Based In: Southwest

Hi! We’re Paul & Katie!  We are an award winning elopement photo+video duo. We help couples plan, curate, outfit & document other-worldly “one-of-a-kind” adventure elopement experiences throughout the southwest.

Our home is in the furthest northwest corner of New Mexico which has afforded us the opportunity to develop a special expertise navigating the hidden gems of this area. (Of course we’re willing travel anywhere but our 3 kiddos keep us grounded mostly to the Four Corners.)

We are probably remembered most by our ability to become “fast friends” with every couple, helping our subjects feel relaxed and care free in front of the camera. 

If you find yourself resonating with any of the following experiences we could be the perfect match to tell your story.

Do you want to…..

  • deep dive into the most remote parts of the Southwest?
  • experience places like Sedona, Kanab, Moab, Zion and all throughout the southwest in the most unique and immersive way possible?
  • explore through uncharted territory and actually get married along the way?
  • connect with mother earth in powerful, even transformative,  spiritual ways to further consecrate your union?
  • feel the rejuvenating energy that surges through vortexes and rare other-worldly landscapes?

If you feel a magnetic pull toward the Southwest, and your relationship is 100% about SHARING EPIC EXPERIENCES & ADVENTURES, then we are DEFINITELY the right camera folks for you.

Let SHUTTERFREEK to be your trusted Adventure Architects during one of the most significant experiences of your life!

Please visit our site to check pricing and inquire about our availability. Once we connect, we follow these steps to help you curate the experience of a lifetime:

  • First – hone in on a target date range and general location.
  • Share full galleries of adventures throughout the Southwest to provide ideas and concepts.
  • Once we’ve landed on a date and location we formally book with a deposit and begin creating what we call an “Adventure Menu”.

Your Adventure Menu will consist of a list of possible accommodations (Glamping options, Hotels, Boutique Hotels, Yurts, VRBO’s, RV, etc.), possible adventures in the area (horseback rides, hot air balloon, river fun, paddle boarding, hikes, climbing, repelling, biking, onewheeling, etc.), and lastly location options for your ceremony and dusk photo session.

Once we’ve developed an itinerary for your trip, we’ll start connecting you with all the required vendors needed to execute the experience (this includes locking down all necessary permitting if required).

What we are doing with adventure elopements is extremely unique to the industry. No one else really does what we do, the way we do it. 15+ years expertise has taught us how to execute these complex experiences without a hitch.

Interested in something a little more simple and streamlined? No problem. We do that too.

Thanks so much for spending some time on our profile. Huge congrats on your Engagement! We can’t wait to meet and hopefully share an experience & wedding story of a lifetime.  Let’s make your Adventure Elopement something your friends & family won’t believe until they see the photos & video! ✌🏼

Kanab, UT Adventure Elopement featuring White Pocket, Buckskin Gulch & Cave Lakes Ranch.

Shutterfreek is unlike any couple we’ve ever worked with. They pull off with two people what would normally require a large team. If they’re available, book this couple immediately you won’t regret it. Authentic story telling at its finest.

My husband and I had our adventure elopement with Paul and Katie in Moab at Dead Horse Point State Park! They were absolutely amazing to work with! From helping with vendor recommendations, to getting the coolest shots, and just generally having fun with us throughout the day, I can’t recommend them enough!!! If you are looking for people to be wow’d by your wedding photos, you’ve found the right people!

Kate & Tyler

UN-REAL. Paul and Katie at Shutterfreek are gifted storytellers and exceptional artists. They came highly recommended, and they did not disappoint... Quite the opposite: they blew us away!! They are both professional, incredibly fun, and they went above and beyond to capture the excitement and love throughout our entire wedding weekend. It has been such a pleasure getting to know them, and we would be thrilled to work with them again!!

Madeleine & Carlton
Pagosa Springs Wedding

It is very challenging to put in to words with how happy we are with going with Shutterfreek on our wedding day. Paul surpassed all of our expectations with the quality of product that was received from our big day. Our videos are truly amazing and is something we will be able to cherish and hold onto forever. He was incredibly easy to work with from our very first communication to receiving our final videos. Paul radiated a very fun and welcoming vibe which made working with him that much better and made us feel much more comfortable. It also helped with producing such a special product. We have watched our videos hundreds of times, over and over, and every single time it brings us tears of joy. It is incredibly difficult to relive such a special day in our lives but Shutterfreek has given us the impossible by giving us such a perfect video to cherish for the rest of our lives together.

We just got our video from our desert elopement adventure and couldn’t be happier! On our elopement it was just us, so it was really important that we had a high quality video to make our family and friends feel like they were part of the experience. Shutterfreek did not fall short!! The video is incredible. Not only is their work is so impressive, they are also passionate and very responsive which helps the whole experience. 10/10 would recommend!
