Beautiful Colorado Engagement Photos in Lovely Lyons

Outdoor Engagement Photography in Lyons, Colorado

What can I say about these Colorado engagement photos?

I headed to Lyons to meet up with Deb and Andrew, a June wedding couple who is getting married at Lone Hawk Farm. We zipped up the South St. Vrain Canyon in their new, but used, Toyota Sienna minivan to my favorite photo spot. Once there, I got to play with light and camera gear (both digital and film, of course) and posing these two amazing people. They said they aren’t comfortable in front of the camera, but they most definitely fooled me. They played along with my directions, did their own thing too, and then they…

…let me pretend I was directing a Toyota commercial. That’s right, for the second part of their engagement session, we headed to Hall Ranch. I took photos of them driving around in their minivan that they will convert to a camping vehicle. (You have no idea how much I love this.) I don’t typically take photos with cars (except for these Colorado engagement photos from a few years ago) and I like the results, although they do make me giggle. Rock that Toyota Sienna minivan!!!

So please go ahead and check out these Colorado engagement photos. Let me know what you think in the comments.

hey there!


I've been photographing families professionally since 2006. I am a wife, mama to 2 boys, companion to 2 cats who are named after members of the royal British family, a former preschool teacher. I love running, hiking 14ers, sparkly clothes, the band Phish, river float trips, St. John USVI, farm CSAs, and Colorado blue skies.
