together, let's go back to the natural heart of things.

let's freakin' elope.

Hi, there, I'm Kayla, and I'm so thrilled you're here. I am an animal-loving, trail-seeking, empathetic & passionate adventure elopement photographer. 









this photography company is inspired by my husky, babel. she is a reminder of the good stuff: nature, connection, and adventure.

Hello! I'm Kayla :) 

a partner in telling your authentic story .
 
breaking from wedding tradition.

 going back to nature.


i love serving others by being present with them.

authenticity. I live for real moments with real people... with fresh air to guide us. Amid all the chaos of life lies our stories and what makes our hearts hopeful. Basically, I'm here to celebrate and preserve YOUR own joy for you & your loved ones.

 I am in the great outdoors, and through the art of photography, I have found my true calling in helping others kickoff their marriage with nature and intimacy as their companions. 








I am most at home when:

your new england adventure elopement  pal.

1. My definition of "elopement"

2. the value in partnering with me

3. why i do what i do (and love it).

My perfect, perfect day: hiking in the White Mountains with Babel, my fam and our wolf pack, then curling on the couch by 7pm and watching movies and eating Ben & Jerry's Phish Food.

The more I live, the more I crave the little, intimate, moments. They are fleeting. They are everything to me. 

Oh, and the name "Babel?" (bay-bell). Our husky was nameless for a week when, as we were listening to our favorite band "Mumford and Sons," their album "Babel" filled the room. This word has a few meanings, one being "chaos and confusion." Although she is the most zen creature in the world, she is a constant reminder to just surrender to the chaos of life, stop trying to make everything perfect, and just LIVE. I hope I can provide a space where you can live and surrender to the chaotic beauty that is life.

When I don't have a camera with me (which has been unusual since I was in middle school), I am singing, playing guitar, learning more about how to make this world a more equitable, peaceful land, and embracing the Netflix binge life. I am a huge proponent of self care, and I can thank my counseling background and Yogi mamma for that life knowledge. 

i'm an old woman in a late-twenties body, essentially.

Hi! kayla, here. New England elopement photographer. a bit about me.

first: what are elopements?

Simply put, I view elopements as experiences for people who want to get married but do NOT vibe with weddings as we know it: the huge guest list, massive reception hall, minute-to-minute timeline, and events that really don't center around the couple's story, their values, and what makes them come alive. 

MANY do not know there is a WHOLE world of adventure elopement photography, where couples can soak in their favorite experiences together, with their most cherished loved ones or in private, explore, take in experiences, and leave anything else unwanted behind. In other words, elopements are freedom from anything unwanted, and a full embrace of everything you DO want.

my style of elopements- i feel called to serve.

It was an August in Boston. This wedding ceremony was in the Boston Public Gardens on a STUNNING day - with family, and the couple's best of friends. And NO drama, timelines, and palpable stress. The reception was on the rooftop of their apartment, overlooking the stars and the skyline. Dinner was buffet style. Bon Iver sang over the speakers. And my heart told me, "Kayla- the best gift you can give people is to serve them in intimate moments like this. It's what you're meant to do." 



i'm your partner through it all.


My soul craves sharing outdoor experiences and real stories with people who value the same. If you've read through this far and feel like YOUR heart is telling you to break from convention and do what YOU want , then I say you deserve that.

I have built up resources galore that I literally share step-by-step with clients, and I pour my heart into every aspect of your elopement. My passion is being your partner in this.

so here i am.

how i arrived here.

my approach is:

what YOU want. and none of what you don't.
eloping is an authentic celebration of your unique love.

Eloping means:

i can't wait to be your pal through each part of the journey.

It is more than pictures. it is a mini retreat with your spouse, a place to let go of the busy schedules and pay attention to our partner and capture those moments. Money can't buy that.

-suzie & Alex (and THEIR Husky, Ruby!)

Kayla captured pictures of my family with such a wonderful eye. She was professional, funny, sweet, and she made us all feel so comfortable. She’s a wonderful photographer and a wonderful soul.
