I'm here to tell you that your elopement ISN'T MEANT TO BE STRESSFUL. HELLO, THAT'S WHY YOU'RE ELOPING! You deserve to feel nothing but pure joy and excitement when thinking of your elopement day. You should be dreaming of your elopement day, not dreading it! You deserve to have the best elopement ever!

Let's be real for a quick moment. You decided to elope for a few reasons, and one of them is probably that you didn't want to plan a big traditional wedding because it's freaking overwhelming and stressful. But you're probably finding yourself overwhelmed with trying to figure out where to elope, if you need permits, what time of the day is best and all the things.

you deserve the elopement of your wildest dreams!

YOUR LOVE STORY IS UNIQUE, JUST LIKE YOU.

NOBODY'S ELOPEMENT IS THE SAME.

"We’ve had to reschedule the wedding twice and she has been overly gracious about it! She actually did our engagement session the day our original wedding was planned for, and helped make the day so special and magical. In our initial communication with Samantha before we hired her, she was responsive, helpful, and so friendly and kind! During our engagement session she was AMAZING! Neither my fiancé or myself have ever had professional photos taken, and we were nervous and feeling awkward, but her guidance and natural abilities to direct us made it so fun and easy. She also found a wonderful location for the photos at an adorable Christmas tree farm. She got the photos back to us quickly (even though she was out of town for awhile right after!) and they absolutely blew us away. The value she provides far exceeds the modest price she charges. Through the past year Samantha has been professional and understanding, and has become a real friend."

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.

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!
