Journal of Peak Existence


Elopement Style Vow Renewal 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 […]

The Arizona desert sky really showed off for this one! Check out Emmy + Keal's beautiful red rock Sedona Elopement-Style vow renewal.

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. […]

This sunset Arizona Elopement at the Mogollon Rim is rad inspiration for adventerous couples who want a little desert, a little forest, and a *big* cliff.

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 […]

This fun and romantic Iceland Adventure Elopement shoot in Borgarnes was the perfect introduction to Iceland for this adventerous couple

And now we head north for Part II of Michael and Todd’s epic Arizona Adventure Session! (If you haven’t seen Part I, check it out here!) Michael and Todd really wanted to see Antelope Canyon during their trip, so I tagged along for a group tour (note: the group tours in Antelope are crazy crowded […]

Here's part II of Michael and Todd's Arizona Adventure Session! We adventured to Northern Arizona for stunning slot canyons and iconic Horseshoe Bend!

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 […]

Part II of my epic icelandic road trip features the famed southern reagion of Iceland; black sand beaches, staggering waterfalls, and geothermal wonders.

Michael and Todd visited from Chicago in April, which in the midwest is a month that feels like it should be gearing up towards summer but always somehow winds up more like winter. They requested epic views and fun hikes so, jamming as much into the experience we drove north to Sedona and then later […]

Michael and Todd traded cold midwest weather for sunny, epic views during their Hiking Adventure session in Sedona Arizona.

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 […]

Wanting to have an AZ elopement but worrying you may melt in the desert heat? Consider these five factors and you can have a blast and still stay cool.

I remember sitting across the table from Drew and Angelica as they told me to brace myself for their vision for their adventure maternity session. I remember being a little nervous. Brace myself? Oh, lord. But then they said the most magical words. “Editorial Vogue Wakanda” And I about fell out of my chair. Vogue […]

Drew and Angelica's vision for their Adventure Maternity Session was Editorial Vogue Wakanda and they were every bit as fierce as their vision suggested!

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. It’s INCREDIBLE there. Like, it is truly an astounding place, an actual planet of Ice and Fire (and incidentally where I saw the […]

Yay, my first of personal adventure post. Earlier this year I had the *incredible* opportunity to take an EPIC Iceland road trip. Part I documented here. :)

Arizona comes in all shapes and sizes. She has forests, deserts, lakes, snow, fields of flowers, rivers, and canyons. Oh, Arizona’s Canyons. And I’m not even talking about her most famous canyon. There are a tone of rad places in Arizona, but Page Arizona is *the place* for a slot canyon adventure session. (And if […]

This winter slot canyon adventure session is jam-packed with emotions. Slot Canyons provide the perfect adventurous backdrop for engagements and elopements.
