Silverton Colorado Engagement Session

Stella and James moved to Durango, Colorado (where I live) last year! And as soon as they moved, they got a puppy named Aspen. I love it when couples bring their dogs for photos! I have a whole blog post with tips on how to bring your dog for your wedding day too.

For their session, we went to one of my favorite areas outside of Silverton for sunset. I absolutely love coming up here in the summer/fall to paint, and of course, find new amazing locations for my couples. This location is in my location guide for couples eloping in 2025, and also a great spot for wedding portraits or an engagement session. Perks of working with a local! 🙂

It was a beautiful summer evening and we had the whole area to ourselves. While Aspen definitely stole the show with zoomies and being adorable in front of the camera, Stella and James were so sweet on each other. I’m so glad I was able to document this special moment for them and also get photos that celebrate their move to the San Juans!
