One of the things I love most about being a Denver photographer is all the beautiful backgrounds I have at my fingertips! Within minutes I can be downtown doing an urban senior photo shoot or in the mountains photographing an engagement session. There are so many possibilities! So today I wanted to share images from one of my first anniversary sessions from out here in the mountains. Brianne and Jeff are good friends and actually a past wedding couple of mine. Brianne is from my hometown in Iowa and the couple was married at The Surf Ballroom, an iconic Iowa venue that is known for the many famous music artists that have played there such as Santana, BB King, ZZ Top, Martina McBride, Lynryd Skynyrd and of course the legendary final performance by Buddy Holly. So since they had a rock and roll themed wedding, we decided for their anniversary session to showcase the beautiful outdoor scenery of Colorado which they now call home.
The couple loves the beautiful Roxborough Park area and we didn’t have to go far to find some great locations. The night before the session a storm had come through and laid a couple inches of beautiful fresh snow which made the area even more beautiful! However, it was then a tad bit chilly but Brianne, Jeff and their two dogs were prepared with homemade hot chocolate and coordinating outerwear! 🙂 We started out the session at the Arrowhead Golf Course, a favorite location for the couple to enjoy brunch with friends or an occasional round of golf. I just loved the view of the red rocks and golf course from the venue’s ceremony area right outside the clubhouse. Then Brianne had found a great location on one of the nearby walking paths that had some more beautiful rock formations. We ended the session at the couple’s home where, after some bribing with doggie treats, we got Bugsy and Cobain to sit under the tree together.
Congratulations Brianne and Jeff on your first year of marriage and am so excited to document this next year as your family grows even more! 🙂 And a special thank you to Arrowhead Golf Course for allowing us to use your space!
