Lookout Mountain engagement photos | Melanie and Nick

I was excited when Melanie and Nick asked me to shoot their Lookout Mountain engagement photos near Golden, Colorado. Usually when I’m on top of Lookout Mountain my heart rate is north of 160bpm because I’m riding my bike with friends to Buffalo Bill’s grave at the top. It’s a popular route and training ride for hundreds of road cyclists every single day. We started in Golden along the river before heading up the mountain. The road offers some great views of downtown Golden and even Denver along the way… Read More »

Downtown Denver engagement | Amanda & Cuyler

When I met up with Amanda and Cuyler at Union Station for their downtown Denver engagement session we had such an amazing time, we spent almost two hours at Terminal Bar drinking. Time flies by when there are thirty amazing Colorado craft beers on tap, outstanding atmosphere and three funny people trying to one up each other. Amanda is a nurse and Cuyler works for the Copper Mountain Fire Department so they do a lot for other people and rightfully so I wanted them to have a great time and… Read More »

Artistic Engagement photos in Denver | Amy & Neil

When asked, I describe my style to be heavily influenced by color and strong, geometric lines. More than any other engagement session of the past, this was a prime example of how I see and I really loved how Amy and Neil’s Artistic engagement photos in Denver turned out. Other engagement locations that I love are LoDo, Riverfront Park and Union Station. Neil is a musician and Amy teaches writing so as fellow creatives, they were able to appreciate some of the cool locations that we stumbled upon and didn’t freak… Read More »

Riverfront Park engagement | Carlyle & Michael

It’s not often that I get to photograph my friends so when the opportunity presents itself it’s always something that I look forward to. Michael has been a good friend since we lived next door to each other in the dorms our freshman year of undergrad and we later roomed together during a semester abroad in Rome. Carlyle and I are both marketing geeks so it’s been fun to talk shop while we’ve been able to get to know each other the past eight months or so. Along with a… Read More »

Lower Highlands engagement photos | Krista & Matt

Some couples just get it. I don’t have to say anything. They do their thing and I do mine. Krista and Matt are one of those couples and I’m so glad they allowed me to capture their Lower Highlands engagement photos. It probably didn’t hurt that Matt studied photojournalism in college and it wasn’t Krista’s first time in front of a camera. That really meant that the pressure was all on me. As someone whose personal style lives through graphic elements and color, I couldn’t have asked for much more. It’s… Read More »

Colorful Denver Engagement Photos | Tamara & Sterling

Watching Sterling’s cool, smooth charm bring out Tamara’s bubbly personality was a treat to see. I don’t know what he was telling her but clearly, it was working. Their Colorful Denver engagement photos were a blast to shoot. They came to me with the one word of inspiration, modern. The architecture of the ultra modern Denver Art Museum was the first thing that came to mind. The sharp lines and white walls made it fantastic to shoot in. I’ve also shot artistic engagement photos in Denver outside the museum. I wanted to… Read More »

Retro Engagement Photographers | Elynor & Dermot

Watching Elynor May and Dermot Monks enjoy each other’s company this evening was not only a pleasure to experience but also a joy to photograph as a denver engagement photographer. Their retro engagement session in RiNo was one of my favorites but I’ve also shot other sessions in RiNo. When you combine the interesting locations, amazing light and great fashion that we had to work with you might of thought we were on a movie set tonight. Once again everything fell into place but it’s easy to say that when you… Read More »

Red Rocks engagement | Holly & Luke

I spent an outstanding Colorado evening with Holly Benson and Luke Johnson up at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater photographing their Red Rocks engagement session. The amazing natural concert venue has played host to some of the all time musical legends and with a view that overlooks the city of Denver, it’s definitely a great place to make a few images. Nearby Morrison is home to Willow Ridge Manor that is a great wedding venue. I went to undergrad at DU with both of them and even spent a few days… Read More »
