More than most vendors, your photographer is there for nearly each moment of your elopement. Finding the right match and knowing you're in good hands, especially for hiking/adventure elopements, is so important.
You will read that I become part of the family in a very real way...it's the honor of my life!
I have crafted a client experience that is step-by-step, ORGANIZED, and authentic to YOUR personal elopement vision. The other BS is left out (traditions you don't care about, jam-packed timelines, hidden costs, etc.)
Like many people who elope, we were on a crunch for time. Our officiant gave us Kayla’s information and within a day Kayla answered. She was so genuinely excited for us and filled our heads with so many great ideas and details that we didn’t even think of (like having a picnic and bringing snacks between locations). Organizing the details so it all goes smoothly is not our cup of tea. She helped plan our entire day. She offered her recommendations for flowers, hair/makeup, bakeries (she was even going to pick up our cupcakes to take that burden away from us- an outstanding gesture). She reached out to the people at Echo Lake for us as well and gave us all the contact information, broke down the fees, and even followed up with them. Kayla was there to answer questions 24/7, extremely professional, but also very fun and sweet to work with (and we have the photos to prove it)!
Kayla worked alone on our elopement day and she captured every beautiful moment from all different angles. We’re obsessing over her outstanding artistic ability while still giving us those wedding vibes. In our final album she gave us multiple prints in black and white, as well as a handcrafted slide show. We received a sneak peak album in 24 hours, which was amazing to share while it was all so fresh! We haven’t asked her to adjust any photos (because why would we need to) but I’m sure she’d be willing to.
We could go on forever about the amazing photographer and person she is.
When you look back at the MANY photos she took, you’ll be glad you hired her because she captured all those moments that make us smile & will certainly reminisce in the years to come.
Kayla is an absolute dream. Her energy and talent is immeasurable. The entire process from booking to receiving your gallery (and epic SLIDESHOW!) is so fun and easy. Not only did she perfectly capture our wedding celebration, she was able to capture the feeling of absolute joy and happiness we all felt that day. She is pure magic. Kayla brings a warmth and positivity to your day that is so rare to find. The end result is even more stunning if you can believe it. She gave us SO MANY photos and we love every single one!!! They couldn't be better. She is so talented. We will cherish these memories forever. 11/10 HIGHLY beyond recommend this lovely and amazing photographer!
We could not have made a better decision for our elopement than to have her there to capture the day! She is an absolute joy to work with - she is kind, thoughtful, patient, and creative. With both our engagement and elopement pictures, she helped us feel completely comfortable and even helped us enjoy the picture taking process! I will recommend Kayla at every opportunity I get & I cannot wait to continue to work with her for future milestones! Thank you for everything, Kayla!
No way. Authentic elopements are about you. If your vision is a beach, your backyard, a public library, downtown Boston, or camping for a weekend, it is ALL welcome here.
Amazing! We brainstorm together. You fill out a VERY helpful questionnaire that sorts out your potential vision, and I start my researching. I send you multiple ideas with specific notes and we take it from there:)
Another reason why I specialize in New England elopements are because I have extensive location familiarity with all my hiking I've done. We will find the perfect spot.
Heck yes. Couples can use their 1-hour engagement session credit for a:
1. one-year anniversary adventure session
2. at home session
3. fill in the blank :)
This credit is good for one-calendar year post-elopement date :)
YES. Couples shouldn't have to compromise quality for their dream elopement. I work with couples individually to find a payment plan/schedule that eases their minds. I firmly believe in this. I encourage couples to communicate individual needs. If we are the right fit, I will do whatever you need to ensure we partner together. ALL of my packages are ALL inclusive for this reason, as well: transparency.
Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to. Morning coffee, a few minutes late to work, a brisk walk down the street window shopping for the upcoming fall season. Wool sweaters, bare trees, cold nights.
So cold we can see our breath as we hike the open fields in the fog. Climbing and chasing waterfalls while the sun sets behind the mountain and the snow falls in the river. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure.
Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour another cup. Black denim and leather boots, the deepest crimson flannel. Rose gold and velvet. Rich and lush. Red wine and dark twilight nights.
Cozy sweaters, vintage demin, and Pabst while telling one of a kind love stories. The trials and tribulations of love, joy, and happiness. Lastly, champagne brunch and avocado toast while surrounded by the finest exposed brick, dreamcatchers, and maps to our souls.
The next day, you get a preview of images to cheer for with your loved ones. A few weeks later, you get your gallery emailed to you and your album shipped to your door.
We get you booked, we plan your dream day together through timelines/guides/check-ins, and you enter your day being fully present.
We "meet" over zoom! Your photographer should vibe with you and this step is SO important. I answer any and all questions and help with some brainstorming :)
