Best Photography Locations in Boulder, Colorado

Are you hoping to book some family photos while you’re visiting Colorado, or in search of the most gorgeous backdrop for your elopement?
Here are my favorite photo locations in Boulder County!

1) Walden Ponds Wildlife Habitat

If you prefer a less frequented location this may be the place for you! 

This trail beside Boulder Creek is surrounded by cottonwood trees, tall grass, and open fields. 

The Rocky Mountains are visible at a distance, which gives you a glimpse at the taller peeks behind the foothills.

This spot is perfect for small children who need to get some energy out during your session.

This idyllic spot is located up Flagstaff Road just 20 minutes from Boulder’s Pearl Street Mall. 

With views of Longs Peak, Mount Meeker, and the Indian Peeks Wilderness area, the overlook faces West, making it an amazing choice for sunset photos. 

This location is best for couples or small families with older children.

NCAR Trailhead, Boulder

4) NCAR Trailhead

Located in South Boulder, this location offers spectacular views of the Flatirons and Devil’s Thumb. 

These beautiful spots are just a short walk from the parking lot, making it ideal for larger groups, families with little ones, and grandparents.

5) Chautauqua Park

There’s a reason so many of my clients request to have their photos taken here!

This iconic Boulder landmark really is beautiful location whether you need fun & free family photos, or more elegant couples portraits. 

The only downside is the number of other people who frequent this picturesque spot.
