best Breckenridge engagement photosIf I’ve ever met two people who believe in adventure and in living an amazing story, it’s Ross and Griffin. These high school sweethearts met through choir in Lexington, KY, went to college in Nashville, and are now preparing to start their life together in Colorado! The way they love each other, support each other, and laugh together is absolutely beautiful. They are both brilliant entrepreneurs, and Griffin is opening a Pure Barre studio in Colorado Springs, and Ross is the creator and CEO of Picture Booth. Their love for life and the way they pursue their dreams is truly inspiring! When we were discussing their wedding, Griffin mentioned that she had always wanted to have engagement photos done in a ski town, and we told her we would love to make that happen! So we packed up and headed west, never dreaming of the adventures we would find. We started off in Denver, for a few photos in one of their favorite neighborhoods, then headed for the mountains. Chris spotted a lake on the way to Breckenridge that is probably now on my list of top favorite spots ever! Then we continued on for some Breckenridge engagement photos before heading up Boreas Pass to explore (thanks to our friend Chris Scott for the recommendation!!).

Here are a few (ok, a lot ;-)) of our favorites from day one’s adventures!

Funny story. Chris took this picture, and got really excited. Then I had a very under-whelming response, which gave everyone a good laugh, and proceeded to take what I thought would be a better picture. Nope, Chris’s was definitely more awesome!

Shortly before our trip, I read the book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller. Once I started writing down favorite quotes, I practically transcribed the whole book haha. But one of my favorite favorites was “The mountains themselves call us to better stories.” Ross and Griffin, thanks for inviting us to the mountains, going on adventures with us, allowing us to create for you, and for setting an example of living an incredible story! You two are awesome:)

Check back on Thursday, when we’ll share part two of our adventures, which took place in one of the most epic and incredible locations I’ve ever seen with my own eyes! We’d also love to have you join us on Facebook and Instagram (@jencreed and @chriscreed)! Thanks for stopping by, and we hope you’re all having a great week!

    Chris - Absolutely. Stunning. I think maybe you guys just belong out here. Just sayin’.

Hello all!

Chris and I are currently in Colorado for an engagement session, but we wanted to share a few of our favorite images from our portrait session with Hallie last week in Kentucky! Hallie is going to be a senior at TCCHS, and is so sweet. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for her!

It’s really such an honor when people invite us into their homes to document what life looks like for them! We had such an amazing time this week hanging out with the Gordon family, their four kids, and their rescue pup Otis! They are such a sweet family, who value adventure, learning, music, and of course, each other, among many other things! Suzanna clearly so loves being a mom, and taking care of her family (and makes some of the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had!). Jonathan is always right there to cheer everyone on in their various sports and activities, and is also involved with Boy Scouts with the boys (and is just recently home from a canoe trip)! They are together raising truly awesome kids, and we are excited to share a few of our favorite images from the session!

Let me start out this post by saying we are honored to know some of the most incredible, big-hearted, amazing people in the world! The Scobeys are definitely some of those people :)  We are excited to announce that you can now purchase some of our fine art travel work through Art to Aid, an incredible website that was started by our friend Graham Scobey. Art to Aid is an “online marketplace for creative folks who want to make the world a better place,” and was started as a way for creatives to give back. It’s a way to change the world for the better. A portion of every sale goes to support a cause of the artist’s choice, and there are so many beautiful things on the site!

We have chosen to feature a selection of some of our favorite travel photos, because we believe in adventure, and are inspired by exploring new places. We will be donating part of every sale to Fresh Artists, which is an amazing organization we came across in Pennsylvania, which both supports arts education in schools AND encourages kids to create and give back. We believe that we are ALL made to create, and that the arts are so important at all ages, but especially for children. We are so excited for this opportunity to give back, and can’t wait to see all the good created through Art to Aid!
