With its scenic trails and panoramic viewpoints, Maroon Bells offers endless opportunities for couples and their photographers to explore and discover intimate spots for capturing candid and romantic Aspen engagement photos.

Take a weekend to hop aboard a gondola and hike Aspen Mountain for a fun engagement session. If hiking is not your thing, we can travel to downtown Aspen and toast wine to your nuptials at Hotel Jerome before your Aspen engagement session.

No matter if the twin peaks of Maroon Bells are more your style or if you prefer a casual shoot downtown, the vendor you hire for your wedding and engagement photos will have the expertise needed to help you capture the best light as well as the best moments to showcase you and your partner’s love in Aspen, Colorado.
