Natalie & Ryan – Downtown Denver Engagement

FILED IN: Engagements

Back in July I received THE sweetest email from a bride and groom searching for a wedding photographer. The email was filled with compliments of our work/website, shared passions for the great outdoors, and it really felt as if there was an instant connection. This was one of those moments when you just know deep down you have to have this client. Which is why when they responded saying they wanted to meet with Zach and I, I literally screamed. I had such a great feeling about Natalie & Ryan.

We met Natalie & Ryan at the newly remodeled Union Station and right from the start I was sold. They were so excited about not only their wedding at the GORGEOUS Della Terra Mountain Chateau, but also about us. It made us happy to know that they loved us as much as we loved them and to see how excited they were about having us document their story. Our couples are important to us and we always want to ensure we’re a great fit for them as well. Our biggest goal is to walk away knowing we served our couples the best we could, create an incredible experience, and to hopefully leave with a new friendship. I have no doubt that is exactly what will happen here.

Natalie & Ryan met at his sisters wedding. Natalie was the maid of honor and they immediately hit it off. Things wouldn’t come easy though with Natalie in one state and Ryan in another. So, they dated long distance until Natalie finally decided to moved from Indianapolis to Denver to be with Ryan. Long distance is hard work. If these two can survive that, they’re stronger for it one and two they can get through anything together. These two really are a perfect match. They are sweet, loving, outgoing and SO funny! Natalie, you are beautiful and such a breath of fresh air. I love how much confidence you have… we definitely have a lot in common and I can’t wait to get to know you better. Ryan, I love how easily you can make Natalie laugh and how sweet you are to her. You’re a true gentleman! Thank you so much for totally knocking your engagement session out of the park. I can only imagine the images we’ll capture at Della Terra <3 We are so honored to get the chance to work with you two. Heck, you both had me laughing the entire shoot so I can only image how much fun we’re going to have on your wedding day 🙂

Zach and I can not wait for your big day at such a special place. Thank you for trusting us with such a big moment in your lives. You two are truly amazing and we adore the love you two share. Here’s to the countdown, love, and to climbing fourteeners!
