Here's to the couples who aren't afraid of a little cold and snow, and welcome adventure!
Adventure elopements in the southwest have a big dose of opens skies and wild places. And I love it!
One thing I love about desert elopements: those open spaces and sky views give us the most beautiful golden light. So romantic! - Hair + Makeup: @cjohnsonmakeup
I would love to say that planning your dream elopement is easy, but it's not. While in many ways there's less noise and stress to deal with, you still have logistics to plan. And since eloping is so totally out of the box, you won't find helpful planning advice in a bridal magazine. Honestly, a lot of people don't get it. There will be vendors who aren't flexible enough to work with you and don't share your vision. BUT, when you find a photographer, officiant, makeup artist, etc. who are on the same page as you, you get something so magical! Your wedding day and all the planning in between can be SO easy and effortless when you find professionals who get you and can help you design a day that is totally you. - That's why I'm all-in for elopements! You're planning an elopement that can be anything you want, but sometimes it's hard to know where to start. I'm always here to help with finding an awesome location, a non-traditional dress, the perfect time for the perfect light as well as figuring out what fun and meaningful things to do on your wedding day. - So if you've decided to elope, first of all - YAY! And secondly, I'm here to be your ally and help you as your work towards an epic elopement. It's going to be so awesome!
Yesterday I shared a recap of our 2018 travels (I saved it to highlights in case you missed it), and it was so fun to look back over the amazing year I've had! We enjoyed destinations on the east and west coasts, several mountain trips, and a two-week camping road trip through California. I know I'm so privileged to be able to travel so often. It never feels often enough and I'm always looking forward to the next trip, but I know so many don't have this opportunity. So I'm just so thankful. - And I can't wait for the adventures of 2019! Believe it or not, I've never been out of the country - but this year that will change! Our trip to London, the Jurassic Coast, Edinburgh, and a road trip through the Scottish Highlands and islands is going to be amazing! - I hope you're savoring the adventures of 2018 and looking forward to future travels. I hope you're inspired to go out of your comfort zone and try new things. I hope in 2019 you #optoutside ! - Photo from wild camping along Boreas Pass near Breckenridge, Colorado in June!
Did you just get engaged over the holidays? Thinking you want some engagement photos to capture this time in your life, but not into uncomfortable, super posed photo shoots? Try an Adventure Session! Your job during an Adventure Session is to have fun, enjoy being with each other, and explore an awesome place. Easy, right? My job is to get the photos that are authentic to you and your partner and that feel candid and real. Everyone deserves an experience and photos that fits YOU. So let's start planning!
