Elopement Photography

the experience

captured by marcela

I’m here to help you craft the elopement experience of your dreams and create unforgettable photos that are full of feeling and help you treasure your memories for a lifetime.

Your elopement photography experience should be about so more than just beautiful photos. It should explore your love and deepen your relationship. And your images should spark that intense connection and intimacy you experienced that day.

FOCUSING ON YOUR RELATIONSHIP

ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

I'm going to slow you down during this whole process. Your wedding day will be here before you know it and when it's all said and done, it can seem like the whole process flew by. I want you to enjoy your engagement and the process of planning your wedding. I'll also slow you down on your wedding day to enjoy each other and amazing day you've created.

I only take on a select number of clients each year so I can focus my attention on each and every one of them. I take time to get to know you and learn about your likes, dislikes, passions and insecurities so that by the time we meet to photograph your amazing day, I'm more than just a stranger behind a camera asking you to smile. You'll feel comfortable and relaxed right from the start!

Limited Booking

Slowing Down

I take the time to get to know you not just as a clients, a job, or a paycheck. I LOVE having that connection with my couples, because when your day comes I get to celebrate with you!

Building off a background in photojournalism, I seek to capture candid moments of love. They tell a story that helps you remember what you were feeling, even years later.

I'll create space for real emotion and connection between you and your partner. We’ll play games, we’ll have a conversation and you'll share beautiful moments of your love story.

Are you wanting to document a day spent in love with your partner? Adventure sessions are the way to go. This could be an engagement shoot, surprise proposal, in-door sessions, or just an adventurous outing.

*Note: this cannot be used for an elopement. Your elopement deserves so much more!

ADVENTURE SESSIONS
Explore your love

adventure sessions

I donate 5% of every session to your choice of one of three charities.

Each charity is Colorado based and serves people, animals or the environment. I also believe in supporting charities that spend funds on causes rather than CEO salaries. Each charity below received a 4-star review and an overall score of over 90% from Charity Navigator meaning it exceeded industry standards and outperformed most charities in its cause. 

I believe in making a difference

giving back

I deliver fully-edited images. I never deliver RAW, or unedited, images as they are not a reflection of my work. Every photo has my custom look applied, and is adjust for things like brightness and optimal color. I will remove small blemishes that aren't usually there but I generally don’t retouch images more than that. Your skin is part of you and your beauty and I want to capture it as authentically as I can. 

Do you edit or retouch images?

My travel fees are included in all my packages as long as I can access your location via commercial airline and 2WD. They only time there would an additional fee is if your location is more remote and requires a charter plane or if I need to rent a high clearance 4WD.

Other than that, I'll take care of my own travel costs! You don't have to worry about additional travel fees like hotel stays or meal purchases.

Tell me more about travel costs

I know from personal experience that it can seem like ages when you're waiting for images. My photographer took 12 weeks to deliver my images!

That's why I work hard to deliver them within 4-6 weeks (but generally sooner than that). I also make sure to send over some sneak peeks soon after your elopement day so you can share with family and friends!

When will we receive our images?

Because you receive high-resolution, un-watermarked photos, you are welcome to print them at any shop but printing via me guarantees the best quality. You can order these prints from your personalized gallery.

Along with professional quality prints you can also order calendars, announcements, and frames through our partnered labs. I test the prints and colors to my labs’ printers to make sure your photos print accurately and beautifully.

Where can we buy prints?

In addition to elopements, I also love to capture other wild adventures like a canoe or kayak engagement session, helicopter elopement, camping wedding, desert session, tree-house engagement, beach elopement, trash the dress session, a multi-day adventure, backpacking session and much more!

Do you only photograph elopements?

On average, I provide about 50 images per hour of shooting. This number varies depending on the weather, how your day unfolds, the type of session and time. Elopements range anywhere from 200-400 photos. Couples sessions are typically around 100.

I believe in quality over quantity and aim to deliver the best of the best photos from your day.

How many images can we expect?

Because my travel schedule & pricing structure is constantly evolving, I generally don't book elopements more than 18 months out (with the exception of international destination weddings).

Couples usually book elopements anywhere from 3-12 months out. If you're more spontaneous or just eager to get married and want a last minute elopement, definitely reach out! I might have a space just for you. 

How far in advance should we book?

Couples sessions can be for engagement photos, honeymoon photos, day-after sessions, anniversary photos, vow renewals, or just cause you wanna. I’ll help you plan a session that tells your story, including location suggestions, activities, and assistance with outfit planning. It can be as simple as a cozy morning in a cabin, or as adventurous as climbing a mountain. Couples sessions can’t be used for an elopement (because your wedding day deserves a whole lot more than that) and I have other packages specifically for elopements!

Couples session vs elopement

Absolutely! I want to make it very clear that I support of love & marriage for all.

I believe that everyone deserves to have the perfect wedding day and we want to help you make yours just that.

Love is love and it comes in many forms. I'm just thrilled to be able to capture it!

Will you photograph lgbtq+ ceremonies?

Absolutely. In fact I prioritize these session Because I am a storyteller at heart, I want to tell the whole story – before & after and in-between. This type of coverage works well if you're camping out with your friends the night before, or traveling to a destination with all of your family, or backpacking to a spot for your adventure elopement. I want to capture it all.

Do you offer full-weekend coverage?
