Colorado Camping Elopement with Vivid Floral Installation

Maya and David’s Colorado Camping Elopement with Vivid Floral Installation

From their adventurous Bouldering engagement session to their elopement day, it was such a treat to work intimately with Maya and David to craft an experience that so truly aligned with their relationship and hopes for what their time in front of the camera would feel like.

Something that was really important to both of them when we started planning was not to be surrounded by a ton of people and to really have privacy, which can definitely be a challenge in Colorado as it’s no secret how much beauty there is in this state! When I went camping with my dad at this campground just outside of Lake George, Colorado, I knew it was the perfect spot that fit the bill when it came to getting them a beautiful environment while still preserving the intimacy (and not fighting over parking with others, of course).

My favorite memories surrounding their day were (just to name a few of many):

  • The camp host came by and was simply amazed by the florals that Stephanie from Flower Disco brought for their day
  • David took some of their red velvet wedding cake to some other campers and I just thought it was such a unique thing to their elopement to be sharing cake with total strangers and spreading the love
  • When the two of them dressed Pilot in his suit – not only are those pictures some of my favorite but it just felt like such a wholesome wedding day moment for that to be the last thing they did before heading up for their ceremony

Elopement Experience Review from Maya and David

Choosing an elopement photographer is such a key first step in planning your elopement, whether it be in the beautiful state of Colorado. But don’t just take my word for it, here’s what Maya and David had to say:

“Jessica was not only the consummate professional throughout the entire time we partnered with her, but she clearly leans into her clients – understanding their vision, and really taking great pains to not just execute against them, but to do so with quality. What impressed me the most about Jessica was how much genuine time and energy she poured into making my day a success and the flawlessness of that execution… Above and beyond is truly an understatement. I know that this is not the last time that I will be working with Jessica – her energy is infectious, her care is authentic, her love for her craft is genuine and all of that will be translated to your photos. If you are on the fence about whether to book, do yourself a favor and hire her – you won’t regret it.”
