I have a very quintessentially beautiful Colorado location near Evergreen Colorado that I like to take clients for their portrait sessions. This area includes a couple Aspen fields and I especially love photographing here in the fall. Autumn foliage in the higher elevations of Colorado can peak in early to mid September, way before people in Denver are even remotely thinking about fall photo sessions with lovely golden yellow aspen leaves.
With my wedding clients Shannon and Mark, we happened to be a a little late for peak fall colors, as the area had recently experienced its first snow in very early October. Snow fall in the high country Rocky Mountains can reach most months of the year. In fact, Denver received a good dump of snow yesterday: May 1st 2013!
What I love about this Aspen field, is that it looks amazing year round, especially with summer wildflowers.
The clouds broke for a few minutes to allow some perfect blue Colorado skies to contrast the Aspen.
For fill light I brought my SaberStrip and placed it on a light stand in a horizontal formation above the couple. The ground was a little muddy from the recent snow, but that did not deter our photo session.
Shannon and Mark loved this location for its Colorado outdoor beauty, as Mark is an avid fly fisher. I felt honored to photograph them in such a pretty Colorado mountain location.
