My goal is to create a seamless wedding experience for every client. From our first interaction to the final delivery of your wedding photos, I want you to feel completely taken care of. Once we make it official, I will help guide you in picking a location for your engagement session or your elopement, and getting started looking for your dream team of vendors! I will send you my welcome guide to help you feel prepared for this unique experience with vendor recommendations, sample timelines, and lots of tips & tricks! Last but not least, I will assist in your day-of timeline planning to ensure nothing is missed and everything runs smoothly. 


You deserve a day that looks and feels like you - whether that be a big party of a wedding, or a small intimate gathering in the mountains, I believe your wedding should be what YOU want it to be. That's why it's so important for me to get to know my couples! I want to know things like if you two are more introverted or extroverted (outgoing introvert here!), how you enjoy spending time together, your favorite drinks (anything with tequila for me!), what's your favorite memory together, etc! Getting to know you two allows me to capture your unique love exactly how it is so that years down the road when you look back on these photos, it will feel exactly as it was in those moments.

Your love is rare - Your wedding should be too


2. Share Your VISION with me

3. Choose your location & time of year

Yas! You’ve decided to get married and you have chosen me as your photographer.

Our first consultation is a chance for you to share all of your wedding ideas! We will discuss locations, color palettes, and fun details to infuse throughout your day. I want my couples to express and celebrate authentically! Taking the time to get to know you allows me to share recommendations that scream “this is SO us”!

After our consultation, I will send you a formal location questionnaire to ensure that we capture all of your ideas, non-negotiables etc. Once submitted, you will receive a customized location list from me within a few weeks.

Now that we've decided to get married, how do we get started?

4. Determine your Budget

5. Book your dream team of vendors

6. Pick out your wedding attire

Did you know that the average traditional wedding costs $33,900 while an average elopement costs $15,350. Be sure to consider the costs involved when deciding what route to go while planning your dream wedding celebration! 

Hiring vendors isn’t necessarily about turning your day into a big production but about getting some help so you don’t have to do everything yourself! I will send you a few recommendations for vendors that I know are available for your location.

Once your location and vendors are finalized you will be able to choose wedding day attire! Depending on the intensity of your hike, you may want to wear hiking clothes and change into your wedding dress / suit once closer to the ceremony location. We can decide together!

7. Create your guest list (if any)

The best part about eloping is that you truly get to decide every detail of your day, including who is present. You are allowed up to 20 people in your elopement party, but usually my couples only invite a few witnesses, if any at all. If you are planning a traditional wedding, this doesn't apply :) Either way, we can create a plan together to accommodate your list! 

8. Make it legal

This depends on your state and/or country! Typically two witnesses are required for your ceremony to be legal. Once we decide on your wedding location we can discuss the requirements and plan accordingly. Alternatively, if you don’t want to bring anyone to your ceremony you don’t have to. Enjoy your wedding day and finalize the legalities at home.

9. Plan your dream day!

Now that we have built a SOLID foundation to your dream wedding celebration we get to focus on your day of experience. This includes finalizing the timeline of the entire day, what activities we want to include (a picnic, bringing your dog, popping champagne on a mountain top etc). This portion of your wedding planning helps us bring your vision to life! 

Your wedding is meant to be an experience that is 100% focused on you as a couple. Vulnerability and transparency about your love story allow your wedding photographer to truly “get it”. Creating a relationship with you is my number one priority as a photographer! I want you to feel seen and celebrated throughout this intimate experience. Understanding the details and quirks of you as a couple is not only useful for curating your love story, it's my favorite part!

Connection Matters

“There is no greater feeling than when two people who are perfect for each other overcome all obstacles and find true love.”

-Michael Scott

An adventure elopement is an intimate wedding experience completely customized by you. MOST adventure elopements involve a setting in nature - think awe-inspiring mountain views, roaring waterfalls, or vast desert landscapes. An adventure can also mean an epic day in the city or somewhere significant to you!

What is an adventure elopement?

Simply put, an elopement has less than 20 people and doesn’t have a full-on ceremony. An elopement is also a completely customized wedding experience. Intimate weddings follow a similar timeline and layout of a traditional wedding but with less guests. 

What is the difference between adventure elopements and intimate weddings?

Eloping is perfect for the couple seeking a wedding ceremony that is fully focused on their love! In the past, eloping was seen as running away to get married. Today it is simply an alternative way to get married without external pressures and the need for a huge production. 

Should we elope?

Wherever your heart desires! Seriously - choose a place that you have always wanted to explore, a location that has special meaning to you, or ask me for recommendations! One of the coolest parts of my job is sharing the hidden gems that I have found throughout my years of experience. 

Where Should we elope?

This depends on the location you choose. I typically recommend spring and summer months to ensure the best weather and lighting possible! 

When Should we elope?

Fill out my contact form! You can find that here. Please be as detailed as possible!

How do we start the process?

An adventure elopement isn’t traditional. It’s an opportunity to showcase your love in a way that feels inspired and authentic. Think dreamy desert landscape or jaw-dropping mountain views. The ceremony can have two people or twenty. An adventure elopement is a celebration that replaces pressure and expectations with excitement and fun!

What if we want to elope?

Wedding photography is an investment, plain and simple. Investing your time and resources into a photographer that genuinely cares, makes a world of difference. My creative process reflects this care by capturing you for who you really are. Fostering real connection and friendship allows you to relax and just be YOU. This experience is a collaboration and I promise to share the resources, insights, and guides that I’ve acquired throughout my years of experience. 

Why hire me as your Washington wedding or elopement photographer?

Don't have a plan yet?
Don't worry!

You’ve decided to get married, but that’s it (and that’s totally cool!). I don’t even need a date or location finalized. If you’re ready to inquire, don’t hold back because you don’t have the details figured out yet!

One of my goals as a wedding photographer is to create a completely customized experience from the moment we connect. I am here to help you make the best decisions possible for your dream elopement and have excellent tools to assist you along the way. After we decide to work together, you’ll be sent location ideas, questionnaires, any resources you may need to create a seamless and FUN experience. Let’s do this!
