Kind Words

First off, Ariel is AWESOME, patient, kind, professional and a hardcore experienced photographer and adventurer! We are the worst when it comes to planning things, making commitments (which is why it took us 9 years to get married haha) and planning our wedding was added to the list of things we procrastinated on. Ariel helped us scout locations and plan when we had to cancel our first wedding due to COVID.

She helped us put together a day of timeline and captured all the magic along the way.

Let's talk photos. You are going to be beyond happy. Everyone I've shared them with has said they are the most beautiful wedding photos they've ever seen and that they are magazine worthy. Ariel delivered sneak peaks to us the day after our wedding!

Finally, if you are thinking of booking Ariel for multiple days, do it. We had a very small wedding, but small weddings still come with all the same time constraints and having to entertain guests. I am so thankful we had a second day to take photos just the two of us with no time constraints and no demanding guests! Just pure love and adventure.

Summary, adventure elopements with Ariel are a must!

Kind Words

I cannot say enough good things about Ariel and her talents. Her positive attitude and kindness radiate even over the phone! My husband and I found Ariel through google when planning our Alaska elopement and we submitted an inquiry through her website. She was quick to respond, during our phone consultation she was very enthusiastic and did not pressure us to make any hasty decisions. We instantly knew that Ariel was the person that we wanted to work with for planning & photographing our elopement. My husband has a spinal cord injury which often makes travel plans more challenging but Ariel helped us find the perfect location/lodging/activities to accommodate our needs/wants!

She herself has had so many experiences in every part of the country since childhood and she is very knowledgeable about things to consider in each location. Our elopement went off without a hitch since Ariel helped remind us of everything to consider and connected us with great vendors. On our wedding day Ariel went above and beyond to make sure that we didn’t have to stress and that we had our best day ever. She not only took the most beautiful photos, she also has a great style of photo editing and she takes great care in her work. We love our photos and so does everyone that we share them with!
