"Sydney was everything we could've asked for from an elopement photographer... Since she grew up in Oregon she knew all of the hidden gems in the state, and we had a day that was intimate, without crowds, and had stunning views! She was so responsive, organized, and had our best interests at heart throughout the entire planning process! She's a photographer that REALLY LISTENS! To her, it was about us and our day, and she made that clear as we narrowed down locations, and activities! We had no idea how to plan an elopement, and she took all of the stress off of doing it ourselves. She has such a great understanding of what eloping couples need, and how to create a day that fits perfectly with our personalities. She truly took the time to get to know us, and by the time our day rolled around it felt like we were just hanging out with an old friend! I seriously cannot recommend Sydney enough - her photography and editing was flawless, but even more than that she crafted a day that was uniquely and perfectly us, I was blown away!
Sydney was the dream photographer, I can't imagine a better day and experience. Seriously, book her!!!
"I CRIED looking through my elopement photos, I loved them THAT much! Sydney was fast to respond, a great communicator, and began discussing locations before we even signed the contract! She knows Colorado so well, and understood that our day was about more than just photos. If you want emotional, adventurous, and thoughtful photos, Sydney is the way to go! Sydney took the time to get to know us beforehand. She met up with us when we visited from out of state, and the day of we were confident that she really understood our story. This came out in all the details of her photographs. From the story of my ring, to the kind of treats my dog responded best to, and she paired us perfectly with locations that fit our personalities and abilities. Sydney was INCREDIBLE with our pup! She knew the best poses and prompts, how to keep his attention, and understood his body language and when to give breaks. She also carried an invisible ink paw print pad so our pup could sign our marriage license!"

If you aren't seeing your location on my list, don't worry! I am always open to exploring new locations. I will arrive early to scout your dream location and some back ups. I research, plan, and will still find off the beaten path spots so your day can remain private and intimate!
Whether I'm headed to a new location or a spot I've photographed at hundreds of times, I follow the same process - I will make sure that it's pre-scouted and researched before your day!
My full day and mutli-day packages include heirloom albums meant to last lifetimes. Something tangible and real that you can pass onto your children or some really spoiled doggos!
These albums are custom designed by me after your elopement day so you don't have to stress about finding reliable printers, worry about quality, or put off picking out photos for months. This saves you tons of time and energy trying to create your own album, and instead you get a handcrafted token of your day sent right to your doorstep!
That's right... I take care of the design, ordering, printing, and shipping logistics so you two don't have to stress throughout the process!
And at the end of it all, you will have a handcrafted album created from the highest quality materials, leather bound, and photos printed on weighted premium paper!
I recommend booking at least 6 months before your elopement date! Couples have booked me a year in advance, as well as just a few months out - but keeping to that 6 month to one year rule of thumb ensures you get first choice of dates, vendors, locations, and lodging!
Every wedding is unique, but I typically promise 50-100 images per hour. Rest assured that I will send you all the special moments, and only edit out duplicate images and images that don’t meet my minimum standards.
One of the unique services I provide is sending you several high resolution sneak peeks within 24-48 hours of your adventure session or wedding. That way, you quickly have images to print and share on social media! The full gallery will be finished within 3-4 weeks.
Typically! Whether or not you hike in your wedding attire totally depends on what you're wearing, how difficult the hike is, and your hiking abilities. You will need comfortable hiking shoes either way. Changing when you reach the viewpoint is an option too! I have a pop-up tent if you prefer more privacy!
Yes! I service the entire US and international destinations as well! You are welcome to book me for anywhere in the world! Please, don't be afraid to reach out and see if we can make it work!
It all depends on the location you choose! If you're thinking about eloping in a National Park, State Park, or BLM land you can definitely plan on needing a permit. We'll need to apply for these at least 60 days in advance, so let's plan your date accordingly!
I'm happy to accommodate up to 15 guests and find ways to include them! Keep in mind, the more guests that you add the fewer location options we have.
Of course! I will provide you with dog-friendly location options, tips and tricks to train your pup for your elopement, and if you're eloping in Colorado I'll bring a paw print pad so your pup can sign your marriage license!
