Colorado Elopement and intimate Wedding Photographer

Capturing your love and helping to make your dream rocky mountains wedding day a reality

From extensive guest lists to long to-do lists, planning a traditional wedding can feel way more like putting on a production for your guests rather than a true-to-you celebration of your love… so why not toss out those expectations and elope in the beautiful mountains of Colorado?

Colorado is filled with limitless unique landscapes to explore including the breathtaking Great Sand Dunes National Park in southern Colorado, the turquoise lakes of the San Juan Mountains in the west, and the postcard-worthy views in Rocky Mountain National Park.

What your Colorado elopement day could look like

Envision this… The two of you getting ready early in the morning in a cozy cabin tucked away in the Rocky Mountains. After each of you put the finishing touches on your vows, we lace up our hiking boots and head out to the trailhead for a beautiful, headlamp-lit hike.

We venture along the trail as it slowly becomes more and more visible as sunrise approaches. When we arrive at the beautiful alpine lake where the water is still as glass, both of you change into your wedding attire and exchange an emotion-filled first look. As we walk along the lakeshore, you find the perfect spot to exchange vows and promise forever to one another with nature (and maybe your pups) as your witnesses. Your day is spent in a way that’s perfectly “you,” whether that be relaxing and having coffee by the lake, exploring on a dirt road that requires 4WD, soaking in hot springs, or canon balling into the water! Most importantly, every moment of your wedding day combines together to be nothing but relaxing and true-to-you.

“If you’re looking for just a photographer I suggest looking elsewhere. Jessica is so much more than that! She’s your right hand woman, inspiration, planner (especially if you’re like me and just had no idea where to even start). She looked into so many places where we could possibly elope, because I wasn’t even sure where to begin with that either. She kept my spirits high during the uncertain COVID times. She transported my flowers and delivered them safely. Jessica became more than just a photographer in so many ways including being a great friend. She captured the silliness and love in our relationship. I plan to use her for any future photos I am wanting and will recommend her every single time someone is looking. Thank you Jessica for being so amazing!”

    Step 2: let's chat

    We’ll schedule a phone or video call to discuss the process of working together a bit more as well as allowing me to better understand your vision and get to know one another! After that, when you’re ready to book, I’ll send over a contract for you to sign as well as an invoice for the retainer to hold your date.

    Step 3: planning

    We’ll start with a questionnaire to help me get to know you two as a couple, learn things you love to do together, understand your vision, etc. so that when I’m helping you plan your day – we can create something that feels true-to-you. From there, we’ll pick the perfect location(s) and create a rough timeline of your day!

    Step 4: photo time!

    I love taking a mix of a documentary approach and a posed approach to my couple’s wedding days. I love for you to have those little, natural moments captured – but I also know how hard it can be being in front of the camera, so I help you two get more comfortable and get some epic shots that really show off your love!

    i’m so excited to hear from you and to start this exciting process!
