Mary + Nick’s Indian Peaks Wilderness Elopement
Mary left me the sweetest review after their elopement!
I first met Nina on the winter trifecta hike with the boulder hiker chicks. She took a picture of every single girl on that hike (around 70 women) even though we all started at different times, and I knew she had to be a badass. When my now husband proposed, and we decided to elope I already knew that Nina had to be our photographer. I didn’t want to spend my elopement day with someone we wouldn’t have a blast with and I was obsessed with all her work so I knew she was the one.
Nina took our engagement pictures (yes you can take engagement pictures even if you are eloping) before doing our elopement and we were so happy with how they turned out. She got us in our true element and got so many fun shots of us that didn’t feel forced.
We weren’t really aware of how an elopement worked and Nina made the process so easy! She was there every step of the way and gave us thoughtful detailed guides on planning, where to elope, vendors, etc. She helped us set a timeline and even managed to find room for our parents to meet us for pictures afterwards. The spot that Nina suggested we elope was so perfect for us and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to exchange our vows.
The snowpack this year was insane and what we thought was going to be a relatively easy hike, turned into a longer snowy, sloppy hike. When she asked if we’d rather take pictures at the lower lake and we told her we’d love to make the trek if she was willing, she immediately jumped in and said she was in. We had some crazy weather on our elopement day even though the forecast was 70 and sunny, but Nina handled everything like a pro. We were a little worried that our photos wouldn’t be great because of all the hail and rain but we were pleasantly surprised. They are amazing and we are so thankful we chose Nina to be our photographer.
