You Decided to Elope!

Let's Cheers To That!
Now we're here to help with the views, the adventure and the day.

Here's What We Help With!

We are wayyyyyy more than just photographers

Finding The Perfect Location

Whether you want that iconic view you can’t get out of your head or an off-the-beaten-path hidden gem, we will use our knowledge, experience and 26+ years of being born and bred Coloradans to help you find THE perfect spot.

Planning A Feels-Like-Us Day

No matter if your eloping just you two or with a few close guests, we will inspire you, guide you and help you plan a day that is fun, intentional and a reflection of who you two are at the core – beers, dogs and all.

Best-Friend Experience

We don’t want your elopement to feel like a full-day photoshoot. Instead, think of it as an adventure with your best friend with some epic, fun and heart-felt photos along the way.

"Bailey really took the time to get to know us both. One thing I love about this small business is that Bailey wanted to make sure WE were the right fit for HER. She knows how intimate photography can be and she made sure that we could bond with her in a way that would produce the best, most comfortable photos...We left that day feeling like we had gained a new friend."

What's The Best Month To Elope In Colorado?


What if we don’t know where we want to Have Our elopement yet?

Our specialty is helping our couples find the perfect spot to say their vows! Most of our couples do not have a location in mind before they book with us. After you book, we’ll send you a location questionnaire to understand what types of locations you’d be dreaming of. Then we use our experience, 27+ years of exploring CO, and research skills to put together a custom location guide with a list of location ideas we think would be right up your alley. (P.S. we also help you with the not-so-fun research on if a permit is needed to get married at your dream location.)

We want to have more than 10 guests at our elopement, can we do that?

You sure can! At 10 guests, we require our couples to reserve a ceremony site with the appropriate park or public land jurisdiction. This way you have a guaranteed location for a larger group and you practice Leave No Trace.

How much coverage do we need if it’s just the two of us?

Our most popular package is the eight hour, half-day elopement. This truly allows enough time to get to know you and have a relaxing time getting ready, explore the location you chose to get married, say your vows, celebrate, and take some epic pictures. Hey, we may even be able to sneak in some blue-light/star photos!

Do you help us find other vendors (like a hair and makeup artist or a florist) that we may need for our elopement day?

Yes! While we are not able to actually book those vendors for you, we certainly help you with recommendations/research on the best vendors that serve the area you choose to elope at.

How important are getting ready photos?

To us, they are a crucial part of getting to know you two and allowing you to see how we work and feel comfortable with us before the BIG moments of your day. Instead of meeting us for the first time when you are literally ready to say your vows and take the most important photos, we love to slowly ease you into our candid and low-key photography style and get to know you as you are getting ready.

During the time you spend getting ready, there's likely to be a lot of feelings and emotions that come up. It's when the day really starts to feel real and is such an important part of your story that deserves to be captured!

Do your prices include travel?

For the most part, yes! Our half-day, full-day and 2-day elopement packages include travel to anywhere in Colorado. Our partial-day small elopement package includes travel up to 150 miles from your photographer. The mini elopement package includes travel up to 90 miles from your photographer. We may ask that you cover a hotel if we have to leave super early in the morning or get home after midnight, but otherwise, the Colorado mountains are your playground for your elopement or small wedding!

Where are you two based out of?

Larissa is based out of Erie, CO. Bailey is based out of Timnath, CO.

We feel soooo awkward in front of a camera - help?!?

We 100% get it! Getting your picture taken can feel super awkward, especially if you’re supposed to just stand there and smile and act lovey, all the while wondering what to do with your hands. Let us assure you - you are NOT awkward, and we will give you direction the whole time! Our photography style is much more casual and candid. Instead of putting you in Pinterest-perfect poses that don’t feel normal, we prioritize helping you two be present in the moment and give you two things to DO together that create genuine laughs, smiles, and intimacy that we then capture on camera. Our goal is for you to feel like you can be yourselves and have fun together! 

What happens if you get sick on my elopement day?

Knock on wood it doesn’t happen, but on the rare occasion that your booked photographer is unable to be there for your elopement, we have a solid backup system in place. As a team, we are always each other’s first call to step in. If for some reason the other person isn’t available, we have a list of go-to trusted photographers who have a similar skill level, style, and approach who will step in. We promise we won’t leave you hanging!

My elopement is six weeks out. Am I too late to book?

Not at all! We have worked with couples who have booked anywhere from a year to less than a week out from their elopement day. As long as you’re willing to stay on top of communicating and we have the date open, we’re always open to helping with last-minute elopements!

Do you offer engagement sessions?

Absolutely! We LOVE when we get to meet our couples in person before the big day! You can learn more about our couples sessions here.

Do you shoot each elopement together or individually?

We very rarely shoot together, so you will most likely be working with either Larissa or Bailey. We respond to inquiries based on availability and who we think might be a better fit for each couple!

How many photos can I expect to receive from our elopement?

We do not limit the number of images we give you - if we take a good photo, you deserve to have it. However, we do go through and remove photos that are duplicates, out of focus or have eyes closed. We commit to delivering a minimum of 30 images per hour.

How long does it take to receive my photos after our elopement?

You will receive a robust sneak peek (because we can’t help ourselves!) within 7 days from your elopement and the full gallery within 8 weeks.

How are our final photos delivered?

We deliver your final photos in an online viewing gallery that you can share with family and friends.

Can we print our photos on our own?

Yes! You have access to download all of the high resolution photos directly from your online gallery. From there you get personal printing rights, to print wherever you want.

Do you offer prints and albums if we don’t want to do it ourselves?

Absolutely! You have access to our luxury prints, canvases and framed photos that can be ordered directly through your online gallery. We also know that creating your own album is daunting so offer full album designs with our luxury handcrafted albums.

Do you offer video? 

We specialize in photography and do not offer video services at this time. However, we do have a list of incredible videographers that we often work with that we would be happy to share!

Yay! You're here!
