Breckenridge Elopement Locations
Breckenridge Elopement Locations | Colorado adventure wedding photographer
The last time I spent the night in the mountains after a wedding, I decided to explore some Breckenridge elopement locations the next day. I’ve been shooting in Breckenridge a lot this summer, and it’s one of my very favorite mountain towns. For more Breckenridge wedding photography inspiration, check out these posts: Main Street Station wedding and Breckenridge Nordic Center wedding.
I love finding new and unique places for my couples, and I can’t wait to use one of these Breckenridge elopement locations soon. Location scouting is really just a great excuse to go hiking on the clock 😉 These particular locations are on the outskirts of town, and accessible via a somewhat crappy dirt road. From the road, you can hike off in pretty much any direction to find pretty spots. My favorite was the ten minute hike leading to a beautiful waterfall!
While it’s really easy to find gorgeous places for Colorado hiking elopements, it’s harder to find similar views that are more easily accessible. Many of my couples want their parents or other friends and family to be a part of their adventure wedding. And I think it’s important to remember that couples who may not be able to hike a mountain still deserve epic views for their elopement photos! That’s where these Breckenridge elopement locations are so perfect – most of them require little to no hiking.
The only downside with easily accessible locations is the crowds. I visited these spots around noon on a Sunday, and the two parking lots were packed. If I was using any of these Breckenridge elopement locations for photos, I would highly recommend going at sunrise or sunset to avoid the casual hiker family crowds. Sunrise would be extra gorgeous up here, with the way the sun would hit the mountains in the basin.
