What is an elopement?
To many people, their idea of an elopement is shameful way to get married. The meaning of an elopement has changed a lot over the years! Eloping isn’t exactly running away to get married anymore.
Modern elopements have taken on a whole new meaning. Your elopement is your chance to have your wedding day be anything you want it to be. What an elopement boils down to is this- YOU. An elopement is for you. It isn’t inviting a bunch of your family’s friends that you barely know, it isn’t throwing a big party that you may not even want. You elope for you. Who is going to matter more? The opinions of friends & family, or the person you are going to spend the rest of your life with?
What do you do on an elopement?
What you do on your elopement is totally up to you! You can hike up to an alpine lake in Glacier National Park, invite a few close friends & family to hear you say your vows along the Oregon coast, or take a Jeep through some amazing canyons & find a spot for your intimate ceremony in Moab. With your elopement, you don’t have to follow traditions & you can break all the rules!
Why have a photographer all day at an elopement?
Having a photographer all day at your elopement will allow you to relive your entire day. And you will be able to show any friends & family that weren’t invited what an incredible time you had. Having me there for the entire day means that I can basically just be a fly on the wall. Little moments happen & I’ll be there to photograph you every time you laugh, cry, or fall on your butt! Your elopement is more than just a ceremony & a little photoshoot, it’s just the start of your lives together & it is just as important & just as deserving of amazing photos as a more traditional wedding.
