Rachel and Mitch's Fall Engagement Session at Brainard Lake Recreational Area - Colorado Mountai



Rachel and Mitch are a breath of fresh air. They are fun-loving, passionate, and excited about life. When I met them months back at Wonderland Brewing to chat wedding details, we immediately hit it off and I knew this couple would be a joy to work with. They originally chose Rocky Mountain National Park as the backdrop for engagement photos, but after I arrived early the day of their photos to "Elk Fest" weekend in Estes, I frantically called the couple to re-think our plans. With grid-locked traffic and about 2598135091 people in the area, I knew trying to take photos there would be nothing more than an exercise in frustration. These two were super flexible and we changed our plans to hit up the Brainard Lake area!

With peak fall color and beautiful aspen groves in the area, there was no shortage of perfect photo opportunities. Rachel and Mitch are planning an urban summer wedding downtown Denver next August and I cannot wait to share in their joy!
