They say it’s a small world. Rebecca and Jordan’s Sprague Lake elopement shows just how small it can really feel. Having never met, they moved to Denver from two different cities within weeks of one another. What’s more, they literally moved just a few short blocks from each other. From hundreds of miles of separation to hundreds of steps apart, love was just around the corner. Now, how serendipitous is that? They didn’t meet right away, but when they did, the bond was some kind of special.
Naturally, the sunrise ceremony was full of golden light and morning alpenglow hues of red and orange. After saying their vows at Sprague Lake, they walked the first footsteps of their marriage. Those steps climbed to Dream Lake for newlywed portraits and back down to a sweet grove of Aspen trees and the perfect shade of green. It was the sweetest Rocky Mountain morning with sunbursts at every turn!
Sometimes, it feels impossible to meet someone with whom you can spend a lifetime. In fact, single adults can go through extreme measures to do so. People search high and low, near and far. As it can turn out, your sweetheart might be a lot closer than you think. When two lovers finally find each other, their perspective and mindset instinctively change. From willing to search the world to find love to wanting to explore the world with your love, the shift is subtle, but oh so different. The world seems impossibly big, then really small, and somehow back to a giant labyrinth again.
The truth is, the world virtually never changes shape, but one’s perspective within it, does. Understanding this allows for better accuracy. Perspective is a powerful concept, which is one of the great things about photography – the perspective from where you tell a story matters. It’s a subjective accuracy, which is why it’s nice to have photographers who can identify and relate to a variety of personality types. Compositions come from connection.
Rebecca and Jordan, thank you for having us be a part of your incredible Sprague Lake elopement! We had such a good time under the sweet sunshine with you both!
