Why I’m Bucking the Digital Trend

A little while back I wandered into my office and found my son sitting on the floor, flipping through a book he had pulled off a shelf. It was a little photo book that my mom had made for us a few years back with pictures of my childhood. My family at Disney. Fishing in […]

5 Really Good Reasons to Elope (and one big reason NOT to)

As a photographer who specializes in elopements and itty bitty intimate weddings I’m always curious about WHY my couples made the decision to skip the big wedding and elope instead. The reasons to elope are pretty much endless but here are a few of my favorites! Before we dive in, lets talk a bit about […]

How to Make Your Elopement Feel (Extra!) Special

As a destination elopement photographer I spend a lot of time talking with my couples about planning their elopement and one of the questions I get asked the MOST is about how to make your elopement special. I hear people who KNOW eloping is the right choice for them – but they’re also a tiny […]

Martha Stewart Weddings Feature

Well, that’s pretty rad! I’m so stoked to have one of my images (and the story behind it!) featured by the folks over at Martha Stewart Weddings. I love that adventure wedding photography is becoming more and more common and that more couples are ditching the fancy weddings and doing something that speaks to them […]

Katie + John’s Seward, Alaska, Vow Renewal

When Katie and John’s kids asked why they weren’t at their wedding (answer: you weren’t born yet!) they promised them that they’d celebrate their 10 year anniversary with a vow renewal! These guys moved to Anchorage a few years ago and are probably never leaving so it only made sense that they decided to renew […]

For Photographers: How to Start Shooting Adventure Weddings

I’m in a lot of photography groups on Facebook. I LOVE connecting with and learning from other photographers. It makes this whole business (which most of us do at home in our pajamas when we’re not out shooting!) a lot less isolating. One of the questions that comes up often in these groups is how to […]

6 Tips for Planning a Perfect Iceland Elopement

Eloping in Iceland has become wildly popular in recent years and there’s a really, really good reason for it. Iceland is one of the best places for an adventurous destination elopement. With shooting geysers, vast ice fields, black sand beaches, a chance to see the northern lights, and cheap flights from all over the U.S., […]

Stephanie + Alex’s Epic Iceland Elopement

It seems like forever ago that Stephanie and Alex contacted me saying that they were eloping in Iceland and were looking for a photographer to take along for the ride. To say that I jumped at the opportunity would be an understatement! Iceland is PARADISE (for those of us who love cold climates 😉 ) […]

Alexandra & Jose’s Colorado Elopement

If there is one thing I don’t like about the wedding world its how much pressure there is to do things a certain way. Empowering people to NOT have to stick with tradition was one of the reasons I got into wedding photography. I want people to get married (or not get married!) the way […]

Nina and Brandon’s Breckenridge Elopement

A lot of elopements get planned out well in advance – Nina and Brandon’s wasn’t one of them. It was less than two weeks from when Nina contacted me about shooting her Colorado elopement to when we were standing on a rock next to a waterfall as they said their vows. They didn’t have concrete […]
