Alex and Josh's Grand Mesa Engagement

I can't say enough about how fun these two are. The positivity flows from Josh and Alex, which shows in these photos. This was one heck of an adventure engagement session!

We talked about a fun day out on the Mesa and this combined it all. They found a canoe from a friend, but thankfully it was too massive to transport and they were able to rent one from Grand Mesa Lodge next to Island Lake. As I was getting setup on the dock, the cold wind hit me and I wondered how long we could stay out on the lake. Thankfully, the weather turned and warmth set in. 

I'd seen Island Lake from afar, but to have it to ourselves was truly special. Shooting from a kayak was amazing. The current even took me to some great angles.

Did I mention Josh was prepared? Snacks and whiskey tea. Whaaat? As we shot around the aspen groves, he broke the tea out and it warmed our spirits for the last shots. 

I can't wait for their wedding on Cinco de Mayo at Maison La Belle Vie and Amy's Courtyard next year!
