You will only have one elopement day of your life. Let's document it! You will book Emily's time the entire day (sunrise to sunset), and can include photo coverage of your day-of-outing, final touches of getting ready, "first look" of when you first see each other when you are fully ready, going to/arriving to your ceremony location, ceremony, and photoshoot after the ceremony. 

Please take $300 off any package price if you do not need an officiant.

Emily quit her job as an attorney last year to pursue her passion - photography.

One of her previous brides put it perfectly - "Emily, you are doing what you are meant to do." It's true! Emily believes 100% that planning, marrying, and capturing couples elopement days are truly her calling. 

She loves to let the couples show their fun, happy, and warm side in the photos because she believes your wedding day is not a production day - it's a day filled with happiness and just having fun!

About the Photographer

When COVID hit and Emily had so many couples who couldn't get married at city hall anymore, we came up with the plan so Emily's clients can still get married - which was for Tony to become ordained. Rest is history (yes, it's a short one - but mighty - he's married over 35 couples in the past 4 months!) and Tony has been marrying not only Emily's city hall wedding couples, but so many other couples' and in his words "it's been awesome!"

Tony is available for a non-denominational, spiritual, or religious ceremonies. In other words, he is totally flexible! We are happy to send over his regular vows/ceremony, and you can change it up to however you will like, as long as you say the legally required words like "I do". :) We also ask you how dressed up you want him to be, so we can go with the vibe you want in case he ends up in your photos. 

About the Officiant

Can other people come?

Yes! When you start to have more than 6 or so people, we might have to look further into permits and such, but our packages include up to 10 of your guests.  

What should I wear?

Traditional wedding attire looks amazing even in the most rugged landscape, so don't think elopement = casual. Also, often times, the places we will go will have beautiful wind. Think something that will flow with the wind when it comes to dresses. It adds beautiful movement to your photos. 

Will you book my flights, hotels, and car rentals?

We are able to give you plenty of suggestions if you need them, but ultimately, those are personal decisions with many factors to consider (are you a redeye person? do you have work on Thursdays?!, etc.) so we will leave the actual booking of flights, cars, and hotels up to you!

What if it rains?

We are fully prepared to keep going rain or shine (we have a super duper cute clear umbrella that photographs well), but we also totally understand that's not the vision you had. We will have Plan B in case of rain - somewhere sheltered. If you are in the area for a few days, and we are not otherwise booked, we are also able to move the dates around as well. If you absolutely do not want rain, months of June-Sept are generally months without rain in Northern California.

Can you recommend florists and makeup/hair artists? 

Yes!! We've done over 100+ elopements and we have vendors we love and trust. 

What if I have no idea where we want to elope?

No worries! We handle that for you. We will get to know your general visions of what you are imagining, and give you suggestions based on that. Our extensive travel planning background + being Northern California natives, we got you!!
