A day of favorites: favorite Breckenridge coffee shop; (one of my) favorite outdoor mountain locations; favorite red dress. Loved every second of the cozy Breckenridge, Colorado winter engagement session last season.
When I first started chatting with Shelby + Michael about their Breckenridge, Colorado winter engagement session, she brought a whole host of ideas to the table. She had a vision and it. was. perfect. The cozy coffee shop cuddles at one of our favorite Breckenridge spots; the quick snaps in town of her red velvet dress; the frozen waterfall, the mountains, the forest. Literally all my favorite things combined to make one beautiful winter engagement session.
We started at The Crown, our favorite little local coffee shop in Breckenridge, for some drinks and cuddles.
Ah, the pre-Covid days. It’s bringing a lot of joy looking through old sessions lately, and this one especially brings up good memories of normal times. An engagement session INSIDE a coffee shop? Without masks? What the heck is going on. It’s similar to how watching movies or shows right now with large crowds and family gatherings makes you feel a little off (jealous/weird/sad/confused, pick your emotion), looking at these images actually makes me so freaking happy, because we’re going to have all that again someday. This isn’t forever and these sweet mask-less coffee shop cuddles will be a possibility again – soon, I hope!
Then, we headed south out of town to a favorite spot, boasting a frozen waterfall, big mountain views, and magical pine trees.
This beautiful spot closes to vehicle traffic every winter, but most seasons late fall allows just enough perfect winter vibes so you can experience the snowy, frozen magic before it closes for the season. Last year was exactly this. The added magic of the snowy mountains, the completely frozen waterfall – does it get any better? Luckily the air was still warm enough to frolic around without needing to bundle or stop for too many warm-up breaks, which gave us tons of time to shoot and really show of Shelby’s red velvet dress and the sweet love between these two.
I think you’ll really love this engagement session. xo
