Alex + Cameron

Surprise Proposal at Lily Lake, Colorado

Cameron and Alex were first contacted by Perry & Kathryn  to model for a styled shoot in the mountains. And here’s the beautiful story, related by the two photographers of Our Love Is Loud, of what happened instead.

We actually got connected with Cameron and Alex through friends and had asked them if they would model for us for a styled shoot in the mountains. Well, Cameron (the groom) called us immediately with an idea of his own, that made it even better. “How about we actually turn this shoot into a surprise proposal shoot for Alex”, he said. He wanted to propose soon. He knew he wanted to do it in a gorgeous mountain location, with Alex all dolled up feeling pretty, and he knew he would love killer photos of the whole thing. We loved the idea!

Cameron and Alex look like an amazing couple, and those pictures of this surprise proposal almost brought tears to my eyes. Kathryn and Perry are from Colorado, but you won’t find this information on their website because they just love to travel!

From the photographers.

Cameron planned every detail to perfection. Found the perfect spot, coordinated with us through a secret strain of emails, even hand carved the beautiful wooden arrowhead box that would hold the ring, his grandmother’s ring. Alex didn’t see it coming. Not at all. She was completely taken aback! We simply snapped away, capturing all the emotion, holding back our own tears. It was one of the most emotional, truly touching engagement sessions we have ever done.

Geraldine + Cyrille

Rock Climbing Engagement Session

I love when couples decide to go for a love session that says something about them. It makes a photography story that’s beautiful but also real, that means something to them, and that without any doubt, they’ll always look back after with joy. Photography by G&D Photography (who you can also meet here on the blog) out of France.



Here you can read how this rock climbing engagement session perfectly fits the story of these two:

More than 10 years ago, our glances first crossed on this block site where some rock-climbers had gathered for a climbing contest.
That’s why this place became part of OUR story… A few years later, we met again and haven’t been apart since then!
We spent 8 years living together, sharing our passion for rock-climbing, studying together at University for 5 years, until Geraldine passed her final exam… We then decided it was time to get married!
On a Wednesday afternoon of March, after a beauty makeover by Diane (the gifted photographer), the four of us went to our favourite place. The shooting session took place in an excited but natural atmosphere, thanks to an amazing light, but also because we were at ease in that place, looking forward to getting married!
Diane and Guy made us feel comfortable and confident, as if we had been knowing them for years ! The shooting ended at dusk, we were a bit cold and shivering but thrilled to have shared such a wonderful moment.

The word of the photographers.

We are always ready for shooting sessions out of the ordinary. When Geraldine and Cyrille asked us if a climbing session might interest us, we of course immediately embraced the idea. 
And we were not disappointed! We did not see the time elapsing, ideas rushed into our heads, the Spring light was insane, our “bride and groom to be” were gorgeous and their love clearly genuine. No “cliffhanger” here (sorry), we all know how this story will end!

A Spanish White and Red Winter Styled Shoot in the Forest

Paula contacted me with this winter styled shoot, and I instantaneously fell in love. It made me also realize I hadn’t posted anything winter related yet, so my decision was quick! This styled shoot took place in the mountains in the region of Basque Country in Spain. I love the contrast between the intense red in this dark green forest, the beautiful details of the tables and how beautiful Pía & Iván look together! Photography by Paula G. Furió, design and setting by Popelin Happy Weddings.

The word of the photographer.

It was a styled shoot in Basque Country, with Pia and Ivan. They are a cute, young and deeply in love couple. All the concept, locations, styling and deco was in Maialen’s hands. She’s the owner of Popelin Happy Weddings. We were all day working on the top of a mountain in Izarraitz, so it was a hard logistic work. But we are so proud with the result!
