Adventure Wedding & Elopement Photographer
co-crafting & documenting amazing experiences in the wild
Hey You Two!
You and your love, standing in a place that feels like heaven. Your eyes meet, and it’s like the whole world stops to watch. Around you, nature in all its glory – big mountains, the soothing crash of ocean waves, and a calm, serene forest.
It’s not some big, fancy production, but just you two, totally chill, taking all the time you need to say your vows. No pressure, no rush, just your hearts doing the talking. And if you’d like, a few of your closest peeps can be there too, soaking in the love-filled moment.
Then, you’re off to do all the things you both adore, in places so incredible they’ll make your jaws drop. From soaring mountaintops to cozy valleys, you’re starting this fresh chapter with a blast of laughter, shared adventure, and that amazing feeling of being side by side.
It’s all about you two taking on life’s adventure together, with all the epic excitement and sweet moments. And when the day winds down, you’ll know your love story is one for the books!
So What exactly is an Adventure Elopement?
It’s like a wedding stripped down to its core – just you two, an officiant, and maybe a handful of witnesses if you’re feeling it. There are even places where you can make it official without a single witness in sight.
This kind of small-scale wedding lets you focus on what truly matters – you and your partner, making that everlasting commitment. Say goodbye to the stress and wild hullabaloo of a big, traditional wedding. Instead, it’s all about you, your love, and the magic that unfolds in the simplicity of the moment.
And…You’re not just exchanging vows; you’re embarking on an adventure together. Think about all the amazing activities you can toss into the mix to make your day unforgettable.
It’s your love story, but with an extra dose of adventure and a lot less hassle. It’s you, your partner, and a world of possibilities waiting to be explored – all on the most epic day ever!
NO ONE CAN TELL YOUR STORY QUITE LIKE YOU…
My focus is on getting to know you inside out. Your passions, your roots – the real nitty-gritty stuff. Why? ‘Cause that’s what makes your heart tick. I’m all ears, ready to soak in every detail that’s important to you.
But it’s a two-way street, my friends. I want you to know me too, to see the person behind the lens. Why? So when the big day comes, you feel as cozy as a pair of well-worn slippers. You can trust me enough to drop any guard and let your true selves shine. After all, this is your moment, your story, and I’m here to capture it in all its raw, unfiltered glory.
I offer a range of packages, from a quick half-day all the way to a full-blown multi-day extravaganza. Packages also include my travel – I’m on board to make those memories with you, wherever the adventure takes us.
If you’re craving something a tad different from the norm, don’t sweat it. Custom packages are totally on the table – we can craft something that’s uniquely you.
Here’s the best part, though. No matter which package you choose, you’re getting a boatload of goodies:
- Planning: I’m your sidekick, helping you map out the plan, sorting permits, and even hooking you up with awesome vendor recommendations.
- Location scouting: I’m on the hunt for those breathtaking spots, so you don’t have to lift a finger.
- Photographer travel? Check! I’m coming to capture your moments, no matter where you’re headed.
- Top-notch curation & editing: I’ve got the skills to make your memories pop like fireworks in the night sky.
- Your personal online gallery and print shop: you’re getting a slick online gallery to relive those epic moments. And if you’re itching to turn those memories into high quality physical keepsakes, there’s a print shop waiting for you too.
- Oh, and don’t forget your personal print release: That’s right, you’re free to print those beauties however and whenever you want.
It’s all about making your special day as seamless and stunning as possible. Let’s dive in and create some magic!

“HILLARY DID AN INCREDIBLE JOB ON OUR WEDDING PHOTOS! SHE HAD FUN, UNIQUE IDEAS FOR POSES THAT MADE OUR EXPERIENCE VERY ENJOYABLE!”
“My husband and I are super camera shy, but she was able to work with us and bring us out of our shells for some outstanding photos we will enjoy looking back on for years to come! Her demeanor was very relaxed and easy going, so we didn’t have any stress when unexpected problems arose (like rain, mud, and thrown off timing). She even seemed to enjoy the opportunity to get creative when things got unpredictable! We were very happy with our experience and expect you will be too!”
