.. laced up your boots, ready for majestic woodlands of Evergreens sprinkled with fresh powder squeezed between the peaks….where the towering mountains twinkling with alpine lakes, where the sweeping ridges and airy vistas soar well above the tree line…..hearts dancing, twirling, snuggling….in love no matter what the weather is….it was 7 degrees Fahrenheit when we started our adventure this morning… “see you at the mountain top baby”. Well… here we are. I’ll always be on any mountain top for you. Love always, Your wife” -Adventure Bride
Perhaps this is what this elopement adventure is all about: Trusting in the unknowns, Embracing timeless in the little things, trading traditional of what's certain and expected to Thriving within You and your Love Story. Are you brave enough to saunter? Yes?

My Hygge is...
...spending the adventure day unplugged...hiking above 11,000 feet...
...awaiting that golden, warm sunlight...and the way it feels...kissing my couples souls...at sunrise....
....building the bonfire...and warm snuggles by that warmth...its crackling sounds...that bring us back to those childhood memories...
...the smells of that alpine breeze...that will make your feet dance....barefoot....
and that feel of your feet on the grass.....
...candlelight twinkles....around hot springs....with just two of you....
and those handwritten vows...maybe on the scratch of paper....the honest words...that come alive when we say the words "I DO"...
and sips of coffee on the hiking trail at 4 am...

“I’ve got a thing for the types of people who are undeniably themselves. The ones with messy hair, and even messier souls. The kinds of people who wear their hearts on their chest, and have passion in their tears. I’m obsessed with all the people who have the strength to remain soft and let their fire burn hard. These are the types of people I’m in love with. These are my people.”-k.a.

"We hired an amazing elopement photographer...
didn't know we were walking away with a lifelong friend!"
Cody + Rosie
Do you want amazing, unique photos? Do you like adventure? Do you want a photographer who is passionate about capturing YOUR love story? Well then look no further because Justyna is the photographer for you! We recently hired her as our wedding photographer and had our engagement shoot in Rocky Mountain National Park on Aug. 11th. She met us in the park at 4:30am and we took photographs under the stars. We watched the alpenglow illuminate the peaks. It was such a beautiful, magical experience! Justyna is so fun to work with and the results are seriously perfection!! My fiancé and I could not stop gawking over the them and we are SO excited for her to shoot our wedding next May! I highly recommend that anyone reading this who is looking for a photographer to please invest in yourselves and hire Justyna! You will thank yourself later when you get the pleasure of seeing all the nuances of your love captured on film :)

After months of anticipation the experience actually surpassed our expectations! The photo shoot was exciting, thrilling, and a true adventure. The hours slipped away so quickly. "Time flies when you're having fun!" Justyna was enthusiastic, professional, and really worked hard to get the perfect shots. She was emotionally engaged in her work and vested in ensuring our photos were the best they could be. Her bubbly personality and can-do attitude are particularly suited for the occasion. Overall, we were thrilled with our experience. Working with Justyna was a delight! We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a similar experience

We had the most magical experience eloping with Justyna as our photographer. When we started wedding planning, we both realized a traditional ceremony was not for us. And then we were led to Justyna. We knew right away she was going to be a part of our day. She was wonderful to work with from our first meeting until after our wedding. She was extremely thoughtful, attentive and informative throughout the whole process. She even went out of her way to make recommendations on hiking gear to buy and other wedding vendors to work with. The elopement was one of the most memorable experience of our lives. Justyna was intentional to make us feel very intimate and like it was just us. We walked away with memories (and photos) that will forever be a part of who we are. If you're looking for an intimate, romantic and extremely unique way to get married - Justyna is a work of art!

Very few people in this world surprise me. I can honestly say that Justyna has simply amazed me. I cannot say enough about her professionalism, creativity, and most of all - her character. Justyna photographed my engagement pictures and my wedding. Her work is OUTSTANDING and it speaks for itself. More remarkable than her work is her personality and her integrity. The product aside, I can attest that working with her was remarkable. Justyna is energetic, fun, and passionate. My wife and I felt so comfortable and our experience was delightful - and her work was exceptional. I worked with many vendors to put together my wedding, all of whom did a great job. I had very high expectations and demanded much from the vendors who participated in my wedding. However, by far, my most memorable and impressionable experience was working with Justyna. I felt that Justyna was just as passionate about my experience and my wedding as I was. Her penchant for capturing pure and organic moments is unrivaled. The memories she helped to create are incredible. I cannot say enough about her or her work. As I mentioned before, Justyna’s work is outstanding, but the person is even more amazing. Justyna is a gifted photographer with an incredible ability to connect with people.
