WHY ELOPE?

Have you ever wished your wedding day could be stress free with no expecations to please everyone, except the two of you? Have you ever wished you could do things 100% YOUR way?
Not being judged because you want to do things differently and unconventional?

Then welcome to the beautiful world of elopements!

An elopement gives you all the freedom in the world to decide where and how to get married.

WHY ELOPEMENTS ARE SPECIAL TO ME

“Just us”

This is the very core of what an elopement means these days.

A 100% intentional and meaningful experience with the focus on the two of you. You are in full control of how you spend your day and with whom.

If you have decided on doing exactly that - kudos to you! You have made the brave decision to put your vision and love first and make your wedding about what really matters: the two of you.

Being invited into that space as a photographer is just about the greatest honour we can imagine. This is why I care about your experience, what you do and where you go. How you spent your day and with whom.

My promise to you?

To be most awesome third wheel you can imagine.

 

Ready to HAVE THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIVES?

There is nothing more special than planning your wedding away with your fiancé and sometimes including a handful of the most important people in your life.

YOU DESERVE TO CELEBRATE YOUR LOVE IN A WAY IT MATTERS TO YOU MOST.

I know what you’re thinking: how do we do this?

What would you do? Where would you go?

(This may take a while… ;-) )

Got it?

Well, there’s your elopement day!

It’s your story.

And you make the rules.

To make it a little MORE TANGIBLE, here’s a few sample timelines TO GET A FEEL FOR WHAT AN ELOPEMENT DAY COULD LOOK LIKE AND HOW VERSATILE IT CAN BE.

Always remember: Your elopement is not a non-stop photoshoot - who really wants THAT? It’s a day full of joy, exploring, fun and breaks to relax. The focus will always be on you having the best day you can imagine (and if that includes naptime between sunrise and sunset, hey - be my guest!) and I happen to be there to document your experience.

WHAT I CAN HELP YOU WITH

CREATING YOUR VISION
For starters, let's talk about your dreams and visions for your wedding day - as vague as they may be. If you live too far away for a personal get-together, let’s Skype or Facetime. In between I'm only an e-mail or phone call away.

TIPPS&SUGGESTIONS FOR EPIC ELOPEMENT LOCATIONS
If you haven’t already set your eyes on a specific place to elope, I’ll help you with recommendations and location suggestions. I’ll help you figure out a timeline for a fun yet photo friendly version of your wedding day without having it feel like a “photoshoot”. Also, I’m happy to connect you with vendors (florists, elopement planners, etc.) that will help to make your day special and stress free.

ELOPEMENT COVERAGE
I capture authentic moments as they happen in documentary style and give direction anytime that I think it helps the story. Your elopement should never feel like a constant photoshoot - we’ll take breaks if we need them, we’ll take our time to explore, relax, have fun and I’m always around to capture the story.
