Elopement Packages are about more than your wedding.

Elopement Packages offer a life-changing experience.

By letting us guide you in eloping and choose the perfect elopement packages, you’ll exchange—

stress for peace

doubt for confidence

exhaustion for rest

complications for simplicity

pressure for freedom

and get to do it in an ah-mazing way with these elopement packages.

Choosing elopement packages is a life-changing experience. That’s a big claim, we know. But we’ve seen it be true for couple after couple, and there are a few reasons why:

  1. Elopements align with your health needs and allow you to opt on the side of self-care in a bigger than life way.
  2. Elopements give you personal confidence in your decision making and reinforce your belief in yourself and your tight-knit community.
  3. Elopements show you how to rest while planning the adventure (physical and metaphorical) of a lifetime.
  4. Elopements allow your day and lifestyle to be filled with things that are truly meaningful to you, your partner, and your joint values.
  5. Elopements deliver freedom of mind and body in the form of overwhelming peace on your wedding day.

You got some q’s about us and our elopement packages, huh?

+ YOU’RE ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHERS, PLANNERS, AND OFFICIANTS. HOW DOES THAT WORK?

We are photographers first, but we offer MAJOR planning assistance to our couples. We work side by side in helping you plan your perfect elopement location and give you all the questions to consider you might not even know existed. You’re booking more than people with cameras. You are booking a wealth of elopement wisdom, tips, tricks, and insights. Consider us your elopement encyclopedia. And if we don’t know the answer, we have all the resources to find it. In fact, the majority of hours we spend working on your elopement is coordination and research alongside you to help educate and provide creative ideas that you really jive with to make your day special. As far as being officiants, that means Dan is legally ordained and can officiate your ceremony so you don’t have to hire another vendor. We cover a lot of bases! And we only offer these services as a package for our couples, because you deserve the best of us. 🙂

+ OKAY, THESE PICTURES ARE COOL… AND ELOPING SOUNDS COOL… BUT REALLY, WHAT DOES ELOPING MEAN? IT IS FOR ME?

We get asked this question so much we actually wrote a blog on it but in short, an elopement is a meaningful, authentic, and creative wedding experience designed by couples looking to exist purely as themselves on their wedding day without stress and with intimacy and adventure. So if you’re a bit adventurous, value relationality, and love removing stressors from your life, then we say an elopement is perfect for you. A lot of couples doubt at first if they are making the right decision because of family or societal pressure, but we have heard from our couples time and time again, “We would not change one detail about our day. We are going to remember this day forever!” There are so many advantages to having an adventurous elopement! Don’t believe us? We’d love to chat with you to see if eloping is the right decision for you!

+ IS THERE A DIFFERENCE IN AN ELOPEMENT AND “INTIMATE WEDDING?"

A lot of folks use these terms interchangeably, but we determine the difference by guest count. They should look radically similar in mood and timeline, but we consider any wedding with 11-25 guests an “intimate wedding” and weddings with the 1-10 people an elopement. We love to capture both types of weddings!!

+ ELOPEMENT DAYS SOUND BUSY. ISN’T IS JUST AS MUCH PLANNING (AND STRESS) AS A “NORMAL WEDDING?”

Oh, girl. That’s a big no. The truth is that elopements are wildly simpler. Even the most adventurous elopement with all the bells and whistles typically costs less than the average American wedding, coming in at around $33,000. So it’s financially freeing!! To add to that, you have to hire way less vendors (depending on the type of day you create). The bare-bones of what you need for an elopement day is photographers, a location, wedding attire, and legal paperwork. We recommend a hair and makeup artist, a floral designer, and some other vendors to really personalize your day, but there is generally wayyyyy less to plan which equals wayyyyyy less stress.

+ WHAT’S A TYPICAL ELOPEMENT TIMELINE LIKE?

We like to think there are no typical elopement timelines, as each one is crafted specifically for you, your interests, and your vision, but there is a general process. First things first, we determine if you are exchanging your vows at sunrise or sunset. These are the dreamiest times of day to capture amazing photos, and your ceremony is the pinnacle of your day! So once we determine that and the ceremony’s location we fill the rest of your time with an amazing meal, a stunning hike, possibly something extra adventurous like a nice helicopter ride or ice-climbing, some celebration, and a bit of free time so you have room to be spontaneous on your wedding day! A traditional wedding day is documented from start to finish, and your day deserves that same documentation. Your wedding day is no less because it is an elopement.

+ WE’RE REALLY SHY (AND POSSIBLY ANXIOUS HAHA) AND KINDA HATE HAVING OUR PHOTOS TAKEN. CAN YOU GUYS STILL MAKE OUR PHOTOS GORGEOUS?

Ya know, we get this a lot!! A lot of eloping couples are doing so because they are different than the average social butterfly, me monster (ask me what that is if you don’t know lol), and party goer. You may really love chilling with only a few people you know super well and that you can trust. We become some of those people as we get to know you and your story at a speed you are comfortable with so your final photos are genuine and authentic. We do less of, “okay, stand over there! Look here! Turn slightly! and smile!!” and do more like, “girlllllll that spot looks amaze-balls! Y’all wanna go dance on top of it while I sing to you?!” (no, really I absolutely sing to every ONE of our couples). Your elopement photos will show you giggling and adventuring together as your truly are. Not the awkward, posey version of yourself.

+ SO HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I GET IN OUR ELOPEMENT GALLERY?

While you are booking either a half day or a full day of photography coverage, we are not photographing your every move. That would be a little weird, right? Lol so we document cool moments throughout your day like hiking up, exploring, exchanging vows, and snuggling up together. Every elopement timeline is different, so your final count will vary from the next couple, but we generally say you will receive around 45 photos per hour of coverage. We are taking tonssssss of photos throughout day, and we sit down to find the most intimate, adventurous, flattering, funny, and meaningful photos to deliver to you.

+ WAIT, SO YOU’RE NOT PHOTOGRAPHING FOR THE WHOLE TIME? THANK GOODNESS, A 10 HOUR PHOTO SESSION SEEMED EXHAUSTING!

That’s right!! It would be exhausting to have a camera in your face all day. But we are spending that day doing all kinds of things like walking around, chatting, snacking, tripping on rocks (well, maybe that’s just me). We bring the camera out during each section of your timeline to document it, but we reserve a lot of photography time for when you’re exploring against a beautiful view, exchanging your vows, and sunrise or sunset. Don’t worry! Most of time you won’t even realize your day is being documented. We’re fun flies on the wall with cameras. 🙂

+ HOW QUICKLY WILL WE GET OUR GALLERY?

We include “speedy editing” in all of our packages! We know you need those elopement photos even sooner than couples need traditional wedding photos, because your friends and fam are DYING to know how it happened! And you’re so proud you want to show them about how meaningful your day was! So we provide a “skeleton gallery” with at least one photo from each section of your day plus a few extra from the adventure and ceremony within one week after your elopement. Your final, full gallery will be delivered to you in six weeks or less. YAY!

+ SO WHEN SHOULD WE OFFICIALLY BOOK YOU?

Elopements can be planned much quicker than a traditional wedding, but our couples usually book us 6-9 months in advance. This gives us all time to settle on a location, adventure activities for you, book travel, get any necessary permits, and create an amazingly adventurous timeline for your elopement day. Actually, you can go ahead and reach out now by clicking any black button on our site to start the conversation or that yellow button at the bottom that says “Schedule a free phone call with us!” We’d love to chat with you!

+ WHERE ARE YOU GUYS BASED

Dan & I (with our two pups, Joy and Petrie) live in North Carolina, but we spend a quarter of the year traveling back and forth to Montana to capture elopements + have a blast hanging in all the gorg scenery MT, WY, and CO have to offer. So we like to say we kinda live all over! Fun fact, I’m about 10k away from talking Dan into a tiny home on wheels, making photographing your elopements even easier and eco-friendly. 🙂

 Maybe you didn’t see your question above. That ain’t no thang.

That just means you’re literally a genius, sister friend, and we’d love to answer any genius’ questions about these elopement packages! <3
