Eloping was a pivotal decision for us that impacted our lives beyond our wedding day. By choosing to celebrate the beginning of our life together in a way that was more true and authentic to us, we realized how important it was to continue that sentiment in our everyday lives . And we want that for you.
You will receive a full online gallery of your images and film and have access to our print shop where you can order prints and heirloom quality albums. A sneak peek of 5 images is delivered within 3 days of your elopement and the full gallery in 8 weeks. Elopement films are delivered in 10 weeks.
Through questionnaires and getting to know you, we establish a custom location idea list for your elopement. We also provide local travel & hiking recommendations and options, timeline help, info on permits & marriage license, and more.
We're here to document your day to the fullest. Most couples average 6 to 8 hours with us. We also offer half-day (4 hours) or two-day coverage and can create something more custom for you if desired!
That's right, no need to convince an officiant to hike up a mountain with us. If it's just the two of you and you want a simple ceremony, Sydney is ordained and would be happy to make things official for you. Having guests attend or prefer a more detailed ceremony? We'd be happy to recommend officiants local to your elopement location.
This is when we first say hey and get to know you guys and learn about what you're imagining for your day.
Once we connect and chat about your day, reserve your date with us by confirming the date & package you want, signing the agreement, and paying the reservation retainer.
As your day approaches, we are here to support you with any guidance you may need as you plan your trip. We'll send you a questionnaire to get to know you and make suggestions & give you a list of local wedding vendors.
After the celebration, you'll receive a sneak peek within 3 days to enjoy while we work on your images. Your full gallery is delivered in 8 weeks and your film is delivered in 10 weeks.
"...We felt transported right back to the moment of standing in front of that perfect Joshua Tree. You made the film feel like we were getting a glimpse into a fiercely private couple’s love. Turns out we are the lucky couple."

"I fell in love with Sydney and Ryan’s work with the first picture I saw on Instagram. Then reading their bio, I knew I HAD to have them as my photographer. We had planned on eloping in Hawaii, and had to change plans 24 hours before we were supposed to fly out. Sydney was beyond understanding and so helpful. We rescheduled for Arches and Canyonlands a few months later. The amount of time and effort she put into researching locations, restaurants, Airbnb’s, etc. was incredible. She helped make our day stress free. Meeting her was even better than expected. She’s so down to earth and talented. It was like spending the entire day with a friend, who also loves dogs and adventures. I couldn’t say enough nice things about her as a person or photographer. Our photos are better than I ever could have imagined."

"...we met up with Sydney the day before our elopement to scope our location and also grabbed dinner. Meeting up with Sydney felt like hanging out with an old friend! On elopement day, my husband and I were running behind (as per usual LOL) but Sydney was so patient with us! She made our day so special and made us feel so comfortable while taking the photos! Everything was incredible and she helped make our day so beautiful. A couple of days later we received our sneak peak gallery and I cried the entire time going through them, they were so much more beautiful than I could have ever imagined!"

We remember how exciting it felt when we officially decided to elope, but even more so experiencing that overwhelming feeling of, "now what?"
Even though elopements are smaller than traditional, big weddings, there is a LOT to consider to make your day as special and sentimental as you deserve. From our personal experience eloping and helping couples craft their elopement days, we have loads of suggestions, advice, and guidance to offer you.
