I cannot wait to share with you Jess & Ian’s Ice Skating Adventure Engagement Session in Aspen Colorado. Aspen holds a special place in Jess & Ian’s hearts, its where they spend a lot of their winters. Ice Skating, skiing, and spending time with their family. When we were planning Jess & Ian’s adventure engagement session we were talking through all the options of the things they love doing together, they decided upon Ice Skating. It’s something they do every time they are in Aspen together with their family.
It was the day after Christmas and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. It was a winter wonderland. The snow was falling beautifully, and the ice rink was in the perfect location with the mountains as the backdrop. We started out with Jess & Ian Ice Skating at the Silver Circle Ice Rink in downtown Aspen. We stopped at CP burger in Aspen next to the rink to grab some adult milkshakes.
After we left there we headed back to Jess’s parent’s condo in Snowmass. Jess is very close to her family so it felt natural that they were involved in this session. Jess made guacamole while Ian made some drinks. They played a few rounds of telestrations, which was a hilarious game. (Basically telephone through drawings.) We ended our night with an amazing dinner cooked by Ray & Shauna. Ray showed us some magic tricks, we laughed a whole lot, and I headed back to my little Air BnB in Basalt.
I feel so grateful for the times we get to spend with couples and their families before the wedding. Building these relationships is what makes photos so much better and effortless. After meeting Jess’s whole family I literally couldn’t wait for their wedding day to spend time with everyone again. Ice Skating Adventure Engagement Session Aspen Colorado
