fun. energetic. natural.

Adventure is just a word. Working with me? That’s a feeling. From the moment you inquire, it’s my goal to make you comfortable. I know where to take you, how to plan your day, and will surround you with the kind of energy that makes you excited today, tomorrow, and every day after.

Oh yeah, and as far as Tahoe goes? No one knows it better than me.

REAL TALK: I LIVE IN MY HIKING BOOTS + PATAGONIA PUFFY.

I really love this life. I mean - hanging out with people on their best days in Tahoe and beyond? WHAT THE HECK. BEST JOB EVER.

I believe that my couples deserve the best version of me - the one who freaks out over perfect light and jumps up and down when we get to the top of the mountain.

I am a born and raised Lake Tahoe native. I’ve got grit & adventure in my blood. My nickname is “firecracker” - and I take pride in being your #1 fan on your big day.

If inviting me to be your 3rd wheel sounds like a good time, you should email me, stat. I’ll get back to you within the hour (unless it’s 2am or I’m out of cell service, #mountains, dude) and then we get to start dreaming.

Did you know that the average traditional wedding produces SIX HUNDRED (yes, like 6-0-0) pounds of TRASH?!
Dude. That’s a lot of waste, a lot of debt, and a lot of stress. I shoot elopements not only because I know first hand how good I felt on my elopement day, but also because I saw how much I could reduce my footprint just by opting to do what I wanted instead of what was expected.

DITCHING TRADITION IS KIND OF SCARY, AND I GET IT.

Flipping the bird to traditions and expectations can be scary AF.

Yes, I said it. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it - you could be the most excited to elope, but have this twinge of “is this the right move?” tugging at your heart. I get it.

I’m here to help you, and when I say I want to be your #1 fan, I mean it.

I want to empower you to follow your heart, chase this dream and have the best freaking day ever - YOUR WAY.

Heck, I’ll even help you write a letter to your great aunt Margaret telling her that you’re eloping. Why? Because eloping is the most liberating thing in the whole world, and this is coming straight from the mouth of someone who did it herself. No one should make you question something that you want. I don’t just “know how it goes” because I shoot elopements - but because I had one too. Which is why there is an entire page dedicated to the questions you have.

I am no stranger to the fears, worries and doubts. But I am here to tell you: it is worth it, and you will find total joy in the decision to spend your day doing whatever you want.
