    Hi there and welcome to the Becky Young Photography blog! I am a mountain loving photographer based in beautiful Colorado. I specialize in photographing elopements and intimate weddings for happy couples who love the great outdoors. Here you will find lots of photos from recent sessions, and a few landscape photos and from my adventures with my husband David! Thanks for stopping by! :)

I’ve always wanted to photograph an elopement ceremony on top of a 14er (for those of you not from Colorado, a 14er is a mountain over 14,000 ft. high…Colorado has 53 of them!). Yesterday I crossed that goal off of my list with Christina and John’s amazing sunrise elopement on top of Mount Evans! What an incredible morning we had together. It’s hard to even know where to begin describing our experience, it was amazing!

I’ve always said that with Colorado, big risk often leads to big reward. If you’re willing to wake up at 3am, drive in the dark to the top of a giant mountain when the weather is calling for cloudy conditions, rain and wind…well, sometimes you’re lucky enough to get a big reward. I love when my clients are easy going enough to just say “we’re in, let’s hope for the best and see what happens!” John and Christina were definitely up for anything and willing to roll with the punches!

When we arrived at the summit, we were greeted with near hurricane-force winds and the temperature was hovering around 35 degrees. The entire summit was socked in with swirling fog, wind and clouds that just didn’t seem to want to relent. However, with a little patience, optimism and a strategic location choice, we were able to get underneath the clouds and we witnessed one of the best sunrises that I have ever photographed.

The skies were a mixture of pink, purple, orange all whirling together. On top of that, there was a light rainstorm over Denver which was backlit by the rising sun and just added an extra dimension of beauty to our time together. And John and Christina were lucky enough to get married as the beautiful scene unfolded before our eyes.Sunrise-on-mount-evans14er-summit-wedding-locationdestination-mountain-elopement-locationdestination-elopement-photographersunrise-elopement-on-a-mountain-in-coloradoeloping-at-sunrise-in-coloradoepic-elopement-locationepic-elopement-location-in-coloradodestination-elopement-locationroad-on-mount-evanselopement-announcement-sign-photoeloping-on-mnt-evansalpine-lake-elopement-locationalpine-elopement-coloradorocky-mountain-destination-elopementelopement-with-amazing-views

I will always have a soft spot in my heart for weddings at Ten Mile Station. I grew up skiing at Breckenridge, we had a little cabin just up Hwy 9 and spent almost every free weekend on the slopes. Ten Mile Station was always my place of refuge when the temperature got too cold or my legs got too tired. It offers some of the most spectacular views in all of Breckenridge from one of the most relaxing outdoor patios that ever existed.

It’s really no wonder that Jaclyn and Anders chose this amazing place to get married, it’s all around amazing! The space fits their personalities perfectly. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a happy, carefree couple in my life. Jaclyn had a smile on her face the entire day, Andrea caught soooo many photos of her and Anders laughing. My face literally hurt from editing their photos because I started smiling right along with them. Nola, their sweet pup was present for the entire wedding (although may have nodded off during the ceremony a few times). The weather held out and the clouds created some of the most beautiful ceremony lighting we have seen all year. What a great day!
