The story of Keara and Aaron is one of true love. I met them on the same night they met each other. You could instantly tell they had a strong connection, it was no surprise how fast they fell for each other. Fast forward a few years, I was so happy to photograph their adventure elopement at Great Sand Dunes National Park.
I met Keara and Aaron at Great Sand Dunes National Park, protecting the tallest sand dunes in North America. The iconic Star Dune towers at 755 feet. It is such an incredible location to explore with breathtaking sights. You can explore any part of the 30-square-mile dune field. But the sand can get extremely hot in the summer, so wear proper footwear and pack lots of water! The park is also dog friendly, be sure to protect their feet when exploring the dunes.
They finished getting ready in their car, and we ventured into the park. Hiking up the sand dunes with bare feet. There are so many different areas and viewpoints, it’s fun to jump right in and see what you find. The sand also moves with the wind and can be as little as a few feet per year to tens of feet in one day. We found a private area off to the side where they exchanged their vows in a heartfelt ceremony. Afterward, we adventured through the dunes for incredible photographs until the sun went down. Their adventure elopement at Great Sand Dunes National Park is one I will never forget.
