The colors are changing, the scarfs are out, and pumpkins have been placed on your front porch. No matter where you look, fall is in full swing. It’s a special time year and if you and your husband-to-be are looking to snap some engagement photos, now is the time!Autumn backdrops are home to some of the greatest engagement shoots. Luckily for us, Denver and the mountains in our backyard also house some spectacular sceneries. Between the bright yellow Aspen leaves and our gorgeous city parks, posing in the great outdoors has never been made easier. In Colorado this is a magical and beautiful time of year.
There is nothing more romantic or raw than capturing a photograph of a couple strolling on a brisk October day or snuggling up in a picnic blanket. The options for an Autumn engagement shoot are endless. Go on a hike, take your dog for a walk, or even jump in a pile of amber and gold leaves; a natural and comfortable setting always results in breathtaking snapshots.
