feel alive

Imagine what your day could be like. The possibilities are endless with adventure elopements.  There is nothing holding you back when it comes down to it.  Take the leap- you've got everything to gain.

Hey, that's me!

Having someone directly available to navigate the travel, itinerary, permits, and gear will feel like a god-send.  

Imagine having to scour the internet to look for destinations, figuring out what park ranger to speak with for a permit, and not being sure on lighting, weather conditions or altitude. Kinda dizzying right?

Planning elopements around the world is my expertise

I'm here for you.

Call me the expert at arranging plans.  I have travelled to over half of the National Parks in the US, documenting amazing full day elopements. 

I have gained the trust of dozens of couples throughout the years to design amazing elopement experiences and curate their daring love stories.  All of my couples have given me the honor to witness such intimacy, in order to preserve the most momentous day of their life. 

"We love our photos so much- I don't even have words. Receiving our gallery made our whole fairytale feel real all over again!!! We truly appreciated her and her talent more than words can say! We loved getting to know her and can't thank her enough for all she has done for us! I cannot wait to surprise some family members with these photos"

How It Works

step one

step three

Everything that you have imagined is now here!! It's time to celebrate your love and the life you've begun!

let's elope!

step four

If you are considering to get married in a national park or public lands, we will need to purchase a special use permit for your ceremony! Some also require a photography permit on top of that.  If you book me, I take care of filing the permits and it is included in your package price!

Do I need to get a permit for my wedding?

There are so many options to include your family on your wedding day!! An example could include having them write letters to you both, for you to open on your day. They could even make a video that wishes you well, and you could watch that on the top of a mountain! Livestreaming is also a great option where there is data available!

How can I include my family on my day, even if it's just the two of us?

Because I help with planning your wedding- we can find locations that are wheelchair accessible! These locations can still have epic views too! If you are planning a micro-wedding, there are plenty of venues with amazing landscapes as well.  Whatever accessibility looks like for you or your loved ones, we will find a perfect location to fit your needs.

How can I make an adventurous wedding more accessible?

We typically deliver 100 photos per every hour we shoot.  So if you are booked for 4 hours, you can expect a minimum of 400 hand-edited images, vs. 8 hours you would expect a minimum of 800 hand-edited images. All images are delivered through a private online gallery within 10 weeks of your wedding day.

How many photos do I get?

What the FAQ?

Absolutely! I require a 50% non-refundable retainer once the contract is signed, and then the remaining balance is due two weeks prior to your wedding date.  We can work out a payment plan in between to fit your needs!

Do I offer payment plans?

My editing style can best be described as bold and moody, while my posing style encapsulates the real-time moments you feel throughout your relationship.  I value the candid feelings and expressions you show off with your love!

What is my photography style?

If you book with me, you will receive an entire elopement guide that is jam packed with ideas and advice on how to prepare for your elopement and all the possibilities you could do for your day!! What's most important is that the day reflects the two of you!

How do we fill up an entire day of activities?

If you are planning a micro-wedding that involves a venue, I suggest you start planning at least a year in advance with the current Wedding Boom happening post-COVID.  If you are planning an elopement with just a few close loved ones, those can be planned out as early as 3 months before your wedding date! Just remember, the more elaborate the day, the more planning involved!

How far in advance should I plan my wedding?
