We always jump at the chance to photograph most destination weddings but we were even more excited when we heard this wedding was going to be just outside of Rocky Mountain National Park in Allenspark, Colorado! We are also nature and wildlife photographers so when we combine them both it is always a plus! Check our our work if you want Nature's Album. We also were the wedding photographers for Jessica's uncle's destination wedding in Sedona a few years back, which made us want the opprotunity to photograph Jessica and Darwin's wedding even more.
The day before the wedding we met up with Darwin and Jessica in Rocky Mountain National Park to do their engagement shoot. We had so much fun getting to know the couple and the fun loving personalities. It also happened to be the only day they were getting to explore the National Park, so we d enjoyed playing tour guide and taking them all around the Park. They weren't truly prepared for how cold it can get up at the top of Trail Ridge Roar but they were troopers and hung with out a complaint for the intire shoot.
Once we dropped them off over in Estes Park we had to do the drive back up over Trail Ridge Road to Grand Lake which is where we always stayevery time we come to Rocky Mountain National Park, if you want the info on a great cozy cabin in Grand Lake let us know!! We also had are dog Kiva with us and she feels like the cabin is her second home.
We then woke up early the next morning to make the grueling drive back to AllensPark the next morning to photograph their wedding. That will be coming up in the next post.
