Lost Gulch Engagement Session – Kira & Eddie

Downtown Denver engagement sessions are some of my favorite, and Monica and Eddie’s engagement session was no exception! Except, maybe it was even better than most because they included their dogs!! I’m such an animal person, and I love dogs, so I LOOOOOVE it when my clients include their fur babies and I get to […]
