There’s always something in the air this time of the year. Even after experiencing a mostly mild winter in our small metropolis, when we welcomed Spring last month, I’m fairly certain we all did some sort of personal salutation to the sun as we shed our heavier coats and prepared to embrace the forthcoming warmer and longer Colorado days. Or maybe that was just me; I can be a little goofy that way.
With this fine weather, and the promise of a world almost set to bloom, comes prime engagement photo season, and we have a rather Colorado-themed session to share with you today. Amanda and Michael came to us with the idea of starting off their engagement session at their favorite, neighborhood brewery (yes, please); get a few urban/city photos on South Broadway in Denver (which is one of our favorite stretches in the city); and then pop over to Washington Park to take a handful of photos with their sweet dog and enjoy some of the natural marvels Colorado so generously offers us. A couple of pints, an adorable dog, and two people ready to adventure, if that’s not a genius plan, I don’t know what is. We always love to see the creativity a couple brings to an engagement session that really speaks to their personal joys and tastes, and after hearing their suggestions, Dan and I knew these two were bound to be kindred spirits.
Thanks for spending a Sunday afternoon with us, Amanda and Michael! You were quick to laugh, generous with your time and excitement, and a delight to photograph. We are so looking forward to photographing your wedding this fall!
Now, if you’ll permit me, here is a brief note to other couples planning their own engagement photos: One size absolutely does not fit all. Make your engagement session about what you and your beloved love to do together, and/or stage the photos wherever you love to spend time together, and those preferences will make the session even more special, memorable and striking. I have much more to say on this, so stay tuned for a future blog post. High fives to all!
