Eloping provides the ultimate freedom. The freedom to get married exactly how you want, at the venue you want. The freedom to create an experience that is relaxed, fun, and represents your relationship. The freedom from worrying about pleasing guests and following traditions.
You’ve chosen who you will spend the rest of your life with. Now you get to choose how to celebrate with the elopement experience of your dreams and breathtaking photographs that capture your true love.
I’ll reproduce the smiles, laugh, and tears of this emotional day through photographs you can cherish for a lifetime.
I’m not here to just take photos. I’m also here to relieve stress so you can have fun and feel comfortable in front of the camera. You can rest easy knowing my lens will catch all the organic, intimate moments between you and your partner, freezing them in time for you to relive for the rest of your lives.
Much of my life has been spent traveling through the Western North Carolina mountains, so it’s a privilege and an honor to photograph elopements in a place that means so much to me. The mountains provide an opportunity to have an elopement that is truly stunning.
Want to have the sunrise in the background for a dramatic skyline shot?
I’ll bring the coffee.
Prefer to hike to the top of a snow-covered mountain for a striking winter landscape?
I know the trails.
Fancy being surrounded by the burning colors of Autumn with trees covered in red, yellow, and orange?
We’ll go to an epic grove for just the shot.
And that’s exactly the story I’ll photograph. No conventional, canned, unremarkable photos. As you look at your portraits for years to come, I want them to help you relive the experience. The feel of the wind, the aroma of the pine trees, your partner’s embrace – That is what I provide – not just photos, but a moment frozen in time.
To plan and execute your perfect elopement photos, we’ll need to talk about what that looks like to you. By getting to know you and your inspiration, I’ll create photos that showcase your authentic love story.
If you have a venue or location picked out that’s great! But if you’re unsure and would like to ask about different venues or outdoor location ideas, I’m here to help. I’ve gathered some of the most popular venues and locations and grouped them by theme. You can also rent out an Airbnb or cabin for an intimate elopement without having to leave the house!

This is the fun part! By the time your big day arrives, we will have had so many exchanges everything will be planned out. There won’t be any surprises and things run smoothly. Your elopement in the Western North Carolina Mountains will be everything you dreamt of, with your amazing portraits to immortalize the experience.
The image count is completely dependent on the unique proceedings of each elopement. My goal is always to represent your elopement as authentically as possible through dynamic imagery. On average, assuming you plan to engage in all the traditional customs, I typically deliver around 60-80 images every hour I cover your wedding.
I aim to get all your images edited and delivered to you as quickly as possible while sticking to the gold standard my clients expect from me. Two weeks after we say goodbye we’ll have Sneak Peeks ready for you to look over. We strive to have all your images available in a curated gallery online 45 days after the wedding at the latest.
All of your images are YOURS to keep as soon as I deliver them to you at no charge! After receiving your images in gallery form, you can download them and have them printed by whoever you like! Your gallery will also include a few printing lab recommendations as well.
