70s Inspired Denver Engagement Session

A 70s Inspired Denver Engagement Session
Loving every bit of this session. Macy and Ben are repeat clients of mine. I shot Ben’s proposal, some random hiking days with them, family sessions.. basically all of the above. [YOU CAN SEE THIS OTHER CUTE HIKING SESSION OF THE TWO OF THEM HERE] I was so stoked to put together a fun session for the two of them. I had this vision for their denver engagement session. I kept seeing this old camper RV on the side of the road when I would go for walks in the morning near my apt. Everytime I pass I think.. Dang this would be kind of a random but fun spot to do a 70s inspired photoshoot. Luckily Ben and Macy are total hippies and were 100% down to get a little wild and dress up for their Engagement Session.
Engagement Session Inspiration
When it comes to shooting your engagement session, you can literally do whatever you want. Yes I am in Colorado so a lot of what I do are in the gorgeous mountains. And there is nothing wrong with that at all. The mountains make for some amazing photos. But when planning your session really think about who you two are as a couple. You might not even realize that some of the most random places can make for a really great engagement session location. This 70s inspired denver engagement session was literally shot right outside of my apartment complex. Nothing fancy… just shot in the street and on the sidewalks.
Some things that always inspire me when working with a couple are their personalities, what they love as a couple, and of course particular styles of shooting. But really, I like to focus on the people I am photographing when I think about what and where to shoot them. Macy and Ben are total hippies. I feel like sometimes they were actually meant to be living in the 70s. So, when I brought up the idea for their engagements to be done using this retro looking camper on the side of the road as their backdrop, they knew it was the perfect spot to take their denver engagement session. They also didn’t mind being a little carefree and wild with the photos and that made it so much fun.
