Denver Engagement Photographer with Chrissy & Tony at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre
As a Denver engagement photographer, I get to go to a lot of fun places like Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre. Chrissy and Tony wanted the iconic red rock formations to be part of their engagement photos so we picked this spot as the place for our engagement session. The park has a large open air amphitheatre that hosts concerts throughout the year. There are also a number of different trails that wander through the rock formations. The amphitheatre can sometimes get really busy, even when there isn’t a concert happening, with people wanting to check out the space. So we stuck to some of the less popular trails to get away from the crowds a bit.
Wind made this into a 2 Day Session
We ended up spreading this engagement session out over two days because of the wind. The first day we met, the wind was crazy. I’m not sure what exactly the how fast it got up to, but it was pretty intense, easily probably 30mph. We were all there, so I thought why not try to make it work. We took some portraits but since most of them were super wind blown, we decided to come back on a calmer day to do some more. My job as a Denver engagement photographer is to make sure my clients are happy. I want to do everything I can to ensure my clients have a positive experience and come away with photos they love. If that means doing a reshoot, I’m happy to do so.
In hindsight, we probably could have postponed that first day when we saw the wind in the forecast. But I’m of the opinion that you never know how things are going to turn out till you’re there in the middle of it. Colorado weather changes so quickly and sometimes its possible to find some pockets of stillness in a crazy wind storm. I love adventuring and sometimes part of the adventure is enduring weather that’s a little chaotic.
Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre
Red Rocks Park was a Civilian Conservation Corps project in the 1930’s. Within the park, there are 738 acres of protected space. Its a mix of prairie land and large red rock formations that jut out of the ground at all kinds of different angles. In certain parts you can also see views of the rolling foothills and parts of the Denver suburbs. Winter can be really beautiful here too with contrasting white and red with the snow. It was a really fun place for us to hike around and do engagement photos. Its an iconic spot in Denver that’s definitely worth a visit.
Thanks Chrissy & Tony
Chrissy and Tony, you two were such good sports for adventuring with me through that windy day at Red Rocks. Thanks so much for inviting me to capture your engagement photos. I’m glad that we spent two different days here at this spot and that the wind was much calmer on the second day. I’m really excited to meet up with you two for the wedding next year. I hope you’re doing well, see you soon!
