let's make it epic!

Elopements are often seen as being a quick thing but you want this to be an event, reserved for two, with no rush just a whole lotta being in the moment. I FEEL you. But here’s the thing love birds… the type of dreamy untraditional adventure your heart desires TOO requires plannin and preppin. Hiring me as your elopement photographer alsoooo means you get a planner! 2 for 1 - sweet deal, I know! THIS is what I do best. Prep, plan, and have a kick ass time with you and my camera in hand! Fun fact is I debated even becoming travel agent at one point! 

How does an intimate sunset I do followed by a beach picnic or brewery tour sound, you can even invite your closest friends and family, or horseback riding on the beach, recreate your first date, get matching tattoos, rent a boat and sail into the sunset sippin that bubbly, renting a cute airbnb and hire a chef to cook you dinner, whatever it is - let’s dream it up together! 

Are you overwhelmed with the thoughts of seating and table arrangements? 

My gas is tanked and my bag is packed, let's do this! 
Does traditional give you the ick?
