If you live in Western Colorado like me, you know that spring is the “mud season” here. So what are the best locations for your photography session during the spring?
Colorado National Monument
Colorado National Monument is the perfect spot if you’re looking for a more scenic and rugged location for your photos.
The towering red rock formations and canyons make for a stunning backdrop, especially during sunrise or sunset. The springtime temperatures are also much milder than the summer, making it a more comfortable and enjoyable experience.
A photo session at Colorado National Monument is perfect for couples who want to capture the raw beauty of nature in their photos.
Telluride, Colorado & Crested Butte, Colorado
You’re not tired of the winter and want to incorporate snow in your photoshoot as well as being in a beautiful town? Telluride & Crested Butte are the perfect locations for you then!
Telluride is a charming mountain town nestled in a box canyon surrounded by towering peaks. The town is picturesque, with historic buildings, charming streets, and a lively arts scene. In the spring, the town starts to come to life after the long winter, and the streets and parks start to bloom with vibrant colors. The surrounding mountains offer endless photo opportunities, from the famous Bridal Veil Falls to the stunning views from the top of the gondola.
Crested Butte is a charming mountain town known for its colorful Victorian buildings and stunning natural surroundings. The town is surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, offering endless spring photo opportunities. The town is a perfect backdrop for photos, with its colorful buildings and charming streets. One of my favorite spots in Crested Butte is up by the ski resort.
There you will have a fantastic view of the mountains and the beautiful snow that will complement the lighting for your photos!
Montrose, Colorado & Grand Junction, Colorado
A town is always a safe bet because we rely on something other than nature. After all, they look the same no matter the time of the year.
Also, both Grand Junction and Montrose boast a rich history, and their charming downtown areas are filled with historic buildings, colorful murals, and unique cultural attractions. These make for a perfect backdrop for your photos, with plenty of character and charm.
The weather in Grand Junction and Montrose is mild and pleasant in the spring, with temperatures ranging from the mid-60s to mid-70s, making it a relaxing and enjoyable time to explore the towns and take some great photos.
