If you made it to this page, chances are that you are looking for a photographer for your Adirondack Mountain Wedding or Elopement in Upstate New York.
I am so excited to meet you and hear more about your love story and why you want to get married in the Adirondacks. Because, gosh, you are making a great decision. Picture lakes, secret ponds, and epic views- we have it all!
I like to use Merriam Webster's second definition of "Adventure":
Adventure (noun): An exciting or remarkable experience.
Whether you want to get up at 2AM and hike one of the 46 high peaks and exchange vows at sunrise, take a boat to a private island, or ski down a mountain in your wedding clothes, I'm game! And if you want to get married in Lake Placid, cuddle up next to a fire with a local beer or glass of champagne, and enjoy a dinner prepared by a private chef, that sounds just as perfect!
I love helping couples plan their adventurous weddings in the mountains! This is your wedding day and you deserve it to be one of your best adventures together. As a licensed NY State Hiking Guide, I guarantee that I will show you some of the most amazing locations in the Adirondacks to get married!

All Adirondack Wedding and Elopement Packages Include:
1. Planning Assistance
Helping you plan your perfect Adirondack wedding experience is part of the fun! Once you book with me, I am yours to toss all your ideas at! In addition to all of my local knowledge, I have a list of vendors to recommend to you for your wedding day. Want to know where to stay in the Adirondacks or where you could get a "from above" experience? I can direct you to some local companies who do hot air balloon rides, sea plane rides, and heli-experiences!
I'm also here to answer any questions you might have about the legalities of getting married in Upstate New York- it can be confusing figuring out everything you need and when to do what.
2. Wedding Timeline Creation
About a month before your intimate wedding or elopement, I will send out a detailed wedding questionnaire to make sure we are both on the same page as to what to expect. We will also go over any Plan B options. This is when I begin to help you craft a timeline to make sure that you will have a relaxed day (no rushing so that you can stay 100% present and in the moment!). We will also go over the best times for the ceremony and photos (golden hour, baby!)
About a week before your wedding, we will hop on the phone again to touch base and finalize your details.
3. Unlimited Access To Me & My Expertise
Whether it's by text, email, or messenger, you can reach out to me any time! I love knowing what you are thinking about when it comes to your wedding day. Whether its a really big decision such as changing your venue or how to pack for your winter hiking elopement (fleece leggings!), I love to know what's going on and how I can help. I'm here to lend a listening ear and advice as needed.
4. Adventure Buddy With All The Things!
Baby wipes, ibuprofen, hair pins, snacks and treats, first aid kit...I bring it all with me wherever I go. I like to be prepared for anything that you may need on the day of your wedding. I've had grooms whose buttons popped off who needed a safety pin, mothers who needed a quick sugar boost, and bridal parties who had forgotten all of the hair pins. Whatever it is that you need, I probably have it!
And if you were hoping for a buddy who knows too many bad puns, some fun nature facts, and loves to nerd out about backpacking and cycling gear, you are in luck! Because you get that too.
5. Sneak Peek Within 24 Hours
You read that correctly! You will get your first sneak peek within 24 hours of your wedding or elopement. Because nobody likes waiting to see photos from their epic, joyful day!
Where to Elope in the Adirondacks
There is no shortage of amazing places to elope or get married in the Adirondacks. Since I call the Adirondacks home, I know some of the most amazing and secluded locations in the Adirondack park. When you book with me, you get access to a custom location guide created just for you.
If you are looking for more intimate wedding venues for your elopement or small destination wedding, this post has some of my favorite venues around Upstate NY where you can stay on property and have a superb guest experience.
Overall, if you are looking to have an adventurous wedding in the Adirondacks, I recommend getting married in Lake Placid, Keene, Inlet, North Creek, Old Forge, Lake George, or Tupper Lake.
A Bit About Me
This is me, Molly. And my dog Arlo!
When I'm not photographing elopements or family stories, I am outdoors exploring and taking care of our world! In the winter, I can be found cross country skiing in the back country or cruising down the mountains on either my skis or snowboard. All year long, I can be found hiking in the mountains because that's where I feel like I can breathe.
I love the outdoors, and I know you do to. And because of this, you want to get married outside surrounded by the landscapes you love!
I know, because I was there too. Whether you want to have your wedding in the Adirondacks, Catskills, White Mountains, Berkshires, or up in Maine, I am there for you and have probably hiked a good bit of the trails too!
