Somewhere in the middle of at the moment and always forever, couples spend several months planning one of the biggest milestones of their lives. This is why I love engagement sessions—they mark the start of this beautiful journey, a celebratory first step in building a life together. Even better, an engagement usually comes along with a good story, and Angela and Sunny’s Colorado engagement session was no exception. Their grandmothers have been friends for decades, and while this wasn’t entirely a planned affair, you might say their relationship was written in the cards. We spent the day following the fall colors north of Denver, in Lyons, Colorado with lots of laughter and quiet moments in between. I can’t wait to see them unfold the rest of their wedding story later this year.
