If you wanted a bit of variety but didn’t want to go too far, I can think of 3 places you could hit in a day, in Golden. The Clear Creek History Park, downtown, would be cool and rustic and there’s the creek right next to it, too. Then there’s the RR museum, also in Golden, which could be cool–lots of old train engines for interesting, unusual shots. And finally, red rocks—-’nuff said.
And actually, then you could head out to Golden Gate Canyon State Park for true hikig/mtn shots. The first 3 destinations are all within 10-15 minutes of each other, and GG State Park is about 30 minutes up the canyon.

I don’t know if you’ve already had your pictures taken yet, but we did ours at Confluence Park/REI and the area right behind REI. It was a great place to have a mixture of nature shots mixed in with some really cool buildings around the area. We loved the spot!

Falfie, that sounds like a neat idea! I definitely want both urban and nature shots for our engagement photos. We took a couple casual shots up near Nederland last weekend & I definitely want to do more of our pics with nature!

Well, the Front Range was the definite poll winner, so here’s what we’re thinking:
- A quick stop at Pike’s Peak to get some beautiful mountain shots & some with the Denver skyline in the distance (a la Mrs Cookie’s Red Rocks Engagement Shoot)
- Then on to Garden of the Gods for some pics with the stunning backgrounds
- To top off a long day of driving, hiking, and photos, we will head to Seven Lakes to take some pictures in front of the incredible waterfalls
We are shooting for August 29th-30th for the little adventure. I want to ensure I have plenty of time to create my Save the Dates!
Thanks for everyone’s help & input!
