Colorado Springs Elopement Photography
First things first...
Create Memories solely for YOU
This is the part where I get to be on the same page with you. Tell me what your first date together was like, tell me what you're favorite things about each other are, share the hard sh*t you've been through together that's made you stronger, because you already know that I'm here to capture the real stuff and raw feelings, not just another photographer.
I'm here to serve as your wing-man for the day, through rain or shine, and that would need both of our trust. I put in a lot of work in what I do because I give a shit and know that it takes more than just being able to take nice pictures to be an elopement photographer. It's about capturing beautiful authentic images for the couples I work so that the photos live on for more lifetimes to come.

After eloping with my soulmate, I found that there was a huge gap in knowledge and acceptance of LGBTQ+ weddings. I wanted to serve ALL couples with the best information to empower them to make their day as special as possible, and cherish the finer details of it all.

Where are you based and do you travel?
Based in southern Colorado, in Colorado Springs, I'm just drive from mountains, deserts, plains, rolling hills, forests, alpine lakes, and so much more, making a phenomenal home base for my photography. I find that my style of photography thrives in the natural light environment that the great outdoors provide. My favorite images ever captured are when the couple are surrounded by the serenity of nature around them. Capturing the feeling of love with the power of a landscape can make for incredible wedding photos. I know the feeling of getting travel to amazing places when I'm with my love, and I only dream to convey those same emotions in photographs for others. It's an exhilarating experience to say your vows in an epic location, and it would be my honor to capture these moments for you.
With that being said, I'm only able to take on so many destination elopements and weddings. This allows for me to focus on every single couple to the highest degree. Once these 5 spaces are filled, I will not be able to take on anymore destination bookings, so if you are interested in booking, I would say sooner than later is best!
Can we see full wedding galleries?
Yes! Take a look at the 'Gallery' tab at the top or bottom of the page. There's categories to the gallery so you're able to view some of my past work.
What do your travel fees include?
My travel fees are base on whichever local area or region of the country your destination is located in. Great news! My packages for International and US elopements and weddings include my travel fees, this also applies to any weddings book during my scheduled travel dates (See homepage). Trust that there's no hidden fees here, friend! I have plenty of travel experience and you can leave it all to me to book my accommodations. I will show up ready to be alongside you both for the day!
Within Colorado, there's a minimal fees for beyond 60 miles of Colorado Springs. If your celebration is not local to Colorado, the expense for travel include a hotel stay for at least 2 nights, round-trip flight, and rental car transportation. I'm more than happy to be fully transparent and provide you with a custom travel quote.
How many photos will I receive?
I typically shoot and deliver about 45-60 images per hour on a wedding day. I don't limit with a minimum or maximum amount of photos because every celebration is unique and timelines can vary. This comes down to how you incorporate the events to your day, amount of coverage, and the memories to-be-made in between. I truly select the best photos for you and don't leave out any special ones. I make sure to include the laughs, tears, and the joyful moments that happen. The best ones you may find are different than the best ones I share, so I include the as much as I can and you can choose your favorites from the gallery!
How will I receive my photos?
Your photos are delivered via an online gallery service. This gallery is how you can seamlessly download to your device in full resolution. You will have exclusive access to the Print Store where you can find the perfect frame or product for your memories.
What if you have never been to the venue?
You have booked your wedding venue because it's important and special to you both. If you've selected a venue that I've never been to, it is included in every package that I do research and work to find the best spots for photos. I will typically visit the venue the day prior or early the day of your wedding to scout for the locations for the first look, intimate vow exchange, wedding party portraits, etc. This will give me the best map of where we will be so you can trust that all times, I've got you covered!
how soon will i receive my photos?
I really do my best to get you your photos as soon as possible. There's a whole lot of love that I pour into editing galleries because it's where I find a lot happiness in what I do. The timelines typically are 4-6 weeks from your wedding day, you will receive your online gallery. This can vary by the season, but you will receive express communication about any updates! I will also send you previews for your gallery within a week to get you excited about the lifetime memories captured.
What if we're not fans of being in front of the camera?
I've got you! When you scroll through the galleries of my work, a strong majority of those folks haven't been in front of camera much either. This is something I know well, and I will do my best to capture the most *you* moments.
Do you offer a payment plan?
Yes! With your 40 percent retainer fee payment, this secured your date and we're good to book and solidify for your wedding day. The remaining balance can be resolved with three split payments prior to your wedding day. Just let me know on our call together or in your email inquiry whether that's something you are interested in.
Do you offer engagement sessions?
Yes!! These are the perfect opportunity for us to work together and get an essence of what our experience will be like together. We can explore a favorite area of yours, or you can select from a list of some of the cool places I've scoped out. Then we will work together to discover how we can make this session custom to you both.
