Plan and prepare but always remember that at the end of the day, you’re marrying the love of your life and that’s all that really matters.


The Elopement

My goal as your elopement photographer is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple.

Photography is more than just images, it’s a real part of your day. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When my couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and your photography is a huge part of that experience...shouldn’t it be fun? and enjoyable? and natural? I think so! My goal is to not only capture memories for my clients, it’s to create an experience that they will never forget.

One way I ensure that my #HSPcouples enjoy the BEST photographic experience possible is through forming a relationship with them. Couples should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer and be EXCITED about the whole process with them! After booking I love getting to know my clients + it helps them warm up to the camera so that they are ready to rock and roll during their portrait session! After our session together my clients feel more like friends and that is one of the things I cherish the most about this job! Now that you know a little bit about my approach, you can continue reading to find more detailed information about THE ELOPEMENT EXPERIENCE!

the process




The HSP Elopement package starts at 4 Hour of photography coverage 200-250 high resolution images displayed on your own personal gallery where you can easily download, share and print all your fully edited images

You can tailor your elopement experience to best suit your needs & add-on additional coverage upon request. A $350 deposit and signed contract is due to reserve your date.


I love getting to combine the two things that are so near to my heart: traveling & creating portrait magic with my adventurous couples! My bags are (practically) never unpacked and ready to go! Past travels that have stolen my heart:




Southern California

Charleston, SC

Cape Cod

Next on my bucket list:



New Zealand

Palm Springs

Beyond your included 60 miles of travel for stateside weddings I charge $0.57 per additional mile of travel. For weddings 100+ miles away I require 1 night sleeping accommodations. For weddings over 2 hours away from home, I require a two-night hotel stay (the night before and the night of) How this typically works is I book my room at a hotel local to the wedding venue and when I book the place closer to the wedding date I will update this cost into the final payment invoice that is due 4 weeks prior to your wedding.  Let me know if you have any questions on this!

For out of state destinations I create a custom tailored package including your chosen collection + airfare, rental car, and lodging for the time there.
