I’ve found some super awesome places for engagement sessions and/or elopements and here is one of them! This spot is only 50ish minutes from downtown Colorado Springs and sosososo accessible! Like, literally drive, park, hike 5 minutes, and we’re there. So, if you want a gorgeous location and you don’t want to work super hard to get there, this is the spot for you lol. Okie, I won’t make you want any longer, check out this recent Colorado Springs engagement session.
Here we go:
Kelsey reached out looking for a Colorado engagement session saying they 1) were new to Colorado and needed help choosing a location 2) are normally city people but wanted to take advantage of living in such a beautiful place 3) Definitely wanted to include their doggo, Darcy. I sent Kelsey + Ian a list of pretty locations and we settled on this one. I’m super pumped to finally get this session up on my blog!
Okay, so we arrived at the same time, hiked up to the spot, and it immediately started to drizzle lol. Classic Colorado but honestly it was FIIIIINE! We took some photos until hair/makeup would have been ruined and then found a tree to hide under. We talked about life, their recent move to Colorado, Darcy, and their plans to elope in the San Francisco City Hall! The drizzle finally stopped, we found our way back, and tried to be snappy just in case the rain started again. There was a bomb playlist in the background—think Drake and Daniel Caesar. I see these photos and instantly start humming those songs lol.
Anyways, they killed it. So much affection and I looooooove to see it! The sun started to set, the wind died down, and the sky turned pretty colors. I think about them often, mainly because I keep up with all of my couples on Instagram (lol), BUT, also, because I had suuuchhhh a great time. It was honestly the perfect day for a Colorado Springs engagement session!
