About Your Elopement Photographer

I live for being outside! Elopements allow me to share the amazing outdoor places I love with couples who then make these locations their special places.

I like to do a bit of everything from canyoneering in Moab to snowshoeing up a mountain & snorkeling in the ocean to hiking another fourteener in Colorado. I’m always looking for new places & new experiences & that’s why I love to travel! I like to get off the beaten path & see things most people haven’t seen.

I want to help you elope in a way that is totally unique to what you want to do & where you want to go!

Learn more about the experience of working with me & how I will help you every step of the way for a fun & adventurous wedding experience.

How to Make Your Elopement Day Special by Choosing an Epic Location.

For an Epic Elopement Day, You Need Someone Who is More than Just a Photographer…

THAT’S WHY EXTENSIVE PLANNING ASSISTANCE IS INCLUDED WITH EVERY ELOPEMENT PACKAGE!

Most elopement packages don’t allow much for customizations, but when you work with me, the sky is the limit! You’re not stuck with a few set locations or some preplanned activities. What I offer isn’t cookie cutter elopement packages. I am here to help make your day whatever you want it to be!

Stop thinking about what a wedding day “should” be & start thinking of anything & everything that your elopement day could be!

What the Heck Do Couples Do at an All Day Elopement?!

“Where Do You Travel?”

I travel anywhere you want to elope! My base packages include all of my travel so I “ship for free” to Colorado, Utah, & parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Idaho, & Wyoming! If you want to elope outside these areas, I have packages that include my travel to other parts of the U.S. or even other countries. There are no extra fees & you just have to get yourselves there, no need for you to worry about me!
