Rocky Mountain National Park Elopement Photographers

People First. Photos Second.

Your Elopement Shouldn’t Be About Your Photos

Wait What?

We said what we said. And we mean it.

Instead of an all-day photoshoot with endless posing, fake laughs, and manufactured moments, we prioritize your experience above everything else. 

From the moment we start helping you plan every detail through every glorious second of your wedding day, we prioritize you, your vision, and your relationship, so that anything you want to happen, happens.

When your ‘feels-like-you’ elopement day comes around, you two get to be fully in the moment of frolicking in the mountains, picnicking by a waterfall, or laying under a blanket of stars.

We give you space to genuinely feel all the feels and explore with your adventure partner while we candidly tell the story of how you got married. 

When you prioritize being fully present in the moment over capturing the “perfect” image, THAT is where the magic happens. Those images so full of emotion and realness that you can’t help but feel the moment that was captured? That’s the result of putting people first, photos second. Always.

Your photos should be about your wedding day, not the other way around.

We Do all the Heavy Lifting

Here’s How We make this easier than “accidentally” binge-watching the newest season of your favorite show

1. Get to know you as friends to truly understand your vision

2. Research and scout to find the perfect location for you to tie the knot

3. Find the coolest lodging options in the area

4. Connect you with vetted LGBTQ+ affirming local elopement vendors

5. Answer any and all questions along the way (including how to pack your dress)

6. Create a stress-free timeline for the day (and be your day-of-coordinator)

7. Built-in back-up photographer you can trust (since we are a team!)

“absolutely worth every penny 2x over”

“Bailey was absolutely incredible. She went a million miles above what my husband and I were hoping for with our elopement. We’re from out of state, so Bailey saved my BUTT with all of her (spot on) vendor recommendations, location recommendations/guidelines, and flexibility when working with us. She was just as much our planner as our photographer, and I cannot emphasize enough how amazing that was. Literally everything she suggested to us was exactly the right choice, and it came to the point where I was 100% trusting every decision she was suggesting, and we hadn’t even met yet!

Not only is she incredibly trustworthy and knowledgeable, but she is literally the sweetest person ever!! My husband is rather socially anxious, and the immediate deciding factor between Bailey and another photographer was that Bailey immediately made us both feel at ease and like we had known each other for years. She’s so good with people. Bailey is absolutely worth every penny 2x over, and you will not regret working with her on your special day. If you’re in between two photographers, CHOOSE BAILEY!!!”

Hey There, Hey!

We’re two born and raised Coloradoans who have spent our whole lives camping, hiking, and exploring every corner of this state.

Larissa (left) is the person who always chimes a smiley “hi!” on the hiking trail.

Bailey (right) is the person who will absolutely cry at your wedding.

Together we’ve planned and photographed over 250 elopements in Colorado, collectively been to 46 countries, and agree that cracking a local beer around a campfire is the best way to end a day.

“There are a ton of really talented photographers. What makes you different?”

We’re so glad you asked!

We’re Born and Raised in Colorado.

We’re not ones to brag, but when it comes to Colorado, we’re kiiiiinda experts. We have spent our whole lives camping, hiking, and exploring every corner of Colorado and have fostered solid relationships with other local elopement vendors. We know of epic locations that you won’t find on AllTrails, and have a deep understanding of the quirky things you need to keep in mind when planning your wedding here: weather patterns, seasonal closures, high altitudes, and wildlife.

We’ve Photographed a Crap-Ton of Elopements.

250+ to be precise. We know what to do when it rains, when wildfires change your plans, and use our vast experience as a sounding board as you plan your elopement.

Lots of Photographers are in it for Publications and Taking Epic Shots. We’re In It For You.

Our first priority is always your experience. The most epic, heartfelt, jaw-dropping images are created when you’re fully present in the moment, experiencing the best freaking day of your life. We’re here to document your memories, not create content for our portfolio.

We’re Pretty Fun.

We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We want to celebrate with you, and not just be a bystander following you around with a camera. We care about YOU and work to foster a relationship that goes beyond your wedding day.

We Capture Real, Raw Moments.

The perfect photo is overrated. We tell your story with all of the goofiness, imperfection, emotion, and realness it entails.

The Proof Is In The Pudding

She somehow knows the perfect moments right before they happen and is able to save those for you forever

“The content she captures will make you cry. Larissa was able to capture so many unique moments of our day, so many genuine squinty-eyed smiles, or big belly laughs, or sweet looks between my husband and I. She somehow knows the perfect moments right before they happen and is able to save those for you forever.

Sure you will get the traditional posed photos that your grandma loves, and any photographer can pose you so it LOOKS genuine, but Larissa is different. She instead helps you shift your focus onto what really matters for the day, for me that was my husband, and guides you until you have forgotten all else going on around you and you’re dancing together with your hair falling out and laughing so hard you might pee, and then she captures THAT moment. Not posed, not even fake posed, just guides you into relaxing into the moment so she can capture the true love.

Now THAT is a talent!”
