Denver Engagement Session Photography {Natasha + James}

City Park Denver Engagement

I never get bored of doing engagement session photography in Denver’s City Park. There are so many locations to explore–under trees, along the water, near the pavilion, in the gazebo, by some of the entrance gates, by fountains. It is a great urban park to spend time walking around, taking photos, and getting to know my wedding couples. And this is exactly what I did with Natasha and James last spring.

Although an engagement session isn’t 100% necessary, I do encourage couples to participate in one. Even though I meet my couples during the initial consultation meeting, it is far more fun to connect while exploring Colorado parks or cities (or wherever is meaningful to the couple). Plus, besides getting to know each other, doing an engagement session helps put couples at ease on their wedding day! By then, couples are a bit more familiar with what it is like to be in front of the lens. Plus I get to be a total nerd telling lame jokes to help get people to relax and laugh.

hey there!


I've been photographing families professionally since 2006. I am a wife, mama to 2 boys, companion to 2 cats who are named after members of the royal British family, a former preschool teacher. I love running, hiking 14ers, sparkly clothes, the band Phish, river float trips, St. John USVI, farm CSAs, and Colorado blue skies.
