Love in the Denver Clock Tower-Sammie & Devon
How many of you have seen the movie National Lampoons European Vacation? I have, many times, and that is because that movie was exactly what it was like going on vacation with my Dad. In the movie, they get stuck on a rotary for hours passing Big Ben and Parliament. Each time they pass it, the dad says, "Hey kids, Big Ben, Parliament!" This is basically what my Dad did every time we passed the Denver Clock Tower, "Hey kids, there's the D&F Tower. That used to be Denver's tallest building." Every. Single. Time. (Fun fact the tower is 20 floors, the current tallest building in Denver is 40 floors) So when the opportunity to shoot inside the tower came about, I did not hesitate to jump in. This shoot was a bucket list location and I was thrilled my first experience seeing it would also be doing my favorite thing, shooting love!! The Denver Clock Tower is an intimate space that would be perfect for an elopement, anniversary session, vow renewal or proposal.
Although Sammie and Devon were models for us, they were also a real-life couple and you could tell they were madly in love. I loved how he watched her get her hair and makeup done and they would smile and laugh. Her face would just light up when she saw him. I'm not really sure Devon even looked away from her unless we asked him to look somewhere else. I could not believe all the talented vendors at this event. Every single one of them blew me out of the water. I have all of their information listed below with links to their websites if you wanted to get in contact with them. And trust me when I tell you, you absolutely should!
This event and venue were absolutely one of a kind. A huge shout out to Ashley Carara of Ashley Nichole Studios, LLC who organized, coordinated and poured her heart and soul into this. Thank you to our models who did anything we asked them to! I feel very lucky to be apart of this. I hope you enjoy the photos and the insight into the elusive Denver Clock Tower as much as I loved absolutely being there!
