A couple years ago, after a very terrible flight from California to Denver, we arrived to Colorado disheveled, hungry, and a little stressed from the turbulence (okay, mostly it was me who was stressed – Randy just laughs during turbulence. Yes, he’s a weirdo! I guess when you’ve done combat landings in Afghanistan, a little bump and drops in elevation aren’t a big deal anymore on commercial flights. Whateverrrr!). Anyway – when we landed at around 1 in the morning, Randy decided we needed to stay somewhere amazing to relax and grab some late night pizza, and he decided to splurge and rent us a room at the Crawford Hotel in Denver. I remember walking in to Union Station (which is connected to the Crawford) and both of us saying at the same time, “dang, this would be an amazing spot for a shoot!”
Flash forward to just a few days ago: and that dream became a reality!! Solomon and Sharon decided to have their engagement session at Union Station in Denver – I was like oh hell yeah!! WOO HOO!!
It was so much fun, you guys. I loved spending some time with them (plus Sharon’s awesome BFF/sister/maid of honor) walking around Union Station, getting to know them better before their wedding later this summer. They met through mutual friends during college, and became friends first before deciding to start dating. After a few years together, Solomon set up the most romantic engagement story I’ve ever heard. I’ll let Sharon tell you how it went down!
“Solomon had rented a space near the highlands in downtown Denver with a small private rooftop and had kept me busy in the day hanging out with my best friend Deborah from California and her sister Anna. We are all pretty close so I didn’t suspect anything weird going on and my sister, Gina, told me she had to help my parents with work that day. In reality, Solo and my sister had spent the day getting the apartment ready with candles, flowers, and a personalized frame that said our names made by my sister. Deborah and Anna made an excuse for going to the apartment by saying Anna had to meet her friend there to pick up her ID that she had “left behind” another night and that he had a new puppy that we could go meet. So we went into the house and they tricked me into going upstairs where Solo was waiting. He took me to the rooftop and proposed during sunset overlooking the Denver skyline!”
Totally romantic, right?!
I’m so excited for their upcoming wedding later this summer, especially after having so much fun at their engagement session! Here are just a few of my favorites!!!
