Elopement Portraits in Colorado

Colorado Elopement Portraits

I’ve always loved Colorado, so when Raquelle posted that she would be traveling to have pictures done in her wedding dress and Chris would be in his suit, I reached out to her right away. She sent me the details and the dates that she was considering and luckily I was available! We ironed out the details decided on the weekend and we booked our travel!

We made it out to Colorado on a Friday and the plan was to do the session on Saturday at Pikes Peak. We met up at noon at the entrance of Pikes Peak and hopped in one car and started driving up the highway scouting locations. We made up to Glen Cove and decided to start there and work our way down and hit the spots that we decided on. Y’all…we had the best time! The pictures came out amazing and Raquelle was a trooper in the cold and windy parts. We were on a mountain so we knew the higher up we went there would be more wind and it would be colder but we still had perfect weather! The sun was out and the high was 65 degrees! The next day it was a high of 20 something and it was snowing for the next two days we were there! We were meant to shoot on that beautiful Saturday and get these amazing photos, Enjoy!

It had everything you could hope for in a Colorado photo location: lakes, trees, and mountains!
