Elopements

Limited 2020 dates available. Now booking 2021.

You know the saying "big things come in small packages"? Well it's true! Elopements are becoming the next big thing in the world of weddings and I am here for it!

Eloping is bringing it back to what truly matters on your wedding day - the two of you! Choosing to elope means that you find value in experiences and want to experience something bigger than a traditional wedding day (not there is anything wrong with traditions!) It's a day filled with intentionality and gives couples a raw, authentic wedding adventure. It's an adventure that only happens once in lifetime.

The Experience

Your Elopement Experience with me is like no-other. From the initial contact, I'm here to help you plan your adventure and the tedious details. When your adventure day comes, I'm there with you capturing it all. My photography style is very story-telling as opposed to posed. I want to capture the real moments, the small details, the dirt on your dress and the authentic smiles on your faces. I want you to look back and remember the day being all about you two and nothing or nobody else.

I specialize in not only photographing your elopement but also helping you plan all of the details of your day. Booking with me means you get a photographer as well as an event planner for the biggest adventure of your life! I will create a custom planning guide tailored to you and your fiancé's wants and needs to make sure your adventure is all about you two.

If the idea of a huge wedding doesn't appeal to you, but neither does the idea of not having your loved ones there, let's plan an intimate wedding! Intimate weddings are perfect for the couples that want the adventure of the elopement but still want to incorporate 25 of their closest family and friends. I'll help you pick out the best location to accommodate everyone and make sure that you get just as much adventure as a couple who chooses to elope with nobody there!

Once your day is complete, you'll have a Highlight Reel delivered straight to your email within 48 hours to be able to share your adventure with your friends and family! You'll have your full gallery within 8-10 weeks of your adventure!

Are you ready to take the next step and start planning your biggest adventure yet? From scouting out the perfect location to zipping you dress before your first look, I'm ready to adventure with you!

FAQ

If I want to elope, but I don't know where, will you help me?

OF FREAKING COURSE! Planning is my jam - no really, I'm that person that vacations with an itinerary! I have so many resources that I use when helping couples plan elopements - from virtual location scouting to finding a local florist so you can still have that perfect bouquet! You make all the final decisions, but I'll help you plan everything!

Can we pay for your travel outside of the package?

All of my travel fees are built into your package to ensure no extra fees arise during your elopement with me.

Will there be a second photographer at my elopement?

While I'm confident in my ability to shoot all of my elopements solo, having a second photographer can provide another perspective to your day and an alternate angle of every situation, or when couples are getting ready separately and the timeline doesn't allow me to be with them both. We can chat more about this option on a quick consultation call.

Can I extend the hours on the day of?

Due to the nature of elopements and the extensive planning that goes in to your elopement, it's not recommended that you extend your time the day of your elopement. With that said, things happen and this will be assessed case by case.

What kind of gear do you use?

Great question! I have a TON of gear, but my go-to equipment is my Canon EOS R with my Tamron 24-70mm lens alongside my Canon 6D with my Sigma Art 35mm. I have plenty of flash and light equipment as well that I will have on me throughout your wedding day. Rain or shine, sunshine or moonlight, I'll be able to capture your day exactly as it is! For adventure elopements, I also have a day pack with all of the necessities for your adventure. You'll also receive a suggested packing list for your day.

Do I have to order prints through you?

You aren't required to order directly through me, however to help make your life easier and to guarantee that your photos retain the professional quality you've paid for, your online gallery will have a link to shop directly through your gallery saving you time and money!
