When Mackenzie contacted me about doing their summer engagement photos in Palisade, I was so stoked. The vineyards are leafy green and the evenings are finally cooling off again. I love Palisade in the summer and fall! These two were here on their annual trip to the valley, a special tradition that they wanted captured while they were here.
Mark has been coming to Palisade for years with his family and knew he wanted that Mt. Garfield backdrop for some of the photos. We took advantage of the luscious green backdrop of the park and pond before heading up to an overlook location with some vines as the sun sank lower to the horizon. At the overlook we could see helicopters and planes flying above us, as a nearby area was on fire. It’s a little scary to think about a wild fire being so close by, but we were lucky it didn’t affect our evening!
It was such a beautiful evening for Mark and Mackenzie’s summer engagement photos in Palisade. Take a peek at a few of my favorites!
