Who are you?

Most likely, you are an adventurous, outdoorsy couple with your own unique style. Perhaps you value experiences over material things and have the desire to celebrate your special day in your own way or on your own terms.

One thing I know for certain is that you want photographs that capture feelings and not just images. You and your partner want to be yourselves on your big day and come away with stories to tell and memories to share for generations to come….and photographs that are a time capsule of your memories!

Frequently Asked Questions

An elopement is a unique day where you and your partner say your handwritten vows to each other in nature and in front of your very closest friends or just your photographer. It can include adventures and definitely includes your favorite activities to do together.

A small, intimate wedding can still be uniquely yours in nature, but includes up to 50 of your closest family and friends. It may also include some indoor activities.

That is the fun part of the elopement planning process. When we have our initial meeting, I will ask you questions that help you think through what you want to incorporate into your ceremony and then what other types of activities you want to have and the best locations for those activities. Once we have that figured out, I will lay out a detailed timeline and that will define how much time we will allocate for your elopement.

We can’t control Mother Nature, so we will make sure to have a primary plan for your elopement, as well as multiple backup options. I will also help you develop a packing list that includes such items as umbrellas, warm jackets, boots, snowshoes…whatever we may need to ensure you still have a fun and safe day. I always carry sunscreen, ibuprofen, and hand/feet warmers to help with changes in our day we didn’t expect.

If the weather is going to prevent a safe day, then we will work on another day that can work.

The best part about your elopement is that you can do whatever you want!

If hiking isn’t your thing, you can kayak in an alpine lake or ride your bicycles on an exhilarating mountain pass or ride in a helicopter over a glacier or take a private tour through your favorite museum or all of the above. You can also cook your favorite meals, drive to your favorite overlook and say your vows as the sun sets. The options are endless.

Just as you are able to write your own vows to each other, we are also able to craft the ceremony however you want it.

To make your marriage official, I only need to proclaim your marriage to each other at the end of your ceremony. I can do that from any location. I also sign the marriage license and we can do that back at the car or your lodging.

Each state has different rules, so I help you with that in advance. In the states where you can self solemnize, all I need to do is sign your license.

I love dogs! I have a big, fluffy labrador retriever myself. As much as possible, we will work to include your dog in your ceremony or any part of your elopement. Many National Parks don’t allow dogs on their main trails though. So if your dog can’t be incorporated into your adventuring or ceremony, we’ll incorporate them at some part of your day. They want to celebrate with you just as much as you want them there!

If we are walking at all, then I recommend that you wear a very comfortable pair of shoes or boots for walking long distances in (and that you’ve broken in before your wedding day).

If you want to have a special pair of shoes for your pictures, make sure they fit in your backpack.

And if we’re going to be on a beach, have a pair of flip flops that you can leave in the car. Just don’t wear socks with your Tevas.

Making Your Marriage Official

I would love to provide you with elopement officiating services to help you get married your way!

I will help you craft a personalized ceremony script around your written vows and ensure everything official is taken care of.
