Colorado Chautauqua Engagement Session


Yahna + Mark | Colorado Chautauqua Engagement Session

Yahna and Mark’s Colorado Chautauqua engagement session was a sunshine dream for me! I first met the two down on the Pearl Street Mall for happy hour. Getting to know the people I work with before any session or wedding is a huge priority of mine for several reasons. It sets us both at ease to not have an icebreaking period while the camera is rolling, especially for a wedding! I am not some stranger documenting their love, getting the chance to become acquainted gives me an understanding of their love and what is important to reflect in the photographs.  At a recent meeting the couple I met with reminded me that communication is the key to any relationship and that includes a client/vendor one. From my experience having the in person opportunity to establish a flow of communication and connection certainly yields the best results.  I strive to take photos of significance, to capture moments that hold weight and are of a candid nature and it is easier to hide in the bushes when the couples I work with aren’t painfully aware that some lady is snapping frames of their intimate interactions.

We planned for lots of sunshine at their Colorado Chautauqua engagement session and the fire in the sky surely did not disappoint! A Colorado Chautauqua engagement session was perfect for these two because Boulder has meaning to them! Their meet cute is very cute! They met at the Boulder Craft Beer Festival and their wedding date and the date we took the engagement photos falls within the anniversary the festival. I am a huge on the circular significance of things, especially dates and numbers and I simply loved that they incorporated craft beer into the end of their session. I also have so much appreciation for how intelligent and what great senses of humor these two engineers have (and it was cool to find out we have a similar background!)

I know their wedding will be off the charts awesome and I look forward for what’s to come!
