80’s Wedding Dress, Pizza and Disco Engagement Shoot in Denver



Read More   →

Photography has been a major part of my life since the wee age of 16. I’ve discovered that the most authentic and beautiful photographs are those that center around big, beautiful, genuine love! I thrive on diving into the experience of the love between you, your partner and your family’s (whatever that looks like for you!) and capturing those moments in true, natural, and candid ways to ensure authenticity in the imagery. 

I’m Simone

Hanna & Joe came are a wedding client of mine that came to me STOKED on making amazing imagery for their engagement session. Joe was a photographer himself, so he had a very specific vision for their shoot: his fiance, Hanna, would wear her mothers 80s wedding dress and they would dress up and play around at a bar they love – The 715 Club! They wanted their shoot to be fun, neon, and FILLED with flash. I couldn’t resist saying YES! 

We met up at the 715 Club in Denver where Joe & Hanna had gotten a drink at the bar. If you are someone who’s into alcohol or weed, I’m all about you having a little drink/puff before our engagement shoot to just relax a bit. It can be scary in front of the camera! Although, these two absolutely crushed the direction I gave them and put a spin on the poses I suggested and truly did their own thing to show their love. Regardless, if you need a lil help form substances, I’m all for it. Just don’t get plastered and we are GOOD! 

After their drinks, we started outside across the street just to capitalize on the nice lighting we had. 

We then popped back into the 715 Club and got these two dressed to impress. Inside the 715 is a disco ball and an old photo booth. We took advantage of both of these bad babies while we waited for the pizza to be cooked! 

We also made good use of 715’s sick martini glass sign out front and the setting sun. 

When pizza was ready, we popped out back (715 has a patio with a pizza bar! so rad) and went to finish up our shoot with some lovely pizza eating, feeding, and smiles! 

If you’re looking for a different kind of shoot, talking with your photographer is absolutely a collaboration I recommend! We are open to creative ideas and making them come to life. I’m so happy I got to work with these two!
