Lost Gulch Outlook, Boulder Engagement Photos | Boulder PHOTOGRAPHER | THE Lost Gulch Outlook ENGAGEMENT | OSMP ENGAGEMENT | COLORADO MOUNTAIN ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER
People who know me well know I love my sandy beaches, salty water, and the sound of the soothing waves. Ever since I was a little girl I loved timeless ocean. I think my should needs it. And then God gave me the opportunity to spent my last 18 years in Colorado, 20 min away from the most breathtaking views that a human being can imagine. Ever since I have started documenting weddings as a Colorado Mountain wedding photographer, the painterly mountain scenery has grown on me. I am always up for a mountain hike, adventurous, fiercely in love couples like Lucy and Anthony! Lucy found me in Instagram.
These two flew in from New York to have a mountain engagement session here in one of the most breathtaking Trailheads…Yes, please!…You know it’s gonna be a timeless session when you get to spend the day…reliving these timeless moments from elevation a little over 8000 feet…
The morning of it was still snowing in the Foothills area, Lucy texted me picture of the snow covered Evergreen, CO where the couple was doing a walk through their Colorado Wedding Venue for September. That moment I knew I could not wait to see what Boulder weather will bring but trusting my guts we arrived at the Lost Gulch Outlook trailhead knowing that it could be still snowing with temperatures as cool as 40’s. As someone who has summited a number of Colorado’s 13er & 14er mountains, it never ceases to amaze me how breathtaking the view is!

Prior to our engagement shoot, I have research the multiple trail descriptions Colorado Mountains Engagement locations. The internet consensus is that the trail is anywhere from 8.5-12 miles long and is moderate to extremely difficult. Haha. Super helpful. While I did not underestimate such a hike, at least the 1700 ft elevation gain was at least spread out over many miles.
Flagstaff Mountain is a Boulder icon. Right on the edge of town, it is extremely popular to hike up or drive up to the summit.
This brings me to Lucy and Anthony and their engagement story.
