Nice to meet you...

we're dan + Laura

A day that is more adventurous, more memory-filled, more meaningful, and more YOU.

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 document the moments as they unfold.

If you forced us to put a percentage to it, photography probably only accounts for about 30-40% 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 ->

  • Have a stress-free experience planning the best day of your life

    Locations, lodging, permits, timeline, ceremony, vendors... We'll help with it all.

  • Have a meaningful, intimate ceremony that reflects your relationship

    Dan is an ordained officiant, so you can have your marriage ceremony just about ANYWHERE.

  • Have the adventure of a lifetime in your favorite location

    Whether you want to tie the knot on a 5,000' summit or on a boat off the shore of Greece... we'll help you pick a location that just feels right.

  • Have a blast with photographers who care SO MUCH

    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 things we "officially" do...

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

  • Helping to carry extra gear (backpacks, garment bags, etc.) on the hike
  • Scouting out locations to find the BEST spots for photos
  • Keeping you warm by pre-heating hand warmers, giving you an extra pair of socks, and sharing our coats
  • Helping you into your dress in our pop-up changing tent on the summit
  • Tying your tie and pinning your boutonniere
  • Making coffee (instant coffee tastes 10x better at 5,000ft) & sharing snacks on the summit

...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.”

"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!”

but are the pictures the best part?

well, that's for you to decide.
