“There is no way that our day would have turned out as perfect as it did, without her.”

Get to know your Destination elopement photographer

You deserve to have the most amazing destination elopement, and I want to help make that happen! For years, I’ve been happily planning my own outdoor-centered trips worldwide, which has helped me hone my skills at designing incredible elopement adventures.

I even planned my own destination vow renewal in Iceland! It was truly an unforgettable trip and one of the best days of our lives. 

Hey, I'm Julie, your travel-obsessed photographer + planner.

After a lifetime outdoors (I took my first camping trip at just a year old!), I have the knowledge to approach your destination elopement experience keeping both beautiful scenery and safety in mind.

What I’ve gathered from all my time off the beaten path is to appreciate and seek out the peaceful moments and unique experiences that nature has to offer, which is how I like to approach elopement planning as well.
