Crags Trail- Ben & Janna's Adventure Engagement Session
Ben & Janna's hiking engagement session was nothing short of perfect!
We had the most amazing location, Crags Trail in Divide, Colorado. We were the only ones on the trail after passing a few hikers coming down. The weather was a mix of golden sun with a slight breeze and we got to watch a storm roll through the Great Continental Divide while the sun was setting.
Here is a little backstory!
When Janna first contacted me about an engagement session I knew we were going to get along great! Easy going, creative and super fun! Not to mention her and Ben's dog Pepper is just the cutest Instagram puppy star around! Our initial date was in June but with an illness and then a sudden loss for my family we pushed it back to July 26th- and man are we glad we did!
Janna and I poured through locations until settling on the Crags Trail which runs up the back of Pikes Peak. Giving us epic views with just a few miles of hiking.
We watched the weather like hawks...it's been raining so much here in Colorado that we were worried about getting poured on- Thank goodness the rain held off the entire time. The hike was just the right amount of difficult, we only saw a few people on the way up and had the summit all to ourselves to watch the sunset on the horizon. We wanted to try something fun and waited until it was darker to head back down so we could grab a few shots using the headlamps we brought along- I think we did pretty damn well!
Ben and Janna will be getting married next August back in their home state of New York with their closest friends and family members. I wish I could explain to you how genuine and sweet these two are. I am beyond honored that that chose me to photograph their engagement here in Colorado.
