I’d love to be your Oregon elopement and small wedding Photographer.

Elopements have become extremely popular, for good reason. The typical wedding day events can be excessive for some couples. The pressure to create an event for hundreds of guests can be simply too much. Instead, you can sneak off with the one you love and get married on your own terms. These intimate ceremonies are incredibly powerful, the vows you make can be filled with so much emotion because you don’t have a room of all of your friends and family staring at you.

Portland, Oregon Elopement Packages

I offer two elopement packages for the Portland, Oregon area and surrounding states. The first is up to five hours of continuous coverage (hiking and 4×4 trails included). It covers everything from a quick ceremony at City Hall, to more adventurous elopements on the tops of mountains.

My second package is full-day coverage. It is great for more remote locations, elopements with both morning and evening activities, and telling a complete story of your wedding day.

Both packages include personal printing rights to the fully-edited digital files. I deliver the images with an online gallery and digital download. Travel is included for Oregon, Washington, California, and Idaho. Any required permits are additional. Send me a note for full pricing details.

A few favorite elopement stories: Jameykay + Arlie, Michelle + Judson, Redwood Deck, Anya + Rev, and Cannon Beach.

After years of photographing elopements in adventurous locations all around the world, I’ve put together a guide on eloping in the state I call home.

Oregon has become one of the top elopement destinations in the United States, and I can see why.

Other elopement destinations: Big Sur, Yosemite, and Iceland. (See my list of 50+ Elopement Locations here)
