Whiskey Distillery Engagement Session | Denver Wedding Photographer

Happy #weddingwednesday!

I am so excited to share Liv + Nick's engagement session! Liv contacted me a few weeks after Nick proposed and I was so excited to hear from her. You see, I met Liv at Hannah and Ryan's wedding last Summer, you can see their wedding here. I had a suspicion that Nick was going to pop the question soon and I was hoping they would contact me. When Liv reached out, I was ecstatic and even more so when they told me they wanted to do an engagement session at Stranahan's Distillery. You might be wondering, "Why Stranahan's?" Well, Liv and Nick had their first date at the Distillery and later, Nick planned an amazing proposal at Stranahan's complete with close family and friends and an engraved bottle of Stranahan's Whiskey asking if Liv would marry him. Pretty dang romantic if you ask me!

Here are my favorites from the engagement session.

Liv + Nick were a little nervous, but nothing a little whiskey couldn't change!

I loved being able to move barrels around and use them as props. It was so fun and created some really unique and fun photos!

Liv + Nick wanted to have some of their engagement photos with their pup, "Ranger." He is a pretty sweet puppy and I was happy to find somewhere close to make that happen.
