Colorado Lake Photo Shoot

Today's post is all about Crystal + Javier: Styled Couple Shoot at Carter Lake, Colorado with images courtesy of Sarah Porter Photography. Winter lasts so long that when summer is here, it's wise to take advantage of the mountain lakes and streams for recreation and relaxation whenever possible. Even better if you can time it right to plan a photo session at one of the many bodies of water available in the Rocky Mountains. Take a guided tour with a fly fisherman, put on some waders and have a shoot that way. Or, hop on your mountain bikes for an engagement shoot. Sky's the limit and we're here to help.

Engagement, Elopements and Destination Weddings

Please contact us to learn more about setting up a custom wedding package with the photographer found in this blog, or others on this site. We accept submissions of high altitude nuptials and Colorado mountain love, but we love showing other fun areas that are inspiring and creative. We've helped couples plan snowy engagement shoots, dog sledding elopements and destination weddings for smaller groups. If you think you need a full-service to work out some ongoing details, we can recommend the best in the business. Otherwise, we find that a lot of our clients don't need that kind of assistance. We can help you a little, or a lot, and we should set up an initial call to discuss the best way for us to help you. Thanks for stopping by our blog!

There is something incredibly freeing about creating photographs for yourself. There is a certain amount of pressure that is lifted from your shoulders when you know that you don’t have to perform on a certain level. However, there is a different kind of self-imposed pressure to hustle a little harder and break from what is comfortable. Crystal and Javier stepped in the last minute when my original couple had to change their plans unexpectedly. They were an incredibly easy couple to photograph and we had a superb afternoon. These two are comfortable around each other: there is nothing stiff or forced about their relationship. Love and grace is evident in Crystal and Javier’s lives. This shoot ended up having special meaning for them, it commemorated there one year anniversary of being together as a couple.

[Venue + Activities] The Day Lodge and the Frisco Adventure Park in Summit County, Colorado

You won't find this new venue on any other blog, because it's so new, that most folks don't even know about it.  Well, not anymore.  We're sharing the news about other possible venues and activity options around the Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Dillon, Frisco, Keystone and Silverthorne area.  

No longer the town you drive through to get to Breck, the Town of Frisco has made major investments to their offerings including massive upgrades to the marina (read about our pontoon parade here), including a restaurant.  There's even a downhill bike park and  a multi-use facility simply called the Day Lodge.

During the winter the adventure park becomes basecamp for the nordic center and tubing hill.  The video in this blog is with the blessing of mountain man, Mike Hagadorn.  Thanks for sharing this awesome video of the bike park!  

 

This is where you come in.  If you're  a downhill bike fiend and / or a skateboarder, well then, you're in luck.  There's both a skate park and a Frisco's latest addition, the bike park.  

The Day Lodge is a beautiful facility; however we strongly encourage you to visit the site prior to making a private use reservation as the facility was not designed for custom use and may or may not meet your individual needs.
