It started as just a small idea. After meeting Britta and Nick at a friend’s wedding, we quickly booked their wedding and started to talk about engagement session locations. “What do you think about doing the session in Denver,” I asked while talking to Britta and Nick on the phone. Like so many clients, they had not thought about a destination session. We spent the rest of the call talking back and forth about ideas and logistics. By the end of the call, the decision had been made. We would be doing their engagement session in Denver.
Initially, we had planned for an autumn session in Vail, high up in the Rocky Mountains. Unfortunately, time and weather conspired against us. The fall color in the mountains had already come and gone by the day of Britta and Nick’s session. Furthermore, the weather in the mountains called for rain that day. By this time, I had already arrived in Denver for the session, and I was staying with some family. Specifically, my sister-in-law and her husband. Thankfully, family came to my rescue and started to suggest some great locations in the Front Range for the session. After a quick chat with Britta and Nick, a new plan was in place. We would do their engagement session at Roxborough State Park in the Front Range, and then head to Washington Park in downtown Denver. The new plan also came with a bonus – great fall color and very warm temperatures.
The morning of the session, I headed out to Roxborough very early. I wanted to take some extra time for scouting and to capture some scenery. Almost by plan, I was met by a funny, fury fellow at the park entrance. You’ll see him below. Not long after, Britta and Nick arrived. We then headed across the park and into a beautiful valley I had found earlier. Honestly, I cannot adequately describe the scenery. It was breathtaking. Of course, Britta and Nick were wonderful to work with as well. We ended the session at Washington Park, working around the lagoon and geese who were diligently mowing the lawn.
Afterwards, we all sat down at a nearby cafe for a glass of wine and a small bite to eat. At this point it began to hit me – Britta & Nick’s engagement photos were going to be amazing. I’ve included some highlights below. For Britta & Nick, I certainly can’t wait for the wedding. It’s going to be even better than Denver! Thank you so much for the adventure.
