The hustle and bustle of the holidays are upon us, and I could not be happier. Silver and gold tinsel, rosy cheeks and noses, and winter white weddings everywhere – it most definitely is the most wonderful time of the year. I won’t keep you much longer before sending you off into what I’m sure are glitter-filled weekends. Just long enough to share this gorgeous Colorado engagement session from Jason+Gina Wedding Photographers. It’s fall, it’s fabulous, and it’s one last wink from all of us at SMP for the week. Have a wonderful weekend my loves! xoxo
