The Pinckards, professional elopement photographers in the Adirondacks of upstate New York on Mount Jo

way more than just photographers

OUR JOB IS TO HELP YOU HAVE THE BEST DAY POSSIBLE...

...and take photos in the process.

If you forced us to put a percentage to it, photography probably only accounts for about 20-30% of what we do. Our job is SO much more than just photos.

Here is just a small list of everything we do to ensure that your day is amazing:

  • Planning + Logistics

    We are here to help with ANY questions you have while planning your elopement, whether that's making a timeline, packing for a hiking excursion, etc.

  • Making it Legal

    Dan is ordained & can legally solemnize your marriage, and Laura can sign your marriage license as the witness.

  • Choosing a Location

    Whether it's a ceremony site that's accessible for handicapped guests or the most breathtaking view possible for your photos, we'll help you find the perfect spot.

  • Lodging, vendors, etc.

    Trying to find somewhere to stay, a florist to help with a bouquet, or a local HMU? We are happy to connect you with our favorite recommendations!

  • Celebrating with you

    Just an FYI, we WILL be shamelessly cheering after your first kiss. Whether you have guests with you or not, you can count on us being 100% supportive of you doing YOUR wedding YOUR way.

And those are just the "official" parts of our job...

Here are some other things that we ACTUALLY do at elopements:

...because the photos are only as good as the day that they capture

Don't take our word for it, though.

What our clients say...

Laura and Dan made our elopement incredibly memorable.

They were professional and easy to communicate with from our first email. They were very thoughtful in helping us brainstorm the day, provided suggestions for location, time table, and it was convenient that Dan is ordained to legally marry couples! Not to mention, their artistic lens is one-of-a-kind. Working with the Pinckards has given us memories to last a lifetime.”

- MaryJane

The Pinckards were AMAZING in every way!!

I was so nervous to elope due to what my family would think and I also have always been shy behind a camera my whole life but they made everything feel so comfortable and natural. They reminded us it’s our day and all about us! And the pictures came out so beautiful I still tear up looking at them!”

- Ashlynn

“Dan and Laura were hands down the easiest and BEST decision while planning our elopement.

 They are both a dream to work with, and are all around wonderful (also the definition of goals!). We can’t begin to express how great our experience was with Laura and Dan. They are both very personable, professional, kind, and truly care about your vision, while not being afraid to step in as an advocate so others don’t dampen your day. 

The quality and style of their photos is beyond incredible, and they make it such an enjoyable time. On the day of our ceremony, they willingly drove around randomly to find the perfect places for photos (which turned out absolutely stunning!), had the best ideas and poses, and never rushed us. They really listened and cared, and we could not be happier with the end results!”

- Victoria

but are the pictures the best part?

well, that's for you to decide.
