Great Sand Dunes National Monument Elopement

Mosca, Colorado

Kaitlyn and Doug returned to the Sand Dunes for their elopement photos and we had such an amazing time and the most epic views. The Dunes is known for it’s bright and direct sunlight and I loved the pure “bluebird” day we had at the beginning of our session. We barely missed the oncoming rain at the end! Doug swept Kaitlyn up into his arms to cross the small seasonal stream and the rain behind them on the Sangre de Cristo mountains was an absolute dream!
