Summertime Fun Engagement Photos

Two super fun summer engagement sessions to share with you guys today! The first is from Aria Photography and is of Ginger + Jon. Ginger is a huge fan of Green Wedding Shoes, and has been using GWS to help plan her “vintage” theme wedding. Thanks Ginger! I love the cute lemonade stand they stumbled upon…

It looked like a perfect fun summer day! Thanks Aria! You can see more from their fun session on Aria’s Blog. Aria Photography is located in American Fork, UT and available to travel worldwide.

And next we have the fun session from Stone Crandall – and it has special meaning to him – it’s of his sister Kelsey! Kelsey is also a GWS reader and even introduced her brother to GWS, so thanks for introducing us – and congrats to Kelsey + Buck on their fun photos :) A bit into the shoot from Stone:

Kelsey and Buck are getting married July 24, 2010 up in Crested Butte,CO at the Lazy F Bar Ranch. The two of them are some of the most kind, sincere, and flat-out funny people I have ever known so when it came to their engagement shoot we wanted to try something a bit different and completely fun that really showcased their amazing personalities (also Kelsey still insisted on a few “pretty”photographs).

The location we shot at is a pool just 10 minutes down the road from Boulder and has quite a rich history. The pool opened on July 4, 1905 and was originally called the “Coney Island of the West.” When it opened in 1905 it was the largest swimming pool in the country. Even Dwight and Mamie Eisenhower honeymooned in the cabin just east of the pool and hotel. The resort’s popularity grew during the 1910’s and 1920’s, and the hotel guest list read like a “Who’s Who in America.” Guests included heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey, actor Douglas Fairbanks, actress Mary Pickford and W.C. Fields.
