I'll Be Your Guide

When it comes to something as important as your elopement photos, I will guide you through everything. Just follow my lead and have fun along the way. It will be easy. Do not worry about looking stiff in photos or knowing what to do. I will be right there by your side, making jokes the entire time and capturing the perfect moments for you to look back on with joy for the rest of your life.

My Approach

It is more than simply curating, creating, and capturing your memories. It is about you enjoying those moments, and me blending in with your guests so those photographs are truly felt, not just seen. I promise you, they are anything but "stiff" or awkward. They are true to you, in the moment, and curated with intention.



The importance you place on your Elopement day is understandable. You want everything to be perfect. When you book me as your Elopement photographer, you can be assured that I will work diligently to make sure the photos are of the highest quality. But more than that, I want you and your spouse to enjoy the experience. I want you to be able to relax and laugh throughout the process. I want to be a friend you can rely on to help make your wedding day everything you've ever dreamed of.

As your Elopement photographer, it is my goal to provide you with results that tell your Elopement story. I want you to feel like you are experiencing your Elopement day all over again every time you look at your photographs. I want you to see all the beautiful details, the energy, and the joy from your Elopement day through my photographs. And because photographs are forever, every time you look at them, you will be reminded of those most special moments in your life.

Picture this: you and your soulmate finally tied the knot in a romantic setting, just the two of you, no family, no friends, no fuss. Eloping might seem like a daunting task, but with the right planning and preparation, it can be the most intimate and special day of your life.

I will be present to capture the details of your Elopement day, registering the raw emotions, and documenting the events as they happen. And everything will be marvelous, awe-inspiring, beautiful, and enjoyable. That is my assurance to you.

Embrace the adventure!


1) You`re looking to have fun with your photographer

Having fun with your photographer can mean different things to different people. Some couples want to be able to look back at their photos and laugh at all the silly faces they made, while others want to be able to interact and play around with their photographer to get some truly unique shots.

Don`t be afraid to be yourself! Be silly, be serious, be funny!

2) You have an adventurous soul!

Do you love exploring new places and trying new things? If so, you probably have an adventurous soul! People with an adventurous soul are usually curious and brave. They're also usually very open-minded and can easily adapt to new situations.

3) You`re ready to hit the dance floor the minute the Wobble drops

this high-energy dance is perfect for shaking off any wedding day nerves and getting everyone out on the dance floor. And the best part is, it's easy to learn! In just a few minutes, you and your guests will be ready to hit the dance floor and bust a move.

I say embrace it! There is no need to be afraid of a little dirt.

So go ahead and get a little dirty. It is perfectly OK!

5) You prefer meetings with cocktails, beer or wine

Not a drinker Don`t worry. I love all coffee, so we can always meet at a local coffee house or the Buck!

If you`re up for some amazing golden hour portraits, you`ll definitely want to know that Golden hour is the perfect time to take photos, as the light is soft and flattering.


The Investment

An investment into elopement photography is something you will cherish for your entire lifetime and the generations beyond. After you've stored your dress, the cake has been eaten, the flowers have wilted, the guests have left, and all that's left are memories - your photographs will forever remain. And it's those photographs that will tell your story.

Don`t see a package that meets your needs? I can create one based on your needs.
