Backpacking Wedding

Jerrod and Heather had their big wedding cancelled back in Ohio because of Covid. But they weren’t going to let Covid stop them from having a special day! They reached out about doing an backpacking elopement and the wheels were in motion for epicness.

I added backpacking elopements because it’s one of my favorite summer activities and I was stoked when Heather and Jerrod decided they wanted to do this for their big day. It takes a special couple to backpack into the wilderness for their wedding day and these guys were up for the adventure. It’s hard for me to complain when you can combine your passions into your job!

We went over a couple of different routes before settling on an awesome 12-mile backpacking route in the front range. We hiked up and held a first look that night before waking up at sunrise where they shared their vows with some mountain goats as guests! Backpacking weddings are so fun because it’s basically two photoshoots over two days.

You get a sunset session followed by a sunrise portion. It’s really the best of both worlds for your wedding day. It was such an epic adventure and one hell of a backup plan to a canceled wedding!
