What Month is Best for Engagement Photos in the Mountains

After you decide you wanna get married, you may be asking yourselves: what month is best for engagement photos in the mountains? We’ve got the answer.

What Month is Best for Engagement Photos?

You’ve just decided to say “I do” and now it’s time to schedule with your favorite Colorado engagement photographer – YAY!

So, what month is best?

There’s no one answer to this. Colorado is beautiful 12 months out of the year, so you can’t go wrong with whatever you choose!

A few things to ask yourselves when picking the best month for engagement photos:

  • What do we want to do? This may answer your question for you. If you want to snow-shoe, let’s look at February or March! If you want to have picnic in a meadow, July or August would be rad. If you’d love to dance in the rain, June is a great bet.
  • Do we enjoy snow? If the answer is a resounding “nope”, stay away from October – May.
  • What do we want to wear? If you don’t feel like bundling up, look at June – September. But keep in mind, Colorado can give ya snow & cold weather in the mountains anytime.
  • When is our wedding? For some, it’s fun to have engagement photos from a different season than their wedding. Having a July wedding? Let’s do a winter engagement session. Getting married in March? Let’s catch the last of the fall color in early October.

Does that help?

BUT, because you’re here for an actual answer, let’s talk about August & September. Two of our most popular months of the year – and for good reason! The golden light illuminates the mountains & wild grasses; the weather is normally warm with minimal chance for heavy rain or snow. It’s everyone’s favorite time of year, and ours, too!

We met up with Brittney & Nick in early September, and their session sealed the deal for me. When you ask us what month is best for engagement photos in the mountains we’ll say: August & September!

Here’s why.
