Colorado Elopement


It’s not because the mountains are taller. However, that’s a major tip of the hat. It’s about the stories the mountains tell. Overcoming, conquering giants, a love for the land and a hope for the future. As a Colorado Elopement Photographer, capturing these feelings, these memories are my top priority. Capturing you as you truly are, celebrating your journey.

Rachel & Noah’s Breckenridge elopement started as the sun rose over the rockies. As they said their heartfelt vows, they were illuminated by the morning sun. After, they made breakfast at their airbnb, toasted with coffee and champagne before going on a walk with their dogs.

Eloping In Colorado

My Approach Is Simple:
Your Elopement Is Not A Performance

How I Can Help You Plan Your Colorado Elopement:

Personalizing Your Elopement Day

Planning your elopement day is actually quite easy! Through our conversations and a questionnaire, we’ll collaborate to create your elopement day. I’ll take all the little details that make you feel comfortable, feel authentic and have brought you to your wedding day. Together, we’ll leave out the performance and really dig deep into what celebrating on your own terms looks and feels like, simplifying the experience to avoid overcomplicating your beautiful day.

Elopement Location Scouting

I’ve lived in Colorado for 6+ years and know this state like the back of my hand. Via a questionnaire, you’ll be able to express your needs and wants for your elopement location and I’ll present some options that match your exact description. This is a great way to give you a starting point to explore more locations, give me more specifics to narrow down the search, or choose one of the locations I presented. You 100% have the final say in your location!

Trusted Vendor Recommendations

Having a team of vendors that also align and buy into your vision is key. However, working with trusted vendors is even more important! From the descriptions you give me, I’ll source and share some of my personal favorites that I would trust to provide a service at my own wedding. Lastly, you will have full freedom to book who ever you feel is the best fit. Don’t forget, this is all about personalization to exactly what you need and want.

Customized Timeline Creation • Personalized Location Scouting • Planning & Vision Calls • A Planning Portal To Organize Your Plans • Colorado Elopement Guides & Resources • Trusted Vendor Recommendations • Contact Me At Any Time • Inclement Weather Security • 9+ Years of Elopement Experience • 6+ Years Of Colorado Elopement Experience • Flex Dates • Collection Credit If Using A Planner
