5 reasons couples elope:

Adventure, uniqueness, location, intimitacy, and photos!!


Planning a large traditional wedding day involves a lot of people!! The stress of planning can easily become overwhelming. Eloping eliminates that stress and allows you to start your lives with an epic adventure.

All About You

Adventurous couples value experience. They want to create memories that come from the experience of being together and focusing on each other. If planning a day around colors and seating charts doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, then consider planning a day that is about hiking, exploring, watching the waves crash or whatever makes your heart happy.

Location, Location, Location

Planning an elopement is easier in a lot of ways. Each elopement is completely customized to what you want. 

You choose an epic location instead of a venue. Maybe private beach in Oregon? The golden California Coast line, Boho vibes in Joshua Tree or senic views in Southern Utah. I’m excited to help you find the perfect spot to exchange your vows.


Large weddings and celebrations can be fun but ultimatly you will be tied up with the timelines, to-do lists, guests, and hosting an event. A big wedding is a production, and it’s difficult to make space for each other when there are so many others demanding your attention.

Eloping is private, intimate, and lots of fun!! Imagine exchanging vows with the ocean at your back. Or making the redwoods your asile. Sharing your first kiss in a field of wildflowers.

Epic Photos

One of the biggest draws to eloping are the epic photos!! Finding a photographer who could not only takes pretty photos, but also captures this amazing experience with stunning backdrops.

Photos become a large part of the day when you elope. There is alot more time to take photos of the new couple instead of taking all the time for famly photos, wedding party photos, and endless details and decor.
