A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting Alyssa, her husband + their dog Beau!  I officially met Alyssa last year, at the Foodbuzz festival, but she actually lives about two hours South in Colorado Springs.  Alyssa contacted me a few months back, asking if I could take their two year anniversary photos.  I was honored she asked!

For their shoot, we headed to Old Colorado City + Garden of the Gods, both in CO Springs.  This was my first real “couple” shoot, so of course I was a bit nervous.  We walked + chatted for a few minutes to catch up and then got to business.  My nerves vanished as soon as I started clicking away.  Alyssa + her husband were adorable and so easy to work with.

Beau, however, was definitely testing me!  Moving subjects are much more complicated to photograph than food! :)

And can I just say…how gorgeous is Alyssa??  Her outfit, boots, hair, and that smile?  Beautiful!

These two are definitely still smitten over each other!

We headed to Garden of the Gods for the second round of photos.  I had never been there before and was in complete awe.  The landscape is breathtaking!
