Though the drive from Denver was sunny, the Boulder Flatirons were shrouded in fog for these Chautauqua Park engagement photos. There was a light sprinkling of fresh snow on the red ground and green trees. It was very romantic looking.
These Chautauqua Park engagement photos are the definition of romance, with a light dusting of snow and the moody, foggy Boulder Flatirons.
The iconic Chautauqua Park, right in Boulder, CO, is usually way more packed than we found it on a Sunday afternoon. This was right before coronavirus turned our worlds upside down. Those few days where people were eager to stay at home. Or maybe it was because it was a cloudy day!
Either way, I loved how different Chautauqua Park and the Flatirons looked in the gloom. It made for a beautiful and romantic backdrop. And their clothes worked so well for the setting! (Btw, I send all my couples a style & prep guide to help prepare for their engagement session!)
I loved hiking around the Flatirons with Brian & Lindsay. They were so chill and game for going down the muddier trails. Those trails had fewer people 😉 We started in the well-known Chautauqua Park, but we couldn’t see the peaks so we quickly went into the forested trails.
We explored the trail through the woods and to the base of the Flatirons, then started climbing them. Eventually, the trail turned to ice so we turned back and meandered back to the meadow.
Brian didn’t even break a sweat, despite biking 5 hours (!!) earlier that day. #beastmode
Meeting these two lifetime travelers, outdoors lovers, down-to-earth people, was such a wonderful experience. Having the opportunity to help them create bold & emotional photographs of their love that they will treasure forever is even better.
“Gabby knows how to make her couples feel at ease. She’s authentic, and I think that comes across in her work! She’s willing to go the distance and easily adapts to the situation to capture a great photograph. Gabby helps create memorable moments. We’re grateful for these photographs that capture us and our love!” – Lindsay & Brian
