Maroon Bells Winter Engagement Session, Aspen CO // Austin & Theo

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.
