Piet Mondrain engagement shoot

Artful + Modern Colorado Engagement

Piet Mondrain engagement shoot

I just love how clever and sophisticated this Colorado engagement session is. Denver Destination Wedding Photographers Adam & Imthiaz evoke a classically modern, twentieth century abstract art vibe with this shoot.

The  Piet Mondrian-inspired Composition II in Red, Yellow and Blue backdrop is not the only artful aspect of this photo shoot, we also see a color study in monochromatic blue and a complementary color study with yellow autumn leaves and the couples blue clothes. Brilliant!

In addition to commemorating this new phase in your life, engagement shoots are a delightful way to slow down and enjoy the intensely heady time and often times stressful time. They are also a great way for you to get to know your photographers a bit better and discern whether or not you feel comfortable enough to spend some of the most intimate moments of your wedding day with these people. Finally, it's a great time to make sure your photographers style meshes with your personal aesthetic. You want  your photographer to be able to tell your story through pictures.

I also love the urban landscape pictures, highlighting the architectural details and points of interest in this Colorado city. Adam & Imthiaz so artfully captured.

When I first started blogging about mountain weddings, I imagined a lot of rustic and handmade details. But as I continue to meet mountain brides and wedding professionals online, my mountain wedding worldview has expanded in such delightful ways. I (and I hope you) have re-thought my idea of what a mountain wedding looks like. Yes, mountain weddings (and engagements as it were) can be rustic and outdoorsy and handmade, but they are also modern, funky, glamorous, urbane, artsy, and sophisticated.
