Intimate wedding + elopement packages

Welcome to your best damn day. Ever.

I believe
you deserve a wedding experience THAT IS PERSONAL

The wedding industry wants you to believe that there is one right way to do this thing – you have the big party, you spend all the money, you prioritize everyone’s experience but your own.

But that isn’t how it has to be. I believe in my core that the day you get married is for YOU. It should be about the two of you doing this thing in a truly special way.

If, for you, that means the big ballroom wedding – awesome!

But if you’re the type of couple that hates being the center of attention, the type that feels most grounded in nature, the type that wants to spend the day exploring beautiful places and make that really big promise to your person in a wildly different way? I’m here to help.

Meet your guide on this adventure

I’m Jen Dz. I’m here to be the co-conspirator of the best day of your life.

I began planning and photographing elopements in 2016, way back before they were trendy. See, this has never been about trends. It’s been about following my heart to help you follow yours.


If you are looking for a photographer to simply show up and photograph your day, I’m probably not the one. But if you are looking for someone to guide you through this process, help you brainstorm locations and activity ideas, and document your day in an honest way, I’d love to chat!

We will forever be grateful for Jen and all the dedication and hard work she put into making our day unbelievably unique & magical!

You get in touch

Your adventure begins when you fill out the contact form! I want to hear ALL about the two of you and what you have in mind for your elopement (and don’t worry, it’s totally ok if you have NO idea!)!

I’ll get back to you right away with my full pricing guide, sample galleries from REAL elopements, and whether or not I’m available for your date! Then we’ll set up a time to chat.


No-strings-attached consultation

We’ll hope on the phone or on Zoom so we can get to know each other, meet each other’s dogs, and brainstorm some ideas for your day! I’ll answer allllllllll of your questions about eloping and by the end of the call you’ll feel a whole lot better about this whole thing! If it’s a match made in heaven, we’ll get you booked!

Note: I believe it’s super important that we are a good fit which is why this step is required! You deserve a photographer you really vibe with – whether that’s me or not!


We plan this thing together!

This is where the fun begins! I’ll help you choose your dream location (from finding the perfect state to picking exact gorgeous spot), come up with activity ideas, navigate logistics, recommend other vendors, and so much more.

I realize this sounds pretty intimidating but trust me when I say that I have a tried and true process and almost 10 years of experience of planning these things and I know how to do it right!


You have the best damn day ever.

My approach to your elopement day is a little different in that I don’t view photos as the priority. My biggest goal for you? It’s that you have an incredible adventure with your person in a beautiful place – and for your beautiful photos to tell that story well.

I take a largely documentary approach to elopement photography which means that I don’t put you in awkward poses. My goal is to capture you being you on the best day of your life (but don’t worry, I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to help you do that!)


You get to relive it all. Forever.

Apprxoximately a month after your elopement you will receive a gallery full of edited, high-resolution photos that are yours to use however you want. You’re probably going to cry (but like, GOOD cry. I promise!).

An adventure, not a photoshoot.

It’s probably a pretty unpopular thing for a photographer to say but if there is one thing you should know about me and my philosophy on elopements it’s this:

Your elopement is not a photoshoot.

Of course I’ll be there taking all kinds of epic photos but if what you remember from the day is being in front of the camera, I will not have felt like I did my job.

This is an experience first. Always.

What you get when we work together:

expert level elopement planning and guidance

I’ve been planning and photographing elopements and intimate weddings for almost a decade now and along the way I’ve learned a thing of two about the art of crafting and incredible experience for my couples. I’ve successfully dealt with just about everything that can come up when you’re planning an elopement in nature – from bad weather to wildfires to road closures, I’ve got you covered! In the elopement world experience is everything – trust me when I say I’ve done this a few times! 😉

I’m here to take the leg work out of planning your day! All elopement packages include everything you need to have a stress free experience.

This includes:

  • Hand-picked locations (from as macro as “this state” to as micro as “this trail” or “that lake”) based on the views and experiences you want to have
  • Elopement-friendly and LGBTQ affirming vendor recommendations so you can put together your dream team
  • Activity ideas and logistical help to make your day unfogettable
  • A custom crafted timeline to maximize you having an awesome day and getting that glorious light for photos!
  • Permit assitance
  • Lodging recommendations
  • Unlimited planning consultations and assistance! I’m here to help you every step of the way.
  • NO CHEESY POSES HERE. This is all about capturing the two of you as you actually are and the story of the day you had together. My work is based heavily on two things: candid moments and stunning landscapes.
  • Edited high resolution photos in an online gallery with unlimited downloads – these are your photos! Use them however you’d like!
  • Complimentary album design, crafted by me, just for you

(*other than the surprise of how easy and epic this whole thing was!)

My travel to your location is included with no additional travel fees and I arrange all of my own travel. We’ll figure out your perfect spot and I’ll meet you there (after gushing for months about how excited we are, obvs!).

Molly + Brad

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

We had to cancel our wedding twice in 2020 due to COVID. 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.

Stefanie + Danny

My husband and I will NEVER forget the adventure we had on our wedding day. We will forever be grateful for Jen and all the dedication and hard work she put into making our day unbelievably unique and magical!

Our elopement with Jen was absolutely amazing from start to finish! We decided we were going to get married 3 weeks before our date because one of our pups was diagnosed with cancer and we knew we wanted him, and our other dog, with us on our special day. We reached out to Jen and she was SUPER responsive. We started the planning process right away! Jen made the picture taking process natural and comfortable. As a fellow dog lover, Jen was patient with our pups and made an outstanding effort to get their attention from behind the camera so our photos would look awesome!

Sam + Jesse

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!

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. She was very fun to talk to and she made sure we were just enjoying ourselves and focusing on each other during the whole elopement experience. She had such a positive attitude and contagious smiley energy that made the experience smooth and delightful. Not only did we have a blast, but Jen also captured these precious moments in the perfect, most movie-magical way and we will cherish them forever.
