Elopements & Intimate Weddings

the ultimate adventure

So you're getting married. Congrats!

Stressing about planning a wedding with all the family drama, challenges with who to invite, paying for things by the guest-count, dancing in front of everyone even though you literally haven't danced like that since prom and those aren't the memories you want in your head during your big day?


There's another way.

Your Day.

Your Way.

There's an old term that's getting redefined these days. Eloping. It no longer means running away in secret to tie the knot in Vegas. Don't get me wrong, if that's your style, you can totally do that. But it doesn't have to be that.

And that's the beauty of it. Modern elopements give you a way to create your big day so it actually feels the way it should - comfortable, exciting and full of love - instead of being pressured to perform and appease the guests.

And that's where I come in.

More than just your photographer, I'm your cheerleader, your confidant, your support system.

It takes GUTS to ditch the traditional path, and I'm here to empower you to create the best possible version of your wedding day!

Whether that's deep in the woods of a national park, at a river-side campsite, near a black-sand beach or on a mountain with the clouds beneath you, I am HERE for the adventure!

Sound like your kind of thing?


The best thing about eloping is that it can be whatever you want it to be! I truly believe that eloping is for anyone who isn't overly-excited about the though of a big wedding. You can step away from the traditions and expectations and instead make your day just that - yours.

EVEN THOUGH ELOPING IS FOR ANYONE, I MIGHT NOT BE.

BUT IF YOU...


Live for adventure and want your big day to reflect that

Value experiences over physical things

Know that love is LOVE and support the LGBTQIA community

Aren't afraid to roll with the punches and adapt to whatever life throws at you

Believe that the best things in life are worth fighting for

Are untraditional and are looking for a secular or non-religious way to celebrate your love

Have a deep appreciation for landscapes and want to make sure this beauty is fostered for generations to come

Want candid, docu-style photos to help you remember the start of your big adventure clearly


THEN I AM ABSOLUTELY YOUR GAL!

LGBTQIA representation

Sup, my name is Allison and I'm bisexual. And I'm here for EVERY couple, especially those who have a harder time finding support in the world.

Backcountry knowledge

Being raised in the PNW, I have over 500 miles of hiking under my belt. Backcountry safety, 10 essentials & leave no trace principles are all at the root of what I do.

My AirBnb is full of unique stays, my AllTrails account full of trails I've hiked, my Google Maps full of stellar florists. Looking for something spectacular? I got you covered.

Custom timeline crafting

Hate building itineraries? You're in luck because that kind of thing is EXACTLY my jam. Let me take that off of your to-do list.

30+ images per hour

I focus on quality over quantity. But even then, most of my final delivered albums are over 300 images. You're guaranteed at least 30 expertly-edited final images per hour to remember your day with.

48-hour sneak peeks

Believe it or not, I'm just as obsessed with your day as you are. I can't help myself from starting that editing process when I get home at midnight after your day. You'll have 3-5 final images before the high of your day has even faded.

Choosing to elope is a big fucking deal. Doing things outside the norm tends to come with some push-back. When you need someone in your corner to help communicate your choice to your family, ensure your friends that they can still be involved, or just need a break from planning all the details, I'm always just a phone call away!

The Process


Ready to take the leap and start planning your dream elopement? Here's how we do it.

1. Book a Consultation


If you haven't already, reach out to inquire about your date through my contact form, or just book a free consultation.


Don't let the lingo fool ya. We're just going to get to know each other and I'll answer any questions you have. There's no pressure to book.

2. Find the Best Package


Once we chat and feel like we're a good fit, it's time to figure out what kind of coverage will best tell your story.


If you're still in the beginning phases of planning and haven't narrowed down a place or don't know how much coverage you'll need, don't worry! We can always figure out the details later.

3. Sign on the Dotted Line


This is the boring part. BUT it's also the part that makes sure we're both on the same page about expectations.


Once the contract is signed and your retainer is paid, you're officially booked! Time to break out the bubbly!

4. Plan Your Adventure


Now comes the reason why you're here in the first place. Time to plan your ultimate adventure!


I have resources to help you along the planning process, but in the beginning let your imagination run wild. Anything is possible. What do you want your day to be?

FAQ

How do we even start planning an elopement?

GREAT question! With so many details to juggle it can feel overwhelming, but there's four big things you can focus on. The when, where, who, and how. Let's chat!

How long does it take to get our pictures?

I deliver 3-5 sneak peek photos within 48 hours of your wedding day and full album delivery takes 4 weeks.

Where can I see the pricing for all of your packages?

Let's book a consultation call! There's never any pressure to book on these calls, but with how many different variations and factors that go into an elopement, getting to know what exactly you're looking for will help me filter out irrelevant information and give you the info you need.

How many pictures will we receive?

All elopement packages guarantee a minimum of 30 images per hour of coverage. That means you'll be getting HUNDREDS of photos of your big day!

Most of my couples have said the exact same thing, and of course that's okay! We'll get to know each other so you can feel more at ease, and I'll provide all the prompts to get you looking your best! Photos look the best when you're genuinely in the moment, so just forget about me and y'all will be BEAUTIFUL!
