What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a wedding? Probably the traditional, lavish (think pinterest), over the top celebration that somehow loses the initial purpose of a wedding.
Now let me ask, “How would you want to celebrate? Who do you want to be there? Where does that take place?” All of this is probably 1000x different than what society may see a wedding as – and yes – that is awesome! Don’t fit the mold! Be different! Celebrate however you want to!
With this basic foundation and mindset, the possibilities are limitless. Elopements and intimate weddings provide so much more flexibility and allow for more ‘go with the flow’ type of mentality. Do you want to hike up a mountain? Do you want to go on an adventure and explore a new bucket list country? Would you like to celebrate your culture and heritage? We are not bound to a specific timeline, agenda, or idea.
I’ve found elopements to be much more emotional and meaningful as well. You can be yourself and not have a million eyes gazing upon you. It holds significance and purpose. I genuinely am able to capture peoples personalities. I get to know you two on a personal and friendship level which goes much more beyond the photos. I strive to be able to build that type of connection in life and with the people around me. Photography becomes the way I express that connection.
There is so much that can be shared about elopements and intimate weddings, so feel free to reach out to me! I promise, I do not bite!

I currently reside in the Washington DC and Baltimore area. I travel often but due to COVID-19 most elopements and intimate weddings have been limited to the DC, Maryland, Virginia area or any neighboring states.
