Plan YOUR ADVENTUREInfo & Pricing
Mountains. Lakes. Desert Skies. Your Adventure, the way you want it.
In the simplest of terms and in the most obvious way, an elopement is about the two people that are making that life-long commitment to each other, and no one else. No unwanted debt, no unnecessary “stuff” that you don’t really care about. This day is only about what you want: love, adventure, and really amazing photos to remember it by. You get to decide when and where.
Have you dreamed of getting married surrounded by the ancient red rocks of southern Utah? Perhaps you both want to go full force into the wilds of Patagonia or Alaska knowing it’s just you and the wildlife. It’s completely up to you two and how far your imagination can take you! I’ll bring the charcuterie!
it's all in the details
Let’s get our chat on! We chat over FaceTime, Zoom, the phone or email and get to know each other. Your relationship, and what you would like to do. Have an adventure elopement or intimate wedding. Tell me your needs and dreams and I can help you craft it the way you want.
Pick your day! All I need to know is when you want to get hitched and and general idea of where. (Olympic National Park, Iceland, Banff, Arizona etc.). No worries if you don’t have an exact spot picked out. I can help with that.
It’s all in the details. Through ever step of the process. I can help you find what you need. Lists of epic locations and other preferred vendors (florist, makeup artist, etc.). You just need to pick your favorite spot, book your travel & vendors, and find some rockin’ clothes to wear.
Adventure time! Your wedding day is here! We adventure together and document the whole story of your incredible experience. From morning til night. With all the laughs, tears, and hugs in between!
Relive Your Love story forever. You can expect a teaser of 20-40 photos, all Instagram/Facebook ready, within 24-72 hours with the rest of your gallery ready within a one-two months! I make sure you get your photos back ASAP so you can start loving and sharing your photos sooner and remember your big day while it’s still vivid in your memory.
What the FAQ?
No. We believe in keepings things simple, easy, and as stress free as possible! Our passion is elopements and keeping the focus on the couple getting married and keeping the guest list to 25 or less.
Each on of my packages varies in how many images are delivered, but I promise I’ll always include plenty of images of everything I capture. I don’t like to give a cutoff number because I don’t believe in withholding any images from you for any reason. These are your memories. I promise to capture them fully and give you more than enough images to remember this Time in your lives.
Abso-freakin-lutely!..but to an extent. I can give you referrals for anything you need. Florists, hair and makeup are the most common. But if you need someone to help the day of the wedding (not an elopement), I recommend a wedding planner. For elopements it’s a little more extensive. But I have been known to help with getting your permits, officiating (yep, I am ordained!), making your timeline, and everything else in between to make sure your day goes as smoothly and is as stress FREE as possible!
Yes to both! No love story is too far for me to document it. Nothing makes me more happy than when either one of us travels for the session. Because I grew up and live in one of the most beautiful places on the western United States, I have had couples all over the country travel here for photos. I, in turn have traveled to over 40 locations, state side and international for my clients. I go where you want your love story to start!
The short answer is 20 years. But back then I was 14 and I would use those wind up cameras at summer camp. And I still have many of those photos! But taking wedding photos, that would be 14 years now. Wow, that’s crazy to think it’s been that long! I have shot over 300 couples in that time. And each year I learn something new and meet even more amazing couples!
Adventure sessions I have managed to get back between 2 weeks in the slow seasons, 4 in the busy. With elopements and intimate weddings back in 6 weeks. But all sessions get a teaser of 20-40 photos within 24-72 hours after! I want you to get your photos back as soon as possible so it’s still fresh in your mind. Not six months later.
I come from a family of hikers and boy scouts. I am always prepared for any session that requires hours of hiking or overnight sleeping in the middle of f—king no where if you wanted those epic views at sunrise or sunset that would require hours of hiking in/out. Take a look at my packages, with my all day package it can be broken up into two days!
I got a handy dandy Pinterest board made with lots of fabulous ideas! I got your back, just ask to see it!
No, as I believe that editing is half the magic that goes into images and without this huge step the images are only halfway done. I promise to never leave any photos out that you’ll want/need, and if you feel I missed delivering a photo, just ask! I’m more than happy to check back through my images and send it over to you (I make mistakes, no lie!). I won’t let you miss out on your memories!
I do a easy $1000 down to hold your spot with the remaining balance due a month before your sessions. If you need to do payment plans just ask. I make it easy for you. I know you got bills to pay just like I do. I also can do Venmo, Paypal, Debit and Credit. Just know that there is a 3% fee.
I once fell 3 hours before an elopement. Went to the ER, got 2 stitches, wrapped it and put on pain killers and still rocked the hell out of that elopement! So trust me when I say I would only miss your wedding if it were out of my control (act of god, illness, death, etc) but in this case I would do my best to help find a replacement photographer to take my place that I trust with a similar style, although I’m not legally held to do so. If I can’t make it to your wedding your money will be refunded except for the deposit.
I always like to encourage my clients to go for it. It typically leads to more dramatic photos. But if it’s going to be bad enough that we’ll all be very miserable, or my gear is at risk, we will reschedule.
