Maybe you've always dreamed of a beach wedding in Hawaii or a wedding in the mountains. Or maybe it's just that you don't live in Nebraska but still want me to photograph your big day.
Whatever the reason, I am here for it! I will travel to wherever your love takes you.
Travel fees to anywhere in the United States are completely included in my pricing. You will never see additional fees for rental cars, hotels, or gas!
Some of my favorite places to go to are Hawaii (I may be biased because I used to live there), Colorado, and Washington, it's just something about the mountains!
I get it.
Being from the midwest, we believe family is one of the most important things in life and maybe you just cannot imagine a wedding without the community you grew up around.
Wherever you're at in Nebraska, I'd love to spend the day with you and your loved ones documenting the best day of your life!
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE?
If you ask Google "what does it mean to elope" they will tell you that it's for people who want to 'run away' and get married in secret.
In all actuality, that's never been the reason why my couples have chosen to elope.
My couples choose to elope because...
Eloping allowed them to make their own rules for how they celebrate the day they dedicated their lives to each other. When you choose to elope, there is no pressure to do anything. An Elopement gives you your freedom back.
An elopement meant they got to be more intentional with how they spent their day together. An elopement is simply a smaller wedding and because there are fewer people involved, you get to spend your time with those who matter most which looks different for everyone.
An elopement was more affordable than an elaborate wedding. For example, average permits for outdoor adventure elopements and small weddings are $0-500. Meanwhile, the average cost of a wedding venue alone is $12-14k. When you decide to have a small wedding, you can invest your money into an experience for you two and the ones closest to you.
Pick your favorite type of landscape. Think of the best place you have visited or somewhere you desire to go.
Decide who you want there. It could be just the two of you or you could invite your closest friends and family.
Book your vendors, you'll want to make sure you get on their schedule!
Relax, I'll guide and assist in all the planning. I'll send you hikes, AirBnb locations and ideas to choose from for your adventure!
WHAT EVEN IS AN ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT?
It is nothing more than choosing to get married in the great outdoors instead of having a traditional indoor wedding. People who opt for an adventure elopements and weddings definitely enjoy being outdoors and believe there is far more beauty outside then there ever will be indoors.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WEDDING AND AN ELOPEMENT?
There really isn't any difference. At the end of the day, you are vowing the rest of your life to someone. People classify them differently and charge differently based on the amount of people in attendance, I do not do that.
HOW MANY PHOTOS CAN WE EXPECT TO SEE?
My photos are your photos. You'll get all your photos professionally retouched and delivered in an online gallery available to share with friends and family!
I DON'T LIVE SOMEWHERE EPIC, CAN I STILL GET MARRIED SOMEWHERE ELSE?
A common misconception is that you have to get married where you live. This is not true. You can obtain a marriage license anywhere - you just have to follow that county's rules. Colorado is probably one of the most laid back states - you can even marry yourself there!
BUT WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
Nature is unpredictable and there is no sense in worrying about things that are beyond our control. I will have multiple back up plans because your safety is my utmost priority. Honestly, I think it adds another element to your adventure day wedding story!
WHAT IF WE AREN'T BIG HIKERS? DOES OUR ADVENTURE HAVE TO INCLUDE HIKING?
Absolutely not! Your wedding day or elopement should only include activities you enjoy. There are so many epic locations that don't require a hike at all!
IF WE CHOOSE THIS, DOES THAT MEAN WE CANNOT INVOLVE OUR FRIENDS/FAMILY?
Of course not! Your family and friends are more than welcome to join. My couples typically have their family and friends meet up with them at an accessible point, an Airbnb or an outdoor venue to witness their vows either before or after their adventuring!
HOW MUCH TIME DO MOST COUPLES CHOOSE TO THEIR ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT/WEDDING?
Most of my couples opt for the full day coverage. It allows the entire story of their day to be told and for all of their adventure to be captured including all the details in-between!
I KNOW I WANT TO GET MARRIED SOMEWHERE EPIC BUT HAVE NO IDEA WHERE TO START, CAN YOU HELP?
OMG OF COURSE!! I do what I do because I absolutely LOVE planing adventures. I will send you a questionnaire which will help me narrow down what vibe you are going for then I'll spend hours researching the best places for you to choose from!
