FOR Couples who want a truly unique wedding day experience focused entirely on each other

Adventure Elopement & Intimate Wedding Photographer

Why Elope?

Getting Married should be...

Intimate & Meaningful

The people you choose to be apart of your elopement or wedding day should be those you truly can't live without. Eloping or choosing an intimate wedding allows you to focus just on the two of you and your relationship on the day you get married.

Fun & Stress-free

The day you get married does not need to be adhered to any expectations! Letting go of the pressures of throwing a big production for your guests truly allows you to be more present in the moment. Make this day the most fun day you can imagine!

Why Elope?

Getting Married should be...

By choosing an elopement or intimate wedding, you can create a day that truly reflects who you are as a couple! You don't need to follow traditions that don't speak to you. At the end of the day, your marriage is about your love for each other and the life you want to build together. 

Why Elope?

Getting Married should be...

Authentic & Intentional

Adventure Awaits!

The mountains are calling.
They're ready to be your witness.

How you get married matters. You only get to do this once. Throw out the rule book. Don't worry about other people's expectations. Imagine the best day, from the moment you wake up, to the moment your head hits the pillow. What do you want to do? What do you want to see? Everyone has a different idea of what the BEST day can be. Your wedding day is not about what others are doing, its about what YOU want to do. Do you want to have coffee by the water and then take the kayak out for a spin? Do you want to have brunch with your family and spend the evening hiking to your sunset ceremony location? Do you want to say "I do" under the stars? Do you want to go skydiving or take a ride in a hot air balloon? This is YOUR wedding day and should be a true reflection of who are you as a couple.  

My Philosophy ⟶

My heart is all about connection & authenticity. I'm not here for the ultra-posed, smiling at the camera photos. Each wedding does have a time and place for formal photos, but I like to treat each wedding and elopement as a story; a visual story that moves your soul. One that makes you nostalgic. One that illustrates your rich, authentic world. One that represents the heart of you and your fiancé. I will never pose you in a way that isn't true to who you are. I care about your authentic personalities and your own personal connection with each other. My goal is to show exactly what your relationship is like though photos and storytelling.

I started out 10 years ago photographing large, traditional weddings. And over the years, I began to realize that it wasn't what I wanted for my own wedding.  One of the bigger realizations I had was that the traditional weddings really required a lot of time to be set aside for posed images. These days just started feeling too focused on pretty photos and less focused on spending quality time with their partner and families. My goals are to not only help you plan your wedding from the moment you contact me, but to guide you through the photography portions so they feel seamless without making a huge production of it. I want to document your wedding day and give you the space to enjoy the day that you intentionally created for yourselves! 

Welcome, I'm Bailey

Hi! I'm Bailey!

I fell in love with photography 10 years ago when I photographed my first traditional wedding. But it wasn't until 2016 that I fell in love with the intimate and authentic nature of elopements.
