This one is a pretty big deal. I had imagined my own wedding to be an elopement to the mountains. Something simple. Sweet. Just like this one. Emily & Bryan knew I was going to Estes Park to shoot a wedding. They asked me if I would shoot an elopement while I was there. I told them I love the idea. Their wedding plans had been thrown into disarray because of the pandemic. I’m still shooting their formal wedding next year. It’ll be great. But shooting a wedding in the winter in Rocky Mountain National Park was on my bucket list. In September I shot two of them in one week!
It was just the three of us. That’s all that is required in Colorado. I was a witness. I also completed the ceremony. Every single ingredient was there. A cabin, boots instead of shoes & heels, fresh snow as far as the eye can see, craft beers instead of champagne. All of their details were focused on their relationship & their sense of adventure. They love to travel & they love nature. This was everything a love story should be.
This was a magical afternoon for two of the sweetest people (for all 3 of us really). It’s so exciting to think that every day together will be like that for them.
An elopement. A feel trip. A love story. A massive September snow storm.
This is almost like a Hallmark Christmas movie…and just like those, this one has the happiest of endings.
This is extreme kung fu.
