Hey Friend—You’re probably here because you’re just not feeling this “big wedding thing.” And we get it—big weddings aren’t for us either.

We’re s0 relieved that there’s another way to get married.

Eloping means boiling down a wedding to what really matters: the two of of you committing your lives to each other. Eloping is just as celebratory as having a big wedding… but without all the stress, drama, pressure, and obligation. Instead, you can have a day that’s truly focused on the two of you—that’s authentic, meaningful, and intimate. Whether you choose to invite a few friends & family, or have a day just you two—we’re here for it.

As elopement photographers & guides, we don’t just show up & shoot—we help you craft and plan your day from scratch—to make it more unforgettable than you’re even dreaming of right now.

So here’s how we do that:

Hi! I’m Maddie Mae! I’m addicted to travel and adventure in new places—finding secret hikes and driving down unmarked dirt roads. My partner is from Scotland and we have traveled to a combined total of over 75 countries— I prefer tent-camping to hotels, public busses and walking to taxis, and sketchy street food to 5-star restaurants.

There’s no adventure too extreme or place too far to go for an adventure elopement—I have climbed 14,000 ft mountains, snowshoed up glaciers, and waded neck-deep in freezing rivers to document couples’ love stories.

I believe that elopements are the best way to have an unforgettable wedding experience and I love empowering couples to make that brave choice to elope. I'm so excited to get to know you and plan an awesome adventure together.

Hey, I'm Amber! The Rocky Mountains have my heart and are THE reason I moved to Colorado. I live just minutes outside of Rocky Mountain National Park with my husband, Shayne, and our two rescue dogs, Olive & Cooper. We love spending our free time paddle boarding, drinking 'mountain summit' beers, or snuggled up at home, watching a favorite TV show.

Shayne and I met at an airport and then free-soled the Second Flatiron in Boulder, Colorado at night for our “first date”. Adventure has always set my soul on fire, so it’s no surprise that our relationship was founded on it.

I love elopements and intimate weddings because they give you permission to create a day that truly reflects your relationship. I can’t think of a better day to take a helicopter ride to the top of a glacier- what is adventure dream? I’m so excited help make your elopement day your new favorite story to tell!

Hi there! I’m Tori! The mountains have my whole heart and the outside my soul. I’ve hiked 300+ miles of the Appalachian trail, lived in a romantic medieval village in Provence, France while studying abroad, and spent 9 weeks in Thailand eating fresh mangos and motorbiking to a new snorkeling spot everyday.

I feel most alive when I am waking up in a dewy tent on a mountainside, skinny dipping in salt water, and experiencing new cultures and foods.

My husband and I eloped in Colorado on a snow covered mountain overlook surrounded by our closest friends and family and then spent the week skiing. Our day was uniquely us—relaxed, fun, and intimate. It was our dream day, and I cannot wait to help you create yours. Let’s make it happen.
