Picking out my favorite photos from this engagement session may have been my hardest task this week. Emily and Ben are an adorable and loving couple and I had such a blast taking their Golden Gate Canyon engagement photos. I knew when I photographed Amy & Mark’s wedding at Golden Gate Canyon this summer it would be the perfect location to come back to for fall photos. There are Aspen trees everywhere and it’s only an hour outside of Denver. With weather issues and a delayed color changing this year I asked the ranger where the best place for fall color was. She advised a hike and Emily and Ben were game. Roundtrip it was only 3.5 miles but with the setting sun we had keep up the pace to get to the top. It was so worth it! The setting sun and gorgeous color made for an awesome backdrop for their photos. Add in a few fun props like an engaged sign, a bottle of champagne they got when they bought their first house, and a lot of laugh and kisses and it was magical. Congrats you two! I can’t wait for your wedding next fall at Planet Bluegrass!
