Moraine Park Family Photography at Rocky Mountain National Park
I’m so excited to share this fun little session I got to do up in Estes Park last week. Kayla got in touch with me to see if I could come out to Estes Park and photograph her and her boyfriend while she was visiting her brother here in Colorado. I love any chance to head up to Estes and photograph at Rocky Mountain National Park so of course I said yes. And, what was supposed to be just a nice little family session with some couples pictures as well ended up being a bit of an engagement session as well because her boyfriend ended up proposing marriage to her on this trip. I love that Estes Park will always hold a special place in their hearts now that they got engaged here.
On this trip to Rocky Mountain National Park, it was my first time heading into the park since Covid-19 hit the US. I knew that they are requiring reservations to get in prior to 5 pm but since I like to use the pretty evening light, I didn’t think it would be too much of an issue to get in around 6:15 pm. Boy was I wrong. There was a huge line of cars waiting to get in right at 5 pm and even at about 6:20 or 6:30 pm that evening when we got into the line, it took roughly 15 minutes or so to get in. So, if you are someone reading this who is planning to head up to RMNP while they’re doing the reservations, you might want to consider getting a reservation if possible because it’s much more crowded in the evenings these days. Still, we ended up getting in with plenty of time to capture all of these beautiful photos for them and I even like that we found a new spot to use next to the Big Thompson River that I really like and will definitely be using again.
