Eloping is an experience for just you as a couple. It’s your special day with each other and your celebration! It's all about you as a couple and what you want to do together.
When you elope, your experience can be purely authentic to you as a couple. It can include anything and everything you love. It’s just for you! IF YOU CAN DREAM IT, WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Your elopement day (and ceremony, especially) will be intimate and intentional. This is only about the two of you, so you do you!
With an elopement, there will be no family drama on your wedding day. You don’t have to please anyone, worry about family dynamics, or feel any pressure to do anything that you, as a couple, don’t want to do. This day is all about you and your love.
Your elopement will be all about the experience. This isn’t about table runners and place settings! It’s about being somewhere you love, out in nature, and having the time of your life. (Then you'll come home to some pretty epic pictures that document that once in a lifetime day!)
let's make it happen
From start to finish, we’ll work together to create an experience that makes all of your dreams come true. Seriously. All of them!
We'll be in touch regularly and get to be best friends by talking, texting, emailing, zooming, and FaceTiming to plan your epic elopement day.
I’ll help you to plan every last detail of your elopement day, with as much or as little input as you desire or need.
Anywhere you want, anywhere in the world, you’ll marry your partner focusing on the two of you just being together, sharing the day of your dreams together.
I'll ensure that there's no stress about timing, people, drama, or what other people think. This is all about the two of you. It'll be intimate, dreamy, and epic... A once in a lifetime experience, just as your wedding day should be.
We'll adventure together anywhere in the US and you'll go home with the most epic elopement wedding photos by which you can remember it!

No photographer travel fees!
NO! There are no additional costs for my personal travel. (If your elopement includes something awesome like a hot air balloon or helicopter ride, boat, etc., those costs will, of course, be additional!)
I shoot all types of couple photos! From surprise proposals, engagement pictures, and adventure sessions to elopements and vow renewals, if you need pictures with the love of your life, I’ll be there!
Absolutely! I’m not just an elopement photographer; I’m an elopement photographer and guide! One of my favorite things to do is to help couples find their dream location for their special day. From the PNW to New Mexico to New Zealand or Iceland, I can help you find that perfect spot for you to say, “I do,” with your soulmate. We’ll work together to turn your dream vision into reality.
No, you won't need a wedding planner at all! Because I only photograph elopements with a total of 20 people or less, I can help you with anything you need. I can recommend vendors that will make your elopement day exactly what you’re picturing (design, florists, bakers, officiants, hair, makeup, etc). As mentioned above, I can recommend locations and give you ideas for how you might want to spend your special day, as well as be a guide for things like which airport to fly into and where to stay. I will be there throughout the whole planning process as your guide.
Not only do I help eloping couples plan trips around the country and around the world, I am also a very experienced traveler, myself! This is a part of the job that I absolutely love. I have many resources, including several worldwide networks of photographers and vendors at my disposal, to make your trip absolutely epic. In addition, I am bilingual, so if you’re traveling to a Spanish-speaking country, I’ve got you more than covered! Part of why I love my job is because I get to visit new places all over the world. Let’s explore together!

"Ryan and I had the wonderful honor of getting to work with Emily. This was my first ever photoshoot and I had an unforgettable time. Emily was in constant contact with Ryan making sure everything was set up. The day of the photoshoot was absolutely magical. I had the time of my life!!! Emily did such a beautiful job and when she was taking pictures, it almost felt like she was not there. It felt so natural. Emily captured the most magical pictures. She captured every moment and every expression and the best part of it all is she got to share the special moment with us. I would recommend Diamond Elopements to anyone who is looking to take engagement or wedding pictures. Emily is kind hearted, so full of life and enthusiastic and such a pleasure to work with!! Thank you for taking the most memorable pictures of my life!!"
"Emily was so fun to work with! She created an environment where we felt comfortable and could be ourselves. She is highly skilled and knows how to create beautiful images. You'll be in good hands with this creative professional!"
"Emily is such an amazing photographer, but more importantly she makes you feel really comfortable and confident in any circumstance or environment. If you want not only great pictures but also artistic and thoughtful record of incredible moments of your life, that's the person that can do that for you."
"Emily is a sensational photographer. It's clear that she knows her craft thoroughly, which is evident in the way her photos turn out. But many people can take nice pictures without having the intangibles of a great photographer. Emily has a sixth sense for what environment will match our aesthetic. She has a great attention to detail when editing photos. Most importantly, she is capable of making people feel totally comfortable in front of a camera (take it from me, this is no small feat), which makes the photos look authentic and natural.
I would recommend Emily to anyone who wishes to capture their most important events forever."
"Have you ever felt like a goddess? Or like you were living the most beautiful story in the world? You will with Emily.
She's there for the experience. She knows what being in love is like and what feeling incredible looks like. She sets up your experience, then melts into the background and empowers you to focus on yourselves. She gives you permission to be on top of the world."
