Maroon Bells Elopement | Colorado Mountain Wedding Photographers | Julie + Justin

June 12, 2017

Maroon Bells Colorado Elopement | Colorado Mountain Wedding Photographers

I started off the first day of June in the most wonderful way possible!

I picked up Julie’s bouquet from Plumsage Florals Denver studio, headed up to Silverthorne to photograph an engagement session, then trekked up Independence Pass to Aspen to photograph two of the most down to earth people and the love they share.

Julie + Justin road tripped all the way up to Colorado, put their wedding attire on together and ventured out to the Maroon Bells in Aspen, Colorado with me to document their marriage. Julie + Justin had planned on getting married in this exact spot on this day, but as military life happens (they’re both in the Coast Guard!) and they had to head to the courthouse in Texas to make things official a little sooner than planned. Luckily we were still able to capture such sweet and intimate moments in the spot they originally wanted to say their
” I Do’s”.

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful, sun-drenched morning. We spent a few hours talking future travel plans (they’re last stop on this epic trip is Alaska, with stops in some beautiful spots along the way!), they shared their first dance as husband + wife at the foot of Maroon Lake,  saw a moose graze his way around the hills and welcomed tons of well wishes and congratulations from tourists.

If you’re wondering if you should pack your bags, grab the love of your life, and profess your love in a place that is too beautiful for words…the answer is YES. do it.

and bring me with you!

p.s. Justin’s ring is made out of Deer Antler + Whiskey Barrel Wood…so ya know. that might be the coolest thing ever

BEHIND THE LENS

MEET BRittany

Photographer, mother, eternal optimist - most inspired by music, the great outdoors, and you.

I’m Brittany! mother to a couple blue-eyed, wicked smart kids– tattoo haver – red lipstick wearer – total moment junkie – married to the actual best person on planet earth – whatever the opposite of a green-thumb is *r.i.p every plant i’ve ever owned*
eternally optimistic. perpetually cold. hair + makeup artist. still-storyteller. beholder of beauty. colorado native with a heart that is set on fire in the great outdoors.
lover and documentarian of life + love (and everything that comes along with it)

Tell-tale signs that I may be a good fit for you and your love: 
because you’re a night-owl and a morning person, because you enjoy the quiet sound of snow falling. because you find inspiration in just about anything. because you like your music loud and your hugs long. because you’re a big fan of the written word. because it’s never too late for things like “i love you’s” and a piece (or 3) of dark chocolate. because kitchens and living rooms make for the best dancing. because honesty. because flowers for no reason at all. because love is big and wonderful and important and the most beautiful choice you get to make. because kindness.because netflix marathons. because tears from hard laughter.because hard work feels good. because friends who feel like family. because spontaneous road trips to anywhere. because gifs and baby animals. 
because viewing my work makes you feel almost as happy as I feel creating it.
and because to me, telling your unique story, capturing your day, would be an honor.
If your love is BIG fat loud messy, imperfectly perfect, hilarious, dreamy, mountain moving, almost annoying its so good, kind of love. You get me and I get you. Love is a big deal and documenting all the big and seemingly tiny moments, is what I do best. 

Whether you’re celebrating with a big affair or keeping it intimate with an elopement, capturing YOUR kind of love is what I strive for.
