Jordan & Max

Colorado Mountain Engagement Session
A scenic snowy mountain, a couple in love- and their fur baby, does it get any better than that? We certainly don’t think so. Jordan and Max are one of those couples who absolutely radiate happiness. From the way they look at each other, to how they care for their dog, Kaya, this pair is truly unique.
The couple hiked into Chautauqua Park, a location with history as rich as Jordan and Max’s love story. The historic landmark dates back over 100 years, to the time when the city of Boulder had just started allotting land for preservation. In 1898 citizens of Boulder approved 80 acres of land to house a Chautauqua assembly- a space for speakers, teachers, musicians, entertainers, preachers and specialists of the day to teach late 19th century and early 20th century adults- and the breathtaking Chautauqua Park was born. Even more special, this Chautauqua is the only one west of the Mississippi River still in operation.
With a history like that, exploring this gorgeous park was even more meaningful for both us and the couple. Seemingly oblivious to the historical importance of the area, Kaya bounded in front of us in the snow– sniffing plants and exploring as Jordan and Max snuggled, kissed, and laughed. The couple was so wrapped up in each other that they didn’t even notice their noses turning red from the cold, and continued to smile and hold hands throughout the session.
This winter wonderland engagement session couldn’t get any more magical until two deer ran across our path. Symbolic of the couple’s kindred spirits perhaps, the sighting only added to the magic in the air. The photographer said, “working with a couple this obviously in love makes our job not only easy, but rewarding.” Watching Jordan and Max celebrate their love and happiness can only be described as extraordinary, and the photos prove it.
