This is us just a few minutes after Michael asked me to be his wife. We spent the day bouldering in Crested Butte, Colorado. My sister-in-law came over to me as I was packing up my hammock (because sometimes when you're bouldering you need a good siesta) and asked me to take yoga photos with her. Sure thing, we do that all the time. Then, as I was walking to this very field, my brother came over to me and said Michael wanted me to fly his drone. I knew immediately something was up because at the time I had NEVER flown the drone. I walked over to Michael and he was very obviously nervous. He was frustrated with his drone, handed it to me and told me to fly it (with nothing on the screen and literally no clue what I was doing), and then pulled the ring out of his pocket to make sure it was still there. He then put it back in his pocket, like I didn't already see it, and got down on one knee. I like to think that I see his soul every day, but I really saw all of it that afternoon, and I saw how much his soul loves mine. He declared his love for me, shed a few tears, and then asked me to go on a lifelong adventure with him. I get to experience adventurous love with him every day, and together we are so excited to cross paths with more adventurous lovers. You are our people.
We LOVE to travel. We love traveling so much that we decided to do it full time. Our home is a camper, and it allows us to capture love all over. In 2020, we will wander around the United States and Canada. Click the link below to check out our travel schedule.
If you flag us down along the way, there are no travel fees for us to capture your rad love story. If you're not on our travel schedule, no worries! We will hop on a plane and make a bee line straight for you. In the last year, we traveled to Australia, Ireland, Jamaica, The Cayman Islands, Mexico, and all over the US to capture incredible journeys. We've got this travel thing down.
What we craft for your day is totally up to you! Our adventure elopements are typically 5-8 hours. This includes hiking, any necessary travel during your elopement, the ceremony + events, and your adventure session. Your adventure elopement can also include an overnight camping trip, full backpacking trips, snorkeling adventures, you name it!
The amount of hiking we do for an adventure elopement is totally up to you. We will provide location suggestions based on what you are up for. We will usually hike at least a few miles, but we also have plenty of "easy to get to" locations in case you have guests who need something a little easier. After your ceremony, we can venture off to a different epic location for your adventure session.
OF COURSE! This is YOUR day. If you have loved ones that you want surrounding you, bring them! The more the merrier.
Yes, PLEASE DO. We love animals, and if your elopement is a few days long, we might bring our dog too (as long as your dog is cool with it). It's important to remember that not all national parks allow dogs on their trails, and we will respect the laws and rules of whatever space we are in. If your pup is allowed, bring them!
We don't really believe in bad weather. We will make sure you are safe, and we will still have an awesome adventure! If you have checked out our travel map, you might notice that we are moving pretty quickly through the U.S. and Canada. Because of this, we can't really "come back next week" when the sun is shining. We won't have you out in dangerous conditions like avalanches, mudslides, or lightning-- but we aren't afraid of a little snow or rain. We acutally love what the rain does to the colors in a landscape! If it does get dangerous, we will reschedule.
You sure do. You have the ability to print professionally with us, and we can guarantee quality prints. We offer metal wall art, wood prints, traditional prints, albums, magnets, and even Christmas ornaments. That said, you can totally print yourself and we will help you along the way.
Great question! We are traveling all over the U.S. and Canada in 2020, but we will adventure ANYWHERE. We have photographed worldwide, and plan to continue doing so. Just reach out, and we will head your way! You can check out our current travel schedule here.
No worries! We will still come to you! We LOVE to travel, and capture elopements, weddings, births, and family sessions all over the globe. Reach out and we will give you a travel quote.
Overall, I would say that Michael and I are addicted to fun, and we do what we can to bring that to a session. You will be laughing, and even crying. Our sessions are emotion and movement based. That means that you won't do a lot of "stand here and smile". You will have an experience with one another. We specialize in capturing raw emotion, and we will prompt you to bring out that emotion during your session. It is an awesome journey, trust us.
You can do WHATEVER you want! We also love the water... and the forest, and the desert, and basically anywhere outside. We shoot in the mountains very frequently, but we go wherever the wind blows us. In 2021 we will even offer scuba elopements!
We don't have a set travel rate. We believe that by itemizing our travel, we can save our clients money. We are budget friendly travelers. We love hostels, take public transportation (because who wants to drive on the other side of the road anyway), and don't mind taking that late flight because it is cheaper. If you are planning a destination elopement or wedding, reach out and we can set a travel quote for you.
A traditional elopement is typically two hours, and the location is easily accessible for all friends and family members.
Adventure elopements involve remote locations, and activities like backpacking, camping, or climbing. They are more extreme and tend to be 5-8 hours.
No worries! We get it that this isn't everyone's cup of tea. If you plan on eloping at a courthouse or somewhere where you can make it from start to finish in two hours, you are looking for a traditional elopement. You can find them here.
