Every year I dedicate money for education. We are mostly self taught photographers so continuing education is all the more important. I try to attend the Fearless Photographers convention every year and was excited to get to go to Phoenix for this year! Since I was just a hop skip and a jump away from my cousins in Colorado Springs, I headed there for a couple of days before going back to Minnesota. I tried to keep my camera down for most of the trip so we could just hang out, but the views were AMAZING and I couldn’t help myself! First we went to Garden of the Gods…
I just love my 85mm 1.2!
I adore this image by Steph Guidera.
Here is a really awesome story. As we were scrambling on the rocks, we started to hear music, and low and behold, a proposal was happening! I snuck a few images, and then after the couple had calmed down a bit and were getting ready to leave I approached them and offered to do a couple portraits. This one was a candid shot right after the proposal. It was so cool to see!
The next day, we drove to Rocky Mountain National Park. And I will definitely be bringing the family back here! It was simply stunning.
I didn’t have a zoom lens, so I got really close to this guy!
Look at the beauitful nymph we found in the meadow =)
I’m so grateful to John and his parents for making it possible for me to take some time to refresh!
