The first time I met Candace and Bret was at their engagement shoot... and we had the BEST time ever! Normally I get to meet couples before their engagement photos, but Candace and Bret are from Texas and booked me over the phone. We had a great time planning their engagement shoot to showcase their fun, relaxed relationship. They drove 12 hours up from Texas to Colorado Springs and we did an awesome two-part shoot. The first part was a cocktail bar engagement shoot at the Blue Star on S. Tejon in Colorado Springs. They were kind enough to also let us take engagement photos in their private wine cellar. It was an engagement shoot for cocktail and wine-lovers alike! Then we got to explore the outside and go on an adventure at Rock Ledge ranch and get gorgeous views of the south end of Garden of the Gods. It was so sunny and beautiful and there was lots of laughter, piggyback rides, and running around in backlit meadows. We had an amazing time and I can't wait to be their wedding photographer at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs later this year!
