Intimate weddings and elopements are not defined in the same way, as they were decades ago. These are NOT the ” let’s run off, get hitched, and not tell anyone” type of events. So let’s explore what these weddings really are. Most importantly, they matter just as much as a big wedding with multiple guests and can last just as long as a full wedding day – just remember that this is about YOUR STORY! We can literally do ANYTHING that you want. You can keep it super intimate wether you have 200 or 10 guests, or it’s just the two of you. The possibilities are endless – we are down to do whatever it is you choose to do for your best day ever!

Sometimes I like to join a styled shoot here and there, to shoot some fun shots and hang out with photographer friends.
