I’m a traveling wedding + elopement + couple photographer serving the Southwest- Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and SoCal.

I grew my passion for elopements after my husband and I eloped at Moraine Lake in Banff National Park. We had originally planned for a traditional wedding with friends and family- we even put a deposit down on a venue, but as we started to plan, we realized a big wedding wasn’t for us. Every detail we needed to plan and every dime we had to invest was into a whole production for our guests. What will our guests eat? How will we entertain them? How will we make sure they aren’t bored? What decor should we pick? Should we have cake? Does anyone ever really eat the cake? All these little details we had to think about were not something we enjoyed at all. We’re the type of couple that values experiences over these tiny things and having to invest our savings into them just didn’t feel right to us.

So, we checked our travel bucket list (I totally recommend every couple make one of these for your relationship) and picked our number one spot- Lake Moraine. We planned the entire trip around what we both envisioned for our special day and it turned out to be even more than we had expected. I feel so incredibly passionate about providing this experience to other couples because I truly believe this is the best way to get married.

You deserve an entire day all about YOU and your partner doing whatever is uniquely YOU. I’m dedicated to changing the wedding game because traditional weddings aren’t for everyone-trust me, I know!

If you love to adventure and want to capture all the memories, I’m your girl!

Karen was fantastic! When she did our engagement photos, Ryan & I instantly knew she would be the only photographer we hire for all our big moments together. Then after we changed our big wedding plans to a smaller elopement she helped with every detail! Including helping us find a location that really fit our vision & took our breath away! She’s one of the easiest people to connect with & there’s no hesitation to open up and be yourselves while she captures the moments you never want to forget

Karen was GREAT, we instantly connected. I had a vision of where I wanted to go for my bridal adventure session and Karen went the distance, quite literally, to get the shots I had envisioned. Hiking 11 miles up mountains, to look outs and waterfalls. Taking on the heat and humidity like a boss. Communication was on point, never leaving me questioning details about our session. Seriously she was a dream to work with and would highly recommend to all who are looking for a photographer.

I am so glad that I stumbled across Karen Castor Photography!! She was absolutely one of the best photographers I've ever had the chance to work with! I loved that she was willing to go the distance for me and my fiance! Karen was very creative and had an amazing eye for the best shots!! We got to learn a whole bunch of new cool poses that turned out so beautiful! I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for an elopement photographer!!!

Karen is incredible. We chose her for our wedding and with uprooting our first big wedding and with what seemed like everything falling apart she made me feel at ease going with the flow with all my random ideas reassuring me it would all work out. And that it did! She was like invisible you barley noticed her at the wedding but oh my gosh the shots she got were amazing. I look at them constantly just to relive the moments because she captured our laughter and emotions so perfectly. She was so sweet so easy going she made it easy and fun. We are so excited to use Karen again for our future shoots

Merry Go Round Rock Adventure Elopement

Teresa and Jeremy invited their two closest friends along on an off roading adventure to Merry Go Round Rock in Sedona Arizona to elope. They rented jeep wranglers from Red Rock Rubicon and made the journey up Schnebly Hill Road to catch the sunset. After their epic sunset elopement, Teresa and Jeremy celebrated with their friends with a quick drink and photos then explored around Merry Go Round Rock for bridal portraits. They had their first dance overlooking the valley and then headed back down the hill while stopping along the way to get blue hour photos in front of the jeep. At the end of the night, their best friends had decorated their Airbnb with balloons, confetti, and had special champagne ready for them when they got back.
