How your marriage begins matters.
Does wedding planning have you feeling stressed out? Does the idea of a big traditional wedding seem like something so “not you” that you find yourself dreading a day that is supposed to bring you overwhelming joy?
You are not alone. Many couples are finding freedom in choosing a more non-traditional wedding experience. Keeping the traditions that speak to them, while filling the rest of the day with activities that speak to who they are as a couple.
Forget what you think a wedding Should look like… Instead, imagine what your wedding Could look like!
Close your eyes and visualize what you would do on your very favorite day with your very favorite human… Now envision building your wedding experience around THAT perfect day- what does it look like? As an Arizona elopement and intimate wedding photographer, I help couples who choose a non-traditional wedding experience that is true to them!
What’s in a name… why Stratus Adventure Photography?
Have you ever laid facing the sky, imagining a whole other world in the clouds above? From dragons in far off castles, to bunnies hopping through fields of flowers, the possibilities of what you dream up are limited only by your imagination! Creating mythical worlds and adventures in the sky has been a favorite pastime of mine for as long as I can remember. When it came time to name my elopement photography business, incorporating this limitless, free spirited way of looking at the world helps serve as a daily reminder that anything is possible, and it is a principle I use to help guide my couples with!
This sounds exactly like what I’m looking for for my wedding!

Elope /əˈlōp/ verb
- to choose a wedding experience laser focused on you as a couple, your relationship, and your commitment to each other. Can be with or without close friends and family who are integral parties to the success of your marriage. “They chose to elope and begin their marriage intentionally strengthening their bond by doing something special together.”

Embrace the freedom to have the wedding that fits you!
Traditional weddings aren’t for everyone- and that is ok. I was once a bride to be, trying to plan a wedding that fit the expectations and needs of a ton of people I barely saw or spoke to, feeling overwhelmed and unenthusiastic about the whole process. My own 7+ year struggle planning a wedding was actually where my journey as an Arizona elopement photographer began. Once I embraced a non-traditional wedding myself, I wanted to help other couples embrace the freedom to do the same!
Your wedding is the start of a new chapter in your lives together. It is a brave choice to start this portion of your journey with a day focused on building a strong foundation, a day designed around choosing each other over everyone else.
