Adrienne & Sam reached out to me after seeing my images on Instagram. Having recently moved to Colorado from Ohio, they knew they wanted a spot close to Denver with gorgeous views. After seeing some of my Boulder engagement photos at Lost Gulch Overlook, they knew that was their spot.
We lucked out with the most gorgeous light that day, and had even light everywhere we turned. We also had the place almost to ourselves which is rare for such a popular location! With even light, blue skies and a slew of birds that you’ll see flying throughout the images, we captured over 100 deliverable engagement photos. Adrienne and Sam also brought along a handmade sign they had received as a gift to incorporate into a few of their images.
I am commonly asked for location advice by my engaged couples. The top request is “a good spot with mountain views close to Denver”, and Lost Gulch Overlook is always my top choice due to its proximity to Denver and gorgeous views without a hike. The pitfall is that this is normally a busy place, but if you visit early in the morning or during a weekday, there are significantly fewer people. Some other spots to consider that also fit the bill are; Maxwell Falls Lower Trail in Evergreen, Mt. Falcon Park in Jefferson County and Lookout Mountain in Golden. Bear in mind that most locations in Colorado require a photography permit, including Lost Gulch Overlook. Click here to learn more about the annual permit for OSMP in Boulder.
