Wedding Wednesday ~ Engagement Photos

At the end of June we had our official engagement photos.  And honestly I feel so blessed to have such a photographic city.  I went back and forth about doing pictures at either Red Rocks or Downtown.  I went with Downtown because I feel that represents us more as a couple.  Fun, unique, urban.  We met our photographer Molly McGannon and it was the perfect setting for us to get to know each other better as she'll be shooting our upcoming wedding in just 37 days!!!

This seems to be every one's favorite.  @ Millennium Bridge at the very west point of the 16th Street Mall

A lot of the areas we shot at are right next to where I work.  The building I work in is technically two buildings built together.  In this photo we are right outside the other building.

This one is one of my favorites.  Right next to where I work is this big yellow wall. 

This is another favorite, because it is just us.  Plus I like to think that Chris and I are a very fashion forward couple (Chris more than me) and this one shows our style.  I love the pop of his orange paisley tie.

Love my ring.

Right across the street from where I work is the Denver Performing Arts Center.  This picture was taken right in front of one of the door ways to the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.

Also taken at the DPAC.

Another DPAC pic
We got lots more, but those are some highlights.  I remember this day, and the weather being perfect.  We've had an extremely hot summer (62 days and counting of 90+ degrees).  We met right when it would have been the hottest time of day (afternoon going into early evening) and I think it was only in the 80's.  It could have been so uncomfortable had it been in the 90's. 
Thanks so much Molly for your fun photographic talent!  We can't wait to work with you again!
Things are definitely slowing down and I have gotten out of my funk from the previous week.  I physically have 20 journals made!, however they are still not finished.  I still need to attach the pens to the books, and put pictures on the back (each journal will have a different picture of us, we're alternating between the engagement photos and regular everyday life photos).  Once I do that the journals will be completely done! 
We're getting closer and closer to a final headcount (deadline to return RSVP's is 9/1).  Starting after Labor Day we'll be hunting people down who haven't responded.

I am a total green-eyed monster when it comes to your ring. I WANT it. I love that picture of your ring with you guys in the background! They're all so pretty.
