Description of your Off-road Mountain Elopement in Colorado
Looking for an off-road adventure wedding? How about a mountain elopement in Colorado?
Situated in the heart of the San Juan Mountains in southwest Colorado, Ouray is known as the Switzerland of America. Located in the Uncompaghre River Valley at 7,792 feet, surrounded by the snow-capped San Juan Mountains. You almost expect to hear yodeling echo from these high hills. Ouray and the surrounding picturesque mountain towns offer a variety of Jeep roads and hiking trails to explore. During our time together for your epic mountain elopement, I will be able to show you amazing mountain peaks, roaring waterfalls, wildflower carpeted meadows, and more! You have the option of seeing the alpenglow, the rosy light of the setting, or the rising sun seen on high mountains, which is truly a breathtaking sight to see. I specialize in capturing the truth of a moment and turning it into an immersive, jaw-dropping image. Who says you have to choose between intimate moments of connection or sweeping landscape photography? I’m here to give you both! And through an experience that whimsically blends the silly and sophisticated, you’re sure to savor every second. Choosing to wed in the mountains is an unbelievable and unique experience, no matter what that entails. Whether it’s jeeping, hiking, or just relaxing, your wedding day adventure should be all about you and your love. So, if you’re ready to have a photography experience unlike any other (and probably leave with a little bit of the mountain on the hem of your gown), buckle up! Let’s take this show off the road!

But no matter what story you wish to tell, my goal is to celebrate everything that makes you you with every click of my camera. And I’ll quite literally go the extra mile to do it!

I love the couples that are up for anything and trust me fully with planning out and shooting their day. I had one couple that comes to mind that were a perfect example of this! We originally had planned a 9-mile hike for their elopement, but due to a very busy holiday weekend, we completely changed everything the morning of, to a full day of jeeping in the mountains. They totally trusted me with taking them to epic locations, and it was one of my favorite days ever. And they raved about the day and how I made it amazing for them.
