AN INTENTIONAL + EPIC ELOPEMENT EXPERIENCE 

Imagine that you've just woken up, it's your elopement day! The emotions are buzzing and you lay out your attire on the bed at your Airbnb. You're doing this, it's happening!!!!

Later on you meet up for breakfast after getting ready and you have a quick bite to eat before heading out on the trail. The morning air is warm and the fog is just clearing off. You know the sun is just about to come out.

You head out with your honey on the trail you picked out months ago leading up to the best views you've ever seen in your entire life. The sun is just peeking out from over the mountains and an eruption of color appears as you say your vows together. You look into your partner's eyes and breath out those two words you've been waiting forever to say.

"Rae is one of the kindest souls you’ll meet, and she’s extremely talented. Working with her throughout our wedding planning experience was an absolute joy and she communicated with us every step of the way; there wasn’t a point in time where we ever felt lost or confused about the photography aspect of our big day which is a BIG plus for us. Her turn around time in getting photos back was beyond quick, but you can tell she still puts so much effort into making sure every final image she delivers is perfect. It was nice to have someone who wasn’t just a photographer, but became someone who we consider a friend of ours too.

WHAT IS AN ELOPEMENT?

ELOPEMENTS ARE AN INTIMATE, INTENTIONAL WAY OF GETTING MARRIED!

They are not running away, shamefully to tie the knot and not telling your family - in fact, it's the opposite!

With elopements the main focus is YOU but you can absolutely invite your friends and family to come along on your adventure. It's a way of celebrating your love in a meaningful way that reflects your relationship together!

No need to stress over finding the perfect arrangement for tables or cutting back on how many guests you'll need to invite.

IT'S ABOUT CELEBRATING IN A WAY THAT FEELS LIKE YOU! WHICH IS WHY...

I'M HERE TO HELP YOU PLAN THE DAY OF YOUR DREAMS!

I'm your elopement planner, travel expert, adventure BFF, location scouter, logistics coordinator and professional goof wrapped up into one.

I'LL WALK YOU THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS START TO FINISH!

This is the best part of the process as we start to plan your perfect day! My goal is to provide a stress-free experience for each and every couple so that you can be intentional and present during your wedding.

You deserve a day where you can just be you!

So let's dive in!

1. BUILDING OUR CONNECTION

Building a strong client connection is what I'm here for! This whole experience will be 1000% about you and tailored to your specific hopes, dreams and visions for your day. I want to know all about you both, what you love, your passions and what you prioritize. We'll chat about your vision + goals over zoom and then I'll send you a planning questionnaire so you know exactly what to expect going forward. I will not be showing up to your wedding as a stranger and want you both to be relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera! I know you will be able to be yourselves when you're not as stressed!

2. FINDING THE RIGHT LOCATION

I will work with you to find the best location for you both that fits your vision. I love traveling to new places and when I do I go location scouting which means I find the best hidden gems. I also love hiking so whenever I can I get out and hike new trails! Once I get to know you a little better and understand which locations and views you prefer I will send over a detailed location guide to look over!

3. GETTING YOUR DETAILS

The great thing about weddings and elopements is that it gives you the freedom to celebrate your day however you want to! While this is fun and exciting, it can also be a very stressful time but this is where I come in and help you so you can focus on the fun! Not only will I be your elopement photographer I will also work as your planner, officiant, stylist and confidant. Although I'm not qualified for any title except your photographer, I'll work alongside you making sure your day runs as smoothly as possible. I will also send out vendor recommendations and various guides for you to utilize during planning. If you run into something and need a question I will try to answer it to the best of my abilities.

4. DOCUMENTING YOUR STORY

This is my favorite part and will reflect our time getting to know one another! When the day arrives just relax and enjoy your day, I'll take care of the rest! I'll document your moments as they happen so you can be present and intentional on your wedding day. I'll capture all the tiny details you might not have noticed so you can take in every beautiful moment. Afterwards you'll be able to look back on your day and be transported back in time for years to come.

5. AFTER YOUR DAY

So you did the thing and it was beautiful! After your elopement I get to work hand-editing your gallery. Just 48 hours after your day I'll be sending sneak peeks so you can show all your family and friends that couldn't be there to celebrate with you and because you want to see them asap! You can expect the fully edited gallery in just 4 weeks after your elopement.

"No Rules Or Expectations" - A WEDDING DAY THAT'S Intentional AND ALL ABOUT YOU

A ZERO-STRESS WEDDING DAY SO YOU CAN BE PRESENT AND INTENTIONAL

You had me at zero stress! Yes, I will do all of the timeline/scheduling so you don't have to worry about it. You will also have unlimited access to me to ask any questions you might have during the process. I will also work with you to find the perfect location that fits your needs, wants, hopes + dreams!

HELPING YOU PLAN YOUR DREAM WEDDING FULL OF ADVENTURE AND EPIC VIEWS

If you've been dreaming of a wedding day featuring epic views after hiking to the top of a mountain then you're in the right place. I will help you plan your day from start to finish!

AND THE BEST PART IS . . . I DELIVER 30 SNEAK PEEK IMAGES TAKEN AT DIFFERENT MOMENTS OF YOUR DAY, 24 HOURS AFTER SAYING I DO!

You won't find many photographers that offer this amount of images in this time-frame.

I deliver sneak peek images this quickly because when you elope intimately, most of the time it's just you and your honey in the middle of nowhere. Your images represent such an important memory of your day to share with family and friends who weren't there and a few iPhone photos won't do it justice.

I also know that you're going to keep wanting to ride that post wedding high.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT SHOULD WE DO FIRST WHEN PLANNING OUR ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT?

Afterwards, you can choose the one that works best for you!

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH DESTINATION WEDDINGS?

Yes, I travel all over the US + international locations for elopements and weddings. No location is too far!

I WANT TO HAVE A WINTER ELOPEMENT, HOW DOES THIS WORK?

I love wintertime, it's my favorite season!! When planning a Winter elopement there are different activities to think about such as skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, ice climbing, winter hiking etc. Whether you want to winter hike up a mountain or ski down your favorite run, I can help you plan all the deets!!

I LOVE YOUR WORK BUT WE'RE HAVING A LARGER WEDDING, WILL YOU STILL PHOTOGRAPH IT?

Yes! I will absolutely photograph your larger wedding. I do take on a limited amount of larger weddings every year. Let's sit down and chat!

+

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO ELOPE?

This depends on where and when you would like to elope! The best season to elope is Fall/Winter if you love the cold months and prioritize foliage. The Fall/Winter season in New England runs between September-March. If you love warmer months then you should build your elopement timeline around May-August to get those wildflower blooms!

Choosing the right season for your Vermont Elopement

WHICH PACKAGE IS BEST FOR US?

This will depend on how many hours you would like for your day! We will work together during our consult call to pick a package that works for you both and will allow enough time for all the awesome adventures your planning. If you're not sure which package works best you can always go with the Half Day package which is the most popular among my clients.

CAN WE INVITE FRIENDS + FAMILY FOR OUR ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT?

Of course you can! Typically elopements are between 2-20 people so you can absolutely bring your loved ones on board. We will work together to make sure your location is accommodating for everyone you choose to bring with you!

+

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN INTIMATE WEDDING AND ELOPEMENT?

Intimate weddings are anywhere between 20 and 75 guests. They are the same as micro or small weddings! Elopements are between 2-20 people or just you two!
