Photo Ops: Union Station Engagement | Denver

By Season Hurd |

The renovation of Denver’s historic Union Station has been much anticipated. I’m pretty sure they designed it for wedding and engagement photography (never mind those pesky trains). I was so skeptical that the reno wouldn’t amount to much since they “don’t make ’em like that anymore” but I think they actually made something better in this case. A great deal of thought was put into every detail and every corner of the high-profile public space. Just recently I posted another engagement session from this location for the Photo Ops Project so it goes against my norm to do another feature. But I accepted two sessions almost simultaneously because a) They are both just so good that I couldn’t pick and b) I think it’s fantastic just how differently two different artists see the same spaces. Even the few shots that took place at the exact same locations are very differently handled. In this particular case, an expert use of selective focus slightly downplays the architectural details while still hinting at their presence. At the end of the session, the light of day begins to disappear but the session does not end – becoming instead a jumping off point for incredibly artistic and, in some cases, even abstract images. I am yet again so impressed with what the Denver-area photography community can do with one of our home town urban spaces. So please enjoy Katie and Andrew’s Union Station engagement session with brief forays to the adjoining bridges and the big hill at Commons Park (where the sky seems to go on forever).
