Adventure Elopement Photographer - Jen Dz Photography

Adventure Elopement Photographer - Pricing + Info

From helping you find your epic location to planning your perfect day, I'll help you every step of the way.

Y'all, I GET it - planning an elopement can be a daunting task .... and you probably aren't eloping because you want to spend MORE time planning. Don't worry, I've got you! I'll be with you every step of the way from picking your perfect location to making sure those photos make it onto your REAL wall, not just your Facebook wall. 

As your adventure elopement photographer, I'm on your team and here to help in any way I can.

Meet your adventure elopement photographer!

Hey! I’m Jen Dz.

Since 2016 I've been helping couples elope in wild places here in Colorado and in beautiful spots across the globe.

I believe your elopement day should be easy and unforgettable, that dogs are ALWAYS welcome, that nature is the best wedding venue, and that you deserve to have the day of YOUR dreams (not the one the wedding industry says you need to have ...).

I can't wait to help you write this story.

What you get (along with bomb ass photoS) when we work together:

Location Scouting + Suggestions

From helping you choose which state (or country) to get married in to narrowing it down to the best town or trail in that place, I'm here to help you pick the perfect spot. I'm kind of obsessed with finding epic, off the beaten path, locations and I can't WAIT to take you somewhere awesome!

Timeline to maximize the awesomeness

We'll take all the things that would make your day perfect and build them into one incredible day  ... a day that will be taken slow. We'll maximize the good light for photos while making sure you have one hell of a good time! 

Help with permits, licenses, etc.

This is the really unsexy part of eloping but don't worry, I'm here to help! I'll help you navigate any necessary permits for your chosen locations. I was a lawyer (but like, a REALLY nice lawyer!) in a former life so figuring out legal stuff is kind of my jam! 

authentic, candid photos of your best day ever

Do you hate those cheesy photos that are so popular in the wedding world? ME TOO. So we're not going to take them. This is all about the two of you going on a big adventure and having kick ass photos that tell that story well. 

An Heirloom elopement album

I know the trend is just to deliver digital images and call it good but I'm not about trends. You deserve to have these memories in a way that you can enjoy them FOREVER. Albums are custom designed, bound in your choice of linen or leather, and printed on thick high-quality paper right here in the U.S.

"Jen is absolutely amazing!!

We could not have been more grateful and more in awe of the gorgeous elopement photos that she took of us. We got married in the beautiful Rocky Mountains near Independence Pass in September 2021. We got to see a gorgeous sunset and epic views above tree line, as well as the vibrant fall colors of the Aspen trees. Having grown up in Florida for most of our lives, this was an absolute DREAM to experience these amazing views on our wedding day!! Going for a hike, exploring the beautiful Colorado scenery, and laughing together while we exchanged vows on top of the world was the most memorable, epic wedding experience of a lifetime, and Jen made it all happen from the planning phase to execution. Jen was soooo easy and fun to work with. She made the whole experience low stress and she listened to our ideas and hopes for the day.  Highly recommend Jen for an epic, stress free, magical, and unforgettable elopement experience!! She is a talented, passionate photographer and an absolutely amazing human being!

"THE BEST! I would write 1000x over how much we enjoyed working with Jen. 

Before I go into the details just know that my partner and I came away from our big day both agreeing that working with Jen was the best decision we could have made, hands down. Jen came up with the best idea of them all, to have our first look out at on our spot for a sunrise photo shoot. She kept us separated from seeing one another on our ride up the mountains (genius set up by the way). For our sunrise shoot we went to the lake, into a fall forest of Aspen trees, to hiking up the mountains where we were amazed to find snow along with the breath taking views. Jen was literally our big cheerleader during the photos and made the whole thing incredibly fun and exciting! We just got all of our photos sent over last night and I'm not kidding when I say I cried happy tears because she captured everything that was magical about that morning. It was like being there all over again. Thank you Jen!!! Simply incredible!

Molly + Brad

"She is an incredible photographer and professional not to mention a TON of fun..we love her!

We called Jen to see if she could accommodate our elopement idea. Not only did she accommodate us just four weeks out but she also helped us select the most gorgeous place in the US...Telluride, Co...! She helped me with hair/make up/ flowers/ accommodations AND shot our service at SUNRISE! We spent the day on an adventure from San Sophia station to Bridal Veil AND Ophir Pass. What a rockstar! The EPIC photos say IT ALL. 

From My people .... 

As someone who wanted to elope but also REALLY wanted their family there, I totally get it! I generally work with couples having 0-40 guests at their elopement or intimate wedding. If you want to bring some elopement vibes to a day also spent with your people? I'm here for it!

Next >

Can we bring guests? What do you consider an "elopement"?

YES! Detailed elopement planning is one of the things you get when we work together! From location recommendations to coming up with a perfect, stress-free timeline, I'll be there to help every step of the way!

Next >

We have NO idea where to start! Will you help us plan? 

Oh man, all over! I love wild places with big, distinct landscapes! If I HAD to pick my favorite spots it would be the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, the south coast of Iceland, and the mountains, beaches, and forests of Washington state. And the Moab desert. And Alaska. And Kauai.

Ok fine, I can't pick.

Next >

Where are your favorite places for elopements?

Absolutely! I have experience helping couples elope all over the globe! Most of my packages include travel within the western United States and Iceland. Want to elope in another country? Get in touch for a custom quote!

Next >

Do you travel? Will you travel for our elopement?

I hear this from pretty much EVERY couple I work with! My job is to help you feel comfortable in front of the camera and that starts with making sure this day does NOT feel like one big photoshoot! Every single picture you see on this website is a REAL couple - they're not models. They were probably nervous too. Trust me, you'll be FINE!

Next >

Your couples look so comfortable. We are going to be super awkward ..... 

I generally book 6-12 months in advance and only take 20 elopements each year so the earlier you reach out the better. If you have NO idea where you want to elope, you should still reach out! I live and breathe this stuff and can help you figure it out. I have SO many ideas for you! I can sometimes squeeze in last minute elopements in the off-season (November-May).

Next >

When should we book you? How far in advance? Do we need to know our location?

I am fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (and I hope you are too!) and happy to wear a mask (just ask!). Throughout the pandemic I have worked closely with my couples to make sure everyone (and their investment!) is safe. I have a generous reschedule policy for Covid-related reasons.

Next >

What are your COVID policies? Are you vaccinated?

YES. And I'm sorry you still have to ask that in 2021.

I'm here to help awesome humans marry other awesome humans. Period.

ALL are welcome here.

We are an LGBTQ couple. Will you work with us?

Having planned and documented over 10o elopements over the years, I've learned what is important when it comes to making sure my couples have incredible, unforgettable days - that means having a laid-back day, plenty of time for the real moments to happen, and photos that tell your story well.

Colorado elopement packages begin at $5800 and vary based on total hours of coverage and the size of album included. Most popular package is $8500.

U.S. destination elopements begin at $8000 and include my travel to your location anywhere in the United States.

Iceland elopement packages begin at $8500 and include my travel to Iceland with no additional travel fees. All other international destinations are custom priced.


Our elopement was fabulous because of her. Her photos on her website are why we picked her but we ended up getting so much more. She was an instant friend to us. She was super easy and fun to be around. It was just the three of us trekking up the mountains with Champagne.  The one thing we didn't think of was ice and snow! She saved the day by bringing extra snow spikes.
We definitely want to go back! We live in Houston and Colorado was a perfect choice for us to get married. Trust me and choose Jen!!!

Real experiences

The word around the campfire ... 

COlorado Hiking Elopement

" We couldn't imagine a better experience than what we had with Jen. 

We decided to elope last year and Jen helped us with all of the details. She sent us recommendations for hikes and then continued to scout out locations to make sure they were the best options for us. Jen was prepared for anything, including coming up with suggestions and helping us hike a wedding cake up the mountain. We had so much fun hanging out with her!"

- Jennie + Rob

Iceland adventure elopement

"Jen couldn't have been the more perfect photographer for us. 

I'm not really into being in front of the camera, the center of attention, or even really into wedding/elopement stuff, but I think back to that day all the time and daydream about it and then look at Jen's pictures for the millionth time. Everything about that day was magical. Her pictures from that day are incredible and my friends and family are always blown away."
