As a photographer in Colorado I’m usually photographing couples up in the mountains. Doing some gamer engagement photos was totally different and amazing! Other photographers would give just about anything to have mountains nearby to photograph in. I love them, but it’s so much fun to get out of that element and do something really unique. I absolutely love it when engaged couples ask for something like this. Engagement sessions that really scream personality and something unique to you just makes the photos more authentic and personal.

When Ellen and Ben asked to do their photos at The Wizard’s Chest in Denver I was totally game. They’ve both worked here at various times in their lives and spent countless hours gaming there too. We arrived a little bit before closing and walked around looking at all the fun dice, knick knacks, and other geeky things we really wanted, but probably don’t need. Once it closed and everyone cleared out we got to start taking photos!!

I love everything about combining a love of Cthulhu and My Little Pony!

We played with all the miniatures for fun!

Magic is real. Ellen performed a fancy trick and Ben disappeared!

Don’t worry, the magic couldn’t get rid of Ben though, we got him back and they played some Imperial Assault.

We did go outside and take a few non-gamer style photos. I love photos like this where people are laughing. Laughter is the best medicine!
