The last thing I want as an adventure elopement photographer is for you to feel like you're on an all day photoshoot. Your wedding day is meant to be an experience and I make that my top priority when it comes to capturing your day. Your gallery will be filled with images of authentic memories and connection, not awkward and intrusive posing

If you don't want to hike on your wedding day, your elopement is not any less of an adventure! I customize location options to what you feel comfortable with and can advise you on Colorado terrain and weather. From hiking 14ers to driving to a gorgeous mountain lake, together we will dream up the perfect option for you! No matter the degree of adventure, we do our best to practice Leave No Trace principles and respect the land as we explore and admire.

about rachel

Think of your stereotypical Coloradoan and you've basically just described my life. I wear chacos, practice yoga, drink craft beer, and even drive a Subaru. I've always had a big love for the outdoors and find any excuse to explore. Especially with my 3 little boys (and hubby) who seem to take after me being happiest in nature's playground.

Those boys are my wildest adventure! Spending my days chasing them around, dealing with classic toddler tantrums and the everlong battle of keeping their pants on. WHY IS THIS SO HARD?? All jokes aside, being a mom has opened my heart in a whole new way. These boys have put things into perspective and help me to focus on what matters most. A principle I carry into daily life and business and why I resonate so deeply with photographing intimate weddings and elopements. These days are so special to me, so authentic, and so meaningful.

I can't think of a better prerequisite for being an adventure elopement photographer. I'm always packing snacks and can handle any hiccup because #mommagic

"Everybody's best friend." That's how I've been described throughout my life. I think it's because I value genuine relationships and thrive in intimate settings. It's who I am and a huge reason I'm so passionate about what I do. Photographing intimate wedding days is so personal. I love showing up to your adventure elopement and connecting with both of you, it makes the whole taking your photos thing a million times more comfortable. I'm more like a friend there to help you have the best day ever and I just happen to catch it on camera.
