Carly + Adam | Crested Butte Colorado Adventure Session

Carly and Adam are some of our favorite clients turned friends. We shot their engagement photos last summer at the Great Sand Dunes National Park. It is still one of my ALL TIME favorite sessions - you can find it on our blog if you want to!

Fast forward a year later and we were going to shoot her best friend’s wedding down in one of the most beautiful places in Colorado - Crested Butte. Since it was a 4 hour drive and we were making a weekend out of it, I thought I’d ask Carly if they would be down to wake up at the butt crack of dawn for sunrise to take some pics and explore Crested together. She said HELL YES and I did a happy dance in my kitchen when she texted me back!

We woke up at 5:00 am and met them at our hotel. We started at Peanut Lake and just drove around all over different dirt roads in the mountains to find gorgeous scenery, and boy did we find it. We discovered some of the most gorgeous locations I’ve ever shot at. If you are in Colorado and have never been to Crested Butte, get off your butt and GO! Its is 1,000% worth the drive!!

We laughed so much this morning and got eaten alive by pesky mosquitoes, but it was so worth it cause HOT DAMN these two were pure magic!
