November / December

These are some of our busiest winter months. Because of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and winter break, the mountain resorts and towns can be packed with visitors. If you want to elope during these months but still want privacy, I would encourage you to look into a weekday and sunrise elopement. The landscape during these months can also be a bit bleak. The snow is just starting to fall, and it doesn’t stick in lower elevated areas. This makes some of the landscape brown and a bit dull. But because the snow isn’t too high, it’s great for snowshoeing!

 

January / February

These are our traditional winter months in the mountains. However, the weather in the metro area is much more erratic. You could be walking around in shorts or bracing for a blizzard. January and February are our least busy winter months. So, if you’re wanting more privacy these months might be a better option for your winter elopement.

 

March / April

Think snow, snow, some more snow, and then a little more snow, and then a lot more snow. We get most of our snow during March and April. This is great if you really want a winter wonderland elopement but keep in mind, we also have a lot of avalanches during these months as well. These avalanches can close locations and road access.

May

There is still lots of snow in the mountains in May. In lower elevation, we’ll start to get some greenery from the snowmelt. Most of the high alpine roads are still closed during this time. Many open after Memorial Day, weather permitting.

 

June

There is still snow in the higher altitudes even in June. However, during the day, it begins to warm up but not so much that it’s uncomfortable. This warmth brings more snowmelt. Because of this, the rivers and lakes start to fill up more.

July / August

The end of July and early August is typically when we have most of our wildflowers. So, if you imagine eloping in a meadow full of flowers, July is your month. While it might be warm in lower elevations, you can escape the heat by eloping in the high country.

September

September is our busier fall month. That’s because the mountain roads are still open and it’s also when the colors began to change. The leaves begin to change color in higher elevation in late September. We even have an unofficial holiday called “Color Sunday” in honor of this change. It happens on the last Sunday in September.

 

October

October isn’t quite as busy as September but that’s also because our roads start shutting down. It’s possible to get snow during October but it usually never sticks. The leaves begin to change color in lower elevation in early-mid October. So, if you missed seeing them in September you still have time.

Amy, Forest Elopement

"Instead of telling us how to pose or interact with each other, Marcela gave us prompts that seemed simple but made a huge difference.

She asked us to talk about our first date. We discussed the weirdest things we loved about each other (which made us laugh) and how we could fulfill each other’s love languages. Amy and I played games with each other and Marcela captured the energy that happened naturally between us.

I love this shoot because it perfectly captures the love we share. It’s incredible to see that love and admiration encapsulated in a photo! Thank you for this!"

Chris, Anniversary Session

"The photos we just got back from Marcela are giving me CHILLS!! They are absolutely stunning!!!

She did SO MUCH more than just photograph us — she created special moments that I’ll cherish forever. She encouraged Con & I to genuinely interact & share intimate moments together. She prompted us to tell each other things that we love about one other, ways that the other person inspires us, & how being together has positively changed us.

It was more than just a beach shoot. We ended up giving each other precious, heart melting encouragement & that makes these photos all the more treasured to me."

Andrea, Red Rocks Elopement

"We had a pre-meet with her before the big day which definitely helped me feel more relaxed going into the wedding day. She gave us great suggestions and things to think about to be ready with on the wedding. On the day of she showed up early to help scope out the venue. She was creative to try and pull extra joy into our photographs.

When I look at these photos I see more than just beautiful images. I feel the moments that Marcela helped us experience and the connection we had.

I can't thank Marcela enough! We will treasure these moments forever!"

Lauren, Sand Dunes Elopement

"We loved every moment of the day she helped create. Marcela was the perfect photographer for our adventure elopement! She worked tirelessly to make our adventure into marriage happen after our first options were snowed in! Great Sand Dunes felt like the perfect unique place for two Floridians who met in the mountains.

She made us comfortable to be ourselves throughout the whole day while making her job look effortless and fun. Our cheeks hurt from smiling, laughing and a few tears.

Marcela captured every precious moment! Her photography is absolutely stunning every way! I highly recommend Marcela for your elopement or wedding!"
