You deserve an elopement experience that reflects...

  • THE MAGNITUDE of your commitment to each other
  • THE LIFESTYLE you want to live together
  • MEMORIES that are just the beginning of an amazing life together

Nice to meet you...

we're dan + Laura

Consider us your personal elopement experts (who are also incredible with a camera). 

Our jobs are to make sure you have a wedding day that is better than you could have imagined. More adventurous, more memory-filled, more meaningful, and more YOU.

But it’s more than a job – it’s our passion.

We didn’t have the elopement that we wish we had 6+ years ago, and we definitely didn’t get the photos that we wanted.

But if we can help you have those things, that makes us feel a little bit better, because we know how it feels to miss out on that experience.

Who are we?

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

We'll help you have an elopement that you'll never forget

a day that is relaxed, adventurous, or whatever you want it to be

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.”


“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. 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!”


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!”
