I find snow to be super romantic and cozy. Ok, so maybe that’s how I trick myself into surviving the endless winter we’re having in New England, but I think Katie Parra would agree with me. Her pics of this adorable couple’s engagement shoot are sure to inspire some outdoor affection, and while I still may prefer to stay bundled up on my couch, these pics are guaranteed to warm me right up.
From Katie Parra Photography… Two days before Christmas I had the pleasure of photographing Jon and Susan in my hometown of Littleton, CO. Jon is a childhood friend of mine and when he asked if I would photograph his wedding I couldn’t have been more excited! Jon and Susan met while attending the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Susan now works for the State Department and Jon has just started medical school….needless to say they are crazy busy. So I was excited when Jon mentioned he was going to be bringing Susan to our hometown for Christmas. I hopped on a plane and flew to Denver and was given the most beautiful snowy day as our backdrop for their engagement session. I have a friend who lives on the most magical piece of property up Deer Creek Canyon and was so thankful she allowed us to shoot up there. Jerry Lee her German Shepherd decided to join in on our fun, as well as a few looky-loo deer! Jon and Susan are such a great match…let’s just say I didn’t have to coach them on when to kiss and when to smile…they did lots of that all on their own. I can’t wait for their wedding next July at the Naval Academy!
