Maroon Bells Winter Engagement Session, Aspen CO

I have known Austin and Theo since I photographed Austin’s sister, Amy’s, wedding several years back. We met again a few years later when I photographed her other sister, Alex’s wedding and I was stoked when they reached out to me to photograph their engagement this winter in Colorado. The couple flew from Georgia to have their engagement pictures in the snow in one of the most iconic places, Maroon Bells outside of Aspen, CO.


We started the day with a snowmobile ride up to to the Bells, where we had the entire pale to ourselves (a first!) Blanketed with snow, the bells made the most dreamy backdrop for their stylish session. After taking a few pictures our snowmobile guides took out some bread and we had a little fun capturing the birds, a truly Snow White moment!


We watched the sun set behind the mountains and as we started to make our way back down the mountain when we saw 3 moose grazing in the trees, sadly it was too difficult to take a picture of them but it was an incredible sight, the perfect ending to a magical day. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this Fall in Maine, the same place where her sisters were married.

Oh my goodness what an amazing engagement session! You captured their personalities so perfectly and the Maroon bells were the perfect backdrop for this session! 

I’ve never been to Maroon Bells, but it’s on my bucket list and this mountain engagement session makes me want to go even more! Beautiful work! 

I will never EVER stop freaking out about how seriously epic this engagement session at Maroon Bells is! The birds?! Magic. True actual magic. Keep doing your thing because it’s the best thing.

Beautiful adventure session in the snow! Love the snowmobile !

Gorgeous captures!  Adore the champagne pop shots!

These images are absolutely amazing! The birds are SO COOL. And the snow mobile reminds me of Star Wars so that’s an automatic win!

This is way cool!!! I have never seen anything like that with the birds, I would be terrified lol.

WOW! The texture in these images is on point and I love the story you tell with their details! Colorado is stunning but incorporating the birds AND the snowmobile…. solid. Such an amazing engagement shoot. AND THOSE DRESSES!!!!

This is freaking awesome Amy!!! I would dream to have a snowy shoot and especially in Sedona, AZ where I have never been! I loved all the tones, and this marsala dress looks just like perfect cherry on the cake.
