I’m Norm Roberts the Fifth, an outdoor enthusiast and elopement photographer based in California.

I specialize in elopements out west but serve the entire US and beyond. Over the last fourteen years I’ve had the pleasure of photographing just about everything; brides and grooms, models, landscapes, hotels, products, you name it. But I found there’s just something magical about photographing people. When I discovered I could combine my passion and skill for portraiture with my love of exploring the great outdoors, I was instantly converted to a lifelong pursuit of elopement photography in the great outdoors. A few scrapped knees, worn out hiking boots, and far too many bug bites to count later, I’ve loved every minute of it.

I am an elopement photographer for those with a touch of wanderlust,

artistic souls, and those who would genuinely like to create something beautiful with a photographer as excited for your wedding as you are. Let’s tell your love story! So whether you’re planning a simple escape to your favorite national park or a multi day excursion to the peaks above, follow me off the beaten path and let’s create something truly wonderful. We’ll have a blast doing it too!

For me, elopement photography isn’t a means to a paycheck,

but a method of artistic expression. I’m not interested in the traditional posed images. I want real emotions, real moments, images that capture the real you. Be it a micro wedding or an intimate elopement, my goal as a photographer is to create meaningful photos that produce a sense of wonder in my client all while having a great time. A photo shoot should be fun! My favorite clients are the ones willing to go off the beaten path with me. There’s a big world out there, why not explore it?

Love love LOVE our photos!!!! I can't recommend Norm enough! He made the whole experience so fun and memorable and captured our precious moments perfectly. He knew exactly where the perfect spots were and when we got the photos I was just ELATED!!! Thank you, Norm!

Norm has a great eye for photography and his work speaks for itself. With adventure elopement photography, you are normally hiking in formal wear and battling the elements which could be stressful but Norm made us feel very comfortable. He actively worked to get the best shot possible and his photography is worth every penny. Norm is engaging and also very flexible. Norm works as best as he can with your vision or ideas. He was responsive to our phone calls and emails before the wedding and made us feel assured that we were taken care of. We chose the 6 hour package which allowed us to take photos at sunrise and sunset. We are delighted with our photos that include our wedding ceremony and a change into our traditional wear. Whether you are marrying in Yosemite like we did or at another amazing nature setting, do not hesitate to book Fifth Photography!

Working with Norm as our wedding photographer was truly an INCREDIBLE experience. He was super responsive and kind with my seemingly never ending questions. Our wedding day was easy and stress-free in a large part to Norm's friendly personality. As people who don't get usually get professional photos, he made us feel so comfortable and at ease. We got married in Yosemite and he knew all the amazing locations in the park to take us to. I am completely blown away by our photos--they are absolutely stunning and truly captured so many special moments from our day. He delivered the photos in such a special and creative way---We will treasure these photos for the rest of our life. Thank you, Norm!

Norm was a champ. He met us up in a remote location for our engagement pictures and ceremony. He is professional, flexible, and an excellent photographer. Would highly recommend him for an elopement or small wedding. He knows all the best places and has a lot of logistics advice for national parks

I can't say enough about how much I loved working with Norm. He was personable, funny, nerdy, and made us feel completely comfortable when both of us usually don't know what to do in front of a camera.
Not to mention he knew the park so well it was like having a personal tour guide along with a photographer. Highly recommend!!

Working with Norm was unforgettable! He was so responsive, especially during COVID-19. He was very willing to help us choose a new location and travel to us in Minnesota. The pictures turned out gorgeous and we had such a good time! Norm made us feel comfortable (which is hard because both my husband and I are camera shy) and kept us upbeat throughout a long day of hiking!

Yosemite elopement shooting with Norm was an unforgettable experience!!
I had many requests of the spot for shooting in the park but he arranged perfect schedule and we were totally satisfied with that. Also to complete my request, he worked with us from 4am to around 7pm.
It was amazing that he took us to Taft point where it was never possible to reach there without him but the best place to take pictures for elopement photo.
Thank you so much!
