Calling all newly engaged couples: if you’re wanting romantic engagement photos, I’d recommend blue hour at Guanella Pass in the summertime over and over. This is one of my favorite engagement galleries from Summer 2023 and I can’t wait to share it with y’all!
Laramie + Phoenix’s Romantic Blue Hour Engagement Session at Colorado’s Guanella Mountain Pass
This was my first time shooting at Guanella Pass. Laramie and Phoenix chose it as their location as Phoenix has spent a lot of his free time exploring the mountains of Guanella Pass throughout his life. I love when client’s choose a location that has meaning behind it to really bring more character to their photos.
What is blue hour?
Good ol’ Wikipedia defines blue hour as the period of twilight when the sun is at a significant depth below the horizon + the remaining sunlight takes on a blue shade.
To be completely honest with you, when I first started my photography journey back in 2018 I was afraid of this lighting as it’s much darker than the photographer’s favorite golden hour period. Come 2023 and blue hour is now my favorite lighting to photograph in.
Nothing is more beautiful and romantic than the even moody lighting. I always keep my couples 10 – 15 minutes past the sun setting below the horizon to capture some of my favorite portraits of their whole session.
Testimonial from Laramie + Phoenix
“Megan was quick to make us feel comfortable and not awkward as I hate being in front of a camera. She made us laugh, giggle and was so genuine in getting to know us more to really make the photos scream US. I loved that she also opened up to us to share her story and journey; she truly is an amazing photographer and person. When we got our gallery back I couldn’t help up tear up knowing these amazing photos and memories were going to shared with us being newly weds!“
I’d love to capture your romantic engagement love story against Colorado’s beautiful landscape.
