Colorado Foggy Mountain Engagement with Paul and Hilary
Being a natural light outdoor Colorado wedding and engagement photographer I am 100% at the mercy of Colorado weather. So this means being able to go with the flow and be super flexible. Colorado weather isn't even really predictable until 3 days out and even then, you just really don't know. You need to embrace what is given to you and see the magic that is meant to be.
For Paul and Hilary's engagement session the weather was not looking like it was going to cooperate. Rain on and off for most of the day and lightning thunderstorms in the afternoon. I'm okay with some rain, but lightning storms in the mountains is an absolute no. We watched the weather as the thunderstorms were starting at 3pm, then 5pm, maybe 8pm. Because this was the only day that it was going to work for our schedules we decided to take the gamble and head up to Mount Falcon and take a chance. If we heard thunder we would close up shop and hope to do our photo shoot another time.
Hilary and Paul were amazing. They came looking like models out of magazines. I was so in love with Hilary's gorgeous flowy dresses. Their sense of style was outstanding. I wish I could take credit for this style but that was all of them. As always, I was thrilled they brought their pup Axel too and Paul's mom was there to assist with Axel which I always love and appreciate!
We shot for about 2 hours, and there was no rain, no thunder, no lighting, just gorgeous moody fog that produced magic that I couldn't have predicted. Sometimes you think you know what you want, and then you get handed exactly what you need. I'm so glad the weather wasn't Colorado typical sun and bright. It put the spotlight on Paul and Hilary's love that shines much brighter than the sun. Congratulations to Paul and Hilary! I am wishing you a lifetime of happiness.
