Sample Timeline

  • 11:45 am—Getting ready, (Hair, Makeup) at the Airbnb in a beautiful mountain location

  • 1:00 pm—The couple has lunch cooked up by an award winning private chef at the airbnb, including some of their favorite horderves,  hand picked by the couple.

  • 2:00 pm—Bride puts on her dress and the couple have a first look at an amazing spot close to the airbnb.  Then they head to a lodge close to their first adventure location and sign the marriage certificate (The Jeep Driver and I sign as witnesses)

  • 4:00 pm—then, they do it—they jump into a Jeep and the driver brings them to explore the many locations hand picked by the couple as well as some the driver recommends.  Spots with epic views, luscious vegetation and beautiful hikes. 

  • 6:00 pm—The couple lands on their favorite location with the most amazing view and decides that's where they would like to say their vows. Then proceed to explore the area

  • 8:30 pm—we drive back to the Lodge where the couple have a intimate private dinner set up with a beautiful view. After dinner they head back to the Airbnb

  • 10:30 pm—in the magnificent starry mountain night the couple build their bonfire next to the airbnb and have their first dance with music played by their best friend.

Hey!  It's me!

Hey guys!  I'm Angie!  My passion in life it to travel and explore as many epic places as possible!   To take this step full time, my husband and I sold our house and most of our possessions and bought an RV!  9 years later, we are still touring the country and the world! During this time I helped book and manage my husbands music tour which landed us in every state in the country and Internationally in Europe, Costa Rica and Canada.  Because of our travels we have been able to see so many amazing places, and I have developed a passion for photographing them!  In the last few years we decided to plant some roots in some of our favorite cities which gave me space to explore more areas of photography including weddings, families, corporate, special event and pretty much every type of photography you can think of.  I found that I had a deep passion for weddings and couples and then further realized that I could mix my love of hiking and sightseeing together with adventure elopements! I knew I had found my calling!  I can't wait to get to know you and help you create the most amazing adventure wedding you can think of!
