Denver Engagement

Claire and Shawn Engaged | Denver, Colorado

Come Cinco De Mayo, these two are starting the rest of their lives together in a whole new way. I'll get to be there with Steph to document the whole thing. I met Claire almost three years ago at her best friends wedding. Such a dream. She stood out to me in the midst of the bridal party. She was quiet with the sweetest spirit surrounding her. She was methodical and careful in her attentiveness for her sweet best friend who was marrying that day. I didn't hear her say much but was so drawn to her. When I heard that she was engaged and would possibly be reaching out to me?! Butterflies! 

Meeting Shawn at this shoot a few weeks ago was so much fun. He's funny, carefree and talkative.. I asked them to go further down the road while we were in the Red Rocks and he grabbed Claire's hand and started running, so eagerly. It felt like I was photographing school kids, smiles, laughter, tickles, kisses and chasing one another. The way Claire adoringly gazes at Shawn and how he totally soaks it up is my favorite. I cannot wait for their Manor House wedding just around the corner. xx- km

Cody + Kylie | Denver, CO Union Station Engagement Photographer

...Middle school for her, high school for him - this is where they met... End of high school for her and the start of college for him - their paths crossed and things progress.  They're young, in love and ready for the life length of sweet marriage NOW.  These two were a gift to spend time with an so easy to photograph.  Cody is quiet and steady and Kylie is saucy and head over heels.  It's like, they cannot get enough of one another!  Their conversation's are drenched in support and inclusion of one another.  Couples drenched in sweetness are my favorite to catch a glimpse of and spend some quality time with.    

A few shots during a little cocktail hour and I learned that they're off to elope in November.  With a small group of family and a few friends supporting them in Breck, I love that their focused on the sweetness of the vows and the significance that they offer alone.  Honeymoon?  They're jumping on a plane to explore the beauty of Thailand.  So many adventures ahead and I'm anxiously awaiting to see + hear about them. 

Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife.
