Feeling “stuck” in your wedding planning? It’s ok... it can be hard! You want each bit of the wedding you build to be intentional and meaningful to you and your partner. But, sometimes the checklists and “wedding trend” articles can put you in autopilot on what you want and what‘s right for you!
//
Maybe you’ve been thinking that its gotten too big, too much and you want to toss the planning spreadsheet in the trash and elope or do something totally different… But, you’re finding you can’t quite make the leap…
//
Maybe you’re torn because there are lots things you love about a traditional wedding.... But, wish there was a way to make it more personal and intimate for you and your partner...
//
Maybe you’ve looked into an adventure wedding or adventure elopement... But, aren’t sure that’s right for your ceremony.
//
For these reasons (and more!) you might find an Adventure Session is perfect for what you need! Personal & Intimate. Unique & beautiful. A perfect blend of traditional and you! What exactly is an Adventure Session and when can you use it??? Inspiration just posted--watch the snapshot video from my website—click the link below!

Every journey in couple-dom is different, and weekends are a perfect snapshot of that! Some like to Netflix and chill... Some like to go explore the foodie scene... Or some might like to dabble in all these other things too, but are super-extra-stoked to be headed to go climb! Outside, in January 😬
//
Kind of makes me wonder why, then, we all kind of get funneled into the same place for engagement photos and wedding planning.😕 We didn’t all start in the same place... we didn’t all journey in the same direction or follow the same path… So why would this next stop on a couples journey always need to look “traditional”and largely the same???
//
And to that I say, you do you, boo! 🙌🏼 Let’s plan an engagement photo session where and you and your honey actually will be recognizable to your friends and family!😉 And then, let’s build the wedding or elopement that’s honest to this journey you’ve been on, and that reflects what makes you guys tick. Because at the end of the day, those are the things that will continue to matter.🤗

Despite what your friends, family or even Instagram might tell you, you DON’T have to be hardcore outdoorsy to build an amazing Adventure Wedding! 😜 "Wait. What?!" you say! How can you pull that off?!?!

Check out the link below where I walk you through how we can take your favorite type of location (like a beach or a mountain), and find ways to scale down OR scale up the amount of adventure involved to what’s best for your wedding! 🙌🏼

NEW VIDEO live on my YouTube! (link below!) When the rubber hits the road and you and your partner are designing your wedding day, the guest list inching higher with each name you only “kinda-sorta know" can start to up the stress. What happened to the “small wedding” you’d said you both wanted?
//
How can you get back to the intimate wedding you know will make you happy? You and your partner can use the trick in this video to narrow down your wedding guest list (and regain your sanity and budget!) in under 10 MINUTES, saving you months and months of stress!
//
Whether you are stoked on an intimate adventure wedding, want confirmation an elopement is right for you, or, even if you’re building a more traditional wedding, this trick will work for you! Watch the video below!

Southeast Climbing Community! I know our community is pretty intimate, so hoping that “6 degrees of separation” (or less!) works in our favor!  🍀🤞🍀 Clearing out files in my photo workflow to make room for my upcoming shoots, I stumbled back onto to these…

I will admit… I don’t typically photograph many straight-up landscapes, and have a bit of a self-imposed rule that I don’t post that many either.  Don’t get me wrong!  As an avid outdoor adventurer, I love landscapes, but have found over time that I…
