They say opposites attract and this describes Melissa and Nick perfectly! Nick is a country boy who wanted barns, fields and an outdoor session for his engagement photos. However Melissa, a city girl at heart, had a different idea. As their photographer, I embraced their differences and provided a session that incorporated both of their desires! We had such a great time at both locations and this couple was able to make great memories while capturing timeless portraits.
Nick and Melissa had their first date at the Union Station Terminal Bar in Denver, so we started there for our first location. The Union Station also provided a classic city feel to their session while they were able to re-live those special moments they shared on their first date together and even the table they sat at for their date. Including your favorite places that you love together into your engagement session day is such a great idea! As a photographer, I want nothing more than to tell your story together and I customize each session to make it personal and unique to you.
Now that we had some great urban shots, we had to do go somewhere more rural for Nick! There aren’t a whole lot of barns in the heart of Denver and the ones I found just didn’t quite have the right feel. So, we headed to Columbine Open Space in Larkspur, Colorado to finish their session. There, we were able to get those country photos he wanted and add a rustic feel to the engagement photo gallery. We took some photos by the barn, got in the tall grass (and checked for rattlesnacks first!) and enjoyed the amazing mountain view this location provides. This session was a little longer than a typical engagement session would be but I knew that, in order to document the story of this couple, we had to do a little urban and a little rural!
In a few months these love birds will tie the knot at Baldoria on the Water. I love this Denver venue and am so excited to see their wedding day come together! For now, I hope you enjoy these photos from their engagement session! They may be opposites, but they fit together perfectly!
