National Park Adventure Elopement Photographer

Nomadically serving National Park elopements in Colorado, Hawaii, California, Utah, Arizona, and destinations abroad.

Have you ever been to a friend’s wedding and thought,
“Oh, I’d do this sooooo differently..”
Now it’s your turn. So do it your way.

I make sure there are a lot of those. By empowering you to choose experiences, activities, plans and details that make you EXCITED. I take away the stress of planning, and the cookie cutters too.

I’m #1 in the world for authentic elopement storytelling from Wedding Photojournalists Association and I’ve photographed over 200 amazing, unique, wild marriages.

My style and approach

I only photograph & plan elopements with 15 or fewer guests. While I’m overly prepared for everything, I’d rather go with the flow than plan things down to the minute. I’m ready to embrace your inner weirdness and unique ideas. Nobody is normal and the world is better for it.

My photography style is, above all else, colorful. Because my photos show lifelike colors, you will have your landscape preserved timelessly. Your photo gallery will transport you back in time to what your incredible day really looked like. So you can visit and re-live it anytime. Overly brown and desaturated photos are trendy now, but won’t be popular forever.
