I was so incredibly excited when Cole and Jessica reached out about eloping near Ouray, Colorado. Jessica explained that she wanted something easy, and something that felt like “us”. After they filled out their questionnaire, I sent over a custom location list near Ouray that was based on their answers. They pulled the trigger on this hidden basin just outside of Ouray for their solemnizing elopement!
On the morning of, we met before sunrise and set out for our hike up to the secluded basin. We hiked under the stars before arriving at the breathtaking alpine lake at sunrise. The entire basin was lit up in alpenglow as they got changed for their first look. They played “rock, paper, scissors” to decide who went first and shared their private vows with their puppy and some epic alpine lake reflections!
We then explored the basin and took some photos as they shared a picnic and capped it off by jumping into the alpine lake! These two absolutely rocked it and we all packed up feeling like we were long lost friends.
The day was full of laughter, joy, and memories. Every part of the day felt so organic and so wonderful! I couldn’t think of a better place for a self-solemnizing elopement than Ouray, Colorado!
My name is Sean, and I can’t wait to help create your Colorado adventure elopement! I’m a Colorado-based free spirit who has dedicated my life to exploring this wild world and connecting to the people in it.
I know firsthand what an important and personal decision this is—my wife and I eloped to Northern Ireland. You’re trusting me to capture this amazing day, and I make it my responsibility to make sure you have an incredible experience from start to finish.
My passion has led me here, where I can follow my heart and share my love for the outdoors with others on their wedding day. It’s truly an awesome experience, and I’m stoked every time I get to document your day.
When I’m not photographing couples, I love to go exploring with my wife and our corgi. Our dream is to own an Airstream and take Vows and Peaks on the road!
Sound like the perfect match? Reach out so we can get started on your epic elopement!
