Sunrise Lost Gulch Overlook Elopement
I cannot stress enough how busy Lost Gulch gets. And how pretty much the only time I will suggest this location for a Lost Gulch Overlook Elopement is in the wee hours of the morning. Sunrise is by far the best time for anyone to do a photo session or elopement. You beat most of the crowds this early and it makes it a little more private. Even tho we did a sunrise elopement, we still had to work around 2 other couples that were up there doing the same thing. In the evening time, you can easily have 8+ different couples up there trying to make it all work for their session. And let me tell you.. Lost Gulch is not a huge location with tons of space to move around. So if you are considering using this spot for your Lost Gulch Elopement, don’t even wonder if you should do evening or morning… Just opt for Sunrise time 😉
For this particular day, we started the morning nearly 30 minutes before the sun came up. This is the best time to start a sunrise session or elopement. We spent about an hour up at Lost Gulch Overlook and then we headed down the mountain to Chautauqua park to finish their portraits. And holyyyy moly you guys! Chautauqua park was as beautiful as ever. It made for such a gorgeous backdrop for their photos. Did you know you can also elope in Chautauqua park? Yup! And it’s pretty awesome as well. Just take a look at this Chautauqua Park Elopement I did last year!
