Guess what?! This darling couple gets married in less than a week! There's nothing like celebrating a wedding on the horizon like throwing it back to their Cherry Creek State Park engagement photos. Dawn and Spence first charmed us last winter, hugging, kissing, giggling and running around snowy fields like two kids in love! Dawn and Spence pose for a portrait in the snow at Cherry Creek State Park in Aurora, CO. Skirting a reservoir and housing a plethora of trails, animals, and open spaces, Cherry Creek State Park, located in Arapaho County, is massive. And not to toot our own horn or anything like that...but every part of it is absolutely beautiful! It's Colorado for goodness sake, it's all beautiful! So, of
May 31st was ‘Yelp's Oh Hey Summer Party’ where 1,000 of Colorado's leading Yelpers and media influencers came to get their first taste of summer in the Mile High. Yelp Denver held their event in our very own Hangar at the Stanley Marketplace and, let us just say, it was LIT. If you happened to miss this magnificent event, have no fear, we, From the Hip Photo, had the opportunity snap some awesome pictures with our Yelp's Oh Hey Summer Party Photo Booth featuring the magical LightWriter! The Yelp's Oh Hey Summer Party Photo Booth was no average photo booth... oh no! It was unique and was a total hit. We got to capture a bunch of really cool people embracing
For many, spring is a time of rebirth, regrowth, and love. For us here at From The Hip Photo, spring is a time of excitement, as our busy wedding season is only just around the corner: summer! But for Michael and Holly, Spring was a time of celebration--engagement celebration in particular! Not only was their Denver Botanic Gardens engagement among the blooming tulips, it came as a complete surprise to Holly! Micheal proposes to Holly at the Denver Botanic Gardens. We love planning surprise engagements with our clients. It's always fun stealthily sneaking around beautiful overlooks, hiking trails, even tree nurseries! This time around, we got to walk through the Botanic Gardens in Denver, completely engrossed in the springtime flowers blooming.
As it turns out, Denver is one of the best cities to live in if you like beer. Even better, if you're super into music and super into beer, we know the perfect place for you. Ratio Beerworks, located on Larimer Street in Denver, is the most tasteful combination of the two, no pun intended! The founders of the brewery met through the independent music scene years back and went on to lead successful careers in marketing, finance, and brewing of course. They eventually teamed up to create this innovative and hip micro brewery for all of us to enjoy! James Alex of Beach Slang performs at Ratio Beerworks in Denver, CO. Ratio Beerworks fosters a lot of awesome events in
Tucked away 11,550 feet up in the Rocky Mountains, Michael and Aaron said “I Do” forever. Situated at the peak of Arapahoe Basin and reachable only by chairlift, the Black Mountain Express, in particular, was the most beautiful Black Mountain Lodge wedding. The two grooms held their wedding on the lodge’s spacious deck under the summer sun and surrounded by towering mountain peaks. Michael, Aaron and their huggable pooch took advantage of the summer sunlight and took adorable pictures on the mountainside before the ceremony. Their spunky wedding party joined them as well! Each groom had three best men and one best woman to accompany them down the aisle and stand by their sides as they closed the current chapter of their
Pizza is one of our favorite food groups in the food pyramid and we think that most of you would have to agree. For this important food group, we've got to give credit to Italy, without their genius, culinary wizards, our taste buds would be utterly disappointed. Now according to Trip Advisor, there are 2,774 places to get pizza in Colorado alone. Four of those locations are Mici and we can HIGHLY advise you (even more than trip advisor) to try their authentic Italian dishes ranging from pizza to pasta to calzones to large salads to hearty soups and paninis! Mici is short for the Miceli family's last name. Though they're currently located in Colorado, they have deep roots back in Italy. It honestly wouldn't
Can we brag about Stanley Marketplace in Aurora enough? No. The answer is always no. Why? Because Stanley is the home of our fox den! Our pride and joy! Our studio! Two years ago when the idea for the marketplace was set in stone and spots inside were being leased, we signed fast. Could you blame us?! Stanley Marketplace in Aurora, CO The building belonged to Stanley Aviation, used as a factory for ejection seats. Where your house sits in Stapleton could very well be one of the places the ejection seats were tested! Did you know that Bob Stanley, the factory's founder, even borrowed bears from the Denver zoo to further test his seats? The doors to the building (including the big red
You've seen us photograph everything from a maternity session to an engagement, a wedding to a family, a comedy event to a fundraiser. We've even photographed delicious dishes from the manh local restaurants Denver has to offer. BUT...have you ever seen our photos of Barclay Crenshaw? You may know him by his stage name Claude Vonstroke, or maybe you know him as the mastermind behind Dirtybird label-- a record label that was founded in January of 2005. Well, we were lucky enough to photograph Barclay Crenshaw while he was traveling through Denver on tour for his new album Sleepy Kids that dropped in January of this year. His first album under his own name rather than his stage name is full of all his favorite parts of music.
Have you ever wondered what accessory would make your engagement photo session, maternity pictures, even your entire wedding all that much more special? Well, look no further because we have your answer right here. Including pets in human photo sessions is a trend that's growing rapidly, and this may sound crazy... but you need a canine. A pooch! A mutt! A pupper! Scientifically speaking, you need a doggo. Not just any pooch though, you need the most adorable, lovable, and loyal fluff ball you can find, and to get even more specific, this pooch needs to be your own. We do not by any means condone the theft of doggos...unless it's for a ride in the car. In that case, we'll let it slide
Elon Musk is a household name, but some people don't know that he has a culinary genius of a brother. Everyone repeat after us: Kimball. Musk. Kimball Musk. Now don't forget it, because he's about to take the Midwest by storm with a massive expansion of his restaurant Next Door, a restaurant that aims to provide the consumer with healthy, affordable, and locally grown food. He plans on having 50 of these restaurants by 2020! The Kitchen was founded by Musk in Boulder, Colorado in 2004 which served up garden-to-table, healthy concepts. He later opened a lower priced restaurant with a similar concept right next door to The Kitchen, and, ironically, he named the new restaurant Next Door. Next Door has three
