Wedding Wednesday: Engagement Photos

**Wedding Wednesday is a feature on my blog documenting our wedding planning process – thoughts, reflections, ideas, milestones. Follow along as we plan a wedding in our home city of Cincinnati while we live in Denver.

A few weekends ago, Alex and I met our wonderful engagement photographers, J-K Photography, at Washington Park on a Saturday morning in Denver for our engagement photos!


It was a beautiful morning in Denver – sunny, slightly cool and surprisingly, with no one at one of the most popular parks in Denver. Our original engagement photo session was supposed be the following evening but the forecast called for cold rain and snow. When Jeanette and Kathi generously offered to reschedule our photos, we jumped on it.


We had a great time with Jeanette and Kathi – they were so fun and came equipped with so many ideas and props for us. This chalkboard was a GREAT idea!


I brought 2 different outfits to wear, one more ‘dressy’, one more casual – Alex opted to wear the same one. I wore my casual outfit for a majority of the photos but changed toward the end.


Fun fact: these are the outfits we wore the night we celebrated our engagement!

We used the chalkboard to write a Thank You note – I anticipate using one of the Thank You photos for our wedding thank you cards… If I am feeling crafty enough to make my own card. (Where/how do you do this? Any tips?!)

More photos here.

Taking these photos in Denver was really important to us – it represents the Us as we are now.

If anyone is looking for a very reasonably priced photo session in Denver, I cannot recommend J-K Photography enough. So fun and easy to work with, amazingly fast turn around (and in person delivery of our photo disks!), full rights to our photos and a super cute DVD case!

Now to decide which one to print and frame!

  1. One of my friends used Costco to create hers and they looked great. I think she got around 50 cards for ~$15. You can also order them through Apple but they will be more expensive and there are many sites online. Hope this helps–your pictures are gorgeous!

  2. LG you and Alex are cuties! I made our thank yous on snapfish using our pictures! I hope you got one! 😉

  3. Gorgeous photos!! I really like your nailpolish, also, haha, in the second photo :)

    I think the thank you note idea is super cute!! I have made cards from photos through snapfish and vista print. You can often find discount codes for vistaprint online. Both are super easy!!

    • Great ida with VistaPrint – I’ve made calendars through them before but hadn’t thought of cards, too! Snapfish seems to be a popular system too – will check them out!

  4. Your pics are super cute! I used Shutterfly for both making cards and books for family after the wedding and posted our wedding pics we really liked there. They had an option to invite people to see our pics and purchase them which saved us a huge headache of having to put together a photo order and keep it straight.

    • Thanks Rochelle!! I really want to do a book, post-wedding, I think. I’ll definitely look into Shutterfly! I also like that if we upload photos – people can buy their own – definitely less stressful!:)

  5. You guys are so cute!! We wore jeans for our session too because we also wanted a good representation of us at the time. I made an iPhoto book and gave it for our first anniversary because it is paper.
