We believe your wedding day should be your

Best Adventure Yet


What do we mean by that?

We don't mean you have to scale a mountain, go on some crazy hike, or jump out of a plane (unless you want to!) "Your best adventure yet" means it's your day to celebrate your love in a way that you want. This day is so special. So meaningful.

We want to help you take it back for yourselves. No rules. No limits. No expectations.

"Amy is an artist.."

"There are people who can take nice pictures, and then there is Amy. Amy is an artist. She has an amazing ability to convey emotion through her photographs to create the story of your day. So when you look at the photos, they are not just a staged moment in time but they transport you back to that time with all feelings that you experienced. For me, Amy was more than a photographer. She helped me fulfill my vision for my wedding."

"You really feel like you gained a best friend through the process."

"Hiring Amy was hands down my best decision for making our wedding day such a special experience. After our phone consultation my excitement for the planning process went through the roof! I hadn't laughed that hard with a stranger, maybe ever. You really feel like you gained a best friend through the process."

You're not alone.

 

The top 5 reasons our couples elope.

 

to escape

WEDDING STRESS

Planning a wedding involves a lot of time, energy and money. The sheer number of decisions you have to make can be overwhelming. Add everyone's opinions and expectations, and a lot of couples realize a traditional wedding just isn’t for them. 


to avoid

FAMILY DRAMA

For a lot of people, the idea of being around all of their family on their wedding day is really stressful. Whether it's family tension, lack of support, or simply unwanted opinions, many couples elope so that they can celebrate their love without all of the negative and stressful feelings.

 

for the

insane photos


 

Is there any comparison here? It’s really hard to get married in a wedding venue when you could exchange vows in the mountains, on a dramatic cliff, or on a gondola in Venice. How about standing on an Alaskan glacier? Or under the northern lights? 


because

to hell with

THE WORD "sHOULD"

More couples are comfortable admitting they want the day to be their own. They want to dream big without rules or other people's expectations.  Should we do this? Aren't we supposed to do that? WHO CARES?!  Eloping means you get to do what makes sense for you and your values. To hell with the rest.

because they value

EXPERIENCES

Most eloping couples would rather invest in an experience instead of a wedding. Combining an elopement ceremony with a bucket-list destination is the perfect way to embrace the adventure and experience that they value so much.


We know how much this day

to you

and we love that about you
