intentional wedding + Elopement FAqs

I live in Bend, Oregon and spend the majority of my time in the Pacific Northwest. The diverse landscapes are what draw me to this place. Oregon has a little bit of everything; lush forest, snow capped mountains, rivers and lakes, a stunning rugged coastline, and even expansive desert landscapes.

Where are you based?

I travel and photograph weddings and elopements all over the world. My favorite places to photograph include; the American west, Alaska, Iceland, the Alps, and New Zealand.

Do you travel?

Can you help us find an elopement or wedding location?

Many couples who are eloping don't have a location picked out when they inquire with me. I would love to help find the perfect place for you to exchange your vows.

Should we hire a planner?

My planning help is focused on location recommendations for elopements and portraits. I also assist with timeline creation as it pertains to photos.

For most weddings–and even many elopements–I recommend hiring a planner! A wedding planner is an amazing resource for creating a day that’s everything you’re looking for. They can handle everything–from a design perspective to managing the ins and outs of the day’s logistics. This means you can relax, avoid stressing the small stuff, and rest assured that every element of your day will be just as you envisioned them.

Don’t have a planner in mind? That’s no problem. I have a list of creative, talented elopement and wedding planners that I’d love to recommend to you.

Do you offer multi-day coverage?

Multi-day coverage is ideal for couple's deciding to include guests in their wedding experience. This enables more of your story to be captured beyond just your ceremony. A welcome dinner, exploring at sunset just the two of you the day before, a send-off brunch the day after! Your wedding is so much more than just your ceremony and a couple portraits.

I recommend reaching out 10-12 months before your ideal timeframe to ensure availability. Please reach out sooner for multi-day weddings or if you’re hoping to have an international wedding or elopement.

How far in advance should we book?

Will you keep our photos offline?

Discretion and exclusivity are important. Let's chat.
