Colorado Mountain Proposal Photography
This Colorado mountain proposal on Flagstaff Mountain the week of Valentine’s Day was so stupid gorgeous.
They were traveling from Florida, and jeez, what a contrast, these beautiful Floridians standing atop the snowy Lost Gulch Lookout just above Boulder, CO.
When in Colorado, do as Coloradoans do, eh?
If you’re looking to do a mountain proposal, the Lost Gulch Lookout is a pretty neat place.
The view is amazing.
I mean, just look at that.
It was breathtaking, and not just because of the cold winds.
And it was 100% worth the cold to get these photos.
We all seemed to forget about the cold as we were just too excited about the recent engagement.
But here are a few tips if you’re looking to check out Lost Gulch.
1. Be respectful
It always needs to be said. We love these types of moments in nature that are still preserved this way. Please please please be respectful of the place. Pack out what you pack in. Don’t leave any trash.
2. Bring $5!
At least, it was $5 when we went. Pay for the permit to be in the park. The money (hopefully) goes to keeping the place special for generations to come, so it’s worth it.
3. Drive carefully
The road up is windy and steep (it’s a mountain road, what do you expect?). Bring chains if it’s snowing. Follow all the posted rules. They’re rules for a reason. Here’s a bit more about the Flagstaff Mountain spot on Tripadvisor.
4. Take only photos. Leave only Footprints
We’re serious about this. We love being able to use these spots for photos, as photographers, but it’s so important that if you’re up there as a photographer, tourist, or local, you are respectful of the space and those around you.
And take lots of photos. Because hot damn, that’s gorgeous.
