Could you see yourself getting married in a place like this? In a field of yellow flowers with a gorgeous mountain as your backdrop? Private, wild, and beautiful? It's totally possible! - You don't have to hike and you don't need an off-road vehicle to get to this spot, and yet it's quiet and private. But if you want to have a little adventure and do some hiking, I bet the views from that mountain are amazing! - I found this amazing spot while searching for a hike for a sunrise adventure session in Colorado. I use lots of online resources to find places that fit what my clients are looking for, and then I get to scout them out in person (always so fun!). Just one of the many things I do as an adventure wedding photographer to make my couples' wedding days epic!
I'm crazy about elopements. I often get teary-eyed talking with couples about my passion for elopements and what I love about them. I get SO much joy from helping couples plan their unique elopements and being there t9 capture such a meaningful moment in their lives. It really is an honor and such wonderful experience. Elope, my friends!
A magical desert snow made Cassie + Morgan's elopement absolutely amazing! These two were happy to spend the day out in the falling snow, and had so much fun enjoying it. As southern California natives, this was such a treat for their wedding day, and definitely unforgettable! - Location: @desertharborretreat Hair + Makeup: @genicalee_hmua Flowers: @floralfetishabq #maddiemaepresets @maddiemaepresets

It's okay to be picky about your wedding photographer! I've always said that there's a photographer out there for everyone, and I don't think you should book someone just because they're available and in your price range. And it's also more than loving their work and style. - Does your photographer GET you? Do they share the same vision as you do for the wedding day? Can they offer you the kind of EXPERIENCE you're looking for? Because wedding photography is sooo much more than just pretty photos - it's an experience on one of the most memorable days of your life! - Take the time to chat with your potential photographer and get to know them. Share about yourselves and what your dreams are for your elopement. (It's basically a first date. 😂) It might sound a bit daunting to find your photographer soul mate, but I promise it will be worth it!
This view and this moment are ones I'll remember forever. 😍 The desert takes on a new character in the snow, and seeing the iconic orange rocks of Arizona shrouded in fog and snow was such a cool experience. I'd been here before on a sunny, super windy day, but this was a totally different look. - Swipe to see of different the canyon looked in just an hour of time! When I first got there, the rocks in the bend were barely visible because of all the fog and the thick snow falling. The fog swirled in and out of the canyon, and the snow was on and off the whole time. But just as the sun was setting, it peeked out of the mist for just a moment to wash everything in some golden light. With the rocks already such a vibrant orange from the moisture, it was an amazing scene!
