Andrew + Karla
Epic elopement in the Rockies.
Meet Andrew and Karla.
This destination wedding holds a very special place in my heart. I have known Andrew and Karla for a little over a year. Andrew is one of seven brothers! When I was first introduced to Andrew I could see immediately he was an outdoorsmen. After I met Karla and she made Andrew look like a beginner. Not only is camping her passion, she is a marathon runner and an exceptional athlete! To say the least they both are.
When they asked me to photograph their wedding I was overjoyed. When they told me it was in Aspen, Colorado in front of the Maroon Bells I was SOLD. What better way to capture a wedding than a place that sums up a couple perfectly.
Surrounded by loved ones Andrew and Karla vowed to never give up when things get hard and to give unconditional love forever. It was obvious that their love for each other was this grounded, natural, never going away kinda love.
Andrew and Karla left me with tears, laughs, and adventure. After the Ceremony we hiked up a mountain and embraced everything this beautiful landscape had to offer. The excitement of these two was beaming off them. There was no poses, “specific looks” or “ideas”. The world had stopped for Mr. and Mrs. Gray and I was paused right there with them capturing their truest form.
