I went to college with Jessica and we had a few art classes together. She is stunning to say the least! So when I found out I would get the chance to photograph her engagement session and her upcoming wedding I was so excited!! She wore this gorgeous jumpsuit for part of her session with some unique jewelry, and she ended the session in some boots, jeans and a striking leather jacket!! I had never had the chance to meet Jordan before that day, and he was super nice! They had such bold chemistry and I could tell they got along great. We started near Boettcher Mansion in Golden which is surrounded by tall yellow grass, and worked our way over to Lookout Mountain Park where there are stunning views. Colorado is gorgeous!! We hung around until sunset, and then we got creative with some fun lighting scenarios. They were playful and romantic all at the same time. So easy to work with because they naturally looked great in front of the camera!

Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?

Jordan and I first met my Freshman year and his Sophomore year of college at a Halloween party. We instantly clicked and made it official the following month.


What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. (example: pushing each other to new limits, love to travel, huge comic book fans, foodies, etc.) What makes your relationship unique?

Jordan and I are both very active and love experiences new things together. We love traveling the world, hiking the Colorado mountains and cuddling with out two rescue puppies. We also love staying in and trying a new recipes together.


How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship?

I knew my fiance was the one after 2 months. He treated me differently than any other guy before. I knew he was different right away and that he was the one for me.


Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?

Jordan and I graduated college together and then went on a month long backpacking trip throughEurope. We went to Iceland, Belgium, Germany, Poland and finally Norway. Jordan booked us a 12 hour roundtrip hike to Troll Tunga in Norway. At the top of the “Troll’s Tongue” he got down on one knee and proposed. It was the most gorgeous place I have ever been and that is where I got engaged.


We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!

I have a princess cut halo ring and I absolutely love it!


Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?

Jordan and I are getting married at Flying Horse Ranch in Larkspur, CO. We are having a string quartet, a coffee food truck and a cigar bar for the guys. We are so excited to add our own passions into our wedding. For me coffee and for him cigars.
