Intimate Destination & Adventure Elopements
Over 300 brides + grooms (oh yes, and mothers of the brides!) have trusted our services and knowledge for their wedding day. You can click here to see all the raving reviews!
This is for the wild at heart lovers who want to roam freely without a timeline or an agenda, to say their vows in the most breathtaking places with a handful of their favorite people. Where the only thing that matters is who you’re going to marry and how that’s literally all you want, so much so you can feel your heart exploding.
When you book us for your wedding day, you’re getting so much more than just stellar photos, you’re getting a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I believe that your experience should be full of fun, laughter, and genuine excitement, with intentional vows..
My shooting style is very free, full of emotion and adventurous. I won’t ever leave you feeling weird or not knowing what to do. As I will help direct you in certain areas as I do not do much-posed photographs; I like to keep it real and raw. I tend to stay towards the emotional aspect of things, so a lot of times you’ll be so focused on just getting to marry your forever date that you’ll even forget that I’m there while you’re just hanging out at the greatest location on Earth. That could look like a mountain elopement in Colorado, Jackson hole, Red River, Yosemite National Park, a helicopter elopement in Alaska, a Barbados elopement on a cliff as the sun rises over the ocean, a true texas elopement in Big Bend, or a desert elopement in Moab, Zion. Anywhere in the world where your heart desires.
WHAT EXACTLY IS AN ELOPEMENT?
It comes down to stripping your wedding from all the fluff and production performance that is set up for your guests and not who matters the most- you and your partner. An elopement is an intentional, meaningful and authentic way to get married.
I can look like the two of you getting up at 4 am with headgear on while hiking our way through the mountain to that one perfect location, a sunrise ceremony, or you two inviting your closest friends and family to witness the intimate ways to say your vows while the ocean crashes against the rocks below.
I will come alongside you to map out the dream wedding your heart desires. We will fill out a questionnaire that covers the super deep questions about who you are as a couple, what’s most important to you and what your vision is as a couple to join yourselves as one.
Listen, your elopement day isn’t just showing up for a quick ceremony and some fancy portraits. IT’S THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE.
It’s waking up to eat breakfast or having brunch with your favorite people, it’s filling up your camelback, it’s the butterflies you get when you’re at the hiking destination knowing you’re about to see and feel the most incredible moments you’ll ever experience, it’s putting the ring on your partners finger, it’s the deep and meaningful vows you commit to one another. It’s cuddling up with a fleece blanket right next to the fire talking about how you’re so happy you did it your way and not obligated to put on a huge production for other people, because right about now, a wedding planner would be whisking you two away for a garter toss that doesn’t have any meaning to you.
I help you bring every detail to life to make your day far more than you ever imagined. That’s how we are different. Because this day is all about YOU, and you deserve to experience it stress-free while I document the whole story.

Why you would want a full day coverage for your elopement...
If you have seen our work through the website, facebook or Instagram, you know that we shoot through the emotional, raw and real aspects of life. Do you think all these moments were forced posed? Nope. They weren’t. Think of me as your “ninja stalker” documentary photographer who is there to capture the true essence of YOU TWO throughout the whole day.
You deserve more than just someone who will say “okay, stand here with this pretty backdrop and say cheese”. You deserve to look back on your wedding day to be able to relive those little moments that reflect who you two are with a photographer whos has won awards doing just that- real, raw and emotional wedding photography.
We cover the start of getting ready, details of the dress, family heirlooms, special one on one moments between mom and dad and then move to either first looks or ceremony, and can end up with a bonfire dancing with photos under the stary sky. THE WHOLE STORY
