What happens when you let your imagination run wild
So, what now? You may have always known a big, traditional wedding isn’t your cup of tea. Or perhaps the whirlwind of planning questions and expectations is getting you down, and you’re not sure if that old school celebration is resonating with you as much as you thought it would. What’s the alternative, then?
We wholeheartedly believe an adventurous all day elopement is the most beautiful and personal way to say “I do”, and a decision that comes with perks a regular wedding may not provide.
This is your chance to plan something that checks all of those boxes, and breaks the mold of what a wedding should look like.
Intimate moments over formal affairs.
Big views over ballrooms.
New experiences over old traditions.
If you value...
Let's build an experience beyond your wildest expectations.
I encourage you to sit down with your partner and envision the most beautiful day you can think of. A day that includes your favorite activities, the most stunning setting you can imagine, and an experience that aligns with what you value most.
Once you've identified the perfect where and when, we get to work helping you fill in the rest. Your elopement is the day you will think about every anniversary together. What kind of adventure will you be looking back on?
For some, this could be a challenging day hike and for others, a leisurely sightseeing tour. Travel far, or stay close to home. Enjoy complete solitude, or plan a celebration with family and friends in tow. Say your vows as the alpenglow begins to light up the mountains, or stay up late and watch the stars. This isn’t just about the epic portraits (although we’ll for sure be capturing those too). Focus on how you want your elopement day to feel.
We'll be with you every step on the way, and when all is said and done, you'll head home with beautiful memories and a gallery of images that will help you relive your day forever.

You don't need an excuse to take stunning photos with your boo! We'll spend one to three hours together exploring our favorite wild places and creating images that feel the most like you. We provide adventure sessions in all locations along our travel schedule so be sure to check that out to find out when we'll be nearby.
We believe the outdoors should be accessible to everybody.
Your elopement itinerary is specifically crafted to fit your comfort and ability level - we’ll send you loads of options we think would fit based on our expertise of the area and let you decide which trail or location speaks to you most.
If you’re looking for a hiking elopement with an epic view point, couples can expect an average of 2+ miles with varying degrees of difficulty for an all day elopement.
"Adventure" can mean many things. We don’t even have to hike at all! Many couples only plan small, leisurely adventures into their day as just one activity of many. There are gorgeous locations that are easily accessible, which makes them perfect to bring loved ones along as well.
There will always be two of us to act as your witnesses, but many states do require an officiant. We will be sure to include all elopement requirements for your chosen location in the custom guide, along with anything else you may need to know ahead of time. We can direct you to any other vendors you would like to incorporate into your day.
It’s important to note that epic photos and a beautiful experience aren’t limited to sunny days. We will always come prepared with backup plans in case we need to pivot to a secondary location, but we love to roll with the punches and embrace the fog, rain, clouds, and wind that come with an outdoor adventure. Plus, we both believe these can make for some totally dramatic images.
Some parks have permit guidelines for ceremonies that cap the number of people in attendance, so it’s best to plan for no more than 15-20 guests for elopements on public lands. This is of course a general guideline, and we will be sure to let you know if your chosen location can accommodate your desired guest count. We happily shoot intimate weddings with larger guest counts at private venues in these same beautiful areas. Here are some more details on our wedding packages.
We love sharing beautiful places with our couples, but this comes with a responsibility to protect the land and leave it as we found it. That way it will be available for future eloping couples and open for you to revisit on your anniversary not just in a year but for decades to follow!
Leave No Trace guidelines offer the best practices to care for and preserve the space we occupy while out on the trails, and are typically common sense and easy to follow! We're both firm believers in the ethical stewardship of our public lands and for that reason we're both Leave No Trace certified photographers.

All that is required to book is a date, a general location, and a non-refundable retainer of $1000. This secures your date as we get started putting together your perfect elopement location guide.
