Destination Colorado Adventure Elopement | Rocky Mountain National Park Photographers | Christy + Ben

Destination Colorado Adventure Elopement | Rocky Mountain National Park Photographers


OHHHHH where do I even begin with Christy + Ben. These come to Colorado to elope this summer, but this story begins before they were even actually engaged. I received an email from Christy last fall that mentioned three very important things *to me*

1. her boyfriend, Ben hadn’t yet proposed but they wanted to make sure that they got “a bomb photographer” first and foremost

2. tacos + margaritas. *uhm yes, hello and welcome*

3. they would be working with one of my favorite videographers on their weekday elopement in RMNP

We continued emailing over the next few months, and she’d check in just to tell me, ” oh hey we’re going to some beautiful destination, fingers crossed this is it!” I must’ve gotten at least 2 of those emails fully thinking, “oh man, this is it, he’s finally going to propose!” But alas, on a january trip to the Bahamas, after feeding stingrays on the beach, Ben asked Christy to marry him, and…she never told me if she said yes or not, she just sent me this photo:

which now, based on the fact that i watched them get married, we can all assume that she did, indeed say yes 🙂

They flew to come visit me… aka get their engagement photos a couple months later, taken in some of my faaaaavorite locations in Colorado. we drank the worlds most delicious cider, drove for approximately 100 years into the middle of nowhere, and only got lost like…twice.

This was just the very beginning of the magic of a friendship that I now share with these two even from across the country. Our love of the office, reaaaaaal good cider, and screaming “thats what she said” jokes across mountain tops has formed an untouchable bond. I love these two SO much. so much.
