Stratus Adventure Elopement Packages & Pricing

Your fully customized wedding experience awaits!

Deciding to throw out all the rules is exciting! And then comes the overwhelming onslaught of TOO many choices. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!   From finding the * perfect * location (and a couple backups just in case), help finding vendors, wardrobe considerations, to helping remember what to pack on the day of- consider me your photographer, personal elopement problem solver, and adventure sidekick in one.

Let’s work together to take the stress out of wedding planning!

Eloping is about Freedom

  • The freedom to choose your partner over everyone else
  • The freedom to do what YOU want, rather than planning a day based on other’s expectations and traditional norms
  • The freedom to begin your marriage connecting with your best friend, your life partner, the person you are choosing to spend your life with.

and above all… the Freedom to be unapologetically You!

A full-day elopement? What would we even do?!

Anything you can dream of! Just because you are choosing to keep your vows more intimate does not mean that your experience has to be any less. Think of your favorite vacations or day trips together. Were they 2-3 hours of fun, or was the whole day filled with adventure and experiences big and small that give you the warm fuzzies looking back?

Top 4 reason you should opt for full day coverage…

  • Capture your whole wedding day story, from start to finish
  • Be able to relax and breath, taking your day in stride without overly rushed timelines
  • You will be able to share your day with those who aren’t there
  • Document everything so you can preserve all the details, moments, and little pieces of your day that fade from memory over time

Custom built Stratus Adventure Elopement Packages

With freedom comes choice. You are here because your perfect wedding experience does not fit in the “normal” category, so your package won’t look quite like someone else’s either. But don’t worry- there are no high pressure sales pitches or overwhelming extra fluff to weed through. It is my job to help put together a package that fits what YOU value, and help create the experience custom tailored to your vision for your day.

Answers to common questions

I will help you work this out as we go through your ideal day. This is why a consultation is so important, to go through options. And great news! You can always add on more coverage as we get closer to finalizing your timeline if you feel yourself getting stressed about missing something.

No problem! This is actually normal for elopements and intimate weddings. All I need is a date and the state or region to move forward. Location scouting is a huge part of what I help you do once we are booked!

Believe me when I say this is the rule, not the exception.  Most people feel this way, and many times one person in the couple goes so far as to say they “hate” having their picture taken.  This includes pretty much every couple you see on my site!  

Don’t worry- I’ve got you.

First, before I pull up a camera, we will take our time to relax and take in and enjoy the scenery while we talk and I get to know how you interact.   Then, we will start slow and relaxed.  My photography method is to capture very candid documentary style moments.  If you notice- very few of the images on my site and social media have couples looking into the camera.  This is because your day is not about me or the pictures.  Your day is about having a good time with each other- and I am there to help guide and capture the magic.

I will watch the way you interact, and guide you with prompts that bring out real emotions and connect you to each other.  Some moments you may even forget I’m there!  The joy and connection you feel for each other are what make great, flattering photos.  We will make sure to grab a few of the standard portrait style shots for mom and grandma here and there, but the vast majority of our time will be spent capturing you being you.

My goal is for your entire experience to fill you with  feelings of joy, laughter, and deeper connection when you look back at your pictures.

I LOVE kids, and couldn’t imagine a celebration that didn’t involve my son (who isn’t so little anymore).  

As a mom I completely understand how adding kiddos of any age can make things seem so much more complicated.  The mom guilt is real- from timelines to outfit mishaps, to hangry crying, to just needing a nap break, all the little things that come with having our little humans along can make us question whether it’s worth it at all.  Should we even try to do this while they are little?

The answer is YES!  Seriously.  I am not just a mom- I am known as the fun aunt.  The one who gets on the ground and finds the cool bugs with my nieces and nephews.  I have a list of tried and true games and little jobs for young ones to do while we are walking, and have never failed to get a genuine smile out of even the most angst filled teenagers.  Babies?  I don’t try to pretend that babies follow our schedule, and understand flexibility is the key to a happy baby experience.

Absolutely!  I 100% want to meet (and photograph) them.  So much so that for any session that you include your fur/ feathered/ scaled family members I will make a donation to a local non-kill animal shelter.

Not sure what would best fit your needs? No problem! Let’s chat and I am happy to talk you through what you are sure of, and help fill in the gaps where you are not.
