HEy! I’m Jen!

Colorado-Based Elopement Photographer

here to be the co-creator of the best damn day of your life.



not stress

The day you get married shouldn’t be about pleasing or entertaining everyone else and when you choose to elope, it’s not. Eloping gives you the chance to focus on what this day is really all about – marrying your person. And the fact that you get to do it in the most unforgettable way imaginable? It’s the icing on the most delicious cake.

so much more than just

your Elopement photographer

Relationships, above all else, are at the core of what I do. I’m a lifelong and very proud introvert and getting to know people on a deeper level is what makes me tick. Getting to know you, making sure you feel confident in your elopement journey, and helping you explore the most beautiful places in the world is honestly my favorite part of what I do.

I know how hard it is to plan an elopement, often in a place you’ve never been before. You don’t want the stress of a big wedding and yet … you find yourself … stressed.

how it all works

I’ve been planning and photographing elopements in Colorado and throughout the Wild West since 2017 and over the years I’ve perfected the art of planning dream days.

This means you get:

  • A stress free, don’t-worry-i’ve-got-you elopement experience
  • mind bogglingly beautiful locations, chosen just for you
  • custom crafted timelines that maximize your experience on your day while making sure we get the photos that tell the story well
  • stunningly beautiful, non cheesy photos that bring you right back to that moment
  • an elopement photographer and planner who truly gives a damn! I truly care about your elopement experience and want you to have the best day ever.

Why my couples choose me as their elopement photographer

There are so many awesome photographers out there who take a lot of beautiful photos – so why do my couples choose me?

A Laid back, this-is-not-a-photoshoot-vibe

I place a huge emphasis on your day feeling like the most beautiful adventure, NOT a long photoshoot. You get to experience getting married in a beautiful place and get photos that tell that will remind you of that day – forever.

Dogs Always Welcome

I am a crazy dog lady to my core. Dogs are welcomed and encouraged around here (as long as you’re ok with getting a few too many photos of your dog!). You miss 100% of the dogs you don’t pet.

LGBTQ + BIPOC Inclusive

I photograph all humans, in all their beautiful diversity. I’m here to create a safe space for you to celebrate being who you are and love who and how you love.

We Leave No trace

I’m firmly committed to leaving these beautiful places better than we found them. Getting to work in these places is a privilege and they must be protected at all costs.

“My husband and I will NEVER forget the adventure we had on our elopement day!”

what I do:

Wherever you choose to elope, I’m here to help make it your best damn day ever and take the photos that help you make sure it’s never forgotten!

how i became an elopement photographer in Colorado

From the first time I set foot in Colorado, I was obsessed. The mountains, the food, the people, the atmosphere … all of it. We came to visit whenever we could

When my fiance (now husband) and I decided on a whim to move to Colorado back in 2007, I cried tears of joy seeing those mountains on the horizon and knowing that this time we were staying for good.

Helping my couples experience the beauty of Colorado (and lots of other gorgeous places around the country too) brings me more joy than I can possibly express. I love helping people have meaningful experiences in the places that have meant to much to me.

Frequently asked questions

I hear this concern from nearly every couple I talk to which is why my approach to elopement photography leans heavily into making sure you’re having an incredible experience and focusing, largely on candid photos from your day. Don’t worry, I’ll give you some direction but this is NOT a highly posed photo shoot!

Yes! While Colorado is my home, I plan and photograph elopements throughout the Western U.S.! Some of absolute favorite spots are Washington state (especially Olympic National Park and the North Cascades), the deserts of Moab and Sedona, and the wilds of Alaska. I’m an avid traveler and travel planner and am here to help you elope wherever you want to do this thing!

The two main things are my longtime experience planning and photographing elopements and my focus on your experience on your elopement day!

I’ve been an elopement photographer since before elopements became super trendy. Over the years I’ve learned the art of crafting unforgettable, stress-free experiences for my couples and have helped them navigate any challenges that come their way. I’ve been doing this thing for a long time now and feel like I’ve seen it all – so you can rest assured that you have an expert in your corner! On your elopement day my #1 goal is making sure that you have the best damn day of your life and feel comfortable, relaxed, and truly in the moment. My goal is for this to not feel like a scary photoshoot at all!

The earlier the better, especially if your date and location are not flexible. Most of my couples book me 4-12 months before their elopement. Having said that, I can sometimes accommodate super last minute bookings (my current record is the couple that called me less than 24 ho

urs before they wanted to elope with absolutely NOTHING planned!) so please don’t hesitate to reach out!
