Mountain Engagements

Idaho Mountain Engagements • Rocky Mountain Wedding Photographer

Kicking off blogging on my new website with a couple who is the epitome of my new brand! Christina and Spencer are everything I ever wanted in my couples! These two came all the way from Kentucky for epic engagement photos in the Rocky Mountains of Idaho. We tossed around a couple location ideas back in March when Christina first emailed me. Good thing she booked it so far in advance because my summer is already getting so crazy! I told both her and Spencer I was grateful she took the time in advance to make plans so I had the opportunity to show them my Idaho.

The moment I started document Christina and Spencer’s chemistry, I couldn’t get enough! Their upbeat and adventurous personalities made our session together worth while! We hiked up a few of my favorite spots and honestly drove all over the place as I wanted to get them as much variety since they weren’t from the area. I love having couples who “ooo” and “ahhh” with me at how gorgeous Idaho is! One of my favorite parts of this session is the overcast skies we had! While some photographers prefer pretty light, in the mountains, I love having overcast to show the outlines of the mountains all around us! Another one of my favorite parts was how Christina and Spencer made this session their own! They brought a bottle of Champagne to pop during the session and blankets of their grandparents that we also included in their photos. This session is seriously what I aspire all my sessions to be like. Adventure, romance, and the Rocky Mountains!

Kamlyn + Cole • Adventure Session

I was talking to Darcy of Ruby Plum Photo about what we want to do when I come to Colorado in October. She mentioned so many awesome ideas that got me really excited to visit. At the end of our conversation she said we would need to follow up with each other with answers to a couple different questions. One of which was, "What would I love to photograph?" The moment she asked me that, I thought back to this shoot I did a little over a week ago. 

I had this amazing vision in my head since the moment I began to specialize in couples. I wanted mountains, waterfall, aspen trees, gorgeous couple madly in love, and a floral dress. The only thing we were missing that day that I thought I wanted was some pretty sun coming through the trees. But it turned out the gloomy, cloudy weather brought on a whole new mood for the shoot that I fell in love with! 

Kamlyn and Cole were PERFECTION for this session! Literally. Look at these two! They giggled when I asked, slowed danced with the music, and were more than happy to kiss. I could not have asked for a better couple to fulfill my vision for this shoot. Thank you again Kamlyn and Cole! 

Jacob also finished the video from that night and it will bring you all the feels. This waterfall is breath taking! I can't believe we were still in Idaho for it! Make sure to change the video quality to 1080p HD.
