About this time last year, we were hanging out with Suzanne, sipping on boba teas, and casually talking about what they wanted to do for their engagement pictures. Suzanne mentioned that they couldn’t schedule for a certain date because they were attending an event out of town. We asked were they were going and found out it was Colorado. We jokingly threw out that we’d meet them there for their pictures. (Let’s be real, we don’t have mountains like Colorado does. Pfft, show offs.) Of course, we were kind of serious. And so was Suzanne. Not too long after, we found ourselves in Colorado!
We made the trip to Aspen, making random stops along the way. There was just so much breath-taking scenery to be had! We can’t recall the first place we stopped, but we do remember how perfectly turquoise the water was. The sun was still really high, and there was much sweat that we’d rather not discuss, but we had one heck of a time!
Not too long after, we made it to the one and only Maroon Bells. We missed the sunset but it was still quite a sight to see. Pictures don’t so it justice, but we can just focus on how friggin sweet Jim + Suzanne were. Splashing through clear waters, frolicking through flowered-covered meadows.. so romantic, right? And of course we had to meander through the dark forest for a few pictures before leaving. Aside from the mosquitos, it was perfection.
Our time in Colorado was brief, but oh so worth it. We came away with these pretty snazzy pics, new life-long pals, and an adventure for the books. Suzanne + Jim are getting married pretty soon and we are so, so stoked to be a part of it!
Cheers to the next chapter, friends! =)
