Proposal | Pass Lake
New locations are always a hard find for proposals as we shoot at a distance to get more candid imagery and not interfere in the moment. The balance of a place being natural to go, scenic and not crazy busy is hard to balance with being hidden away. While all this might sound like this spot is a natural winner I think it is not as popular for photos because it is a rough lighting place above treelike up on Loveland Pass. It is really one of those places that works well for the midday lighting as the sunrise will be to one side and the sunset to another side. Most photographers will really struggle in the mid day light but for us with the use of off camera lighting it is very doable if not preferred for this spot. For this shoot we did it around sunset and at the time we shot it is was progressively changing. As you can see the view is pretty epic and we shot on the other side of the lake from the couple. Now all this sounds pretty good so what is the catch? Well as this is above treeline the winter will come early and as you get into winter the accessibly will be a variable.
