Becky Young Photography {THE BLOG} bio picture
  • Hi there and welcome to the Becky Young Photography blog! I am a mountain loving wedding photographer based in beautiful Colorado. I specialize in photographing elopements and intimate weddings for happy couples who love the great outdoors. Here, in my slice of the internet, you will find lots of pictures from my recent sessions. And every now and then, you will also find a post or two from my adventures with my husband David! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Lake Estes Elopement {Ryan & Kristin}

What an amazing morning we had! Kristin and Ryan came all the way to Estes Park from Kansas to get married along the shore of Lake Estes. As I was driving up the Big Thompson canyon, I was mildly concerned about the weather, as I looked west and saw nothing but ominous clouds hanging all around.

When I arrived in Estes, I was greeting by a stunning rainbow right over Kristin and Ryan’s ceremony location, it was beautiful! The rainbow was soon followed by a little snow/sleet/rain/mist right before their ceremony. Then we were treated to sunshine and eventually when we got into Rocky Mountain National Park, the clouds lifted and we were treated to the best backdrop in all of Colorado (in my humble opinion). It was almost even warm. Sweet Kristin was such a trooper to brave the elements in her wedding dress! It turned into such a beautiful morning and I’m so glad Ryan and Kristin were treated to some of the beauty Colorado has to offer for their wedding day! Congrats guys, thanks for braving the cold with me to capture some awesome photos!:-)

Maroon Bells Elopement {Brian & Leah}

Eloping at the Maroon Bells in the fall…I mean, does it get any better?! Seriously, Leah and Brian’s elopement ceremony was the BEST! We had a crisp and quiet fall day, with a few little rain drops, lots of beautiful aspen trees and the magnificent Maroon Bells in the background. It was eloping perfection! They chose a perfect spot along the shoreline of Maroon Lake to hold their ceremony. Their beautiful daughter and sweet pup were in attendance. Aside from a handful of curious hikers passing by who stopped to say congrats, we had the place to ourselves, which was such a treat!

Leah and Brian have been together for 8 years and decided this was the perfect time to tie the knot. I love that they chose to keep things simple and to focus on their family and being together in Aspen. They get to celebrate in Aspen all weekend long, so fun! Congrats guys, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of such a special day!

Lake Dillon Wedding {Jim & Jamie}

Oh my stars…this wedding! Jamie and Jim chose a beautiful spot on the shores of Lake Dillon near Keystone for their intimate wedding ceremony. I love that they kept things small, choosing to focus on their closest friends and family to surround themselves with. They chose the perfect date too, the fall colors were in full display! They rented the beautiful Star Mountain House in Keystone for their celebration afterwards. Renting a big mountain home is such an awesome idea! It gives you a place to stay, to relax and a place to celebrate, it’s perfect! Congrats Jamie and Jim, Andrea had an awesome time with you, thanks for trusting her to capture your memories!

Estes Park Intimate Wedding {Mike & Ashley}

This year has been a big transition for my business. I’ve gone from photographing big weddings to focusing solely on intimate weddings and elopements. I’ve had a lot of people ask me what exactly constitutes an “intimate wedding.” And while I don’t think there are any official rules, I tend to think of weddings that have less than 50 guests and retain a more relaxed atmosphere. There typically aren’t 18 people in the bridal party, nor is there a huge emphasis on recreating 4 dozen ideas from your Pinterest boards (though usually 1 or 2…or 3 or 4 are acceptable;-)). The focus is on family. It’s on your best friends and the people you love the most. There’s an emphasis on love, vows, marriage, connection, friendships….less emphasis on details, people you don’t know, stressful time lines and logistical nightmares. It’s about simplicity, happiness, friends and family. These intimate weddings have stolen my heart and Mike and Ashley’s wedding just proves that!

Ashely and Mike chose the Della Terra as the backdrop for their gorgeous fall wedding in Estes Park! The second I met Ashley and Mike, I knew we were meant to work together. They are two of the most easy-going and relaxed people I’ve ever met. They just know how to go with the flow, have fun and keep things lighthearted. We had the most perfect fall day for their wedding. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, they said their vows nestled in the pine trees. We even had a little visit by some wild turkeys, deer, blue birds and chipmunks-seems like local wildlife wanted to get in on the party! All in all it was a perfect day and the perfect way for me to end my 2014 wedding season!

Ashley and Mike, I’m so grateful to have been with you on such an amazing day! Your love is so sweet and I’m thankful I got to witness such beautiful moments between you two. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding!
