Lost Gulch Overlook Engagement | Spring | Boulder
Engagement Photography at 300mm?
Amazing sunsets for the mountains plus some diversity in how you can shoot at the location. Lost Gulch Overlook is certainly an ideal location for those qualities that are hard to get all seasons in Colorado. For Dave and Kate they invited their fur children along. Moe and Charlie did pretty well with the shoot having fun out of the rocks. There was this fear that when you have a couple other names introduced in the shoot that you might mistakenly call the couple by their dog names. Thankfully that did not occur but maybe when it comes to the wedding at Sapphire Point perhaps we will call Dave by Moe or Charlie? The evening lighting was perfect for a shot that is a bit unique where we get the couple set up on some rocks then go shoot a couple hundred feet away across the road up a hillside. When we do this we have the flash up on the rocks by them remotely triggering it and we are shooting on a 300mm prime lens. The result is a background looking closer than it actually is in the photo. The other thing unique about the above image is you will see the sunlight on one side but yet they are not dark on the other due to the flash. Perhaps you didn’t know or notice this cause the flash is not flashy. The main idea is we wanted to highlight the flow the dress with lighting up some blonde hair while pulling in the background and keeping her face lit up so you can see the connection.
