Congratulations on your exciting decision to elope.

So much more than your photographer…

My job as your elopement photographer is so much more than the logistics, to-do lists, tasks and capturing memories on your day. I can take care of all the little details so you can both completely relax and immerse yourself in the experience.

I can help my clients with planning and support you both every step of the way. I understand how important it is for every detail of your wedding day to reflect who you are and what your love stands for.

Capturing amazing images doesn’t happen without a connection though. I like to build genuine relationships with the couples I work with. So it’s important we get to know each other. As we embark upon this adventure together, you need to feel at ease around me or you’ll never feel liberated enough to be your true self. And when your photographer feels like an intrusion on your day, everything feels awkward and we risk missing out of those intimate and silly moments

The Ultimate Elopement Experience

Each and every shoot is as unique as it should be. The way I tell my clients’ stories never changes but every vision is different. Every person I work with gets my full attention and the very best of my skills. You deserve your own experience based on your unique and loving relationship. I promise to make the whole process as stress-free as possible.

Here’s literally everything I can do for you

Actually, there’s very little I’m not prepared to do to make this one of the greatest and most memorable days of your lives. Being your elopement photographer and guide means more than just showing up on the day, pointing my camera and shooting. I’m invested in the planning process and focusing on creating that once-in-a-lifetime experience. And here’s how we do this:

DATE & LOCATION

I can guide you with both of these critical decisions when we have our initial chat. My Instagram page is good source of inspiration for different locations – and most of my couples had no idea these places even existed.

START PLANNING TOGETHER

I will go through your questionnaire and notes from our discovery meeting in-depth to make sure I understand everything while I’m getting to know you. I am to provide you with:

  • Location ideas and timings
  • Support with a timeline for your day from start to finish
  • Elopement vendor suggestions including hair and makeup artists, florists, personal chef, chauffeur or even a private jet it that’s your jam. If you need it, the chances are I know a guy or gal who can.
  • Unique ideas. Think hiking, kayaking, your first dance on a private yacht, dinner served on a jet...the sky is literally the limit. I’ll even jump out of a plane with you if that's what you want. I’m pretty terrified of heights but as Meatloaf famously said: I will do anything for love!
  • You can always come to me with questions; remember, I’m your guide, at your disposal.

Experience a whole new level of romance

When I married Patrick our wedding day did not reflect us. We booked a church, a classy hotel and had a party with 100 close family and friends. We spent a small fortune and endured a logistical nightmare because we thought this was just how weddings had to be.

We barely remember the day at all. Sure, we have tons of photos, but were so busy making sure everyone was where they needed to be that when it came to taking photos many were posed and unnatural. Patrick and I barely had a moment to speak to one other and were too exhausted to even kiss goodnight.

If we’d known then what we know now we’d have put the money spent on invitations, bands, DJ, venues and all the trimmings to much better use. We’d have married abroad (we’re both globetrotters), picked a dream once-in-lifetime location for an ultimate romantic experience unique to us.

Now I know this whole other level of romance can be experienced through elopements I want nothing more than for you to experience this unforgettable adventure in a way that’s authentic to both of you.
