My cute, creative friends Schae and Kye (you might know them because I’ve photographed them multiple times and they’re all over my website and instagram hehe) told me they were coming to town and we decided to put together a casual little styled shoot in Fort Collins. We found Jessie and JJ on Instagram and we knew we liked them the second they told us they brought cookies. Emma and Grace Bridal in Denver loaned us a dress and it’s freaking gorgeous but you don’t need me to tell you that just look below. Brianna Joy did Jessie’s hair and make-up and holy hell guys. She killed it. I sent her some inspo pics to go off of and the second I saw Jessie my jaw dropped it was so perfect. And Bliss Wedding Florist in Fort Collins did the bouquet and flower crown and *que Colton Underwood voice* crushed it. Really really grateful for everyone who made this happen. Make sure to watch Kye’s video at the end of this post. He’s so insanely talented it’s really just unfair.

Karley and I met studying abroad in Florence a few years ago. I was in Colorado for the weekend and asked if she and her cute boy would want to model for a shoot I had in mind. They were so game and I couldn't have been happier. I mean LOOK at that backdrop.
beth + bobby
Bobby proposed to Beth in the Grand Canyon, so I figured they were perfect for this little Badlands shoot. These two were so game - I had them running, jumping, spinning, dancing, everything. We had so much fun and they are just the coolest people. Can't wait to capture their wedding next Fall!
kalli + jason
Kalli and Jason are my beautiful best friends that I force to model for me whenever they're in town. This day we went out to a frozen lake as the sun went down. The sky was pink and amazing and made for the perfect night. I love my friends.
courtney + micah
Courtney and I grew up together, so it was so fun to see her so happy and in love. They have the cutest little house so I was stoked when she told me that's where they wanted to shoot. These two are as cute as it gets and I can't wait to meet their little babe!
Fun fact: Micah got a drill bit to the ankle the day before the shoot trying to hang the mirror above the couch. He was a bit sore, but he was such a trooper and didn't complain once!
