5 easy steps to your dream elopement

how it works

s.o.s. I don't know where to begin

Whether the idea of eloping is new to you, or you've always known it was the right choice, you and your partner have some decisions to make!

...There's a possibility you don't know what all of those decisions are yet.

That's perfectly fine; I've got you.

Elopements have some similarities to big, traditional weddings, but for the most part, you can do whatever you like!

And you? You're ahead of the game.

Because starting here, with me, is a very good place to start. 

you're absolutely in the right place

I'll perfect your images, design your album, and send you all the feels.

Within a week, you'll have sneak peeks in your hands (...inbox) to share your day with everyone. Soon after that, your entire, beautiful gallery and album design will be delivered.

Once the album is approved, it'll be hand-made with love in a sustainable, eco-friendly, wicked awesome print lab, then shipped to you so you can relive and share the whole story of your incredible elopement day.

05. experience the rush all over again. and again, and again...

f i v e

Hell. Yes.

You'll celebrate your elopement day with the love of your life!! Just like you imagined.

And because you're choosing to elope, you don't have to worry about a thing! All you have to do is show up, be present, and leave the rest to me. I'll document everything so you can relive it all later and share with whomever you want. 

04. you'll get married!!

f o u r

From the most mind-blowing locations, to a custom timeline, to some rad vendors to help pull it off--your elopement is going to be tailor-made. Just for you.

I spend an excessive amount of time poring over maps; scouting locations; and obsessing over the positions of the sun, moon, and milky way. If you have no idea where you want to elope, don't stress. I've got you covered. I can help with all the logistics, and you have the benefit of getting a photographer's perspective. I know what looks good, and when.

03. We'll plan the perfect elopement for you and your partner

t h r e e

I'll send you all the booking info to make things official. We just need a date and a general location--If you aren't sure about either of those, send me an email anyway! Part of my job is helping couples narrow that down.

Once we have a signed contract and retainer, I'm all yours!

For keeps. 

02. save your date

info + prices

A feisty, adventurous, introverted , queer elopement photographer in the PNW (Washington is my home base).

I photograph elopements for LGBTQ+ couples (and all love). I exist for couples who just want to get married without your shenanigans, great-aunt Mary. Enough already.

Working with me, you'll get in-depth location scouting (for places like the Mt. Baker Wilderness and National Forest, Olympic National Park, Mt. Rainier, the North Cascades, and all manner of hidden gems), vendor recs, personalized timeline building, and a gorgeous gallery of rad photos that you'll still be stoked about in 50 years' time.

Photography is my love language--and I can't wait to show you just how lovely you are.

hello!

I'm Rachel

Inclusivity and safety

staying safe, staying happy, staying away from the bullshit

It's definitely not lost on me that this country is...troubled.

Some people in this gorgeous state of mind just can't handle being an ally to the LGBTQ+ community, the Black community, to any humans who aren't straight, white, neurotypical, able-bodied, and Christian. Their minds and hearts aren't open.

Mine totally are though, so I've got you.

The very last thing you should ever be thinking about on your elopement day is, "Are we safe? Are we ok?" I do that for you, ahead of time, because I don't want you worrying about it at all. Every vendor I recommend has been vetted up to their eyeballs, every location has been scouted. I've been told not to "put shit like this" on my website, but...it's my website.

And I know my people. (It's you! You're my people. And I am yours.)

Let's be each other's people
