I'm all here for a big party on the dance floor, but there's something so special and intimate about elopements. You get to spend the day in a way that's meaningful to you, whatever that looks like. You can hike a mountain, just you two and a photographer, or relax in a gorgeous setting and host dinner for your closest people, or explore the city and end the night with beer + pizza. You can enjoy your day however speaks to you! And limiting the number of people involved gives you the freedom to focus on the things most important to you.
If you're leaning towards celebrating intimately or want to have a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, I'd love to help you dream up your perfect day and capture it in a meaningful way.
this is your adventure
Let's create a whole day you'll both love
Eloping can be more than just vows and a few photos on the courthouse steps. It's a chance to spend the day, just the two of you, doing what you love. Creating an experience that means something to you both and memories you'll cherish forever. This could be hiking to a beautiful lookout, renting a helicopter to get amazing views, toasting your new marriage with your favorite beers at the base of a waterfall, or eating your wedding cake in pure wilderness with no one else around (except me of course).
This is your wedding day, it's such an important moment, let's mark it with an amazing experience.
planning a day you'll love
I'm here to be your guide, dress fluffer, adventure buddy and to take some damn amazing photos too! I'll help with choosing the perfect locations, researching permits, creating a timeline, and of course, fitting your bouquet into your hiking bag.
Whether you've already picked the exact spot you want to say your vows, or are still throwing a dart at a world map to see which country you'll end up in, get in touch and I can help you along the way!
“Rachel's photography will not disappoint you. Her work is timeless + absolutely stunning. She is personable, refreshing, and communicates with you to make sure your vision is captured perfectly.
Honestly, her work speaks for itself.
Bonus: Rachel travels! Our engagement photo and wedding were in two different cities.”
How many photos do we get?
You get all the good ones! I don't believe in limiting the amount of photos you receive, I edit and deliver as many photos as needed to tell your story. A full wedding day typically receives 500+ hand-edited images.
when can we see our images?
I send a sneak peek of 25+ photos within 72 hours of your wedding so you have some beautiful photos to share immediately! Then, you'll get your whole gallery within 8 weeks after your wedding date, to reminisce on your perfect day!
what can you help us with?
I can help with the whole process from planning your perfect day until you have your beautiful album in your hands! I'm here to help with location and timeline choices, posing and bringing out your natural smiles, and helping you have a great experience!
Your elopement day is really just the two of you (and maybe some close loved ones) having a great adventure. You get to plan your 'perfect day' to share with your new spouse and be present to soak up all the little moments. And once the sun has set on that day, you'll have amazing photographs to relive again and again. These are the memories you'll share with your friends and family, your children, and each other for years to come.
