Servicing the PNW + Worldwide

Bend, Oregon elopement photographer

You crave a wedding experience. I wanna give it to you.

You found the “who” you’ll be spending the rest of your life with. Now it’s time to plan the “how” of the day you make that vow. You're looking for something that is bigger than anything you've ever experienced, and ready to create a unique day that is all about doing whatever the hell you want. A wedding experience that is unique to the two of you and makes you get that "we just summited the freaking mountain" feeling. 

You’re kicking around the idea of eloping. But maybe you’re not convinced?


Documenting the “you” you are together

Here’s what eloping can look like:

… A day that’s bigger than tradition, with no strict timelines or rituals. Just the two of you, enjoying every moment.

… A day you actually experience together, built on the depth of your connection. No distractions, just photos of you living your dream day.

… A day that is stress-free and packed with meaning. One where you get to be fully yourselves and lookin’ good while doing it.

You see a stranger’s puppy & it takes everything in you not to run up & cuddle it.

Your dress gets dirt on it, and you shrug.

You think ice cream & wine is always an acceptable dinner option. Always.

You LIVE for the feeling of sunshine on your skin & wind in your hair.

You’re already screaming YASSSS WHERE DO I BOOK YOU?

we are so happy she was able to catch us immediately afterwards! And in the snow! We are so full of love and she truly found a way to capture it, and us just as we are together. I will cherish these photos forever, and I am so glad we invested in her. She is professional, friendly, and so great at putting you at ease- even if you have never been behind a camera before. I will recommend her to anyone.”

My partner and I last minute decided to elope 

I’m not technically a wedding planner. I'm a wildly passionate elopement photographer who happens to plan elopements too. Named Emilee. Hi, I’m Emilee. (I’m really good at this, promise.) 

Honesty time: I spent a lot of my teens and early 20s both running to new experiences and running from the not-so-great ones. I spent a year in Alaska photographing helicopter elopements, spent all of COVID living in a van in Utah, and have road-tripped across this beautiful country more times than I can count. While the photos and memories I have are priceless, I’m retiring my running shoes because I have officially set up my home base in Bend, Oregon.

I love this job more than anything I’ve ever done. And I’ve done a lot of things. I feel like I’ve had a lot of “mountaintop” experiences in life and I want to make sure your wedding day is nothing less than the best day you’ve ever had. If you wanna know more, head here.

Hey friend

HIRE EMILEE! I found Emilee on Instagram shortly after getting engaged, entered a giveaway she was having for an engagement shoot and ended up winning. After our engagement session, my then fiancé and I left saying how much fun we had and how much we loved working with Emilee. We were already saying we wanted to hire her for our wedding, but after getting our photos back we were 100% sold! She led us through all of the posing and we never felt awkward or like we didn't know what to do.
When it came time for our wedding we hired her and she was SO HELPFUL. She met with us and helped us plan an entire timeline for the day around what we wanted to do, and even brought up stuff we had not thought of yet. She gets back to you timely and always offers to help as much as she can.
The day of the wedding she was early, kept us on time and captured every single moment. Her eye for photography is a gift and I am so glad I have all of the photos that I do to look back on and remember every detail of our wedding day. Her editing style is a dream and looks modern yet timeless, all at the same time.
Emilee is also incredible to be around, she hypes you up, keeps things light and doesn't let you stress. All of our guests commented on how cool she was at the reception and everyone loved her!
Basically, Emilee is the absolute best and I cannot recommend her enough!
