This blog post with Chelsea and Justin’s downtown Denver engagement photos was originally posted 5/22/14, but through years of growth and change it was a bit lost in the archives, and the photos were no longer displaying. Today I’m bringing it back!
I am SO GLAD I met Chelsea and Justin and so so so so so HAPPY I got to be the one who photographed their downtown Denver engagement photos. These two have a special story for me. Several years ago when I was trying to break away from being a baby photographer and move into doing weddings I needed some wedding experiences. Luckily I had a friend who had a friend (named Lisa) who was getting married soon. My friend asked Lisa if I could intrude on her wedding day and the wedding photographer she had already hired and let me come photograph for my portfolio. This is like the biggest favor you could ever ask for – to jump in on somebody’s wedding day, it was nuts. Surprisingly Lisa (the bride) said yes and now all I had to do was make sure I wouldn’t be annoying to the wedding photographer the couple had hired.
Lucky for me Chelsea was the wedding photographer. She let me follow her around and shoot photos for my portfolio on a day when this was her gig. Little did we both know at the time that she would finally be marrying Lisa’s brother Justin. How small of a world is this?! I am so thankful that Lisa and her husband and their photographer (Chelsea) let me intrude on their day. Without them taking a chance on my I’m sure my business wouldn’t be where it is today.
All of that is why it makes it extra special to be part of Chelsea and Justin’s wedding! I’m looking forward to photographing their ceremony later this summer and then their awesome backyard reception party! I had so much fun photographing these in downtown Denver. I’m hoping well get back to Coohills for more photos on their wedding day since that’s where they had their first date and where Justin proposed – more on that story later!!
