Medicine Bow Engagement | Monica and Tom | Mirror Lake Engagement

intimate sunset engagement photoMonica and Tom live in Denver, but Tom has deep roots in Wyoming.  So, when they suggested that they wanted a Medicine Bow Engagement session, I had a feeling that the day would be special for them.

But I had no idea just how amazing it would be.

The drive from Denver up to Laramie in summer is mostly open farmland, but when  you turn towards the mountains, and start the climb in elevation, it becomes a whole other world.  Tall evergreens tower over the curvy road and wildflowers pair with rocks along the roadside. Then you round a bend towards Mirror Lake and you happen upon a fresh glacial lake that sparkles. Mostly I was struck by how lush the atmosphere felt, which is something that you don’t find in Colorado very often.

Then Monica and Tom arrived and together we set off to explore Mirror Lake. We wandered around the rocks and moss along the water’s edge, chatting and getting to know each other along the way. We took advantage of sweeping views and hillsides of wildflowers.  It seemed like every spot we explored held something unique and beautiful that just fueled our souls.  We played in the last peak of sunshine at the lake, then hopped in the car to drive higher in elevation for sunset.

Together we found a spot with amazing views of the Snowy Range and took advantage of the solitude for some intimate portraits. And wait until you see the light we got as the sun finally settled below the peaks at sunset.

One very important thing I learned during this session is just how in love Monica is with Tom, and Tom is with Monica.  They share a decade long history that has layers upon layers of devotion, care, respect, and deep love.  And the best part? They let every one of these layers peek through in their session.
