Ginger and Josh’s wedding day started out as a better ski day, than a wedding day, but as you will see the weather turned out to be beautiful conditions for wedding photography!
We met up with the ladies at The Retro Room Lounge and Salon, and the men at The Hotel Magnolia. Took some shots with the entire wedding party right in front of the magnolia, then off with just Ginger and Josh around Denver. Despite the snowy and cold weather, they were troopers! Big props to Ginger who was not feeling well, yet was in such high spirits.

I was just going through and editing my blog when I noticed this blog post didn’t have any text. We photographed this engagement session in downtown Denver, in Lodo. You could not have asked for a more beautiful day!
Allow me to go off on a tangent here… we do a lot of our “urban” photo shoots in Lodo. It has so many locations to shoot at in a very small radius, making it very productive for the time we spend with our clients. It also has architectural elements that match our style of photography, from rusty metal textures & brick, to not so pretty alleys. We love to utilize these gritty elements to contrast our pretty, good looking clients. Again, check out our website to see more images that display what I’m trying to describe.
Last week I met with clients at City O’ City restaurant in the Capital Hill neighborhood in Denver. As I was walking from my car to the restaurant, I was noticing how many great spots there were to shoot an Engagement session. Well… we put my observations to the test yesterday, when I met Megan and Joey to shoot their Engagement session. We met at City O’ City for a beer, then headed out to shoot in the alleys and streets of the ‘hood. I have a feeling that this won’t be the last time we shoot here. Check out their pics! We had a great time.
As always, comments are not only welcome, but encouraged! Leave them at the bottom of the blog post.
Our Engagement session with Lyndsay and Shawn, and their dog Luna, was the second session of the weekend, and I have to say, it was an awesome one. We had a ton of fun in a short amount of time. They live in (or near???) the Highlands neighborhood of Denver, in a cool old house. Anyone that knows the area can attest that is full of artistic areas to shoot. The area really fits our style of photography. Utilizing textures and colors of bricks, stone, trees, metal and wood buildings, is what we love shooting to contrast the fun, and sometimes dressy look of our shoots.
Lyndsay and Shawn have a great sense of fashion, and knew what they were looking for! For the last half of the shoot they got dressed up, with Shawn wearing dress clothes with a pair of classic wing tip shoes, and Lyndsay, in an over the top, formal gown, with combat boots (again… adding an awesome contrast to the look!). We did the shoot in less than a one block radius of their house! Hopefully you can see how much fun we had:
This weekend was a busy one, with two Denver Engagement sessions, for some of our awesome 2012 Wedding clients. For this session I met Michelle & Jimmy at the Denver Beer Co for a beer and chat about their wedding. If you haven’t checked out the Brewery yet, what are you waiting for? Amazing beer! The plan for the day was to follow the actual path of an elaborate Engagement that Jimmy planned, that included bar hoping across town, and finishing at the Oxford Hotel. Saturday’s session was the first of two sessions that we will be doing to fully cover replication of the Engagement day! Look out for Part Two in the Spring of 2012!
