You may remember Dan and Joanna’s first engagement photo shoot at the gym. As promised, we did a more “traditional” shoot last weekend. It was a lot of fun to explore this nice little park with Dan, Joanna and their dog, Mack. We had to wait out a random rain storm, but the sun came out just in time for us to get some photos in before sundown.

My brother-in-law Dan is an adventurer, whether it be rock climbing, skiing the Alps, hiking 14ers or using Crossfit to stay in shape. I’ve long said that it would take a very special girl to marry Dan, because some people are not meant to be tamed, but instead, need some one to run wild with them. Enter Joanna. A dancer and aerialist by profession, Joanna is always down to try anything.  With their upcoming marriage, Dan is getting a life-long partner in crime and I’m getting a super fun new sister. Basically, it’s a win-win for everyone. When they asked me to do their engagement photos, I thought it would be fun to try something less traditional and that would showcase their passions and unique talents. Be on the lookout for a more traditional shoot a little later, but for now, here are my favorites from our first session.

A huge thanks to Steve and Ashley at BackCountry Crossfit for letting us use their facility and to Coach Jim for staying late to allow us to get this session done. It’s an awesome box with great people- if you’re into Crossfit or want to try it, you should definitely check them out!
