Katelin and Tyler actually live in Louisiana, but getting married in the Rocky Mountains was super important to them. These two are active adventurers at heart. They love hiking and rock climbing, and being outdoors is just a part of who they are. We decided to do something a little different on their wedding day, and opted to start their wedding coverage with some mountain engagement photos before they changed into their wedding attire to say their vows.
Personally, I love how these mountain engagement photos really helped loosen them up and have a chance to play in front of the camera before they began the rest of their day. There’s something so inherently fun and playful about adventure sessions like this one. It’s this reminder that being in front of the camera doesn’t need to be scary or nerve-wracking at all. It can literally be just you and your partner adventuring in the mountains…hiking, climbing, running. The only difference is I’m here to document it.
These two were up for all the adventures and ideas I had, from climbing and scrambling up a bunch of boulders to get to the most epic mountain view to lounging in the gorgeous forested area right beside the lake. I remember Katelin and Tyler telling me several months ago that they were awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera, but if there’s one thing I learned from documenting these two and their mountain engagement photos, it’s that there’s nothing awkward about capturing two people vibing in their element.
P.S. As an adventure elopement and adventure engagement photographer, I pride myself on not just documenting your mountain engagement photos or small mountain wedding, but helping you navigate the little details as well — like helping you figure out the perfect time of year and best locations for your mountain engagement session.
