I help couples build a wedding day that is as meaningful as possible by learning to question the status quo, and challenging them to listen to their intuition – even for those who already know they want to elope.

When we look at our pictures, we remember every point in the day and how we felt. We had the perfect day. And it was all documented so we can remember it forever.” – September 2022 All Day Elopement Couple



There is no one right way to elope, and that’s the way it should be.

The best part about eloping is that you can celebrate having the freedom to do whatever you and your partner want on your wedding day. Want to say your vows at the top of a 50 foot balcony in the redwoods? I know a place. Dreaming of dipping your toes (or more!) in the ocean in your wedding outfits? You got it. Thinking about bringing along your ten closest people, or no one at all? Either way and anything in between is perfect.

This is your wedding day, and you get to call all of the shots.

This is your opportunity to prioritize the wedding experience you never knew you could have.

And I not only advocate for my couples to design their fully aligned wedding experience, but I did the same for me and my husband.

Our 18-guest wedding took place in September 2021 and designing the day around what felt right to us was a huge focus, regardless of what “tradition” (or my parents) said. At times it was hard to stick to my guns when faced with their disappointment, but I knew in my heart of hearts that this was the wedding day that truly made me happy more than anything else.

Wondering what designing our intentional wedding looked like? We…

  • grounded ourselves with a meditation that our officiant read to us privately before our ceremony began
  • held space for ourselves and our people by standing in the middle of the aisle for a few minutes mid-ceremony, soaking the experience up
  • had guests leave notes to us yearbook-style on a large matted photo of us (that still hangs in our living room) as a guest book
  • entered our ceremony in a completely unique way that was extremely meaningful to me
  • skipped a dance party and had dinner at a restaurant, just the two of us, at 8pm after our wedding ended

We focused on only doing versions of things that felt good to us.

This is the beauty of intentionally designing your elopement day.

I’m not here to tell you that you should ditch every single tradition and do the opposite just for the hell of it. But I AM here to tell you that you owe it to yourself to ask questions about whether a tradition is truly serving you, or if doing it another way would be better and more aligned with how you want to experience your elopement.

Let’s create the elopement experience of your dreams outside in a beautiful place.

If I sound like someone you want on your team for your day, I’d love to hear all about your vision!

Meg was the BEST decision we made for our wedding! As soon as we saw Meg's photos, we knew that she'd capture the aesthetic we wanted for our wedding photos. Upon reading more on her website, we absolutely had to have her as our photographer! We would recommend Meg in a heartbeat to a friend, and definitely would love to hire her for any future photography needs. We are still in awe over how beautiful our wedding photos are, and we know that we'll cherish them for years to come!

Not only did our photos come out amazing, but Meg made our wedding extra special with all of the little touches along the way before, during, and after the wedding. All of the questionnaires and conversations we had beforehand made us comfortable knowing that we had made the right choice in hiring her!

Lindsay + Clint

We are so happy Meg was our photographer! She was super responsive, flexible, funny and incredibly easy to work with. We were planning our special day on an extremely tight deadline and Meg genuinely cared to help us make it memorable. She went above and beyond to suggest great spots for our ceremony, photoshoots and she even had a list of cute Airbnbs! Meg is extremely knowledgeable and she made us feel comfortable throughout every step. On the day of our elopement, Meg made everything natural and fun. The results exceeded our expectations! The photos captured the personality and joy of our wedding day as well as the most intimate and detailed moments in such a beautiful and unique way. Meg is a real gem!

Kseniya + Nathan

Meg made us feel so relaxed and laid back during our elopement. She found THE most beautiful spot for the ceremony which was a great surprise. For anyone who is looking for a fun, reliable, and talented photographer, Meg's got it all! Not only is she incredibly talented but from day one she was so reliable, punctual, and always made us feel like we were taken care of. Thanks so much making this a day that we will never forget!

Jillian + Shay

Meg was so amazing to work with! She did so much more than capture our intimate moments! She helped us with the boutonnière, had emergency bobby pins for my veil, and found an amazing spot for us to take portraits at without a fee. Meg went above and beyond and truly contributed to making our elopement a fairytale experience.

Jasmine + Alejandro

Meg was super professional and helpful in keeping to our schedule (she gave us feedback and helped finalize our wedding schedule which was so helpful). I love our wedding photos, she captured so many wonderful moments, candid and portrait and I would recommend her in a heartbeat! I'm printing many of the photos to include with our thank you notes to friends and family for coming to our microwedding during a pandemic. Thank you Meg for your help and support, it made all the difference!
