Engagement Portrait During Summertime at Denver Botanic Gardens

June 27, 2022

Denver Botanic Gardens Engagement Photos

Today I get to share another derby gal’s engagement photos! Nicole and Ethan met through the ska music scene here in Colorado and they’ll be getting married this fall. They decided to take advantage of the fact that I bought the annual permit for Denver Botanic Gardens this year so we met up there for these gorgeous photos. Originally we were going to do them in May, but then we had that late snowstorm and I wanted the gardens to have a bit of time to recover so that they would look their best. And boy, did this location deliver yet again. The gorgeous gardens paired with Nicole’s dramatic black sparkly dress looked so good!  I particularly loved that we were able to get a pretty matching sunset with the Chihuly sculpture and I also loved that we found some awesome purple flower beds to go with Nicole’s purple hair!  Below are only a tiny fraction of the cool photos we were able to catch for them that evening.
