Josh + Kristin’s Ice Castle Couples Session

When I posted my sneak peek images on Instagram the day after Josh and Kristin’s session, everyone went crazy (click here if you want to see what I’m talking about)!

For Josh + Kristin’s session I made the drive to Salt Lake City to experience Utah’s Ice Castles! Good news for us: Colorado is bringing back the Ice Castles in Cripple Creek for the 2023 – 2024 season!

Dress Appropriately

Being that you are walking thru Ice Castles you can just imagine how cold it is! The temps drop as you are inside each magical creation, so definitely make sure you bundle up.

Just because you need to wear extra layers doesn’t mean that takes away from styling the perfect outfit. Josh and Kristin killed their outfits! They chose a neutral color scheme (y’all know my love for neutrals) that didn’t distract from the blue tones of the Ice Castles and incorporated stylish warm accessories like coats and scarfs!

Opt for a weekday!

Expect a lottttt of tourists. Lucky for you, I only offer weekday sessions! 😉 Weekdays are less busy which is especially crucial for a location like this that is small in space. When visiting the Ice Castles for a photoshoot, please be respectful of / patient with other visitors.

If you like tacos, wine, The Office, Schitt's Creek and/or Modern Family, chances are we are basically BFFs. Like for real, I can't count on both hands how many times I've watched the entire series of The Office & Schitt's Creek from start to finish & I could literally live off of chorizo egg tacos & die a happy ass woman.

Looking for a photographer that's more a friend than a stranger? I'm your girl!
