I totally get it. A big wedding just doesn't give you all the feels. Eloping is exciting, it's adventurous, it's a little more YOU. But where do you even start?

THAT'S WHERE I COME IN. An elopement photographer based in Vermont, but serving destinations worldwide. I'm here because I love nothing more than making your vision come to life and guiding you in creating a true wedding experience that you will remember for all of your days.

You understand that relationships are strengthened by sharing in experiences together, and that's exactly what you want for your wedding day. A day where you can spend quality time with your partner instead of just a few quick moments. You want to spend the entire day together, creating lifelong memories filled with love and adventure.

A big wedding just doesn't get you excited and perhaps brings about too much anxiety. You'd rather have a smaller, more intimate day that focuses not on the guest list and catering but on all the reasons you're choosing spend forever together.

You both love nature and the outdoors and are wanting to celebrate your day in a way that speaks to the two of you. You want to feel relaxed, but alive! You want to listen to the birds, to the waves, to the wind. You want to enjoy the view and allow time to pass slowly as you hold each other in your arms, letting the moment sink in.

adventure and intention.

An elopement is a 'unique to you' wedding day with no expectations. And I'm here to guide you through it all - from finding scenic locations to filling your day with activities that speak to you, capturing all the little moments that make this day so unbelievably special.

"Better than I could have ever imagined...

Spending time with Kate felt like meeting up with an old friend. We received our sneak peek photos yesterday and just WOW!!! The overwhelming love and joy of the day showcased flawlessly in each shot-nothing felt posed or forced.

My husband and I knew we wanted an intimate ceremony for our elopement so we could be present and intentional with our attention, time, and space on that day. We highly recommend hiring Kate if you want to feel completely relaxed with your photographer on your day. You will have timeless and gorgeous photos that include natural beauty of the world and capture the love between you and your partner.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about this human and her natural talent."
