Choose a wedding day that focuses on what’s most important...

 

And what's more important than spending your wedding day having the time of your life with your partner for life? I love elopements because they're an opportunity for you to share experiences together, to be romantic, and to focus on being fully present with that person. Your shared happiness is the top priority on this day, and that's nothing less than what you deserve! 

Top Reasons Couples Elope:

  • They want to invest their time, energy, and money in an amazing experience for themselves.

  • They're adventurous people at heart and want their wedding day to reflect who they are as a couple.

  • Big events and being in the spotlight isn't their vibe.

  • To avoid drama with other people and keep the day focused on what's important.

  • Planning a big wedding sounds like a stressful, daunting task.

If any of those reasons resonated with you, it's time to make the jump and start putting together your best day ever!

Why Wild North?

There are a million photographers out there, so why choose Wild North Weddings to document your wedding day? 

✓ Experienced in documenting adventure weddings across the US and helping couples create the perfect elopement day 

I've photographed couples from coast to coast, in wild weather conditions and climates, in the most beautiful national parks, and have helped guide my couples through each part of the planning process.  My experience in being an adventure photographer means that I'm prepared for different challenges, can help you overcome yours, and that I'm ready to document the day no matter what! 

✓ Weddings are photographed candidly and thoughtfully with the goal of telling the story of your day!

Your wedding gallery will be a beautiful story you'll reflect on forever. Every emotional, exciting, silly, and "oops!" moment will be included in that tale, from tears of joy to dirty hiking boots. My goal is to capture genuine moments of love and happiness so that your photos show the true nature of your relationship and your personalities shine through. 

Award-Winning service with 5-star reviews and 10 years of experience

Being a great wedding photographer is more than taking pretty pictures! Ensuring that my clients have a great overall experience working with me is a huge priority, which is why I've received those 5-star reviews for a whole decade now, as well as Couples' Choice and The Knot's "Best Of" awards.

✓ Leave No Trace certified

A lot of the adventure wedding experience relies on our country's parks and public lands continuing to allow us to use them for stunning scenery, so I've pledged to follow Leave No Trace principles and will always implement those rules on wedding days as well.  

✓ Inclusive to All!

No matter your identity, sexuality, skin tone, abilities, culture, or religion - You'll only find love, appreciation, and kindness from me!

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

How Does the Process Work?​

​1.) Let's Be Friends

Schedule your complimentary consultation and we'll schedule a phone call or video chat where I get to know more about the two of you and we'll discuss your vision, scheduling, location ideas, and questions you have.

2.) Make it Official!

Once you've chosen a date, we'll sign the contract, pay the retainer, and start looking for your perfect destination! 

3.) Nailing Down the Details

I'll send my planning guide loaded with information, how-tos, and helpful tips & tricks! I'll also send a questionnaire for the two of you to go over that will help me scout out the best locations for your wedding destination, start searching for vendor recommendations if necessary, and research permits & laws to make sure we're doing things the right way. You'll book your vendors and fill out the necessary paperwork and permits yourselves, but I'll handle any and all travel for myself, with the exception of on-site excursions. And if there's anything you have questions about or need help deciding I'm here for it all!

4.) Get Married!

It's here! Whether it's a 3 am wake up and walk to your destination by headlamp before sunrise, or a sunset ceremony with the alpenglow sky in the background, I'll be there documenting your day from start to finish. The day is totally up to you, so if you'd like me to meet you at your hotel room beforehand for preparation shots I'll be there, or I can just meet you on location. After the sun has gone down and the portraits are over, often couples will have me follow them to dinner to document a little cake cutting, speeches (if there are guests), and then part ways at that point. Or if you just want to go back to your accommodations, that's ok too! The day is yours and I'll never pressure you to do more or less than you want.

What do we do for 8 hours during an elopement?

Don't worry - this definitely isn't an 8-hour photoshoot. This is 8 hours of you having the best day ever I'm just there to document it! You'll share new experiences, see new things, get married, and celebrate all within that time period. The time goes by pretty quickly when the day actually comes, especially when you're including things like hiking, ATV rides, kayaking, pub hopping, fireside celebrations, helicopter rides, and exploring new locations. 

How far in advance should we expect to book?

I've helped couples plan elopements from 2 years out all the way to 2 weeks out! But most couples book around 6-9 months away from the wedding day so that we have enough time to obtain the necessary permits, score a dress, and find travel accommodations. 

Can we bring our family, friends, or pets?

Absolutely! More often than not, I'm photographing elopements that have a few guests to help share the day with the couple. But my advice - only bring guests with you if that's what YOU want and if they'll contribute to your happiness that day, not take away from it. If you don't think that will be the case, think about including them in other ways! I have plenty of ideas to share that will help them feel included without being physically present.

 

As far as pets - I love meeting new furry friends! But if you're bringing them along with you on the trails, I ask that they be leashed and recommend having someone else with us that can handle them so it's not something you'll need to worry about when they get tired, bored, or uncomfortable in their environment. 

If an adventurous elopement sounds like the perfect wedding experience for you, inquire about availability & ask questions!
