Questions people ask about National Park Photography:

Can you take engagement photos at Badlands National Park?

The answer is yes, but you need to make sure you call ahead and ensure that you secure any permits that may be required and understand the rules and restrictions. National Parks are protected land areas and so it is so important to respect the land and nature and leave no trace. The park rangers will be able to give you all the tips and recommendations you need when entering the park.

When is the best time to take photos at Badlands national park?

Due to the nature of sunlight and shadows, we recommend beating the crowds and doing your photo session during sunrise. If you’re not a morning person, you can also opt for sunset which will be just as beautiful. The reason we recommend sunrise though is to avoid crowds and other people possibly getting in your shots.
