    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! :)

Some of you know that I had some health issues that sprang up last August out of nowhere. Things started to snowball and before I knew it, I was at UCLA meeting with 2 of the top neurosurgeons in the country talking about having a brain surgery. I am almost 4 months post-op now! It’s been a really long road, full of ups and downs, progress, setbacks, hope and ultimately…healing. I am so happy to say that I am really starting to feel like myself again. Slowly, I’ve gotten back into photography. Slowly, I’ve gotten back to my normal life.

For me, part of “normal life” is heading into the mountains to camp and hike. This weekend was the first time I really got back out into the wilderness and enjoyed some quality time in the fresh mountain air. It was glorious! David and I headed to the Flattops Wilderness, which is located a bit NW of Vail. We had never been to this part of Colorado and I’ve been dying to go, so we headed out for a simple one night camping trip. I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction back into the wilderness! We drank hot coffee in the cool mountain air, watched storms roll over the Flattops, fished, swung in our hammock, basked in wildflowers, had a great campfire and enjoyed a sky full of stars.

I am so looking forward to more of these weekends this summer and fall! I am going to try extra hard to document our adventures and post pretty photos to this little space of mine.:-)


I’ve said it before and I will say again, Rocky Mountain National Park is probably one of my all time favorite elopement locations in Colorado. There is a reason this place is a National Park and why so many of my clients choose to get married here…it’s amazing! Like so many people drawn to the natural beauty of Colorado, M & C came all the way from Texas with their closest friends and family to elope! We trekked into the middle of Rocky Mountain National Park and they had a beautiful ceremony overlooking the valley and mountains all around us. We had a few weather delays and a major lightning strike 50 yards away (that’s got to be good luck, right?!). But wet shoes and threatening skies couldn’t stop M & C from having an amazing, heartfelt ceremony and tying the knot!destination-wedding-in-colorado-locationdestination-mountain-wedding-locationdestination-elopement-in-the-mountains

Kate and Alex had the most quintessential summer wedding at the Della Terra. I love that they made such great use out of the beautiful outdoors available to them! Whether it was guests playing cornhole, their sunny outdoor ceremony or simply enjoying the mild evening after dinner, being outside in the mountain air was top priority!

I love their color scheme of ivories, peach, blush, grey and corals- the tones blend so well together! All of the beautiful details really came together to make this beautiful palette! As always the Della Terra staff really went above and beyond to help create a beautiful day for Kate and Alex! We are so blessed to work with such a great team of professionals!


Thank you Kate and Alex for allowing Andrea to spend the day with you and document your wedding! We are so grateful to have you as clients and to be with you during such a special time in your life!

J and R are as about ideal of clients as I could possibly have the pleasure of working with! Kind, organized, trusting, hired a fabulous wedding planner 😉 They came all the way from Texas with a handful of their closest friends, family and precious pups to celebrate high atop Copper Mountain together. It does not get more “Colorado” than Solitude Station at Copper Mountain Resort! The backdrop is jawdropping beautiful, I could just live up there with my camera and be perfectly happy!

They planned a colorful, intimate ceremony at Copper Mountain with a small reception at the Pinnacle Lodge, a beautiful private home in Copper. We had a small technical issue with the chairlift on the day of their wedding, so we got to add 4x4ing up the mountain to our adventure together. It was fun ride together and we got to stop along the way and take photos with beautiful vistas. I guarantee you that not many couples getting married at Copper will get a private tour of the mountain like we did! We considered ourselves very lucky to have the whole mountain to ourselves!

J and R, thank you a million times over for allowing me to join you on top of that big beautiful mountain. You have been a true delight to work with and I am forever grateful for your kindness, flexibility and graciousness! I wish you a lifetime of love and puppy snuggles! 😉
