The Day Of:
Each elopement is going to be a wildly unique experience. My goal is to tell the story of your wedding day as it unfolds, as a witness to your own special adventure.
THE BEGINNING OF THE STORY
Your story begins well before you say your vows and exchange rings. The start of your day is the start of your story. Depending on what you want, I might be there from the very beginning, or meet up with you a little bit later, but either way I want to be able to set the scene and document what happened as you prepared for your ceremony.
The setting of your ceremony and the adventure you have on the way there are important parts of your story that I’ll photograph.
When we get to the spot where you’ll have your ceremony, I’ll help you get everything set up. Then I’ll be there to capture every detail of this unforgettable moment.
AFTER THE CEREMONY
I’ll let you have some time to soak everything in, then we’ll go make some incredible images together! I’ll be your guide as we do a little exploring, making amazing photos as we go along.
This part of your elopement day is really where your own unique style comes in. After your ceremony there are endless possibilities of how you could celebrate/wrap up your wedding day. Maybe you want to share a delectable, intimate meal together. Or read letters from family next to a campfire. Share a toast or eat some cupcakes. Or just hike back to your car and head home to snuggle. No matter what you decide to do, it will be perfect.
MY IDEAL CLIENTS
Are intentional about their wedding day and their photography. If you’re hiring a photographer just because you’re “supposed to”, then I’m probably not the right one for you. I want my clients to be excited to work with me, love my work, and trust my vision.
Go with the flow. I know from experience that plans don’t always go as expected. I really get along well with people who can let go and just enjoy themselves, and embrace the spontaneous.
Don’t care so much about having a lot of posed portraits, staged photos or Pinterest shots. i.e. your rings carefully balanced between your high heels, the dress hanging from a tree branch, etc. I’m more focused on real moments, raw emotions, and creatively capturing the story as it actually happens.
