Colorado is a rather photogenic state. We have the beautiful Rocky Mountains, 300 days of sunshine, and clear blue skies. The whole state is an Instagram waiting to happen. Whether you live here, love it here, or are visiting, below are some of the best Insta backdrops.
The Denver Flea is a goldmine. You have jewelry designers, shoe makers, carpenters, boutiques, and tons of great photo opportunities. You can do all your shopping in one (or two) days. The Spring Flea is happening soon so grab your friends and be prepared to find some amazing things and take some good pics along the way!

2a) Favorite Colorado Brand: Heather&Hide
A good purse can make or break your day. Luckily my Heather&Hide makes my day, every day! Not only is it the best purse I've ever had, but it is also ridiculously photogenic. It also looks good with everything. My Heather&Hide is the focal point of a many of my pictures and can you blame me?! It looks beautiful with Downtown Denver in the background.

3&4) Best Place to Eat & Grab a Drink: Linger
Nestled in the Highlands and housed in the old Olinger Mortuary is probably one of the best restaurants in Denver, Linger. Its menus draws inspiration from street food from across the globe and the small bites are perfect to share with a friend (or not). It has good drinks, great food, and is right next to Little Man Ice Cream, the perfect place to get dessert and take awesome photos!

BONUS) Best Place to Work Out: Red Rocks Amphitheater
If you live in Colorado you know that Red Rocks is the best place to see a concert. The sound is amazing and most bands who play there are just as blown away by the energy as you are. Not only is Red Rocks a concert goer's dream, but it's also a work out fanatics playground. Why go to a gym when you can run, jump, or lunge up the stairs? It's a great place to see concerts, work out at, admire the moon... and take pictures!
