Pundt Park is one of my favorite places to take photos of couples. The background is covered with tall trees. During golden hour the sun sets behind the trees which are great for even lighting. You can wear shoes or go completely barefoot as you walk the sandy shore. It’s such an easy romantic option for engagement photos or save the dates. I find the best time to start your session is at least an hour and a half before the sun sets since you’re surrounded by high trees that start to block the sun a lot sooner than if you were in an open field. If you’re looking for a nature-type vibe for your photos you should definitely think about doing your engagement session at Pundt Park.

The parking lot is right across the street from the dog park. Make sure you wear bug spray and bring enough cold water if you’re planning to walk or bike the trails.
