PRICING & INFORMATION

 

For weddings, elopements, and photo shoots in Virginia, The US, and all over the world.

 

while my specialty lies in photographing adventures in Shenandoah National Park, almost my entire life has been spent traveling, and so I’d love to help photograph your adventure wherever in the world it may be.

ELOPEMENTS AREN’T WHAT THEY USED TO BE :

Elopements aren’t so taboo anymore. Now they’re more about intimacy and having your wedding day being exactly who you are. No unnecessary stuff. The best part about an elopement is it can be the two of you or you can include the people in your life you can’t imagine having a wedding without.

So if you just imagine the two of you taking a hike and keeping it peaceful, or if you imagine your wild family along and enjoying the local brews and dancing late into the night, it’s completely up to you and how far your imagination can take you! As long as it’s intimate (that can mean tons of guests) and stress-free and exactly how you imagine it, that’s all that matters.

Here I call them Adventure Weddings.

Whatever your adventure looks like (because not all of them are intense) if it’s a rainy day at home, hiking 16 miles, finding a cozy cabin, exploring the local scene, going kayaking. Whatever an adventure looks like to you, that’s what your wedding day should be.

 

 

What is the difference between an adventurous wedding and a traditional wedding?

A traditional wedding is normally made up of traditions that have made their way down this line that have turned into to-do lists and a strict timeline : 200 guests, a venue, bridesmaids and groomsmen, centerpieces, seating charts, a seated dinner, a bouquet and garter toss, the cha-cha slide, and being done by 10:00 pm.

An adventurous wedding is literally whatever you imagine.

If that means staying close to home, or traveling far away in the backyard of an Airbnb, or hiking at sunrise, or floating down the river, or a campfire and a barbecue, playing your own favorite music, no timeline, a weekend away, just the two of you, your best friends, or your family members. It’s taking the things that make you who you are, the things you love to do together, your favorite place in the whole entire world, and making it happen. No list of photographs that must be taken, no rushing to dinner, no fancy show to put on for anyone.

How to Have an Adventurous Wedding :

One

Start by making a list of the things you love to do together. Do you love bicycling? Do you love cooking? Do you love exploring big cities, or small towns? Do you love hiking, or fishing, or swimming?

Two

Then imagine your favorite place to be. Is it at your grandparent’s home? The Blue Ridge Mountains? The beach? Cliffs in Ireland? In a hammock? Somewhere you’ve never been? Or some place familiar?

Imagine who you love spending your time with. Is it just the two of you? Are your pets there? Is it your best friends? Your family?

Put it together, and what have you got?
The best wedding day. Ever.

 

ADVENTURE WEDDING PRICING

Just because your wedding doesn’t seem traditional doesn’t make it any less important than every other wedding day. You deserve a photographer who can capture you getting ready in the morning, the hike to your ceremony spot, your beers and barbecue, and your camp-side dance at the end of the day.

WHAT COULD A FULL-DAY ADVENTURE WEDDING LOOK LIKE?

  • Getting ready together & drinking your coffee in your cabin, tent, or cottage.

  • Seeing the sunrise (or sunset)

  • Saying your vows with an incredible view

  • Photos together as you explore and play in the mountains, rivers, or valleys

  • Going back to your cabin to cook together, enjoying coffee, jumping in the water, and dancing by the river

Whatever you imagine for your wedding day, whether it’s just the two of you or you have guests, I want to help you plan and remember the best day ever.

WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU BOOK?

  • A photographer who will help you plan your incredible wedding day and brainstorm with you to plan something extraordinary - who will wake up at any hour, carry lanterns, hike, and jump in the water with you to get the most epic photos ever and make sure your wedding day is exactly who you are.

  • Lists of amazing local vendors you may need for your day - bakers, florists, caterers, breweries, wine-bars, hotels, and AirBnB’s.

  • Lists of locations where you can stay, hike, have your ceremony, and explore - based on your interests and how you want to spend your day.

  • An online gallery where you will receive all the best photos artistically edited in color and black&white

  • An attached shop where you can order professional quality albums, prints, frames to share with friends & family

  • Digital downloads with print & social media release for personal use, to share, print, and enjoy as you please!
