We will help craft your day into an experience that rings true to you and reflects who you are as a couple! Now we can scout for your ideal location, map, and do the background work to make your vision a reality.

FAQ

We don’t have the traditional “home base” that most people do. Instead, we live in our converted Sprinter Van and have been on the road for two years now. We can usually be found somewhere on the west coast!

Yes! All of our travel fees are included in our pricing.  Contact us for a detailed pricing guide!

Typically we'll deliver about 200 - 400 images for an elopement.  We like to provide quality images over quantity. Generally, we're shooting thousands of shots over the day and sorting and editing to give you the very best images. In the end, it turns out to be about 30-40 per hour.

At this time, a printed album is not included, but your images will be delivered by giving you access to an online gallery.  You'll be able to download these to share, print, and enjoy.  You will also be able to order prints directly through this gallery via one of our favorite printing companies.

The weather can change pretty quickly in the mountains,  and we'll help prepare you for the best of whatever mother nature can throw at us!  We've shot in all types of weather, and unless it's just awful out, a rainy/snowy/windy day can add some great atmosphere for the photos!  With that said, we always like to chat about a worst-case scenario backup plan. We can't be too flexible for rescheduling an elopement date due to busy schedules and the locations, but we can still deliver an epic elopement day if nasty weather shows up!

We like to help with the whole day, including scouting locations, helping with permits, finding lodging ideas, travel plans, vendor suggestions (i.e. local hair, make-up, florists, and bakeries), and a ton of other things big and little. We won't book any vendors for you, but rather provide you with the information and let you choose someone you want to work with!
If you think you still would like more help with details, we can recommend some of the wedding planners we've loved working with.  They can create a fully designed elopement or intimate wedding -- for example, a meticulously designed table setting, wedding arches, fabulous meals, and more.

Our adventure sessions are up to 2 hours long and usually involve some sort of adventuring (hiking, biking, climbing, etc.).  These are great for engagements, couples sessions, and anniversaries. We don't book these sessions for elopements or vow renewals because you deserve more than that! It's crazy how quickly a wedding day goes by, and even though you're eloping, it doesn't make the day any less special! There simply isn't enough time to give the value and quality you want, nor the quality we want to give.

Yes, we do!!  Becky is an ordained Minister by Open Ministry and can legally perform ceremonies in all 50 states. We offer this service if needed but, if you have someone else in mind, bring them along!   One thing to note, when Becky is performing a ceremony, there will only be one photographer for that part.
