Rocky Mountain National Park Engagement Session

Bear Lake Engagement Session

Dream Lake Engagement Session

When my couples say they want to go to Rocky Mountain National Park for their engagement photos, it’s always a good idea!   Some of the best views are just a few hours away.   We chose Dream Lake & Bear Lake which a pretty popular idea, if you are adventurous! Dream Lake is about a mile hike from Bear Lake, it’s all uphill & can have some snow left in the spring and summer months.  So, you better bring your hiking shoes but the views are incredible once you get there!  It’s pretty hard to beat.

In the midst of planning a wedding during a pandemic,  views like this let you relax and be a sense of calm during such a hectic, stressful time.  From the mountain peaks to crystal clear water to vibrant  green trees and even some wildflowers I’d say our engagement session postponement was worth it.  We originally had an April date on our calendar, but Covid hit and we wall know what happened there.   I’d say June was perfect.  The terrain was a little easier and not snow packed, the water was a little less iced over, the temps wasn’t as cold & the colors were a little more vibrant.

I can’t wait for their October wedding this year at Deer Creek Valley Ranch

Xo, Crystal
