Your love story is unique (and a little wild).
Your wedding should be too.

You'd rather be surrounded by mountains, watching the sun set, not stuck in a ballroom.

That's why you deserve a different wedding day.
One that's a little wild,
just like you.

Learn How

I'm Cara

I'm your adventure wedding and elopement photographer, based in Eugene, Oregon.

My favorite days are spent hiking with fellow adventurers on their weddings days, sharing summit beers and laughs, and freaking out over an epic view.

I believe with all of my soul that you deserve to have a wedding day that looks like you - that celebrates what you and your partner love to do, instead of trying to fit into a box in which you don't belong.

I'm here to help you create a completely unique, completely AMAZING elopement day. Every step of the way.

I'm inspired by...

- National Geographic
- The architecture of nature
- Sleeping under a star filled sky
- The spirit of exploration

+ More  than a photographer

+ More than a wedding planner

Just think of me as your wedding wing-woman and adventure enabler ;)

Why Elope?

Here's the thing: Big weddings can steamroll a couple faster than you can say "répondez s'il vous plaît." All of the customs, etiquette, and expenses add up to a day that's stressful and overwhelming, and leaves most couples looking forward to when it will all be OVER.

Take it from someone who has been there- it's not a fun way to celebrate your marriage. 
Elopements are the crazy idea that your wedding day SHOULD be FUN from start to finish and with no stress in between.
In the words of a drunk, shirtless guest at MY wedding, "THERE ARE NO RULES!!"
(There *were* rules, Derek.)

If you want to have family and friends (or Derek) celebrate with you, you GOT it. Want to read your vows privately to your partner, with no one else around? You CAN. 

I'm passionate about showing you how fulfilling it is to create a day that is uniquely yours. Eloping is magical, and I can't WAIT to show you what your day can be!

Cara followed my best friend & I into the Oregon wilderness, SUPER excitedly & ready for a new adventure. My partner & I aren’t the mushy type, but more the sweaty, arduous climb, backpacking type & Cara made us feel SO comfortable being affectionate in front of the camera, so that we can always reflect in visual form on what we have with each other. We’ll value the experience and product of working with Cara, for forever.
