    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! :)

Wildernest Wedding, Loveland {Nick & Melissa}

Maybe it’s because Melissa is a redhead, maybe it’s because they got married in the town where I live, maybe it’s because their wedding kicks off our amazing 2015 wedding season or maybe because peonies are in season again…whatever it is, I’m in love with this beautiful wedding! Melissa and Nick were married at Wilder-Nest Retreat B&B in the beautiful hills of Loveland. This place is fantastic! It’s full of open fields, beautiful barns, a stream, red rock cliffs and baby goat (yessss!!!). I can’t think of a better place to have an intimate wedding with your closest friends and family! Everything about this beautiful location is perfect for a small gathering. What an awesome find! Andrea had a wonderful day with Nick and Melissa, documenting their first moments as husband and wife together. Congratulations guys!

Summit County Intimate Wedding {Eric & Mari}

I’ll never forget talking with Eric on the phone about getting engaged and hearing him say, “I figure, we love God and we love each other…that’s all you need right?” Well, let me think about that… umm, yep pretty much!

I knew when I first met Mari that she was someone special, that she was likely going to have a permanent place in our family. You see, Eric is my brother in-law. David’s younger brother- lover of fried chicken, obscure music, the occasional 14er or mountain biking adventure and now… deeply in love with Mari. They met through their church in Denver, which I give my mother in-law all the credit for. She’s been telling him for years “I bet you’ll meet a sweet girl at church…” and she was right! Mari walked into Eric’s life and it was game over. They’ve been inseparable ever since and I couldn’t be happier about it. Mariana is from Costa Rica and we were all so lucky to have her family fly out and join us for the wedding day! It was a beautiful day that showed how 2 families can unite, even when 3,000+ miles separate them.

Eric and Mari opted for an intimate gathering at Sapphire Point, overlooking Lake Dillon in Summit County, followed by dinner in Dillon. We were all a bit nervous about the weather…the clouds had been building all day and you could see storms raging off in the distance. Sure enough, just as the processional began, the snow/sleet/rain/hail starting falling. So true to Colorado! But with big risks come big rewards, like the beautiful sunset we got at the end of the day. It was so beautiful watching the low clouds settle as the storm slowly departed with the sunset. David and I had a wonderful day celebrating with family and welcoming our new sister-in law to the family. We love you guys so much!:)



I promise David doesn’t typically photobomb the bride and groom 😉

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!
