Congratulations! You’ve gotten the ring and made the decision to elope in upstate New York. The next question is: Where...
Your Guides to an Adventurous Elopement
Have your wedding, your way
Picture your perfect elopement
…to an unforgettable day that’s all about you and the love your partner share
where you are free to cherish every single moment
But what does it REally mean to elope?
the word "elopement" doesn't mean what it used to.
It’s no longer about running away & getting married in secret.
Today, eloping is about getting married in a way that reflects your relationship, in a way that makes you happy, in a place that is meaningful to you.
No old-fashioned checklists, gaudy frills, or performing for the in-laws required.
Just you, your beloved, and a magical place to call your own.

Still have questions?
Here are some common questions we get about elopements + photography
That really depends on the season, but the earlier the better! If you are flexible with the date, at least a few months in advance. If you want to elope on a specific day, you should reach out at least a year in advance to be safe!
We typically start off with a phone call, and once we have some basic details (e.g. date, general location, overall vision), we’ll send you a link to our booking portal! After you book, we spend the next several weeks/months helping you plan your dream elopement!
That depends on a few factors! Our elopement photography packages typically range from around $5,000 – $10,000. If you contact us, we’d be happy to give you a quote that matches your dream elopement!
We have some packages for a half-day, some for a full-day, and some for multiple days! We don’t offer any short packages (e.g. 1 or 2 hours), because we truly believe that your wedding day deserves to be documented! There are some photographers who offer quick “elopement photoshoots,” but what we do is SO much more than that.
Only if by “photoshoot” you mean the best day of your lives that happens to be documented along the way. Your elopement should be filled with whatever is most exciting, memorable, relaxing, or [insert any positive adjective] for you two as a couple! We’ll just take photos as you have a blast.
We’re not technically “planners” per se, but we’re WAY more than just elopement photographers. We are here to help with as much as we can, whether that be chatting about the timeline, researching locations, recommending vendors, etc. We’ll also be sending you helpful resources along the way!
We don’t have a hard and fast rule, but elopements tend to have under 20 guests. We also shoot weddings with more guests, depending on the details! It definitely doesn’t hurt to reach out, even if you’re having 827 guests.
