Truth is, I believe tiny weddings are the best way for you to truly be yourself on your wedding day.

I love empowering you do so. Eloping could have a handful of loved ones with you, or just the two of you. I’ve documented weddings on all ends of the spectrum & the way people feel when saying their vows privately to one another and having a wedding based on intention can’t be topped. The connection you two have during the entire day without being interrupted by other events is the absolute best. Eloping no longer means secret & shame. It is a powerful stance of saying ‘no thanks’ to the pressures of the wedding norms & takes courage. It’s about taking back the meaning of your ceremony & making it about your unique relationship. It’s about having an amazing story that is the intention, promises, & foundation of your lives together.


I just happen to be lucky enough to document your unique day without missing those important frames that will matter to you in 20yrs.

Lucky enough to help you plan your important celebration, plan your locations & day, & really be there for you entirely. I fell insanely grateful that we get to jump up & down together when the sunlight is hitting the mountains just right, climb up that volcano together, tell your story through what I see happening in those moments, & usually end up crying behind the camera as you pour your guts out to each other. Who wouldn’t feel lucky?? I get to bring the magic and you get to relax and have a rad time.

This is the part I’m supposed to tell you how much coffee I drink, flew a total of 3.58x’s around the Earth last year, that I play roller derby, that I fricken’ love cats, or used to be a Production Coordinator for GIANT NYC productions. But that’s not important. What’s important is that you can trust me with your dreams, with guiding you along the way, & with giving you my heart and soul every second of your wedding. You can get help planning every little detail if you want it, you can have the stress taken off your plate, & you will have someone to help you walk down that slope without eating shit. You’ll always have quick communications & a friend to bounce ideas off of. You want to know the best breweries & restaurants? I got you.




As an elopement guide,
I believe in bringing your dreams to life.
Creating a space for intention, love, & a unique celebration experience for your wedding.

Empowering you to the wedding that feels right & telling your beautiful story.
And, making some wizardly magic for you.
