Your wedding should be about you, not about the guest list.
DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
Your friends and family are pressuring you into splurging on that decadent table setting or a Pinterest-worthy sign shaped like a heart when you’re already so overwhelmed with the details and cost of planning a big wedding.
Well guess what?
Your love story certainly isn’t about your Aunt Sharon or your second cousin Doug or even your own mother. Your wedding shouldn’t be, either.
Eloping is about taking in the view and taking on life together. It’s about sharing a special experience.
Above all, it’s about the two of you.
What does THE PERFECT ELOPEMENT LOOK LIKE?
It looks like you and your person doing what you love.
Taking a hot tub soak in the morning, getting all dressed up, and having a first look in the mountains, perhaps?
Then, a special ceremony at dusk with your toes in the sand.
Maybe zip-lining through the forest and laughing together as the wind rushes through your hair.
And the next day? Even more adventurous and special moments. Because how often do you get an excuse to really indulge in what makes the two of you happy? And what better way to celebrate taking on life together than to have fun and make genuine memories with each other?
OF COURSE YOU CAN BRING YOUR DOG.
Or your fave pair of hiking boots, or meaningful notes from friends and family, or literally anything else you love.
Have I mentioned yet that this day is about you?
MY ELOPEMENT PACKAGES ARE DESIGNED WITH YOU IN MIND
Which is why I have a process to help you figure out what you want (and help you get it all booked), because let’s be honest… if you’ve never planned an elopement, you probably don’t know what’s out there. Let me show you what your options are so you can choose what’s best for you.
Step 1: Tell me what’s important to you
Maybe there’s a place you and your partner have been dreaming of, and you know it’s where you want to say your vows. Or maybe you’re still deciding on the where, but either way, I’m here to hear and perfect your vision.
Step 2: I send you a whooooole bunch of questions
Are there certain types of scenery that make you feel at peace? What activities bring you joy? What’s the most drool-worthy meal you’ve ever eaten? What did falling in love feel like for the two of you?
Step 3: YOU RELAX, WHILE I TAKE CARE OF THE DETAILS
You should get to spend the time leading up to your wedding day connecting with one another, not calling florists to compare pricing options or researching location permits. That’s what I’m here for. Details are kind of my thing.
MEET YOUR ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER
I’m Brianna, and this is my cute dog Cooper, a.k.a my elopement planning sidekick. I’m a California elopement photographer who also happens to be a total detail-oriented perfectionist (enneagram 1 AND Capricorn here).
I believe the day you exchange vows should be the best day of your life. I’ve photographed countless couples all around the world, who just like you, wanted something different than just another wedding day.
Using questionnaires, phone calls, and so much more, I help craft unforgettable and completely personalized elopement days for each of my couples around the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
EVERYTHING INCLUDED IN EACH AND EVERY ELOPEMENT PACKAGE
THE ALL-IN ELOPEMENT EXPERIENCE FOR EVERY COUPLE
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.

“She’s a full on elopement planner.”
“Brianna is more than just a photographer, she’s a full on elopement planner. She took our vision for an elopement in Lake Tahoe and ran with it, coordinating everything along the way. She found us the perfect place to get married by a beautiful waterfall, she found a beautiful secluded beach for our first dance, she gave us great recommendations on hotels to stay in for the best possible wedding experience we could have, and she even provided a hand-picked list of the top officiants to work with in the area. She guided us to the best possible places in Lake Tahoe to get spectacular pictures and made the entire process seamless without intruding on our most special moments in any way.”
“We cannot recommend her enough.”
“Brianna is absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I chose her all-inclusive package, which included the photography and pricing/booking of all the vendors. She got to know us and our preferences, then took it from there! Brianna covers everything you could possibly need or want for your elopement, and she is very flexible and knowledgeable. She made our elopement experience so easy-going and stress-free, which we were extremely grateful for. She is so natural, genuine, and “go with the flow” — her energy made our whole day and doing the photoshoots so much fun! In general, our entire wedding day was just amazing and her photography skills are immaculate. We received our sneak-peek and official gallery quicker than expected, and my husband & I felt that she captured who we are as a couple perfectly! Overall, Brianna is wonderful to work with and we cannot recommend her enough.”
“Her attention to detail cannot be beat.”
“If your looking for your elopement photographer YOU JUST FOUND HER! Brianna is an incredibly talented and detailed photographer with an amazing work ethic. She was easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions I had. Her attention to detail, particularly when it came to day of timeline, cannot be beat and her ability to keep everyone on track with a positive and upbeat attitude made the event a success. The photos I received captured the details of each shoots style and couple while staying true to the colors of the setting. She is a total pleasure to work with.”
