Rocky Mountain National Park Engagement Shoot
Man, this Rocky Mountain National Park Engagement Shoot was amazing. I mean, what’s not to love right? Beautiful scenery with a fun (and stylish) couple, can’t ask for more than that. In doing some research, I learned that Enos Mills was the driving force behind the creation of the Rocky Mountain National Park. I am so thankful for people like him and John Muir that rallied to protect these lands, so that we can experience their beauty today! They are all such enchanting places. These epic locations never disappoint and leave you with a unforgettable memory of awe-inspiring locations.
Brett and I love the outdoors, so we are naturally drawn to amazing outdoor locations. Whether were dreaming up a photo shoot or looking for someplace to vacation, we seem to end up in beautiful places. When we were planning Nick and Halle’s engagement shoot, we talked about various locations. Since Nick and Halle are having a beach wedding, they were really hoping for a different landscape for their engagement shoot. Since they live near Rocky Mountain National Park, they were thrilled with the idea. We were so excited to shoot in one of the most dramatic mountain ranges in the US, Brett and I bought our plane tickets right away!
This was Brett and I’s first time in Rocky Mountain National Park, but we were thankfully guided by Nick and Halle as they had been there before. Nick had narrowed down and mapped out some great locations for photos. We were thankful for this as the park is vast, and the options overwhelming, haha! But really anywhere in the park is beautiful and fantastic for photos. We didn’t get to have our highly anticipated moose sighting but we did get to see some deer. The park is filled with meadows, streams and jagged mountain tops. As you drive further up the mountain, the view is breath taking as you realize the grandiosity of the mountain range.
We stayed in Boulder for the duration of the trip, which is about 1 hour and 15 minutes from the entrance of the park. Estes park is much closer to the entrance and a great option of you are looking for a smaller city. Summertime was a great time to go as there is more access around the park. We drove all the way up to >>>>> with an elevation of about 15,000 feet, which is not available other times of the year. During winter seasons, some roads are closed due to weather and snow which is understandable. But…I would still love to see that place covered in snow.
If you have never been, you absolutely have to go! Hopefully this Rocky Mountain National Park Engagement Shoot shows you a little slice of its beauty and tides you over until you can make the adventure yourself!
Isn’t this the most rad view? So breathtaking! You should totally venture here if you are ever in Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park. I must warn though, this overlook is quite high in elevation, so it is usually only open during the summer months when there is no snow on the mountain. We were so lucky to have accessed this epic location and right as the sun was setting! It’s called Forest Canyon Overlook!
