Emily quit her job as an attorney 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!
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 50 couples in 2020!) 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.
Tony will be the officiant as much as possible. In case he has a work conflict, Emily has many other officiants she works with and will find someone for your wedding day.
Emily photographed our elopement to San Francisco City Hall. But to say she was just a “photographer” would be to undervalue what Emily did to help us. Emily helped us with every step of the process, from suggesting hotels to helping find a hair and makeup person, even securing a gorgeous bouquet for our day. Emily’s easy-going manner put us at ease and made our poses not staged, but rather informal and joyful. Our photos turned out fantastic and are beautiful remembrances of our day. Emily is an excellent communicator and genuinely kind and helpful. We are both grateful to her for making our long-awaited day even more special.
Katherine has been helping Emily plan and coordinate her photo sessions since March of 2021 and has been loving every second of it. You’ll often hear from her first when you inquire and will continue talking with her and Emily once you book.
She loves helping clients plan and execute their dream elopement with ease. Your wedding should be filled with love and excitement, not stress. She is here to help make sure that's the case!
Whether you need vendor recommendations, location options, styling advice, or anything else, Katherine is here to help. As a Bay Area native and travel lover, she been to nearly every location Emily has photographed and will be a valuable resource to lean on while planning.
Shana has been filming weddings since 2019 and enjoys every second of it.
The best part of filming a wedding is capturing the organic and natural moments between two best friends that just can't stay away from each other. The goal is to handcraft a timeless film to showcase how you both truly are as a couple. Whether it be from your intimate wedding vows or your endless jokes you make to each other during the ceremony - this is your love story told.
Hi! It's me, Emily! When you book a "remember the day", your flowers are included. You can also add florals to any of my other packages.
When you choose to include flowers to your packages, just send us your inspiration photos, any specific likes/dislikes of choice of flowers, and we will bring a bouquet/boutonniere of similar style/size!

Traditionally, elopement meant you were running away from your parents to get married. Not anymore! We have had plenty of elopements involving parents, siblings, friends, and more. For our purposes, eloping means you are getting married in a smaller scale, no frills, wedding somewhere beautiful with 20-25 or less of your closest family and friends. We aren't too strict on that number, but you get the idea! More guests you have = less free options and chances we will have to pay for venue/permit. I can help you with the options!
Very! We plan the whole entire thing for you - minus your flights to the location. We will give you all the driving directions, suggested hotels/Airbnbs and all the other logistics! It's like you are getting a wedding planner, photographer, officiant in one.
We believe that your elopement day photography in so many ways is more important than big wedding photography. Why? Because at the end of the day, the only proof you might have of your marriage (besides a legally binding marriage license 😉) are your photos! People get entire day wedding photography for big weddings - elopements need longer coverage too! We aren't too strict on this timing - we generally like to cover part of you two getting ready, before, during, and after the ceremony - generally with a change of scenery.
We will not only have a plan A that you LOVE, but we will also come up with a plan B that you equally love! (And C, D, E, if it will make you feel better.)
I also know that this is a completely valid concern, and therefore, I am very flexible. All of my elopements can be rescheduled, or even cancelled, without any penalty. My deposits are FULLY REFUNDABLE! Yes, even if you have to cancel your wedding the day of.
Amazing! We offer packages that do not include Tony's services.
Yes! You can add videography easily to our packages.
If for some reason Shana is not available, she will send another amazing videographer in her place, and edit the video, so what you receive will be consistent to what you see!
