With the craziness that 2020 threw our way, couples planning to get married had to adapt to the new rules and regulations. While some couples decided to postpone to 2021, others came up with ways to still have a special day without the crowd. From backyard weddings, to Zoom weddings, and elopements at the courthouse, I saw it all throughout the year. For Mary and Nadim, eloping in Downtown Denver was the way to go. The couple signed their marriage certificate at their home and commemorated their marriage with this photo session around Denver’s Union Station. The couple didn’t have prior engagement photos taken, so we considered these Denver engagement photos and celebratory elopement photos all in one.
We met at Denver Union Station and walked all around the area including the front of Union Station Denver, the Wynkoop Bridges, the Millenium Bridge and a few interesting backdrops along the way. Some of my favorite spots were a textured blue wall with the most beautiful color that we found by the Triangle Building and the flowers in bloom on top of the Millenium Bridge.
Wandering around Denver with these two reminded me why I love the city so much. There are so many colors, backdrops and textures all around to be inspired by. While I still see beauty in nature, I am also in awe of the beauty I find in concrete jungles.
We ended the afternoon on the opposite side of Denver Union Station and then we parted ways. I loved how we were able to use only a small portion of Denver as our backdrop, but we still captured so much variety.
