Why We Shoot Elopements & intimate weddings
We’ve photographed many traditional weddings in the Midwest before moving to the mountains. Over the years, we realized that something was just...missing. We want couples to have a real experience--to have a story worth telling. A story about the 14er they climbed, or when they saw Half Dome at sunrise for the first time. It’s unbelievably fulfilling to help guide and curate elopements and adventurous weddings.
The experience is more intimate for the couple—but it’s also more intimate for us. We play a much larger role in elopements and intimate weddings than we did years ago. Couples rely on us and our experience to really make the most out of a National Park/beautiful landscape. The places we work have had a tremendous impact on our life. We love getting to share that with our couples.

Hi There! I’m JACLYN.
I absolutely love being on the road exploring and hiking in new places. I feel most at home in the mountains, but you’ll find me traveling all over the US and overseas. My most adventurous hike (and elopement) was summiting Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. My happy places are Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park and Bacalar, Mexico (where Ryan proposed to me).
Hey! I’m RYAN.
Before falling madly in love with Jaclyn and starting More Van Anything, I lived in Spain and flew around the world on 13 one-way flights. I love being outside of my comfort zone exploring new trails or new countries. My most adventurous hike was a 50+ mile overnight solo-hike over the Pyrenees Mountains in France/Spain. My happy places are Sopelana Beach in Bilbao, Spain and Sedona, Arizona.
As a couple, we’ve lived in 5 states, and even within a National Park (Grand Teton National Park). We’re both vegetarians, minimalists, and we both have really meaningful tattoos. We spent 2018 living and traveling in our van Moonbeam to explore more of the West. We currently live in Colorado exploring the Rocky Mountains and working towards our future business goals. While we spent most of our time hiking, we also enjoy snuggling up to our favorite shows and working on personal projects. We’ll be exploring Europe this winter, but we’re also excited about planning a trip and exploring South America next!
