Travis and Emily are from Louisiana, and it was so much fun getting to show them around the mountains. I couldn't believe how much snow was still on the ground, in May! But with their enthusiasm for it, I became excited about the snowy backdrop all over again.
I remember the first time I met Vanessa. We were both pregnant and at the midwives, meeting a group of mothers who were all due around the same time as us. I immediately fell in love with her gorgeous red hair, and her smile was so joyful it was infectious. She is the kind of woman who lights up a room when she walks in.
We started talking about engagement photos and I suggested we take a hike in the mountains for the shoot and take pictures along the way. They were really excited about this, since they spend so much time hiking in the rockies, and I was excited that we would create real memories for them to look back on, that would reflect so well who they are as a couple.
