Colorado Wedding Photographer – Downtown Denver Engagement
When I set out to do an engagement photoshoot in downtown Denver or in any place in Colorado for that matter, we typically pick a meeting place and then we just wander and I just look for the light, interesting architecture, beautiful colors, textures, etc. It’s usually without a specific plan. For this shoot with Robin and Sean, whose wedding I’ll be photographing coming up next month at Boettcher Mansion, the one thing I wanted to try was to play with some parking structures. To non-photographers (or maybe even some photographers) that may sound strange, but their structures allow for some interesting lighting, architecture, etc. Plus, there was one parking garage downtown that I had been to once many years ago, which I remember actually having a very nice view of downtown Denver (and the mountains too, but they ended up being obscured by clouds). So, rare as it is, I had a specific destination in mind–to mix in with our regular wanderings in search of nice light. Here’s the funny thing– Sean is a parking maniac! I don’t mean he parks cars with reckless abandon. But his career centers around PARKING! He’s the Manager of Parking Operations for the city of Denver. Spend an afternoon with Sean and you will quickly learn that the world of parking is very, very complex. It was just so serendipitous that I happened to pick parking as a focus of our shoot. Sean was actually a little hesitant… “Uh… you want to photograph us in parking garages? That’s going to feel like I’m going to work!” I asked him to trust me, things will turn out beautifully. In the end, I think it was a very good decision. Next, I’ll have to photograph them at a beautiful mansion… whatever will I do!?!?
