Family Reunion Photos in Estes Park
Estes Park is an incredibly popular place for family reunions, and every summer, hundreds of families have huge gatherings here in one of the most beautiful places in Colorado.
Estes Park sports a tons of fantastic venues, from huge hotels to medium sized lodges to smaller vacation rental homes. They’re all great for family reunions. Groups can go hiking, snow showing, fishing, horseback riding, or do any of the other fantastic opportunities in town.
What better way to remember these special events than to have great photographs of them?
My typical coverage for family reunions is 1 to 2 hours of photography time, which includes a mix of documentary work and traditional group portraiture. This yields around 80 to 150 photographs. Basically I shoot until I’m satisfied with the collection of images.
It’s not uncommon for me to shoot it all mixed together, so I can create candid photos of people laughing and hanging out in between the larger group shots.
With larger family gatherings, I often come to your hotel, whether it’s the YMCA of the Rockies, Dripping Springs, The Stanley Hotel, the Taharaa Mountain Lodge, or one of the many other awesome inns, hotels or B&B’s in Estes Park.
I really like shooting family reunions at the YMCA of the Rockies because there is a lot of space on the property, there are incredible views, and it’s pretty easy to escape the crowds and have a large area to work in.
Pricing for family reunions is the same as for family portraits: $800 for 1 to 2 hours of photography time. I find that often times, the session fee is split evenly by each family that comes to the family reunion — so if it’s 4 family units, each contributes $200.
The family reunion package includes…
1 to 2 hours of photography time
online image gallery with print capability
a collection high res photos to download
multiple locations if requested
If you are interested in print packages, I have popular family reunion print products that include custom retouched 11×16 heirloom canvas prints of each individual family, or a 20×30 canvas of everyone at the reunion. Pricing is $175 for each 11×16 canvas and $350 for the 20×30 canvas.
Often, the grandparents in the family receive the large print as a gift.
