Elopement Photography Packages

I’ve been photographing elopements in nature since 2012. One of the first photographers to realize that big weddings aren’t for everyone. That eloping in the gorgeous outdoors can create meaningful stories that you’ll remember for a lifetime.

Hourly Elopement Coverage

What’s included in the elopement packages?

  • Fully Edited Digital Files (High Resolution)
  • Private Online Gallery with easy download options
  • Print Release allowing you to print images anywhere
  • Built-in print store to print through my favorite pro lab
  • Personal use of images online (social media / etc)

Assistance with Planning + Vendors + Timeline

All of our elopement packages include our assistance with the planning of your elopement experience. Of the highest importance to the photography, is helping with your timeline. This will make sure that not only the light and conditions are optimal throughout the day, but that you have a stress-free experience. We can also recommend our favorite vendors from past elopements (officiants, hair + makeup, florists, cakes, dresses, etc).

We also keep a list of the top vendors that we’d like to work with around the Western states.

Elopement Permits

Permits are required for most National, State, and City parks. We’ll walk you through the requirements and process to acquire any required permits for your elopement. We also have a list of locations that don’t require permits, which can be useful if you’re planning an elopement in a short timeframe. All permit costs are additional to the above packages.

Covid Update

We’re limiting our travel for 2020/2021 and only taking elopements that are outdoors and socially distanced. We’re also driving to most elopements from Portland to limit outside contact. We test ourselves before all elopements and wear masks while working.

Oregon Elopement Locations

Here is a list of our favorite Oregon elopement locations. We also have a private location list that we can share with couples that have signed a contract. We do this to limit the chance these special locations are over trafficked in the future.
