Elopements. They’re everything a simple union aught to be. Sincere. Thrilling. Unique. Sprinkle in a dramatic landscape and saying yes to forever, just you and your person, sounds like perfection.
I yearn to connect with adventurous couples who want nothing more than to say their “I Do’s” with a mountain backdrop, a white sandy beach, cliffs in Ireland…you get the idea.
I am an absolute sucker for raw, emotion-filled moments and mix that with an awe-inspiring landscape, well, I couldn’t imagine a more beautiful marriage.
Truth time, I’ve yet to capture my first. So…I created one to capture. I’m all about putting your desires out into the universe and try to manifest up some good vibes for yourself.
What ever is the point of sitting around and waiting for things to happen to you, when you can create your own opportunities to learn and grow from when the time arrives?
It’s also a fabulous way to connect with fellow small businesses that you will likely work with in the future.
I took this shoot a step further and challenged myself to do it in the dead of winter, after a fresh snowfall (not a photographer’s first choice). Also, I’m impatient, so waiting for spring or summer to arrive when I had all of these ideas buzzing around….mmm, wasn’t gonna happen.
Although I live among the Driftless region and it can be really quite spectacular in some areas. The option to shoot in the open plains, or with a Montana Mountain scene wasn’t going to happen. So I chose to highlight one of the areas more dramatic locations, The Mines of Spain.
There’s something so intoxicating about capturing such intimate moments between two souls clearly meant for each other. My couple, Mark + Jess, have a connection that makes you weak in the knees when you see it, I’ve been lucky enough to capture it on multiple occasions.
Even more fulfilling is when you’ve watched all of the details you’ve planned for months come together and this story unfolds in front of you and is even better than you could have imagined.
Ugh, my photographer heart.
So, are you off on an adventure to say, “I do.”?
Take me with you.
