In addition to “amazing Colorado weddings” and “beautiful couples in the mountains,” I received some requests that surprised me: “How do you do it all!?” “Help this girl with all the wedding stress” and “Balance: working, life, wedding planning, and pandemic.” While I’m no life coach, I can share a handful of things that have helped me manage overwhelming feelings. Here are 5 ways that I make that anxiety ball in my chest melt into the feeling of accomplishment.

Winter Breckenridge Engagement | Jane & Jeff

Winter Breckenridge Engagement | Jane & Jeff Snowy mountain engagement shoot in Breckenridge, Colorado with Hillary Shedd Photography, Colorado Wedding Photographer.

Jane & Jeff are the dream Colorado couple. They met while being skiing and snowboarding instructors in Winter Park. During their first interaction, Jeff worked up the courage to talk to Jane by their staff lockers. Jane, however, brushed right by him without saying anything! Was he so nervous that he only said hello in his head? Maybe, because that night Jane and her friends visited the brewery Jeff worked at in the evenings in hopes to see him. After their first conversation, they were hooked!

“One conversation and I was hooked on who he was!”

Marcus has that effect. His words are intentional and heartwarming, while his smile is infectious. Candace is the same way, and spending an afternoon with them in Colorado Springs felt like going on a hike with old friends. Marcus has three children from a previous marriage, and Candace has wholeheartedly welcomed them into her heart. I loved hearing about their blended family and seeing their honest smiles throughout their engagement shoot.
