Becky Young Photography {THE BLOG} bio picture
  • 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, 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! :)

Elopement at Garden of the Gods {Patrick & Jillian}

With all the crazy rain we’ve had here lately (what is this place, Seattle?!) I was absolutely shocked that Jillian and Patrick’s wedding day barely had a cloud in the sky! I’m pretty sure this was the only day in this whole month May so far that had bright blue sunshiny skies. Jillian and Patrick really lucked out with such a beautiful afternoon! They flew in from out of state so they could enjoy this beautiful backdrop for their wedding ceremony in Colorado Springs. Together with their families, Jillian and Patrick had a wonderful time celebrating their new life together as husband and wife!

As much as I wish I could take credit for these amazing photos, I have to give all the accolades to Andrea who did a beautiful job photographing their ceremony and photos within the park! They had the opportunity to hit a bunch of beautiful spots, making for lots of different backdrops for all the photos. I absolutely died over the last photo in the field…gah! So beautiful!

Denver Wedding {Sean & Kristi}

Sometimes you just have those clients…the ones whose love drips off the images. Their faith is tangible and visible, their commitment and grace is undeniable and all of those things make the wedding day go round. It’s not about the show, the details, and the timeline. It’s about genuine love, family unity, kindness, friendship and care for their guests and everyone who surrounds them (Andrea and I included!!!). To me, that is what a wedding day is all about. Yes, it’s a celebration. But it’s more than that, and Sean and Kristi know it and live that out every day, wedding day included.

Kristi and Sean got married just a few weeks after I had major brain surgery and they have been so kind through the whole process. Patient, gracious and considerate through and through. While I wasn’t at their wedding, I feel like I was because of the images Andrea was able to capture. We are so very blessed to have such wonderful clients like Kristi and Sean. Guys, thank you soooo sooo so much for rolling with the punches with me as I’ve been recovering and for being such amazing people! You are truly the salt of the earth.

Winter Wedding at Keystone Ranch {Alex & Juliet}

Having a winter wedding at Keystone Ranch would be absolutely amazing, I have no doubt that Juliet and Alex would affirm my thoughts about that! There is something about getting married in a cozy lodge, fire place roaring, surrounded by your closest friends and family while snow lays on the ground outside that makes my heart happy. I suppose it’s the warmth, intimacy and romantic atmosphere that makes me wish every wedding day was like this one! Juliet and Alex really wanted to keep things close to the heart by having a small, intimate wedding. We love intimate weddings because you have the opportunity to see and spend time with those who mean the most to you. You get quality time with those who mean the most to you, and that’s really what it’s all about right?

I absolutely died over the poppies in Juliet’s bouquet and I keep trying to find the perfect color name to describe them….not quite a deep traditional red and not quite orange…but a beautiful mixture that I’m head over heels in love with! I love how it stands out against the neutrals of the bridesmaid dresses. Andrea and I are so grateful to have the chance to work with Juliet and Alex, two of our kindest and most gracious clients. Thank you guys for being amazing and allowing Andrea to document your beautiful wedding day!
