I must be one of the luckiest COLORADO ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHERS. Just like 2017  2018 has gone has gone in a blink of an eye and YOU WERE A DREAM! As featured on Wandering Weddings, Rocky Mountain Bride,  and so much more.

50 unique adventures...

As a result, 50 heart-melting love stories....

That is to say, 100 adventurous souls took this unique path in 2018...

" laced up your boots, ready for majestic woodlands of Evergreens and though the wildflower meadows 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.....50 100 hearts dancing, twirling, other wordsin love. 


To all my ADVENTUROUS ELOPEMENTS and INTIMATE WEDDINGS COUPLES this year: Above all, YOU ARE MY INSPIRATION! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for trust, my vision, and thank you for sharing YOUR LOVE + PASSION with me!

It was a true honor to be able to document YOU+ YOUR STORY+ YOUR UNIQUE DETAILS when you were dancing in the rain on the top of the Trail Ridge Road and suddenly we witnessed a rainbow, listening to the beating hearts in love and the wind

...hiking the alpine tundra of Colorado Rockies, exchanging the vows on a green knoll surrounded by the rolling Yosemite National Park sandstone giants, exploring the sandy beaches of US coasts, and those windy mountain tops of Polish Tatra Mountains that take your breath away, mesmerized by the rocky cliffs of San Juan Mountains.


Waking up at 2am to hit the unbeaten paths just to find your own soul.




Adventure seeking Lovers #choosemountains for unforgettable alpine memories....the windswept messy hair, the silence of nature brings their souls peace,makes them truly alive....mountains are for adventure lovers♥️?

And It is reflection time for me...for my adventures with you...taking next two weeks off...spending quality time with my love silence signing of...till 2019.

Above all, I believe we all need it....silence helps us to find ourselves...there will be more snuggles....more connected conversations...and more epic mountain drives...away....not shared...but rather lived?❄️?♥️living in a moment...hope you do the same♥️?

And then 2019 is calling for WALES, POLAND, HAWAII....more epic unbeaten paths in COLORADO, and still dreaming to shoot in ICELAND, OREGON, and go back to WASHINGTON!
