Adventurous weddings for nature lovers.

I believe that wedding days should be unique and personal- that private people should be able to have private moments, and that your wedding day should be about YOU, first and foremost.

Wild Earth Weddings offers guided elopement experiences that help you look beyond what you've been told a wedding should be. Together we will craft a day that is faithful to YOUR values and goals.

Embrace what matters to you, and leave everything else behind.

We do IT differently

Learn HOw It Works


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

From finding a kick ass location that makes your heart soar, to delivering photos that capture the connection you have with your partner, I can't wait to show you everything that a Wild Earth Wedding can be.

Let's put aside the expense and performance that has traditionally been the arena of "Big weddings."

Let's put aside that planning one can steamroll a couple faster than you can say "répondez s'il vous plaît."

How would you get married if you didn't have those expectations of what a wedding "should" be? How would you spend your day and who would you want to share that day with?

Discovering those answers is what we do. We'll also help you put it all together, from timelines to finding other vendors, and, finally, create lasting photographs and memories of your first best day ever.

Marriage has changed-
weddings should too.

I'm Cara

I live in Oregon with my husband Michael and adventure pup Atlas. I serve awesome couples like you, specializing in the Oregon Coast, Oregon and California Redwoods, Central and Northern Cascades, and the Rocky Mountains.

My favorite days are spent exploring and learning about the natural world, 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!

+ More  than a photographer

+ More than a wedding planner

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

Cara was an absolute DREAM to have as our elopement photographer! ... Cara made the planning leading up to the big day beyond stress free when our wedding day came along we felt super comfortable and like we knew Cara for years. On our wedding day, Cara kept the "stress free" theme going and allowed us to enjoy our day with one another completely. We are so in LOVE with the photos and feel like it fully captured all of the love from that day!

Words can’t even begin to express how grateful I am for Cara. We had a wonderful time roaming around dunes and goofing off. The entire experience was very special and the beautiful photos were almost an added bonus to the day! That’s not to discount the final product though. Cara has an amazing eye for reading natural light and the end photos are absolutely dreamy! Everything felt very natural and my husband and I enjoyed ourselves throughout the shoot, which is evident in the shots Cara captured. I would recommend Cara to anyone and everyone who asked for a photographer (in fact I'd probably even recommend her work to people who weren't asking for a photographer)!
