Downtown Denver

What better way to explore the historic neighborhoods and stunning architecture of Denver than with a couple’s session? Booking your elopement based out of downtown is another great option. Industrial buildings, cozy homes, murals, blooming flowers, vibrant trees, and brick walls are just some of the downtown elements that we can incorporate into your photos.

In Home Session

Get ready for lots of snuggles in bed, cooking together in the kitchen, hanging out on the couch drinking beers, pillow fights, a cozy bath in the claw foot tub, or all of the above. In home sessions offer endless possibilities for capturing how you truly are as a couple in the comfort of your home. These sessions can be done in your own home, in a rented airbnb, or in my home (click here to see it).

Night Out

What do you two like to do when you go out together? Perhaps its grab some beers, attend a concert in the park, or play pool at your local dive bar. Whatever it is that you enjoy, we can plan a session around it. One of my favorite “out on the town” sessions included bar hopping for fancy cocktails, sipping martinis and taking photos on the floor, getting giant macaroni burritos, and then finishing at a hookah bar. There is so much room for adventure and I make a pretty good third wheel if I do say so myself.
