The Mining Exchange
A Downtown Colorado Springs Styled Wedding
We loved being a part of this styled shoot originated by Katie Corinne Photography last spring at the Mining Exchange Hotel in downtown Colorado Springs! We got to collaborate with an amazing group of talented local wedding professionals, and spend a lot of time shooting at this gorgeous venue. You may be wondering what in the world is a “styled shoot,” and why we would bother wanting to be a part of it. Styled shoots are often the medium wedding photographers, wedding planners, and other wedding professionals use to try out new ideas or concepts, get their work published in wedding magazines or blogs, and just have fun doing what we love! The details in styled shoots are usually over the top, and since there’s not the usual pressure of time like there is at a real wedding, we can really enjoy all the little details and take time to try shooting differently than we normally do.
We were excited that this shoot was published in COUTUREcolorado Wedding last summer (you can see the feature here), but we wanted to give you even more of a picture of what this day and all its classy details looked like! The vision behind the shoot was to show off the Mining Exchange’s combination of rich history and current modern class – black and white plus metallic, and a little James Bond on the side. If you haven’t ever been there, the Mining Exchange Hotel definitely makes you feel like you’ve stepped into a movie when you walk in. The building was constructed in 1902 by Cripple Creek millionaire Winfield Scott Stratten to promote regional mining companies and their stock. The original gold safe still sits in the main lobby, and much of the original brick can still be seen inside the hotel rooms. It’s definitely worth checking out! Enjoy the styled shoot below.
