I bonded with Rachel + Manny over their love of margaritas and tacos when they introduced me to Illegal Pete’s, one of their neighborhood faves, during our initial meeting. I instantly loved this couple! We talked about how they met in high school art class and then reconnected a few months later and have been together ever since. I swooned over Manny’s epic proposal where he surprised Rachel with their friends and family after popping the question at the top of Beaver Creek Mountain. We chatted about their engagement session and planned it out for the following weekend.
We met at Lookout Mountain where it looked like a beautiful day until we got out of our cars and were met with an icy cold wind. I’m not even going to pretend like it wasn’t a miserably cold kind of day. But, Rachel and Manny were troopers and toughed it out for a little bit before we moved down into Clear Creek History Park in Golden where we weren’t fighting the wind as much. They even brought along their adorable German Shephard Puppy, Zuma! Who, by the way, totally rocked!
Here are my favorites from their Lookout Mountain and Golden, Colorado engagement session!
I loved spending my Saturday afternoon with Rachel, Manny, and Zuma and I can’t wait for their 2018 Summer wedding in Vail!
