Wedding and Adventure Elopement Photography

Documenting exhilarating, intentional, one-of-a-kind celebrations of love throughout the united states!

You deserve a one-of-a-kind adventure elopement photography experience that fits your love like a glove

Whether your epic adventure elopement is already half-planned, or you’re still just toying with the idea of doing something outside the box, I’m here to tell you that you really can have the elopement of your dreams. It can be as bold, quirky, and downright mind-blowing as you’ve always imagined…or never dared to! I believe your elopement photography should feel like dancing with your best friends in the front row at a concert. Like driving with the windows down in the summertime. Like, everything you’ve always wanted and everything you two have ever hoped for!

Are you ready to leave behind all things Pinterest-perfect and race towards something deeper? Something new? Something infinitely more genuine, joyful, and true-to-you? Me too! Why don’t we go together?

“Her energy is infectious, her care is authentic, her love for her craft is genuine and all of that will be translated to your photos.”

I’m here for you, whether you’ve already begun dreaming up your perfect elopement at an alpine lake in the mountains or are desperate for someone to guide you through every step of this whole getting-hitched-in-the-mountains thing.

Hey there, I’m Jess!


Your adventure buddy and new fav adventure elopement photographer

When I was little, I always followed the rules. As an adult, I help couples like you break them on the reg! What changed? It’s a LONG story, and an impulsive decision to go skydiving definitely had something to do with it. But most of all, my passion for unfettered, unrestrained love stories like yours tugged me toward a life spent documenting “I do”s in the most breathtaking landscapes across America.

Known for wearing cozy beanies in every shade, scoping out hidden gem locations, and creating backup plans for my backup plans, I expertly blend planning with spontaneity to create the perfect elopement adventure. I am proud to deliver a photography experience that’s about so much more than the photos we take.

I can’t wait to explore the possibilities with you and bring them to life in a way you’ve never even imagined. Let’s dive in!

This Adventure Elopement Photographer’s top 6 Favorite Destinations

As you’re scouring the internet and looking at different adventure elopement photography, the question of where to elope has probably inevitably come up! I mean, there are so many amazing locations to choose from. Below are my favorite destinations to capture and plan adventure elopements.

Whether you’re an avid hiker or more of a casual adventurer, Montana truly has magic to offer everyone. Glacier National Park, also known as the “Crown of the Continent” will leave your jaw on the floor no matter where you are or in what direction you look!

If you’re looking for a dog-friendly paradise where you can say “I do” without an officiant and even have your pup’s paw print on the marriage license, look no further! Colorado’s got it all including off-roading adventures to alpine lakes to breathtaking red rocks and 14ers!

There’s nothing quite like Jackson, Wyoming to help you feel immersed in western culture and accessible mountain views. Best known for moose and bear sightings and out-of-this-world sunrises and sunsets, you can’t go wrong with this epic area!

The idea of a destination elopement may unattainable, but I’m here to tell you that it’s possible and beyond worthwhile! The land of fire and ice will leave your heart racing with everything from lush waterfalls to black sandy beaches, volcanoes, and glacial lagoons!

Yosemite National Park

This is a destination featuring heart-stopping drops and granite walls with waterfalls steeper than you ever knew possible. It’s just as exhilarating and awe-inspiring as you can imagine from photos on the internet and even features some amazing spots to stargaze, too!

Oregon Coast

If you’re dreaming of cozy, moody vibes and cozy small coastal towns, look no further than the Oregon Coast. The misty and foggy weather will bring the most romantic vibe to your intimate elopement if you choose to embrace all that mother nature has in store!
