Our team here at From the Hip Photo had one of the best seats in town for Denver Bar & Food Photos with Red Barber. Located in Denver’s RiNo Art District, Red Barber is a rooftop bar retreat with 360-degree views. Serving scenery, cocktails and beer you and your friends can circle around one of their firepits to stay warm. In addition, there are yard games, live music with amphitheater seating, and food with chef grilling appearances.
Did you know that Denver has a Selfie Museum? Well, now you do! The Denver Selfie Museum is an amazing gem, located in the heart of Downtown Denver. We were so excited to team up with Varya from the hit show, 90 Day Fiancé!

How can engagement photos get any sweeter? Kaeli and Sam sugar coated their engagement photos at Scrumptious, a local candy shop in Longmont, Colorado. After the sugar rush, we continued the fun at Cheese Importers, also located in Longmont. The locations were a perfect fit for the couple as the fun, authentic, and romantic sweet delicacies of the relationship are captured. A Sweet Story Coincidentally, the two met while Kaeli was babysitting for a neighbor. Sam just so happened to previously live in that same house where Kaeli was babysitting. Sam knocked on the front door to pick up old mail. As Kaeli opened the door she was in awe as the two locked eyes. Strangers face to face, but that first gaze was the spark of the luscious life that was promised ahead. It was destined to be as the two had family members that also knew each other. What a small world! Sam popped the question while on a romantic trip to Ireland showing us all that love at first sight is in fact real! Sweet & Savory Locations There are no boundaries when choosing locations to shoot your engagement photos. We love getting creative and finding new
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 want someone to travel the world with? Lily and Jacob never shy away from a new adventure and exploring a new place! Always trying to climb the next mountain together. Love encourages us to reach new heights! That is why this beautiful couple hiking to the top of a snowy peak made these photos so much more special. It is a scene that showcases beauty almost as radiant as their love. In between Keystone and Breckenridge, CO sits a winter wonderland, Sapphire Point. With an elevation of 9,500 feet, this gorgeous overlook of Dillion Reservoir is the perfect spot for any thrill seeker. Lily’s velvet dress provided the perfect complement to the deep green of the trees and sparkling white of the snow. Sparks Fly Meeting in college at a Fourth of July party, these two are meant for an exploding love story! With sparks flying around them the night they met, it is clear why this session was electric. True happiness illuminates from their smiling faces! It is obvious this is the kind of love that hugs you so tight you always feel safe. Even when looking over the edge of a cliff! After school, Lily and
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
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
While traditional weddings are all good and well, elopements offer an entirely underrated opportunity to focus on the most important aspects of a new marriage. Personal and intentional, elopement weddings are a blast to be a part of! We loved capturing Deborah and Kevin’s intimate elopement photos in Colorado because they made clear what was most important: marrying one another. What’s the Buzz? Most couples want to escape the stress of planning a big wedding and considering family and friends’ opinions and feelings. Elopements allow couples to sidestep all the pressure that comes with planning and just focus on marrying one another. We are big fans of this untraditional wedding route, and we even wrote a blog post about it! Check out, “The Importance of Weddings Photos | Especially for an Elopement” post! Considering if an elopement wedding is right for you? Check out “The Pros and Cons of Eloping” by Sandy Malone! True Love Inside & Out Deborah and Kevin went from a luxury indoor setting at Denver’s Oxford Hotel to an outdoor dream venue at Arrowhead Golf Course. These venues proved the perfect spots for Deborah and Kevin’s elopement photos. The Oxford’s white walls and elegant décor made
