Winter Photo Locations : Colorado

Updated: Feb 24, 2023

I have spent YEARS hiking to the most amazing locations in Colorado both for fun and for work. Now I have compiled all of my knowledge into one blog post about best locations for your engagement shoot.

Top 4 Locations in Colorado:

2. Birch Ruins | Estes Park, Colorado

3. Flatiron Mountains | Boulder, Colorado


Sapphire Point | Breckenridge, CO

I love Breckenridge, so of course Sapphire Point made the list. I love this spot because it's super accessible. Gorgeous mountain views steps away from your car is a huge deal, especially if there is anyone with mobility restrictions involved. It's also great locations to pair with a second stop since its so easy to get to. On this particular shoot we paired it with a stop at The Lodge at Breckenridge, which had special meaning to this couple.

Birch Ruins | Estes Park, CO

Estes Park is the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park but the town of Estes Park is often overlooked in a rush to get into the park. Don't get me wrong there are SOO many awesome spots in Rocky Mountain National Park (mirror lake, lily lake, the list goes on!) but I chose this spot at Birch Ruin because of a combinations of reasons:

1. Right in town, literally I parked right next to the police station

2. Epic Mountain Views

3. Short Walk (less than 1 mile loop)

4. Perfect view of the Stanley Hotel from The Shining (and other movies)

5. Awesome Old Ruins

6. Did not have to pay to enter the National Park

Flatiron Mountains | Boulder, CO

The Flatiron Mountains are one of a kind. With several different trails right around here I've got ideas for adventure hikes with rewarding views or spots like the one below, which is a short walk from the parking lot.

Lake Dillon | Frisco, CO

Out in the middle of the lake in the winter or on the shores or in kayaks in the summer, you can't go wrong with Lake Dillon. The gorgeous mountain views in every direction and the easy to access shores with paved parking lots are hard to beat. Imagine a row of chairs for your wedding ceremony next to a lake in the mountains only 1.5-2 hours away from Denver.
