A Snowy Denver Engagement Session


OK this may come as a shock to the TV meteorologists but it snows in Colorado every Winter. So when snow fell on the morning of Kathryn and David’s engagement shoot, we didn’t even think of postponing. We just changed the location to an inside/outside venue.

I knew the perfect spot! Originally we were heading to Red Rocks but we thought The Denver Center for the Performing Arts has great architecture with amazing lines and a roof that would provide partial cover from the snow. We met David and Kathryn around the corner at a coffee shop and headed out into the elements.

These two are clearly in love and not afraid to show it. Chris and I had a great time shooting as David and Kathryn twirled, kissed and performed for the camera. At times it was like they had forgotten that we were even there. Perfect! We love to approach any shoot as observer rather than director.

The falling snow added an ethereal quality to the photos and only made the photos and the architecture of the DCPA look more dramatic. Our fingers got a little cold, but so what, we live in Colorado. It snows here, remember?

If you are engaged and looking for your wedding photographer, give us a call. We offer a free engagement session when you book with us. This gives us both a chance to get to know each other before the craziness of the wedding day.

Congrats again David and Kathryn! We can’t wait to shoot your wedding!
