“Choosing Heather for our courthouse wedding was the best decision we made! She made everything so easy and stress-free, from securing our date to handling all the details like flowers and photography. The day was perfect, and the photos turned out absolutely stunning.

Notes From The stress free + stylish couples:  

“We decided to go all out and do something really fun and special to us and get married on paddle boards with just our immediate family surrounding us in kayaks. I loved how fun our wedding was and how we got to get hitched out on the beautiful water and do something untraditional. Although we missed our friends and family who could not be with us, it was such a beautiful intimate day we got to spend with our immediate families. I think our elopement helped us focus more on each other and less about all of the traditional aspects a lot of couples feel pressure to produce. We would definitely do it again; it was the best day ever.”

Notes From The Eloped: "Do Something Unconventional.”

“Heather made us feel so comfortable, and we felt confident she would do a great job. On the day of, it felt like we had a friend with us enjoying the day. The photos turned out great, and we've already gotten a ton of compliments from friends and family about how stunning they are. We love the timeless look, and are super happy we chose Heather.”

Ashley and Paul

“Heather Anderson was amazing from start to finish. Her photos have such a beautiful, authentic, and light quality to them and she seems to truly love what she does. She sent a bridal guide, and was always available to answer questions or give suggestions. When I look back at the photos of our wedding day I love that they look exactly how I remember it."

Notes From The Eloped: "Do Something Unconventional.”


“Heather is truly a gifted photographer. My husband was resistant to taking engagement photos, but she quickly put us both at ease! Heather was able to capture each special moment at our wedding and she was an absolute joy to work with.”

3 steps to your perfect day


My team and I take the time to scout out your chosen location prior to your wedding day, especially if we haven’t been there before. We’ll do our research and will put our expertise to work for you. Finding the right light in new locations is one of our favorite tasks! Keep in mind that whether we’ve been to a location ten times or it’s our first time, we always approach it with fresh eyes, creating something new for each and every couple. We can’t wait to help you pick the best ceremony location, no matter where you choose to elope.

What if you haven’t photographed at our preferred destination yet?

The location should be tailored to the time of day, look and feel you want for your wedding. Are you envisioning a short hike, cliffside ceremony or sunrise summit? It can be as profound or relaxed as you want. Where do you see yourself saying your vows, and celebrating your first moments as husband and wife? Do you picture the two of you there again, years later (or even every year), reminiscing those first blissful, spine-tingling moments?

How do we pick a location?

Whether you want a sunrise ceremony, sunset wedding or would prefer a noon rendezvous, that’s up to you! A few weeks before your wedding, we’ll help you compile the timeline. The main items on the list are travel time, getting ready, the adventure, the vows and the post-ceremony celebration. 

What does an elopement timeline look like?

Adventure elopements aren’t about running off to get married, excluding everyone in your family. Instead, it’s your way of getting married — unique, intimate and fun. You can even argue that elopements focus more on the importance of family than traditional weddings because they actually establish the foundation of your marriage as a couple. Adventure elopements are so much more about the people. So invite who you want to and make the day about you, and not about traditions that mean nothing to you. More advice, this way.

How do you include family?

Is your heart pounding with excitement already?
You can take it easy. Elopements are as simple or as sensational as you’d like.

Elopement Photography FAQs

We have a tremendous privilege to access amazing public lands that serve as the backdrop for your elopement. With that, comes the responsibility to keep that "venue" unmarked so you two can come back to the same location in 10, 20 or 50 years. We want that land to take your breath away because it looks and feels the same as the very moment you stood there and said your vows. The practices we follow through Leave No Trace serve that vision.
