About Your Elopement Photographer

My name is Nikole and I am the human behind this business. I value the ability to slow down and be fully present. I value the ability to make the most out of the time I have with the people I love. Relationships and life as we know it can look completely different tomorrow, so I try to revel in the moments that are right in front of me. Photography is a way for me to help you revel in your moments as well.

Elopements are a way to get married that are rooted in quality time and experience. You get to design the perfect day, one free of compromise, anxiety or stress. You get to be fully present and make the most out of every moment you share with the person (or people) you love most on the day you get married. Life is too short to worry about table linens or seating charts.

What I Do

I work as a Texas elopement photographer as well as a planning guide. All of my elopement packages include photography, timeline building, location scouting, vendor referrals and more. Adventurous elopements are the combination of two worlds, the wedding and the outdoor recreation world. It is incredibly important to have someone in your corner who knows not only how to prepare for all of the moments that take place on a wedding day but who can prepare for a hike through the desert or into the mountains as well. Someone who knows how to navigate the trails, understands how to prep for all kinds of weather and packs all of that extra hiking gear you don’t even realize you might need. That’s where I come in.

My Photography

My photography style is very much rooted in documentary photography. I act as a fly on the wall for 90% of the day, capturing moments in an honest light. For the few directed moments, I simply hold space for you to be yourselves. You already know how to hold hands, how to hug, and how to make each other feel safe. I just give you space to do so.

I document your story so you can re-live it time and time again. So the generations that come next can experience it as if they were right by your side.

Hello everyone! If you’re looking for THE BEST photographer and elopement guide you have to look no further! Having Nikole as our elopement photographer was the best decision we could’ve made! She literally made everything so easy! We eloped at Big Bend National Park and we were so scared about the whole process because we’ve never been in Texas before and the first thing we were going to do was eloping! Nikole helped us with each and every doubt I had about the process, permits, vendors, etc.! She always had an answer and so many great ideas for our day that it even made the planification process very exciting! She’s such a talented, thoughtful and beautiful human being! Our experience on our elopement day was BEYOND THIS WORLD! We enjoyed every minute of it and never had to worry about anything!! Nikole made sure that everything worked out as we wanted. It was the best day and experience of our lives, and it was for the most part, thanks to her! <3 As I mentioned before, one of the things I appreciated the most was her thoughtfulness. We had to start hiking before sunrise and she made sure we stayed warm and cozy by bringing hand warmers and extra layers! She made us feel as if we had known her for many years! Our photos are the most precious memory of the best day of our lives! They’re so beautiful and natural that I look at them and I can transport myself to every single place! It's been 3 months since our elopement and the photos still make me cry of joy! She was able to capture every meaningful moment and expression of love… that’s what makes them so precious and valuable to us! We’re forever grateful that we chose Nikole to be part of this amazing day! Her photos immortalize your experience as you have no idea! If you have reached this point, you don't have to keep looking: SHE’S THE ONE! Honestly guys, you won’t regret having Nikole Velasco as your photographer and/or elopement guide! Is the best decision we made for our most special day and we’re still grateful for that! I want the same excitement, experience and memories my husband and I had, for all of you as well! That’s why I 200% recommend her! You’ll not only have an amazing photographer for your special day but also a friend! <3 -Jahaira

Search no further if you need a great photographer, Nikole was amazing! Months of guided planning, calls to keep on same page, and her communication made our travel elopement go so smooth! She even went the extra mile to scout out the areas we planned to take photos a couple days before, ensuring they’d be good choices. Not only did she help plan, she travelled for us, mapped everything out, hiked in the dark of the morning to the heat of midday with us, and captured the most beautiful images! My husband and I never took professional photos before, but Nikole made us comfortable and relaxed with her great personality. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer or experience than we had with her, and we will be recommending her to anyone we know seeking a photographer!

I can't say enough good things about Nikole. Our experience was so positive. It starts with planning tools and guides, then she is incredibly professional and responsive with phone calls and emails, and our engagement photo shoot and our elopement went so well! Her photos are absolutely gorgeous and Nikole herself is a joy to spend time with. Every detail was taken care of and as the bride her process made me feel very relaxed and like she had everything taken care of. I'm obsessed with our photos!!!! I would highly recommend working with her.
