Colorado Lakeside Engagement Photos ~ Andrew & Missy

Photographing Andrew & Missy for this Colorado lakeside engagement session was so. Much. Fun! These two brough lots of playfulness and energy and we ended up having a blast at the Brainard Lake Recreation Area. Scroll on to see all the fun these two goofballs had!

Andrew & Missy

This story is about Andrew & Missy, a super fun couple with infectious laughs and smiles. These two are super affectionate and you can tell they just love being all over each other! 

Piggyback rides and jumping around are just part of who they are. I loved the energy they brought to their engagement session. 

They asked me to meet in the morning for this engagement session because they already had the day off from work. Turns out – they had plans to get matching tattoos after the session! Though the tattoos were not going to be identical, they showed me the base design they had for their pinup/Harley-Davidson themed tattoos. It was just like them – sassy & playful. 

Colorado Lakeside Engagement Session

For this engagement session, Missy & Andrew really wanted to embrace the beauty of Colorado. And what better place than Brainard Lake Recreation Area! This recreation space outside of Boulder has all the Colorado classics – gorgeous mountain views, alpine lakes, and miles of walking trails!

These are a couple of fun outdoorsy people, so the location was perfect for their engagement photography. We went down to Red Rock Lake and had lots of space to explore and play. 

We even saw a moose! She was grabbing some lunch on the other side of the lake 😉

I strive to create an experience inclusive of couples of all races, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities, races, ethnicities, abilities. Because when you feel able to be true to yourself, your photographs will be bold & emotional.
