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.
With Thanksgiving looming, we have delicious food on the brain, and what better fix than our date with Biscuits and Berries at Moss Denver!

Here at From the Hip Photo, we are firm believers in the photo booth! While some people might assume that photo booths are only for informal events, we think they can bring entertainment to any celebration. In fact, we think couples should consider a wedding photo booth when planning their big day. In the age of the selfie, we are always taking amusing photos of ourselves and loved ones almost every day. Weddings are no exception! Photo booths help make capturing those special moments even more fun! Even celebrities like Kim and Kanye are on the wedding photo booth train. So Much Time For Activities! There's a lot that happens at a wedding. Your guests are going to be busy participating in dances, meals, and toasts. Why not ensure that one of these wedding activities gives them something to take home at the end of the night? Even the most enthusiastic wedding guest needs a break from dancing the “Cha Cha Slide” at some point. Memories Galore! Wedding photo booths are enjoyable for all ages. They allow everyone, from an adorable 3-year-old child to your grandma (we're amazed she's awake after 9 p.m.), to get together and join the fun. A wedding photo booth

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 weather here in Colorado tends to shift from hot to cold and back again over the course of a single day. If often feels like Colorado's weather doesn't have seasons so much as it does mood swings. At their Sprague Lake engagement shoot earlier this fall, Ashleigh and Tim showed us their secret technique for conquering the confusing Colorado climate: blankets! Love & Order We're willing to bet that most people don't enroll in mock trial class expecting to find love. But that's exactly how Ashleigh and Tim met! As the two teammates grew closer, Ashleigh proposed a trip for the two of them to Iceland. As it turns out, Tim had a proposal of his own in mind. He surprised Ashleigh by popping the question on the last day of their trip. We happen to think an Icelandic proposal sounds pretty romantic, but we'll let the jury decide this one. Sprague Lake So why a Sprague Lake engagement shoot? Well, it's no Iceland, but we happen to think it's pretty cool. Located in Rocky Mountain National Park, Sprague Lake is named after Abner Sprague. Sprague (the guy, not the lake) moved to the area in the late 19th
We might be a little biased, but we believe it's hard to beat Colorado in the summertime. We get low humidity, clear skies, and some of the most incredible views around. These qualities all make Colorado a dream wedding destination. And if you're going to get married in Colorado, why not go all out? That's exactly what Mikal and Andrew did in this mountaintop wedding shoot in Keystone! An Uplifting Experience Most people associate chairlifts with ski trips, not weddings. But Mikal and Andrew aren't like most people, and this isn't like most weddings! Besides, hiking in heels on your special day can be a real drag. The fun-loving couple decided to reach their mountaintop wedding shoot in style. If you ask us, it was worth it. Look at that view! Ages of Affection Having loved ones around is always nice, particularly on a day as important as your wedding. Mikal and Andrew were lucky enough to have generations of family both young and old in attendance to celebrate their devotion to each other. Of course, they also had plenty of friends by their sides as well! We doubt this young flower girl will forget this one-of-a-kind experience anytime soon! An
