"What an experience of a lifetime~ My now husband and I had been scouring the internet for a potential elopement photographer and am so glad to have come across Natasha. My husband and I were pretty anxious with the idea of having a photographer, but upon our first consultation we felt like she bridged that gap and was so relatable, personable, and seemed very passionate about the value of her work.

Natasha is definitely more than just your photographer, she's your support system and your hype man. She eased our nerves and made the whole day feel easy. After struggling with the tedious process of lacing up my wedding dress and putting on my veil, she came to the rescue. When my husband's boutonniere kept falling, she helped with that. She showed us the best way of opening the champagne bottle. As someone who was very anxious, very shy, very new to this whole process, I highly recommend her to anyone planning on eloping."

I loved working with Natasha! She was incredibly helpful and put me at ease. She captured our day effortlessly, the big moments that we planned for, but also all the special moments in between, too. She is a true professional and does beautiful work. Natasha will help make sure the memories from your day last a lifetime.

Natasha did a phenomenal job photographing our wedding. She captured the joy and raw emotions. Our friends and family are raving about Natasha's photographs, and one said that they are the most beautiful wedding pictures they had ever seen. We look forward to working with Natasha to capture our special occasions in the future.

When you hire Natasha, not only are you hiring an excellent photographer, but you are also hiring a creative and invested professional that cares about curating the experience that meets (exceeds) your vision and design. Leading up to the engagement, I revised my plan multiple times. Each time, Natasha was there to offer insights into how to best capture the moment according to lighting, location, and timing. We worked together via a video call and screen share to walk through the exact coordinates of the proposal and coordinate meeting times and locations.

REAL COUPLES

Elopement Myths vs. Reality

"Elopements are less meaningful than traditional weddings"

When the focus is entirely on the couple and their commitment to each other, this allows for even deeper emotional and memorable memories. You decided to go against the grain and get married exactly how you'd like and that should be celebrated! 

While elopements can simply be holding a quick ceremony to make it officially locked in, imagine it going past the "1 - 2 hours" you may believe is best for your wedding day. Think past an "all day photoshoot" and lean into the idea of an elopement experience. Paint a picture of your favorite day together. How would you envision that? Those monotonous moments, as quiet as they are, should be cherished. All the while tying the knot in between it all. 

"Elopements are known to be more inexpensive than large weddings

Yes, you can go to a courthouse and get legally married for $25 - $125 and that's beautiful in itself! However, if your passions lie in celebrating your official anniversary date in an authentic way, choosing an elopement experience will still, on average, be around 1/4 of the price of a large traditional wedding. Natasha's elopement packages start at $3,500 with 4 hours of elopement photography. 

While elopements historically mean running away and getting married in secret, it has evolved to so much more. Your elopement today allows a handpicked crew of those most important to you to witness your loving celebration. Who would you include on a day as special as your elopement?

"elopements mean no celebration with loved ones" 

"Elopements are easier than planning a large wedding"

"Elopements are only quick courthouse ceremonies

Yes, elopements in general are typically more stress-free, skip the fuss, days that only require the attention from a handful of attendees. However, planning for a fully customized day still requires months of coordination with various travel logistics, unpredictable weather conditions and multiple vendors. Being optimistically flexible is essential in planning a day as intentional and personal as your next experience! 

"We have to hike for hours to get to a nice location"

Where my adventure-ish couples at?? You'd be surprised how many "we'll meet in this parking lot and walk 5 minutes to this view-point" locations there are that you'd never expect! Don't get me wrong, I'll lace up those hiking boots in a heart beat but if lugging your wedding attire up a mountain for 2 hours doesn't seem like the best fit, finding a pull off location moments away is easy-peasy!
