Here’s the thing. Yes, I am there to document your bold and amazing day. And I’m a whole bunch more than that.

Here’s a little bit of what else you get when with you book me, your adventure wedding photographer/best friend:

Meet Aimée.

Connection. Authenticity. Adventure. Love. These are the things that make my heart flutter... 

It is the most amazing thing ever that you’re following your heart and doing the damn thing of eloping. You’re amazing! You’re doing the raddest thing ever! You’re a freaking rock star! I’m gonna cheer the hell out of that.

Your elopement Patronus: 

YOUR NUMBER ONE CHAMPION:

YOUR adventure guide:

A lot (like…*a lot*) of enthusiasm. I love my job in absurd excess and even more than that I love to help bring your greatest day ever to life. Life’s moments of connection and love and wild places are so so so important and worthwhile. Not to be too cheesy but it’s the greatest honor ever to be a part of that.

Overwhelmed by planning; I’ve got you covered. Not sure where to elope; I have a process to help narrow it down. Don’t know the permit process; I do. Not sure how to pack; I can tell you how. Need a suggestion for an eco friendly florist who travels; I’ve got peeps to recommend. I’m here to banish any worry and to make sure your day is no stress, only stoke.

I’m based out of Phoenix Arizona but call any part of the desert my home-I’m a desert rat through and through. I was born and raised in Chicago and didn’t see my first mountain until my first visit to AZ when I was 22 (::gasp::). But the alien, complicated beauty of the desert took me totally by surprise and I fell completely head over heels in love with it. So much so that I packed up my stuff, said goodbye to the Midwest, and headed west because it’s so important to me to chase the thing you love. And I love the mountains and sky and the smell of campfire at the end of a long day. I love this crazy planet we’re lucky enough to call home.

I’m always chasing my next Peak Existence…

Hey! I’m Aimée*!

I went to New Zealand with my husband and two of my very best friends and it changed everything for me. Every day was stuffed with new, amazing things: glow worm caves, glacial rapids, turquoise oceans, actual glaciers, and mountains that would blow your freaking mind. 

Every day we’d look at each other astonished, having just lived the best day of our lives. We started to say “peak existence.” The pinnacle of life, the best day ever, a day we felt more alive and happy than ever before. Peak existence. I remember saying to my husband after full-on ugly crying at how beautiful Milford Sound was. “Sorry,” I said. “But our wedding wasn’t the best day of my life.”

My husband nodded. “Nope,” he said. “Today is.”

*AIMÉE

Pronounced:

An Origin Story

/Em-Aay/

The human behind the camera:

It’s so, so worth it.

get in touch!

That’s what I’m chasing. And more importantly, that’s what I want for you. For your wedding day to be your actual best day ever.

Peak Existence. 

Life is short and it is uncertain. If something deep inside you wants a big blowout wedding with 200 guests… then you should do that. But if something calls you to hike El Cap at dawn or say I do beside a raging waterfall then you should do that! Do the thing you long to do. Honor that quiet voice inside that tells you what’s right for you. It’s the most worthwhile thing you can do… well, ever.

So that’s my story. I’d really love to hear yours.
