Kelsey & Alex Elope in
Rocky Mountain National Park
This gorgeous couple recently moved from Madison, WI to Colorado and were looking for a hiking elopement photographer in Rocky Mountain National Park. I am so happy we crossed paths because this hiking elopement was EPIC!
These two brides hiking through Colorado made creating amazing photos easy because their excitement was so palpable and they looked stunning together.
Like many couples, Kelsey and Alex’s original wedding plans were curbed due to COVID-19. Their original plan was to have mountain wedding photos in Norway, but 2020 had other plans for them. It seems they couldn’t wait out the pandemic and decided to tie the knot anyway.
Rocky Mountain National Park is such a gorgeous place with way too many hiking trails to choose from. To help decide the best locations, I did a lot of research and found that since COVID-19 the park has implemented a timed entry system. Make sure if you plan on visiting the park, you plan accordingly using their website.
Planning and location scouting is included in all WMP elopement packages. With a little guidance from my couples, I’ll help find the perfect spot to exchange vows and celebrate love to match their vision.
They were up for anything and not at all afraid to hike in their dresses and try new things for these stunning photos!
Hang off the side of the mountain? Why not?
These ladies stayed looking this great the entire time. How is that possible?!

Hiking with a “dress pouch” can be tricky,
but these brides make it look easy.
Alex and Kelsey climbed all over RMNP in full gear.
Planning this trip was so much fun! I made sure to choose a trail with amazing spots along the way to the big finale.

Almost to the dream location.
You really can’t beat the scenery in the Colorado Rockies.
After scoping out the trout fishing, Kelsey and Alex cuddled up in front on this majestic mountain location.
Heck yeah! Kelsey has a mountain tattoo on her foot, so of course we had to go barefoot for a bit!
Their seamstress was a little confused when they showed up to a fitting with hiking boots instead of high heels. Looks perfect to me!
This trip really made me miss living in Colorado. If only I could take everyone I love with me so I could move back.
I guess that means that I’ll have to come back and visit over and over again to photograph more amazing couples!
