Adventure Elopements + Weddings

 

This isn’t your typical stressful, boring and staged wedding photoshoot.

 

If you have poked around at our images, you have seen the authentic, adventurous & playful moments we capture.

We aren’t just showing up and going through the motions. We will adventure with you, guide you & explore the windy shorelines or high mountaintops with you!

We believe in adventure, REAL experiences & capturing your love story in those same ways.

You will feel relaxed & totally confident on camera because our shooting style is about the two of you connecting deeply, not about a full day photoshoot.

This isn’t going to be a day filled with those “perfect” looking into the camera with forced smiles moments…

there’s going to be wind in your hair, your going to be laughing until your cheeks hurt & squeezing each other so dang tight you can’t breathe!

Why Elope?

Have you ever dreamt about getting married somewhere epic?!

Imagine this –>

You hop off the plane in a new city, grab your luggage then head to your Airbnb to settle in for the night… those, “I’m marrying my best friend tomorrow” butterflies in your stomach start fluttering about!!

You fall asleep in their arms and dream about all the incredible moments you’re about the share together. You wake up, get ready together (or maybe you surprise them with a fun first look).

After that, heading in the general direction of your ceremony spot. - You wander around this epic environment, soaking in the adventure of your wedding day, until you stumble upon the most breathtaking view, giving you both the, “THIS IS IT” vibes!! A spot that truly speaks to you. - You know this very spot, today, will be where you promise yourselves to one another in the most genuine and meaningful way. Marking the moments of your first grand adventure together as a married couple! - What an experience!

Don't Know Where to Elope?

Or maybe you have a rough idea, but aren’t 100% sure…

We can absolutely help find your dream elopement spot!

Having traveled to many epic locations, we literally know hundreds of great places to have your vow ceremony,

whether is an 11 mile hike into the Montana mountains or a 1/2 mile jaunt in Minnesota (yes, the midwest is pretty too, just gotta know where to look!)

We provide you with our exclusive wedding and elopement planning guides to help you pack for the trail, how to choose the perfect elopement adventure, etc.

When it’s finally the day, we will meet early, do a quick gear check, go over the final plan, then hit the trail (or head up to the ceremony spot if hiking isn’t really your thing, but you still love epic mountainous views!!)

 

Not getting married but still looking for an adventure to celebrate the two of you?

Adventure sessions are the perfect way to be fully immersed & present with each other, all the while, experiencing an awesome journey into some of the wildest landscapes our feet can find!

Together, we will plan on outdoor adventure that truly inspires you both & allows you to be your authentically in love selves!!

After all the adventure planning comes the really fun part.

We will arrive at the location. (Whether it be in the mountains of Hatcher Pass in Alaska, a trailhead in Glacier National Park, or a favorite location of yours.)

Pack our gear together to ensure we are not forgetting anything… especially trail snacks!!

Then it’s final logistics. We will go through outfits, check the weather & do final preps for the trek.

Definitely plan for some hiking as we explore around to the scenic spots! Also, be prepared to brave the elements, some of my favorite sessions are when the sky is moody and the trails are totally empty!

 

If your just a part time adventurer,
don’t worry, I got you boo….

There are plenty of breathtaking mountain views, rivers, caves, glaciers, etc. just a small walk from the car!

So don’t worry if your not a huge hiker you can still get some killer views & do some light adventuring for your couple session too!

 
 

Re-invent the way you start your lives together! Stress free & all about that love stuff!
