Monica and Roger’s Engagement Session by Durango CO Photographers

My husband Ken and I are photographers in Durango CO. Couples love to have their engagement sessions and weddings take place in Durango and photographed by Karen Skelly Photography – Durango CO Photographers.

Monica and Roger have been together for 14 years and have two kiddos. It’s about time they got married, right? Their kids are Roger Jr, aged 11 and Karla, aged 8.

They had never had any family portraits of themselves, so we included some family photos with their engagement photos.

Roger Sr. works in construction, and Monica does bookkeeping at City Market South. Roger Jr. likes to play games on the computer, and Karla is a girly girl – she likes pink.

Monica’s mom passed away shortly before this engagement session, so I suggested that she bring a framed photograph of her mom (maybe a wedding photo) to their wedding. She thought that was a great idea.

They were married on 8.24.19 (I know I’m behind in blog posts about my clients:), so I made this Save The Date sign for them. They used several of their engagement photos for their Wedding Invitations.

We were down by the river with lots of big rocks, so what’s better than sitting on the rocks enjoying the river and the surrounding beauty of Durango CO?

There’s this cool tree on the Animas River Trail right by the river that I think is pretty cool. Sometimes I have kids climb into the tree, but this time I just wanted the couple to gaze into each other’s eyes thinking about their upcoming wedding.

There’s also a lovely gazebo in the park and the steps make a perfect spot to have them sit and show off her engagement ring.

Thanks for looking and Long Live Love!
