Inspired by couples love for each other, adventure, and the beautiful outdoors

Eloping is for the brave for the individuals who value experiences over things. When you make something uniquely your own I promise you it is the most incredible feeling, I've witnessed that. That moment where a couple of people who are just crazy in love want to make a whole day celebrating the love and commitment they have for each other in the most authentic way possible. I'm here to tell you to forego those traditions that serve no meaning to you, stop worrying about pleasing everyone, make your wedding day about you and maybe a few people who hold a special place in your heart. You deserve to have your wedding day be exactly what you want it to be.

My parents eloped...

in Ocala National Forest and till this day the only thing they regret is the fact that this picture taken on a Polaroid is the only photo they have from their wedding day. My mom said it was an experience they will never forget. Simply put, they did it because it wasn't the status quo and they wanted to get married in nature's church. The day was all about the love they shared for each other and nature. So if you want to spend your wedding day running through Sequoia National forest in California, hiking Longs Peak in Colorado, playing on the beach by the Sea of Cortez in Baja California, or roaming the Moab desert in Utah then lets chat and make it happen! I love working with couples who thrive when outside and are down for anything!

Zoe was an absolute pleasure to work with. When we got engaged I immediately knew I would rather purchase a home with the money rather than have a large wedding. She came to our house for an “in home” session and was immediately so comfortable to be around and so great at directing us. These are pictures we will cherish forever. She really captured us having fun and made us feel so natural the entire time. Zoe has such a big heart and I would recommend her to both friends and family.

Zoë was excellent to work with. I was hesitant taking photos after 5 years without really being in front of a camera because I was worried it wouldn’t look natural, we would look posed and I was completely wrong. She’s very authentic in not only her personality but the photographs too, she captured the essence of our marriage and the relationship that I have with my husband. I cannot speak highly enough of how excellent of a photographer she is and how I will forever cherish the photos she took.

Our photos with her exceeded my expectations and are far better than ever our wedding photos that we took, I am overwhelmed with emotion every time I see a glimpse of the moments she captured. You cannot go wrong if you choose her to capture your special moments.

Zoë shot our engagement photos in Yosemite. She not only has a creative eye and talent for photography but is professional, easy to work with, and makes you and your significant other feel comfortable in front of the camera! She even cared enough to come to our house and see our dog. I’d recommend her 100 times over!
