Eloping Is Way Less Stressful than Planning a Big Wedding

This day is all about you and your partner. If you want to bring guests, do it! If you want it to just be the two of you, do that! Either way, planning will be anything but stressful. You’ll get to pick things that sound perfect for just the two of you; no people-pleasing here!

You’re not cookie cutter people, so there won’t be any cookie cutter wedding!

No seating charts

No family drama

no performance pressure

You Deserve to Go Anywhere and Do Anything...

IMAGINE YOUR DREAM DAY:

Is it in the mountains or on a beach?

South America or Europe or the USA?

Dinner and drinks or a picnic lunch?

A bonfire with s’mores or a first dance with champagne?

What about a helicopter ride over Icelandic waterfalls?

You can literally go anywhere and do anything. Like I said before: If you can dream it, we can do it. Not only do I have a degree in photography, but I have tons of travel experience, myself. I can help you plan your epic elopement day anywhere in the world! (I also speak Spanish!)

what the heck will we do all day?

Oh, you're probably wondering...

You’ll smile and laugh until your face hurts. I’ll cry because I always do. You might, too! You’ll have the time of your lives. And you can do anything your heart desires. The best adventures go on forever, so why shouldn’t you start your marriage with one that lasts as long as it can?!

Honestly… Anything you want!

BEHIND THE LENS

Hi, I’m Emily, your guide to an authentic, intimate, and epic destination elopement day.

Are you a hopeless romantic? I totally believe in soulmates and I’m here to help you marry the love of your life in the great outdoors. 

Combining my passion for epic landscapes, documenting love stories (I LOVE LOVE STORIES!), and equality for every human being, I’m on a mission to guide couples of all colors and backgrounds to the wedding day of your dreams. Imagine a day without judgment, without pressure, and without stress; a day to connect with each other in the most spectacular place on earth... 

BEST OF ALL? 
You'll leave with the most epic pictures you’ve ever seen.

HOW IT WORKS

From the moment you inquire, we’ll work together to create the day of your dreams. I’ll send you a questionnaire that helps me to get to know you both and helps give me a vision for your day.

Did We Just Become Best Friends?

01. getting to know you

After taking a close look at your questionnaire and talking with you guys on the phone, I’ll come up with some custom options for locations that are just for you. Whether you know where you want to elope or not, I’ll send you a few customized and detailed locations that hit everything you’re looking for.

Location Ideas Just For You

02. tailored expert suggestions

Once you’ve decided on the place for your epic day, I’ll help connect you with the people who are going to help make it amazing. Think florists, makeup artists, private chefs, and anything else your heart desires. (Helicopter tours, hot air balloon pilots, pastry chefs???)

Vendor Suggestions

03. creating your dream team

Once we’ve done all the dreaming we can do, I’ll help create a specialized timeline just for you. It will be detailed and specific, and will include everything your heart desires for your special day.

It’s Timeline Time

04. planned to perfection

I’m here to help with whatever you need! I have access to several worldwide elopement photographer groups, so I can help with finding an AirBnB you’ll be super stoked about or help with permits for your elopement day. If you need assistance, I’m here for it. I’m also a legal officiant, so I can sign your marriage license and take your pictures! The unending access doesn’t just stop with me. You’ll have access to your photos for the rest of your life! All of your edited images will be up on an easy to access online gallery for you to download--These are full resolution files for you to print, use on social media, whatever you want!

Unending access

05. so much more than just photography

Excited already?
Me too!

Finally, you’ll get an award winning photographer to document and tell the story of your elopement day. By the time we get to that amazing day, we’ll feel like best friends, so it will feel super natural having me along. Your pictures will tell the story of the best damn day of your lives so that you can relive it over and over again.

faq

need more info?

Are travel fees an additional cost?

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!)

Do you only shoot elopements?

I shoot all types of couple photos! From surprise proposals, engagement pictures, and adventure sessions to elopements, micro weddings, and vow renewals, if you need pictures with the love of your life, I'm there to document it!

We know we want to elope, but we aren’t sure where. Can you help us find a place?

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.

Should I hire a wedding planner?

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.

What if you’ve never been to where we want to elope?

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!

Do you shoot big weddings?

I don’t! I want every couple to get married just how they want, but my experience is in helping couples with 20 or less guests get married.

How do we know how much photography coverage we need?

In our first phone consultation (before you even book!), we’ll talk all about that! We’ll talk about the day you’re dreaming of and what that might look like, including how long that day will last. (I’m all about go big or go home!)

Do we hike in our wedding clothes (and do we have to hike)?

This is totally up to you! Hiking is for some couples and not for others. An adventure elopement doesn’t have to include hiking at all! (Can you say helicopter elopement on a glacier???!) As for what you wear, I definitely have couples who choose to wear their wedding gear for the entirety of their elopement day and also couples who choose to hike in hiking clothes, then change for their ceremony. Whatever feels right to you is fine! (And yes, I’ll help you pack your wedding dress and veil when it comes time. Along with your bouquet…)

Do you shoot LGBTQIA+ weddings?

Absofreakinglutely! I am a member of the queer community and feel strongly that love is love and that love wins! I believe in equality for all human beings, and that definitely includes same-sex couples and anybody else on the rainbow spectrum!

"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!!"

- Megan

"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!"

- Amy

"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."

- Lucas

"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."

- Rufus

"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."

- Miriam
