Fall Moraine Park Amphitheater Wedding | Alexa + Jason

Posted On | October 22, 2022

Alexa and Jason met on Bumble. After talking online for a full month, they decided to finally meet in person. Their first date involved bowling, ice cream, and stargazing at Horsetooth while talking to the wee hours.
Alexa knew Jason was the one because she never met someone who treated her with such kindness and respect. Jason fell in love because Alexa is pure kindness.
Their Rocky Mountain National Park wedding was a day you read about in books. Despite the persistent wind, these two didn’t let anything get in the way of truly spending their wedding day how they wanted to – surrounded by their close family and friends in the stunning Rocky Mountains.
Alexa told me from the beginning how she dreamed of having their first dance at the top of a mountain – and the hike up to Dream Lake did not disappoint. (Best tip from this couple? Bring a pair of wireless headphones so you can each wear one and truly soak in your first dance just the two of you).
Thank you for trusting me to help you plan and capture your perfect day. Even more, thank you for trusting your gut and doing what felt like you, even though the road was windy to get there. Enjoy every ounce of married life!

It’s hard to put into words how amazing Larissa is at We, The Light Photography. She was so much more than just our wedding day photographer. Larissa was super hands-on with the process from beginning to end. She sent us a full guide of locations we could choose from that would fit the vision setting we were imagining for our wedding day. She helped us obtain the appropriate wedding permits for our wedding at Moraine Park and was the best support throughout the year of planning. There were a few times I called her with a change in plans and she helped me stick to the vision I originally wanted for our wedding and empowered me to trust my gut. She was an amazing resource even before we met for our wedding day.

On our wedding day, we both felt so comfortable with her. My husband often feels awkward in front of the camera, but she made him feel like she wasn’t even there taking photos which really helped him just enjoy the day together. She completely took all the stress off my plate with worrying if we’d have enough time to do everything we wanted to do on our wedding day. I never once felt rushed the whole day and I felt like we truly got to soak up every moment with our friends and family at the ceremony.

We enjoyed our hike with Larissa so much and she was such a fun addition to our day. Hiking Dream Lake with my husband in our wedding attire was a dream come true and something that wouldn’t have felt so seamless without Larissa.

Larissa let us know we would receive a sneak peak of our wedding photos within a week of our wedding day. We were completely shocked when she sent us our sneak peak just 48 HOURS after our wedding day. We both gasped when we saw the first photo. It was absolutely breathtaking and we couldn’t believe these were OUR photos! As we continued to scroll through the 40+ beautiful images, we were instantly transported back to our special day. She truly captured the love and emotion of that day from not just my husband and I but also our family and friends as well.

I have nothing but positive and glowing things to say about Larissa. I would recommend her to anyone, but especially for couples looking to go a less traditional route with their wedding day. She truly made us feel so special and well taken care of through the whole process. We will treasure our memories and photos of our day for years to come thanks to her.
