Hi there and welcome to my blog! Here in this little slice of the internet you will find recent posts from elopements and intimate weddings that I have photographed. Occasionally I will also post a few pictures from my travels and mountains adventures with my husband. This is a great place to dig through the archives and look for locations, inspiration and ideas for your wedding. Thanks for taking the time to stop by! :)

Garden of the Gods Elopement {Michael & Madison}

Can you think of a better backdrop for a romantic elopement ceremony than Garden of the Gods? I can’t! Madison and Michael allowed me to chose the final spot for their intimate ceremony since they were from out of town. It was a tough choice with so much natural beauty around us! I even enlisted a little help from my Instagram and Facebook followers! Eventually, I settled on this beautiful and private location with Pike’s Peak and Garden of the Gods in the background. It was such a breathtaking view from where the ceremony was held, I just knew this was the spot.

We had a “perfect storm” of circumstances which lead to these beautiful images: beautiful late afternoon lighting, a couple very much in love, a gorgeous backdrop, relaxed atmosphere, warm weather and the absence of logistical problems that often accompany large weddings. 😉 In the end, I think these photos reflect what a wonderful time Madison and Michael had together! Thank you guys so much for allowing me to document such an important moment in your life! And Michael, thank you so much for your service to our country, I wish you all the best in your upcoming deployment!

We can not thank you enough for making this day so special for Madison and Michael. Not only is your photography artistic and breath-takingly beautiful, the images you captured will be life long keepsakes for our family. In addition, your recommendations for the ceremony location, the florist and the restaurant for dinner were all superb. Thank you for making this special day so perfect for all of us.
