When Chris and Rachael got engaged in Dallas, Texas they knew one thing for sure that they wanted for their engagement photos: they had to be in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Not long after saying "yes!" the two found themselves taking the long drive up into the Rocky Mountains with an engagement session date set for late August. With no preference or clue on where in Breck they wanted their session, they handed location freedom over to me with a heartwarming "we trust you" declaration. Knowing that the two had come all the way from Dallas, I knew I had to deliver on some seriously epic views for them, but we also wanted to avoid a long hike. After a bit of searching and researching, I felt Blue Lakes would be a perfect spot for them. It fit the bill of epic mountain views with no hiking required, and was only about 25 minutes outside of downtown Breck.

When I asked them how Blue Lakes sounded, they jumped on it and just like that, we had our location!

The day of Chris and Rachael's engagement session was absolutely beautiful. We had some gorgeous weather, and an even more gorgeous sunset. Throughout their session we focused on capturing both the romantic side, and the playful side of their truly adorable relationship. The whole time we spent together was filled with laughter and fun, and we produced some of my favorite engagement photos yet. Despite the two not having their photos professionally taken together prior, they totally nailed their session and are proof you don't need to have experience in front of the camera to create some jaw dropping photos.
