Planning an adventurous elopement + wedding can be a lot of work. So we made this online guide to hopefully answer most questions. Speaking of which…
Top 3 Questions:
How many photos can I expect?
You can expect 60 - 80 photos per hour of coverage for any session. Our photo turnaround time is 2 weeks. And all edited, high resolution photos are sent to you via an online gallery where you can download and print them as you please.
Beyond coverage, we also provide location guidance. We’ll send you a comprehensive questionnaire that helps better understand your plans. And in turn, we’ll send you an “ideal” timeline for best lighting, avoiding crowds, and hiking logistics.
WHAT’S THE PROCESS?
WE’LL EMAIL YOU SOON: We’ll email you as soon as we can. Usually we respond within 1-3 business days depending on the time of year. We’re busiest with bookings during the late fall and winter. And we’re busiest with sessions during September & October.
SOLIDIFY PLANS: Some clients have their adventurous elopement + wedding all planned out. Others look to us for guidance in choosing a location, or lining up their plans with our travel schedule. Either way, we need to figure out when & where.
LET’S CHAT: Let’s set up a video chat and talk about things! This can be at any stage in the process. Even just a few weeks before your elopement or wedding. Some couples like to chat before they book, while others simply don’t have the time until much later. Really, it’s just a simple video chat to get to know you better so that we’re not strangers when we first meet!
BOOK: Let us know when you’re ready to book, and we’ll send over a digital contract + invoice. Weddings require a 25% retainer, elopements and adventure sessions require a 50% retainer at booking. Our contract service automatically charges the remaining balance one week prior to your date. If you prefer installment plans, please let us know in advance. The contract is straightforward and easy to read. It helps set expectations for services & turnaround. If you have any questions while looking over it, just send over an email. We’re always happy to answer any questions!
QUESTIONNAIRE: 4-6 weeks prior to your date, you’ll receive an online questionnaire that better helps prepare for your big day. In return, we send over an “ideal” timeline + itinerary for best lighting, avoiding crowds, and hiking logistics. The timeline + itinerary is more of a helpful hand in planning out your day.
YOUR BIG DAY OR SESSION: Whether we meet at a visitor center, lodge, or trailhead—it’s finally the day!
SNEAK PEAKS: You’ll receive high-resolution sneak peaks of 8-10 images via our online gallery system. That way you can quickly share with friends + family on social media. You can also use the high res sneak peaks for save the dates if you need to print them super quick!
PHOTO DELIVERY: Your photos will be delivered 2 weeks after your session date via an online gallery system. You can share the link with friends & family, too. You can order prints directly through the online gallery, or use our contract as a personal print release for a local print company. We like the company our gallery uses a lot when it comes to photo lab prints. However, if you’re looking for home decor style prints—we’re in love with Artifact Uprising.
Dude you guys freaking rocked it!! The photos turned out AMAZING!!! We love them, and love the magic you work behind the lens. We had so much fun hiking and being adventurous with you guys and LOVE that you scored out such a cool spot. Can't wait to hang out again in Yosemite.

Jaclyn & Ryan were super friendly and easy to talk to! They made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera! The whole session was prepared and planned before we showed up so all we had to do was follow directions and laugh. They worked great with our puppy as well and we have a bunch of really great shots that capture her personality. We received our photos fast and all of the communication between us was super professional! They seem to be pretty down to earth people and we really enjoyed our night shooting with them and love every photo.
Sammi & Steven
When we were planning the engagement shoot they recommended meeting down in Moab, UT and of course we said yes! I couldn’t be happier with the way the shots turned out. We hiked around in our formal wear and had such a blast. Then the next morning we woke up at 4 AM to get ready and catch the sunrise. My fiancé is a little stiff in front of the camera but they were able to catch these perfect moments with him. Real smiles, real happiness, and real love. I was SHOOK at how great our engagements turned out. They come with a plan and execute it graciously. Every time I suggested something they were all for it. They are fun and silly and make you feel very comfortable and as if they were old friends.
