Hey! We’re Alix + Connor. Filming and crafting unique elopement videos for adventurous couples is our jam. We’re a married videography duo traveling the country and the world in our campervan to Document Your Wild Story along the way!

Our elopement videography style is Authentic, Story-driven, Fun, and Emotional. We specialize in creating raw, documentary-style films. This means that we prioritize story and audio above all else and try to do as little posing or staged shots as possible. Your love story is unique and doesn’t need to be enhanced or changed, so we primarily rely on capturing the candid moments throughout the day. We also strongly believe that your unique elopement story cannot fully be captured on video in just a couple hours. We specialize in filming all-day elopements, and even multi-day elopements, to fully incorporate everything that you’ve chosen to include into your adventurous love story together.

Additionally, we offer elopement planning assistance such as permit research, site recommendations and scouting, timeline creation, amazing local vendor recommendations, and whatever else you might need to ensure your elopement is truly epic.

Since we live, work, and travel in our van, this allows us to scout many potential elopement locations, and also saves you tons of money on travel fees or multi-day bookings. As Colorado natives, we’ve explored every mountain range and valley in the state. In the past few years, we’ve adventured through the entire Rocky Mountain and Desert Southwest regions, from Arizona to Montana and everywhere in between. We bring our insider knowledge of these areas plus our adventure planning expertise to every elopement that we film.

We’d love to learn more about your adventurous elopement plans!

Adventurous Hiking Elopement in Colorado's San Juan Mountains

Hiring Acts of Adventure was quite literally the best thing I did while planning my wedding/elopement. They were amazing and helpful in the planning process. My husband and I were so impressed with their responsiveness and flexibility. We weren't sure where we wanted our ceremony location and location for a small intimate dinner with our family afterwards and they helped us find the BEST spots for both. We also hired photographers based on a few of their recommendations and we could not have had a better team of people documenting our day.

Connor and Alix could not have been more amazing. They offered restaurant and activity suggestions because they were familiar with the area and were up for everything. We were so comfortable with them and our video was so authentic to us and our relationship. YOU WILL NOT REGRET HIRING THEM! We are so happy to have hired them and made two new friends.

Alix and Connor were a true blessing, especially when we found out we had to postpone our wedding due to COVID. When we told them we felt we needed to postpone our wedding and wanted to do an elopement instead they didn’t seem fazed, while we were totally overwhelmed. We likely wouldn’t have been able to have such a special elopement day without them. From first meeting them on Zoom to months after our elopement, they have been quick to respond and check in, and have such a calming quality to them which was so important. When we finally met them in person it was like hanging out with old friends, they are so easy to be around. They were a huge part of our planning process and when we threw out multiple ideas that didn’t seem to make any sense, they were able to piece them together into a beautiful schedule that fit us perfectly. We also had a few places for the elopement location in mind, and they graciously scouted all of them and informed us on all restrictions, licensing, and drone regulations that were involved in each location. We eventually chose an alpine lake above 10,000 feet in Southern CO and they checked it out and let us know the conditions of the area (such as snow, an impassable road, and an icy lake). A big part of our elopement was wanting to do it at sunrise. If you have never been to CO, the sun rises EARLY and the mountain mornings are COLD. I mean, really cold. They were willing to meet us at the trailhead at 4AM, and then hike up to the lake in the cold darkness. They were an absolute joy to be around the whole day and kept us laughing and on schedule. During all of this they were also very conscientious about COVID which we greatly appreciated as we had been very careful as well. Since we were planning to have a wedding with our family and friends but had to postpone, we were still able to share our special day with everyone through our video. Connor and Alix were able to capture the perfect moments that made our loved ones still feel included in our special day even though no one else was in attendance. Everyone loved our video and we got so many compliments from our people as well as strangers that had also seen our video. The video we received came sooner than anticipated, and we literally cry every time we watch it (seriously, it’s so good). The emotions and special moments they captured are so important to us, and we know this video will beat the test of time, and be something we will cherish forever. From the first moment we met them, we made it clear that we wanted our dog, Lily to be the star of the show. Not only did they shower Lily with love, but they also made a short montage of just Lily. They heard our ideas and went above and beyond (yet again!!) and the video of Lily is something we will hold close, especially as she is getting older. If you want videographers that truly care about you as people, who take the time to get to know you, who are educated filmmakers, will go above and beyond for you on your special day, and who are just a ton of fun to be around, you need to book Acts of Adventure for your elopement or wedding! And we will always recommend them to anyone and everyone we know. Hiring them will be the best and easiest choice you make during wedding planning, and you will not regret it one bit!

Alix and Connor were easily some of the best people we could have picked for our elopement to Colorado. We didn’t know exactly what we wanted for our elopement, but they assisted us every step of the way. They helped us find an amazing location, both in Manitou Springs and in Garden of the Gods. They also assisted us in making sure we were allowed to have cameras everywhere that we went ahead of time, and reached out to vendors to ensure a very smooth day. They were also extremely easy to work with the day of, and were very supportive and helpful whenever they needed to be. Not to mention the fact that they’re really cool people and fun to hang out with haha. The video they put together for us was so amazing! I don’t think we could have found anyone who could have made such a perfect elopement video for us. They got all of the big moments on video, as well as all of the fun ones. It captured our personalities so well, as well as the events of the entire day. We basically gave them full creative liberties and they blew us away! I would HIGHLY recommend that if you’re looking to elope in Colorado and need a videographer to reach out to them. I can honestly say that without them, we would have been lost in planning everything and everything would have been a lot more stressful.

Alix + Connor of Acts of Adventure were amazing to work with throughout our wedding planning and on our big day. Connor was incredibly responsive as we worked through the different components of our video package, and he was incredibly helpful as we sorted out final locations for our first look and ceremony. He and Alix were both very understanding as our wedding date and plan changed due to Covid, too. When our wedding finally came Alix + Connor were so thoughtful and kind in their interactions with my husband and I and our guests. Our families loved interacting with them as a result, and it shows through the video because everyone looks comfortable and relaxed. We are over the moon with how the video turned out! It captures far more than just our day - it really shows a peak into our little love story, and we are so grateful to have it to look back on for many years to come. Thank you, Alix + Connor! You are both so talented and we are very grateful for your work!

We could go on and on about how incredibly talented of videographers Connor and Alix are... We had a very short timeline due to canceling our wedding in Iowa and deciding to elope in Glacier National Park. Throughout this entire process, Connor and Alix helped to setup our timeline, provided location advice, contacted their connections in the area for vendor recommendations, and pointed out permit requirements, which made this process far less stressful. They worked seamlessly with our photographer throughout the planning process and during the wedding day... It was things like them going out of their way to scout our location when they weren’t obligated to, or them reaching out with a phone call a few days prior to make sure we felt comfortable about our timeline, or them getting to know us and our music preferences to best represent us, or them thinking to leave us alone for a few minutes after our ceremony to have a special moment, just the two of us, without cameras (this was something we hadn’t even thought about or planned for, but it was so meaningful and truly showed that, for them, it wasn’t just about getting great video the entire day, it was about us)...

We can't say enough good things about Alix and Connor. I knew I found my videographer when I watched a wedding video they captured, and I cried my eyes out over complete strangers. We love that they took the time to get to know us as a couple, what was important to us about our wedding, and what we wanted in our video. They are such down to earth people, and we felt so comfortable. Our video was beyond anything we could have dreamed, and it felt so authentically us. They even delivered the video earlier than expected. We can't thank Alix and Connor enough for the amazing job they did capturing our day. They are so talented! Their work is worth beyond more than the investment. I also HIGHLY recommend adding the teaser trailer video to your package. It was so fun, and we loved having something to share quickly since our family and friends weren't there to see it in person.

If I could give 10 out of 5 stars for Alix and Connor, I would without a blink. I cannot overstate how amazing they are to work with, and how exceptionally talented Alix is as a filmmaker. I did a master's in documentary film several years ago, and have always had a discerning taste for wedding videography - I was almost ready to give up on this component of the day until I found their website. I knew from the second I read their bio and watched a few of their films that they were the perfect option for us, and even then, they exceeded expectations. Alix was the most buttoned-up, prompt, and helpful vendor we hired for our wedding day. The amount of care she put into getting to know who we are as a couple shows in every single frame of the film and teaser she made for us. Together with Connor, she asked all of the right questions (down to what kind of music we like so the film could reflect this), was on time for every event, was extremely thorough in her email communication, and on top of it all, she is a mountain lover at heart who has the quiet, supportive energy you crave as a bride on your wedding day. We've watched the short and long films, and the raw footage she gifted us, so many times - yet each time, we find something new we love. I truly think these two are on the cusp of being industry-best and feel so lucky to have found them on their journey to the top!
