Colorado Mountain Engagement

A list of Colorado Mountain Engagement Locations

  • Boreas Pass
    Boreas Pass

    A few minutes from downtown Breckenridge, Boreas Pass provides a variety of mountain backdrops. We usually always stop at the first cutout as its a quick 2 minute hike to the top of a small, but gnarly nob. Driving further up the road, you’ll find groves of aspen trees, the Bakers Tank Water Tower and eventually above […]

  • Brainard Lake
    Brainard Lake

    While the Brainard Lake Recreation Area is a bit of a drive from the nearest city, Boulder, its well worth it for the views and access to high mountain lakes. From snow thaw to early winter, the road allows you to drive up past Rock Lake. In the winter months, there is a lower parking […]

  • Chautauqua Park
    Chautauqua Park

    A big landmark for Colorado, this is a popular place to go for couples who have a love for Colorado. Located just on the edge of Boulder it is easy to grab a variety of mountain and urban photos. If the Flat Irons aren’t enough of an adventure, you can always continue up the road […]

    Lost Gulch Overlook

    Our pick for one of the best mountain views, closest to the city, Lost Gulch Overlook is a popular spot for engagement photos. When the University of Colorado is in school, this spot will be a bit crowded. During the summer months or school breaks, you might have a better chance at squeezing in some […]

    Rocky Mountain National Park

    National Parks never disappoint, which is why Rocky Mountain National Park is one of our top favorite locations for engagement photography. Just outside of Estes Park, its a quick drive up highway 34 or 36 depending on where you are coming from. Once inside the large park, the options for your engagement photos are endless. […]

  • Sawmill Reservoir
    Sawmill Reservoir

    We consider Sawmill Reservoir a hidden gem in the town of Breckenridge. Hidden just below the ski resort, but close enough to be a 5 minute drive from most any Breckenridge Wedding Venue, Sawmill Reservoir gives you the feeling of being away from the hustle-bustle of downtown Breck without a 4×4 adventure. There are several […]

  • St. Mary’s Glacier
    St. Mary’s Glacier

    If you are looking for snow in August, this is your place. The St. Mary’s Glacier is at the end of a short hike (less than a mile) up to St. Mary’s Lake. During mid to late summer, you’ll find fields of wild flowers and plenty of beautiful Rocky Mountain views. The trail and surounding […]
