Colorado Brewery Engagement Photos at New Belgium
I have the most Colorado style engagement session featured on the journal today with this beautiful set of brewery engagement photos. Not only did it take place at New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins which is one of Colorado’s most loved breweries but this engagement photo session also features this couple’s dog and a pretty airstream trailer!
I love when engaged couples decide they want to do an engagement photo session that incorporates their unique interests. Not only does it make the photoshoot more personal and fun but it tells more of a story about the couple. Jen & Alex are my kind of people. They are into beer and music. And they’re specifically into delicious craft beer which Colorado is known for. I read somewhere that we have over 200 established breweries and Denverites love to experiment with making their own homebrews.
We originally were planning to photograph along Colfax and stopping in at some different bars and catching the exterior of the Bluebird theatre, but that plan was scrapped when they realized they could be photographed at one of Colorado’s most well known and beloved breweries, the New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins. Fun fact is that my #1 favorite beer ever is the Ranger IPA from New Belgium. (But I like the original recipe, I’m not as into the one they put out now) We drove up on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and spent the evening photographing in the tasting room, the gorgeous gardens that surround the brewery, and of course the Fat Tire bikes which the brewery uses heavily in their marketing. I’m a bit of a vintage trailer fanatic and luckily Jen & Alex think they’re cool too so we made sure to incorporate the adorable Airstream that New Belgium keeps on site. It was a really fun afternoon and even Harper, their cutie pie half chow half Australian Shepherd dog made the trip up to appear in some of the photos.
I obviously loved the display for the Snapshot beer:)
I just LOVE how their eyes and clothes match the plants so perfectly here. New Belgium has a beautiful overgrown garden at the back of the brewery.
