AN ELOPEMENT IS A BLANK CHECK FOR ALL YOUR WILDEST DREAMS

Close your eyes. Imagine soaking in the sunrise on your wedding day after hiking up a misty mountain together before dawn, or spending the day moseying through a fragrant forest to a secret waterfall with just your person (and maybe your dog). Maybe you’ve got another dream adventure brewing, even better! Your elopement is whatever the heck you want it to be.

From scouting the most gorgeous locations nature has to offer, to designing a blast of a timeline with you, to recommending rad vendors off the beaten path, to documenting every wild and wonderful second along the way – I’m here to help make this a memorable experience that resonates with who you two are.

CELEBRATE YOUR LOVE STORY AND NOBODY ELSE’S

IT’S ACTUALLY SUPER SIMPLE & LAID BACK, SO YOU WON'T HAVE TO STRESS. THAT'S THE POINT, RIGHT?


OK, PHOTO MAN...WHAT'S THE PROCESS? HOW DOES THIS WORK?

WHAT DO MY PACKAGES INCLUDE?

OK, first move’s on you: you’ll say hey by filling out my inquiry form with as many juicy details as you can. Then we'll hang out on a phone call, where we’ll laugh too much while we find out whether we’re a good fit for each other (duh, of course we are).

It matters that we click, cause I'll probably be the only other person along for the ride on your elopement day. Don't worry, I'm kinda cool, sometimes funny and always real. Always.

MEET AND GREET

Once we’ve settled on the best package for you, we can start bringing all the epic details of your elopement to life! You’ll receive my personalized couples’ questionnaire to get you dreaming, a custom location list, and rad vendor recommendations that I think match your vision.

All the magic comes together here and you can count on me to be there for you every. single. step. of. the. way. Seriously. Whether it's the announcement to your family, finding a last-minute vendor or the best place to dance under the stars, I GOTCHU.

DESIGN YOUR ADVENTURE

02//

We all show up, have the time of our lives, become best friends and live life happily ever after. Yep, just like that. On your elopement day, I’m there to make sure you two have a phenomenal experience and get to tell your story exactly the way you want to.

Now, raise your pinky and this is where I promise you: Not only will I be your biggest fan, but I will put all of my heart into your day. Promise.

You mean besides the fact that this is my dream job and I'm super stoked to help make the day you marry your great love even more awesome? Well, hand-crafting and catching beautiful experiences in the great outdoors is personal for me.

After spending my younger years out of touch with what made me happy, photography and exploring wild nature became my passport to truly finding myself. Add my love for people of all walks of life to the mix, shake it up with some good vibes, and you get Emett (that’s me!). Being invited to be your love storyteller is my deepest honor and privilege. I've found my purpose, and it's invigorating to be part of yours.

Fast forward a few months, I shot my first wedding amped to just get the experience, and during the vow exchange I got pretty emotional. Despite all of life's trials, tribulations and successes - this couple was vowing to spend the rest of their lives together. When I delivered the gallery, I had never been more proud of myself, and I immediately knew that all of life's turning points shared something in common. They started with incredible relationships and unconditional love.

To be invited into your life, to tell the story of your love, is truly one of the deepest honors and privileges I have. I've found my purpose, and it's invigorating to be a part of yours.

50 beautiful states to choose from, no biggie! Whether it’s close to home or a destination wedding adventure, I’ll meet you anywhere your heart desires.

Rugged mountains, sandy beaches, stunning deserts...take your pick from all the gorgeous landscapes California, Utah, Idaho and Nevada have to offer.

Say your I do’s in Mt. Rainier National Park, the North Cascades or on the Oregon coast, to name-drop a few epic spots in this little corner of paradise.

Spin the globe...will your love take you to Iceland, Japan, Bali, or the Scottish isles? This planet has too many gorgeous spots to discover together!

Melissa & James

"Working with Emett is more then working with a photographer, it’s like working with your friend who is there to help you every step of the way. He really goes above and beyond to make everything perfect and seamless. Every time we talked to Emett about our plans, we were left excited, encouraged and productive. He has such a creative eye and makes every moment he captures beautiful. When we got our engagment and wedding photos back, my face literally hurt from smiling and going through them over and over."

"Working with Emett is literally a dream... I could not ever in a million years ask for a better wedding photographer."

Reyna & Froy

"I would 1000% recommend Emett. He is not only a phenomenal photographer, but a genuinely kind person. From the first point of contact we knew he was the right fit for us by how personable he was. He is so down-to-earth, professional, helpful and makes the whole experience fun and exciting. He's up for any adventure and the sky is the limit when it comes to his skills.  Our wedding day was filled with so much joy and laughter. I had only dreamed that our photos would reflect these moments. He captured the day beautifully and we will cherish our wonderful photos for a lifetime. If you're looking for an amazing photographer, he is your guy."

"The attentiveness he pays to every detail is impressive and he puts his whole heart and effort into his art." 

Lindsay & Will

"From the very start of our communications, to the event itself, and everything that followed, Emett has been so incredibly wonderful to work with! He made planning the day so incredibly easy... When the day finally came for our elopement, We were laughing and having the best time! He made us feel so relaxed and when it was time for us to say our vows, we basically forgot he was there, but he captured our emotions and everything so perfectly!"

"Emett was incredibly fun to work with and made the day go so smoothly!"
