Desert Elopement Photos - Great Sand Dunes National Park - Elopement Photographer

Mosca, Colorado

Brittany and Eric’s wedding session in the dunes looked a lot different than their engagement photoshoot! One of my favorite things about Colorado is that we can have drastically different looks in the same locations. I LOVE the moody clouds and overcast skies that we had for this session. It brought out the gorgeous brown tones of the sand (which I love!) and Brittany’s freaking gorgeous wedding dress really stood out!

At the end of the day the clouds parted and we caught the last light of an amazing sunset, which lit up the Sangre de Cristo mountain range behind us. It was a spectacular sunset and a perfect end to a very sweet elopement style wedding photoshoot.
