meaningful, emotional photos that move you

raw, organic wedding experiences that awaken your soul

 

We do things a little bit differently around here…

You’ve seen all the fancy, glamorous weddings all over Pinterest and you think to yourself, “these are beautiful, but just not me at all.”

You want something that matches your personality, both as a couple and as individuals, not just another cookie-cutter wedding with a $50,000 budget and the same ole’ stiff poses.

You want a wedding day that actually focuses on you…

…fueled by quality time and intention, with a backdrop of adventure and pure joy!

That’s where I come in. We dig deep. We work together to make sure that your marriage and relationship shine through the images by crafting a fun, soulful experience and documenting the moments as they unfold naturally, without all the stiff, awkward posing. This is real, organic, and truly you!

An adventure elopement isn’t posing for photos from sun-up to sun-down. This is the two of you genuinely doing fun things together, in your natural element. I am the fly on the wall for most of it, preferring a photojournalistic take. A lot less posed and a whole lot more candid. I do give gentle prompts and direction when called for, to guide you as you interact with each other naturally.

So now… what does an adventure elopement in Texas even look like?

Well, what do you like to do together? Are you avid hikers or paddlers? Do you prefer cozy, relaxed evenings over a fire, cold beers, and tacos? Or maybe there’s a bucket list item you’ve both been dying to do, but everyday life and work responsibilities just get in the way. There are all sorts of ways to make your day an experience you will never forget! Do you want to experience a favorite spot nostalgic for the two of you or do want to see somewhere new you’ve never been together?

  • Hot-air balloon rides over North Texas
  • Cozy cabin retreats in Houston’s National Forest
  • Horse-back riding in Hill Country
  • Classic arcades with home-brewed cider in The Heights
  • Kayaking trips in the marshes of East Texas
  • Camel treks in Big Bend

You get the idea…

Your options are only limited by your imagination. Luckily, you have me as your Texas location guide! I’ve been traversing around Texas’ hidden gems since 2013 and know all the best trails, places to stay, unique things to do, and of course, where to eat!

I’m your travel guide, photographer, and your officiant! Yepp. That’s right. I’m legally ordained and can sign off on your marriage license for those looking for a truly “just us” vow experience.

It’s time to breathe a sigh of relief. Your intimate wedding day is possible. Elope with Rachel is here to relieve the burden of your day, plan a life-giving elopement and capture the true, at-ease you.

We absolutely ADORE Rach! She is such a kind and genuine soul, SO patient, and so knowledgeable. We had a blast on our wedding day and everything went so smoothly and it's all thanks to her! Rach is extremely dedicated and is so good and making everyone feel comfortable (and directing my un-poseable husband). She got so many unique shots that I would have never thought of and they all turned out so well!! She's such a gem! Our photos turned out absolutely stunning. They're plastered on canvas all over our house!

Honestly, I was so anxious about forgetting something on the day of, but you planned for every detail and I got to relax and be present in the moment with my husband. Thank you.

Veronica

Girl- that was such an enlightening experience. Eloping does something to your souls that traditional weddings fail to do.

Alex

I've always hated having my photo taken, but I actually had so much fun taking photos on our elopement day.

Michael

I was completely blown out of the water by my wedding photos! I can't stop looking at them.
