Sunrise Engagement Session at Maroon Bells | Aspen, Colorado

Casey & Stephen | Engaged

I decided I’m gonna keep this short and sweet, because let’s be honest… who’s going to spend their time reading when there are these GORGEOUS MOUNTAINS just waiting to be admired? But in reality– I couldn’t imagine anyone better to photograph at Maroon Bells than Casey and Stephen. They are getting married in Columbus next summer, but right now Colorado is their home and it only seemed fitting to capture their engagement photos in the place where they’re spending that special season of life.

Casey was a bridesmaid in one of my weddings last summer (check out Jessica and Rick’s special day here!) and I was so excited when she reached out about her own wedding! She and Stephen have been together for YEARS, and they are just so comfortable together! Stephen is an elementary school teacher, and his sense of humor matches perfectly with Casey’s glowing smile. He even picked a flower for Casey during the session, because he picks a flower for her on every hike they do together… how sweet are they?! We met up at the crack of dawn at the entrance to Maroon Bells (major props to them for looking spectacular; I definitely had that rolled-out-of-bed look) and watched the sun rise over the mountains. Talk about stunning! I’ve been chatting enough now though… enjoy some of my MANY favorites from our time together!!
