Tarah & Dustin at Lily Lake, Estes Park
Updated: Aug 23
On Sept 10th I had the honor of capturing Tarah and Dustin's elopement at Lily Lake at Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. It was a beautifully intimate ceremony surrounded by the fog from the storm. We had to move it up from 5pm (boy am I glad we did!) but it made for gorgeous snowy/white elopement photos :) I am really happy with the way these turned out at the end. This was also taken with our brand new 24-70mm f2.8 lens so I am happy to report that it did really well.
After their quick ceremony we took some signing photos and spent the rest of the afternoon taking couple portraits around the lake. They were easy going and ready to try any and every pose I threw at them! At some point I attempted to take some photos of their reflection in the water, but it just didn't work out the way I envisioned. Still had pretty photos, though. Scroll below to see some of the previews from their day!
I love when out-of-state couples find assurance that their photo needs will be taken care of. It was a joy helping Tarah navigate the Coloradian special event permit journey and it was well worth it. My favorite part of the day was getting these photos below, and their bouquet wrap (haha, 2020 amirite).
