Denver Engagement Photographer

Our approach to modern romance

As a Denver engagement photographer, these fun couple sessions are like the icing on the wedding photography cake. That’s why we’ve made engagement sessions a complimentary part of every single wedding package we offer. Our engagement photography is romantic, luminous, and fun. We find that the warmth of the sun combined with candid moments and a bit of silliness weave together the most beautiful engagement sessions – there’s almost nothing better than capturing a genuine laugh amongst lush trees or an impromptu dance in downtown Denver. An engagement session is the perfect way to be sure that those magical few months of “fiancé” are documented for a lifetime… and that you look your very best while doing it!

Why have an engagement session?

Being engaged is one of the most enjoyable times of your life. The excitement for the upcoming wedding, the emotion at the memory of your proposal, the look of genuine happiness in a stranger’s eyes when you tell them you’re engaged. Soak it up… especially the complimentary champagne toasts at your favorite restaurants!

FOR YOU

Like we said, there is no feeling quite like that of being engaged. Images of wedding dresses and first kisses dance like sugarplums in your heads. Not only do we get to capture the fleeting moment of fiancé and fiancée in immortalized imagery, but we also get to capture who you are as a couple. It is also short stint of time where you get to enjoy each other’s company just because we want you to –that’s when we’ll get the best pictures.

FOR US

By the time we step across your dressing room threshold on your wedding day, you need to feel like we’re old friends – and we need to know your photography preferences. In having an engagement shoot, we get to bond before the big day. It’s so much fun to stroll through your preferred location and get to know each other; and it’s useful too. Once we send you your engagement shots, we can also deepen our understanding of your photography preferences. Come wedding day, it’s all worth it.

Planning

Pinterest, Pinterest, Pinterest! These digital mood boards have become our engagement session best friends. We love to plan an engagement session that tells the story of who you are as a couple. By looking through your inspiration photos, we can help you select a location and be sure to photograph in a way that meets all of your expectations. There are often subtle trends we can spot in a bride’s (or groom’s) Pinterest board and we can always apply these stylistic preferences to your engagement photos. One reason we love engagement photography so much is that we get to plan everything: we can select the perfect location, plan for the perfect lighting, capture experiences and settings that define you as a couple, etc., etc., etc. There is no end to the creativity or photojournalism we can involve! Whether you want a chic downtown shoot, a whimsical woodsy shoot, or a lifestyle shoot at your favorite bar, we have you covered. And obviously, we love doing it.

Engagement Session Tips

Make an “engagement photos” Pinterest board and share it with us.

Pay close attention to the colors the couples are wearing in your inspiration shots and select attire in the same color scheme.

Consider planning an engagement session around something you love to do as a couple; picnic in the park, reading in a coffee shop, having a beer at your favorite pub, the options are endless!

Consider two session locations (we often start at one spot, then move to another for two separate looks… especially if bride and groom have different ideas).

Wear something that makes you feel gorgeous and consider bringing a change of clothing for two looks.

You can always include your furry family members or styled props!

Come ready to have some fun! The more fun you have, the better your photos will be.

Remember, engagement sessions are complimentary with every wedding package we offer. So let’s make some art together!
