Eloping

Definition: Eloping focuses on the couple, their connection, and celebrating in a way that’s best for them. It disregards societal perceptions of weddings and only focuses on what the couple wants to do on their day with only the people they truly want present.

What is an elopement?

Eloping isn't what it once was. Even within the last few years, the definition has drastically changed. 

Today, weddings have become a business to be monetized. When you elope, you refocus your day on what matters most: your love and lifelong commitment. Eloping is intentionally deciding to focus on what you want with only the people you actually want there. 

Elopements today are whatever you want them to be. That's the main key here. It's only what you want and nothing else. Weddings have added so many extras that may not mean anything to you. Eloping is taking everything you "should" do and throwing out. 

So you want to elope with only the two of you? Go for it. You want to invite those you love most? Sounds perfect. Skip the wedding dress or go all out on a dress? Both are perfect. 

At the end of the day, your marriage is about you and no one else. Let the arbritrary wedding rules go and let it be about the only thing that truly matters.

More than a photographer...

I'm here for more than just photographing your day.  I'm here to help you create the day of your dreams. 

An elopement is just as much of a wedding as a huge, traditional wedding.

I once stood where you are. I chose the less traditional route, at the expense of some people's opinions, to have a day that was authentic for us. First and foremost, I'm here to reassure you that it's worth it. Pick what you want and nothing else. I'll be here to tell you you're doing it perfectly when everyone else says you are doing it wrong. 

It's your wedding, your day. Whatever you pick is perfect as long as it's perfect for you. 

Love nature but not very outdoorsy? Looking for something specific? I'm here to help you pick the location that will fit you perfectly. I'm also here to ensure we stay safe. I won't take you anywhere that I can't 200% guarantee your safety.

Let's turn your wedding visions into wedding reality.
