What a fun engagement shoot concept Colorado couple Rachael and John came up with to fit their lifestyle – from a little black dress to flannels and fields of wildflowers, this adventurous photo shoot with Chowen Photography had a little bit of everything!
From Rachael: My inspiration for the shoot was a glamorous “little black dress” concept. We went with the Bitter Bar in Boulder as it is a favorite of ours and has that speakeasy type vibe. For the rest of the shoot we went to Chautauqa where my husband proposed. We took our dog Harlow Quinn with us and used the base of the mountain for a natural setting. Heidi and Daniel were beyond amazing and so wonderful to spend the day with. We love them!
From Heidi Chowen, of Chowen Photography: Every so often we get a request to have a “city mouse, country mouse” session with a couple. This works great when the two are fully on board with creating the juxtaposition needed to pull it off. John and Rachael literally transformed themselves when allowing us to shoot their engagement session in Boulder, CO. We started calm and cool with sophistication, speak-easy drinks, and some steamy alley-way moments. We ended with a much more casual feel with nature trails, a sunset atop Chautauqua Mountain, and a family made complete by their faithful dog.
John and Rachael did an amazing job of really stepping outside of “wedding day” mode and just letting themselves relax for us. Their attitude made for some great images and a day they can always look back on with fondness.
So lovely. Than you Rachael and John! We’re also featuring a gorgeous Colorado wedding from Chowen Photography on Photobug today! Be sure to check it out for more mountain wedding inspiration from this talented team!
