Let's plan this together! Still have questions? Here are some common questions we get about elopements + photography How far in advance should we book our elopement with you? That really depends on the season, but the earlier the better! Most couples book with us 9-12 months in advance, so our schedule tends to fill up around then. How does the process work after we contact you? 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! How much do you help us with planning the elopement? 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! How many guests can be at our elopement / intimate wedding? 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 a thousand guests. If you don’t want the pressure of a full-blown wedding, don’t want to conform to the expectations of hundreds guests, and would rather have a day that is 100% focused on you & your marriage… You should elope. Your wedding doesn’t have to fit into society’s mold. Get married in a way that truly reflects you.
