As weddings often dictate the timeline of all the things, Kelly + Eric met up with me for an early round 1 of quick engagement photos for Save the Date’s. With an early bout of Winter that fell within hours of our session, we met up at this perfect little winter park outside of Littleton, Colorado. Fluffy snow fell perfectly, dusting the pines and leaving a winter scene so perfect for snowy winter engagement photos. Kelly, Eric, and their sweet little Finley were complete troopers through the chill and the snow.
These three are the most adorable little family, and even with the snowy weather and a last minute change of plans, I had a blast with Kelly + Eric and sweet Finny!! If these two can make a last minute shoot in a wintery park look this great, I am even more excited for our mountain shoot this spring! Scroll down for Kelly + Eric’s adorable story and planning tips!!

4 and a half years!!
How did he pop the question?
At sunset, in Maui!

Tell us about the best date you’ve ever been on together:
A few years ago we took a spontaneous one day trip to Minneapolis to go to a Timberwolves game (and they won!). The night we started dating we had went to a Timberwolves/Nuggets game, so we try to make a Timberwolves game every year.
What are you most excited for on your wedding day?
Having all our favorite people together, putting a ring on his finger, and to see what Finley (our daughter) is going to look like!
Any advice for brides currently planning their wedding out there?
The advice I’ve gotten that I’m trying to follow myself is to focus on the reason for the planning and not on the details, if we end up married at the end of that day – it went perfect!
