Rocky Mountain National Park Elopement Photographer | Steph & Michelle

Michelle and Steph’s Rocky Mountain National Park wedding are what elopement dreams are made of.  These Nebraskans found 3M Curve online and decided it would be the perfect backdrop for their ceremony.  Their parents were there to witness the beautiful, simple ceremony, and then we headed farther into the park for some portraits.  I love how flexible elopements can be since there generally isn’t a timeline to stick to, so when the rain came through right as we set out for some photos, we were able to wait it out without adding any stress or shortening our time for portraits.  And…it provided the perfect post-storm backdrop to our photos…  These two were up for anything, so we were able to get some beautiful, epic photos of this monumental day in their lives!

We hopped out of the car to start photos, and the cold wind followed by raindrops told us to wait a bit longer…

…and then we were able to work with the perfect post-rain backdrop, light and calmness…

Mother Nature sent a little love our way in the form of a rainbow!

Austyn - Goodness gracious Jackie. These are stunning! Please take me to this place!!! Everything about this is so breath taking. Congratulations to the Steph + Michelle!!

Jackie Cooper - Thanks, girl!

Alicia Day - These pictures are stunning!! We’re looking at eloping in this area as well, if you don’t mind me asking, where is that grassy Rocky lookout where they took pictures located at? It’s just magical!! ❤

Jackie Cooper - Thank you, Alicia! RMNP is magical in so many ways. This spot was along Trail Ridge Road, though I can’t remember exactly where (we just cruised the road and hopped out for photos at this spot). I know that as of this season RMNP is getting more strict on where you can have your ceremony and take photos, so it may be worth checking with your photographer to find out all the current rules and regulations so she/he can help you find the perfect locations! Congratulations!
