YOU DESERVE A wedding day that's
as awesome as you.
The term "elopement" might conjure up an image of a wedding that's rushed, ill-planned, shameful, or secretive. But that's not what it means to elope anymore - rather, it's evolving into something else entirely, and we couldn't be more excited about it.

To elope is to create a wedding experience that is intentional, meaningful, and unique to you. It's about saying NO to the expectations and obligations of traditional weddings, and YES to what you care about most.

You deserve a wedding experience that you can truly enjoy - not one that feels like a production or a performance, full of traditions and obligations that hold you to expectations that just aren't you.

One that's focused on what matters most - you two committing your lives to one another in a way that's meaningful, intimate, and unique.
WHAT IS AN ELOPEMENT?
Enjoying every moment of your adventurous wedding day, and creating an experience that you can truly call your own.
and you're pretty awesome.
let's talk about your dream elopement

If you had one day to live out your wildest dreams and adventures, what would that day look like? Where would you go, and what would you do? This is where the adventure elopement comes in - it's your chance to create a wedding experience that's entirely your own and as adventurous and crazy as you want it to be. Want to hike 10 miles to a gorgeous mountain summit, or maybe just park at an overlook with comparable views? Want to skip the fancy dinner and instead go for burritos? This is YOUR time.

I believe every couple deserves to have the story of their wedding day told in a way that honors their love and commitment, and allows for an experience that's relaxed, fun, and stress-free. These photos will be what you use to announce to the world that you've made the bold decision to elope - and aside from your marriage itself, they're one of the only physical remnants of your wedding day.

Whatever your timeline, I suggest getting enough coverage to capture some of getting ready through all the great adventure and festivities. Here are a few sample timeline to give you an idea of what an adventurous elopement day can look like!

When you're blazing your own path and breaking traditions, it can be daunting to do it alone. Not sure how to get married in a national park, or how to pack for a hiking elopement? When and where to hold a ceremony for the best light? I'm your girl.

Whether you're having a short and sweet ceremony at an overlook with your closest loved ones, or backpacking 10+ miles overnight to a summit for a sunrise elopement, the great outdoors can be unpredictable and wild. We as people on this earth also have a duty to respect our environment and leave no trace. Being prepared and planning ahead is the best way to ensure that you and your loved ones have a great time, and that our planet is taken care of - and I'll be there to help you do so.

I want to help you craft your dream adventure elopement, help you choose the perfect location for your vows, give you resources, help with logistics, scouting, timelines, packing lists, safety precautions, marriage law, permits, and anything else you need to ensure your elopement day is stress-free, fun, safe, and uniquely your own.

Let's be real - what's the point of spending thousands on your photos if they spend their life existing as mere pixels, or sitting on an old hard drive? Give your wedding photos a home more meaningful and significant than alongside your iPhone photos of Starbucks mugs and blurry party selfies - by printing them.

They'll take on a life of their own. They'll become a tangible thing you can share with your loved ones, and revisit for decades. You run your fingers along the spine and the gorgeous matte paper inside, and take in that lovely book smell - it becomes an entire experience, and you'll never feel that same level of connection to a digital file. I want you to have that experience.
GIVE YOUR PHOTOS LIFE
preserve your memories with an heirloom album
We're proud to offer a variety of beautiful fine art products printed on the highest quality papers - heirloom leather journals, hand-torn prints, canvases to hang, stationary for your save the dates and invitations - and more.
Our wedding album is unlike anything else. A soft, leather-wrap cover envelops pages of beautifully hand-torn, cotton rag museum-grade fine art prints. A rustic leather strap closure winds around to finish the look.

We'll start by getting to know each other - over video chat, or better yet, face to face over a warm caffeinated beverage! It's so important to me that I'm more than just a stranger with a camera at your wedding, and the relationship we form is one of the key elements in how I create photographs that are emotional, intimate, and authentic. We'll chat, you can ask me questions, and we'll figure out how I can best serve you on your wedding day - so you can feel confident in your decision when you hire me.

next steps
We'll make it official, with a contract and a 50% retainer. After that, it's planning time - you'll get a questionnaire, and unlimited planning meetings with me up until the big day.

I'll be by your side throughout this whole process, helping you plan your dream elopement - the perfect location, timeline, logistics, permits, packing lists, preparations, and anything else you need to make sure your elopement day is stress-free, fun, safe, and uniquely your own.
By the time the big day rolls around, my wish is for us to feel like old friends. I want you to feel like you can ask me anything, and feel totally relaxed around me.

We'll be spending a lot of time together, though it definitely won't be an all-day photoshoot. The magic happens in the moments you forget I'm there.

GET IN TOUCH
I won't be the photographer for everyone - and that's okay. I love getting to create with a small handful of amazing, adventurous couples and really connect with you, especially when it comes to something as intimate and personal as your wedding day. We laugh, cry, gush, and adventure together, and I want to be able to capture all of it in a way that means a damn to you.

I'm the photographer for adventurous, wild couples who are drawn to evocative, darker, moodier images of unscripted, joy-filled moments. For those who don't mind getting a little muddy or straying from the beaten path. So if my work speaks to you, and you're feeling all the feels right about now, if you think we might be a good fit for each other - then I think we should talk.
