We’re here to help you do your wedding day differently. You’re wedding day doesn’t have to be big to be important. You don’t have to throw a huge party for it to be worthy of a celebration. You don’t have to spend a ton of money on traditions you don’t value for your commitment to each other to be valid. What you have built is beautiful and we are so glad that you’re here.

We can’t wait to run wild with you!

Intention over Tradition - Easy & Genuine

Drop the expectations

 Intention over tradition

& keep it simple

What if your wedding day could feel like yours and not what everyone tells you it should be? Having a wedding that aligns with your relationship is an incredible way to honor the love that you have built. You don’t have to have a massive wedding for your marriage to mean something. You don’t have to invite a ton of people for your love to be worthy of celebrating.

We’re in the business of making memories by helping you craft an experience for your wedding day that is all yours. Whether that’s hiking up a mountain with you at 5 in the morning as the sun washes over the peaks for your first look, or saying your vows on a rocky beach while the light dips below the horizon line.

DROP THE STRESS

 Easy & Genuine

& keep it easy

What if you could abandon all of the anxiety and stress and truly soak in the day? Your day shouldn’t feel rushed. You should have time to kiss and snuggle and share every sweet thought that pops into your head. You should have time to drink champagne and eat your favorite foods or catch a sunrise while you drink coffee. All those small moments that happen during your day, the ones that are quiet and precious, that’s what we’re after; sweet love in beautiful places.

We don’t want you to just have pretty pictures, we want you to feel all that magic on your wedding day and relive it over and over again. We’re here to capture all of the big feelings in the small moments, those sweet in-betweens that you never want to end. Your love story is important, it is unique and it deserves to be told.

You can craft a day that is a true celebration of your relationship. None of the frills, none of the stress, none of the b.s., just all of that sweet lovey goodness. Instead of rushing around, going through the motions, and spending all of your energy pleasing others, you can spend that focusing on the person you love most.

You deserve a wedding day that is truly yours and centered on celebrating the love that you’ve built and images that let you relive it a million times over.

Here's how we can help…

There’s a lot of planning that goes into crafting a day that is so intentional. We’re here to help! It’s more than just beautiful pictures, we want an amazing experience for you.

Suggesting locations is another service that comes with all of our packages. We’ve had a lot of access to beautiful locations and have them listed out and ready to share with you, pictures and information (researched or experienced) that can help you choose the perfect places to explore. We’ve spent a lot of time in the places that we love from the rain forests in Washington to deserts in the southwest. The west is our favorite part of the country and we’re always on the hunt for a new adventure. We find our spots mostly by getting out and exploring them, but there are a ton of online resources and communities that help us plan for places that we’ve never been before.


Location Suggestions

Most locations require permits and communication with park services. We can handle your photography permits and point you in the right direction for any additional permits you may need. We also research to let you know the details about each permit and location guidelines, so you're always well-informed and in the loop.


Permits

After you’re booked we’re all yours. Call us, beep us, if ya wanna reach us. We want to make sure that you feel taken care of and that all of your questions are answered. 
This also includes access to all of our guides and questionnaires (they are jam-packed with helpful resources).

Where we’ll be...


We're Sam & Kyle

Elopement photographers and all around good time chasers

We love getting out of our comfort zone. We’re focused on crafting experiences that reflect your relationship and celebrate the love that you’ve built. Based out of Texas and the Pacific Northwest, we travel full-time in our RV exploring our favorite spaces. We believe in making memories and images that capture all of the big feelings, and the in-between moments that you want to relive over and over again. We are so glad that you’re here and can’t wait to run wild with you.

MORE ABOUT US

Hi there!

1 - 3

Are we a good fit?

Finding a photographer that you like and trust is crazy important. If there isn’t trust, if you don’t feel comfortable putting your walls down and letting us get a glimpse, then your images won’t be an honest reflection of who you are. We like to keep things laid back and want your time with us is like meeting up with two old pals. We’re more than photographers. We’re the ones bringing extra snacks in case you get hungry, sending you guides to keep you informed, helping you pick locations and walking you through what you may need and your next steps. We’re the ones rooting for you. Who we are isn’t for everyone, but we know the couples we vibe with and we can’t wait to meet you.

A Little More About Us

We have spent the last 10 years attached at the hip and loving every second of it. There are so many layers to relationships and we love peeling ours back in order to grow stronger together. 
We bought and renovated our first “home”, an RV in 2018 and hit the road. Traveling through the west, we captured the landscapes that we love and decided to weave together our favorite places with amazing couples. We love being outside and when we’re not working, we are backpacking through mountains, catching desert canyon sunrises, and searching for secret swimming spots. We love curling up by a campfire for some good conversations and cozy drinks while the wood crackles. We are always on a quest for excellent coffee and perfect morning views. We are each other's favorite people and have spent a lot of time learning to love each other just so, and we know that you have too. You know exactly which hand you and your partner hold. You know exactly how to rest your head on THAT spot on their shoulder, or push their hair back from their face. Those little things are the layers that make our relationship our own, and that is what we want to capture in yours.
