“It was such an honor to capture Ashley and Zak in their element. During their elopement, they were doing what they love while sharing their love. We got to hike in the beautiful White Mountains, then come back, relax, and have a few, maybe more than a few, celebratory drinks at their campsite. Overall, it was an amazing day!” [Becca]

“Rachel and Joe reflected a love with the depth and truth that reflects something bigger. I’m so lucky to have photographed them running around in the meadows and singing our favorite songs during the ceremony. I’ll be looking back at these moments for years to come.” [Natalie]

“As high-school sweethearts, Erin and Zoltan knew they wanted to get married. They decided to make it official alongside their immediate family and pups! They got married among the beautiful redwood trees outside of Santa Cruz, CA.” [Sarah]

“Marriage is perhaps the greatest and most challenging adventure of all. However, marriage is also about having someone to laugh with, to snuggle with, and to hold on a cold night. It’s having someone you know feels the same way about you as you feel about them.” [JR Holaday-Herrington, officiant]

“After adventuring and road-tripping in the Isle of Skye for a couple of days, they decided Glencoe will be the best spot to elope. So there, in the valley carved by long-gone glaciers, they spoke their vows. They were surrounded by the most wonderful landscape, shivering with excitement and cold, and drinking whiskey out of the bottle to celebrate and warm up.” [Anna]

“The Wilds wanted their adventure elopement to be just the two of them in nature. They had decided they would both change their last name to Wild, instead of Sierra taking on Alex’s name. If you meet them, you will understand why they chose that name, and how fitting it is for them.” [Brian and Becky]
