What do you do when a storm rolls in out of nowhere and you’re about to start an engagement session? You look for shelter and prepare yourself for some EPIC shots.
Shooting at Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins is by far one of my favorite local spots. But after shooting there so often, I forget how vast the possibilities are on this huge lake. So Jeremy and I decided to arrive early for our engagement session to scout out some new territory. And in this case, find shelter from those intense gusts of wind.
WOWZA! The wind was absolutely insane. But after our couple traveled all the way from Denver for our session, we knew we just had to make it work.
So when Shahnoza and Dmitriy rolled up, their smiles welcomed us right in. Full of joy and excitement for our adventure, we made our way to some new spots with hopes that we might hide a bit from the craziness. Fortunately, these two love to snuggle, so finding ways to block the wind was no problem. And to be honest, it definitely added to the romance.
Similar to Jeremy and I, Shahnoza and Dmitriy met at church. So let this be a little tip for all you single folks out there… you can find your perfect match anywhere. But connecting with someone who values what you value is HUGE. So if your faith is important, maybe try getting plugged in there. You never know who God might bring into your life when you least expect it. Or Tinder. You can also try Tinder. I honestly can’t knock tinder after all our BG Couples who’ve found love online! But that, a story for another day friends!
So after these two met at church and 7 months of dating, Dmitriy knew that Shahnoza was the one. So during a picnic on the lake, one of their favorite things to do together, he asked her to be his wife!
If you’re new to the BG Blog, one of my favorite things to ask our couples, is their favorite thing about their other half. It really helps give us so much insight into who they are as a couple. And how we can help celebrate those things they see in one another through our story telling. Here’s what they both said:
“The things I love most about him is his beautiful blue eyes, his genuine laughter and the way I know that he deeply loves me when he randomly grabs and picks me up.” – Shahnoza
“The things I love most about her is her smile and the way she pours her heart out to me every time she writes me little love notes and letters.” – Dmitriy
Get ready to celebrate this beautiful couples engagement with these amazing photos from our time at Horsetooth Reservoir. We can’t wait to celebrate with you next month at The Mill in Windsor, when you become husband and wife!
But before we reveal those photos… we’ve got another BIG surprise…

It’s been our goal for a while to offer our couples the option of photography and film services and we can finally announce… IT’S TIME! And films are exclusive to the wedding day.
