Garden of the Gods Engagement Photos ~ Christina & Mike

These Garden of the Gods engagement photos blew me away. I just love this location – the dramatic, red rock formations and Pike’s Peak looming in the distance. It’s also a fantastic spot for an elopement or intimate wedding – free and very accessible. Read on to learn more about this engagement session at one of Colorado’s most iconic natural wonders. 

Christina & Mike

This story is about Christina & Mike, the chillest couple in Colorado. I loved their calm energy and comfort with each other. Mike, quiet and reserved, and Christina, bubbly and gentle, made such a good pair. 

These two got engaged during this first camping trip together, which says a lot! First travels and camping trips with a romantic partner can be make it or break it. Clearly, it made it for these two 😉

Garden of the Gods Engagement Photos

As you’ll see in the photos, Garden of the Gods is a very unique and bold location. Right outside Colorado Springs on the Front Range, GotG is also extremely easy to visit! 

It was gifted to the City of Colorado Springs in 1909 on the conditions that it remains free and open to the public forever. Which makes it a great location for a elopement, even if you have a few guests. Garden of the Gods wedding anyone?

This little park packs a huge punch. A couple one way roads wind around to several different areas of the park. For this Garden of the Gods engagement session, we explored the Central Garden, where you can get up close and personal with some of the rock formations. You can even belay climb here with the right permit!

  • Collaborative direction before & during photos so you look and feel your best 
  • A no-judgement zone where you can feel free to be your silliest and most in-love self

About Me

Couples who dare to be different are ditching the impersonal, traditional wedding for a pressure-free elopement day that is 100% about them.

As an elopement photographer, I empower couples with the guidance and confidence they need to get bold and emotional photographs that are a reflection of who they truly are.

I know how it feels to want badass photos that don’t feel contrived or awkward. And I want to let you know - I am here for YOU! 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.

If you’re a freedom-seeker, adventure-seeker, story-seeker (I like hiking and books!) I think we’ll get along. Let’s chat to confirm that!
