Fall Piney Lake Engagement in Vail | Caroline & Brendan

Fall Piney Lake Engagement in Vail | Caroline & Brendan

If you’ve never seen the Gore Range from Piney Lake, it should be on your Colorado bucket list. For that reason alone, I was excited when Caroline and Brendan asked me to shoot their fall Piney Lake engagement in Vail. Located about 40 minutes North of the town of Vail up a logging road, it may be a bumpy ride but the view alone is worth the adventure. I haven’t been back since I photographed this wedding at the ranch and fall is the perfect time to visit.

The next morning Mother Nature greeted us with blue skies on our walk through Vail Village over to The Lodge at Vail where both wedding parties were getting ready. The ladies had a great view of the mountain while they did hair and makeup.
