So you wanna elope! I already love that about you. Something tells me we’re gonna get along juuust fine.

My name is Ashley and I’m an intimate wedding/elopement photographer based in Salt Lake City, Utah. I never met a dog I didn’t like and I could live in the mountains…as long as the mountains have wifi so I can watch Schitt’s Creek on repeat. I have a love for people who think outside the box and are not afraid to be themselves, and I love being able to capture that on camera.

I believe eloping is important. (So much so that I did it myself!) Elopements give you the incredible opportunity to live fully in the moment. To celebrate with your human in the most intentional and meaningful ways. Whether you’re wanting to sip champagne on a catamaran on the Amalfi coast, or say your vows in an A-frame cabin overlooking the red rocks of Southern Utah, your dream day is completely up to you. And I’ll be there to capture you as you are.

As your photographer, my job description goes WAY beyond just taking epic photos of your day. All my elopement and intimate wedding packages include:

  • Exclusive 100+ page elopement resource guide with tips for picking a ceremony location, how to tell your family you’re eloping, what to pack, and tons more!
  • Custom timeline crafting specific to you and your day
  • Personalized vendor recommendations
  • Optional elopement stylist add-ons available
  • Zero travel fees (the only thing that might be extra is something suuper extra, like a helicopter or hot air balloon ride)
  • Your very own Elopement Expert (spoiler alert: that’s me!) to guide you through the whole damn thing

I would love to chat with you about all your elopement dreams and see how we can make them come to life together! Feel free to check out my website for pricing, inspo, and more elopement planning tips.

Here’s a couple guides for you to get started!

Can’t wait to meet you!

"Ashley has a true gift for helping create and capture authentic and beautiful moments. We cannot recommend her enough!!
We searched and searched to find a photographer that had a great personality and artistic style/portfolio. Since we decided to elope, we knew our photographer would be critical to the overall experience and Ashley did not disappoint! She is incredibly kind, personable, genuine, and overall a joy to be around. Not only that, she made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and captured our special day so perfectly."

"I would recommend Ashley over and over again. Everything about our experience with her was great. We had to cancel our original wedding plans due to covid and go to plan B, which was an elopement in Zion. I found Ashley and booked her on the same day. She responded to my inquiry very quickly which was not the case with a lot of other photographers. She helped me plan out our elopement in terms of where in Zion to have the ceremony, time of day, etc. On the day, she was so lovely. On time, fun to hang out with, and non-intrusive. I barely noticed her taking pictures during the ceremony. She was a great director and knew exactly how to get the perfect shots. We just got the photos back and they are really incredible in every aspect. I will cherish these pictures for the rest of my life. Hire Ashley! You won't be disappointed."

"When we asked Ashley to take pictures of our Patagonian elopement, we knew we would be getting great pictures, but we had no idea we would also be gaining a great friend. Ashley worked with us before starting the journey down to Chile to get a sense of who we are as a couple and what we wanted out of our wedding pictures. Because none of us had been to Torres del Paine, we didn’t know where we wanted to have our ceremony. Ashley remained flexible and understanding, and she never hesitated to wake up well before the sun rose to hike out to the location with us. Our pictures were absolutely perfect! Ashley directed us so that none of the pictures were over-posed. They totally represented who we are as a couple. If I could do it all over again, I’d hire Ashley, no question. I’d also highly highly recommend her to anyone else!"
