About Us

PHOTOGRAPHERS | FILMMAKERS | TRAVEL GEEKS | & SPONTANEOUS PUN TELLERS

We're a husband & wife duo documenting elopements and intimate weddings in Colorado and the PNW. We met on a 7,000 mile road trip through Canada and eloped in Iceland! We live a simple life in the mountains these days--where Jaclyn works on her landscape paintings while Ryan continues to write and fly fish. We spend our free time exploring the outdoors, working on creative projects, and traveling.

Why We Document Elopements & Intimate Weddings

Our relationship started on the trail, hiking in beautiful places all over the West. These landscapes are where we fell in love, where we grew as a couple, and where we feel most at home. Documenting elopements is our way of spreading kindness, sharing our love for the outdoors, and helping couples be their true selves in some of the most beautiful places on earth.

We're incredibly grateful to have had the success and support from so many amazing couples. We continue to pour our hearts back into this business, sharing our passion for the outdoors and intentional weddings with the world--one happy couple at a time.

We met on a 7,000 mile road trip through Canada and the PNW.

After dating for 6 months, we moved to Grand Teton National Park together.

Wanting to help couples experience these beautiful places, we had our travel van, Moonbeam, built by our friends!

We found our home together in these mountains. And now we help our couples explore these places for their elopements & intimate weddings.
