Zion National Park
Zion national park has some of the most unique landscapes and SO many amazing options for elopement spots. The park feels never ending, with hikes and views all throughout, with TONS of locations I’ve scouted privately for you to say your vows. One of the greatest things about eloping is the EXPERIENCE involved in your day + Zion National Park is full of delicious restaurants, unique rock shops, helicopter tours, and anything adventurous you can think of! If you choose Zion National Park for your elopement, I have scouted spots in and around the entire park! This park will require a permit, but I’ll help with all that!
Zion National Park
Yellowstone National Park has some absolutely BEAUTIFUL spots, with wildlife all over. If wildlife is your jam, this is probably a great spot to choose! Though, I will say, it is one of the most crowded national parks I’ve ever seen (especially during summer months). Along with your photography, I assist you in the planning stages and that’s when we will get into the nitty gritty of the best times to go, best times of day to say your vows, timeline of the day and the best places to see the animals! (:
Yellowstone National Park
When you think about your dream tropical wedding, the Bahamas beaches have it all. There are so many spots to elope in the Bahamas, like Exuma, Baha Mar, Cable beach and more! Carribeans truly know how to party + if you’re ready for the party of a lifetime, this is your spot! Although the best time to go to the Bahamas is from mid December to mid April, you really can’t go wrong any time of year if you’re wanting some higher temperatures as their temperature rarely dips below 60 degrees! International elopements are much easier than most think + I even help you source local vendors if needed as part of my planning assistance for your big day!
Moab Utah is famous for it’s gorgeous red rocks and unique rock structures. You may have seen pictures of the famous Arches National Park (which is where this couple eloped) or maybe you’ve heard of Canyonlands National Park. There are so many beautiful + unique spots within such a small radius of Moab (which makes it a great location for adventurous couples always on the go!) Moab is filled with adventure tours, between red rock ATV and Jeep tours, hiking tours, stargazing, and more. You’ll see the most amazing night sky you’ll ever see because Moab is so careful about their light pollution.
Newport and providence are known for their beaches, quaint towns and of course, block island. If you want a more relaxed elopement, where your jam is sitting at a coffee shop, walking through some shops and checking out a historical town, providence would be a great spot for you! Some of the local favorites are waterplace park, watching a play at providence performing arts center, walking down Benefit Street, which is full of history or even checking out Rhode Islands state capitol! Newport is right next door with more shopping, colorful houses and beaches full of boardwalks + shopping districts.
Providence Rhode Island
Oregon is known for it’s rocky coast with big boulders jetting out of the ocean landscape. It feels like it’s a scene out of a movie with it’s moody landscapes. Not only does the coast have so many hidden gems (that I’ve scouted for you myself), but the lush greenery in Oregon is like no other. If you’re not a beach person + don’t want to hangout in the rainy forest, you may also like Oregon’s famous waterfalls in and around the Columbia river gorge area. Oregon is one of my favorite places to photograph + I can guarantee If you want to elope at a place, I’ve probably been there + can give you the inside scoop on it.
Cannon Beach OR (Oregon coast)
If you’re a true outdoors couple, then a Mt. Baker Washington Elopement may be right up your alley. Its full of dense forest that you’re able to hike and camp in. Though, you are surrounded by nothing but the great ol’ outdoors. The Mt. Baker area is full of some of the most beautiful hikes you’ve ever seen, such as picture lake (named appropriately for it’s picturesque landscape). The chain lakes loop may be another hike that you’d love to do while in this area. If you’re up for a little bit of a drive + depending on type of year you go, you may want to elope + try snow-shoeing, rafting, skiing or swimming!
Mt. Baker WA
This underrated national park is quickly gaining popularity among East coast lovers. Acadia National Park is the very first place to see the sunrise in the United States. You can see the sunrise from Cadillac Mountain, which is what drives most tourists here, along with the beautiful landscapes and amount of hiking and biking trails. You are guaranteed to be surrounded by an active crowd in Acadia, whether you end up kayaking, biking, hiking or just driving up to Cadillac Mountain. Though, if interested in eloping here, you will want to reserve your tickets to Cadillac Mountain as soon as you know, because they sell out QUICK. (especially in the summer).
There are so many places (urban and rural to elope around philly!) This spot was on the west side of philly in this historical stone-built venue called Old Mill, in Rose Valley PA. When planning an elopement in or near Philly, you can consider the art and history that is integrated throughout the city. There is also the Philadelphia Zoo + Washington square to explore! This is one of your more urban and commercialized elopement spots.
You can never go wrong with Banff National Park. The pristine blue crystal lakes in the summer will have you coming back every summer + you can ski the big three in the winter. The big three are the three mountains that surround Banff (Banff, sunshine + lake Louise). Although this is an international destination, many places in Banff do accept US dollars! Lake Louise is an immensely popular destination for elopements, for good reason. It’s serene blue waters make it look like something out of a movie (and in the winter time, you can ice skate on it!) Surrounding Banff, there are limitless options for activities to do + places to explore.
Banff National Park, Alberta Canada
Iceland is definitely a destination location for adventurous couples. Iceland is the land of fire and ice, meaning in the same country, it is full of glaciers and volcanoes (some side by side). It is also the land of light and darkness, which means during the summer, you can experience the light longer than most other places (almost 21 hours of daylight), whereas in the winter, there are only about 5 hours of daylight, similar to Alaska! This makes you more likely to see the northern lights. Iceland contains some of the most picturesque landscape from it’s waterfalls, to it’s volcanoes, craters and even glaciers. As you can imagine, the possibilities to explore are endless here.
Costa Rica has so much to offer with it’s dense rain forests + so many unique airbnbs. I already have a secret Airbnb list that I’ve been making for years for when my Costa Rica couple reaches out. During your elopement week, you can go white water rafting, ziplining through the rain forrest, hike + explore all the little Costa Rican towns.
You’ve likely seen this place in magazines, but didn’t know where it was. This is the poster place for hot air balloon rides at sunrise. It’s described to look like the moon with it’s crater like landscapes. Also, the city continues underground! There are tons of underground places to see that you wouldn’t be able to see from just stopping quickly through! Cappadocia has cave churches, houses carved into the rocks + true fairytale scenery, especially at golden hour times.. If you elope here, you definitely must take a hot air balloon at sunrise!
If you love green in landscape photography or elopement photography in general, this is your sign to go to Ireland for your elopement. This place is most likely for you if you picture saying your vows on a cliff with a beautiful ocean backdrop crashing up against the cliff behind you. if you’ve always wanted to go to see the cliffs of Moher or the Ring of Carey. There are so many sites to see + possible elopement spots, such as Blarney Castle, Wild Wicklow, Galway, County Kerry, the Aran Islands or as mentioned above the famous Cliffs of Moher.
There are so many beautiful places in the country of Patagonia, but El Chalten in Argentinan Patagonia is at the top of the list for me. I have been eyeing these mountain landscapes as backdrops for years. If anyone wants to put their faith in me for a truly magical destination location, Patagonia is your place.
Hubbard Glacier is one of the largest tidewater glaciers that Alaska has to offer, with it’s face about 400 feet tall + icebergs about 3-4 stories in height. An elopement here would be only possible by helicopter. Though, it is possible to land on top of the glacier, taste the glacier water + explore the glacier as apart of your elopement day.
Hubbard Glacier, AK
Similar to Patagonia, the Italian Dolomites are mountains that could never disappoint. Most places in the United states require 7-8 mile hikes to get to views that are not even ½ as good as these landscapes. The best part about them is that they require little to no hiking in order to experience the view. Most of the beautiful landscapes where you can say your vows are just a stone throw away from the road!
The Almafi coast is for those that are true-romantics, wine lovers and lovers of the sea. This city built onto the mountain is one of the most romantic and picturesque landscapes in the world. The way the city is built into the cliff overlooking the ocean makes it so unique. During your elopement here, I would highly recommend taking a boat tour to Positano!
The Amalfi Coast, Italy
The great thing about eloping in Tuscany is the vast amount of Italian landscape to cover during your trip there + the amount of variety it offers when coming to elopement locations. You can either elope in or near a castle, a boutique hotel, alongside the ocean, In one of the big lush parks, or in an Italian Villa (which looks straight out of Vogue magazine). The options are limitless + I’m dying to explore with you + help you tour the city!
Santorini is amongst the most popular elopement locations in Europe due to it’s romantic, adventurous vibes and breathtaking views. During your Santorini elopement, there are so many things for you to do like shop and dine in Oia, explore Immerovigli, take a boat tour or learn to sail, or even go snorkeling! The beaches are one of a kind + this may be your bucket list opportunity to cliff jump!
BUT. If you’re looking for someone who’s going to walk alongside you throughout your entire day + months leading up to it, become essentially another member of your wedding party/family and leave you feeling like you’ve made two new best friends (Arthur + I), you’ve struck a cord in us + we’re ready to take this on with you.
I’m an empath. When you feel, I feel with you. It’s hard for me not to hear a story and be right there with you in the story as you’re telling it. I cry with you. I laugh with you. (i’ll probably make you laugh by doing really stupid things behind the camera but that’s besides the point).
I don’t want to be just posing you for photos and you forget all about me after your day. I want the emotion in the photos to be so raw and authentic that you get all those same feels when looking back at your wedding album. My goal is to tell your story, not a story that’s pre-written due to irrelevant traditions. (I know- shocker. You’re sick of hearing this by now.. but it’s SO true).
Every client is valued, cared for + accepted by me. Never and I mean NEVER question where you stand with me. I’ve always made it my priority in life to make others feel welcome. Whether that be in a class where they feel they don’t fit in or in a society that’s toxic with biases that shouldn’t belong.
Just know as my client, you are valued, You are loved and you deserve your story to be told exactly as you experience it. All races, all beliefs, all genders, all sexual orientations, all cultures, all disabilities. You have a place here + someone who’s eager to take on this adventure with you.
- Looking at vans to life in + eventually take this travel thing full time on the road (where my van- lifers at!)
- Looking at what plane ticket to buy next
- Listening to acoustic music ALWAYS. I love all types of music, but the acoustic station never really stops playing in our house.
- Driving an hour to two just to go to a new coffee shop (did I mention I was an experience person?!)
- Letting my dog liv her best life + taking her to get Puppaccinos at Starbucks (yes this is a real thing + if you don't believe me check my daily Instagram snap of her getting whipped cream all over my car).
- Taking hikes + drives in the most random of places to find you your next-best secret photo location
- Making you location guides, outfit guides, and other information that keeps you worry free about your big day
- You are ready to say screw it to the traditions
- You want a day that’s purely about the two of you + crafted with intention
- You want to cater to the meaning behind the moments and not just the look of the moment.
- You want to FEEL everything once you open your album again + not just remember cheesy prompts given to you.
- You don’t just want your day surrounded around a dinner + that’s it. You believe your wedding experience can be so much more than that.
- You have a rad sense of adventure you want to live out on your day.
- You want a story to tell once your day is over
- You want to be different amongst your group of friends and family + don’t mind being the black sheep.
- You’re magnetized to the thought of travel + the idea of traveling to a new or favorite place to say your vows excites you.
Because what are photographs if you can’t associate that with an amazing feeling behind them? You’re doing this because you want the EXPERIENCE. You want to FEEL amazing on your day. You want to forget about the chaos + just do this damn thing. You want it to be about YOU, and I’m your girl that’s fully on board with that.
