Experience the Pacific Northwest through the eyes of a local. Many have been transplanted here, but I was raised camping and hiking among the trees and mountains of Washington's National Parks and am intimately familiar with the hidden treasures of Washington State. I'm passionate about love, light, and the pursuit of adventure, from sea to summit
With over ten years of experience working exclusively in the outdoor and travel industries, I'm a trained and experienced outdoor leader. I capture not just what you look like, but how you ARE together. As a Washington based, world traveling, adventure elopement photographer, I guide you through the elopement planning process from start to finish.
I promise to deliver Instagram worthy photos without the harmful Instagram impact on the environment. My greatest passion behind adventure photography lies in environmental conservation and stewardship. A portion of all sales goes to my partner organization, Washington's National Park Fund, the non-profit that funds the parks in my home state. I'm also a Certified Leave No Trace Trainer and a member and the founder of the partnership program for Nature First, an alliance of photographers dedicated to preserving highly photographed wild places through wise use, education, outreach, community, and research.
As a couple, do you find that there's a blurred line of separation between earth's wild nature and your own? I find that experiences in nature evoke an overwhelming sensation of awe and an outpouring of gratitude for all of life, along with a sense of connectedness unlike any other. It's exactly how it should feel to get married.
Growing up, I remember riding my horse along airy ridgelines imagining my dream wedding on top of a mountain. I remember the awareness I had that coming back to nature was like coming home to my true essence, the very best, most radiant version of myself.
If you've always wanted to embody that version of yourself on your wedding day, and hold on to the feeling through documentary style photographs, let's talk!
“The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites one family. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it.

A DAY OF PRESENCE WITH YOUR PARTNER
Do you want a day that allows you to truly be in your element together? A day that's just about the two of you, and not everyone else? You get to choose how you get married and the decision to elope and go on the adventure of your dreams affords you that freedom. Wedding vows are intimate! When you exchange them you want all of your attention on your partner and not on an audience or the details of your event.
MINIMIZE YOUR IMPACT. MAXIMIZE YOUR EXPERIENCE.
An elopement is perfect if you're concerned about your impact on the environment and want to reduce waste stemming your wedding. An adventure elopement is a great way to embrace minimalism and create more space for meaningful moments on your wedding day.
EMPOWER YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ADVENTURE
Adventure is a training ground for life. It teaches us how to work interdependently as a team, and how to travel light by carrying less to experience more. It offers up the opportunity to strengthen our adaptability, resilience, and connection as we cope with the unknown, and learn to enjoy going with the flow. Through adventure we find our limits and grow beyond them as we challenge ourselves. Above all, adventure empowers us to evolve into the best version of ourselves. Eloping means you get to be and see that person the moment you exchange vows and become one. Adventuring together prepares you for life together, It's the perfect way to join in marriage with strength, connection, appreciation and above all, love.
