Summer is always an exciting time here at From The Hip Photo. But between the engagements, weddings, and all of our other adventures, we also like to sit and relax with a cold beer. That part is what inspired us to create a monthly happy hour as part of our Exposure! series. See what you missed during our July Exposure! Happy Hour!
When people talk about candid photography vs posed photography, they're referring to the ability to capture candid and true images organically in the moment as opposed to a more constructed, posed approach.
Not to brag, but this summer's intern crew here at From the Hip Photo is pretty freakin' awesome. We are lucky to have so many skilled, interesting people lending their unique talents to our efforts here and we couldn't be happier with this bunch!
Meet local Denver business and From the Hip Photo friend Pearl Street Lights! We recently teamed up with them to provide an excellent set of prizes for our #ShowOffYourLights July photo contest and wanted to showcase this wonderful company. Pearl Street Lights is located in Lakewood, just outside of Denver, Colorado, and makes candles and torches using upcycled beer and wine bottles.
Emily and Brendan are getting married in New York, but they love Colorado so much that they did a double session for their engagement photos. We started out in Denver for some cool urban wine bar engagement photography and made our way over to Red Rocks for some fun outdoor photos - dog obviously included!
The shiny rock is a no-brainer when it comes to a great engagement photo session outfit accessory. But how do you two decide what else to wear? We know that sifting through your closet to choose something flattering and photogenic can be a truly tough task. Engagement photos should be full of fun and free of worry, so we're here to help! We like to think we've learned a thing or two over the years, so we brainstormed some simple color combinations to help decide what to wear for engagement photo perfection! Check it out!
Wedding season is in full swing, plus our internship program is operating on all cylinders, with talented young photographers and students joining up with us for a few months. One of these summer interns is Julia. Let's learn a little more about her and her recent west coast photo adventure!
So the big question has finally been popped! Hooray, you're engaged! But now you're probably dealing with a lot of other questions. Wedding decorations, dates, themes, guest lists, venues... We know for a fact that it can be seriously overwhelming. Lucky for you, From the Hip Photo is here to help! First things first: engagement photos. And first first things first: the engagement photo location. We've put together a quick little list of five tips and tricks to help you decide on the perfect engagement photo location, so you can check the very first thing off your long list of "I do" 'to-dos'!
