Estes Park Winter Elopement

Turning a cold winters day into a special elopement story

Emily & Peter had originally planned to share their vows in the presence of their closest friends and family in Rocky Mountain National Park’s Lily lake, however, mother nature had different plans. After attempting to take some portraits at Lily, we realized that it was going to be too windy for their wedding ceremony, so we had to pivot. We packed everything up & I did a quick trip around downtown Estes Park to find the perfect spot that would still be beautiful but would also be tolerable. We landed on a quaint bridge near a local coffee shop. Their ceremony was simple yet intentional. It celebrated the beauty of marriage and shared how the gospel redeems and glorifies our failures and mistakes in covenant relationship. Since we hadn’t been able to finish our couple portraits before the ceremony, we decided to warm up and then reconnect in Fort Collins for couple portraits. There was a light dusting of snow and we arrived right as the sun was setting to create a beautiful scene for winter wedding photos.

Wanna Grab Some


My favorite part of wedding photography is the relationship that we are able to build with our clients- we are not just a vendor that you work with for a couple minutes but are an intimate part of every moment of your wedding day. Because of that, we would love to grab a coffee or dessert to get to know you better and to allow you to get to know us before booking.

Our booking process includes an inquiry call or coffee date where we will discuss what you are hoping for photography wise and then create a custom package together that both meets the needs for your day and your budget.
