Autumn in Colorado is a photographer’s dream. The trees are changing colors and there is a clean crisp feel of fall in the air. Visitors come from all over the country to experience our golden aspens, dramatic mountain scenery and rustic mining towns, which always contrast nicely with Colorado’s natural ‘gold’. Locals, like myself, are lucky to live just a weekend drive away from these stunning photo opportunities.
Autumn is also a great time for family photography in Colorado – not only because the warm colors can add spice to their portraits, but it allows them to put together a nice package for your relatives during the upcoming holidays.
But mixed in with those are the high school seniors rushing to get their yearbook photos in before the school deadline. You can't blame them either for wanting to wait until the last minute because this is such a nice time of the year to get outdoor photos taken. As an added bonus, it looks like our peak color is hitting a little later than average this year. So there's still time to catch some great scenery in southwestern Colorado, or get some family portraits done in Denver and the front range area while there's still time!
