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!
