A & E's rather awesome engagement session

[ engagement portraits in Colorado Springs ]

Well this was a fun one! Alex proposed to Emily in the Garden of the Gods, so naturally we took some nice portraits there and they're wonderful, but the ones that came AFTER the Garden of the Gods were the icing on the cake! Alex is an Air Force pilot, and they both wanted aircraft to feature significantly in their engagement portraits. Off we went to the Peterson Air and Space Museum (on Pete Field), where there are quite a few really cool vintage planes and jets. The sun was just going down and it was the most dramatic lighting I could have hoped for. These guys seriously rocked it! I think this is my favorite engagement session ever! :o)

The funny story behind this photo: I asked Emily and Alex to smooch for the camera. There were lots of tourists around watching, including a family with little kids. As Alex and Emily kissed, one of the children said loudly, "Ewwwwww! They're kissing!" It was hilarious!

I think this one's my favorite from the whole session.

Top Gun!

Pretty cool, huh?
