This is a session that I hold near and dear to my heart. First of all, the groom-to-be is my cousin, Kevin, so I’m perhaps a little biased. Our families grew up just a few streets over from each other which meant many holidays and Super Bowls and birthdays were spent running around backyards, all the cousins in a pack playing games and joking around. My siblings and I had a really wonderful childhood, and having our cousins right down the street was a huge part of that.
Second, Kevin has found the most fabulous and lovely gal to share his life with, and getting a chance to spend an afternoon with the two of them was a true delight. We shared a lot of laughs as we chased the quickly fading light, and despite the stress of being stuck at a ranger station because of insufficient parking while we watched the sun slip, slip, slip behind the mountains, we still managed to have a wonderful time.
Third, look at Colorado in the fall! It is glorious and beautiful.
So let’s get into it.
Those are the Maroon Bells featured there so nobly behind Ellery and Kevin. The fall colors have been a bit sporadic in Colorado this year, due to frost and a very wet summer, but we still managed to find some of those vibrant yellows to play with.
Kevin and Ellery, we can’t wait for your wedding next summer! Thank you for bringing us up to Aspen and humoring us as we tromped around with lights and gear and didn’t once question our sanity as we said “hey, you probably won’t fall of that rock if you perch precariously on it, so let’s go for it.”
