“I exist in two places: here and where you are.” — Margaret Atwood


Your elopement should feel like every moment of your relationship distilled. The morning coffees. The afternoon quiet, sitting next to each other on the couch. The hikes you take, sharing trail meals at stopping points, lucky to have the views all to yourselves. The i-love-yous you mumble right before sleep, the words so natural by now that it feels like your mouth was made to say them.


I’m Ayla (pronounced eye-luh), and I photograph micro-weddings and elopements across Colorado on digital, 35mm, medium format, and polaroid film.

I’m a big believer in fate (or at least serendipity), so if been dreaming of film photos and you’ve stumbled upon my listing, let’s take it as a sign that you’ve found your elopement photographer.


An important question!

– If you call yourself a planner but have a soft spot for unexpected magic, then yes.
– If you care more about who you’re with than what you’re doing, then yes.
– If you don’t mind getting your clothes a little dirty and your hair a little messy, then YES.

Eloping with Ayla was an absolute dream. From the start I had a whole vision on how I wanted to style our day, the vibe of the photos, and a specific location. She listened to every word I had to say and absolutely executed far beyond anything I could’ve ever imagined.

She kept us up to date on the whole entire process. She did all of the research on the location. We requested 2 different types of film and this woman hiked through the sand dunes with all of her gear like a champ and still KILLED IT. She made us feel so comfortable and present in the moment. I felt like I was hanging out with a friend the whole time we were with her!

Ayla sent us previews to hold us over on the excitement and then delivered the whole gallery so quickly after our day. When we first saw our gallery we cried like babies. I never thought photos could mean so much to us, but we will cherish these for the rest of our lives.


Ayla was absolutely wonderful to us. She managed to make me and my horribly awkward husband comfortable enough to take the BEST pictures. She was kind, funny, and overall the coolest person EVER. We highly recommend her for your elopement!!

P.S. We took her on a 40 minute hike in pitch black at 5 in the morning. 100/10 dedicated:)


I’m so glad I found Ayla. She was so helpful and amazing throughout the entire process. She recommended locations to get married at based on where we were planning to stay and even gave us food and drink recommendations. We made a couple of very last minute changes, and she was so accommodating and adapted to them on a whim. Our families loved her great attitude and ability to direct all of us during family photos. Her communication was very prompt, and her true-to-color editing was exactly what we were looking for!


We truly could not have asked for a more thoughtful, talented, and kind person to capture our day. From the first time we spoke, Ayla has been so helpful and knowledgeable. It felt like every concern was resolved before we could even begin to get stressed about them. We were able to focus on just enjoying the day and she really helped us embrace the excitement & beauty in a rainy wedding day. She made us feel so comfortable, both hanging with her and in front of the camera. She felt like a close friend celebrating with us more than a hired photographer. Every tiny, intimate moment was caught so beautifully, looking at them makes us feel like we are right back in that moment.
