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! :)

Della Terra Wedding {Joe & Courtney}

Courtney and Joe had one of the best weddings I’ve ever photographed at this summer! The day was soooo relaxed. Everything was laid back. The whole day was about having a good time with friends and family. No stress, no drama…just fun and happiness. We had the most perfect weather ever too, sunny and 75! No rain, no wind, no crazy mountain lightning storms. We also had a few visits from wildlife throughout the day, including some beautiful deer during the reception. It was the best!

I’m all about simplicity when it comes to weddings. There are so many things you can do to help alleviate stress and logistical nightmares on your wedding day. Things like having a small wedding party, keeping your ceremony and reception at the same location, hiring vendors that have good reputations, starting hair and makeup early in the day and cutting down on the amount of crazy Pinterest craft projects (ok ok, we all need a few Pinterest wedding projects, it just doesn’t have to look like Pinterest took over your entire wedding haha!). Courtney and Joe took advantage of all these things. You can have a wedding that oozes simplicity but it also beautiful, elegant, classy and perfectly reflects who you are as a couple. I think Courtney and Joe should give lessons to other couples on how to achieve this because they did it perfectly!

Joe and Courtney, thank you for being such wonderful and gracious clients. Can I make all of my clients as easy going as you?;-)David and I had such a blast with you and we are so grateful to have gotten to know you and your families. We wish wish you all the best in your future together! Blessings!

Trail Ridge Road Elopement {Joe & Alyson}

I honestly can’t imagine anything more romantic and perfect than eloping on top of Trail Ridge Road at sunrise. I mean seriously, there are virtually zero drawbacks (aside from having to get up ridiculously early in the morning haha)! I love the idea of being awake before everyone else and starting your life together on top of the world. Seriously. Amazing.

Alyson contacted me a couple of days ago and said she and her fiance were thinking of eloping while out in Colorado. They thought Rocky Mountain National Park would be the perfect backdrop. As luck would have it, David and I were planning to hike in RMNP on Sunday, so I was already going to be in the Park. Perfect! Alyson and Joe did things exactly how they wanted. They held their own ceremony and married themselves (did you know you can do that in Colorado? No officiant needed…). They spoke words of promise and love to each other at 12,000 feet. And they decided one of the best ways to celebrate their new marriage was to go for a hike afterwards. Yesss! I love that!

We opted for a sunrise ceremony to help avoid crowds (and the occasional crazy tourist photobomber) and thunderstorms. And it was amazing. There were no people around, no noise, no cars, no rain. Just clear skies, a beautiful sunrise and solitude. It was incredible and I am ever grateful to have been a part of it.
