Adventure Elopement PhotographyDocumenting exhilarating, intentional, one-of-a-kind celebrations of true love throughout the west
Blissfully serving Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, and beyond!
Whether your epic adventure elopement is already half-planned, or you’re still just toying with the idea of doing something outside the box, I’m here to tell you that you really can have the elopement of your dreams. It can be as bold, quirky, and downright mind-blowing as you’ve always imagined…or never dared to! I believe your elopement photography should feel like dancing with your best friends in the front row at a concert. Like driving with the windows down in the summertime. Like, everything you’ve always wanted and everything you two have ever hoped for!
In short, I believe you deserve a one-of-a-kind experience that fits your relationship like a glove.
Are you ready to leave behind all things Pinterest-perfect and race towards something deeper? Something new? Something infinitely more genuine, joyful, and true-to-you? Me too! Why don’t we go together?
I’m here for you, whether you’ve already begun dreaming up your perfect elopement at an alpine lake in the mountains or are desperate for someone to guide you through every step of this whole getting-hitched-in-the-mountains thing.
Hey, what’s up, hello! I’m Jess!
Your adventure buddy and new fav photographer
When I was little, I always followed the rules. As an adult, I help couples like you break them on the reg! What changed? It’s a LONG story, and an impulsive decision to go skydiving definitely had something to do with it. But most of all, my passion for unfettered, unrestrained love stories like yours tugged me toward a life spent documenting “I do”s in the most breathtaking landscapes across America.
Known for wearing cozy beanies in every shade, scoping out hidden gem locations, and creating backup plans for my backup plans, I expertly blend planning with spontaneity to create the perfect elopement adventure. I am proud to deliver a photography experience that’s about so much more than the photos we take.
I can’t wait to explore the possibilities with you and bring them to life in a way you’ve never even imagined. Let’s dive in!
This Adventure Elopement Photographer’s top 6 Favorite Destinations
Glacier National Park & Montana
Whether you’re an avid hiker or more of a casual adventurer, Montana truly has magic to offer everyone. Glacier National Park, also known as the “Crown of the Continent” will leave your jaw on the floor no matter where you are or in what direction you look!
Rocky Mountain National Park & Colorado
If you’re looking for a dog-friendly paradise where you can say “I do” without an officiant and even have your pup’s paw print on the marriage license, look no further! Colorado’s got it all including off-roading adventures to alpine lakes to breathtaking red rocks and 14ers!
Grand Teton National Park & Wyoming
There’s nothing quite like Jackson, Wyoming to help you feel immersed in western culture and accessible mountain views. Best known for moose and bear sightings and out-of-this-world sunrises and sunsets, you can’t go wrong with this epic area!
The idea of a destination elopement may unattainable, but I’m here to tell you that it’s possible and beyond worthwhile! The land of fire and ice will leave your heart racing with everything from lush waterfalls to black sandy beaches, volcanoes, and glacial lagoons!
Yosemite National Park
This is a destination featuring heart-stopping drops and granite walls with waterfalls steeper than you ever knew possible. It’s just as exhilarating and awe-inspiring as you can imagine from photos on the internet and even features some amazing spots to stargaze, too!
If you’re dreaming of cozy, moody vibes and cozy small coastal towns, look no further than the Oregon Coast. The misty and foggy weather will bring the most romantic vibe to your intimate elopement if you choose to embrace all that mother nature has in store!
“Jessica immediately felt like an old friend… It was as if she became a sort of unique ‘professional’ maid of honor, which is kind of when you want when there is only one person with you and your spouse to be on your wedding day!”
Tyler and Rahul
“Having someone that is passionate in her goals of ‘crafting purposeful elopement experiences in adventure-filled places’ is exactly what you’ll get when you choose Jessica. From day one, she helped ignite ideas on where and what we wanted in our day… She’s incredible and honestly willing to do whatever it takes to make things absolutely magical no matter the circumstances. “
Deanna and Rob
“The way she documented our day, with gentle guidance, allowed us to be playful, explore the scenery, and just simply feel the love!! Jessica had a professional and strong creative presence and was also laid back, which made us feel at ease.”
Niky and Vlad
