nicki + mat // rocky mountain summer elopement


Levi Tijerina has been someone I’ve looked to as a mentor and all around good human so I jumped at the chance to second shoot for him at Nicki + Mat’s elopement in RMNP.

We hiked up the mountain where Nicki + Mat wanted to have their first look and exchange rings. Once we made it to the top, I got to hang with Nicki to help her get ready. It was epically windy at the top in all the right ways. Nicki and Mat were seriously the best duo. I admired how they loved + respected each other and also had a mutual understanding that “marriage” is more than anything, a partnership of two beautiful individuals expanding themselves and one another.

Here’s just a snippet of the afternoon, enjoy my friends!
