Venture Ever After specializes in adventure elopement photography and experiences in the PNW. My focus is on helping people in love have the intimate wedding of their dreams in magical outdoor spaces. I believe that love is best strengthened through meaningful, shared experiences, and what better occasion to approach with intentionality and meaning as your wedding day?

When you choose to elope, you’re choosing to get married free of society’s wedding day expectations. So go wild! Choose to spend the entire day in your favorite place, with your favorite person. Wear a fancy outfit, or wear your hiking boots. Invite your dog instead of your mom’s second cousin. Share your first kiss under the stars instead of under an altar.

In the great outdoors, you write the wedding rules. And I’m here to help make it an experience you’ll remember for a lifetime.


About Me

I’m Nadia (she/her). I’m a PNW local with a deep appreciation of and respect for the wondrous outdoor spaces here and the people who love them as much as I do. It’s a dream to bring that passion and experience to every elopement adventure I get to create — including yours.


My Values

I do this work for two reasons: Because I love people and I love the planet.


I love all types of people, and yet all types of people are not always celebrated in the wedding industry, or in outdoor spaces.

F that.

To my kindred adventurous souls, to the BIPOC community, to the disabled, to my fellow members of the LGBTQ+ community — I’m here, welcoming you with open arms.

You deserve an elopement experience you’ll never forget, regardless of what you look like, how old you are, or who you love. And I’m going to make sure you get it.


I’ve always felt a deep connection to the Earth. And it’s easy to see why, living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. But even outside the region, Mother Nature’s gifts are everywhere.

Now, it’s my turn to pay back some of the joy our planet has given me. I’ve invested in becoming a Leave No Trace certified photographer, conserving energy through my personal and business choices, and continuing to lean into environmental activism.

Choose Nadia! Just do it - she's the best. Nadia photographed our micro wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic, so she was one of only four other adults at our ceremony - and the single person we spent the most time with on our wedding day. She is a wonderful human who has an incredible knack for capturing all the special moments while staying out of the way of them. Some photographers don't understand that it's not about them - Nadia is the complete opposite. She added to the fun on our wedding day by just being her, and her time management and planning support were a huge stress reliever. And wow - her photos are AMAZING. My husband and I are both perfectionistic designers with a combined 30 years of experience between us - we don't hand out aesthetic compliments unless they're well deserved. Nadia also provides super responsive customer service. I seriously don't know where she finds the time to do all she does and do it so well. All I know is how grateful we are that we chose her (and we say that to each other and our friends/family frequently!). Choose Nadia.

I can’t even begin to say how happy we are that Nadia was our photographer. She is absolutely amazing and we LOVE both the engagement and wedding photos. She captured the feeling and the moments perfectly. She is professional, friendly, and has an energy about her which made everything fun and feel effortless. She responded quickly to all our questions and took the time to provide tips for our timeline. We went in looking for a photographer and came out of the experience with a friend.

Put simply, our wedding day would not have been the same if Nadia wasn't our photographer! Nadia made taking photos so fun, easy and quick. She captured all our intimate, laughter, joyful and so many other moments that I will forever cherish. Nadia is a breeze to work with. She was quick getting back to us and always very clear of what was needed to make sure nothing fell behind. Oh and did I mention the images are BEAUTIFUL?! We did both an engagement session and our wedding photos through Nadia and each set were stunning. She knows what she's capturing and how to capture it. If you are looking for a wedding/engagement photographer I 100% recommend her.

I can't begin to explain how grateful I am to have been able to work with Nadia for my wedding day. She was enthusiastic and inspired. She went above and beyond to connect with our venue to ensue the event went as smoothly as possible. Nadia has a masterful eye, was always thinking one step ahead, and made this awkward bride feel comfortable in front of the camera. Her calm demeanor and 'dont worry, I have an plan' attitude set me at ease and I spent no time worrying about the pictures from the day. I felt like I had a dear friend who knew me well walking through the day with me because Nadia made an effort to connect with me on a personal level. Yes, I would recommend Nadia Joyce Photography and I would work with her again in a heartbeat!

Nadia was abosultely amazing to work with. The photos she took of our impromptu wedding day during an epic rain storm on the Oregon Coast were breathtaking!! She was nothing but professional, kind, funny, talented and thoughtful! We would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. You will NOT be disappointed:)! Thanks Nadia!


Nadia was amazing to work with for our wedding. From the first time we talked on the phone, we knew we had found the right person to document our day. She is as professional as she needs to be while keeping it light and fun. She is always prompt in responding to questions, would check in with us before the big day to make sure we had everything we needed from her, and throughly explained the way she does things so there were no surprises. Her personality shines through her process throughout the event. She has a great eye and was able to get shots that we will cherish forever. She spoiled us with her thoughtfulness and treats through the mail. We cannot wait for our next opportunity to work with Nadia.

Nadia is nothing less than exceptional! If you do not use her for your wedding, you will come to regret it! I have worked with numerous photographers through my job--all of whom were great; however, Nadia was the best photographer I have ever hired. From our initial call with her to post-wedding, she has gone above and beyond. She is an excellent communicator, logistical wiz, incredibly talented, and the warmest, kindest person to work with. There just are not enough words to possibly describe how amazing every photo that Nadia snapped. She has mastered her craft. She has a magical way of finding the perfect angle, lighting, and captured moments that my husband and I will treasure forever.
