Hi Friend! Welcome! I'm Lindsey, your Girl in the Wild, Adventure Elopement Photographer.
I was raised camping and hiking among the towering trees and rugged peaks of Washington's National Parks and am intimately familiar with the hidden treasures of the West Coast and Pacific Northwest. I've also lived all over the Western United States and Europe (Norway ... Yes way!) and I've spent years exploring Northern California, Arizona, and Europe.
I promise to make wedding day to be the adventure of a lifetime. A legendary experience that indulges your mind, body, and spirit as you begin creating your legacy. The kind of moments make your skin tingle and "THIS is why I'm alive."
Behind the camera, I capture not just what you look like, but how you ARE together. Couples choose me because of how I see, amplify and capture your organic, authentic energy as couple. Working together we tap into your true nature, through nature, while I capture your presence together. Your presence in the moment, which reflects your essence as a couple. Your presence is the ultimate gift, and it is what allows you to deeply connect to your heart, your partner, and the places you immerse in and explore on your wedding day.
The photos crafted from your day serve as a tangible way to relive your adventure wedding memories again and again. I'll make sure you really cement your moments to memory while we work together, enhancing the value of your photos when you receive them.
I'm an eco-conscious and earth friendly; passionate about environmental conservation, sustainability and stewardship. A portion of all sales goes to the stewardship non-profits I'm partnered with, to make caring for wild places part of your legacy.
Growing up my way of connecting friends, myself and the world around me was through outdoor play. I remember going to summer camp and riding my horse along airy ridgelines imagining my dream wedding on top of a mountain. I used to ride to a new area every day and say THIS is the place. I've always thrived on picking out the most scenic and serene places to camp, build a fire, have a picnic, and of course get married.
I've realized that returning back to nature connects us to our true nature. It is a great remembering of our roots and our sense of place. It is return home to our most authentic selves. Stepping out into nature is to claim your place among the elements of the organic living world, empowering you to show up free, joyful, playful, and alive. It happens when we connect with our senses, and allow ourselves to be present in the moment. I do this work because I want you to feel that meaningful connection on your wedding day. Connection to yourself, your partner, your environment and all that is so that you can thrive in your marriage and in your lives together.
When you elope, you two get to be the most radiant and alive version of yourselves when you begin life together. WOW! Annnnnnd you get to relive the feeling again and again whenever you walk past your memories on your walls. The way he whispered in your ear. The way you danced on the mountain tops. The sensation of being drenched in golden sunlight while running barefoot, hand in hand, across the sand. The sight of you and your partner reflected perfectly in an alpine lake. Imagine getting to feel it ALL every single day for the rest of your life.
Sound like something you want for your wedding day?
Where you get to be one with nature while you become one with your partner?
That makes you feel like a kid again and helps you connect with your true nature, and your inner child?
That's all about your connection to each other? One that's not all about your parents friends, distant relatives, or traditions imposed on you by the wedding industry?
I'm ready to hit the trails, chase waterfalls, run off into the sunset, jump in a helicopter, and take you on an unforgettable, awe inspiring, adventure filled with memories that will breathe life into your relationship for years to come.
I'm passionate about the power the power of the present. and I identify with the Nordic philosophy of "hygge" or "koselig" (its Norwegian counterpart) which is all about intimate coziness and rich, and meaningful quality time with a few loved ones.
When I work with couples I'm all about creating a intentional day that creates this kind of intimacy together. Your time together to focus your attention on your partner, to do whatever you want, and have fun enjoying each other, out in the wild.
It's not about everyone else. It's an opportunity for you to get totally free from distraction.
From this space you get to turn up volume on your senses, while you immerse deeply in the elements, and soak in the beauty of nature with the one you love most in the world.
Imagine a gentle breeze blowing through your hair, and the sounds of your feet crunching on ground, as gentle golden light cascades across your face while you soak in alpenglow on the mountains around you. Imagine experiencing exquisite beauty at every turn matched only by the outpouring love you feel for your partner and all of life. The experience is exhilarating. This is what your elopement day is all about.
Big on experience, but like to go with less?
Enjoy the freedom of movement that comes with carrying a lighter load?
With less there's room to experience more.
If you're like me and your impact is important to you, an elopement is the perfect way to get married in a sustainable eco friendly way. It is the perfect way to kick off married life with integrity to your values.
An adventure elopement is a great way to embrace minimalism overall to create more space for meaningful moments on your wedding day. You're left with less to manage and more to experience.
I wholeheartedly believe your wedding day should be more about your epic adventure together and less about logistics.
Wedding vows are intimate! When you exchange them you want all of your attention on your partner and not distracted away by details that you shouldn't be thinking about. I'm here to give you back your presence, freeing you from details and distractions. Soak in your moment.
When I think about the foundation of a strong marriage, it starts with unwavering commitment, cooperation, teamwork, resilience, grit, and above love for each other.
Adventure empowers you to become the best version of yourselves together, bonding you through experience, not just ceremony, and setting you up for a lifetime of thriving in your relationship.
Can't think of a better way to get married? Me either!
Boldly stepping out of your comfort zone
Resiliently embracing the excitement of going with the flow
Supporting your partner every step of the way
You get to show up as the very best version of yourselves on your wedding day. Hello Beautiful Power Couple!
You get to be vitally alive in your skin together, experiencing your love in a totally raw, real, and liberated way
You get to be totally authentic, wild and free out in nature, as you were meant to be in life
Marriage is an adventure and journey in love. When you begin your lives through an experience that reflects the nature of that journey, you get to begin your legacy together in an absolutely LEGENDARY way. How you get married matters because its part of your legacy. Adventure elopements and weddings with me are a way to be thoughtful about how you move through life together and your impact on the world and the spaces you inhabit as a couple when you begin married life together.
