Jadie +Alex | adventure hiking elopement in Arches National Park in Moab, Utah with a black wedding dress
I believe elopements are the best way to get married...

Whether you want to hike to a remote location at sunrise or drive to an overlook in a Jeep at sunset, adventurous elopements can be anything you want them to be. Witnessing you both commit your lives to each other is such a huge privilege for me. Adventurous elopements aren't something I just do, my life is an adventure.

You can find me hiking mountain passes, rock climbing, planning another trip to Mexico, nose buried in some travel guides, looking up cheap flights to Australia, or off on some crazy 3 week long road trip to the Canadian Rockies with my cousins. I will help guide you through the entire process of planning an amazing experience. You can trust me with your wedding day dreams & will give you my all in planning out every little detail for your elopement.

Malachi photographed our vow renewal in Colorado. He was so amazing with coordination. We had a meet 'n' greet via Skype where I learned about his photography background & what inspires him, as well as shared my vision of our 10-year vow renewal. He offered really great recommendations on locations in Colorado over our month of planning as we were from out of state. He even put together my bouquet for me. What a man of many talents! The day of our vow renewal was an adventure! Spring in the Rockies is so unpredictable and we were caught in spring snow storm all day during our hike. But Malachi was patient, let me borrow his gloves when mine were soaked, and made sure we had fun every step of the way. The photos and video he delivered to us were exceptional and I couldn't be more happy. Thank you Malachi for giving us these memories to hold on to forever. If you're looking for an adventurous photo session or a unique way to celebrate an elopement or vow renewal, Malachi of Shell Creek Photography is the best choice.

Amazing! Both my new husband and I are quite awkward in front of a camera and Malachi took such amazing shots no one can tell. He did our engagement & wedding photos both of which are still being praised by our family and friends. He caught our favorite memories of the day that will forever be cherishes. Best of all we received our pictures within a month of the wedding & even received multiple shots the morning after!

Malachi was exceptional for our outdoor Colorado wedding. We loved our the experience with Malachi and would highly recommend him for anyone interested in making the most of using the outdoors as a back drop for their photos.
