A Table for Two~ Denver Outdoor Styled Engagement Photography~ Lakewood, CO
Hazy and Kody are just too damn good looking and cute. Stop it.
Really though….I love these two already! I am super psyched to get to shoot their Wedding this summer as well! It will be gorgeous and full of cute little details I know…because Hazy seems to have a great knack for coming up with cute ideas!
For their engagement session, she really wanted to do a little bit of a styled shoot to start– and the “table for two” idea was born! “I instantly fell in love with the idea of creating a special moment that could be caught on camera. From that point forward I began my quest in creating my own little “table for two.” — Said Hazy.
Well done! Of course, after our little set up– we walked around Belmar Park lake near the Lakewood Heritage Center (one of my favorite places for sessions!)– and stuck it out until the gorgeous sunset! We had a lot of fun! thanks you two! Can’t wait for the big day!
Here is where she got her cute details!
Rental place- I rented the Items from Vintage Rentals in Denver, Colorado. Vintagerentalsdenver.com. The company is a very small locally owned business in Denver.
Florist- I gathered the flowers from Whole Foods flower section and added some sprigs of wheat that grew near our house to add some fall flair.
Food- I chose macaroons based on a similar photo shoot I had seen of a surprise engagement. The figs I chose for their earthy color and I loved how they complimented the blush cake stand I set them on. I also chose champagne, to get the feeling that we were celebrating a special day and moment.
your dress?- I found my dress at Nordstroms for $58.00. At I first I paired it with a blue turquoise necklace and then later changed to a long strand of pearls double wrapped. I also wore nude colored shoes. I was going for a vintage and classy, but simple feel with the lace and pearls.
all the deco you brought- For the shoot I rented two vintage grey dining chairs, a cocktail table from Butler rents, mismatched vintage plates and champagne glasses, a depression glass cake stand, a quart blue mason jar and dessert forks (all from Vintage Rentals). I also used a large grey sheet as the tablecloth for the table. I wanted the table covering to be big enough to tuck in on the bottom of the table so that it had a fluffy feel to it. A bed sheet worked perfectly! For our save-the-date bottle we found a neat Segura bottle at a large liquor store near us. We wrote on the bottle with a Chalk Marker ( I think that is what it is called). I originally had planned on writing the dates on champagne corks, but it did not turn out they way I envisioned so I decided to write directly on the champagne bottle. We have now placed the champagne bottle in a special place…and who knows, maybe it will last until our one year anniversary.
