Hey there, we're Sydney and Ryan Kroll.  Our passion for photographing and planning couples' elopements stems from our very own 'just us' wedding.  It was a beautiful and surreal day that continues to become more special to us as we look back on our elopement. 

Elopements are amazing because they open up so many possibilities.  Even though it's a smaller day compared to a traditional wedding, you have a lot to consider when it comes to planning your day.  That's where we're here to help!

What you should know: we're more than your photographers.  We are here to guide you through the process and be a supportive friend, location scouter, timeline creator, logistics helper, pack mule, bouquet holder, and beyond.

more about us

We grew up in the same hometown in Connecticut and have ventured far since then.  We were in the same circle of friends in high school and started dating at 16 & 18 years old. In 2017, we eloped in Hawaii and called paradise our first home together where we adopted our pup, Louie. 

We've collectively traveled to 12 countries and have called Connecticut, Texas, Florida, Hawaii, and California home. One of our life goals is to visit all of the national parks and own an Airstream or campervan so we can always hop on the road for an adventure. Some fun facts about us: we both volunteer at Joshua Tree National Park, we're scuba certified, we enjoy playing Clue and Catan, listening to true crime podcasts, hiking, and going to outdoor markets.

Life is an adventure and we're doing what we can to embrace every moment.
