Pagosa Springs Lovebirds

January 5, 2016

These Pagosa Springs Engagement Photos were beautiful! Pagosa Springs is close to Durango and the drive through the mountains is just awe inspiring. There is tons of live music at all the restaurants and coffee shops. My boyfriend was happy to come along (even with my horrible driving) and as he put it, “Pagosa Springs is the friendliest city in America.” The hot springs are probably the biggest draw to this city. And I’m such a sucker for a good hot spring. Especially while it’s snowing! Also, everybody in Pagosa Springs had a pet Yak. Weird.

I’ll be honest. It’s very intimidating photographing a fellow photographer. 🙂 Laetitia is a beautiful photographer in South Florida. Check out her website here. She is from France and is just as cute as a button!

Laetitia met Ryan in high school sixteen years ago. She says, “We fell in love hard. The way you do when you’re 18.” She still has all the letters he wrote her during class. After college they rekindled their romance and eloped. And seven years later, they are still very much in love.

Laetitia and Ryan are a gold mine for photographs. They can’t take a bad photo. And Laetitia’s playfulness shines through in the most endearing way. These two were up for anything—treading through thigh-high snow on a very grey, 16 degree afternoon. I’m so glad to have met these two. Enjoy!

That pop of color is everything.

We actually walked though this deep snow. Next time I’ll bring toe warmers.

This photo reminds me of Frozen. And that’s what we were.
