Rustic Farm Engagement, Mead | Colorado Wedding Photographers | Larissa and Aaron
Larissa had a vision for an engagement session photo shoot with her fiance Aaron. She wanted a rustic farm setting with just the right amount of personality. Luckily, Eric and I had photographed a wedding a couple years back and knew just the place for their rustic farm engagement session in the plains town of Mead, Colorado.
Perfect Rustic Farm Engagement Location
Stillroven Farm, a private bird hunting preserve, immediately came to mind. The farm is set just the right distance from the majestic backdrop of Mount Meeker and Longs Peak. The farm’s barns and various outbuildings had just the right amount of character to fit Larissa’s vision for the shoot.
The Bearded Groom
Aaron only shaves when he has to. The U.S. Navy veteran said he had to shave twice a day at times to keep up with Navy regulations. But now that he’s a civilian again, he proudly sports his red beard – and with that beard like that, why wouldn’t you? Larissa surely doesn’t mind.
Yoda Makes an Appearance
Larissa and Aaron’s wedding would take place on May the 4th so it’s only fitting as huge Star Wars fans that the space saga should figure into their engagement shoot. They found a rather large version of the little Jedi Master that fit perfectly into their photos and eventually their save the date cards. There was no try with this couple only do.
The Active Couple
Larissa and Aaron are an active couple. Both love Crossfit and riding bikes around their hometown of Longmont, Colorado. They wanted their engagement photos to reflect their outdoor lifestyle and their carefree attitude toward life. This couple knows how to have fun!
We love couples that think outside the box. If you have a book or movie-inspired wedding coming up, we would love to hear about it.
