A COLORADO POST WEDDING MOUNTAIN SESSION AT GUANELLA PASS

When Michael reached out to me about doing a spot wedding shoot in the mountains for him and Gretchen, I was so excited!! They got married in Denver, so they wanted to do a shoot in their wedding attire after the wedding in an epic mountain location. Guanella Pass in Georgetown is one of my favorite spots for elopements, engagement sessions, and intimate weddings, so I knew it would be a perfect spot to take them. We had so much fun running around Guanella Pass and checking out a bunch of different spots. It was super secluded and we pretty much had the whole mountain to ourselves!

I love when couples do sessions after their wedding in their wedding attire because.. why not?! It’s always so much fun to play dress up and get those epic mountain photos you may have missed on your wedding day. Plus, your wedding dress is way to expensive to wear only once anyways. ;) Another reason I love “day after” sessions/post wedding shoots is that it takes the pressure off the actual wedding day to get all the portraits you want. Besides your wedding day, how often do you have 100 of your closest friends and family members all together to celebrate YOU? (Hint - NEVER!) A day after session kind of gives you that piece of mind on your wedding day so you can soak in every moment you can of the day celebrating with your people, knowing you’ll get more awesome portraits in your wedding attire soon! And you won’t be worried about getting your dress a little dirty. ;)

If you’re planning a wedding or elopement in Colorado or anywhere else, reach out!!! I’d love to tag along on your adventure.


”We hired Alyssa to do a post-wedding shoot in the mountains and could not be more thrilled with the results. She took the time to listen and understand what we were hoping to capture, proposed beautiful locations, and gave just the right amount of direction to let our personalities shine through. We are both so pleased with the photos we received!” - Gretchen

AN INTIMATE ASPEN WEDDING AT THE LITTLE NELL

When Cortney and Jesse first reached out about me being their Aspen, Colorado wedding photographer for their wedding at The Little Nell, I was so excited! Being a Colorado wedding and elopement photographer takes me to a lot of beautiful places in this state, but The Little Nell is definitely one of my favorite mountain wedding venues in Aspen! Cortney and Jesse’s intimate wedding at The Little Nell in Aspen was the most beautiful day, filled with so much love.

The Little Nell is one of my favorite venues in Aspen to be a Colorado wedding photographer at because I love that you get to take the gondola up to the top of the mountain for the ceremony! It is always such a fun experience for everyone, especially all of the out of town guests. The views from the top are incredible and like nothing I have ever seen before. It is seriously such a special place to get married!

Cortney and Jesse had the most beautiful ceremony on top of the Aspen wedding deck at The Little Nell, followed by the most fun, relaxed dinner and reception. Having done their engagement session in Boulder last fall, it was so much fun to be a part of their wedding too and get to celebrate with all of their closest friends and family!

If you’re planning a wedding at The Little Nell or looking for an Aspen wedding photographer for another venue in Colorado, or anywhere else in the world, contact me! I’d love to be a part of your day and help you plan something epic!

Shout out to all the awesome vendors who made this day so magical:

AN ASPEN ANNIVERSARY SESSION

Rob & Ellen’s anniversary session in Aspen was one of my favorites ever. Aspen is one of my favorite places in Colorado for a destination mountain elopement, wedding, or engagement/anniversary session! There are so many awesome venues and locations to get married at, and this was one of my favorite locations!

When we were planning out their session, I was already going to be in Aspen for a few elopements and weddings that week, and I was so excited when they said they were down to come out celebrate their anniversary there that week too!! We spent the evening running all around Independence Pass and checking out different locations on the way. I had never been before and we didn’t really have a plan, and it worked out so perfectly. I LOVE when couples are up for anything and ready to just make it a good time and go with the flow!

Rob and Ellen didn’t write personal vows at their wedding, so thought it would be the perfect thing to do for their first anniversary. We waited until sunset and then they wore their wedding attire and exchanged the most thoughtful, sweet vows to each other. It was so special to be a part of. I love when couples make their session more of an experience and incorporate something special to them into it rather than just photos. We got the prettiest sunset that night on the top of the mountain, and it couldn't have been any more perfect!!

If you’re looking for a wedding or elopement photographer in Colorado or anywhere else in the world, contact me!! I would love to help you plan something epic and third wheel on your adventure!

AN INTIMATE WEDDING AT SAPPHIRE POINT IN BRECKENRIDGE, COLORADO

Amanda and Jeff’s intimate wedding at Sapphire Point in Breckenridge, Colorado was one of the sweetest, most beautiful days ever!! Sapphire Point is a GORGEOUS mountain with views of all the mountains and Lake Dillon. It is one of my favorite spots in Colorado for an elopement or intimate wedding!

Amanda had reached out on Instagram when she started planning her wedding here in Colorado and we connected immediately, and I am so thankful to call these two not only awesome clients but even better friends. It was so special being a part of their day and getting to shoot their engagement session and wedding.

Their wedding was so beautiful, laid back, and full of love. We started the day getting ready at the cutest little AirBnb in Breckenridge, and then all headed to the ceremony! After the ceremony, we hiked all around Sapphire Point taking photos and having the best time. After we were done at Sapphire Point, we headed back to their AirBnb for dinner and a party! Even though my coverage had ended, they invited me back to their reception as a guest and it was so fun getting to know their family and celebrate with everyone!! I am seriously the luckiest girl in the world to work with the best couples ever who welcome me into their day as not a photographer or vendor, but a friend.

A ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK 3M CURVE ELOPEMENT

Abby + Wes had the most beautiful elopement in Rocky Mountain National Park this summer, and I feel so grateful to have been a part of it. Abby and Wes exchanged vows and had an intimate ceremony surrounded by their closest friends and family at 3M curve. After the ceremony, we headed up to Trail Ridge Road for portraits and it was MAGICAL. The whole day was so full of love and I may or may not have cried several times throughout their vows. 

When Abby reached out to me out to me about photographing their elopement, we connected immediately and even before talking I knew we would be a great fit. Abby and Wes live in Chicago (where me and my hubby lived for two years!) and had planned out the big traditional wedding there. During their planning they realized it wasn't them or what they wanted, and decided to cancel their wedding back home and come to Colorado to elope in the Rocky Mountains. As much as I love big weddings, they are totally not the right fit for everyone and I love when couples are committed to making their day about them and exactly what their dream wedding is, whatever that might look like. It was so fun to be a part of this time in their lives and help them plan their dream elopement here in Colorado. 

Abby and Wes met when she was the supervisor at the time at their job and on Wes's first day she had to train him. She said they only spent 5 hours together and by the end of the day it felt like they knew each other their whole lives. How freaking sweet is that? They knew from the day they met that they'd get married, and when they came on a trip to Colorado they knew it would be the perfect place to elope. 

From Abby....

"Having Alyssa as our photographer for our wedding was the best decision we could have made!! With our wedding being in CO and us living in Chicago we were a bit nervous but with Alyssa's help we didn't have to worry about a thing. She went above and beyond to help us in every aspect of our wedding. Not to mention, her pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous!! She made everyone in our party feel so calm and relaxed while she was taking pictures! The best decision you will make for your wedding is having Alyssa take your pictures :)"

AN URBAN DOWNTOWN DENVER WEDDING AT MOSS

Natalie and John's wedding at Moss in Downtown Denver was one of my favorite weddings ever to be a part of!! Moss is a super cool rustic venue in Denver with a ton of romantic/unique touches. As much as I love shooting elopements and weddings in the mountains, I LOVE a good city wedding!! If you're looking for a romantic, urban venue in Denver I cannot recommend Moss enough!! 

I met Natalie and John though my husband who works with John, and I am so glad their jobs brought us together!! After we had so much fun at their sunrise engagement session in Rocky Mountain National Park followed by brunch and mimosas, I knew we would be great friends. They are two of the most genuine, fun, down to earth people I have ever met and they are literally the cutest couple ever. John even proposed to Natalie in Italy in front of the Trevi Fountain... like umm okay?! 

Their wedding was such a dream and I am actually so sad to be blogging it and for it to be over. They had the most fun group of friends and family ever, and their day was everything a downtown city wedding should be. It was romantic, so full of love, and SO MUCH FUN!!

I absolutely love working with couples who make their day about them and have fun and enjoy it rather than getting too stressed about the little things. At the end of the day you're marrying your best friend surrounding yourself with all your favorite people in the world, so why not have a blast and make it the most fun day of your life?

Shoutout to all the incredible vendors who made this day so rad:
