for their wedding at Lionsgate next year! I can’t believe we have to wait until October 2020!
