When Zach and Mayra reached out about their elopement, they told me they wanted to include their families and friends. These are some of my favorite elopements because the couples can still fill their sense of adventure while including their loved ones. So I was super excited to go over a couple different options with them in Grand Lake, Colorado!
We went over a couple different hiking locations for their first look and a ceremony spot near Grand Lake before settling on a stunning alpine lake for the sunrise session. We hiked up with their pup right as the light was coming over the mountains. We passed some waterfalls and stunning wildflowers before arriving at the lake where they changed for their first look. I absolutely love first looks and this one didn't disappoint! The lake had some amazing reflections and they were all alone for this intimate moment!
We then explored the surrounding area for portrait photos while they popped and drank some bubbles with their dog. It was a really awesome start to a fun day! We set down from the lake where we headed back to Grand Lake for a break before their ceremony in the afternoon. We met back up for the ceremony at a lake where they had their friends and families join them.
I absolutely love days like this and can't thank Zach and Mayra enough for having me be part of their elopement in Grand Lake, Colorado!
