This sunset Gold Creek Pond engagement session is right out of Ferngully! The mountain glow mixed with green overgrowth is so dreamy. These vibes make Gold Creek Pond such a great spot to shoot, that’s why it’s usually busy at golden hour. For this session we headed out on a weekday evening and had the whole place almost completely to ourselves! This worked out so great because we were able to even have some water play and not worry about whether people were going to be swimming next to us.
The light at Gold Creek Pond always seems to hit the mountains just right and there are plenty of beautiful spots to switch up your backdrops. If you’re interested in planning a Gold Creek Pond engagement session, it’s best to shoot for a weekday sunrise or sunset to avoid having to work around crowds!
The loop around Gold Creek Pond is only a mile and if we plan it just right, we usually have enough time to explore the entirety of the lake. There’s even a little peninsula that juts out into the middle of the water. We didn’t shoot any there during this session, but you can see the peninsula in some of the photos.
