Elopements vs. weddings

Modern elopements aren’t the same as they used to be, with many couples choosing to elope with family and friends involved in the plans. There are many different terms for small, intentional weddings, and the terms often get mixed up or have different meanings.

I specialize in elopements and intimate weddings in Michigan (but I travel all over the world, too).

Elopements

*For a couple and up to 10 guests

Elopements are a wedding day that’s focused on just the two of you, and allow you to have the most personal and stress-free wedding possible. You can invite a few guests as witnesses, but the day isn’t designed to be about the guest experience like a traditional wedding.

Because elopements are for just a few people, you have the ability to choose from many wild locations in nature that wouldn’t work well for a large group. You can incorporate any activities you’d like into your day, and the possibilities are endless!

Intimate Weddings

*For a couple and 10-40ish guests

An intimate wedding (sometimes called a “micro-wedding” or “small wedding”) is for couples who love the idea of an elopement but really want to share their experience with a small group of close friends and family.

Couples typically spend part of the day by themselves (or with me) and then after the ceremony they celebrate with their loved ones with a special dinner, drinks, dessert, and more. To make it easy, I’ve include intimate weddings in my elopement prices (for weddings under 40 guests).

How this works

1. Inquire

Contact me and we’ll set up a time to chat via phone or video call so we can get to know each other a little better and talk about your hopes and dreams.

2. Planning

Once you book with me, I’ll help you get everything planned so you’ll have the most amazing, unforgettable elopement possible!

3. Have the best wedding day ever!

You’ll be able to relax and enjoy your day, savoring each moment, and let me document your story naturally as it happens. You’ll be able to re-live your day and all the love every time you look through your photographs.

Andrea is an authentic photographer- she captures the unseen moments, the raw emotions, and the photos she took of our intimate ceremony were so “us.” Not only were our photos better than we expected, Andrea is an awesome person. -Jordan Barnett
