Eloping Is Way Less Stressful than Planning a Big Wedding

THIS IS YOUR DESTINATION ELOPEMENT

A beach bonfire in a hidden cove
A barefoot walk through a wildflower meadow
A champagne toast on a windswept cliff
A fairytale wedding for two

That’s the beauty of eloping in nature—it can be absolutely anything and anywhere. When you ditch the stress and the one-size-fits-all approach of traditional weddings, you find space to make every moment unique and centered on your story. 

Which is great! And also maybe a little bit overwhelming. That’s where I come in. As your guide, I love to share my expertise and research skills so your elopement isn’t just a wedding with an epic backdrop, but a true, intimate experience surrounded by the wonders of nature. 

That experience honors the emotion of the day and the location that speaks to your soul. When you look back on your photos, I want you to recognize images that are saturated with the romantic, organic beauty of this time and this place.

Oh my god, yes. Tell me more.



Are you freaking kidding me? Yes! I’m in. I’ll be there to capture your day as it unfolds with authenticity and emotion.

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 deserve a wedding day that sparks a fire in your soul
 
A day to celebrate and remember, surrounded by the natural scenery you long to explore together 
 
I want you to create a wedding that honors your choices, uplifts your love, and envelops you in an unforgettable landscape. 
 
If you’re like me—and if you’re here, I think you are—you see this wild, wonderful world as a sanctuary. You can feel the heartbeat of the earth every time you lose yourself in nature. 
 



Everything I do as your photographer is about supporting couples like you as you commit to each other in the most beautiful places on earth.

I'm ready. Are you?

I CAN'T THINK OF ANY BETTER PLACE TO EXCHANGE YOUR VOWS TO LOVE, HONOR, AND RESPECT EACH OTHER THAN IN SUCH A SACRED SPACE AS NATURE.

HOW IT WORKS

Who’s hyped for you? ME. I am a big ol’ softy for love stories, and you better believe I’ll celebrate yours any way you want. We’ll talk about what you want—and don’t—for your elopement, and I’ll give you helpful questionnaires so we can start the planning process. 


1. Tell me your story

This wild, wonderful world is your venue. You can rely on me to use my research skills and expertise to scout out the best location for you. But can I tell you a secret? I don’t have a favorite place to shoot, because every new place has something that makes it perfect and unique. So my favorite location? It’s the last place I’ve been, especially if it’s the last place I’ve been with you. I am a seasoned traveler, though, so I can definitely help you sift through many different locations until we find one that's just right for the two of you.

2. Picking your perfect location

I know how important it is to trust your vendors—they’re helping you pull off one epic day! I’ll give you my recommendations for anything you need, no matter where your elopement is taking you. Flowers, pastry chefs … maybe even helicopter pilots. I can tap into a worldwide network of elopement photographers to find exactly what you need. You can rely on me to put all my heart and soul into guiding you through the planning process. Bonus! I’m also a legal officiant in most locations, so I can help you make that marriage official.

03. creating the team

Nature is wild and raw. It’s one of the reasons I’m so drawn to it, and I bet you are too. That also means every plan we come up with together, we’ll also create a plan B … C … and D. Don’t think of them as back-up plans, think of them as new adventures. If it’s raining at the beach, we’ll duck into the shrouded, cool woods for some sweet photos under the forest canopy.

04. customizing your timeline

Your day is yours. I’m there to support you, not run the show. So you can trust that I will honor and uplift every decision you make and be your advocate in any way you need. Sometimes, that means giving you the tools to talk to family and friends about your decision to elope. Never forget this—no one has the right to demand influence or to be at your wedding. No one.

05. Chase down your daydreams

Excited already?
Me too!

My background in photography means I know all the details of perfect posing and using the light. In fact, it’s something I understand innately. But posing is so not natural for most people. Instead, I’ll use my knowledge to document your natural interactions while also helping you feel your absolute best. You can trust that I’ll always be close by to capture the emotions and epic surroundings, but I also know how to fade into the background so you can express yourselves freely. After your elopement, you’ll have lifetime access to your fully edited images in a private, online, downloadable gallery.

06. A natural elopement

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 15 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 actually do not! I want every couple to get married just how they want, but my experience is in helping couples with 15 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. 

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
