The Drawhorns

Based In: Colorado

We’re Jess and Austin Drawhorn — we’re married adventure elopement photographers based in Boulder, Colorado

We travel all over the western US together and love being outdoors, living simply, and finding new experiences. Couples hire us to help them pull off a wedding day that’s all about who they are and what they love – enjoying an intimate day day together somewhere beautiful. We’re not just photographers, we’re planners & officiants too.

We let the experience drive the photos, not the other way around. It’s a simple change thing goes a long way. Because when you put the focus on just connecting and doing something awesome together, you find yourself worrying less about the photos. You’ve got two professionals handling the photos for you, helping you feel comfortable and encouraging you to just do your thing — which happens to make for great photos to remember it all by.

Not for your family. Not for the gram. For you.

We cannot express enough how grateful we were to get to work with the Drawhorns for our elopement. They were extremely generous with their time and went out of their way to ensure everything went as planned including bringing our flowers and license to the ceremony AND mailing it back to us weeks later.

They are just lovely people and we really enjoyed getting to know them on our hike. On top of making us comfortable in front of the camera and taking breathtakingly beautiful shots, they were extremely professional and took all the necessary precautions to keep us safe.

We had the most wonderful experience and are so happy we decided to elope for our wedding. We will never forget that day because of the amazing photos we have and because of the genuine kindness we were shown by the Drawhorns. They are such a thoughtful and talented couple/team, we couldn't have asked for anything more!

If you are thinking about eloping and you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with the Drawhorns- take it! I do not know many people who can make it feel normal to meet in a dark parking lot at 4:00 am and start heading out into the woods, but Jess and Austin totally pull it off. With their help our elopement kept all the wedding traditions we love i.e. vows, ring exchange, first dance, but left behind all the stress and conventional norms that did not fit us a couple. Everyone who has looked at our pictures has said how happy we look and that really does sum up our experience. We feel fortunate to have found the Drawhorns and to have stunning photos that we will keep for the rest of our lives. Thank you Jess and Austin!

When we first decided to elope, we started browsing Instagram looking at elopement photography. Our dream was to elope in the mountains in Colorado, and we stumbled on The Drawhorns IG feed. It was like magic. You can feel the emotion in their pictures. As we read more of their posts, we realized they shared a lot of the same values. We booked them almost immediately after finding them! Jess was very informative and asked a lot of questions to get a feel for what we were envisioning. Between a couple of video chats and emails, we felt fully prepared for our big day. Being an introvert, I was worried that I would be exhausted going for a long hike with people I didn't know on our wedding day but it was the opposite. I mean, don't get me wrong-we were physically exhausted but it was the best day of our lives! Both Austin and Jess are true artists, each with their own strengths that complement each other. They are real, genuine people who believe whole-heartedly in the work they do. Our day with them was incredible! The day we saw our gallery of images (which was well before the timeframe they gave us), we were taken back to those exact moments. Jess and Austin were able to document our day so beautifully. We're in the process of choosing a few images for wall portraits and it's so tough because there are so many beautiful portraits! Thank you Jess and Austin, for your creativity and your warm energy. We're already dreaming of an adventure anniversary shoot!
