Adventure Elopements

elkdarkgreen

As an elopement photographer I think there is something pretty freaking special about the couples who look at each other and say “all I need on my wedding day is YOU.”

Adventure elopements are where my heart is. Heading off to a beautiful and remote spot with an awesome couple to celebrate their love in a way that is personal and meaningful to them? It brings me a whole lot of joy.

And getting to document the whole thing and take the photos that will tell the stories for years to come? Its the icing on the cake. Your elopement photographer is the eyes of all the people who couldn’t be there for your wedding day. You need that story to be told well!

What is an adventure elopement?

From little nooks in the forest to alpine lakes to the tops of mountains, an adventure elopement gives you the chance to make one of the biggest days of your life all about the two of you - having a grand adventure. This could mean climbing a mountain, saying your vows next to a waterfall in Iceland, or hiking that special trial you've done a hundred times. Its about getting off the grid and focusing on each other and what matters most.
As an elopement photographer I wear many hats.
(and not just the fuzzy ones I wear in the mountains!)
Adventure Elopement Planning

While weddings tend to follow a script, elopements give you a chance to do things your way. That's great, but it presents some unique challenges!

I'm not just there to be your elopement photographer - I'm there to help you plan. From figuring out logistics to navigating permits requirements to suggesting the best types of shoes to wear, I'm here to help you every step of the way.

You're probably not eloping so that you can spend MORE time planning - I'll help take some of that off your plate.

Elopement Location Scouting

Most of my elopement clients come to me without knowing exactly where they want to elope. Often they'll have a general geographic region (like Colorado or Iceland) but beyond that they're a little lost.

This is where I come in. As an avid explorer and traveler I have a long list of places I've been ... and a bunch of places where I'm dying to go ... that would be perfect for an adventure elopement. They're spots that are beautiful, wild, and off the beaten path.

From long hikes to towering waterfalls to little known pull offs on mountain passes, whether its here in Colorado or somewhere far away, we'll work together to find the perfect spot.

Your Elopement Day!

I put a very high priority on you getting to actually EXPERIENCE your elopement day. The last thing I want is for you to look back on one of the biggest days of your life and remember it as one long photoshoot.

I'll be there with you to button you into your dress, help you find the perfect spot, and pop champaign with you to celebrate!

Don't worry, we'll take all those amazing photos ... but we'll also take the time to enjoy the day for what it is. Out of 7 billion people on the planet you found the one crazy person who is willing to adventure with you through thick and thin (and sometime through mud, snow, and rain ...). That's huge!
