When I started chatting with Dani about their engagement session I explained to her that it is a really good opportunity to take some photos that reflect who they are as a couple. A chance to really let their personalities and interests shine through and do something different from the wedding day. As the session got closer she emailed me and said her and Patrick had decided to do a “Bikes and Brews” theme for their session. She said those were both things they really enjoyed together. I loved this idea and don’t think the photos could have turned out any cuter! We started at City Park with some bike photos and then headed to Black Shirt Brewing Co. to end the night. Thank you Patrick and Dani for the beer! That really hit the spot after all the shooting. 🙂
A little background on how these two got together. Dani moved back to CO from AZ in May 2010 and got back in touch with her high school friend Travis. In August he invited her to a BBQ he was hosting at Wash Park but once there Dani quickly realized she didn’t really know anyone. Travis started introducing her around to people, one of which was Patrick. The intro went…”hey Jacox, Dani needs a husband”. From there Dani and Patrick played some bocce ball, had a few too many drinks and he ended up getting her phone number. The first date was a Rockies vs. Dodgers baseball game a week later and the rest is history. They never looked back. And to bring it full circle, Travis will be the officiant for their wedding this August. Patrick and Dani, we can’t wait for the big day which is less than 2 months away!
