Top Four Scenic Colorado Backdrops

This gallery highlights some of my all-time favorite scenic Colorado backdrops that I’ve captured.

It’s hard to believe that I have lived in Colorado for six years. In 2015, I traded the bitter cold Wisconsin winters for the beautiful Rocky Mountains. And while there are still so many places I’d like to visit, there is some breathtaking Colorado scenery that I go back to see year after year. Admittedly, I sometimes I worry that the photos I share on my feed are redundant … but they’re too beautiful to keep to myself! Plus, I hope these scenic Colorado backdrops inspire you to join me on a photo shoot some day!

As we wait for the leaves to peak this fall, take a look at these scenic Colorado backdrops that you won’t want to miss.


Boreas Pass, Breckenridge, Colorado | September 2019

Talk about a view! Although the drive up is a bit bumpy (an all-wheel-drive car is recommended), it’s completely worth it.

Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs | August, 2020

Steve and Sandy of Denver are a hardworking, loving couple who wanted a weekend getaway close to home. Because they’ve visited Colorado Springs often, they decided to take a long weekend at the Broadmoor Hotel. There they got to enjoy incredible dining, gorgeous afternoons at the pool, time to play golf and tennis, and cocktails at sunset. Before sunset, we ventured out in a private golf cart and found some beautiful spots on a bridge and directly on the golf course.

Aspen, Colorado | October, 2020

Did you know that Crystal Mill is one of the most photographed spots in Colorado? The Crystal Mill (or the “Old Mill”) is an 1892 wooden powerhouse located on an outcrop above the Crystal River. It’s not the easiest location to get to — only accessible from Marble, Colorado, via 4×4 — so before heading out there, be sure to do some planning.

Sapphire Point Overlook, Breckenridge, Colorado | January 2021

Wintertime in the mountains is one of my favorite times of year. Whether you love to hit the slopes or just warm up in flannels with hot chocolate near the fireplace, the snow capped mountains and friendly towns in Summit County are inviting, welcoming, and just pure fun. There is something for everyone, including admiring these stunning views!
