Madison and David were wed on August 5th, 2017 at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado. It was an honor to be present for their intimate and personal wedding day, surrounded by their immediate family and closest friends. Madison is also a talented photographer, so I loved working with her and collaborating to achieve the wedding day images that she dreamed of. It's always a great honor to be chosen to photograph another photographer's wedding day!
The weather was a bit angsty, so the ceremony was moved inside last-minute: but the sun came back out in glorious splendor at the very end and spilled golden light into the chapel in time for their first kiss as husband and wife. It was a very moving and tender ceremony, full of smiles and tears and hugs. Afterwards, we snapped a few family pictures before heading up to the original ceremony location for some gorgeous blue-hour portraits.
I had an incredible time documenting this beautiful elopement, and loved how Madison and David's families embraced me and included me in their adventures and explorations over the weekend. It's always an honor to photograph any wedding, but something as small and intimate as this feels extra special. Much love for the Chandlers!
