Colorado Mountain Engagement – Maddie & Mike

FILED IN: Engagements

I first met Maddie at the Sara Gabriel Trunk show hosted by Blue Bridal Boutique. She was surrounded by her mom, aunt, and a few other members of her family. They were loud (heck yeah, my kind of people) and were constantly laughing. I was totally drawn to their excitement and energy. I knew I wanted to meet Maddie in those first few moments. She radiated complete and total joy and I am so thankful that we connected that day. It not only led to a great time, fun pictures, and of course more laughter, but it led me to their mountain engagement. Most of all it lead me to meet the man who loves and adores her. The connections they share are fun, real and intimate. It is a breath of fresh air watching these two talk about their life together. It’s sessions like this that remind me why I do what I do.

Editing Maddie & Mike’s engagement session has been a blast. It has had me swooning and giggling just thinking back to that day. I’m so happy that they chose to hike up to St Mary’s Glacier and even had the courage to get in!! Spending the morning with these two filled my heart with so much happiness. They are adorable and funny and I can’t wait to watch the rest of their love story unfold. Thank you so much Maddie & Mike for allowing me to document such a special moment. Thank you for the laughter and the incredibly sweet card that brought tears to my eyes. It’s been such a pleasure getting to know you and I know that your day will be everything you’ve hoped and dream and… so much more! Congratulations on your engagement and I wish you all the best on your upcoming wedding!

Right out of the gate and already these two were picture perfect!

    […] Maddie & Mike were so sweet. They were warm and open armed from the moment they arrived. It made this rocky hike a blast! We tucked into the trees, got cozy on some rocks, and even froze a little in the glacier fed lake! The way that Mike makes her laugh is priceless. And the way that Maddie looks at Mike… what a thing these two share! […]
