5 Best Engagement Locations in Denver

So you're engaged in Denver! Congrats! I love Denver's rustic and natural charm. I think it's one of the best places for engagement photos, and I'm excited to share with you some of my top locations to go for a photography session!

1. Red Rocks

The Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater is a popular location for not only engagement photos but also weddings. The event space there is substantial but what really makes this location sing is the breathtaking rocky views. Using these awesome natural elements, you can create some epic engagement photos for your walls at home.

2. Downtown Denver

Denver has an awesome downtown area that can make for a fun urban engagement photography session. Just drive on down and galavant around the streets grabbing a spontaneous photo here and there. There are some awesome architectural elements that really make you see the real Denver. 

3. Lookout Mountain

Lookout Mountain Park in Golden, CO is one of those awesome little hikes that affords some spectacular views of the valley. I love this one for engagement photos because you can get intimate in the trees and on the trail, and then get some sweeping vistas.

4. Eldorado Springs

Eldorado Springs and Canyon is a cute town out near Boulder, CO that has some really amazing hikes and walks that lead to some spectacular engagement photos. I love the closeness of the mountains and the adventurous outdoorsy feel of the area. 

5. Wash Park or Neighborhood Areas

Another great option for engagement photos in Denver, is to check out your neighborhood parks or shops. These can make a unique and intimate session for the couple who want to stay close to home. If you're struggling with ideas, think about Washington Park as a downtown park area that provides a ton of nooks and crannies to take engagement photos in.

Hopefully, this helps give you some ideas for places to take engagement photos in and around Denver, Colorado. If you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments section below!

5 Best Locations to Get Married at in Denver

I love Denver, Colorado. So much so that my husband and I moved near there. I have some amazing friends there and I've been to visit multiple times. Since I've traveled around quite a bit here, I thought it would be awesome to give you some ideas for the best places to get married in Denver. So without further ado, here are my picks for the best wedding venues in Denver:

1. Red Rocks

The Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater is one of the more popular places to get married in Denver, CO. It has the amazing beauty of the rock formations and excellent staff to help your day go splendidly. It's perfect for that intimate breathtaking view.

2. Moss Denver

Moss Denver is one of my favorite downtown Denver wedding locations for the urban bride. Think loft style with brick, open ceilings, and concrete floors. It houses at most 200 guests which I think is the perfect size. 

3. Denver Botanical Gardens - York Street

If you're more into the floral and fauna locations, look no further than the Denver Botanical Gardens. The location on York Street offers lush gardens as the background to your wedding. I have friends who love that garden atmosphere, so I recommended this for their wedding venue. 

4. Church Ranch Event Center

The Church Ranch and Event Center has everything you could ever need to setup the best wedding ever. Their staff and vendors are the best: completely organized without the Bride needing to plan too much. It has a stunning location that makes for some excellent photos too!

5. Shupe Homestead

Last but certainly not least, the Shupe Homestead is perfect for the rustic Bride in you. Mountain views, amazing barns, and a setting in the country are the perfect venue descriptions to get the country Brides out there!
