Sweet and Intimate Elopement | Colorado Family & Wedding Photographer

With the current state of the world, we are expecting to see a big uptick in couples turning to an elopement. Of course versus a larger wedding, in the coming months and year. While our hearts are breaking for all of those impacted by this pandemic we are choosing to find a silver lining. We absolutely love small, intimate weddings and are looking forward to being a part of more.

This Washington DC elopement from last summer feels so timely. Especially as couples are changing their plans. And looking for inspiration for sweet small celebrations.

We met Anne and Mark early on a beautiful Saturday morning. We started at their home getting a few photos with their dogs. Then, we walked around DC to a few spots that were special to their relationship. Like the Capitol Building, La Colombe and Cafe St. Ex. Cafe St. Ex turned out to be closed but we still got a few shots on the front stoop and they are some of my favorite from the day.

Of course one of the true benefits of an elopement is the flexibility of time. Especially when taking photos. You are not on the clock to rush back to a reception or make it to the church on time. Ultimately you can really savor the time together and capture important spots for you and your relationship.

A Backyard celebration after the Elopement

After the morning photos, the couple met two friends in Meridian Hill Park where their close friend (who introduced them) performed the official marriage ceremony. The whole day was a sweet, personal and emotional elopement just for Anne and Mark. The two did celebrate with a party a few weeks later getting the best of both worlds. The party was in their backyard of their new house. The sweetest at-home celebration and elopement they could imagine.
