Destination Elopements

and Intimate Weddings

When we first started planning our own wedding, it quickly became clear to us that we wanted it to be an adventure. We loved the idea of saying our vows in a foreign landscape that we had never seen before. Somewhere that would further help the gravity of all of this to really sink in, and take hold. We chose Scotland, but really you can choose anywhere. That's the beauty of it. Have you always wanted to see the Austrian Alps, or the Dolomites? Let's do it. Or is Patagonia calling your name? What about the French countryside, or New Zealand, maybe even something closer to home? We're up for just about anything, and we can't wait to hear about your adventure.


Destination Elopement PhotographY

As elopement photographers, our goal is to help you plan and execute your true dream wedding. We'll help you find the spot to say your vows, the AirBnB or hotel to stay at the night before, and the delicious, local restaurant where you can eat lunch on your wedding day.

Then we'll take all of that time spent getting to know you and what you're really looking for from this new adventure, and use it to help us capture stunning images that show off the landscape you've chosen and the love that you have for one another. From the sweet, intimate moments together, to the stomach-clenching laughter at each other's silly jokes. Love is more than just kisses and hugs and our goal is to capture all of the things that make your relationship perfect for you.


Destination Elopement VideographY

To explain our love of video, I think it's important to first give a little background on us. In college Lisa studied Fine Art Photo + Video and Alex studied Cinematography. We met on the dating site OkCupid, and both of our profiles mentioned our interest in video. And as soon as we started dating, we were helping each other with projects for school.

So even beyond just how dang cool elopement videos can be, we've got a definite soft spot for them. Video takes all the visual beauty of your love and combines it with the actual words spoken to one another when you made your commitment to forever. You get all the sound and energy and emotion of the moments you shared in a beautiful film that you can share with everyone back home. It's the perfect way to remember how it felt to be married to your best friend, for decades to come.


What Exactly Is An Elopement?

If you look up "elope" in the dictionary, you'll probably see that it is the act of running away to get married in secret. But we're seeing that this definition doesn't really fit the modern elopement. Couples are opting to skip big, traditional weddings and plan incredible, adventurous elopements in nature. With the average wedding in the United States costing over $30,000, elopements are a way for couples to save money and really focus on what is most important: the beginning of their marriage. But not everyone can commit to getting married without their closest friends and family (we couldn't!), so we define an elopement as an intimate wedding with less than 20 guests. 


Elopement Planning

One of our favorite things about being elopement photographers + videographers is helping our couples plan their dream weddings. We are there with our couples for every step of the planning process. Each of our couples will gain access to their own “Planning Portal.” There, we work together to guide them through then entire process of planning their dream elopement or intimate wedding. To help our couples choose the perfect setting for their weddings, we create an interactive map of their chosen destination and pin it with amazing location ideas. Many elopements do not require a traditional venue, so we help our couples find Airbnbs to get ready in and help with any permits required for their ceremonies. We love empowering our couples to make their elopement exactly how they always imagined it, whether that means making breakfast together in the morning, hiking through the rainforest, sailing through the Mediterranean, climbing the steps of a temple, or watching the Northern lights dance across the sky.


Adventure Sessions

We are story tellers, and we understand that most of the time the story of your relationship requires more than one day. We offer full-day Adventure Sessions as well as 4-hour Adventure Sessions, and we love being able to spend more time with our couples exploring a beautiful new place! With an additional day, you can choose to go for a hike, spend the night camping, travel to a location that didn't fit into the elopement day, wander through quiet towns, go on a safari, explore ancient ruins, or find a natural swimming hole. Some of our couples enjoy getting back into their wedding clothes for post-elopement Adventure Sessions, while others keep it casual.
