What’s LNT?

We'll talk about how you want your day to look during your consultation, and I can estimate which package option will suit you best. Once you're booked, I'll send you detailed timelines for each option so you can see exactly what the difference is.  From there, you can choose what you like best or request adjustments.

Absolutely! I have photographed traditional weddings for over 7 years- and I love them! I'm excited to chat with you about what your perfect day looks like to YOU.

YES. I am humbled to document love stories of every type. I will not recommend vendors that have anti-equality policies.

I’m always happy to create a custom package for weddings designed this way.

I’ll send you a sneak peak within 24 hours of your wedding so you can share with family and friends right away! The full gallery will be delivered to you within 4 weeks. Once you book, you’ll receive specific dates to put on your calendar.

LNT stands for “Leave No Trace” which describes the ethical way to recreate in the outdoors. It’s up to everyone to protect our parks and public lands and your adventure elopement is required to follow this principle at all times. This means we won’t go into closed areas or off trail where not allowed, and we won’t use things like plastic confetti which can harm the environment. As your photographer, I’ll secure all of the needed permits (if applicable) and specific LNT guidelines for the area you choose to access.

To be fair to other couples, I’m not able to hold your date without a retainer and signed contract.

That and more! Check out my blog for free resources.

I love the combination of small ceremonies and elopement intimacy and I’m happy to help you plan for including guests. I’m not the boss of your wedding, but I have found that intimate weddings have a sweet spot of up to 25 guests.

Elopements can be planned in as little as a few weeks and as far out as 6 months to a year!

Secure your date with a signed contract and flat rate retainer of $1000. As we discuss locations and how your day will look, you'll then choose your coverage option and final package price. The remainder of your package price is due 30 days before your wedding day.

Should state or federal restrictions prevent your elopement from taking place, we’ll work together to postpone to a future date and your retainer will be transferred to the new date. You won’t incur any fees if this happens- we’re in this together!

I retain the copyright but you are granted a personal print release, which means you can make prints anywhere you like. Copyright is a legal designation that is often misunderstood- if you have privacy or other concerns please let me know! I don’t give RAW images to clients- only perfectly polished and finished images! You deserve nothing less.
