    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! :)

Cozy Colorado elopements in the winter are my favorite! There’s something so magical about mountains + snow + eloping. It is the best combo! I often wonder why more people don’t opt to elope December-March here in Colorado. Yes, I know it’s cold and snowy. I know the roads are a bit more treacherous and the weather slightly unpredictable…but the reward for taking big risks is amazing! If I could photograph more snowy elopements with couples willing to risk being cold for a little while, I would be a happy camper! Plus, you get hot chocolate and warm cars when it’s over haha!

The warm winter light for Rebecca and Cody’s elopement at Lake Dillon was unbeatable. I had to scrape my jaw off the floor when I saw these images! The low sun in the wintertime is a wonderful advantage for beautiful photographs. One thing I loved the most was the color of Rebecca’s dress. I LOVE that she chose a nude/blush color because it contrasts so well with the white snow on the ground. And her bouquet? I’m obsessed. It contrasted so well with the snow! I am so grateful these two chose to take a big risk come to Colorado in the winter for their destination elopement. Congrats Cody and Rebecca!:-)

Andrea and I love getting the opportunity to photograph weddings at venues we’ve never been to before (like the Glenwood Canyon Resort!). Sure, it’s always great to be at a familiar place, but there is something about a new location that spark creativity. When Andrea found out Kate and Ryan were planning their wedding at the Glenwood Canyon Resort near Glenwood Springs, she jumped at the chance to work with them! And of course, not just because of the awesome venue…but because Kate and Ryan are wonderfully kind people with big hearts too! They had a gorgeous riverside ceremony deep within Glenwood Canyon. I love how the Colorado River peacefully flowed behind them during their vows, what a great backdrop! After the ceremony, they held a fun open-air cocktail hour and reception on the patio. I love how they were able to celebrate under stars and market lights, what a fun atmosphere! Congrats Kate and Ryan on your new life together as husband and wife!

The ceremony site for the Glenwood Canyon Resort is so beautiful! I love that you can have your wedding right on the banks of the river. Can you spot the rafter in the background?
