COLORADO INTIMATE ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER
When you talk about a dream adventure elopement, there are many places that come into the conversation. There are so many incredible places to consider. Being a Colorado adventure elopement photographer, I am fortunate enough to live in one of the places that is always at the top of the conversation list. But another place that is ALWAYS brought up as one of the most epic place to get married is IRELAND. So when Jessica contacted me about engagement photos and mentioned that they were getting married in Ireland... I was like "HEY! I COULD go to Ireland with you!!!!" They were originally going to work with a photographer included in their 'elopement package' through their planning company.... but instead Chris and Jessica talked it over and decided that they wanted. Jessica said "It truly would be a dream come true to have you shoot our wedding!" and Chris said "sounds good to me". So that's how it started. And it ended with us all eating dinner together in a pub across the Atlantic after sharing an incredible day together. Actually, scratch that... it ended the next day when I dropped off some extra Claritin to Chris and Jessica who were both having some major allergies. Our wedding planner and officiant Riona was telling us about the major 'pollen bomb' they were having... she wasn't wrong!
I met them that morning at their Air BnB where Chris and Jess were spending the morning together. Two of the biggest positives of choosing to elope are that 1. You get SO much quality time together and 2. You make your own rules. If that means you want to get ready together, that means you get ready together. So after photographing the getting ready process, the details and Chris and Jessica's morning together... we made Chris get dressed and then he headed over to the pub where Chris and Jessica would do their first look so Jessica could put on her wedding dress and her finishing touches with Riona and I.
