I believe the wedding industry gets it all wrong.
When my husband and best adventure buddy and I got engaged in 2007 I remember being so excited to be married to my best friend ... but so dreading planning a wedding.
See, I never fancied myself much of a big wedding person and I never felt at home in that world. All I wanted to do was marry my person in a way that felt true to US, in a place that we loved, and with our dogs in tow (obviously)! The rest of it? It never felt like me.
If you feel like the wedding world is just not for you. If you feel like you'd rather spend the money on the things that truly matter to you. If you would rather your day feel like a reflection of your love, not everyone else's expectations ... I feel you. I AM you. And I'm here to help you have the best damn day ever.
I'm inspired by
Wild landcapes, brave humans, and the real and sometimes messy moments that make life one hell of an adventure.
Outdoor-obsessed elopement photographer for wild people in wild places.
On any given day you can find me out mountain biking, hiking with my dogs, camping with my family, trying to catch trout on a fly, traveling around in a camper van named Patricia, or parked in front of the computer scheming up adventures at home and abroad.
LOves: Dogs, hoppy beer, long flights, nights spent under the stars.
Here's a few things
I cry every time I see the northern lights
My family includes my husband, our son, 2 rescue dogs, 6 chickens, 1 snake, 1 lizard, and an embarrassing number of fish.
I'm an outdoorsy dirt bag at heart.
We travel the west in a van named Patricia. She was our Covid baby!
I'm All about
Slow days, big adventures, long dinners, longer flights, slobbery dogs, focusing on what matters
I'm NOT ABOUT
Stuffy ballrooms, other people's expectations, closed-mindedness
