Add-On Services


Day After Sessions


Day after sessions are a fun option to celebrate & hit hard to get to locations or activities you couldn't do on the elopement day. Many couples choose to go with a casual shoot style, or do a more creative "trash the dress" session, which is exactly what it sounds like. This could include going on a muddy hike, jumping into the ocean, or turning it into an art project. I’m up for anything!



Prints & Albums


Photo albums and prints are a great way to display your images. Plus, it's a great way to share the experience with anyone who wasn't able to attend! Through my delivered galleries you will be able to access a world-class print shop for both prints and albums!


CREATIVE WAYS TO DISPLAY AND SHARE YOUR PHOTOS:

  • A wedding album that sits on the coffee table
  • Big canvas prints you can display on the walls
  • Cute "We Eloped" announcements
  • A customized box filled with printed photos (Etsy has great options)
  • An album for friends and family to display in their homes


Are you ready to make some magic happen? Heck yeah, let's do this!


First things first, you'll need to head on over to my contact form and fill that baby out. Once I have those deets, I'll give 'em a good review and get back to you within 24-48 hours.


Then, we'll hop on a zoom call to make sure we vibe and answer any questions you have. Once you're ready to kick things into high gear, I'll send over the contract and invoice. I'll need a 20% nonrefundable deposit to get the party started, and then the remaining 80% is due a month before your big day. If you need a payment plan, no sweat - we can sort that out too!


Now, the real fun begins. Together, we'll create the elopement of your freakin' dreams! Want me to take the reins? I'm all in! Or, if you prefer to be more hands-on, I can be more of a guide to help you navigate the process.


As your big day approaches, let's hang out in person over a beer or coffee to iron out any last-minute details and get comfortable with each other. That way, you can feel totally at ease when the day arrives.


And finally, the moment you've been waiting for - have a blast, make memories, and let's create a day you'll never forget!
