As we have seasoned and grown in our craft, we have seen a wide spectrum of the wedding industry.  While we still count it a blessing and privilege every time a couple chooses us to shoot their wedding,  we feel a particular resonance with something new on our radar – something we have tasted in small part and feel compelled to develop and offer to more couples. Overnight Glamping - Adventure Elopements.

Adventure
Elopements

Honestly, for most couples we work with, the wedding day itself can be one of the most stressful days of their lives.  Even with the swankiest venue money can buy, and the most accomplished wedding coordinator / designer, most couples are left feeling that the wedding monster eats the beauty of the occasion itself, and “off camera” wish they had allocated priorities and money in perhaps different ways.

Instead of just basking in the glory of their special day, they're consumed but the compulsion to entertain all the guests who have traveled and sacrificed time to be there for them. While we cannot overstate how important these close family and friend relationships are in the grand scheme of things, this day is really about one thing...a joint decision to embark on a commitment that will last a lifetime. We want couple to experience the fullness of just that. Just them. In an unforgettable adventure in to the unknown.   

Why choose an elopement OVER A WEDDING?

So, after a long-winded background explanation, we are so excited about developing this new fusion concept - a filmmaking approach to once in a lifetime Adventure Elopements that are a perfectly curated balance between the intimacy of an elopement, and the design, elegance, boho chic-ness, planning and outfitting of a super styled wedding. It's this idea that "the adventure" can also be adorned in custom tailored accents that create a signature experience like no other. We are so grateful to be partnered with Desert Harbor Retreat for this new chapter and can't wait to see how it begins to unfold.

I’m still pretty suspicious that you all aren’t real and I just had an Alice in wonderland experience. I’m missing you guys- hoping you’ll be hiding behind a cactus when I’m on a walk! Alex and I are sooooo happy with these pictures. They’re so special for us especially when Alex was asked to take off his shirt. Pretty sure that was the happiest moment in his life. From the few grainy Instagram story footages that I’ve seen, the pics from the big day are unreal too! You guys are magicians from what I can tell. 

P and K,I'm still in shock

We will be in touch with you shortly!

thank you!
