Amber & Greg | Elopement Session | Denver Colorado | 2017

     I first met Amber and Greg in 2016 for some wintery, engagement pictures. It had just snowed and we went to a place in the foothills and the snow was about 2 feet high. Amber and Greg had their winter coats on, gloves and hats and it was freezing! A little over a year later Amber and Greg are officially married and did it in the best possible way. They did a court house wedding and decided to do some fun pictures with me to commemorate the occasion! 
     I am a HUGE fan of elopements for a couple of reasons 1) Weddings these days can get OUT OF CONTROL EXPENSIVE! Our society has made couples feel they have to spend thousands upon thousands of dollars to have a "decent" wedding. So not true! 2) Elopements get the job done. You walk into the court house, sign some papers and boom you are married. Is it fancy? not really...but it fulfills the act of legally binding you and your loved one together. And in the end isn't that all we really want? Is for the world to know we want to be with that certain someone forever? For our taxes to be prepared together not separate anymore? For us to have joint bank accounts and buy houses, cars, other expensive junk  and grow old together?! Ok I got off track there but my point do NOT have to spend your fathers retirement fund, your downpayment on a house or any other astronomical amount of money on a wedding. You blow all this cash on one day and what are you left with? The awesome pictures your awesome photographer took but you have no walls to hang them on because you are stuck living with your mom and dad. 
     People...your worth is not equal to how much money your wedding cost's. The act of sharing your life with that special person is all that matters. Waking up next to the love of your life, sharing pets, laughing, crying and just being with your best friend. Thats what marriage is. A $1000 cake doesn't prove anything to anyone. Making your marriage last does. 
    Amber and Greg are a couple that will make it. They love each other with their heart and souls. When we did these pictures I could just feel their love through my lens. I can't describe it... it was just this spark or radiation feeling I got that they were going to grow old together. That made me so happy. Greg and Amber have the best sense of humor and just get each other and it was amazing to be around them! I cannot wait to capture their lives and all the many stages they go through together.
