LGBTQ+ Adventure Elopement Video of Hillary + Ana near Asheville NC
Elopements are where my heart comes alive. They are where I feel the most creative and the most connected to my couples. We are able to have so much time together to celebrate life and love and spending a lifetime with an incredible partner. There is space for all the things a couple wants to feel or needs to experience during that day, which in turn allows me to capture moments and connections I wouldn't otherwise be able to.
We did a styled shoot with Melissa and Josh a while back, and they loved it so much they decided to actually elope in a similar way. Just the two of them, myself, Shannon and Andrew from Fox & Owl Studio, sharing laughs, eating cake, popping champagne, and romping around in the golden woods we love so dearly.
I'll be manifesting my goal for many more elopements like these in 2018
Kat & Rich,
Thanks for letting me embrace my creativity in the telling of your story. Thank you for talking about not only the joys of a marriage in your vows, but also the reality of the struggles and hardships you will face. Thank you for being silly & honest with yourselves and with us. Rich - thank you for trusting me to put on your boutonniere and saying it looked good with the slight tilt. Kat - thank you for being willing to take off your jacket in the most freezing wind and jump around in it for a while.
Thank you for choosing me to create this for you. So much love to you both <3

With each unique couple,
each shaky & honest vow,
I continue to learn more about love through these partnerships -
these people that allow me into their life for just a day or even as short as an afternoon.
Because on this day they are their most raw,
their most vulnerable,
and their most alive.
The choices they made have brought them here and I am a choice as well,
And with each quirky first dance,
each intimately chosen location,
each grateful hug,
so so many hugs,
