the love stories
“The moment we ended our first conversation with Bekah we knew she was the only person we wanted to photograph us on our wedding day. Her eye for capturing intimate moments is something not everyone possesses and she does so in the most meaningful ways. Her personality immediately calmed us down and her thoughtfulness made this experience truly one we won't forget. As we finished our first look moment she had us just take a few big breathes and really be in the moment that this is us and our day and it brought us to tears. During our portraits, it started to rain and Bekah ran to her car, grabbed umbrellas, and we continued to have a great time! During our reception my dress bustle broke and there was Bekah again, saving the day with safety pins. She even brought her own dog treats for our dog to enjoy during the day too!"
"Choosing Bekah was a no brainer. Not only is she extremely hardworking and talented, but she has the sweetest, kindest soul. She genuinely cares about each couple and puts so much effort in her edits. We just got our wedding photos back and we are so pleased and amazed. We have gotten countless compliments. She is also extremely organized. I filled out a questionnaire before the wedding day, so she knew generally what pictures I definitely wanted, but what's more is she was amazing at remembering pictures I had asked for day of on the fly! You will not be disappointed. We cannot thank her enough!!"
- Hannah & Jamal
"From the moment my husband and I found Bekah’s instagram/portfolio online we were so blown away and very eager to get in touch with her. She is so kind and has such a calming presence, we felt like we’d known her forever and couldn’t wait to work together. Throughout the entire process she was absolutely amazing, kept open communication with us, helped us choose photos locations, and was always supportive and accommodating. When our wedding finally came she went totally above and beyond for us and made sure that no matter what was happening we took the time to pause and truly enjoy each moment. Bekah’s talent is just unreal and we are so grateful to have gotten the opportunity to work with her. Her presence her was truly one of the greatest highlights of our wedding. Please don’t hesitate and hire Bekah, it’ll be one of the best things you do!"

I help you plan and create the perfect day and make sure all the details are in order with a full elopement day timeline. I use detailed questionnaires to customize the process to your unique relationship, personalities, and priorities.
Timeline & Questionnaires
I'll do lots of research on any permits and passes needed for your location to make sure your wedding is totally legit. Plus I'll deep dive and find lots of fun activities, lodging, and food options to really bring your day to life!
Research & Permits
I'll help you find the perfect vendor team for your unique elopement experience. You'll have lots of trusted options to choose from florists to stylists, officiants, and more!
I put boots to the ground and do extensive location research and scouting for all the best spots, and then send you a custom guide of options to choose from. Your locations will set the tone for the rest of your day!
I'll get to know you and support you throughout the whole process. We'll hop on video chats, exchange emails or texts, or even grabbing a drink together- I'm here in whatever way works best for you.
Just to make sure your experience is extra special from start to finish, I sprinkle in a few surprises along the way to help you soak it all in and remember this season forever.
All of this comes together to make sure we're
celebrating your special day, by telling your story, in your unique way.
If you don't want to hire someone else to officiate your ceremony, you may have the option for me to marry you! While the legalities of this vary by location, many places allow for couples to use someone who's ordained online. This might be a good option if you don't want a formal ceremony and it will only be the three of us. While my priority is photographing, I can also take care of signing the paperwork. Easy breezy. :)
A built-in officiant
Within 1-2 days from your elopement you’ll receive an online gallery of 10-20 images to keep the party going!

Are you planning an epic elopement adventure in your dream destination location? I LOVE exploring new places and traveling across the U.S. for destination elopements.
My travel costs are included in every package so you never pay extra or have to worry about hidden fees!
Half-day, full-day, and multi-day adventure package options are available. The more time we have, the more we can capture every happy tear, belly laugh, and heart-skipping moment. To document your once-in-a-lifetime destination elopement, most couples spend around $6,000.
Do you and your partner want to get married in Maryland, DC, Virginia (DMV), or somewhere close by? I have three packages for elopements within two hours of Baltimore.
You deserve the relaxed and un-rushed wedding day of your dreams! To do that, my packages range from half day to full day photo coverage. Pricing starts at $3,500 with most of my couples booking 8 hour coverage with an average spend of $4,500 to capture their full elopement experience.
You’ll get sneak peeks within 1-2 days of your elopement, and the whole gallery within 8 weeks. You can purchase prints and albums right through your gallery shop to create your first family heirlooms! When your memories live on your walls and coffee table you can relive them everyday.
This is where we do the dang thing! I’ll be with you through all the moments you want captured in the most relaxed and natural way. It is such an honor for me to be invited into these moments and I can’t wait to celebrate with you!
Now the real fun begins! I’ll send you my extensive Elopement Client Guide to look over as we start to plan your day. We’ll make sure everything will be taken care of so you can enjoy every minute of your wedding day.
I’ll reach out within 1-2 days to schedule a time for us to video chat. This is a great way for us to get to know each other a little bit more and answer any questions you may have.
If we feel like the perfect fit, I'll send over an online quote & contract. Once you've signed and paid the retainer, you're booked! Then, you’ll get a link to a secure client site where you can view all your information, contracts, invoices, and questionnaires anytime,
Get the ball rolling by submitting an inquiry through my contact form! Fill out as many details as you know right now (the more the better!) and we’ll jump right in!
Yes! I love when couples choose to include their closest people in their lives for a portion of their day.
For elopements, I generally recommend sticking to around 10 or fewer guests. With more guests there tends to be more restrictions and limitations involved.
Are you planning more of a traditional micro-wedding at a venue with 50 or fewer guests? I also offer packages that are more tailored to your specific wedding needs!
Contact me here or at email@example.com for a full pricing guide!
You might be wondering...
I truly believe that you deserve to have your entire elopement day documented from start to finish. There are so many small, beautiful, candid moments that you’ll want to remember but that can’t happen unless we allow plenty of time.
The more time you have, the less stressed and rushed you’ll be. The less rushed you are, the more you’re able to enjoy and be present in each moment. With more time and enjoyment of your day, you’ll get to have more natural, candid moments and that’s where the magic is!
Because of that, my smallest package includes up to four hours of photography coverage. If you want to use less you can, but I charge the same rate because I want to ensure to have the time and flexibility needed.
Absolutely! If you’re not sure where you want to elope I will help you through the process from start to finish. I’ll send a questionnaire to help you think through how you want everything to look and feel and then I’ll suggest locations based on your aesthetic, priorities, and date.
I will dig deep and find all the best spots while location scouting so you don’t have to! I’ll also send you a custom location guide with lots of options for your ceremony, portraits, and activities to make sure you have the most incredible experience that's aligned with your vision.
OMG YES PLEASE! I love dogs (I’ve got two crazy nuggets of my own), and it makes me so happy when couples include their pups in part of their elopement day.
Three things that help with this:
•I’ll bring lots of yummy treats for them 🙂
•I’ll make sure when location scouting to find options that are dog-friendly, because some trails and venues have animal restrictions
•Having a friend, family member, or professional dog handler along can be very helpful so that you can pass them off when needed.
Absolutely not! If hiking isn’t your thing or you don’t want to worry about getting too tired/sweaty on your elopement day, there are lots of other options to choose from! There are so many great locations in nature with beautiful views that are easily accessible via overlooks or short trails that we can use to get the adventure without the work. Note that the easier a spot is to get to, the more crowded it will be especially on weekends and evenings.
If you’re the “indoorsy” type or eloping in nature isn’t your thing, there are so many great options for city elopements nearby. From Baltimore to DC, Lancaster, and NYC there are charming, eclectic, gorgeous locations for every aesthetic or vibe you could want!
Cities also offer so many opportunities for incredible experiences and elopement activities. Want to explore a new neighborhood, walk through a museum, go to a winery/pub, or have a sunset cruise? A city elopement might be for you!
Don’t worry, everyone (including me!) feels like this sometimes!
Being in front of a camera can feel really vulnerable, but it is my job to help you feel comfortable and confident and be with you through the whole process. And I promise it’s going to be so much easier than you think!
While I love to get candid, natural moments at times I’ll give you direction and prompts to help you feel at ease knowing what to do and to help bring out natural emotions.
Your only job is to stay present and focused on each other and we will create some magic together! :)
You’ll start hearing this a lot, but with elopements, the answer is almost always "whatever you want!" If you want to have a close friend, family member, or minister officiate your ceremony you can absolutely choose to do so.
Some places like DC and PA also offer the option for you to self-officiate to keep it really private and personal. I am also ordained and in (most) places can sign your paperwork for you too.
If you’re going to be traveling and none of those options sound good to you, lots of couples also choose to take care of the legal paperwork beforehand so that don’t have to worry about anything on their elopement day. It’s up to you!
There is no need to stress about weather we can't control! The beauty of elopements is that they are flexible and unique each time. When you embrace the wilds of nature you can have an incredible day no matter the weather.
As long as it's not dangerous, we'll make the most of any conditions and go on! I've photographed elopements in the pouring rain that were so beautiful and memorable the couples said they wouldn't have changed a thing! That said, my priority is always for couples to feel comfortable and not stressed. If your timeline allows, we can watch the forecast and switch things around as needed and go to plan B or C.
Engagement sessions are a GREAT way to get some extra practice being in front of the camera and work together before the wedding day.
Plus you'll get some fun, laid-back photos of the two of you looking cool and casual (not just the selfies you're used to). Many couples also use their engagement session photos for save-the-dates or guestbooks!
You can choose from a standard one hour session or an extended adventure. The best sessions feel like you're doing a normal Sunday afternoon together and I just happen to be documenting it. 😊
- You can add an engagement session to any package!
EACH SESSION INCLUDES:
• Client outfit guide
• Location and planning assistance
• Online gallery of high-resolution edited images to view, print, and share for one year
