YOU DECIDED PLANNING A BIG WEDDING WASN’T FOR YOU.

Because you realized that…

  • You wanted to be relaxed instead of stressed.
  • You wanted to plan a day for you, not for others.
  • You wanted a “just us” experience.
  • You wanted an authentic, unique, and intimate wedding day.
  • You wanted a day without all the attention.
  • You wanted stunning images in your favorite place.

YOU CHOSE TO ELOPE INSTEAD,

because at the end of the day, you realized that it’s so much better to

SKIP THE STRESS, TRASH THE TRADITIONS, AND GET MARRIED THE WAY YOU WANT.

BECAUSE YOU REALIZE THAT ELOPING

  • Allows you to be yourself instead of having to put on a fake persona for those in the audience.
  • Allows you to include friends and family, or not. That’s the beauty of eloping!
  • Is eco-friendly. Did you know that the average wedding produces 400 lbs of garbage and 63 tons of CO2?
  • Means you elope and honeymoon in the same destination if you want!
  • Lets you spend money on places you’ve always wanted to visit.
  • Means you can sit back, relax, and let me take care of all the planning.
  • Means you can elope at your favorite place in the world, or explore somewhere new.
  • Allows to completely customize your day. Want to go swimming with sharks or take a pottery class? You can!

THIS MEANS YOU COULD ELOPE HERE.

NO SERIOUSLY, YOU COULD.

WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO HAVE AN ADVENTUROUS WEDDING DAY

CLIENTS WHO HIRED ME AS A CALIFORNIA ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER + PLANNER

“WOULD HIRE AGAIN AND AGAIN!”

Brianna was so much fun to work with! She was very kind, professional, and flexible. Due to COVID, I was constantly changing plans which was difficult, heartbreaking, and stressful to say the least, but Brianna really made an effort to help us! I truly appreciated her bubbly and joyful personality which stayed constant throughout our entire exchange. Brianna also finished our photos 2 days after our wedding! Not only did they come out super fast, but they came out beautifully. If I could re-do my wedding, I would ask Brianna to be our photographer again and again!

“BEST PART OF OUR WEDDING DAY!”

Brianna was the best part of our wedding day! As a bride who is a perfectionist and obsessed with photos, I knew that I needed to find someone that I could trust. Brianna was the perfect photographer! She captured every moment of our day and then some! Brianna is the nicest person that you’ll ever meet and was such a pleasure to work with. She is super responsive and was always open to all of our requests/ideas. Brianna really went above and beyond for my husband and I! All our friends and family members have raved about our engagement/wedding photos. Many have said that they are the best photos that they had ever seen. My husband and I cannot thank Brianna enough for all that she did for us! She worked an extremely long day but never looked tired or stopped smiling. We would highly recommend Brianna and would use her again in a heartbeat. We can’t thank her enough for making our wedding a dream come true.

“INCREDIBLE AND FLAWLESS!”

Brianna did an INCREDIBLE job photographing our wedding! We were so worried about picking a photographer that could handle the harsh Teton light, but Brianna handled it flawlessly! She did great job staying in the shadows (there are some photos I still don’t know how she took because it seemed she was in two places at once) while also guiding us into some truly stunning shots. I loved that Brianna asked ahead if there were any family details (or issues) to account for (something I definitely didn’t think about but think every bride should tell their photographer!). I gave her a list of shots I wanted to be sure I had and she checked every single box. Booking Brianna was so fast and easy and she honestly thought of everything! Her response to COVID-19 was fair and she kept all 2020 clients updated and informed about their options as everything progressed. I would absolutely recommend Brianna Parks Photography to anyone looking to tie the knot! Thanks Brianna!
