DO YOU FEEL LIKE A TRADITIONAL WEDDING ISN'T FOR YOU BECAUSE:
- You feel like you're planning a party for your guests instead of a meaningful day for YOU
- You are pressured to invite people you barely know to make THEM happy
- You want a "just us" experience
- You want to ditch the wedding day stress and meaningless traditions
- You want to say: "I wish our wedding day never ended," instead of: "I'm so glad that's over."
WHAT EXACTLY IS
Elopements are simply all about what you want for your wedding day. It's not about sneaking off and getting married in secret. It's about creating a day all about you, so that it's literally the best day ever! You'll look back on it for years to come and you'll be able to remember the things that matter most. And I'll be there to help you plan your dream day every step of the way.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU
When you choose to elope, you open up a whole new door of possibilities now that you don't have to stick to the standard of traditional weddings.
It's about freedom to choose what you want for your one special day. Wanna hike to the top of a mountain for private vows that only the two of you can hear? Wanna do something on your bucket list for your wedding day? Make it a day that you'll want to relive again and again. Whatever it is, I'll be your biggest support the whole way and help you make it happen!

My approach to documenting your day is capturing all of the main moments along with everything in between. I'll be like a fly on the wall capturing everything in a documentary way, from the way you lace up your hiking boots with your wedding dress to saying heartfelt vows to each other, to celebrating with smores by a fire at the end of the night. You'll have the freedom to enjoy your day without worrying about smiling and posing for photos, it will all come naturally.

WHAT'S IT LIKE TO ELOPE WITH KARLIE?
"We just eloped in May and Karlie was our photographer again. She did such an incredible job making sure we had everything we needed for the day. She encouraged us to just enjoy the day and not worry about any stress. She helped us plan different activities to do and incorporate things we enjoy like fishing.
Karlie was absolutely fantastic and got all the photos we could have hoped for. She was all in for our crazy adventure of doing our ceremony in the middle of the woods, to driving to another location to fish and have a picnic, then joining us to have a small reception with our family and friends. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to make our day so special!"
