Elopements and intimate weddings are super awesome and totally deserve just as much excitement and celebration as traditional weddings! You may not need morning to evening photography coverage of all the typical wedding festivities, but that doesn’t mean you should only get a quick shoot. What’s your dream day with your fiance? Let’s create an itinerary of whatever experiences you want to have, sights you want to see, and moments you want to enjoy on this incredibly special day. And I’ll be right there with you to document your amazing day of love and adventure.

What are adventure weddings + elopements?

Gone are the days when eloping meant you had to get married quickly or secretly. Today, elopements can be planned whenever, and are more about having just a few guests to witness your marriage (or none at all!). The focus is on the couple, their love, and making the day exactly what they want it to be. And for those who love adventure, that often means spending the day outside enjoying nature. Sounds pretty great, right?

What does an elopement photographer do?

You might think I’m just here to take photos of your wedding day, but let me tell you that there’s so much more to it! From the very beginning, I’m here to help - and that means giving you ideas and advice on creating a meaningful + fun day of adventures, helping you find the perfect spot for your ceremony, recommending an awesome florist to work with and where to find your dress + suit, building you a wedding day timeline so we can include everything you want, and SO much more. I’m basically a trail guide, best friend, wedding planner, and photographer all rolled into one! 

How much time do we need a photographer for?

You could just do a quick ceremony and then take some photos together for an hour or two. But wouldn’t your experience and your photos be so much more meaningful if you spent the day together doing your favorite things, feeling relaxed and not rushed, and enjoying every little moment of this incredible day? Let’s plan your elopement to be an epic day filled with activities that speak to who you are as a couple and the things you love. Let’s hike a mountain at sunrise. Let’s kayak to a secluded island for your ceremony. Let’s roast marshmallows over a fire as your stargaze. It's your day, so make it your own. And I'll be there to document your awesome adventures and sweet moments so you can remember forever how it felt to marry your best friend.
