book your adventure elopement

With me...

you can have your cake & eat it too

Picture you and your love at the cute little A frame cabin your rented, starting your day in bed, snuggled up together drinking coffee and eating some delicious pastries. As the morning wears on, you both start getting ready for your ceremony. You exchange gifts, share kisses and then say your vows on the front porch before heading out to your hammocks hanging in the woods to share a celebratory drink and some food. As the afternoon winds down, you jump into your car and make the trek up the top of the mountain for some amazing sunset portraits. You hike around a beautiful alpine lake as the golden light warms you both. Then as the last rays dip below the horizon, you grab your headlamps and work your way back to the trailhead. But before your day is done, you take some incredible star portraits.
This is just one of many different ideas of what you can do on your elopement day. As your planner and guide, I will work with you to handcraft your dream day! Don’t hike? Not a problem! We can easily create any type of adventure your heart desires.

I do not offer raw photos since it's not an accurate representation of my work. My art is based on not only how I take the photo, but also how I edit it afterwards!

great question!

When I build your custom location list, I always have a plan B, and plan C and maybe even a plan D. I definitely photograph in all types of weather though, so if it’s not dangerous, we will proceed as planned.

backups!

 I always suggest bringing extra warm clothes to layer with, good boots if you’ll be doing any hiking, snacks, water, and anything special that you want to include. I also always carry extra snacks and a first aid kit at minimum.

that's cool!

We can swap it out for a day after session or I'll issue you a print credit. I do encourage you to do one though, as it's a great way to get used to my shooting style to make sure you have the best portraits on your wedding day!

Michelle & Ray

We wanted to document our special day, as simple as it was, and the photos came out great. She made the effort to get to know us and captured who we are as a couple. She was fun to work with, even hopping a little creek in her Chacos to get the perfect shot. We highly recommend her!

Erica was

exactly

the right choice for our elopement!

Lindsey & Ian

Before our big day, she asked all the right questions and made me feel 100% secure that all our photo needs would be met, all over email! On our wedding day, she was everywhere! Getting the perfect shots and giving us feedback. She was easy to trust and we were so happy to try all her fun photo ideas! After our big day, she was so quick with first looks and the whole set of hundreds of photos came within weeks of our day! I have so many favorite images from our day thanks to Erica!

I can't tell you how

thankful I am

we decided on Erica for our

in Bend.

elopement

Emily & Jack

We had so much FUN with Erica throughout the whole process - she brought such a relaxed, can-do energy to all our interactions and never once made us feel silly for any of our questions or requests. If you're planning a PNW wedding (especially an elopement or intimate wedding), I'd recommend Erica in a heartbeat! She is an artist and a true professional, and we feel so lucky to have found her.

we absolutely

loved

working with erica for our

shoots!

wedding and engagement

Michelle & Tim

I knew Erica was the perfect photographer for us from the moment I read her bio! She was so much fun to work with and made my husband and I feel so comfortable! I’m so grateful to have met Erica and I highly recommend her! Thank you Erica for giving us more than we ever expected and for the awesome experience of hiking around after our ceremony to get some incredible photos!

not only is erica

amazingly talented

she has such a great personality

that makes you

feel at ease.

Monica & Kavi

When COVID hit, we didn’t know what our plan was but Erica let us know she would be with us no matter what. About a month before our date ended up switching to a small family wedding in Southern Oregon. Erica was soooo willing to change her plans and joined us COVID stay (socially distant, mask and all) and completely ROCKED it with our wedding photos.

We did our engagement photos with her, which ended up being a great experience since my husband and I are both awkward in front of the camera…all the pictures turned out perfect!

Ryann & Mark

We loved her positive and relaxed attitude, which matched our own. She helped us plan for all of the moments we wanted to capture and provided helpful tips for posing, while also giving us room to be ourselves. She captured so many lovely candid moments throughout the day that are so fun to relive and get to see everything that was happening. With all of the uncertainties and plans changing around covid, Erica was great at communicating and willing to work with us as plans developed. 

erica was so

wonderful

to work with and her photos

are absolutely

gorgeous!
