Poppy & Pine | A Blooming Business in Stanley Marketplace

From the Hip Photo

Having just moved into our studio space at Stanley Marketplace, we're so thrilled to be surrounded by so many incredible local businesses. It's a truly eclectic mix and we're fortunate to count most of them not just as neighbors but also as collaborators. One of our longest-running partnerships is with the team over at Poppy & Pine, a unique floral shop that not only has bouquets to cater to any customer but also has the cutest selection of gifts. (Seriously: Mother's Day is sneaking up fast and we're not saying you're a last minute kind of person...but keep Poppy & Pine in mind if you wake up on May 14th empty-handed!) We've recently chatted with Suzanna, a floral designer at Poppy

Travelers of the Lost Dimension | A Parallel World Inside of Stanley Marketplace

From the Hip Photo

Have you ever had an alien encounter? As a child, were you obsessed with Journey to the Center of the Earth, or maybe even Land of the Lost? Here's your chance to jump into the middle of a journey quite similar to those childhood favorites we've all loved and adored! Travelers of the Lost Dimension is an experiential theater program put on by the Denver Center for the Performing Arts' immersive offshoot, Off-Center.

This spunky, child-friendly show takes place here at our lovely home, Stanley Marketplace, traveling in and out of private and public spaces. We highly

Gettin’ Lucky At The Mansion | A Fun & Funky Wedding Show

From the Hip Photo

Thanks to Courtney, an expert planner at The Day Of, we were able to participate in a crazy-awesome wedding show at the Grant-Humphreys Mansion in Denver, Colorado. She thoughtfully assembled what she referred to as "the tribe," a gaggle of unique, vendors from across the Denver metro area. There was even a Grant-Humphreys Mansion wedding as part of the festivities! (Sorta.) The mansion itself is extremely beautiful and full of charm! Having been built in 1904, there is so much Colorado history behind it. The coolest fact, however, is that the second owners of the mansion, A.E. Humphreys, had two sons that were very taken with airplanes. So taken, that they opened Denver's first commercial airport, which is now the site

A Gorgeous Eldorado Canyon Engagement | John & Natalie

From the Hip Photo

You know those little side roads you drive past all the time? They're peripherally familiar but you don't actually know where they lead. Well, We highly recommend you turn down one sometime. If you take the chance, you might end up in a beautiful place like Eldorado Canyon where we had the pleasure of capturing this recent Eldorado Canyon engagement photo session! John and Natalie were so dreamy among the leaves that had begun their colorful journey into autumn. Not only this couple showcase their more formal side, the pair was able to do a complete 180 and show off their football pride! Natalie looked simply ravishing in her black minidress. The sparkles on her dress radiated a purple hue

Miette Et Chocolat and Their Chocolate Works of Art

From the Hip Photo1 comment

An incredible thing (atop the the long list of incredible things) about having our studio at Stanley Marketplace, is that we're located across and up from Miette Et Chocolat. We're not trying to brag (okay, maybe just a little), but we literally have the world's best view of their kitchen. Essentially, this means we get to watch their intricate, talent-driven, chocolate artistry whenever we want. The craftsmanship that David Lewis and Gonzalo Jimenez, along with their expert team, put into each delicious and delicate piece they make is something you don't come across often. While Miette Et Chocolat was busy making chocolate from scratch, they invited us into their kitchen for an interview about their divine company, as well as

Kaylen, Kaylan & Their Growing Family

From the Hip Photo

We need to check the Official From the Hip Photo Hall of Records, but our hunch is that this may have been our first newborn photo session with a couple who share the same name! Not only do they share the same name (give or take a vowel), they have a beautiful new baby girl together. The two mommies and their baby were the epitome of perfection! Kaylen and Kaylan's little girl was such a good sleeper, snoozing through the majority of the photo session. Their session took place the day after Halloween, so you know know we had to snap some shots of their newborn dressed for the holiday. She was... a string bean! We were lucky enough to

Michelle and Dana | Adorable Surprise Proposal in Boulder

From the Hip Photo

Photographing a surprise proposal is always a treat. It gets our adrenaline going almost as much as it does the proposer and the proposee! For this specific session, we were in Boulder for surprise proposal photography in a Christmas tree nursery. Our photographer pretended that she was taking photos on behalf of Creekside Tree Nursery and captured the pair cutting down their own Christmas tree, which is something Dana has always wanted to do. We caught the moment Michelle proposed to Dana, which happens to be the exact moment our hearts melted! The lovebirds' British bulldog, Finley, was all about her parent's getting married. She waged her nubby little tail faster than Dana could say yes! Se was also a great stand to display
