OH HI. I'm thrilled you're here. If you are, you're probably engaged (or soon-to-be) so first of all, congratulations! This is an exciting time, but whole process of planning an elopement can be overwhelming. I'm here to tell you that  it doesn't have to be! I'm all about elopements that are authentic, relaxed, and FUN.

want a wedding day that is AUTHENTIC TO YOU?

-You want a wedding that is a true reflection of your relationship, and not a performance for your guests
-You want to enjoy your wedding day without the stress that comes with planning a huge event
-You want to share your vows with just your partner, and maybe a few close friends and family
-You feel burned out at the thought of planning a big wedding
-You'd rather stay out of the spotlight and focus on the whole reason you're doing this in the first place - to commit yourself to the one you love

Does this sound familiar?

if that sounds like you...

An intimate wedding or elopement might be right for you! As a photographer and planner, I can help you bring your ideal wedding vision to life, and be there to capture and preserve those memories. And don't worry, I still take a small number of large weddings every year too, but only if we're a great fit!

let's start planning your day!

the experience

Our relationship begins with a phone call (or a taco date if you're in town!). We'll talk all about your wedding day plans and make sure we'll be a great fit. I want to know all about you and your partner, what brings you joy, what your current Netflix binge is, your 5-year plan, and whatever else you want to throw at me.

I only take a limited number of  weddings every year, so I want to make sure I'm the perfect photographer for you! Limiting the number of weddings I shoot every year helps me focus more on my couples and serve them in the best way I can.

Since most couples who elope do not do an engagement session, we will get to know each other other ways! We'll chat on the phone, shoot each other texts (GIF's preferred), and have a few FaceTime calls before the day!

Since elopements almost always involve more hours of portrait time than a traditional wedding, you'll get lots of time in front of my lens. But don't worry, you'll get used to me quick! And if you feel awkward in front of the camera, you're not alone! I am the worst offender when it comes to the where-do-I-put-my-hands question. All I need to you do is be yourselves and I'll handle the rest!

By the end of the day we'll have made memories we'll never forget, we'll be exhausted, inspired, excited, and totally ready for dinner (maybe just me on that last part. No matter what your day will look like, you'll have some amazing photos to go along with the memories!

frequently answered questions

next question

do you shoot weddings of all sizes?

Definitely! While most of my calendar is filled with intimate weddings and elopements, I reserve a few weekends per year for larger weddings (50+ people). 

how do you decide which weddings to take?

My first priority is to serve my clients in the best way I can. So, that means making sure our personalities, values, and styles mesh. I see my couples as friends rather than just clients, and love getting to know them through the whole process.

how do i reserve my date?

After we talk in-person or on the phone, I'll send you a contract and proposal via email. All that's required to save your date is a 25% retainer and your signature!

how do you decide which images you deliver?

After your session the first thing I do is back up and cull (fancy word for select) your images. I take out all the blinks, blurs, and bad angles, leaving you with the best of the best. All those images then are edited and delivered to you in your online gallery. You can print, share, and download them as much as you'd like!

do you charge for travel?

All my prices include travel within 60 miles of Billings, MT. Other travel fees are accounted for on a case-by-case basis. Travel fees generally include mileage ($.38/mile) or airfare, hotel, and food costs.  Certain locations may require permits or visas, which would also be included in the travel charge.

do you offer albums in your packages?

While I don't include albums as part of my packages, I do include a print credit for the gallery store that can be put towards any prints, canvas, or albums. When you get in touch, I'll send you a link to a full online gallery so you can see exactly how they work and what products are offered!
