Handcrafted Wedding Experiences For Adventurous Souls

Because let’s be honest—the love you have for each other has nothing to do with novel-length guest lists, traditions that feel too #traditional, and turning your vows into a performance for hundreds.

If that’s what you were looking for, you certainly wouldn’t be here. 

You’re more of the dirt on your boots, sweat on your forehead, dogs-in-tow, “who packed the snacks?” type people, am I right? The ones who can’t imagine focusing on anything other than each other on the day that’s about… *gasp* each other.

Let me assure you, in case no one else has, you’re not the crazy ones. And I can’t wait to embark on this wild wedding with you.

And you could relive it until the end of time...

That’s the power of photography. Turning moments into more than just memories that eventually fade, tucked away into the dusty corners of our busy minds. Photos tell a story—your story—and breathe new life into your love each time you see them, hold them, and pass them on as a legacy of devotion. 

What If Your Best Adventure Never Had To End?:

Who desire more than what’s expected

Let’s make your love last lifetimes, shall we?

-Being completely immersed in the present moment with no stress, overwhelm, or expectations

-Experiencing something new and exciting together while having an absolute blast

-Ditching the status quo and opting for adventure—wherever it takes you

-Staying totally true to you and nixing anything else 

When you think about your wedding, what matters most?

If it’s…

Then grab your gear and set the GPS (I’ll handle the rest)—because you’re in for the adventure of a lifetime. 

Stress Isn’t On The Itinerary 

I get it—planning a wedding can feel overwhelming. Who do you call first? Where do you find the right vendors? How do you craft a timeline? 

The to-do list feels neverending, when all you really want to do is be together and start your next chapter.

Fortunately for you, I’m slightly obsessed with planning and may or may not be the most prepared person you’ve *yet* to meet. Aside from taking your soon-to-be-favorite photos, I also...

-Location scout for you—finding the one place on Earth that most perfectly represents your story and will serve as the ideal backdrop for your big day

-Craft a customized timeline—fitting in all your “must-haves” and connecting the dots so no sunrise or sunset is missed

-Find and suggest vendors—whether you need a dress, a place to stay, or a fresh bouquet, I’m connected to some of the industry’s best and will get your list taken care of

-Pack all the things you might forget—like bobby pins for wind-swept hair, bandaids for blistered heels, Kleenex for vow-induced tears, and umbrellas for unexpected rain

You’ve got one job and one job only:
Enjoy the day. The rest is on me. 

Because I’ve got it all handled

Here’s What’s Going Down

Official First Hang Out: 

After reading through all the details of your submission (and prematurely planning for your wedding), I’ll reach out and set up a call with you both. No need to get butterflies, we’re simply getting to know each other and see if we’re the perfect fit. We’ll chat about packaging options, dates, expectations, and any initial questions you might have.


Don’t Be Shy, Come Say Hi:

Liking what you see? Think we might make the perfect pair for your adventure elopement? Step number one is reaching out via my contact form and telling me a few details about your story and your goals for your day. 


Booked & Ready To Rumble:

 After choosing your package, I’ll send all the paperwork to make this officially official and get your date solidified in the books. 


Time To Plan:

Now for my personal favorite part—planning all the goodness that will go into your day. I’ll be right by your side the entire time with super-helpful resources like a customized location guide, timeline examples, and as many phone calls as you need.


Say I Do:

TIME TO CELEBRATE! Today’s the day we’ve been planning for—the day you finally say “forever.” All you need to do is have the time of your life and I’ll cover the rest. From keeping us on schedule to capturing every moment big or small, today I’m all yours.


Reminisce In Bliss:

48 hours after “I do” you’ll receive a little sneak peek of your day (because I can’t stand making you wait). Then 8 weeks later every single photo will be yours. Print ‘em. Share ‘em. Frame ‘em. Obsess over them for generations to come. Congrats friends, your adventure is just beginning and I’m so dang glad you invited me along.


Let me say that again.

"Jessie is a phenomenal photographer! She was so attentive to what I was looking for in our engagement and wedding day pictures and she brought her own style as well to create stunning photos that I otherwise would not have thought of! Usually my husband and I always feel so awkward in front of the camera but Jessie helped us become more comfortable and guided us throughout the entire process. She not only photographed us as a couple, but she captured moments throughout the day and night that I am beyond grateful to have and we will cherish them for a lifetime! She was also very quick to get our pictures edited and sent to us so we could enjoy them right away! I would recommend Jessie a million times over!"

"Jessie was amazing from beginning to end. We decided to plan a DIY wedding... I was a nervous wreck, she was so helpful in surveying the area and giving recommendations on where and what photos to do. After seeing our first look photos we were blown away. She got so many fun shots and was able to capture so many special moments that I would have never even noticed because we were so busy. I can’t recommend her enough, she has a keen eye for detail and she captured all of the amazing moments that we wouldn’t have been able to enjoy in the moment on our day."

"Jessie is so talented!! Not only did the photos from my couple session turn out STUNNING, but Jessie made the entire process fun and easy! She had us laughing, feeling comfortable, and enjoying every moment we shared during the shoot. It was an awesome experience. Next time I need photos taken, I know who to call. We will cherish our photos forever."
