    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! :)

This is one of the craziest things I’ve witnessed,” said Ryan, Jenny’s friend/videographer who attended and also filmed their wedding ceremony (Check out his work, he creates beautiful films!). This was the first elopement that Ryan has filmed. He was just in awe at how short, sweet and simple things were. No stress, no rushing. Just us, a light breeze and some beautiful views to the west.

It struck me just how normal this is to me now…elopements. Just me and my clients walking through nature trails, remarking about the beauty around us. These quiet little ceremonies are my normal now. And honestly, I couldn’t be happier or more fulfilled. Elopements like Jenny and Aaron’s just make my heart dance. Something tells me that Ryan might try seeking out a few more of these sweet elopements! 😉

We all met up in Colorado Springs, where Aaron and Jenny traveled all the way from Arizona to get married. We had an absolutely stunning background, Garden of the Gods, Pike’s Peak, gorgeous clouds with sunshine peeking through every now and then…. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to take photos, what a wonderful afternoon!

A few favorites…



Here is Ryan expressing his confusion/excitement over what he just witnessed. Hahaha!



After spending a week in Aspen to document some lovely fall elopements, I’m pretty much ready to pack up and move there. Can I just build a little cabin along the shores of Maroon Lake and live there forever? I’d even open up my little cabin for my clients to use while they are in town. Sounds like an awesome idea, right?! In all seriousness, I had a wonderful time in Aspen and Chad & Rebecca are a huge part of that reason! They planned a gorgeous destination fall elopement (all the way from Louisiana!) at the Maroon Bells in Aspen and invited me along to document it. Eloping seemed like the best way to go for them, since Rebecca is a physician with little time or energy to spare on planning a big wedding. They decided to invite 6 of their closest family and friends to be at their side as they said “I do” in one of the most beautiful areas Colorado has to offer. It was intimate, gorgeous, emotional and so incredible peaceful.

We had some very interesting weather, from sunshine to mist, light rain, to wind and what looked to be snow on top of the Bells. You never know what Colorado is going to throw at you, it certainly kept us on our toes! Rebecca was such a trooper, braving the cold in her wedding dress (an awesome Etsy find, by the way!). The weather scared away many of the hikers and photographers, leaving us with the place almost to ourselves. We hopped all over taking in the scenery and snapping photos. I am so thankful for the opportunity to work with such awesome, nature-loving clients! Rebecca and Chad, thanks for coming all the way to Colorado and allowing me to celebrate with you guys!:-)
