You? You’re the kind of person that gets a lil’ teary looking at an epic view
Landscapes help you see how big the world is and make you grateful for your place in it. For the opportunity to live and grow and love on this earth.
How do I know that? Because I feel that way, too.
My favorite thing (besides my husband and fox red lab, Cooper), is the feeling of sharing a magical place with someone I know will find it special.
That moment when you turn to the person you’re with and ask, “Are you seeing this?” I live for it. Places with trees and mountains and soft breezes that make you say, “I can’t believe this place exists,” I spend pretty much all of my free time searching for and exploring them.
These places have always felt like home to me. And if you’re the kind of person who also feels more at home surrounded by trees than by people? Then we’ll get along really well. California, Oregon, and Washington are full of secret spots that are too special to share with just anyone. But it would make me happy to share them with you on your wedding day.
THIS IS WHAT YOUR ELOPEMENT COULD LOOK LIKE.
YES, I’M SERIOUS.
CAN I BE HONEST WITH YOU ABOUT SOMETHING?
I regret the way I did my wedding day (peep the wedding photo).
Don’t get me wrong, I love my husband. Wouldn’t change that part. 😉
But we feel most connected when we’re looking at forests and mountains together, not when we’re surrounded by family and friends. So it didn’t make sense for us to spend all that money on a day that didn’t feel like… us.
I want you to have a day that you won’t regret. Whether that means I need to hike to the waterfall ahead of time to scout out angles or research the best flower vendors and henna artists in Big Sur so you don’t have to, I’m excited to give you a day that’s actually about you.
THE ALL-IN ELOPEMENT EXPERIENCE FOR EVERY COUPLE
EVERYTHING I DO TO HELP YOU PLAN YOUR ELOPEMENT
01. PERSONALIZED LOCATION LISTS
Jaw-dropping landscapes are kind of my thing. And those hidden gem locations? I know how to find them.
Upon booking, you’ll be sent an in-depth questionnaire that I’ve perfected over the last three years. Your answers help me see your elopement vision and choose locations made specifically for the two of you, whether that’s on top of a mountain or on a sandy beach.
02. VENDOR, LODGING, AND ACTIVITY RECOMMENDATIONS
Contacting and getting quotes from vendors is time consuming, which is why I do the dirty-work for you. Give me a budget and I’ll find vendors perfect for you. The same goes for lodging and activities! Zip-lining anyone?
P.S. Want me to actually book the vendors? Consider my all-inclusive elopement packages.
03. PERMIT AND LICENSE ASSISTANCE
The last thing you need to stress about is obtaining your permits and licenses, which is why I do it for you. I will send you everything you need to know about how to apply for a location permit (if applicable) as well as a marriage license.
And if you’re really lost… don’t sweat it. I’ll fill out the applications and send the pick-up information your way.
04. TIMELINES ON TIMELINES ON TIMELINES
How much photo coverage do I need? When is the best time of day to get that dreamy light? When should we have our ceremony to avoid the crowds?
Having shot 100+ elopements, I know a thing or two about building a seamless timeline. I’ll send you a questionnaire to help me build a day based around the most important aspects of your day.
“Working with Brianna was simply amazing. She’s more than just a photographer, she’s a full on elopement planner.”
So… what’s it like to have me follow you around with a camera?
The short answer: not as weird as it sounds.
The long answer: I’m pretty quiet behind the camera and take on a much more documentary kind of approach. You being authentic together is what I’m most excited to capture.
I will probably ask you about your favorite place you’ve ever been (mine’s Olympic National Park), your taste in music (any John Mayer fans out there?), and your dog if you have one (please tell me you have one).
We’ll build breaks and private moments for just the two of you into the day, and I’ll do anything I can to make the experience as special and comfortable as it can be for you.
