how i make your dream elopement

"She provided a trunk load of dresses of various sizes for me and took care of everything from bouquet to carrying the dress around to covering me up when I got changed. I instantly felt comfortable with her like we knew each other for years. On top of that, all her feedback and compliments really gave me the confidence boost I needed to shine. I highly recommend sam's services to anyone! Love her so much!"

what my couples are saying

What Happens If The Weather is Bad?

It just adds a little extra spice into your day ;) In all honesty, I will have back-up plans for you just in case the weather is bad! If it's not endangering anyone, you can totally just own it and get married in a downpour!

However, I will have back-up plans for you, just in case! We will totally go with the flow, and make the most out of your day!

do we have to go on a big hike?

NOPE! Your elopement can be anything you want it to be! For some couples, that looks like going on an adventurous hike! For other couples, that looks like going to the beach, going swimming, trying out some new breweries, or binge-watching Star Wars movies! 

will you help us find a location?

HECK YES!! I would be honored to help you find the perfect location that speaks to your heart. I will get to know the both of you and what you're looking for in a location, so I can present EPIC location options to you both!

what if we don't know how to pose?

IT'S OKAY! It is my DUTY to help you both feel comfortable and relaxed, while soaking in all the precious moments with the love of your life! I will guide you through EVERYTHING!!

When it comes to documenting your elopement, it's all about capturing the emotions, memories, and moments on your special day.

will you help us with permits?

YUP YUP YUP!!! I'm not just your elopement photographer, but also your very-own elopement expert and guide!! I'm here to make the whole planning process as fun and stress-free as possible!

could we include our pets?

UMMMMM YES!!!! We cannot forget about your fur babes!!  

why shouldn't we book an all-inclusive elopement package?

All-Inclusive Elopement Packages are typically not customizable. They're usually a "one size fits all" kind of experience, and you deserve more than that. Your elopement day is unique, just like your love story. You deserve a totally customized elopement experience that tells the story of your adventure with your soul-mate!

can we have family members attend?

If having your closest family members attend your elopement is a part of your dream elopement vision, then heck yes!! Elopements are anything you want it to be! There's no right or wrong way to planning your elopement - that includes inviting those closest to you!
