The perfect representation of the natural beauty of Colorado and the flare of Boulder.
From the Hip Photo teams up with Katie and Ernest to capture a cozy Spring engagement session at foggy Chautauqua Park in Boulder, Colorado.
Laura and Justin’s idyllic Blackstone Rivers Ranch wedding, just a stone’s throw from Downtown Denver, had all the elements of a magical wedding. An Idaho Springs, CO Wedding Shoot Idaho Springs, CO is a perfect stop off I-70. A walk around downtown shows many well-preserved historic buildings, as well as plenty of quality restaurants. In town, you can find the 125-year-old Argo Gold Mine and Mill and even try panning for gold! Not far from town, is a working mine, the Phoenix Gold Mine. There you can learn about modern and historical mining techniques. As with Argo, at Phoenix Gold Mine you can do a little gold panning yourself! While you're there, enjoy the hot mineral waters of the springs after which the town is named. The Indian Springs Resort offers overnight accommodations, or visit the geothermal springs and caves for a fitting cap to your day. Idaho Springs is a wonderland of aspen and evergreen trees that provide an ideal backdrop to any memorable event. It is not often you find a locale that rivals the beauty and remote-feel of Idaho Springs, while maintaining its accessibility. Located just 40 minutes from Denver, make Idaho Springs your next wedding destination! We would like to give a big thank you and big
Who doesn't love a snow-covered mountain overlooking the Rockies as their backdrop for engagement photos? Monique and Brian loved it so much they hiked up Lost Gulch in the middle of winter! It was freezing cold but they didn't have a care in the world. Visiting from Atlanta, Georgia, these two made it look like they hiked Lost Gulch every weekend. From ATL to the Mile High City I am sure that Atlanta has plenty to offer, but nothing beats the Rockies mid-winter! With an endless range of peaks and valleys, you can never go wrong. Lost Gulch just so happens to be one of our favorite locations. Lost Gulch Overlook is nestled in Flagstaff Mountain which overlooks the nearby city of Boulder. The Boulder area is filled with fun and eclectic people, places, and things to do! From the awesome shops on Pearl street to the beautiful trails surrounding the city-- you can't go wrong! The only thing that could have made this day better would have been some cozy hot chocolate on the mountaintop! Let's Take a Trip to Colombia (it's warmer there!) It wouldn't be an engagement session without an engagement story! After knowing each other since middle
The weekend before Thanksgiving is a time for lounging on the sofa and planning out how much stuffing you can eat while still leaving room for pie. Usually, at least. This year, we spent the weekend taking some outdoor maternity photos with Mariah and her beautiful family at Chautauqua Park in Boulder. Even though it was mid-November, you can see that it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in these outdoor maternity photos! A Family Affair While some maternity shoots are solo events, Mariah got her whole family in on the fun. Her daughters came out equipped with earmuffs and mittens, a wise (and fashionable!) decision given the chilly weather. They seemed to have an absolute (snow)ball playing around and taking photos with Mom and Dad. Of course, in addition to full family photos, we were also sure to capture some more solemn moments between Mariah and her husband. Getting down on one knee in the snow is a true sign of dedication - we think we'll stay behind the camera, though. Snowy Chautauqua Part of why we were so excited about these outdoor maternity photos was the location. Chautauqua Park is one of our favorite spots in
For centuries, we've been using the idiom "it fits like a glove" to describe well-fitting garments. But it's 2018 now, and we don't wear gloves all that often anymore. Frankly, we think it's about time for our entire outfits to start fitting well. Working in the photography industry, weddings and other formal events tend make up the bulk of our business. Because of this, we are especially appreciative of the work that Bespoke Edge does to help Colorado's men look their best. Bespoke Edge offers stylish, custom menswear for the modern man (or groom!) Keeping It Local While many similar menswear chains are massive, nationally-owned corporate entities, Bespoke Edge is a local business. It's even family owned! Ron Wagner and his sons, Brett and Ryan, are focused on providing custom menswear to Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins. When you shop at Bespoke Edge, you know you're dealing with a business that cares about more than your money. Special Day, Special Clothes Your wedding day is an unforgettable experience. It follows that you would want to look your absolute best, particularly if you've got a certain photography company in tow! With so much planning already being required to ensure your wedding
Nothing says joy like fresh air, toasted marshmallows, and the holiday season! With cozy clothes and some ready smiles, we went with Keith, Hawzien, and their two adorable sons for some family photos at Boulder Tree Farm! Naturally, we had that giddy feeling that comes with holiday cheer while we played hide and seek under the trees and afternoon sun. The Tree Farm Creekside Tree Nursery, or Boulder Tree Farm, provides dozens of trees and shrubs for home, business or custom landscaping projects. Of course, when we visited with Keith and Hawzien in early December, this place had its Christmas tree selection on full display! Trees of all shapes, sizes, and kinds made a spectacular pine maze and the most wonderfully scented air! We even experienced some déjà vu from Dana and Michelle’s tree farm proposal at this very location! Family Festivities As always, we made it our mission to capture the most beautiful moments with this sweet family of four. Each of them was absolutely rocking the patterned shirts and cozy button jackets. Now, you might think patterns on the whole family could look a little chaotic. However, this family matched impeccably with tones of blue, grey, and browns.
Rustic barrels and illuminated ampersands helped make Kristina and James’ big day a beary foxy wedding! We had the honor of photographing this couple in two favorite wedding Colorado locations! Lily Lake in Estes Park, Colorado hosted the ceremony (check out our other Estes Park sessions here). Then, Frasca Food and Wine catered the reception near Boulder, Colorado. Their guests were charming and their love was as bright as the smiles on their faces! A Foxy Aesthetic If there’s one thing we embrace wholeheartedly, it’s a love of life and taste for all things whimsical. And perfect enough, everything about Kristina and James’ wedding was completely fun and creative! Their Estes Park ceremony featured a backdrop of wooden barrels and a purple light that matched the bouquets and wedding party’s dresses. No need for a whole party of bridesmaids and groomsmen: these two took the spotlight side by side and said their vows with truth and a healthy dose of jokes, too. Kristina’s adorable 18-month-old niece looked just about as beautiful as her stunning aunt. Her little white dress and purple hair flower fit right in as she danced, giggled, and even napped with her lovable family. Of course, we can’t forget
From photographing their engagement to their wedding, we have made a great friendship with these two! Now it’s three years since their engagement, and they are back with a baby bump! Alexandra and Noam are expecting, and we went to photograph their maternity photos at Lost Gulch Overlook! Look Who’s Back, Back Again! Lost Gulch Overlook near Boulder is a frequent spot for us for so many reasons. As you can see from all our other Lost Gulch photo sessions, this spot is ideal for any occasion! Colorado mountain views? Check. Sunrise and sunset glows? Check. Wooded hideaways? Also check. No matter the time of year or the occasion, Lost Gulch is kind of our not-so-secret spot, and Alexandra and Noam were the perfect subjects! Who would have thought that when we photographed their engagement and wedding back in 2015 that we would be on top of a mountain helping celebrate their coming baby? These two are due in September of this year, and their excitement is more than evident. Eager with kisses and genuine in laughter, Alexandra and Noam clearly can’t wait to meet this little one in person. Best Dressed While there is a lot on the worldwide
You may know Chautauqua Park as a popular outdoor park in the stunning Boulder, Colorado. You may also be familiar with our previous engagement photos at Chautauqua. We love this versatile area because, as we’ve learned, it’s not only one of the best outdoor exploring spots, but it’s perfect for engagement and family photo sessions! A Fabulous Four On their daughter’s birthday, this family asked us to shoot their family photos at — you guessed it — Chautauqua Park! We were thrilled to be back in Boulder to snap this sweet family of four among the stunning Colorado outdoors. Their various print tops and comfortable jeans were perfect for the start of the spring season! The family's lovey-dovey vibes were totally adorable, so our job was more than easy. With two lovable little girls and two sweet parents, we laughed and joked right along with them. The Perfect Park As you can tell from our previous sessions at Chautauqua Park, to say this place is stunning does not do it justice. This place is clearly good for the mind, body and soul. In addition to the flatiron views and rolling hills, this 80-acre park has picnic areas, hiking trails, campgrounds, playgrounds and gardens
