Today I’m going to share Trent and Dillon’s LGBTQ+ Denver engagement photos! I’m feeling ready to get the story of their wedding out there, even more, this year. One of my favorite things about 2017 was a project I did with a group of vendors. Wedding vendors love to get together in groups to network and create projects together. We’re creatives, so it’s very natural! We love doing what wedding vendors call “styled shoots.” These are typically mock wedding photoshoots where you get a couple, and each wedding vendor like a florist, planner, etc. contribute their skills to the shoot. At the end of the styled shoot, photos are shared as inspiration and use for all the vendors involved and often we try to get the shoot published on a wedding blog. It’s a great way for us to network, and get our names out there. One of my favorite planners, Mariah at Details Details, and I had been thinking about doing a rainbow styled shoot for some time, but then we thought what if it was a little pop-up elopement at Denver’s PRIDE Festival where everything would be rainbow themed anyway?
Eventually, that idea for a styled shoot/mock wedding became a real wedding. We decided with our vendor friends that rather than make this a mock wedding, let’s make it real, so we truly invest our time in an actual couple. Mariah and I jumped into this idea, and that’s how we met Trent and Dillon who were willing to let us plan their entire day and even take the extra step of getting married on a float at Denver’s PRIDE Parade! I’ll be sharing those photos soon, but in the meantime here is Trent and Dillon’s adorable engagement session. We had a ton of fun hanging out this day! I’m so thankful Mariah joined us for confetti duty and that Trent’s daughter was also part of the entire shoot, she’s the sweetest! Also, Trent and Dillon had a special request pose that involved a bit of acrobatics. It was a really hilarious moment trying to figure that one out!
