Last weekend I had an absolute blast working with Summer and Matt up in Nederland. I had no idea these two cool, funky locations even existed in the Colorado mountains. We started this unique Colorado elopement photography session at the Carousel of Happiness. It was a bit of a challenge photographing sharp images at the same time that the carousel was moving me around, and moving Summer and Matt up and down in opposition. That thing really gets moving pretty fast. We definitely had some fun together! And as you will clearly see in the images, these two are gorgeous, and complete naturals in front of the camera. They rode around numerous times, on various animals, giving us some great variety. I especially love the swan bench seat. They could get nice and cuddly there for some romantic portraits.
We spent a bunch of time at the carousel, and then caught our balance and headed next door to The Train Cars Coffee shop. What an equally unique and awesome place! I hadn’t realized how quirky and cool Nederland is. In the train car Summer and Matt shared some freshly made donuts, toasted with bottled cokes, cuddled on the couch, and Matt even played some piano. These two could not take a bad picture. Their gorgeous elopement attire only helped make the imagery that much more stunning. Matt wore modern, blue-gray suit, and he has some really great hair! Summer had a show-stopping, sparkly bridal jumpsuit. Finished with scrappy gold heels, and a colorful, spring bridal bouquet. This shoot was like nothing I have photographed before. I won’t soon forget it 🙂
This is definitely one of my favorites from this unique Colorado elopement inspiration session. Summer looks like she is having the time of her life!
