We are Joe and Kari

Together we are the Colorado elopement photographer team here at Pyle Photography. We have captured hundreds of elopements and weddings for fantastic couples, each with a grand story to tell just like yours!

Our desire to create beautiful images for couples has taken us to Iceland, Alaska, Cancun, and many of the United States. We live in Estes Park all year.

The images we make are for couples who love each other, this planet, social diversity, and a good laugh. We want all to feel welcome here. If you have found us, then thanks.

We hope you enjoy what you find here.

Why us as your Colorado Elopement Photographer?

Living in the mountains of northern Colorado, our style reflects the beauty and awe that so many couples desire in their images. Your day should be about you, the love you have for each other, and where you are in this amazing world. When you decide to work with a Colorado elopement photographer, it should be people who know how to create a gallery that mirrors these details.

The best part? It's a way for you to save a lot of money while still having a beautiful day. Total win-win.

A few questions to ask each other...

How much stress could you leave behind if it were just the you two?
How much could you save for a fantastic honeymoon?
Would you rather have an intimate, small ceremony?

Your wedding day is about the two of you, so why not make it about the two of you then?

Eloping in Colorado should be about you two, where you are, and what you love.

Your relationship is about the two of you, right? (RIGHT??) It’s about your love for each other, about strong commitments, the start of a journey, and letting yourselves be together. What better way to solidify your relationship than to elope in Colorado? We have been present (most of the time, the only ones present) at over two hundred small elopements and each couple has said the same thing: 

“This was the best decision we could’ve made”

According to The Knot, one of the most respected wedding industry leaders, $31,000 was the average cost of a wedding in Colorado in 2019, and it's only gone up.

That's also about $225 per person invited.

The alternative is one that many couples have chosen, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic that hit the world in the spring of 2020: Work with a Colorado elopement photographer team and spend a fraction of what a full wedding would cost. Then go back and party with your friends and family. For them, that's usually the best part of a wedding!

We're a team!

As a husband and wife team, we are both lead photographers who know how to design a beautiful elopement that is tailored exactly for you two.

We have been present with hundreds of couples on their day and we'd be delighted to help you with yours.

How are we different? Well, that's up to you to decide, however we live ten minutes from RMNP and we're there a lot. We know our backyard very well and explore there on a regular basis. If you'd like to visit with locals who know, get in touch.

• Our style...

A long time ago we chose to start creating images here in Colorado that reflect the amazing landscape in every direction. Whether it's a massive overlook with a thousand foot drop behind you, a deep forest, or an alpine lake with elk in the background, we love it. Our work is very real, vibrant, and full of beauty. It's what we set out to do from the beginning and while our images will continue to evolve, our main focus will always be capturing the two of you in the beauty of our amazing state.

It's really simple...

Aside from being elopement photographers in Colorado, we also are adventurers here. We take a lot of pride in knowing RMNP and this area very well.

For the most part, when we are working here in the Estes Park/RMNP area, we meet at one of the entrances, jump in our adventure van, and drive to a fantastic location to say your vows. From there we will go to a few different spots for more pictures, grab some champagne, wine, whisky, or beer, and toast the two of you.
