Mount Falcon Fall Engagement Photos | Mollie & Joey

These two are the absolute sweetest (they brought me an engagement present!!)– truly so kind and thoughtful. I cannot wait to photograph their summer wedding at Della Terra this year!

We decided on Mount Falcon because it is only about 30 minutes outside of Denver. It is such a great Denver engagement photo location because you have gorgeous views of the mountains, all within easy walking distance. You don’t have to worry about trekking up a mountain! (So great for kiddos too!)

Mount Falcon Summer Engagement Photos | Brittany & Jeff

Brittany and Jeff are Colorado natives and have 2 adorable great danes (they will definitely be included in the next photoshoot). For their Mount Falcon engagement photos, we wanted something with gorgeous mountain views, tall grass, but not too far from Denver. Mount Falcon was the perfect spot!

Mount Falcon Fall Engagement Photos | Shannon & Jake

These two were such a joy to photograph, I cannot wait for their Boulder wedding next year! We met up at one of my favorite parks at sunset. I love that it has such gorgeous mountain views without hardly any effort! Then we just spent over an hour frolicking around, hanging out, drinking drinks and just having a great time.

Here are some tips for planning your engagement photos at Mount Falcon.

  1. Choose a location that is sentimental or fits your personality. For Brittany and Jeff, they love to hike this trail with their dogs. So not only was it a gorgeous location, it hold some significance. If you’re not the outdoorsy type, have your engagement photos by Union Station or Downtown Denver. You want your photos to feel authentic!
  2. Polish or clean your ring! It’ll be a focus in your photos, so make sure it’s gleaming!
  3. Make it a date day. Almost all of my couples feel a little anxious about their photoshoot. But make it a date and it’ll take away a lot of the pressure. Have a beer before your session, dress up and have reservations for dinner afterwards.
  4. Wear something you feel comfortable in. So many people buy a brand new outfit that they think will photograph super well. But instead, wear your favorite dress or pair of slacks that you know you look great in. If you’re really wanting to wear something new, purchase your outfit a few weeks before and wear it around the house to make sure it fits well and you can move easily.
  5. Don’t be afraid to get a silly! Shake off all the nerves and just be okay laughing it off. I always prompt my couples to do silly things so they loosen up and can act more natural. If you’re feeling stiff or awkward, it will probably show up in your photos. Take some breathes and just go with the flow.
  6. Check the light. Make sure you’re scheduling your session for the best lighting. If your location is relatively flat, that’ll be early in the morning or about an hour before sunset. But if your in the mountains it gets a little trickier. This is when you should rely on your photographers expertise and knowledge of the specific location. They should know where the sun sets and when it’ll dip behind the mountain.
