Playful Mountain Engagement Photos in Colorado


Abbey & Mike (and the sweetest boi Bode!) joined us for their playful mountain engagement photos in Colorado! You’ll wanna slow your scroll for these!


Playful Mountain Engagement Photos in Colorado

Abbey reached out just a over month or so before their wedding saying they were considering an engagement session after all. Our response was a resounding: “HECK YES! You need some mountain engagement photos!” She said they trusted us to pick a spot, and we immediately knew where to take them.

Where’s your favorite place in the mountains?

Let’s back up a minute. Abbey & Mike’s gorgeous August wedding day was planned at Piney River Ranch. The views & the vibes there are INCREDIBLE. Second to none. Picking another beautiful location in Colorado that wasn’t dwarfed by Piney was a tall order, but we were up for the challenge.

We met at Hoosier Pass, just south of Breckenridge, for their mountain engagement photos in Colorado!

Hoosier one of our local-to-us favorite spots. It’s an easy hike up to get gorgeous views of Quandary Peak to the Summit side and Mount Lincoln to the Park side. It’s typically very quiet and the perfect spot for a variety of vibes – mountain views, wooded trees, Montgomery Reservoir in the distance – you can get it all!

It was also important to choose a spot they could bring their best boy, Bode. Hoosier is dog friendly (just make sure you pick up your pup’s waste & pack it back out!).

Can we all agree Bode stole the show?

He was the sweetest and most well-behaved. Scroll to see the engagement ring on his nose! Fluffy pup aside, I just need to share that Abbey is very likely the most joy-filled person I’ve ever met. Being in her presence can perk up any bad mood. It was truly an honor to photograph a bit of her & Mike’s love story. Take a look!

Let’s schedule your engagement session!

Family Photos in Breckenridge | The Huber Family


Are you planning a family trip to the mountains? It’s the perfect time to schedule your family photos in Breckenridge!


family photos in Breckenridge

Since becoming parents, we’ve realized even more the importance of documenting all of life’s fleeting moments. Photographing families has become something so special to me, so when my college friend, Mel, reached out and asked about scheduling family photos in Breckenridge during their summer vacation, I was elated!

We met in the mountains with the plan to dance & play, and if everyone happened to look at the camera at the same time, great. If not, maybe even better. 🙂

We believe your family photos should be real. They should feel a little chaotic, too – because that’s life, isn’t it?

We captured bows & tiny toes. There were some tears & even more giggles. The wind blew our hair & gave us goosebumps on our arms. We saw mountain goats & waterfalls & found some really great rocks.

That’s it. And that’s enough.

How to Take Amazing Engagement Photos


After you get engaged, it’s easy to wonder: how do we make sure we take amazing engagement photos? We’re sharing 5 easy tips to help!


amazing engagement photos

You’re officially engaged & eye-balls deep in your wedding planning. You might be thinking about scheduling engagement photos (you totally should – here’s why!). But first…

So, how do you take amazing engagement photos?

There’s no one answer to this. But, luckily, there are some things to consider that can help!

Here’s what to keep in mind to make sure you get amazing engagement photos!

  • Location. This isn’t everything, but it’s a great place to start. Talk with your photographer about your vision – they’ll surely have some beautiful recommendations for you.
  • Which brings us to: choosing the right photographer! Research photographers. Look at their public reviews & style (websites & social media are great for this!) – you can even ask to see full galleries. If you love their style, reach out to see if you love them! You want to feel comfortable & have fun together. You’ll know quickly if you vibe! Maybe this will help.
  • Attitude! Show up ready to play. To laugh, to cuddle, to HAVE FUN. That’s the whole point of your engagement session, after all – to have fun. If you can shake off the nerves and just let yourselves be together, you’ll get amazing engagement photos!
  • Plan something special! What do you love to do together? Include it in your engagement session! Your favorite board game, a stop for beers, a small picnic, your beloved Jeep. Whatever it is, make it you!
  • Finally – get amazing engagement photos! It’s really as simple as that. When all the pieces come together, it’s a beautiful thing!

Does this help?

Let’s review:

1. pick the right photographer

2. let them help you pick the perfect location

3. show up ready to have fun

4. make it personal

5. get amazing engagement photos!

We are SO EXCITED for Annika & Luke’s Breckenridge wedding day next summer. We’re headed back to the gorgeous Ten Mile Station & partnering with the incomparable Distinctive Mountain Events. Lucky us.

The Family Focused Wedding of Maggie & Chris


No code red fire danger or dust ground funnels could stop me from getting to Maggie + Chris’ gorgeous family focused wedding in Del Norte, Colorado!


Family focused Wedding in Colorado by Basecamp Visual

Maggie + Chris knew exactly how they wanted to celebrate – with a relaxed, intimate, family focused wedding in a place so dear to their hearts, Del Norte, Colorado.

Their early May wedding wasn’t without a little stress – but, no code red fire danger or dust ground funnels could stop me from getting there! When I say I drove through actual dust tornados, I mean it! It was SO windy! But somehow, through the magic of a Colorado wedding day, once I arrived in Del Norte, the wind calmed & the air cleared.

It set the tone for the most perfect day.

When Maggie first reached out, she mentioned they’d be celebrating at her family’s “basecamp”, Wayforward Adventures. Of course, the minute we read Basecamp, we knew it had to be fate. A match made in wedding photographer + soon-to-be-married-couple heaven!

It was such an honor to witness the joy of this family focused wedding day. Everyone there, as Maggie so sweetly shared, “vibes together” – and that couldn’t have been more true! Her son played pool with the guys, her sister, mom, and sweet niece helped her get dressed. Best friends, dear family – it was a true celebration of love.

I hope you enjoy these gorgeous photos of Maggie & Chris’ family focused wedding day!

Breckenridge Wedding at Sevens in the Fall


Rachael & Kevin’s beautiful fall Breckenridge wedding at Sevens showcases just how beautiful Colorado is when the leaves start changing.


Rachael & Kevin’s beautiful fall Breckenridge wedding at Sevens Restaurant was a showstopper! We joined the amazing Kayle & her team at Petal & Bean; the design – the colors, the details – was a perfect fit for this beautiful day. The slopes, a place so important to Rachael & Kevin, served as the backdrop.

Is there anywhere better than Colorado in the fall?

We probably say this about every single season here, but wow – fall is sure something special. These glorious 4-6ish weeks of vibrant color and cool mornings & warm days are incredible.

Rachael & Kevin wanted to share this beautiful place, one that is so special to them, with their friends & family. It was a gorgeous wedding day!

What is this crazy life?

Calling the mountains our home has been a dream come true. Being chosen to be witness to and document such important, spectacular days in your lives in this place we call home is a dream we didn’t even realize we had.

We’re so thrilled to share this beautiful fall Breckenridge wedding at Sevens with you!

Beautiful details by the amazing Petal & Bean team, and countless amazing moments ahead. We hope you love them!
