THE EXPERIENCE - WHAT IT'S LIKE TO WORK WITH ME
I am more than just your photographer. Need help hiking in your dress? Don't worry, I've got you covered. Need some snacks? You bet I got plenty of those!
Being your photographer is just the cherry on top! Of course I love taking photos, but I also love helping others and being there when you need someone. I help you to make sure you will have such an amazing wedding experience, that you will remember all the little details. That's the best part of eloping, you have time to soak in the things that matter. And I'll be there photographing it all.
I myself am a fun-loving, goofy, adventurous, go with the flow person. So those tend to be the people I like to work with most! I am there to capture the in-between moments of your day, as well as the main ones! My brand message is to "Tell Your Story Through Genuine Moments Frozen in Time." So the genuine moments that tell how you felt, the way your future spouse is smiling, and everything in between.
There's nothing like eloping in the mountains, the beach, or the desert for your wedding day. The options are endless when it comes to elopements, and that's why I love them so much! They give you the freedom to create the most meaningful and memorable day of your life, and being amongst epic landscapes makes it that much more memorable!
Let's get to adventuring!

Karlie is absolutely AMAZING! I would recommend her 100xs over. She’s incredibly sweet and easy going but still professional!

WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU BOOK ME
When you book me as your elopement photographer, I will be more than a photographer for you. As much as I love photographing elopements, I also love helping my couples include things that represent them on their elopement day, to make it a truly meaningful and unique day that isn't repeated over and over again!
Before you even book me, I like to hop on a quick phone call with you just to hear all about your day! I love learning what's most important to each and every one of my couples. I'm then able to craft a day around that, which makes it special and memorable to you.
Besides receiving beautiful images from me, I also do permit research for you, answer any questions you have, location scout for you before your elopement, include little details that you mentioned are special to you, create your timeline, send you some vendors if you need help finding some, and basically anything else you can think of! Anything to make the planning process a breeze for you so eloping is as stress free as possible!
Hey, it's me Karlie! I am an adventure elopement photographer based here in North Idaho, but will photograph you wherever your adventure is!

Do we have anything in common?!
I have loved taking pictures since I was 13 years old, starting off using my mom’s little Kodak point and shoot camera taking pictures of nearly anything, my cats, the birds outside, random objects around the house... anything to cure the itch to take a photo of something!
Over the years, I have also fallen in love with wildlife photography. I remember taking drives in the mountains and seeing some amazing wildlife, there and on road trips with my family. Nature is so beautiful, and being able to take elopement photos in it just ties everything that I love together and it turns into a memorable experience for everyone!
I am so passionate about creating wedding days that my couples will truly cherish. I am your biggest cheerleader in choosing to elope! I am so honored that I get to be by your side as you celebrate one of the biggest days of your life, your way!
I thought I would quickly introduce my other half - my husband, Keenan! We love spending all the time in the world together! We met in December 2014. He requested to follow me on Instagram, we met up a few days later at Skate Plaza with some mutual friends, and the rest is history! We dated for 2 years, and got married in February 2017!
We have two pitbulls (Maddie and Zyer) and two kitties (Jax and Oni)! They make up our little fur family and are the cutest (might be a little biased there). I'm just obsessed with them! If you want to see more of them, I post about them all the time on my Instagram stories! Go follow me there if you haven't already if you want to see all the cute photos of my fur babies and my elopement adventures!
