Elopement Recommendations

Thank you so much for choosing me to be your elopement  photographer! I’m so looking forward to capturing the wonderful moments and personality of your celebration.


If you are still searching for a location for your wedding, I have several outdoor locations and venues that I’ve photographed at before or earmarked for future sessions. Depending on the size and season of your wedding, what kind of natural scenery you love most, or if you need any additional amenities, I can help with further narrowing down options. Some locations (*) may require additional permits, fees, or travel.

I do my best to help your wedding be the smoothest celebration possible, and hopefully your other wedding vendors have the same goal! These are some of my favorite wedding professionals that I’ve either worked with before or bonded over a similar approach to weddings and our clients. For information on vendors’ current prices and availability, please contact them directly to find out if they’re a good fit for your wedding.

Champagne at wedding receptionOver my years of photographing larger weddings, I also have recommendations for musicians, DJs, caterers, videographers, and more. If you are looking for something not on this list, please ask and I may know the perfect vendor.

I hope this helps! I will be updating it periodically as I work with new vendors, and please feel free to share anyone you’ve hired that you’d like me to add to the list. Here’s to a wonderful wedding day!
