On your elopement day there will be the three of us...
I provide consultations, and will help throughout the entire process. From location scouting and research to permit assistance. After briefly getting to know the two of you on the phone we can start planning something that is YOU. Whether it's an all day hiking adventure, air baloon ride, horse-back riding or just hiking and hanging out in a beautiful scenery, my job is to take beautiful photographs and create timeline for a smooth and memorable experience .
Prices & Packages
Each package is customizable. Your elopement day is not just a quick photoshoot. It's a story line that depending on an option you choose, starts with getting ready shots, the ceremony or your morning coffee, if you decide to go with all day coverage. There is a reason why you chose to elope as opposed having a traditional wedding. It's about the two of you and the few people (or furry friends) you may choose to include on this special day and it should be documented as such. My minimum coverage is 3 hours and includes coverage up to 20 guests. Some of my favorite elopement locations are listed below.
Utah offers such variety of landscapes no wonder it draws adventurous souls from all over. Whether you want to elope in Zion or Arches National Parks or on a National Forest the options are limitless. From Red Rock desert, to slot canyons, magical salt flats, green mountains with wildflowers and lakes up North. Contact me for custom location recommendations.
Colorado has so much to offer if you're looking for those grand mountain views and sense of wilderness. You can choose among many cute towns always surrendered by beautiful peaks. In the summer you can soak up the sun and enjoy wildflowers galore, in winter opt for a wonderland themed elopement. Whether by jeep or by foot, CO offers a great adventure.
PNW and California Elopements
One of my favorite parts of the USA, the Pacific Northwest remains one of the most popular elopement destinations. The diversity ranges from lush rain forest on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula to epic mountains such as Mt Rainier, the North Cascades or my personal favorite Mt Baker. Pick your scenery and let me scout the perfect spot for your elopement.

When we are ready to book, how do does it work?
Once you decided I am the right fit for you we would schedule a call/faceTime or Zoom call/text if you're prefer, and I would briefly go over the contract and payment details. I'd need you to sign the contract and send 500$ retainer to hold the spot, along with the remaining 25% balance so I can start initial work. Only upon receiving both signed contract/retainer I would start location research, permit assistance and further planning. Unlike a traditional wedding, elopements are more flexible and spontaneous in schedule, and nature, but also require some planning and logistics. So except of a date and tentative idea of the location we can from there.
When will we get our photos?
Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos ready for download within maximum 8 weeks (often sooner depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and order prints!
Why should we choose you over other photographers?
If you are looking just for quick smiley photos looking a camera, I am NOT a fit for you. I would dare to say, you don't need a professional photographer for those, because anyone with a phone can take these snapshots. You should hire me if you're looking for beautiful and professionalphotos of you and your loved one, on your most special day yet. I am very easy going person, and I will do my best to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, even though it may feel awkward at first. I also know how to capture candid documentary style photos of never seen before angles, emotions or expressions of yourselves when you're not paying attention to the camera. Trust me, clients love these! I am a published landscape photographer as well, and scouting beautiful locations, understanding the light and the clouds is my specialty. You're beautiful as you are, but with some magic, I can make you feel like you're the only ones in any grand landscape.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I''m based out of Salt Lake City, UT but I serve all of the west. From Colorado to the beautiful Pacific Northwest and California. I love traveling more than anything so I am available for destination elopements. As a landscape photographer I have been to over 40 countries and I can recommend some amazing places outside of USA.
How many pictures will we receive?
Roughly 75 photos per hour of coverage. For instance for a 8 hours coverage, you will receive between 500 to 600 fully edited images. I always choose quality rather than quantity and that''s why I will select the best and more significant photos to tell your story but because I often have a hard time narrowing down expect a lot of extras:)
Do you do other photoshoots?
Absolutely. I do any couples photoshoot whether it's and engagement session, casual fun photoshoot or adventure session that would include some activity such as hiking or biking. i am also available for proposals and anniversary photoshoots. All love is welcome.
