WASHINGTON LOCAL | ADVENTURING WITH COUPLES THROUGHOUT WASHINGTON AND OREGON
WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO PUSH TRADITION ASIDE, YOU OPEN A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES.
Hey there! My name is Heather McFord, I’m the photographer and planning guide behind Cascadian Exposures. The matter of fact is: I’ve been in your shoes… exhausted and trying to fumble through which decision to make next. After many sleepless nights, wedding planning became nothing but frustrating and my partner and I began dreading our wedding day. That’s when we made our best decision yet: we cancelled our wedding to elope.
ALL THAT FREEDOM HOWEVER, CAN BECOME OVERWHELMING.
Losing the framework of a traditional wedding can make it incredibly difficult to know where to begin. There is no one way to elope. As it turns out, there is no right or wrong choices when it comes to eloping… only the choice that is right for YOU. You deserve a wedding day that is solely centered on your commitment, not one full of sacrifices.
THIS EXPERIENCE GOES FAR DEEPER THAN JUST PHOTOGRAPHY… PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
There is so much excitement waiting for you in the experience ahead. Imagine a wedding day where you can fully be present with your partner and have the space to soak in every moment. While I’m here to document your day in it’s full authenticity, I’m also here to:
- Offer tailored location and permit assistance. I really take the time to get to know your location inside and out so we can avoid surprises and personalize your day. Undecided on a location? I can help you choose that too!
- Provide professional guidance on timeline planning to ensure you have the best lighting and a truly relaxed experience.
- Connect you with vendors to help achieve your vision for your day. This can include anything from videographers, officiants, florists to even pilots and adventure guides.
- Sign your marriage license! For couples who are looking for the ultimate intimate experience and would like to self lead their vows, I am ordained and can help you two make it official.

YOUR STORY IS WORTH TELLING
Our relationship means everything to me; any stranger can take your photograph, but they cannot capture you for who you really are. They cannot capture your soul. I take a journalistic approach to documenting your wedding day because it is my mission to tell your story. Your wedding day is not a photoshoot and I most certainly will not approach this most memorable emotional day as such. You’re about to have to the most amazing time of your life. Come exactly as you are.
CASCADIAN EXPOSURES IS COMMITTED TO PRESERVING THIS BEAUTIFUL REGION FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.
Seriously serious about Leave No Trace, providing education to couples, & giving back to the community with every booked elopement.
