On the day I got married, we signed our marriage license on our friend’s backs under a treehouse next to our pizza food truck. This is why I recommend doing it your way.

MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER & GUIDE

When I’m shooting I’m a normal human being total goof, creating a fun atmosphere where it’s easy for you to feel comfortable being YOURSELF. The word “professional” in front of “photographer” is a little hard for me to stomach, since I lie in the dirt A LOT. But what I lack in dignity I make up for in sound effects. I’ve been shooting people in love full-time since 2013 though, so I guess I must accept the title. I am also an “adult”. I met my husband when I moved to Colorado in 2015 – literally, on my first night- and now we have a forever sleepover. I recommend it all.

I’M NOMADIC!

OUR BIGGEST ADVENTURE YET

In August 2021, my partner and I sold our house, downsized everything we own, and bought a live-in 5th wheel camper. Now we live nomadically on the road and travel across the USA shooting amazing elopements along the way. And yes, we brought the cats 🙂

This allows us to embrace our love of travel and the great outdoors. We now live where we work and play. We also get to meet up with YOU wherever you desire. See my elopement location guides to start brainstorming!

I. FREAKING. LOVE.

NATIONAL. PARKS.

I’m at my happiest when I’m exploring a new place. Or when I’m sharing it with new friends. Or maybe photographing people there..

7-TIME FEARLESS
AWARD WINNER.

Fearless awards are for
outstanding candid photography.

It’s basically the wedding photography olympics and these are my gold medals.
I won’t miss your moments.

This makes me the best national park photographer for you if you value authentic, candid photography.

I’m also #1 in the USA and #2 Worldwide for storytelling and authenticity in elopements.




I LOVE NATIONAL PARKS, SO I LEAVE NO TRACE

It’s so important to leave the earth better than we found it. I’m prepared and committed to being a steward of the outdoors. I love responsibly bringing people into the magical places I’ve found. I’ve created dozens of detailed maps to connect you with your perfect adventure. All my vow renewals and elopements are built on the foundation of using no-impact environmental practices.



Let’s Connect!

Let’s talk about your elopement. Or your cats. Or mine, if you don’t have any.
It’s ok, you won’t be the weirdest human here. I was homeschooled.
