Colorado Springs Engagement Photos

Ari and Sam braved Colorado’s chilly winter for these snowy photos. Their Colorado Springs engagement photos turned out so lovely!

The trail up to this overlook is almost entirely shaded, meaning that even though it snowed over a week before our shoot, the ground was still completely covered in a thick layer of ice and snow. Safety is always the most important aspect of any photoshoot, so wearing the correct footwear is necessary. Shoes that aren’t waterproof will allow your feet to become chilled. Freezing feet are not only uncomfortable but can also be dangerous. Frostbite and hypothermia can happen at higher temperatures than one might think, and when it’s so simple to protect yourself from the elements, safety is a no-brainer.

To keep our feet safe and dry, we all wore warm boots for the hike up. I also wore microspikes–a total game-changer for snowy hiking. I prefer the Kahtoola microspikes (thank you Sam for recommending these to me!), which you can find here. These spikes are more pricey than other brands but are worth the cost because of the safety and security they provide.

If you don’t like the look of hiking and/or snow boots, it’s easy to change out of them once your session begins. Ari changed from her hiking boots to these cute brown booties. She was able to keep her feet warm and dry for the hike there and back. This allowed her to have a more enjoyable photoshoot because she wasn’t freezing cold!

I loved this Colorado Springs hiking engagement session. This hike is a 20-minute easy-moderate uphill walk to a gorgeous view. It is only about 45 minutes from downtown Denver.

CI hope you enjoyed these beautiful Colorado Springs Engagement photos.
