When Michell and Mikhail contacted me about their winter elopement in Estes Park I was excited because I knew how much they would enjoy the beauty that Colorado has to offer. I enjoy sharing the state with couples who travel in for their special day. I met them at The Stanley Hotel in Estes for a quick photo before we drove up to Sprague Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park for their elopement ceremony.
I loved the laughter, love and emotion that they shared with each other. Their vows rang incredibly true to their commitment to one another. The moment was raw and real. I was a joy to be able to not only capture those moments but also be a witness to their day.
After their winter elopement ceremony we explored around Sprague Lake, making portraits along the way. I made it a point for us to stop in the valley on our way out of the park and I’m glad that we did. The overcast skies parted just enough to see the mountain range in the background.
Congratulations on a wonderful elopement you two, it was a pleasure!
