A surprise wedding proposal from Nick at one of their favorite breweries (after they had just put an offer in on their now first home!), lead up to their Main Street Abbey wedding. They had a rainy wedding day, but they didn’t let the gloomy weather affect their plans (plus, it’s an old wives tale […]

They wrote love letters to each other and read them aloud as the sun was setting behind the mountain. They laughed, cuddled and whispered secrets together. They jogged through the field, full of blissfulness. They allowed themselves to relax, enjoy the moment and soak in the time spent with one another. Those things are the […]

Northern Arizona Elopement | Published on Wandering Weddings | Northern Arizona Elopement Photographer

We jammed to 80’s music together and danced our hearts out as we caught our breath from climbing up and down the dunes, all for this California sand dune elopement at the Imperial Sand Dunes. Our location was utterly breathtaking. Every part of this sand dune elopement was absolutely incredible. The setting, weather, hard work of the […]

If you’ve seen pictures of Iceland, you know it’s an insanely beautiful place filled with lots of gorgeous waterfalls, like Latourell Falls in Portland, Oregon. Chances are, you also likely feel like it’s hard to figure out where exactly you should go while there, let alone how to plan an elopement in this gorgeous country. […]

If there’s one thing you know about Arizona, let it be this: the Northern Territory of this incredible state holds SO many hidden gems and wonders. I had such a rad time exploring this slot canyon in Page, Arizona with Becca and Jeff over the course of a few hours. It was chilly in the […]

Slot Canyon Elopement | Page, Arizona | Northern Arizona Wedding Photographer

Horseshoe Bend is one of the most iconic elopement locations in Arizona. With its gorgeous u-shaped curve and 1,000 foot drop, there isn’t a single spot at the top of the canyon that isn’t 100% epic and breathtaking. Brad and Stefani soaked in every gorgeous view, snuggling in close to one another while I snapped […]

We’ve seen the legendary Harry Potter films and have read every line of the enthralling books. But, let’s be honest; we’ve all been equally disappointed when J.K. Rowling jumps forward 19 years in the storyline following the defeat of Voldemort, to Ginny and Harry (already) married with three children of their own.  I’m here to […]

Wedding Chicks said it best: “If you have ever turned to your significant other and in all honestly said, “Run away with me.” you might have a bit of a bohemian spirit; and an old-fashioned classic wedding probably wouldn’t cut it for you.” This Princess Boho Elopement Styled Shoot was recently published on the Wedding […]

Sunday evening was spent pulling myself over steep rocks and getting covered in a film of red dirt, all for the most rad elopement at Cathedral Rock in Sedona, Arizona. I left with such a high, one that’s only caused from doing something that’s such a combination of my three favorite things: photographing, hiking and […]
