Hiking Adventure Elopement in the Sawtooth Mountains | Stanley, Idaho

I was finally able to visit the small town of Stanley Idaho, nestled beneath the Sawtooth Mountains. Savannah and Tyler found me on TikTok and Instagram, and when they told me they wanted to elope in Stanley, it worked out so well because I had already booked another elopement for Stanley for June 6, and these guys chose June 3 for their elopement date. So I had the privilege of photographing two elopements here in Stanley. These two love the outdoors and spending time in it, so Stanley was an absolutely perfect location for them to have their hiking adventure elopement.


The day started off with me meeting them in their cabin in Lowman, Idaho. They made breakfast together, and ate together outside with the golden sunshine radiating through the trees. The cabin had a patio table and chairs perfect for hosting their wedding day breakfast in the woods. Before we met up, I mentioned in the emails that they could have mimosas with their breakfast and Savannah was so excited for that, and they picked up some cute Mr. and Mrs. glasses for their mimosas. This is also where they got ready and had their first look together before we continued on for the rest of the day's adventures.

Along our drive back to the town of Stanley, we saw some wildlife and Savannah and Tyler loved the look of the wooden fences and so we stopped to take some photos of the fences with the gorgeous Sawtooths in the background. This was in the first week of June, so we still had the stunning snowcapped mountains.

Savannah and Tyler wanted to start their day with a hike that I had found which leads to some of the most gorgeous views of the Sawtooth Mountain Range. We started off with hiking Fishhook Creek Trail for their private vows, and then we went up the ridge in search of mountain views to host their first dance.

After our hiking adventure, I led them to a spot for their picnic where they could enjoy the views while they ate! They brought a picnic blanket that matched the mountains perfectly, and had some delicious homemade huckleberry pie for dessert, perfect for an Idaho elopement!

After we had all refueled, we headed over to Stanley Lake for some bridals! This lake is in my opinion the prettiest lake in Stanley. It has gorgeous views of McGown Peak, which makes for a stunning backdrop for adventure bridals!
