how to elope
- the complete guide -

A day with no limits

As your elopement photographer, I totally get that this part of the planning process is all about letting your imagination go wild and envisioning the most enjoyable day for the two of you, that would celebrate your relationship in the most authentic way. Forget about any restrictions for a moment and just dream big—that’s where you’ll find what speaks most to you and makes you feel alive. 

my approach:









Working with your elopement photographer

A major part of my process as your elopement photographer, is working with you to plan every single moment of your day! I’m literally here to help you with everything and anything. Need help picking out a location? I’ll create a custom guide for you. Picking out your style + attire? I’ll bombard you with links. Hiring vendors? I have the dream team list! What to pack + bring? I’ll mail you my Exclusive Elopement Guide + Checklist. Need anything else? I got you!

When it comes to getting in front of the camera, I will give you all the direction and guidance. I will capture you in your element where true love and emotions come out. The best photos are always the ones where you’re caught in the moment and you don’t realize I’m even there taking the photo. Consider me a documentarian, where I’m capturing everything surrounding your day. My style is STORYTELLING. Your photos will tell the story of every detail you experienced and make you relive the moments. 
As a little something extra, I take a moment of each elopement to capture a polaroid to gift you at the end of the day. On our wedding day, my best friend captured some polaroid photos of our elopement and they have become some of my most cherished wedding photos. This candid picture snaps a moment of time for you to have forever and I can’t wait to gift you yours.

Facetime Call

Lets chat. We will talk over all the things surrounding your day and answer any questions you might have. 

Official Booking

Lock in your date and location. We will review specifics and I’ll send over a contract and invoice for 50% of your total fee. Payment plans are totally an option for working around budgets.


This comprehensive questionnaire is all about you. Get as creative and descriptive as you can. The more information you give me, the better I can curate your experience.

What if we need to reschedule? What happens if the weather is bad?

I’m always down to reschedule if need be, so just keep me posted and we will make it happen. If you cancel your session, I’ll be super sad but I totally understand! I have a non refundable retainer fee so you won’t be receiving that portion back, but if you’ve paid more, than I will pay you back for that portion.

If the weather is bad, I’m still here for it! I’m born and raised in Oregon, so no weather really scares me. Some rainy days can be so much fun during shoots and elopements. We can try to reschedule if that’s your wish, but we will communicate about all that together!

Do you have payment plans?

Yesss!!!! I think payment plans are amazing, and I’m super open to working something out that works best for ya’ll!

Do you help in the planning process?

Ya’ll. Acts of service is my #1 love language. I want to be as much of a resource to ya’ll for help as you want. Whether that’s helping pick a location for your shoot/elopement, or even finding your airbnb, hair and makeup artists, outfits to wear…I’m here to help in anyway!

How do travel expenses work?

If I’m traveling to you for your shoot/elopement, then I will factor all the travel expenses (flight, rental car, accommodations…) into your total cost so you won’t have to worry about hidden fees or more payments later on.

How will I receive my photos, how many + how long does it take?

All galleries are delivered through email to an online gallery where you can download, print, save favorites and so much more. Depending on the session/wedding, it could be anywhere from 6-12 weeks, and anywhere from 100-1000+ photos.

Where are you based? Do you travel to shoots around the world? 

I am based out of Eugene, Oregon. I do travel! I love it so much! But honestly so many couples are dying to explore the Pacific Northwest, and I love taking people to my favorite spots and making an adventure out of it!

Will you photoshop us?

Nope! I do not photoshop my photos unless I neeeeeeed to, but that’s generally to get something out of the photo, like random people walking around behind your photos or something like that.

Can I have the raw images or unedited images?

I do not give my RAW images. This is where my style + art come alive in the photos, and I will deliver you the high resolution edited images. Trust me, you don’t want the RAWS!

What do we wear to our session?

Oh I GOT YOU! I will help you 1000% with outfits and whatnot, I have a “what to wear” guide i’ll send you to help you prep for your shoot. But at the end of the day, I truly recommend you to dress how you always dress, and what makes you feel most beautiful!
