On The Fence About Elopeing?

Let our past couples share their experience

For anyone considering an elopement or small wedding, I highly, highly recommend. We wouldn’t have done an adventure elopement without the pandemic, but I’d choose this experience over and over again- the intimacy, experience, tailored to us specifically.

Bailey and Larissa go beyond photography services by helping you plan the perfect day; they provided a comprehensive guide as well as a customized list of location, activity, and vendor options. They’re even able to scout out ceremony locations in person while they’re out traveling for other weddings.

On our elopement day, Bailey was so much fun- her excitement and happiness just added a layer of joy to our day. She kept our timing on track, captured emotions perfectly, and is very skilled at tricky dress buttons and boutonnieres.

Jess & Ken-Ichi

We decided to elope in RMNP because 1. Weddings sound like a huge headache that we didn’t want to mess with and 2. Have you SEEN RMNP?! Gorgeous, enough said.

Even after our first conversation I could tell Larissa was a literal ball of sunshine, she just gave off a warmth that made you feel at ease and when we met in person on the day of our elopement she was the BIGGEST hype girl I’d ever met. I could’ve been out there in a bathrobe and she would’ve had me feeling like I was the best thing since sliced bread. Our families even commented on how wonderful she was as soon as we got to our reception, they all felt like they had known her for years and she brought an extra level of happiness to our big day.

…I wanted to look at these pictures and see [the] love and joy we were feeling that day (corny, but you get it!). Larissa honestly just nailed it on every level, she took advantage of our surroundings and got us some BEAUTIFUL panoramic photos, but she managed to capture the emotion through it all. Our ceremony/family/couple pictures are all a perfect progression of how our wedding day felt. Nothing looks forced or too posed.
