Romantic Horsetooth Reservoir Boating Engagement
September 5, 2020
Jenny + Cooper
We are loving this fun, unique idea for an engagement session! Bridget Burnett Photography captured Jenny + Cooper’s boating engagement photos at Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Cooper and I were introduced in July of 2016 by a mutual friend. We kissed that night at a bar after I lost a bet. In December of 2019, he asked me to be his forever. For the past two years, we’ve dated primarily long-distance as he attended veterinary school 3,000 miles away. Dating long-distance has taught us two paramount lessons: 1. We are meant for each other 2. Even ordinary moments together are a gift. Cooper and his ‘surrogate grandfather’, Randy, planned his proposal for a year; we went dogsledding and he gave me a ring created with Randy’s late wife’s diamond. Randy recently passed away; we’re grateful for the love and time we’ve had with him and for the love we’re continually surrounded with by family and friends. Cooper’s mom described Randy’s relationship with his wife, Marcia, as “legendary”; we strive for a love of that caliber.
