Rocky Mountain National Park Elopement: Ali & Ryan

December 31, 2018


A few months ago, one of my close friends and fellow photographer besties moved to Colorado. Even before she moved, we started to dream up an idea of planning/capturing a styled shoot in the mountains! What began as just a photoshoot idea, thanks to Instagram, it turned into the dreamiest REAL wedding. We brought in my fav wedding coordinator, Sara Elizabeth Weddings and together, created the ultimate destination elopement for an incredibly deserving couple. Ali + Ryan, thank you for trusting our vision and allowing us to document your day!

Kerri and Tim

In speaking and planning with Courtney before our big day, she was kind, thoughtful, helpful, and relatable. She everyone feel so at ease the day of our wedding. Not only did she capture us having the best day of our lives, but the smiles on our faces throughout the day as they filmed solidified our feelings — it really was such a great day!
