Hey there, I’m Ciara! I’m a U.S. based photographer that helps couples plan and document their dream elopements. The couples I work with value experiences & believe life should be lived to the fullest.

In addition to photography, I offer unlimited elopement planning help and guidance. You will receive not only beautiful photos, but a custom timeline and curated list of epic elopement locations, based on your unique vision and preferences.

A few things I can help with are: finding the perfect location and backup location, helping you choose the right attire and shoes, creating a timeline, making it legal as an ordained officiant, making sure you have an amazing time, and more!

About Me

Although I’ve always loved being behind the camera, I started looking into adventure photography after a solo trip overseas, which led me to learn about elopements. I had never really thought about my own wedding plans up to that point, but seriously resonated with the idea of these fun and adventurous intimate weddings.

Outside of photography, I love hiking, travel, running, snow skiing, and live music. You could say I have a bit of a free spirit, always preferring to explore new places and collect experiences rather than staying in one place.

I aspire to work with people who have similar values to mine– experiences, the environment, and relationships are most important in my life.

I’ve always felt most connected in the outdoors, and have found peace and tranquility by being nature. To help facilitate and plan such intentional and meaningful wedding ceremonies in some of the most beautiful places on this planet is an honor!

Oh my gosh! These are amazing. I knew you would kill it, but it makes me happy to see us not really care about having a camera pointed at us. You made us so at ease.

Ciara was a dream to work with! Due to COVID19 we moved through many iterations of our perfect day, Ciara was flexible and with us the whole way. She gave so many fantastic location recommendations, most of which I had no idea even existed! Ciara definitely went above and beyond for us in ways that we didn't anticipate. On our wedding day she was professional and accommodating, making sure everything ran smoothly and every shot was taken. During our couple photo session we were able to slow down, relax and focus on each other. Before our night was over, Ciara was already sending us sneak peaks of edited photos! To be honest, we would have been satisfied with just those few photos - they were so perfect! We recommend Ciara to anyone - she is chill, confident and so so talented!!

We worked with Ciara in Brooklyn and it was a wonderful experience! She was kind, professional, prepared and put us at ease about the entire process. A few days after our shoot, Ciara sent 5 edited sneak peak photos and we knew she was the right choice as our photographer. I would no-doubt recommend Ciara to anyone looking for professional photos. She was amazing!

Mallory & Graeme

I LOVE these pictures!! Ciara was willing to take on the challenge of photographing my two wild dogs and husband, which is quite the feat. She was calm and patient when things got crazy and she put us at ease letting us know she got some great shots. When we saw the photos my husband and I were elated! We could not have asked for a better experience.

Sarah & Peter

Our photos turned out amazing! Nick and I are obsessed. We are so happy we got the opportunity to work with Ciara!! Ciara made us feel comfortable and was able to truly capture amazing photos. We are thrilled with the end result and hope we get the chance to shoot with Ciara again in the future!

Why Elopements?

As someone who's photographed traditional weddings as well as intimate ceremonies, over time I have learned that there is something magical about elopements. Stepping away from the distractions of everyday life, and committing your life to your partner in such an intentional way can be a profound and meaningful experience.

The stress of planning and pressure to please others becomes nonexistent. You have time to breathe, to take in amazing scenery, and to honor the traditions that are meaningful to you. Suddenly it doesn't matter if there is a spontaneous last-minute change, if your wedding clothes get dirty, or if you decide to spend a few extra moments taking in the view.
