Adventure elopements. This is what they're all about.

We are wild wanderers. We love to backpack, camp, kayak, go climbing, hike, and basically do anything outside. We aren't afraid of rain, snow, or dirt. We love a good, sturdy adventure that leaves you tired at the end of it. We also LOVE elopements, so why not combine the two?

Time for some Adventure prep.

Your investment covers so much more than just your photos and videos. By choosing to elope with Summit + Co., you are choosing a journey and a relationship.

We have captured small intimate elopements, all the way to massive extravagant weddings. We understand the ins and outs of working in other countries, and we have also worked years to perfect our craft.

We will work with you from the trail head of your plans to the summit of your day to help your vision come to life. We will help with finding a location that speaks to your adventurous soul. We will navigate attire + gear, help with vendors, and do everything we can to be sure that your day tells all of your love story. In the mix of this, there will be a few checklists, emails, phone calls, elopement guides, and whatever else you need from us to be all set for your day.

This is our favorite option. Michael and I work really well together, and we also believe that photography + videography combined tell the full story of your love journey. We know how to tango to capture your love and some epic scenery. This is the base price for adventure elopements and encompasses most of what we do, including all of the planning listed above, hiking, and capturing your day with photo, video, and drone. If your elopement has a few more moving parts like extensive travel or a three day long camping trip, there might be a few extra fees added on.

so, what is an adventure elopement?

Honestly, it's whatever you want to make it. It is a mix of YOUR love, and YOUR kind of adventure.
Adventure elopements can include mountains, waterfalls, oceans, and cliffs. If your adventure includes backpacking for an entire day to get to your favorite location and camping overnight, that's what we do. If your adventure is
saying "I do" on top of a 14er, we are there for it.

This is different than a traditional elopement. Traditional elopements are typically two hours, and usually the parents and grandparents don't have a problem coming along. We do those too, just check out our wedding + elopement page, but adventure elopements take it to the next level. These elopements are for people who love the outdoors, and aren't afraid to get a little dirt under their (probably chipped) fingernails. Michael and I specialize in capturing raw, authentic emotion. Your soul is exposed when you are sealing a bond with your soulmate. Your soul will speak, and we want to document what it says-- especially if that is on top of a mountain, in the middle of the forest, or even in the water.

Your love journey is so rad, so let's capture it.

read on, my friend.

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.

Our proposal

Our proposal

- hang loose + travel often

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.

How long is an adventure elopement?

How long is an adventure elopement?

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!

How much hiking will we do?

How much hiking will we do?

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.

Can i bring my friends and family?

Can i bring my friends and family?

OF COURSE! This is YOUR day. If you have loved ones that you want surrounding you, bring them! The more the merrier.

Can I bring my dog?

Can I bring my dog?

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!

What about "bad" weather?

What about "bad" weather?

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.

Do I get a print release?

Do I get a print release?

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.

What is your travel schedule?

What is your travel schedule?

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.

What if I'm not on your travel schedule?

What if I'm not on your travel schedule?

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.

What is it like to have a session with you?

What is it like to have a session with you?

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.

Do I have to have mountains, or can we do water?

Do I have to have mountains, or can we do water?

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!

What do you charge for a destination elopement?

What do you charge for a destination elopement?

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.

What is the difference between an adventure elopement and a traditional elopement?

What is the difference between an adventure elopement and a traditional elopement?

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.

Woah, I think I am in the wrong spot. I need a traditional elopement.

Woah, I think I am in the wrong spot. I need a traditional elopement.

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.

I am actually looking for a larger wedding.

I am actually looking for a larger wedding.

Right on! We have plenty of wedding packages both with us, or with our associates. You can check out wedding photography + videography here.
