Lookout Mountain Couples Session - Carrie & Dave - Colorado Elopement Photographer

Ever since moving back to Colorado I have wanted to shoot a session or elopement at Lookout Mountain in Golden. Finally I was able to meet up with Carrie and Dave and shoot not only some fun photos, but also we were able to create a fun little video together. Check out their session here.


After we finished up at Lookout Mountain, we headed down by Clear Creek to get just a couple other photos down by the river.

Mount Evans Wilderness Engagement - Heather & Tim - Colorado Elopement Photographer

Being a Colorado native, I love getting out in the mountains. There is something about getting out in nature that just hits the me and breathes life into the soul. Well, anyway, one of my favorite things is taking couples to new places, locations where when we roll up, they just stop and say

“Wow”

Well, when we planned on this location there was a chance that the Mt. Evans road would be closed. We were hoping to get up into the Summit Lake Park, but I knew there was a chance that we would not be able to use the road, so I had a back up plan.

We planned to meet at Echo Lake Park and start shooting. There is a great view of the mountains there and it is absolutely gorgeous.

Next we did a quick outfit change. Heather had been on the search for the perfect red dress for the engagement session. And all I can say is CHECK IT.

And as with all of my sessions we created a video together. Check out their engagement video!

Sunrise Couples Session - Samantha & Dan - Colorado Elopement Photographer

As I mentioned in a previous blog post sunrise sessions are some of my favorites. You get to wake up early see some wildlife and shoot some epic photos with some rad couples.

Samantha and Dan headed out for a short trip from Minnesota. When she first messaged me she told me how the two of them eloped because they wanted to be able to put more money to travelling rather than spending it on a big shindig.

About a year ago (just a few days after their elopement) Samantha was involved in a near fatal car accident, so they promised that they were going to get out and travel as much as possible and to not take their time together for granted.

So they Ubered up from Denver really early, and met me in Boulder. From there I drove them up Flagstaff Road where we had the most epic views for the first part of the session.

After this rad mountain view and sunrise clouds, I wanted to take them down to Boulder Falls to shoot just a little bit more.

The falls had been closed for some time after the flood in 2013, but this real had recently opened back up. I had been down there for a shoot for the outdoor apparel company that I work for, and knew that I had to shoot there again soon.

So I decided to take Samantha & Dan down there.

Flagstaff Outlook Boulder Sunrise Session - Brooke & Jeff - Colorado Elopement Photographer

Once again I bring you a rad sunrise session. Brooke and Jeff had recently moved to Colorado and they wanted to have some photos done in their new home state. So I took them up Flagstaff and we met just before sunrise.

Most of my shoots in Boulder I try to shoot in at least two locations. There are so many amazing spots that it is fun to get several scenes for my couples. So after sunrise at Flagstaff, we headed down to Walker Ranch.

Vail Elopement - Matt & Lauren - Colorado Elopement Photographer

Recently I had the amazing opportunity to shoot an adventure elopement in Vail, Colorado. Matt & Lauren were up from Arizona and hit me up to do a little elopement session while they were in Vail. Colorado has had an amazingly warm winter so the snow was a little scarce, but I wanted to get them out into nature and have some fun experiencing the beauty that is Vail. 

We didn't have much time so we met in Vail Village by the bridge to get a shot there and then headed up to the trail. 

They were troopers and hiked through the ice and mud to get up to the spots that I had found. 

Finally after slipping through and almost falling, and arriving with the Vans still clean we reached the spot that I had found and had a blast. 

A little further up the trail there was an aspen grove that I wanted to use for the video I was shooting as well. So we hiked up, or slipped up and shot a couple more photos. 

While we had some beautiful scenery, there was one shot that I wanted to get with the mountains in the background. So we headed back to the car and drove to one last spot to snag this photo.
