Becky Young Photography {THE BLOG} bio picture
  • Hi there and welcome to the Becky Young Photography blog! I am a mountain loving wedding 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! :)

Rocky Mountain Elopement {Troy & Kate}

I will just never get over the beauty, simplicity and peace that’s involved with these Rocky Mountain elopements. I honestly couldn’t ask for anything more than to be able to document days like this one. My job is such a blessing, I’m so very very grateful!

Anyone who has spent a day or two in Summit County, knows that the weather is always a gamble. No matter what precautions you take (morning ceremony, having a backup plan etc.) you’re at the mercy of the weather every time. There will always be risk. But as they say, with great risk comes great reward. Well, let’s just say Troy and Kate gambled and hit the jackpot.

They opted for a late afternoon ceremony in Copper Mountain’s precious little chapel, which was a smart move for several reasons.  As they said “I do” thunder boomed all around us and the skies opened up, bringing on one fierce thunderstorm. They exchanged vows in an intimate setting, with only their closest family and friends with them. We were all so grateful to be warm and dry inside, while the storm raged outside. What a blessing!

As luck would have it, just after their ceremony concluded, the sun came out and we were blessed with one of the most gorgeous evenings I’ve ever seen. It was the perfect combination of beautiful locations, beautiful lighting and undeniable chemistry between Troy and Kate. I’m not sure I could take better photos if I tried! All because we took a gamble and braved the storm. It doesn’t hurt when your clients are nature lovers and willing to go wherever for photos, even if it means a little trek through the woods.

Troy and Kate, thanks so much for rolling with the punches and braving the weather with me! I’m grateful for your willingness to trust me with locations and timing! You guys were a dream to work with, I was so delighted to spend the evening with you! I hope you enjoy the rest of your time out here in Colorado!

Summit County Wedding {Kerry & Allie}

Ahhh if only I were so lucky to have a beautiful mountain home like this one. A place of rest and peace, beautiful views and nature right out my front door. And to serve as the perfect spot for my wedding, of course! I love when my clients are able to use their home, or a family member’s private home as the backdrop for their nuptials. It brings a sense of intimacy, familiarity and comfort to get married at a place that hold special meaning to you. Allie and Kerry were blessed to have their wedding on this gorgeous property and I was lucky enough to be there for it.

We took a chance with the weather and we were rewarded big time! The rain held off until just before Allie and Kerry’s reception began. The sun even peeked out just as the ceremony ended. Luckily, just about everyone was warm and dry in the tent before the downpour settled in! Sometimes when storms roll through, we get really lucky with unique lighting and that was definitely the case for Allie and Kerry! We had the privilege of hopping around to various locations for their pictures together. What beautiful images we were able to capture!

Kerry and Allie, thank you so much for allowing me to come along side you and document your beautiful wedding day. It was an honor and a privilege to get to know you and your families. I wish you all the happiness in the world!

Wedding at Dry Gulch Placer {Kyle & Genina}

I can’t wait to share this awesome Breckenridge wedding with you! Kyle and Genina chose Dry Gulch Placer to be the backdrop for their beautiful mountain wedding in Breckenridge and I honestly can’t think of a more perfect place! If you love Colorado, mountain views, mining history and feeling like you stepped back in time, this is the perfect place to get married!

I love the rustic charm and natural beauty that surrounds this beautiful venue! And I love all the personal touches Kyle and Genina included in their wedding. These guys are serious foodies and good food was a really important aspect of their weddings. So important, they had everything prepared from scratch by their amazing friends (who also happen to be professional chefs!). I loved their DIY soda bar, so fun! And can we talk about the sunset they got at the end of the night? Amazing! Oh, and the mountain goats on top of the wedding cake? I’m officially obsessed, those are the cutest cake toppers I’ve ever seen!:-)

Congrats Kyle and Genina, Andrea had an amazing time working with you!
