    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! :)

Andrea has really taken off this year with intimate weddings! She’s had the privilege of working with some amazing people, like Rachel and Conor, who are choosing to do things a tiny bit differently. Not necessarily eloping, but certainly not planning a giant event either. They are finding a happy medium in between the two….inviting truly their closest friends and family, keeping things small and also preserving the more traditional feel of a wedding where the focus isn’t always on the details of the event, but also on connections, relationships, marriage and beautiful moments. It’s a lovely hybrid and Rachel and Conor pulled it off beautifully!

They held their ceremony at Sapphire Point, overlooking Lake Dillon. Afterwards, their intimate reception took place at the Lake Dillon lawn, what a perfect way to celebrate! I think doing things lakeside adds a fun element for your guests, they had 360 views! We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Rachel and Conor!

Mountaintop elopements are amazing! Surrounded by 360 degree views and cool mountain air (or wind in our case haha!) and an incredible mountain backdrop. You definitely have the sense that you’re on top of the world! It’s no wonder Christin and Tom traveled all the way to Keystone from Ohio so they could get married at the top of the mountain! What a fun way to celebrate with their parents and siblings! I love that they chose to keep their wedding small and lighthearted.

We got to take the gondola up the mountain and the chairlift back down the mountain so we could take in all the views along the way! The rain and wind settled in at the top of the mountain so we opted to head down to Lake Dillon for the rest of their photos in hopes of finding calmer weather. After a few sprinkles of rain, we got to spend our time in the wildflowers along the shores of Lake Dillon. What a wonderful day! Many thanks to my sweet friend Amy Caroline for coming with me and helping me out!

Kate and Ryan enjoyed a beautiful engagement session along the shores of Lake Dillon in Summit County with Andrea the other day! We’ve had to reschedule multiple times due to the crazy mountain weather so it was so nice for them to finally get some sunshine and pretty clouds! The Lake Dillon area is so beautiful in the summer but it has been particularly beautiful this year with all the gorgeous wildflowers and lush greenery. Yay wildflowers! Can’t wait to see the images from Kate and Ryan’s wedding this fall in Glenwood Springs!

Intimate wedding + Aspen = happy photographer!

I always try to explain why I love intimate weddings and elopements (like Mike and Rachael’s Aspen wedding) so much. Much of it has to do with working alongside like-minded people who love the wilderness, love Colorado, love each other so much that they can’t help but travel to Colorado and get married! Much of it has to do with the fact that I get to be surrounded by the woods, the mountain air, alpine lakes and mountains…my happy place. Combine to two together…beautiful people who love each other and the majestic Rocky Mountains, and you will not see me happier or more creatively alive. Love it!

When Rachael first emailed me, she said she had no doubt that she and I were kindred spirits. Even from a few hundred miles away, she felt a shared love for the outdoors come through my photos and just knew we were meant to work together! I couldn’t agree more! Rachael and Mike planned a beautiful intimate wedding at the Maroon Bells amphitheater in Aspen, Colorado. They opted for a morning ceremony with their closest family and friends, followed by a brunch reception at the Hotel Jerome in downtown Aspen. We had the best lighting, the best backdrop and lots of time to wander the fields and trails together! What a joy it was to get to know each other and spend a beautiful morning together celebrating!
