You don't want the stress or frustrations.

You want the most epic day ever.

You want a wedding day to feel true to you.

Everyone's epic day looks different. When you elope, the options are endless. This could be exploring a new National Park, hiking to your favorite viewpoint, or renting an incredible Airbnb for your closest family and friends to celebrate with you. Whatever it is, it should be about you.

And guess what, you don't need to have them! By focusing on your priorities, the entire process from planning all the way to your day can exciting and fun. Most couples leave our consult calls feeling a breath of relief. That’s how you’ll feel throughout the entire process.

I hear this all the time from couples, which is what eloping is all about. It's about creating an experience that is uniquely you - from the experience, location, details and more.

you deserve the most beautiful day

I will keep you present. Remind you of the things that matter most. Give you ideas you may never have thought of. I'll cheer you on as you make your daydream a reality. While giving you the real moments and memories to look back on forever.

"She is everything you’re looking for in a photographer and more. She’s a logistics partner, advice giver, friend, and beyond. If you’re looking for someone to capture the magic of your day and your relationship in a real way, hire her."

hey there, I'm Kels!

I’m your friendly travel-loving elopement photographer. I have ample experience with non traditional wedding days. Basically, they're my jam. My bread and butter. Well, you get the point.

My goal is to empower couples to create a day that feels true to them, which is how your once in a lifetime wedding day should be.

Before you keep scrolling, there's one more thing you should know.

Elopements are different than many people may be used to. They are much more intimate. And guess what? The photographer you choose is with you not just for the entire day - but the moment you start the process of planning, the day of, and after. It's really important to find someone who can fit right in.

an ordained officiant

A lot of my couples want seclusion and privacy, so they are excited to find out I am ordained and can sign their marriage papers!

yeah, that's what's included...

but you're going to get a lot more than that with me.

ELOPEMENT KNOWLEDGE

because I'm all about the experience.

After helping 100+ real eloping couples, I know a thing or two to make sure you are taken care of. Things like how to carry your bouquet up the mountain, pack your attire, how to run a 'just us' ceremony, and a whole lot more.

If you are looking to have an intimate day all about you and your partner, elopements are an amazing way to do this. Elopements can be just the two of you, or up to 20 of your closest family and friends. The world is full of adventurous locations - think the White Mountains of NH, National Parks around the US, the rolling hills of Ireland, and more.

Do we have to climb a mountain to hire you?

04

01

Do you travel? What are the travel fees?

No you do not! You should get married in a place that is special to you. Whether that's in the mountains, at the ocean, by a waterfall, or in a backyard, whatever you want is what I want. However! If you do want the mountains, I have plenty of locations that will give you that without a strenuous hike!

Yes, I absolutely travel. While I'm based in New Hampshire, there's nothing more that I love than documenting others adventures. I've traveled to over 30 countries and 30 states, so I am experienced in the travel industry. Because of this, all travel is included in all of my packages - one less thing you need to worry about!

So you're also a planner? We don't need to hire one?

05

I want to elope, but I want family there. Is that possible?

02

I am not a planner. The planning I do is in terms of finding an outdoor location, vendor recommendations and guidance to forming your perfect day. A true planner will take all the planning off your chest and allow you to be present on your day. I have some awesome planners I can recommend and even a day of coordinator on my team that you can add on.

Yes! It is absolutely possible. I love when family and friends are present! For elopements, you can have up to 20 of your favorite people, while with intimate weddings is anything under 40 guests. So do not stress, you can definitely have those you love at your day!

How far in advance should we book you?

03

Do you take on larger weddings?

I typically open my calendar in April for the following year, meaning I book between 12-18 months out. The most popular months I book are June, September and October, and those generally book up the quickest. So if you are looking for those, I highly recommend trying to book within 9 months.

Nope! I specialize in elopements and intimate weddings and am no longer taking on larger scale weddings. There are some incredible traditional wedding photographers out there that specialize in them!
