An Adventure Elopement is an intentionally planned wedding day that is way off the beaten path.

This is a wedding day with the two of you in mind. Where have you always wanted to go? What adventurous experience have you always wanted to share together? An adventure elopement is planning your wedding day around questions like these!
 Just think of it as the trip of your dreams where you also share your vows and say 'I do'.

Activities can include: hiking, kayaking, camping, ice skating, bunjee-jumping, travelling to a new country, going for a helicopter tour!
Anything that drums up that excitement in your heart, make that your wedding day!

what is an adventure elopement?

What is an intimate wedding?

Do we need an officiant & witnesses?

What locations are you familiar with?

HOw far in advance should we book our elopement or wedding?

why is an elopement more expensive than a wedding?

"I'm nervous about posing & Feel super awkward in front of the camera"

Trust me, everybody experiences those pre-photoshoot jitters, you are not alone. Having your photo taken is a very intimate experience, it's true. I know that vulnerability that you feel, that awkwardness, I totally get that you might be nervous about this. 
However, this can be such a beautiful & freeing experience! 
Just remember: You don't need to be perfect, this is about creating art & memories, it's about expressing & sharing your love. 

I send ALL of my clients a Photoshoot Guide prior to our session together to help you feel a bit more prepared for my style of shooting, choosing outfits, how to pose. All that good stuff!
I also strive to create a calm space absolutely free of judgment where you can be yourself & express yourself as you wish. Feel free to be emotional, fierce, sappy, whatever you want to be.
If music is something that helps you to relax, let's play some music to get yourself out of your head & enjoying yourself!

could you recommend the perfect location for  our wedding day?

I am so happy to give recommendations -
First I will gather some details from you -
What season do you picture your wedding in? What do you want the weather to be like?
Do you want water or mountains?
Once I know your ideal backdrop I will help find you the PERFECT location to get married at.



Intimate Weddings have small guest lists & are centred around creating a closer, more intimate experience for you & your guests on your wedding day!

Smaller weddings allow for more freedom, less time restriction & create a genuine space for you to connect with one another.

Skip the intense timeline, big guest list & just focus on spending the day together as a couple, relax
and share genuine moments with your family, and close friends

This is definitely up to you & depends on the laws in the province or country you choose to get married in.
 If you would like to have a ceremony during your elopement you can hire an officiant to come along, & 2 witnesses. Your officiant will bring all of the necessary documents, you just need to bring a BLACK pen
(I always bring extras)
If you would like to just sign your marriage certificate at the courthouse & get 'legally' married and THEN have your elopement that is a second option!
 I recommend doing this for destination weddings taking place in another country.
 I truly believe your vows secure your union, more than the paperwork.

About 6-12 months in advance. If the date is super important to you then I would say the sooner the better!





Elopements are no longer running off to Vegas to be married by Elvis.

Elopements are A TON of work, there is a lot of planning, location scouting, sometimes planning a hike or an adventure experience, finding accommodations, food, obtaining & paying for permits, recommending and coordinating with other vendors. 

When photographing a wedding we basically just show up & shoot - You have already planned it all out- You might have a planner, decorator, caterer - everybody has a role in managing & creating an aspect of your wedding day to make it run smoothly. For an elopement that typically isn't the case..

Being dedicated to creating a one of a kind elopement experience for you as a couple, I take on a lot of responsibility - And when it comes to planning your elopement; there is so much more going on behind the scenes than you may realize. There are hours upon hours, blood, sweat and tears spent planning & organizing  your elopement & that is why a good elopement photographer will charge more for an elopement than a wedding!
