elopements

Personal affairs with just you, the love of your life, 

& a few of your favorite people.

Gone are the days that eloping meant running away to the courthouse to make it official. Elopements have become trendy, beautiful, and just downright amazing! Think about the intimacy of saying totally personal vows to the love of your life and making the day you commit your lives to each other exactly what you would want it to be. No stress, no pressure, and no extra fluff that you don't want or need to celebrate your special day.

If your wedding day involves just you as a couple or less than 10 of your closest family and friends,

then an elopement is perfect for you!

Kind Words from Eloping Couples

"Alexa was incredible to work with...So thoughtful, so accommodating, great recommendations. Had a plan and a vision and is super creative. It felt more like a friend was taking the photos - she did such a good job and the value was exceptional. We were thrilled before, during and after our experience -- highly recommend! Thank you again Alexa, for making our day so great."

Where are you located & do you travel?


I'm located in the heart of the Colorado Rockies near Silverthorne and I most often serve my neighboring mountain and resort towns including Vail, Aspen, Breckenridge, Steamboat, Keystone, and Granby. But I LOVE to travel and I'm available wherever your story takes you - all across the state, country, or even the globe!




Do you charge travel fees?


There are no travel fees within 60 miles of 80498 (aka home base). For locations beyond that within the state and in driving distance, I charge $50/hr. Out of state travel or locations that require longer stays, I ask my couples to cover air fare, accomodations, and a rental car but I do my best to keep these costs low for my clients. My package prices remain the same regardless of where your session takes place and I do offer discounts in some of my favorite locations like Arizona, National Parks, and more. Check my "Travel" tab to see where I'm heading to next and where you could score a discounted rate on your session!




How & in what format do we receive our photos?


All photos are delivered via "PixieSet", a personal password protected online gallery that looks like your own website! From your gallery, you can download the edited digital files in high resolution or standard resolution JPG format. High resolution images are best for printing and standard are best for online use like social media. If you need the images in another format (for example, for a print) just let me know and I'll be happy to work with you!




What type and style of photos to you deliver?


Take a look arouond my website and my social media pages and you'll get a feel for my style of photography! I focus on raw, bold, and natural light documentary and illustrative images, meaning you'll get a combination of candid, posed, and artistic photos in your gallery. Prior to your session or wedding, we'll work together to create your "shot list", any images or inspiration that you would absolutely LOVE to have captured in a photo! While I will take A LOT of photos in different poses and settings during your session, it's ultimately at my creative and professional discretion which images you receive. I want you to have to the best of the best! You'll receive only amazing, high quality images, all in color and some additionally in black and white.




When will we receive our photos?


Every proposal, engagement, elopement, and wedding will receive a sneak peek of up to 15 images no more than 48 hours after! Standard sessions (bridal, boudoir, couple, proposal) should expect to see photos within 2-3 weeks, elopements within 3-4 weeks, and weddings in no more than 6 weeks. The editing process is the most time consuming and challenging part of photography! I do try to get you photos as quickly as possible, but please be patient with the process as I work to give you amazing images!




Do you edit every image? How much editing do you do?


Processing and editing your images is the most time consuming part of my job but also where I'm able to provide you with an AMAZING final product! While I will take A LOT of photos during your session, I don't edit and deliver every image. In processing, I'm looking for the best light, movement, settings, and quality that can be edited to meet the artistic style you see in my portfolio. Images that don't meet my professional standards are culled, meaning deleted, so I'm only editing and delivering the best of the best. From those images, I will remove distractions and minor blemishes, correct for warmth, light and other settings, and give your images my unique style in the process. I take a lot of time to ensure every image is amazing and fits the style and quality you expect. However, I do not offer extensive Photoshop or body alternations of photos. I keep things as natural and authentic as possible!




How do I book and reserve my date?


I'm so excited to work with you! The best way to reach me is to fill out a contact form, which I'll respond to within the day. We'll schedule a time to chat over virtual coffee (or in person if we're close enough!) to discuss my availability, your vision and needs, how I can help you, and to ensure that we're a perfect fit! If we're a match (YAY!), I'll input you into my client system, you'll sign a contract on the terms of my services, and you'll pay a 40%-50% retainer (depending on your session type) to reserve your date! Then we'll be officially official and the fun starts!




I don't know how to pose. Do you help with that?


Of course! That's part of the job! You don't need to come with any knowledge or ideas ahead of time (although you're welcome to share your inspo and ideas if you have it) on how to pose or the type of images you want. Just come with your beautiful selves ready to have a blast! My "posing" style is rather anti-posing. I don't like stiff, awkward, and unnatural (and I'm sure you don't either!) Instead, I'll give you actions, movement, ask you questions about yourself, and we'll laugh a whole lot. And I'll be snapping photos the whole time to capture those real, authentic moments.




Can you help me with location, ideas, inspiration, and planning?


Of course! That's a complementary service I offer to every client in every session! I have an event planner background and love logistics and details. Plus I'm a native mountain girl with more than 5 years experience in the industry, so I have great connections and resources to help you. Local pro insight right at your fingertips! Whether that means helping you plan the perfect experience for your proposal, picking an amazing location for your engagement, sharing style inspiration for your bridal or boudoir sesson, giving you resources to make wedding planning easy, or anything in between, just let me know how I can help! A great place to start is looking at my past clients on my website or social media and browsing my Pinterest where I store my favorite ideas.
