What is an elopement?

In the weeks leading up to my wedding, I remember my husband's grandfather (who funnily enough was a former Lutheran pastor) encouraging us to elope. He joked that he would give us a ladder as an early wedding present. The visions he conjured were, and are, pretty laughable. Imagine a young couple, quietly escaping through a bedroom window and down a ladder, much to their family's disapproval. Though I think the imagery my husband's grandfather associated with eloping is pretty far off the mark, his suggestion to go that route wasn't. For a long time, elopements were regarded as something that were a bargain, base, socially unacceptable, and thrown together at the last moment. This isn't the case anymore.

 

Do you and your partner value experiences over things? If adventure makes your heart skip a beat, like it does mine, you've come to the right place. It's my goal to capture, perhaps, the most important day of your lives and to make it an experience that both reflects your love and will truly be something that is authentically you. Maybe this means hiking to an epically beautiful location and saying your vows from the summit of a stunning mountain top in a national park in the US, Scotland, or Switzerland. (I've hiked all over the world, and I would love nothing more than to hit the trails with you. I would be so happy to discuss your favourite hikes, and how we can incorporate your love of hiking into your day.) Perhaps your idea of perfection is gathering around a massive waterfall in Iceland with twenty of your closest friends and family members, as you commit your lives to each other. Or your idea of the perfect day might be planning an exciting micro road trip in a new destination, experiencing the local environment for the first time as a married couple, stopping to taste wine at local vineyards, driving to a scenic vantage point overlooking the sea and even taking a dip together, and saying your vows in a stunningly beautiful location along the way. There are no rules besides the fact that the day and ceremony should be about one thing: you and your love. I'm here to help you make that a reality. I am a bottomless fount of ideas, and I want to create the most incredible day ever, tailored to what YOU love. 

Distilled down to its most essential components, an elopement is an authentic and intentional event that focuses on the one and only most important thing: the two of you. The most liberating and exciting thing about elopements is that the world is your oyster! You can break all the rules and create a day that truly reflects you and your love. A common misconception is that elopements are just a couple hours with a photographer in gorgeous clothes and a beautiful location. However, this couldn't be further from the truth. It's so much more than a quick photoshoot on a mountaintop. Just as a larger, traditional wedding deserves to be beautifully and thoughtfully documented in its entirety, so does the day you say your vows and commit your love to one another. This is about beautifully and organically documenting the most important day of your life. My aim, most importantly, is to help guide you through the process of creating a care-free, memorable, and meaningful experience that embodies your love, one that you will want to tell your great-grandchildren (and anyone else who has ears) about. I offer a variety of packages for different locations all over the world. Let's do this!

I also photograph vow renewals. If this is something that interests you, fill out the contact form and we can discuss a custom package! 

What to expect on the day...

The day that you formally commit to sharing the rest of your life with another soul should be meaningful, intentional, and embody the essence of the deep and unique love you share. The important thing is that, whether a big wedding on an elopement, I'm here to preserve the invaluable memories from that day. 

I'll spend loads of time, guiding you through the process of building a timeline for your day and researching what amazing experiences you will have as you start this new chapter in your lives together. The timeline we firm up will detail the best time for various experiences, getting ready, getting to your location, saying your vows, and ending your first evening as one. Though I'm happy to capture as much of your day as you like, with most couples, I preserve the memories of you getting ready in the morning, the ceremony, a portrait session, and then, depending on the package you choose, some of the afterparty. On the day of your wedding or elopement, I will be there ensure you will have memories of your day forever, and even maybe help get you into your dress. My style is moody and documentary. While I'm there to lend a hand throughout your day, I love to step back, let you enjoy it, and document it without being in your face all the time. I flit about throughout the day, documenting all of the details, ensuring that you won't forget the big things or the little ones. Our time together is relaxed and fun. I aim to capture couples in their most natural element and try to keep things as laid-back as possible. Does this sound like your cup of tea? Let's get the ball rolling and chat!
