Gabriella + Nick | Engaged

Where a California sweetheart fell in love with a handsome Colorado man.

Gabriella is from Bakersfield, California and came to Colorado for college where she met Nick at the “Soccer House” through mutual friends and started dating later in 2010.

Six years later… after her mad cooking skills, beautiful smile and her love for the Broncos…Nick proposed!! Nick proposed during the Thanksgiving holiday in 2016 while they took their dogs for a walk around the neighborhood pond. He turned around and got down on one knee and popped the question. Gabby said it couldn’t have been more special and intimate. She obviously said YES! because she couldn’t live without his sense of humor or his insanely creative handy-man skills.

Gabriella and Nick will wed May 2018 in Vail, Colorado. After knowing this sweet couple for quite some time now, I cannot wait to photograph their wedding and am so honored they chose me!

Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session!

And of course, their insanely cute pups made it there as well. Marley, a 5 pound Yorkie, who is BOSS over Rascal, an 80 pound red golden retriever.
