Newly married couples have so little time together on their wedding day. They’re too busy being the center of attention (and paying attention to their guests).
I spent years photographing big, traditional weddings, and I always encouraged couples to sneak away for a few moments just to be with each other.
Those moments were like coming up for air. They made the best photo opportunities — and created incredible memories for the couples.
Elopements offer that same breath of fresh air… But it lasts all day.
Ready to create an experience that’s 0% expectations and 100% you??
This day is about making memories, not posing for hundreds of shots. You may even forget the camera is there!
Stash your phone in your backpack and savor each amazing moment — I’ll handle the camera.
Together, we'll plan the day you've always envisioned (with breathing room for unexpected joy).

Your day isn’t about making everyone else happy. Elopements give you permission to say yes to everything traditional weddings frown on.
Wear your hiking boots.
Get breathless saying your vows at 8,000 feet.
Have your dog witness the marriage license. (It’s legal in Colorado!)
Sip from a shared flask after saying “I do.”
Take a nap in the middle of the day. (You’re probably gonna need it.)
Start traditions you’ll come back to for the rest of your life together.
And that’s just off the top of my head.
Let your imagination run wild… What does your perfect day look like?
I’ll handle the photos and timeline so you can focus completely on making memories that last forever.
THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE
I’ll create and share a detailed, personalized inspiration guide to help you plan the perfect day from the moment you wake up.
YOUR ELOPEMENT PLAN
I’ll get to know you as a couple — and everything you’re dreaming about for your elopement.
OUR FIRST CALL
HERE'S HOW TO GET STARTED
Mountaintop vistas. Winding trails. Hidden lakes. Fields of wildflowers and tall grasses.
Whatever brings you peace, wherever you feel most alive... Let's pack up and go.
The morning I eloped with my now-husband, Shayne, we woke up early for a sunrise ceremony on a lake shore.
We spent hours paddleboarding and played with our dogs, then we met up with our parents for a second ceremony.
After that, our best friends joined us for the weekend: kayaking, tubing down the river on giant flamingo floats, and generally acting like kids again.
At the end of it all, we fell into an exhausted, elated heap. It was perfect.
And that’s how it should feel for everyone.
Before the camera ever comes out, it’s my job to help you plan a day you want to relive over and over. The photos are the frozen-in-time cherry on top.
