If you're looking for amazing mountain views for your Boise engagement photos, Bogus Basin is the perfect location for you! Here are some reasons we love it…

Epic Mountain Top Views for your Engagement Photos 

Bogus Basin has sweeping mountain top views in multiple places.

The bonus of choosing Bogus Basin for your mountain engagement photos is that there are photo locations there that do not require a lot of hiking. You can easily drive to the top of Bogus, park, and walk shorter distances to get to some beautiful photo locations!

Reminders for Engagement Photos at Bogus Basin

Because Bogus Basin is a mountain photo location, here are some things to keep in mind for your engagement photos. 

  • With the elevation change, temperatures at Bogus are colder than downtown Boise. Bring back up layers and warm walking shoes if wearing more formal attire for your engagement session at Bogus. 
  • Driving up the mountain takes extra time, especially in the winter. When the road is clear, it can take between 35 and 50 minutes to drive to the main parking lot at Bogus. During the winter months, plan for a longer drive with traffic and snow. 
  • As with any nature photo location, it’s important to honor the natural resources and preservation of land. During your engagement photo session, it’s okay to bring props or use locations as long as we leave nothing behind,  leave the land in the same condition we found it, and keep off any areas marked for preservation.

Wedding photography is my heartbeat. I love capturing the interactions between the bride and her tribe as they get ready together, the look on a groom’s face when he FINALLY sees his bride for the first time, and the way a dad wraps his arms around his baby girl on her wedding day. Bride and groom portraits make my heart jump and I cry on almost every wedding day.
