Handcrafted Elopement Packages Designed With You & Your Love In Mind

Because your wedding day deserves so much more than a one size fits all, cookie cutter package.

Eloping removes any expectation & stress from other people. Instead you choose what is most important to you.

Eloping is all about choices. There is no list of musts or requirements for your elopement day. You can spend the day just the two of you or invite 25 of your closest family & friends to celebrate! You can hike 8 miles to a remote mountain top or stroll down the coastline hand in hand.

Meet Your Photographer, Ariel

Full time elopement photographer & adventurer with 10+ years of experience. I've photographed over 250 weddings + elopements and still get absolutely giddy with excitement when helping fellow adventure seekers & fun-loving couples plan their experience based, intentional wedding days.

Meet Ariel

"Ariel was a DREAM to work with! She is such a go-with-the-flow / roll-with-the-punches kind of person and she goes above and beyond the call of a regular photographer!"

Layla L.

"The thought of planning a wedding (even a scaled down elopement) overwhelmed me, but Ariel's energy and excitement was contagious. I am so happy we reached out to her. She helped us put together the perfect celebration and then captured it beautifully. She is so easy and fun to work with!"

Kind Words

"Ariel was so helpful, super fun to be around and easy to work with! We contacted her with no ideas other than we wanted to hike, get married on a mountain and we wanted it to be easy.

I had no clue where to start so she talked us through multiple ideas and timelines, suggested other vendors & helped us plan out the entire day from the ground up.

Thanks to her we ended up with the most incredible experience - our day was exactly what I had hoped for & more. I am someone who feels so awkward in front of a camera but her energy and attitude made us both feel super comfortable, it was like we were just hanging out with a good friend.

Our photos turned out beautiful. We are so appreciative of the effort that Ariel put into our elopement, we could not have done it without her! 10/10 would recommend"

Answers to Your Questions

• Full Day Elopement Coverage, Sounds Crazy....

Full Day elopements are the bomb, truly. Let me ask you this, If you were having the absolute best time of your life would you want it to be over in 2 hours? Heck no, you wouldn't ever want it to end! Your elopement day isn't an endless photoshoot full of awkward poses it's an intimate day that celebrates you & your partners love for each other. While I do offer smaller elopement packages with just a few hours of coverage I truly believe the magic happens when we design a full day experience. You deserve to have a day that you can relax and enjoy, a day that doesn't feel rushed. Let's plan an epic day filled with activities that embrace who you are as a couple. Maybe it's getting up early for the sunrise on a mountain top or taking a zodiac up Kauai's incredible Napali Coast. Maybe it's kayaking to one of Maine's many secluded islands. Maybe you decided a multi day backpacking trip on the John Muir Trail is the perfect way to elope! Let's plan a day that is 100% your own! I want to capture images of your adventures, not just the grand views/epic landscapes but also those fleeting, sweet in between moments.

• What the Heck Does an Elopement Photographer Do? (beyond taking epic photos)

Of course I'm their to take epic photos of you and your best friend but It's so much more than that. From the very beginning, when you choose me as your elopement photographer, I'm here to help! Much of the time couples book me before they even know where they want to go! In the beginning I listen to your vision for your perfect day and give you ideas + advice on locations, fun activities you could fill the day with and beautiful ceremony locations. I help build a timeline that is centered around what you want your elopement adventure to look like! I'm your elopement photographer, friend and experience crafter/planner!

• Can We Elope With Friends or Family?

Absolutely! There are no rules to how your elopement should look. My elopement packages include coverage for celebrations with up to 25 guests.

• Where do you live?

In a bus! No seriously, my husband and I spent the last two year converting a 37' long school bus into our dream off grid home on wheels. We now travel the country full time and I am available for elopements worldwide. Obviously the bus doesn't fly or swim so if you choose a far off locale (Kauai, New Zealand, Scotland) my passport is current and I'll be on a plane in a jiffy.

• But We're So Awkward in Front of the Camera!

Would you believe me if I said all my couples ask the same thing? I got you! My goal is to get to know the two of you in the months/weeks leading up to your day. I want you to feel comfortable and confident, like you're hanging out with an old friend. On the day of your elopement I'll have you moving and interacting with each other in a natural way that also has you saying "damn, we look good"

• Will You Help Me Find the Perfect Location to Get Married?

ABSOLUTELY! ! I'm here for you! One of the first things I do after you book me for your elopement is send out a fun questionnaire. Once I get your questionnaire back I start putting together a list of custom curated locations for your elopement adventure. If you already know where in the world you want to elope but aren't sure the specific location you want your ceremony then I'll go ahead and start curating a list of options for an epic ceremony. I'm here for you!

• We Want to Book What Are the Next Steps?

Heck yes! Let's do this! Reach out to me via the contact page, share as many fun details as you want. I'll get back to you within 24 hours with all the information you want/need to know! From there we can set up a phone/facetime chat, meet in person, continue our email correspondence or even send texts back and forth. I'm pretty chill and I want this experience to be stress free! My goal is to answer all your questions right off the bat so that you know you're in fabulous hands when you choose me as your elopement photographer. Once we've gone back and forth and you've chosen a package that works for you its a matter of signing your online contract. Your contract + a retainer of 50% books the date! From there the adventure begins!
