Eloping is gonna be one of the coolest things you do in your life, if not the coolest thing! Eloping opens up so many opportunities to celebrate the way you want and to literally have the best day ever!

So, why is eloping the best?

It's your day, your way. It's not about what your parents or grandparents want you to do. It's not about following traditions that don't make sense, and it's not about paying for a huge guest list of people and catering to them, some of which you may not know that well. Eloping allows you to only have the people that matter, whether that just be you and your other half, or about 20 other people that matter the most to YOU.
Plus, it's the most meaningful way out there to get married! You pick what you love, and what you would love to experience. You plan your day full of exciting things that make you happy. And at the end of it all, instead of saying, "I'm so glad that's over with," you will be saying "I wish our day never ended."

Ever since I found out what elopements can be, I've been hooked. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, and I can't believe how many pretty places there are for potential elopements.

As a kid, my dad always took us into the mountains, and it felt like a whole new world up there. I am a huge advocate for the Pacific Northwest, and seeing all the amazing places it has to offer.


From oceans to lush green forests, and from mountaintops with breathtaking views to alpine lakes, if you have a place in mind, I can help you find the perfect spot. My goal is to always be finding new places to explore. Your elopement or adventure wedding can be super beautiful and meaningful to you!

Before I get into pricing, I thought I would go into the importance of an all day elopement. The biggest reason being, it's your wedding day! Why should an elopement wedding day be any shorter than a traditional wedding? You wouldn't hire a photographer for a traditional wedding for only 1-2 hours. That just sounds crazy! The same applies for elopements. You get the opportunity to fill your whole day up with things that make you happy! Plus, wedding days fly by! If you only had a couple hours worth of coverage, it wouldn't feel as special because it would end so fast!
Give yourself the opportunity to celebrate all day long because you deserve it. Let yourself just soak up the day to be able to remember how special your day was for years to come! Plus, having extra time is just nice to have. Perhaps you decide an unplanned walk on the beach or by a river, you won't have to say, "Oh we don't have time for that." You can just do it and watch the sunset change the color of the mountaintops together!

Hey there! I'm Karlie! I am a natural light photographer based here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am a huge chocolate fanatic, bird nerd, and crazy cat lady at heart. I was born here in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, on the first day of August. My parents have always told me how lucky I am to have been born here and to grow up here, and man were they right! I am so happy to have been raised here, it's so incredibly beautiful! I love all the elements of nature found here in the Pacific Northwest. I love that it gets to be incorporated into my photographs.

Being able to incorporate nature into my photography has really elevated my photography. I have fallen in love with the element of incorporating adventure into my photography. Finding a beautiful spot in nature and having my subjects amongst it makes for such beautiful images! Adventuring allows for storytelling, and you experience something beautiful yet memorable at the same time. I love freezing genuine moments in time, and being able to look back at those moments and relive them.

I also love getting to explore new places. A few of my favorite hobbies are hiking, kayaking, and birdwatching. I love working with others who are fun-loving and adventurous, which is a lot like me! I love just goofing around and having a great time with those that I get to work with.
