Tips for Capturing Your Colorado Vacation Memories

It’s no secret that Colorado has a ton of beautiful vacation destinations. People come from all over the world to visit our beautiful state! So why not hire a photographer for a family photoshoot while you’re visiting so you can remember the vacation forever?



3 Tips for Capturing Your Colorado Vacation Memories


1. Do your research

Spend some time researching photographers near the Colorado area you plan to visit. Pinterest, Instagram, and good old Google are great places to start the search. Check out their website portfolios or social media to get a sense of their editing and posting styles. When you find a photographer whose work matches your vision, reach out ASAP and ask for their availability, travel capabilities, and location recommendations (or check out this post for my top 3 Colorado Family Photo Locations). PS I travel around the entire state for family photos and I would love to capture your family memories for you! 😉


2. Come prepared

Plan out and pack a few neutral, casual outfits for the whole family. Don’t stress about finding dressy or perfectly coordinated clothing – keeping it simple is always best. Between your beautiful family and the amazing scenery, the photos will be gorgeous.

3. Plan a backup date

You know the old saying “if you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes”? It’s honestly true here in colorful Colorado! Summertime is usually sunny and warm, with possible quick rain showers in the late afternoon. But we’ve even been known to have an occasional snowstorm all the way into June (don’t worry, they’re rare and usually melt within 24 hours)! Colorado weather can be a bit unpredictable, so it’s always good to be flexible and leave room for a backup date during your vacation.



It might be a little extra work to plan a family photoshoot on your Colorado vacation, but you’ll love these pictures for years to come!
