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! :)

Aspen Elopement {Ryan & Brittany}

I’m in love with everything about this sweet little wedding. I love the location {Maroon Bells is the BEST!). I love Brittany’s dress. I love the moody weather and the fact that Brittany and Ryan didn’t let a torrential downpour in the middle of their ceremony wipe the smiles off their faces. I love that they kept things small and intimate. I love that they hired Andrea to capture the love that they share. I love it all! One of the greatest privileges of doing what we do is that we get to travel all over this beautiful state of ours. Our focus on intimate weddings and elopements grants us access to locations that not everyone gets to experience. From private homes to locations off the beaten path, it’s neat to explore and document some of the most beautiful areas Colorado has to offer. The Maroon Bells Amphitheater is nothing short of incredible. It’s the perfect backdrop for a beautiful elopement like Ryan and Brittany’s! We’re so lucky we get to do stuff like this!:-)A few favorites…


Grand Lake Wedding {Ryan & Tyra}

Ryan and Tyra had a beautiful lakeside wedding at their private property near Grand Lake, CO. They planned a beautiful event! The weather was slightly uncooperative and the skies decided to open right in the middle of their ceremony. Thankfully, these two are so laid back and easy going that they just rolled with the punches and didn’t let the weather delay get in the way of enjoying the best day of their lives. I love all the rustic touches they included in their wedding and I especially loved the two precious horses that were there to take them around the property. Those sweet horses just captured my heart, so precious! Andrea had a wonderful time photographing this beautiful wedding! A few favorites…

Rocky Mountain Elopement {Troy & Kate}

I will just never get over the beauty, simplicity and peace that’s involved with these Rocky Mountain elopements. I honestly couldn’t ask for anything more than to be able to document days like this one. My job is such a blessing, I’m so very very grateful!

Anyone who has spent a day or two in Summit County, knows that the weather is always a gamble. No matter what precautions you take (morning ceremony, having a backup plan etc.) you’re at the mercy of the weather every time. There will always be risk. But as they say, with great risk comes great reward. Well, let’s just say Troy and Kate gambled and hit the jackpot.

They opted for a late afternoon ceremony in Copper Mountain’s precious little chapel, which was a smart move for several reasons.  As they said “I do” thunder boomed all around us and the skies opened up, bringing on one fierce thunderstorm. They exchanged vows in an intimate setting, with only their closest family and friends with them. We were all so grateful to be warm and dry inside, while the storm raged outside. What a blessing!

As luck would have it, just after their ceremony concluded, the sun came out and we were blessed with one of the most gorgeous evenings I’ve ever seen. It was the perfect combination of beautiful locations, beautiful lighting and undeniable chemistry between Troy and Kate. I’m not sure I could take better photos if I tried! All because we took a gamble and braved the storm. It doesn’t hurt when your clients are nature lovers and willing to go wherever for photos, even if it means a little trek through the woods.

Troy and Kate, thanks so much for rolling with the punches and braving the weather with me! I’m grateful for your willingness to trust me with locations and timing! You guys were a dream to work with, I was so delighted to spend the evening with you! I hope you enjoy the rest of your time out here in Colorado!
