Colorado based wedding & elopement photography (for nature lovers)
Snowy Dream Lake Engagement - Rocky Mountain National Park Wedding Photographer
Estes Park, Colorado
I met Alecia and Jorge through my friend Alice (featured here on a snowy elopement shoot) and since they were recently engaged we decided to get together for an epic sunrise photoshoot in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Any couple that is willing to get up when it’s dark and hike in 20 degree weather are heroes in my book- and I was so excited that Alecia and Jorge were up for the adventure! Early spring in the mountains is still basically winter, but we made it to Dream Lake on our snowshoes and crampons.
The wind can be really unpredictable at that altitude, and as soon as we arrived we realized that it was going to be way too windy for any comfortable photos. I snapped a few of Alecia and Jorge laughing and cuddling and we quickly did an about-face to spot that was protected from the wind. I LOVE the views at this second spot and I just adore the photos we came away with.
Alecia and Jorge, thank you for the adventure! I loved exploring with you!
