We loved this short and sweet Telluride engagement session with Shyann and Yurik. It is not very often that as photographers we get to spend the day before a wedding with our couples. With Shyann and Yurik though we were there for everything from downhill mountain biking the morning before the wedding to the rehearsal dinner that night. Since this was our first time photographing these two we took the opportunity to take them out 15 minutes before sunset after their rehearsal dinner and shoot what can only be described as the worlds shortest and most belated engagement session. It turned out amazing, the light was perfect, and the location was gorgeous (you wouldn’t know by looking but we were behind a ski lodge next to a parking lot). Everything went so well in fact that Shyann and Yurik agreed to ride the gondola with us to the top of the mountain again that night and make some photo magic with sparklers on the eve of their wedding. Opportunities like these are only possible when we shoot destination weddings, and for Shyann and Yurik it meant they had much more than just wedding photos.
