CRYSTAL & JAKE
YANKEE BOY BASIN | OURAY, COLORADO | AUGUST 13, 2018
You can imagine my surprise when I found out I was going to be on vacation in Telluride, Colorado at the same time one of my friends from town would be having their wedding near Ouray, Colorado - they are but an hour drive from one another! Crystal and I were so excited to find out I'd be able to, with no doubt, capture her and Jake's wedding ceremony in the mountains. The day was absolutely perfect - the weather wasn't too warm, there wasn't a rain drop in the sky and the mountains were as picturesque as always.
The Climb to Yankee Boy Basin
After getting ready in a beautiful AirBnB in downtown Ridgway, we made our way to Ouray where we would park at the bottom of the mountain road and make our ascent on an ATV. To bring you in on our experience, I've included a short video of the beginning of the ride up the mountain where it overlooks the city of Ouray below.
