expressive engagement shoot

It’s challenging for engaged couples and their photographer to create unique engagement photos, but we think Brenda and Oscar, and their wonderful photographer, Civic Photos, brought a fun and very expressive style to this photo shoot, which we appreciated. They very much in love, and have fantastic, creative photos to capture this special time in their lives. We liked the props, the poses and the vintage vibe throughout all of them. Thanks to Civic Photos for sharing it with us, and congrats to the beautiful couple!

lindsay + chad engagement session

This adorable engagement session is definitely one to note :-)

Lindsay and Chad have been dating for over 8 years and are finally tying the knot this summer.

I love how they did a winter engagement shoot for a summer wedding – they’re definitely getting the best of both worlds in Colorado with their photos.
Their creativity and pure bliss in the photos is truly darling, and their excitement is incredibly contagious.

Congratulations, Lindsay and Chad!

{But seriously, how cute are they?!}

engagement video session

We are so excited to share this engagement DVD from up-and-coming Colorado wedding photographer Meredith Moran Photography! Meredith is a wonderful, creative, talented, and sweet person and professional. We’ve certainly never seen a video like this before, and we hope this brings new inspiration for you in sharing your engagement with others :-)

This video is of an adorable engaged couple Mary Beth + Joe. Enjoy!

From the photographer: While I love capturing a story through photos, I wanted to offer couples a unique way to tell their story.  Incorporating places & things they like to do together in a video form allows us to see the little details that you might not get with a photo – how they engage with each other & the surroundings of their favorite spots, the playful joking around, the flirting in action … the stuff that makes you say ‘aww!’

Here are a few ideas for how couples can use their engagement DVD:
{1} a cute save-the-date for guests to watch
{2} an added feature to the wedding website
{3} a background video at an engagement party
{4} an adorable movie feature at a rehearsal dinner
{5} of course, something special for the couple to keep forever

Meredith offers an ‘a la carte’ where couples can get a photo or video engagement session, or both! Pricing for a photo/video package is $400 for up to 5 hours in the Denver area {additional charges for a location outside of Denver}

Meredith can do video sessions for:
{1} engagement sessions
{2} wedding dress shopping
{3}  bridal/couples/baby shower
{4} photojournalistic capture of wedding day
{5} memorable family footage
… you name it!

Visit her website for more information, details and packages.

It’s hard to believe that Marie and Chris met met when they were only 13 years old. After many years of friendship, long-distance and dating, this beautiful couple is finally tying the knot … today!

We wish them endless love as they start their new life together!
Congratulations, Marie and Chris!

From the bride: Having always been a hopeless romantic, I always hoped one day that Chris and I would end up together…

There is something extremely special between us. We are soul mates.:)..

…We are both so happy to have finally caught up with fate.
