We absolutely LOVE that elopements allow us to spend so much portrait time with our couples. You likely chose to elope because killer photos are really important to you- and we LOVE that and are excited to create beautiful images with you.
If you’re eloping somewhere with lots of drive-time in between locations (like Yosemite, for example), we will scout and plan locations beforehand so that we don’t run out of sunlight trying to race to different places.
Regardless, plan on lots of walking around and hiking. Wear comfortable shoes! Many of our brides rock some cute hiking boots so that they can focus 100% on the moment and celebrating with their new spouse instead of worrying if they will trip or getting cactus in their feet. We also are totally down to let you run around barefoot too, if that’s your jam. We’d just stay away from heels
Disclaimer: If you’re using a videographer- we *HIGHLY* recommend scheduling extra portrait time if their wanting to use a drone. We LOVE drone shots and think they will make your video totally awesome, but they really take away from the romantic vibe. The reason being is that drones have a very loud, distinctively distracting buzzing sound. In our experience, it is very difficult for couples to relax and share this intimate time without being distracted by the noise. If you have any questions about this, let’s chat! This portrait time is for you, and we want to make sure it’s an awesome experience.
