We are HYBRID SHOOTERS / ABSOLUTE PHOTO & VIDEO FREEKS!! We're best friends, married for 13 years and have been shooting weddings & adventure elopements together throughout our marriage.
This will sound cheesy but imagine Chip & Joanna Gaines showing to shoot your Elopement or Wedding story. Fun, kinda funny, creative, stylish, innovative, personable, witty, HARD WORKING, efficient, on budget, best friends, madly in love, all about family...that's pretty much US!
Of course we love to travel but our home is tucked in the epicenter of adventure here in the Four Corners in good ole Farmington, NM.
If budget allows we're ALWAYS down to travel to epic locations to create the Wedding or ADVENTURE Elopement experience of your dreams.

(For real people say Katie reminds them of Joanna Gains ALL THE TIME.)

We wish we had the luxury for anything to be “good enough.” But we don’t. We're driven to continue in growth and development. We truly want to be the most competent love storyteller's we can possibly be.
Whether your considering an Adventure Elopement or you can't imagine your Wedding Day without all your closest loved ones, we want to make this process as turn-key and stress free as possible.
Working with a husband / wife duo with as much experience as we have is priceless. At this point in our career we've shot close to 1000 events. We generally have more experience building & coordinating timelines than most planners. And because Katie & I both shoot photo AND video, we can do things that most duos can't. Having us cover both camps during the getting ready, and seamlessly shoot photo & video the entire day, gives you a final product that would normally take a team of shooters to produce. It is possible to hire just one of us, but 2 will always be better than 1.
It doesn't matter if you're having a traditional Wedding or an Adventure Elopement, figuring out a creative way to have a real adventure on your wedding day is the experience that you will remember most. One of our main goals outside of helping you connect all the vendor dots, is to figure out how we can infuse some epic adventure into your day. Could be a morning hike, a soak in a hot springs, an ATV ride, horse ride, balloon ride, motorcycle ride, canoeing, rafting, WHATEVER IT IS....have some adventure on your Wedding Day! It will make for the best photos and the best memories.
YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED! This day should set the precedent for the rest of your lives! We have seen so many Weddings where the actual Wedding Day was more about the food and the drinks than it was about the couple. And couples leave Big Wedding experiences usually wondering what happened, contacting us right away to see the photos because it's all kind of a blur. Adventure together force you to center experiences on this special day solely around you. Bigger Weddings you'll have to work hard to make that happen. It's ok though. We can help.
This was our first official unforgettable Wedding in 2020 after the world had declared covid 19 an international pandemic. Amy & Jason's love transcended all of the madness and for this brief moment in time, nothing else mattered.
Kamille & Jack set out on a once in a lifetime experience hosted at New Mexico's hottest Glamping Retreat called Kitfox. Tucked off-grid just outside of Santa Fe, this made for the ultimate Glamping Elopement experience!
This Desert Rover Lake Powell Adventure Elopement was absolutely INSANE!! We love taking couples off-grid into the most unreal landscapes on the planet.
"I have an idea. Let's rent a Ski Resort Lodge, adventure elope with only our closest family & dog, hike around for a while after, eat gourmet sliders, and have an exclusive reception party in The Nugget bar to close it out."
Amazing Rocky Mountain Bride collaborative styled shoot set in Toas, NM! There are so many diverse layers to this spread it was insane! Most adorable couple to work with!
The main questions to ask yourself is: "Do I want to share my wedding day with all my closest friends & family, or do I want to this day to be solely about US." It's Gathering vs. Intimacy. Important to remember, this is YOUR DAY. Your Day deserves to be exactly the way you've always dreamed about it.
Where will your story take place? The location or venue you are choosing becomes the canvas for your story. We recommmend thinking more about the landscape vs. the specific location.
