I have known this beautiful young woman for fifteen years – she was the flower girl in my wedding! I can’t believe she is about to marry the man of her dreams, and I could not be more excited for them as they step out into this grand adventure together. Life is so much fun with someone by your side to experience it. I am so happy to still be a part of her life, and it feels like just yesterday she was dropping petals down aisle. It’s been such a pleasure watching her grow up into the amazing woman she has become. Life will come full circle when my daughters get to be the flower girls in her wedding next summer. Wow!
For Lili and Colton’s engagement session, I wanted to take them to one of my favorite spots near Pagosa Springs. Colorado is filled with gorgeous backdrops, but there’s just something about this place that takes my breath away. A wide-open field of green grass sways at the foothills, and the mountains behind look absolutely surreal when the evening sun shines across the sides. At certain times of year, soft pink flowers dot the pasture, and we even had some friendly cows munching nearby for these photos. Even Photoshop can’t create natural beauty like this.
We all had so much fun during their session. They twirled, jumped, and laughed until the sun set behind the trees. Their chemistry is amazing. They each seemed to know what the other was saying just by a facial expression. And the way they looked at each other during an inside joke was so refreshing to see. Sweet Lili really has found The One, and I have no doubt they will live a fun-filled, adventurous life together.
Now, the countdown to wedding day is on! I can’t wait! Congratulations, Lili and Colton!
