Annie + Peter: A Sunrise Engagement Session

Photos + Story by Emily Elizabeth Photography

I’ve never been a big fan of a sunrise engagement session. By nature, I am the type of person who goes to bed at 2:00 or 3:00 a.m., not waking up then and leaving my house for a photo shoot. Annie and Peter wanted to do a sunrise session while out here in Colorado as a way to fulfill their sense of adventure. Coming all the way from California, these two just love to explore national parks and get lost in nature together. They brought along their two closest friends to help document this engagement adventure, just as Annie and Peter had done when their friends went to Yosemite for their engagement pictures. The friends tagged along and stood by to get some natural laughs and surreal iPhone videos of these two standing in front of the sunrise.

We all began our journey by venturing from the Bear Lake parking lot with headlamps in the dark, climbing up some rocks to capture the sunrise, and continuing down the path to Dream Lake to catch the rising sun’s beautiful orange hues hitting the mountain wall behind the lake.
