ELOPEMENTS, PLANNING RESOURCES

In recent years elopements, adventure weddings, and adventure sessions have really taken off. I know that when I got married I had no idea adventure weddings were even a thing, and if I *had* it’s very, very likely my wedding day would have looked very different. This is sentiment I’ve heard a lot. “If I […]

ADVENTURE SESSIONS, Arizona, ELOPEMENTS

I’ve mentioned before that Arizona has a way more diverse landscape that most people give it credit for. The huge sprawling Ponderosa Pine forest north of Phoenix is one of my favorite hidden gems. Especially because its home to the Mogollon Rim. Truth time: Though I love Arizona and her funky cacti and stark landscapes. […]

I had the privilege of meeting up with Weronika and Sylvester for an Iceland Adventure Elopement shoot during a spring visit to Iceland. I had just completed a road trip around the ring road and they had just arrived. I’m not revealing anything groundbreaking here but Iceland is truly an incredible place (I talk about […]

South Iceland I already talked about the first half of my trip around Icelands Ring Road here. The second half of my epic Icelandic road trip features the Southern part of the island… which was honestly my favorite part. Don’t get me wrong, Iceland is an embarrassment of riches in terms of beauty… but I […]

When you think of Arizona, what do you think of? Blasted earth? Tumbleweeds? Oppressive, stifling heat? Maybe something that looks like this: That’s what I imagined when I first visited Arizona many years ago. I visited in February and happily wore shorts and tank tops in Phoenix. Then I went to Sedona. It was 40 […]

Planet Iceland. I used to think this was hyperbole, just a dramatic way to describe an island country that had some snow and also some cool moss. People. Iceland IS another planet.
