Mike & Jessica Wash Park Engagement
Spring is in full bloom, and Denver’s Washington Park couldn’t be more beautiful. Luckily, our couple – Jessica and Mike – wanted a Wash Park engagement session! Jessica is a Neuro Rehab Therapist who loves to tell a joke or two. Mike is an Electrician and more of the strong silent type. They are the perfect couple. They even have an absolutely adorable pooch to add to their perfect picture. Dexter, a Black Lab- Chow Chow mix was so well behaved we could barely believe it. He sat patiently for the entire shoot… perhaps he was treated to several laps around Wash Park prior to our photography session?
Dexter was even part of this couple’s proposal! On the third anniversary of their first date, Mike took Jessica to see a movie at the very location their first date occurred. When the movie was over, the couple headed back to their car as the sun set behind the mountains. At that very moment (and with the help of Mike’s brother), Jessica began to hear the jazzy stylings of their song. What else could they do but begin to dance in the parking lot? And this is where Dexter comes in – when Jessica glanced over to the car from which the music was playing, she could see his black head poking out of a window and a white bow attached to a brand new collar. And that is when Mike made his move, dropping to one knee and asking one of the most important questions of his life. It’s no mystery that Jessica said “yes” and now they are planning a vintage wedding for early June.
It goes without saying that Wash Park was a gorgeous setting for this romantic couple, but they wanted just a bit more visual variety, so we headed downtown for an urban set of pictures. As we roamed the streets of downtown Denver, we happened upon a Denver tradition; The Denver Cruiser Ride. This occurs everyWednesday during the summer months. Jessica and Mike thought this would be the perfect photo op… and we couldn’t agree more. The cyclists blurred past as the couple shared a romantic kiss. I guess time really does stand still when you’re in love!
