    Elopement Photography Packages

    Gone are the days when eloping was a shameful, tacky, last-minute rebellious thing to do. Modern couples choose to elope so they can have an intimate wedding day that is truly about their love and their commitment to each other. You let go of all the over-the-top displays, the obligatory traditions, and the small talk, and you’re left with what really matters.

    How many times have you heard

    a newlywed couple say:

    “I hardly remember anything,”

    “I didn’t get a chance to talk to anyone,”

    “It was all a blur.”

    I’m here to tell you

    it doesn’t have to be that way.

    Your wedding day doesn't have to be one long string of events, being whisked from place to place with no chance to enjoy the fleeting moments or be present with the ones you love most.

    If you’re ready to ditch the clichés and create a wedding day that’s all about YOU and YOUR unique love, keep scrolling to learn more!

    I am more than just another vendor showing up to do a job.

    I show up for you HARD on your wedding day so you can just relax. I will free you up to soak in every moment while my brain is going 100 miles an hour making sure I don't miss any of the mushy goodness you want to remember. I'll stay out of the way and let the day unfold naturally—cross my heart I won't make you do cheesy poses that don't feel like you.

    I promise to tell you when you have lipstick on your teeth and fix your hair if it's doing something weird. I'll re-fluff your dress like a madwoman for every shot because you're only wearing that thing once and it better look good! I'll run and grab you a mimosa while your hair is getting done. Consider me an auxiliary bridesmaid with a camera.

    Your experience with me is just as important as the photos I give you.

    The photos I take will remind you how you felt–and that's why it's so important to me to make you feel like yourself in front of the camera.

    I give you your space during the intimate moments (like when you say your vows), and I pop back in to offer advice when it's time for portraits. I put you at ease so you feel free to be who you are together. I get that you’re not models (yet), so I’ll give you direction to make you super comfy in front of the camera so we can get those killer shots!

    Why your elopement deserves all day coverage

    Your elopement is JUST as important and meaningful as a big traditional wedding, and I want you to remember everything about your day, from start to finish. The day you elope will be the start of your marriage and your anniversary every year. This is one gigantic milestone and it deserves to be documented with the same care and attention of a traditional wedding. I don’t want to be a stranger showing up for a photoshoot for a couple hours in the middle of the day–I want to be immersed in your day and document the moments from beginning to end, so you’ll always remember every detail of the day you committed your lives to each other. I promise I won’t hijack your day, or ask for fake smiles or awkward poses. I’m there to document you two having the best day of your lives!

    Sarah is a dream to work with. She shot my engagements and bridals, and we absolutely loved the photos. She’s truly an artist, catching those perfect moments through shots that leave you breathless. She captured the laughs, the intimacy and that look he gives me that makes me fall in love all over again. And she does it with charm and humor and professionalism. Thank you!!


    Sarah was the perfect photographer for us. She completely understood us and captured our personalities in each photo. On the day of our wedding, she was a true gift. She corralled our huge family and wedding party like a pro, captured all the shots we requested, and made sure there was plenty of time to get couple shots. The final product was excellent -- we love our wedding photos and are so thankful Sarah was able to capture so many genuine moments of joy and fun.


    Sarah is amazing! Not only she is an incredible photographer, but she is such a sweet and kind person. Her positive energy and happy demeanor made the whole experience so easy and comfortable. She remembered every single shot we had discussed previously and made sure we took them during the wedding. We had such a hard time picking our photographer and now looking back at our day and at the pictures, we can't imagine anyone better!


    As a first time bride with a lot of anxiety about being photographed, I can honestly say Sarah was an absolute dream to work with and more than compensated for my complete incompetence ("where do I put my hands?!") Sarah was gracious and kept a good sense of humor throughout, which was much appreciated - especially when a hailstorm broke out in the middle of our couples shoot :) I couldn't be happier with her service as well as the quality of the photographs. Well worth the price for capturing such a special day!
