Look I'm warning you right now: this is the most "dense" page on the site.

I know that most people hate walls of text, and they're ugly. But this is the good shit, and I'd rather have a dense page on my site with all the information you need than a ~pretty~ one that doesn't actually tell you anything. It's worth a read, promise.

OK. Great. As you were.

1. send me a message to get the ball rolling

Click that "I'm ready" button to send me a message.

Next, we'll schedule a quick call to get to know each other a wee bit and answer any questions that you might have. I want to hear aaallll about you and your elopement! 

(Email is cool too if you hate the phone; totally get it.)

how it works

i'M READY, let's go!

2. save your date

I'll send you all the booking info to make things official. We just need a date and a general location--I can help you narrow it down.

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

3. we'll plan the perfect elopement for you and your partner

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.

(yeah, I'm all in. I don't just sit back and watch it happen; I help make it happen!)

4. You'll get freaking married

Hell. Yes.

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

That's what it's really about, isn't it?

5. Experience the rush all over again. And again, and again...

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 to share your day with everyone. Soon after that, your whole gallery and album design will be in your inbox.

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

let's make it happen

does that sound good to you?

Nope! Most of my couples are in the PNW (and some in Wisconsin), but I'm a traveler at heart. Always have been. I'm at...16 countries now? I don't know. Let's just say: I'm good at travel, I'll fly wherever for you, and I'll help you travel better if you need tips.

I'm also an EU citizen, so I can legally work in most of Europe without visa issues.

do you only photograph wa and wi elopements?

The earlier the better. I can plan and pull off an elopement in a month, but the longer you wait, the less likely it is that I'll have your date available! Most of my couples book me 6-10 months out.

How far in advance do we need to book?

Very common question! And understandable. Part of why I have a "starting price" and not every last detail on my site: very elopement is different! It's a bespoke experience, my darlings. I chat with my couples to understand what they really need, then create a package that works for them. I'm not here to sell you a bunch of shit you don't need, ok?

What if we don't know how much time we need you for?

Technically? ...sort of. I tend to cap things around 20-25 guests. Have to draw a line somewhere, you know? Otherwise we can stray into "big wedding" territory. I'm nothing if not flexible, though. Send me a message and we'll figure something out for you.



I have more questions!

I live with my British husband, our three-legged dog, and a houseplant collection that we'll never admit is "getting out of control."

I photograph elopements for badass couples who just want to get married without your shenanigans, great-aunt Mary. Enough already.
