Hi, I’m Brittany!


I am a dog and cat mom, a travel lover, and I split most of my time between my home state of Michigan and my favorite place in the world – Hawaii. I feel most at home when I’m outside connecting with nature – being barefoot on the beach is my happy place.

I’ve been a photographer for over 10 years, and I feel like the luckiest person in the world to be able to combine my love for photography, nature, and capturing love through elopement and couples photography.


I truly believe that eloping is the best way to get married. It is a chance for you and your partner to celebrate your life together in a genuine way, without feeling pressured or overwhelmed by a traditional wedding.

At the end of the day, most photographers can deliver great photos. But I want so much more than that for you. The experience of your elopement day is my #1 priority, and I’ll do everything I can to make sure you have the best day. Forget about the expectations of what your day “should” be – we’ll work together to create a beautiful day that is true to who you are.

Planning an elopement or intimate wedding can feel intimidating, but don’t worry, that’s what I’m here for! I’m much more than a photographer; I also help all my couples with planning, location scouting, vendor and timeline recommendations, and more!


I’m here to make sure you have the best day of your life!

There really just isn't enough good stuff I can say about Brittany and Jake... If I could give 6 stars, I would!

My wife and I decided a while back, after seeing the estimate for a traditional wedding in a local venue, that it wasn't worth the money or the hype. We wanted something more personal and intimate since that special moment is to be reserved for us.

Brittany, along with her husband Jake, made sure to capture each and every moment and the emotion of every moment just as we would have hoped! My wife is shy and hates being the center of attention, so naturally getting married, even in front of close friends and family, was unsettling and she really doesn't like having her picture taken...

None of this proved to be a challenge for Brittany as her and Jake seemed to just let things flow naturally, give guidance when it was needed or when they saw a shot through their eyes, and magically disappear so you never even know they were there capturing those little moments when you think no one is watching. You know the ones... the ones so packed with emotion that you can really feel every ounce of love, caring, and passion you share with each other...all able to be felt through the photos Brittany and Jake were able to capture.

If there was anything at all we did right during this special occasion, it was having Brittany and Jake be there to capture these moments!

Brittany exceeded our expectations!

We are not normally comfortable getting our pictures taken, so we were hesitant about the process. We met with several elopement photographers before deciding to go with Brittany. The first call with her made us feel confident because she was easy to talk to and explained everything clearly for us. Once we moved forward, she was always available, kept us on track for planning, gave us ideas and resources (since we had never been to the locations before), and helped add to our excitement for the event (since it was going to just be the two of us eloping).

As an LGBTQ couple, we wanted to be confident that we would feel completely comfortable with our photographer during our wedding ceremony and pictures. From the get-go, Brittany made it clear that she was excited to work with us like any other couple. This is incredibly important. On the day of the event, she and Jake continued to make us comfortable, even though we had just met for the first time in-person.

Brittany is much more than a photographer. She helped us plan and gave us ideas for locations and activities. She was also very easy going and flexible.

On top of all that, the photos are phenomenal. She listened to our ideas for what kind of framing and composition we wanted in the photos, emphasizing the location in addition to us. The pictures captured exactly what we were looking for and we are very, very happy.

This review has taken me so long to write, because it was so hard to find the words to explain how genuine, amazing, thoughtful, and kind both Brittany and Jake were.

My husband and I experienced the stress, troubles and family micromanaging that comes along with all big weddings and we decided to cancel our big wedding to elope in Utah! From the very first email, we knew these were the people that had to be with us on this day. The day itself brought unpredictable weather (snow storm), but created a fairytale type of day. Even with the unexpected weather, they were calm, positive, and were ready to conquer this day along with us.

I never thought eloping was something I would have chosen for my wedding, but I now believe I would have never wanted it any other way. We received sneak peaks of our photos the day after, and our full album and video came just a couple weeks after. When I say SPEECHLESS I mean speechless. I felt like I could never come up with the words to express our gratitude for all the hard work they put into our photos and video. Our family and friends rave over all of it always … no one believed that someone would climb mountains with us and be able to capture every single perfect moment between my husband and I.

Thank you so much again Brittany and Jake, we will always recommend you to anyone and everyone.

Every part of the process of working with Brittany was easy and delightful! When we first met her on our virtual appointment, her energy and excitement about OUR wedding day was infectious - you could tell she was going to be engaged in the process and it was very easy to talk with her. Brittany shared many helpful guides and had questionnaires to make the entire process of dreaming and planning for our adventure elopement a breeze. She pays attention to little things … which made the process so smooth.

On our wedding day, Brittany anticipated everything and wore many hats … In addition to that, she hiked all around with us while donning heavy photography equipment with a smile. It was very comfortable to have Brittany capture our day, exactly how it happened. The majority of our photos were not posed, and she was able to capture all of the many real emotions of our day. All of our photos look like the real us, but through a photographer's lens and with gorgeous scenery in the background.

We are so pleased with the memories and moments that Brittany captured. If you are looking for a fun third wheel for your special occasion, we'd highly recommend Brittany!

I cannot write enough great things about our experience with Brittany!

She was extremely quick to respond when we first reached out and had a ton of questions and ideas about our elopement. Her guidance helped us plan our day in the way we wanted and her talent behind the camera is amazing.

All of our photos came out so beautifully and she captured all of our best moments. Brittany was excellent at capturing our day without having us feel posed all day for pictures. She was extremely professional and was an absolute pleasure to have involved in our special day. You will not regret working with her!

What an incredible experience from start to finish!

April and I knew that we did not want a “traditional” wedding and had a vague idea of something that felt more us but it still felt a bit overwhelming. Enter Brittany!

From that small idea, Brittany helped us bring it to life in such a beautiful way. Her process in planning is very thoughtful with everything geared toward making things easy and relaxed for her clients. She had so many great options for our day and took the time to get to know us, honing in on what could make sense for April and me. Her responsiveness made us feel so well taken care of and let us know how much of a priority our day was to her.

The plan we landed on was perfect. It was such a lovely experience for April and me (and our dog Hazel) and memories we'll have forever.

And after all that... our pictures are absolutely amazing! We got sneak peeks VERY quickly (the next day!!!) and everyone we've shown them to thinks they were ripped from a magazine!

We HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Brittany and Jake to anyone looking for a totally unique experience, the highest level of care for your day, and magazine quality pictures capturing it all!

Brittany and Jake are absolutely amazing!! They made us feel so comfortable and natural throughout our entire day. It didn’t feel like we were stilling there taking photos all day, instead we just enjoyed our day and Brittany and Jake were able to capture amazing moments. This was HUGE! I have been in so many wedding where it feels like half your day is spent on taking photos and that isn’t what your wedding is supposed to be about.

Thank you soooo much for helping us plan and create our perfect intimate wedding!
