Spring is finally here in Colorado. Well, Colorado’s version of spring anyway. And if there is one place that looks as spring-y as ever, the Denver botanical gardens! With the recent snow, I was a little worried about the gardens not looking as lush or full as normal, but I was so wrong! They were as beautiful, colorful and lush as ever!
When I first chatted with Lauren on the phone, I instantly fell in love with their proposal story. And let’s be honest, one of the best things about being a wedding photographer is hearing amazing and tear-jerking proposal stories all of the time! Lauren had told me that on their way to a weekend getaway, Chad had made a detour and stopped at a place that meant a lot to her family. This location was very important to her family and held quite a few memories as well. See Chad had pulled up to the church her parents were married at! I mean, how sweet is that!! I just love that he was able to incorporate such a special location and allow that church to hold one more piece of now their joined families history.
We love to say that our engagement sessions are basically photography boot-camp. It’s a fun time to not only get to know each other better but also get used to posing in front of a camera. We know how weird and awkward it can feel, so we like to show couples that we make it not so weird and definitely not awkward unless you count my lame jokes… because those definitely can be weird. I look forward to each engagement session because I have gotten to know my couples via email, phone, and sometimes even over coffee. So even though it is sometimes our first meeting, it really feels more like meeting old friends.
We love the Denver botanical garden for an engagement session location! And we especially love it in spring! The way everything is blooming adds to the excitement of capturing engagement images! So if you are looking for a location for your next photo session, we highly recommend looking here!
