I had the pleasure of capturing the magic and excitement of Celina & Aaron’s engagement during a recent outdoor portrait session with this adorable couple in South Boulder. Celina said yes to Aaron in front of the Cinderella castle during a trip to Disneyworld in Florida earlier this year.
Growing up as kids Celina went often to Disneyland with her family. It was something that was a big part of their lives. They all found a lot of joy and magic on their trips there. Later on when she met Aaron, Celina was able to take him for the first time to Disneyland and it became a big part of the two of their lives as well.
So it was fitting that Aaron decided to propose there. The whole family was in on it. Celina told me she got irritated with her family as they told her they were going to crash her vacation and join her and Aaron in Florida. She didn’t understand why everyone wanted to come with them, but that became clear after Aaron popped the question.
We walked through the South Mesa trail in Boulder surrounded by the beauty of the Flatirons as we took photos. They brought along their dog Kylo Ren who was a perfect little gentleman. Celina’s sister was kind enough to join us and help with pup sitting when he wasn’t in portraits. Celina tried to tell me Aaron was the messiest between the two of them, but she was later overruled by her sister and Aaron. We joked around as we walked and got to know each other better.
The possibility of thunderstorms was in the forecast for this day. So we pushed back the shoot just a bit to give the storm time to blow through and it worked. Colorado weather is so sporadic. We were blessed with clouds and sun in the late afternoon which was perfect. The late afternoon light wrapped softly around Celina and Aaron making for some beautiful images.
Celina and Aaron, I’m so excited for you guys!! It was a pleasure to spend the little time we did together. You two are adorable together. It was fun to hear about your favorite foods, get to know you a little more, and capture the love between you two! Thanks for entrusting me to capture this moment in your lives.
