Boulder Engagement Photographer | Eldorado Springs Romantic Portraits

Boulder Engagement Photos at South Mesa Trail During Summer

I have a bunch of gorgeous Boulder engagement photos to share on the journal today. You may remember an old journal entry from last December when my little brother in law proposed to his girlfriend Lauren at the Blossoms of Light holiday display at Denver Botanic Gardens. (CLICK THIS LINK to refresh your memory of their pretty little proposal photo session!) They are getting married on Valentine’s Day at the Highlands Ranch Mansion and we were finally able to make their engagement photos happen over the weekend. They look so beautiful in these and I loved their cute outfit change too!

Earlier in the year I discovered a beautiful location just outside of Eldorado Springs on the south side of Boulder called the South Mesa Trail. We decided to go there to get a beautiful view of those Boulder mountains. Brandon and Lauren are such a good looking couple it would have been impossible not to get good photos, but I am still loving how they turned out. What I really like about this location is all of the beautiful fields of tall grasses, the pretty blue mountain stream of the South Boulder Creek, and the mature apple trees in the tiny apple orchard area. It also has those epic rugged purple mountains in the backdrop that scream that “We’re in Boulder.” This is one of my top favorite destinations for Boulder engagement photos. Check out all of my favorites from their session below!

I love so many of the photos that I don’t think I have a favorite this time. But I just love their expressions in this one so I saved it for last:)
