Planning for Your Breckenridge Engagement Photos

If you’re early in the wedding planning stages, you can start by having your engagement photos in Breckenridge to give yourselves an idea of what the town has to offer for your wedding. Breckenridge is a great balance of stunning wilderness and a cute mountain town. It’s nice to feel like you’re away in the mountains while still having the convenience and fun of a town.

Sometimes we even start our Breckenridge engagement sessions with a beverage somewhere like the Canteen Tap House. Watch out, their drinks are sure to have you feeling extra confident. From there, there are numerous trails and passes to venture to for stunning mountain views away from the crowds.

Whether you’re getting married in the stunning mountain town or not, Breckenridge engagement photos are a great way to celebrate your love. There are a lot of easy-to-access locations with epic views, as well as some harder-to-access spots if that’s more your thing. Engagement photos are a fun part of the wedding planning process and Breckenridge is a great spot for a memorable kick-off.

Achieving Epic Breckenridge Elopement Photography

Maybe you’re not planning a big mountain wedding but rather an intimate elopement in the Rocky Mountains. The same things that make the town great for engagement photos make it perfect for your Breckenridge elopement photography. Imagine great views, excellent access, and somewhere awesome to celebrate afterward.

What I love about Breckenridge elopements is that there are a lot of great spots to get away for some privacy. But you don’t have to go far from the comfort of the town. It makes for a fun wedding weekend of both love and adventure.

The benefit of an elopement (in this Breckenridge elopement photographer’s opinion) is that there is no time pressure. Therefore, you can make your elopement day schedule all about beauty and light resulting in epic photos. Can you say sunset elopement, anyone?!

Timing for Your Breckenridge Wedding Photography

When it comes to getting the best photography for your Breckenridge weddings it’s all about timing. That means picking the right season and picking the right time of day. Do you want a winter wonderland, fall colors, or summer wildflowers?

From there, we suggest timing things around sunrise or sunset when the light is beautiful and the locations are less crowded. Sometimes the timing of everything is dictated by the wedding venue but the top venues (see below) understand the importance of epic photography. If you’re eloping or have a small guest list, we can help you find a secluded spot, especially if you’re willing to hike a little.

You can even have a winter wedding in Breckenridge as there are great ways to combine snow sports, cozy fireplaces, and whiskey from Breckenridge Distillery.

The Right Spots for Your Wedding Photos

Your photographer will have a deep understanding of the unique lighting conditions, the best angles, and the hidden gems that make Breckenridge so special. They can take you to picturesque locations that perfectly complement your wedding theme and create a visual story that reflects the beauty of the surroundings.

Depending on your wedding venue, there might be great photo locations on site or you might want to plan some time for a first look somewhere special. It’s worth the extra thought towards the timeline. to make the most of your mountain wedding in Summit County.

The Sevens

The Sevens at Breck is another one of my favorite wedding venues due to its location on the ski resort. It’s a smaller venue so a smaller crowd but a picture-perfect place if you always envisioned a ski resort wedding.

Final Tips from these Breckenridge Wedding Photographers

As Colorado mountain wedding photographers we love watching our clients and their guests experience all that Breckenridge has to offer. If you are coming from out of town it’s important to know that a wedding in the Colorado mountains requires you to be prepared. Below are a few final tips to help with your destination wedding in the Rocky Mountains.


Consequently, the weather can change at a moment’s notice so it’s important to dress in layers. Regardless of the time of year, you’ll want to be prepared for seasons to change throughout the day. Have a plan for rain, snow, and sun.


Breckenridge weddings are a choose-your-own-adventure type of thing. If you want, you can stand on a mountain top but you might have to get your dress dirty and bring a change of shoes. Throw some extra hairspray on because it’ll probably be windy up there at your mountain wedding too!


Also, the altitude can cause problems if you don’t remember to drink enough water or drink a little less alcohol than usual. Often, it can be helpful for guests who might have problems with the altitude to arrive early to get adjusted. Give your guests a heads up to be on the lookout for feeling the impacts of altitude.

Beyond the Wedding

There is plenty to do in Breckenridge so bring your hiking shoes, fishing poles, and window shopping skills for the quaint yet vibrant downtown.

One of our best recommendations is to hire a great planner like Erica Sarell or Snapdragons Celebrations to help make sure everything runs smoothly.
