Rocky Mountain National Park Elopement – Hey Rushes!

Rocky Mountain National Park was way more beautiful than I could imagine.

When Maggie reached out and asked me to show her some landscapes I froze. I live in Kansas, all I’ve got are rolling hills occasionally! However, i’d photographed her sister’s wedding a couple years back so she decided she liked my style enough to bring me out to Colorado with her and her amazing family.

Maggie and Lance didn’t want to get married in front of a bunch of people. They are adventurous spirits who are wonderfully in love and are tons of fun and when they got married they only wanted their nearest and dearest there with them.

When I asked Maggie & Lance about their proposal, what stuck out to me most was “rain follows us”. We spent the whole day trying to plan around Estes Park rain, which was absolutely bananas.

RAIN IN ESTES PARK IS UNPREDICTABLE.

For a girl that’s never seen mountains before? It was crazy. The Ryan family is very familiar with Colorado, so they led me through how it’s best to just take it minute by minute and everyone has their own umbrellas just in case. Turns out we dodged the most of it even getting a beautiful rainbow.

Their wedding made me want to elope in the mountains as well, and I’m sure after these photos you’ll feel the same.

Choosing Tay to photograph our wedding was one of the easiest and best decisions we made. Both my husband and I are awkward and uncomfortable with being the center of attention and photographed, obviously a bad position to be in on your wedding day. However, Tay made something typically uncomfortable for us into something fun and easy! The photographs are beautiful and captured a lot of special moments as well as the energy of our dance floor at our reception!!

Tay is simply the best! Her work is STUNNING, and we're so lucky to have found her. We had a blast during our engagement shoot -- Tay instantly makes you feel so comfortable, as if you've known her for years. Our family and friends loved the photos as much as we did. It was important to us that we find an experienced photographer who knows how to photograph people of color and is LGBTQ-friendly. Tay absolutely fits the bill. We're so excited to work with her again at our wedding in April. Also, brides-and-grooms-to-be: Check out her blog for some amazing tips! It has become a touchstone guiding us through this crazy process.

I’m so glad I trusted Tayanna with my wedding day! She not only exceeded my expectations for what I thought our wedding photos could look like, but she had a beautiful sneak peek for me that night! The sneak peek was enough to make me sob. Then the rest of the photos came only 9 days later! I could go on forever. If you need a photographer that’s fun, energetic and on her game sooooo hard, you need Tayanna Harris. She’s killer!!!
