Engagement Portraits in Colorado Springs :: Diana + Cody

Colorado Springs engagement portraits

Check out these adorable, vintage themed engagement portraits! I just can’t even with these two. I mean look at them, they are too cute! Cody and Diana are finally tying the knot next month after many years of togetherness, and I for one can’t wait. They’re such a perfect match for each other!

Diana will be wearing her grandmother’s 1940s wedding gown on their big day. I’m told it’s beautiful and perfectly preserved, and she will be the third bride in the family to be wearing it. I love traditions like that. In keeping with the 1940s idea, they wanted their engagement portraits to have a retro vibe. I hand picked some of my favorite locations for this shoot, including the old Tasty Freeze on North Weber and the fascinating, underappreciated Trolley Car Museum in Roswell. I think these settings made a perfect backdrop for their cute pictures! Also, Diana is a fan of vintage style, and she has the perfect, va-voom hourglass figure to pull off 1940s and ’50s fashions like this wiggle dress. She looked fantastic! Meanwhile, Cody looked pretty cool himself in his newsboy cap and suspenders. Great styling all around!

I think Cody and Diana’s fun, upbeat personalities and obvious chemistry really shine through in these cute pictures. How can you not smile when you’re looking at them? I can’t wait for their wedding, it’s going to be such a blast!

Engagement portraits at home :: Lauren + Ben

Ben and Lauren’s unique, art-filled home was the perfect backdrop for their Colorado Springs engagement portraits. I love how well they dressed for these, but then again they’re a very sartorially savvy couple. (Check out art gallery owner Lauren’s gorgeous Louboutin heels!) I can’t wait to see her in her wedding dress. She’s going to look magnificent!

Engagement portraits at Mueller State Park :: Samantha + Joe

Mueller State Park engagement portraits

These Mueller State Park engagement portraits were a special treat for me to do. Samantha is a long time client and I’m very fond of her. I’ve been photographing her since she was a teenager! Over the years I’ve documented quite a few milestones in Samantha’s and her family’s lives, but I’m extra excited about this one: she’s engaged to a great guy! Their wedding is scheduled for next summer and I can’t wait! In October I spent a glorious, golden afternoon with Joe, Samantha and her daughter Izzy at beautiful Mueller State Park, taking their engagement portraits and a few family portraits to boot.

As far as big vistas go, it doesn’t get much more breathtaking than Mueller State Park. It’s one of my favorite places to visit, especially in October. I love this time of year and I love how these special portraits came out. I can’t wait for Samantha and Joe’s wedding at Mount Princeton Hot Springs. It’s going to be amazing!

Belmar Park engagement portraits :: Melanie + Ben

I took these sweet engagement portraits of Melanie and Ben at Belmar Park and the Lakewood Heritage Center about a week and-a-half ago. We did them at the end of the day, when the sun was slanting through the trees, creating a golden glow. Melanie and Ben are adorable together as you can see — there were so many great pictures of them, I had a hard time narrowing them down for this post! I’m really looking forward to their wedding next month at the Denver Public Library. It’s going to be wonderful!
