“We were very selective when choosing a photographer but Brianna’s work caught our eye. What really set Brianna apart, however, was how much she cared about us and our vision.”

You? You’re the kind of person that gets a lil’ teary eyed looking at an epic view.

Landscapes help you see how big the world is and make you grateful for your place in it. For the opportunity to live and grow and love on this earth.

How do I know that? Because I feel that way, too.

My favorite thing (besides my husband and lab, Cooper), is the feeling of sharing a magical place with someone I know will find it special.

That moment when you turn to the person you’re with and ask, “Are you seeing this?” I live for it. Places with trees and mountains and soft breezes that make you say, “I can’t believe this place exists,” I spend pretty much all of my free time searching for and exploring them.

These places have always felt like home to me. And if you’re the kind of person who also feels more at home surrounded by trees than by people? Then we’ll get along really well. The Pacific Northwest is full of secret spots that are too special to share with just anyone. But it would make me happy to share them with you on your wedding day.

If the mountains/beaches/Redwood forests are calling your name, go ahead…

Say yes to the adventure.

(I promise you won’t regret it.)

P.S. I’m Brianna, and I plan, craft, and capture elopements around the Pacific Northwest. My mission is to create custom, one-of-a-kind elopement experiences in the Pacific Northwest that allow couples to fully immerse themselves in the highest levels of excitement and wonder on a day designed exclusively for them.

We cannot rave enough about Brianna (my mother is literally ready to book her for her own vow renewal). Brianna’s attention to detail and ability to make every part of the process so personalized and special is something we will forever be grateful for. From our first discussion my now husband was immediately sold on her and canceled any plans for meetings with other photographers.

Brianna curated gorgeous lists of locations within our chosen venue of Olympic National Park. Each location provided had trail maps, 360 views, and or videos of what the site would look like. Brianna really knows hidden gems throughout the parks which was incredible as we had never been to the west coast. She even gave us vendor recommendations, places to eat, where to shop, even the closest medical facility.

She helped us brainstorm a plan B when the visitor center at Olympic burned down and then a plan C when there was a cougar attack (we all laughed at that point)! Needless to say- our wedding was perfect in every way possible and we couldn’t imagine getting married in any other way. She made us laugh and comfortable through the entirety of the journey. Brianna has a heart of gold and is knowledgeable and efficient. We never felt rushed or staged- it was all very natural and we truly felt we can look back and say we enjoyed every aspect of our special day.

There were so many small moments she captured for me that mean the world. Our only regret of the day was not getting a photograph with Brianna as well. My husband, myself, and both our families adore and love Brianna beyond words. It was an amazing experience working together.

When we first started planning our wedding, it was a mess to be frank. I pride myself on being organized and a planner, but even this was out of my element. We didn't know where to start because we'd never done this before. We knew we wanted to be married in the mountains but didn't know what that looked like. We stumbled across Brianna Parks' page through some googling and everything that she had on her website from the free guides spoke to us in how we wanted to be married.

It was so easy and great working with Brianna, she sent us so many useful resources and all the vendors we ended up using were from the curated list she sent us. Through her questionnaires, she was able to send personalized locations that really captured what we were wanting in our wedding day.

The day of our elopement was stress free and perfect. It seems cliche but it was the best day of our lives. I don't think we could've had what we had without Brianna's meticulous planning. It's crazy that you work with someone so much over the past few months and you meet them for the first time that day. Brianna made it so easy for us that we didn't worry about a thing. She was great in guiding us for photos as well as just fun to talk with as we hiked around.

When we got our sneak peek of our photos, our jaws dropped, they were so beautiful and really captured the love and happiness from that day. All of our friends and family rave about how amazing our photos are. I know we'll be looking back on these photos for years to come.

For anyone who's looking for a detailed planner who is going to provide a great level of service and make you feel at ease throughout your day, Brianna is your person! I think it was the best that we have the combination of photographer and planner in one because Brianna is amazing!

10 out of 5 stars.

When you choose to elope, you make that decision because you want intimacy and an innate focus on your relationship. It's hard to sum up the uniqueness of love in a photo (or 500) but Brianna managed to do that. We initially chose Brianna because we loved her style and were drawn to just basic similarities of her as a person. We didn't know that we would feel like we were spending the most important day of our relationship with a stranger who felt like a best friend.

Brianna is extremely talented, she is in love with her craft and it shows. There are other reviews about feeling comfortable and confident and I +1 all of those, but I want to shout out Brianna's thoroughness to capture anything and everything and even moments we don't remember or didnt see.

When you elope and build a team of people to help you bring it to life, find someone like Brianna! Extremely talented, so insanely likeable and just genuinely someone you wanted to have around - and she takes badass pictures.

I cannot say enough amazing things about Brianna Parks or recommend her highly enough!! If you’re considering hiring her to photograph and/or plan your elopement, DO IT!! Brianna beautifully documented every moment of my husband, Riley, and I’s elopement in Catalina Island, California. Her photos are stunning and really captured who we are as people and as a couple. We’re so thankful to have these gorgeous memories we’ll cherish forever!! Brianna was also our elopement planner, executing our day seamlessly. Riley and I always wanted an adventure elopement, but had no idea how to make it happen on Catalina Island since we live in Oklahoma. After connecting with Brianna through a lucky Google search, everything fell into place perfectly. She truly made our elopement dreams come true!! Brianna booked our travel, lodging, hair and makeup artist, florist, officiant, scouted locations for our ceremony, recommended an amazing videography team, and even booked the most incredible activity - a private helicopter charter with a secluded picnic on the other side of the island!! Our elopement day was so much more than we ever expected thanks to Brianna - all fun, no stress, and truly personalized. She was also a patient sounding board, attentive to detail, frequent communicator, and really invested in making sure we had the perfect day. Brianna is so kind and easy to get along with; we instantly clicked in person and really enjoyed spending the day with her!! All of our vendors also noted how wonderful she was to work with and very communicative. After experiencing the MOST EPIC elopement ever, Brianna returned our full gallery within a week and the images are breathtaking!! I could truly go on and on with this recommendation…our experience was worthy of more than five stars. Our dream day would have never happened without her talent and hard work!! We also gained a beloved new friend from our experience ❤️ Courtney and Riley Dennis will always be so grateful for you, Brianna!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!

When you are planning on getting married, finding and choosing a photographer is one of the most anxiety-inducing aspects. Obviously, you want good pictures, but you also want to find someone that gets you. You want someone that is communicative, and willing to go the extra mile to make sure you get the perfect photos.

Brianna met all of our needs for our elopement-style wedding. From the very first message, she seemed just as excited as we were about getting married. Though we were very overwhelmed with most of the planning, she quickly assuaged our fears by working with us every step of the way. She really did her homework and made sure she fully understood our desires and our restrictions. We wanted to get married near Mt. Rainier, but we also had children and our parents trekking around with us. We wanted to get to tons of different spots for photos, but we had only so much time and reservations later that night. With her help in planning, not only did we fit in all the shots we wanted to get, no one even complained about being tired later!

The photos she delivered ...WOW! They were everything we wanted and more! Please take a look at the attached. They speak for themselves.

It was truly a joy working with her, and I feel so lucky that we chose her to photograph these important moments for us. Please, look no further if you are looking for an elopement photographer. You've already landed in the right spot, just go ahead and reach out to her!

I have to share the 5 star experience my family and I had with Brianna. My now husband and I have always wanted to go to Northern California to experience the Redwoods together. We live in Baltimore, MD. Once we got engaged we entertained the idea of even getting married in the Redwoods. We went back and forth between starting to plan a traditional wedding in our home town with our friends and family or eloping in beautiful Northern California. Once it came time to make a final decision I was so happy to have found Brianna's pages. Brianna has heightened our marriage experience beyond anything we have ever dreamed of. It was a big decision to plan and execute a trip with my family across the country for an epic wedding adventure. Did I mention we brought along out 2 year old? However, since we had our initial consult with Brianna, worked with her through the planning process, and then of course on our wedding day and now 3 weeks post wedding day I can honestly say I was not stressed at all and have always been in good hands with Brianna. Her professionalism, organization, and attention to detail is everything a bride and couple dreams of when making such a huge life commitment. Brianna made working together even though we were literally across the country from each other very easy and comforting. She was extremely communicative, informative, and responsive to any of our questions and concerns. She even made us aware of information that we would have never even thought about. And dont even get me started her on her photography. My friends and family have all been blown away from the beautiful memories she captured on our wedding day. Even though all of our friends and family were not there we are able to tell the story of our day in the images she captured. My husband and I would work with Brianna and get eloped over and over again based on our experience. We are so grateful for Brianna and would recommend her to anyone-even if you are across the world :)

Brianna truly helped make our dream elopement a reality! We can not recommend her enough. Because we eloped we wanted to make sure we had amazing photos to show our family and friends. Brianna did just that!

First off working with Brianna-- She is beyond professional and thorough. Throughout the entire process she had such clear communication, providing us with various guides (vendor options), elopement guides, recommendations (all based off of what we were interested in), calls to get to know us and her better. Never meeting someone in person before your wedding day can be a little nerve-racking however she was everything we could have hoped for and more!

We chose to elope in the North Cascades, WA. Not only did Brianna help recommend some airbnbs but she also recommended additional sites for photos. We ended up at Artist Point which was of course absolutely stunning, but she also recommended Bagley Lakes. There was no one there besides us- making it truly a magical place to get married.

Now for the pictures! Oh my goodness- we couldn't have imagined anything more amazing than the work she did. She captured everything from that day! Brianna is so kind, funny and sweet- and made it so easy to be photographed.

We are truly grateful to have been able to work with her. And can not thank her enough for helping make our day so amazing, and provide us with such beautiful photos to help our memory of that day last forever!
