Whether you are kissing in the woods, exchanging vows on a mountaintop, or getting married in your backyard, I'm here to get that perfect shot to hang on your wall!

Wedding and Elopement Photography
All Wedding and Elopement Packages Include:
1. Planning Assistance
Helping you plan your perfect 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 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- it can be confusing figuring out everything you need and when to do what.
2. Wedding Timeline Creation
About a month before your wedding, 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!
Courthouse Weddings and Adventure Elopements
I like to use Merriam Webster's second definition of "Adventure":
Adventure (noun): An exciting or remarkable experience.
Maybe everybody is telling you to have a big wedding, but it doesn't feel right.
I Get It
After scrapping plans for a big to-do, my husband and I got married at the Albany courthouse. And then we followed that up with a symbolic ceremony in the Austrian Alps with our immediate family.
And we loved every minute of our wedding experience.
The best part about getting married at the courthouse or embarking on an adventure elopement is that you have the entire day to celebrate in the way that speaks to you two!
Want to grab some breakfast afterwards at that funky diner around the corner after your morning courthouse wedding? Spend the day kayaking on a secluded lake in the Adirondacks, hiking trails that are only accessibly by water? Or maybe you want to change into your kit, hop on your bike, and feel the breeze as you take a ride together? Take it from me, making it simple and planning the day around what you love is where it's at.
Are you thinking of eloping in Upstate NY?
Check out this Upstate NY Elopement Guide which is sure to help you on your planning journey.
While you would love to elope, you really want to celebrate with your
nearest and dearest.
This package is for you! You want to get married, but you still want to focus on your love and having fun. Maybe you are getting married in your aunt's backyard or on top of a mountain, and you just really don't want to be bothered with the production of having a capital "W" Wedding. I get it and I'm here for it. With this package, the focus is on your relationship with those in attendance. And yes, there are a few mountains that you don't have to hike up, should that be your desire!
Pricing starts at $1,500.
Your day is so important and I want to make sure to capture all the little details and moments that will make up your memories when you look back 50 years later. Want to get ready separately and have a first look? Great! Or maybe you want to get ready together and walk down the aisle as the unit you already are! Whether it's the ceremony, private moments of you as a couple, or all the fun you are having as a group, I'll make sure to document your day lovingly and unobtrusively.
Do you want the best of both worlds- both an elopement and a chance to celebrate with your family and friends? Have both! It's an excellent option for people who may be a bit shy when it comes to public declarations of their love or for those who want to have an adventurous session as newlyweds but don't want to miss out on the party. Contact me for a custom two-day package. Imagine this: exchanging your vows in private the day before and having a ceremony or party the next day. Win-win!
For Lovers Getting Married
Fill out the contact form below to receive your pricing guide and to schedule your free consultation call.
You can expect a response back from me within 24 hours.
If you do not hear back from me within 48 hours, I may be somewhere on a mountain with limited service. Please feel free to send me an email at email@example.com. I am excited to plan your next adventure!
Working with me, you don't have to hike the tallest peak and endure a suffer-fest getting there, but we totally can!
You do have to promise me though that you are committed to making your experience one worth remembering.
Trust me, once you decide to plan the day you want rather than the one you think you should have, you won't look back! Take it from the many couples I've worked with. Once they pivoted to having a more intimate affair, I received feed back such as:
"I'm actually excited for my wedding now!"
"This is so much better than what we had planned originally!"
"I was so excited for the honeymoon...deciding to get married in the way we would have spent our honeymoon was the best decision we made."
I adore courthouse weddings, intimate weddings, and elopements and would love to document your day!
Pricing starts at $750, with a typical investment of $2,250.
My goal is always to tell the story of your day. It's your WEDDING DAY after all! Whether you elope just you two or surround yourself with your closest family and friends, your adventure deserves to be documented in full.
Working with me, we will design a timeline that includes getting ready, travel to your elopement location, your ceremony, and pictures on or around your location afterwards. Especially because it's an elopement, the story of your day is especially important and meaningful.
Take it from someone who knows.
