What Is An Elopement? What Is An Adventure Elopement?
What's the difference between a ELOPEMENT ADVENTURE & an ELOPEMENT? 🤷🏽♀️
Drew & I offer collections for both elopements and adventure elopements and we love offering you the experience of a lifetime. We think that any wedding or elopement should be just about your photos as your experience. We want you to look back on your pictures and remember how loved, cared for, beautiful, joyful, radiant, handsome, excited, on top of the world you felt. We create that experience by getting to know you through Zoom meet ups, constant emails, and giving you all our expertise as travelers and photographers!
💐 What is an elopement?
An elopement is a smaller wedding or an intentional celebratory gathering that is the perfect way to have a stress free wedding that's simple, unique, and personal. With an elopement, the focus is on you and your relationship, not hosting, not performing, not worrying about what time to cut the cake. You can include traditions or throw them out the window. Family can come to your elopement or it can be just you two and the officiant. Elopements can be on the whim or well planned. Elopements can be local or destination. Elopements can be a few hours or several days. Elopement can be your ceremony and then down the road you can have a big party with everyone!
An elopement could be where you head to the courthouse, have a small backyard wedding, or already have an intimate venue booked. (Pro tip: Go all out on flowers, have a baller wedding outfit, rent a sick car, an elopement doesn't have to mean plain! Add in your own personalities & flare!)
You get to do whatever you want, wherever you want!
🏔 What is an adventure elopement?⠀⠀⠀⠀
An adventure elopement is a small wedding or intentional celebratory gathering usually somewhere you & your love are not based and want to travel to. If you have the travel bug and you want to include epic natural backdrops in your wedding, then an adventure elopement might be for you. An adventure elopement doesn't require 10 mile hiking! We can balance accessible with jaw dropping landscapes. Beach, mountains, woods, desert, boat, island, field, salt flats, national park. We have loved being elopement photographers in Moab, the Salt Flats, Utah, Arizona, Sedona, and all over the world.
An adventure elopement is just that, an adventure! You can be adventurous in small way too! Like with your outfits, your flowers, your transportation. Your adventure elopement can be a day, 2 days, a weekend, or a week! We can go to several locations, we can hike, we can drive to epic views, we can travel abroad!
We can figure out a way to include your friends or family, plan on how to honor your heritage or religion, decorate to fit your personalities or let the stunning scenery do the talking. The possibilities are endless with an adventure elopement!
Usually, this requires a little more planning from our end, which we love and we have a collection for! We are lifelong travelers, and having lived abroad and photographed dozens of couples abroad, we have the experience to take care of y'all!
We LOVE helping pick out locations, activities, sending you super cool airbnbs, suggesting vendors, and planning a timeline!
🌎 We have traveled to dozens of countries, national parks, and states! We have been all over the world for adventure elopements & we love travel & we know how to travel well! Iceland or Italy? Mountains or Beach? Utah or Hawaii? Hike to a mountain top or boat to a tiny island? Salt Flats or Moab elopement? National park or international? We can help with it all because we have that experience!
🏞 You can create your elopement day or elopement weekend however you want! For example, we've had couple who had a sunrise elopement on Miami Beach with their friends, then we went to an amazing venue called Vizcaya that looked like Venice, Italy for pictures. Then, they went and met up with their friends for a pool party! We've also had a 2 day elopement in Moab, Utah where we visited several spots in a National Park until sunset then the next morning we got up for sunrise and went to another epic location.
