A Spring Engagement Session in Rocky Mountain National Park, Featuring Tennis with a View

Rocky Mountain Engagement Photos

Rocky Mountain National Park engagement photos are a popular choice and for good reason. Rocky Mountain National Park has lakes, streams, 14,000 ft. peaks, and 12,000 ft. roads full of hidden gems to explore. I’m showcasing Alice + Claytons’ engagement session today at the beautiful, Moraine Park. Moraine Park is one of my favorite locations for sweeping views of some of the peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park, while also having room to frolic with your best friend beside a beautiful stream that snakes through the valley.

Although I’m typically a fan of sunset or sunrise engagement sessions, with spectacular views in either direction, you can basically shoot here at Moraine Park any time of day.

Moraine Park Engagement Sessions

A perk–Moraine Park is a gorgeous spot typically very low on crowds, something that’s hard to find in this beautiful national park. Unless we’re talking about elk, which loves to graze in this space, as you’ll notice in Alice + Clayton’s engagement photos. 😉

I documented their engagement session at the end of May, a great time for generally good weather in the park. The Springtime in Rocky Mountain National Park can be cloudy at times, which means you might want to bring a jacket for in-between photos. Colorado weather, especially at higher elevations, can quickly turn in either direction though so it’s important to be prepared for any sort of weather.

I loved the classic, slightly 60s vibes of their engagement session. Combining the moodiness of the clouds hovering over the peaks and their love for each other, the mountain views made for a great backdrop for romantic engagement photos during the entire session.

After Moraine Park, we scampered our way over to the YMCA of the Rockies to play Alice and Clayton’s favorite sport, tennis, combining class and playfulness all in one. And let me tell you, the views at this tennis court did not disappoint.

Vintage Engagement Photo Session

Alice had picked out the cutest tennis outfits for them, sticking with the vintage vibes. Coupled with shooting this session completely on film, it was so much fun shooting some couples’ tennis photos with these two.

I’m always looking for another excuse to head up to Rocky Mountain National Park and explore the different scenery some more. If you’re into film, an adventure, and candid photos with your partner, reach out here. Less than a 2-hour drive away from Denver and endless location options, Rocky Mountain National Park makes for the most stellar place for an engagement photo session.
