A Romantic October Sunset Hike for Mallory & Erick

A Romantic Sunset Hike | Mallory & Erick

As Montana elopement photographers we grasp the benefits of a little bit of alone time on your elopement day.  The best way to do this is often to break away from guests for a romantic sunset hike!

Mallory & Erick came all the way from Florida to experience Glacier National Park for their wedding with guests in tow.  They lodged in Whitefish in a traditional rustic cabin and followed that with a meaningful ceremony encased in fall foilage.

To get away from the hustle and bustle, however, we helped them plan a gorgeous drive across Glacier National Park to experience several amazing views–one of them being this gorgeous sunset hike.

Follow Mallory & Erick as they experience one of Glacier’s most infamous glacier carved valleys and romantic sunset views!

A quick quote

About our photography service:

“Des and Dan were amazing and very personable. From our very first consultation call, I knew we had made the right choice on our elopement photographer. They were extremely helpful in all the planning and it was clear they were no amateurs! They were super accommodating and managed to work in everything that we wanted in our special day.” -R+R

A Quick Word

About our photography service:

“We absolutely loved working with Destinie and Dan! Everything about our experience was great. From day one she did a great job at being our personal guide on everything we needed to know and do for our elopement. Whether it was finding good vendors, picking our location or even helping us decide on an evening hike after our ceremony!”

One mo time!

Here’s what eloping folks are saying about hiring us:


couple photos at big bend glacier national park

My husband and I tried to plan a “traditional” wedding and just couldn’t decide on what felt right. Who would we invite? What venue would we rent? Being a wedding photographer myself, I also saw the unnecessary stress that is thrown upon the bride and groom on THEIR wedding day. A day that sometimes boils down to making others impressed by the party you have. That didn’t line up with us. We longed for a ceremony that focused on us and Gods beauty, both in marriage and in nature. Des & Dan delivered exactly what we were looking for and beyond. From nailing down the details to coordinating everything (across the country, bc we’re from PA)… They made it so easy to pick the package, work out the schedule of the day and delivered the photos in exceptional time. Des had so many good ideas when the weather took a turn for the cold/windy. My husband and I would definitely recommend Des & Dan for elopements! We are SO in love with our photos!

Des & Dan helped set the foundation of a marriage with enough love to last a lifetime, whether they knew it or not!
