THERE Are NO SILLY IDEAs, THERE ARE NO LIMITS TO WHAT YOU CAN or can't DO.
As your elopement photographer, I'm just here along for the ride. cheering you on, helping you include everything you want your elopement to have...then I DOCUMENT it all.
I've hiked and camped this gorgeous state since I moved here from Wisconsin 10 years ago. I have lists and lists of amazing locations to pull from to help you find your perfect elopement spot. I customize your list based on the vibes you and your honey love (mountain view, alpine lake, etc).
Google is endless. I'm here to help you avoid the stress of sifting through pages on the internet and thousands of hashtags on IG. I send over awesome, trustworthy vendors that are local to the area of Colorado you guys choose to get married in.
You get a personalized timeline to help us stay on track so we don't miss any important parts of your day. I take care of the boring (but important) stuff and process any necessary permits so we can avoid the drama. You also get a 70+ page elopement planning guide to help you brainstorm and get excited!
Your day is going to fly by. No seriously, when it's all over, your elopement is going to feel like a dream. You get to be intentional and focus on your honey while I get to document your day as it unfolds. Your gallery will be full of beautiful, epic photos of you, the love of your life, and the mountains that we love.
TELL ME ABOUT YOUR DAY
I'm not here to give you unsolicited advice on how you *should* get married. I'm here to support your vision, help take some of the stress away, and give you kick-ass photos to remember forever.
When my couples see their ceremony location for the first time and tears well in their eyes because photos just didn't do it justice. Or when they thank me for helping them have an elopement in Colorado that truly reflects them...
In those moments, I feel so grateful that I'm an elopement photographer in Colorado and that I get to help couples have the wedding day they've always dreamed of.
Mountains are powerful and they're a beautiful place to commit yourself to your favorite person ever.
I’m originally from Wisconsin and instantly fell in love with the diverse landscape of Colorado and the peace that it brings. I've been photographing elopements in Colorado for going on 4 years!
I got a "nice camera" to take pictures of my dogs in pretty places but then my best friend asked me to take her engagement photos. The rest is history!
I fell in love with documenting two people in love surrounded by amazing views. As someone who escapes to the mountains whenever I possibly can, it only made sense that I work with couples that value the outdoors too!
Now I take beautiful elopement photos of couples who are drawn to the mountains and want a Colorado adventure elopement to celebrate their wedding day!
To see if we're a good fit for each other, check out this experience page!
If planning your elopement has been slightly intimidating so far,
I completely understand. The possibilities are endless & the lists of to-dos, vendors to sift through, and dreams to chase are never-ending.
As a Colorado photographer, I help couples plan their wedding day all the time and it can still feel heavy.
Because this is a BIG DEAL!!! This is the start of the rest of your life we're talking about. You just want to do it justice. You want your day to be full of love and intention and an accurate reflection of you.
& I want that for you too.
WORK WITH ME
You've experienced enough life to know that it's fleeting. The seasons pass and you understand that photos are invaluable, they are your legacy.
You know that you want your elopement to be special and full of meaning. A day that includes only your favorite things, activities, and people.
I'm here to help you make that happen.

I'm here to help you find it.
Before you keep scrolling, I have a couple things I'd like to mention.
Theres no "right" way to do this.
You don't have to "bag peaks" every other weekend to get married in the mountains. If you've never hiked a day in your life but dream about saying vows surrounded by nature, you're in the right place. If you literally hate hiking but want the views, I can make that happen. If you want to epic views AND a rewarding trek to get there, I'm your gal.
The possibilities are endless, please don't limit yourselves or let anyone tell you what you can, cannot, or should do on your day! Browse some popular elopement locations in Colorado.
"We cannot say enough good things about Mikayla. She was such a positive force to work with - so responsive, professional, kind, and enthusiastic. She was able to capture our love so well and we will seriously cherish her beautiful photos forever. If you are thinking of booking her - DO IT."
- Maddie + Kyle, Breckenridge Elopement
I've Photographed over 160 couples since 2018. Here are some featured galleries!
I understand that being in front of a camera can be intimidating. With your elopement photography, I won't leave you to figure things out yourselves. I direct you in a way that leaves everything open to interpretation because, ultimately, when you look at your photos, you want to see YOU--how you look at each other, how you hold each other.

With all of the elopement photographers in Colorado that you've researched so far, I'm sure we're all starting to mesh together and you're left asking what makes me so special.
I care--really. It sounds so cheesy, but I do, like a lot. I'm emotionally invested in all of my couples. In your planning, in your day, in your photos. I'm just a normal person who knows how to take beautiful photos and tell a story. For me, this never gets old. Yes, you'll get an elopement photographer & a pretty resourceful lady (if I do say so myself), but you'll also get a friend.
