There’s nothing ordinary about your wedding

If you’ve landed here then odds are a typical large wedding isn’t really up your alley.

Maybe you’re looking for a wedding day centered around your love and your love for the outdoors.

Or maybe you’re looking for a stress and drama free wedding day.

And maybe being the center of attention isn’t your cup of tea.  

THAT'S US!

LET'S TALK ABOUT YOUR PERFECT DAY

Whatever your reasoning may be...

YOU ARE WELCOME HERE

IT'S BECOME MY WHOLE MISSION

to make sure the two of YOU feel at home in whatever wild place you choose to get married, so that you will have those untouched moments to cherish forever. 

-Maybe you've had your photos taken before and felt uncomfortable, a little TOO posed or unnatural.

-Maybe it will be your first time in front of the camera and you have some mixed feelings about it. 

-Maybe the words "I'm no good at photos" have come out of your mouth.

 NEVER

Taking photos  should

TRUST ME I'VE BEEN THERE...

BE A STRESS POINT ON YOUR ELOPEMENT DAY. 

Having your photos taken shouldn’t be about you knowing what to do. It’s about knowing how to love your partner in your unique way.
 My photos will reflect that. 

Hey,

I'm Kayla. 

As someone who grew up in the Sequoia National Park (yes, the National Park) and currently resides in Mammoth Lakes CA, I have had over 20 years of outdoor & backcountry experience.

10 of which I have spent capturing people’s love stories in some of the most insane locations.

Having grown up in a town of 350 people and no cell service, it definitely shaped me to appreciate the uninterrupted moments in life.
 
I guess you could say that developed my knack for the untraditional.

Which brings me to you. Odds are if you’re still reading this, you might have a knack for the untraditional too.

But you’re just unsure of where to start when it comes to portraying that in your wedding day. 

Elopement day!
Soak in every little detail of your adventure filled wedding day. And cherish the memories with photos and albums. 

I’ll send you questionnaires and we spend time planning out your perfect day, making sure to include everything that you want!

We have a no pressure chat, getting to know each other and starting to put your dream day together. 

1. 

Inquire with me

2. 

Start the planning

3. 

Have The best day ever

I want to start planning! 

Kaley & Chad

"Kayla made all of our elopement dreams come true"

“We're not used to getting our picture taken, and wanted someone who would make us comfortable and capture our day in a mostly candid fashion. Kayla did just that. Not only did she shoot incredible photos, but she was a real source of support and a calming presence on the big day.”

Kendall & Brian

Megan & Greg

"Kayla put us right at ease and created an environment that we felt fully ourselves in"

But I’m here to reaffirm you: that’s not what it means.

Your elopement is simply your wedding day but without the social norms or traditions that don’t fit your relationship.

Think of it as smashing the social norms.

Elopements DO include people. Whether it’s 1 or 15 of your closest friends and family, your elopement is how YOU define it.

Your wedding day shouldn't be about catering to people you may not talk to 10 years down the road.

An elopement should be the most you centered wedding experience you could imagine. 


maybe the word ELOPEMENT 
scares you a little...

We all know how an elopement has been typically defined:

to run away secretly with the intention of getting married usually without parental consent

e·lope
/əˈlōp/

So that you can enjoy the untouched memories of your wedding day.

From your dream location to your backup location, I’ll make sure that you have the perfect view when you tie the knot with your partner.

But wait...
I have some questions..

Let's see if any of these answer them

-Do I have to have a location chosen before I contact you?

-Do I have to have a location chosen before I contact you?

Nope! That is what I am here for. You can have absolutely 0 idea where you want to say your vows and through a series of questions and getting to know you guys, I’ll help you choose your perfect spot. 

-How do I choose a location to get married?

-How do I choose a location to get married?

Through chatting on the phone, and answering some questionnaires, I’ll be able to location scout and give you options based on what you guys are dreaming up. 

-How do I know if I need a permit for where I’m getting married?

-How do I know if I need a permit for where I’m getting married?

The permitting process can be very different from place to place. But always always, do you research and make sure you have the right permits if they’re needed. Here in the Eastern Sierra, the permitting process is quite easy in most areas, but not to worry, I’ll help you through the whole thing. From contact emails to email templates, I’ll make sure you’re set for the elopement permitting process! 


-Are there ways I can still keep my family & friends involved?

-Are there ways I can still keep my family & friends involved?

Absolutely! Whether it be a two day elopement (one day with the friends/family and one day without) or reading letters from your family and friends on your wedding day, I’ll work with you guys to find the best way to keep them involved. 

-Do you charge for travel?

-Do you charge for travel?

 No :) All of my packages have travel costs rolled in!
