If you'd rather say your vows on top of a mountain than have hundreds of people staring at you as you walk down the aisle, you're in the right spot.
Let's create an adventure elopement experience that's authentically & unapologetically YOU.
What does it look like? What activities are you doing? Are you hiking to the top of your favorite peak? Sipping champagne at the top of a fire lookout?
There is no reason why you shouldn't create your elopement day the same way. Picture your epic adventure wedding experience, completely unique to the two of you. You show up and have the time of your lives, and I'll document your day that's unlike any other.
I'm so stoked you're here! I'm a former outdoor guide turned Washington adventure elopement photographer. My goal is to make sure that couples who love our wild areas are able to create an elopement experience in Washington that feels authentic and true to themselves in the great outdoors — the places they connect with most.
Your wedding day adventure, exactly how you want it.
No holds barred.
Your wedding day is so much more than just a party or a "show" you put on for hundreds of people. It's an adventure — a day full of memories, doing exactly what makes you happy and nothing else.
I truly believe that saying your vows in the beauty of the great outdoors, surrounded by a place you love and connect with, is one of the coolest things you can do on your elopement day. Where would you go if you put no limits on this day?

"Janelle was a sweet ball of positive energy the whole long day. She made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout. It was a time that we could spend together creating memories that were intimate and personal. We were the center of attention while also feeling like we were the only two people there. It was an amazing and special experience that we'll never forget."

"It was an absolute pleasure to work with you! You did an excellent job capturing the details of our big day and going with the flow of things on our second day of shooting. We are so thankful that you were happy to hike down to the river after we got our truck stuck! The quality of pictures you produced is outstanding and we will treasure them for all the years to come."

"Janelle was such a blast to work with. My partner and I had never gotten photos done professionally, and we both were nervous about it being awkward with posing etc. Janelle made this so incredibly easy. Instead of posing, it was so natural and fun. She encouraged us to be authentically us and act as if she wasn’t there. She helped us figure out different poses, and was super good at instructing when we needed, and that was so reassuring. She helped us with location, and we did multiple different spots! The photos turned out amazing, and we had so much fun working with her. Would absolutely do it again."
