Sunrise Engagement Session at Fox Run Park
Nearly five years ago, I first met Alison; she was this beautiful, bright-eyed, ambitious high school senior and we did her graduation portraits in Manitou Springs. Since then, I’ve taken their family portraits a couple of times and watched Alison grow into this absolutely amazing young woman. She recently graduated from college and is even a published author (check out her book!! It’s titled In 27 Days and is available on Amazon!). Basically – I feel like a momma bear, SO proud of everything she’s accomplished so far in life.
And we can add “met an equally amazing young man named Tyler, and got engaged” to that list of things I’m so happy about!
Tyler was a server at the same restaurant that Alison was a hostess at, and they quickly fell in love. Then, last December, they went to the 1940s White Christmas Ball in December, which was decorated with sets from popular Christmas movies like White Christmas and It’s a Wonderful Life. They were taking pictures in front of a fake fireplace, and Tyler got down on one knee to propose – totally surprising Alison in the process! I remember seeing their announcement on Facebook, and yelling out to Randy “ahhh! Alison got engaged!!!!” and within a couple days, Alison reached out for us to be her wedding photographers.
We met up with them just a few days ago, on a super cold morning (it “felt like” something like 10 degrees outside) for their sunrise engagement session at Fox Run Park, and had a wonderful morning together. They originally had planned to get married next year, but, with Tyler enlisting into the US Air Force and leaving for basic training soon, they decided to get married a little sooner and we can’t WAIT to go down to Alison’s home parish in Pueblo in just a few weeks!
Randy filmed their engagement session, and their engagement film turned out so awesome! Check it out!
And their photos? AMAZING!! Love that blue-then-golden light at sunrise!
