"What a gift it was to have Sammie and Micah as our adventure guides/photographers. They truly went above and beyond any expectation for photographers, as they were actively involved and reassuring with planning and execution. They helped alleviate any unnecessary stress leading up and throughout the day. I don’t say this often but run, don’t walk, to have the opportunity to collaborate with The Chaffins."

"They truly went above and beyond"

- Alexis + Sean

For the travel-obsessed

First, let's define what exactly an adventure elopement is.
(Because modern elopements are so much more than they used to be!)

Getting married in an intentional way that is true to who you are as a couple, keeping all the traditions you love and letting go of the ones you don’t. Prioritizing a relationally-focused, meaningful experience over details, and including a limited amount of loved ones to keep the day intimate and special.
(Often includes unique, personalized activities to make the wedding an unforgettable adventure!)

Sound pretty incredible? We think so too.


Elopements can be whatever you want them to be - they can have 20 guests or 0 guests, be an 8 hour day or a 4-day experience. They can be in your hometown, in a national park, in a foreign country, on the coast, in a desert, in multiple countries - wherever your heart desires!

  • Your two new best friends/your personal cheerleaders on your wedding day (who will also help pin that boutonniere, give you snacks, pull out hand warmers when you're cold - you get the picture. We’re here for YOU!)

  • Your elopement experts who will help you through the process of planning your elopement with tons of personalized recommendations and advice!

  • Your experience creators who prioritize YOU and your connection above all else - we create space for you to slow down, connect, and be truly present on your wedding day (so it doesn’t all fly by in a blur!). Our couples have remarked that their session times with us felt more like a double-date than a photoshoot!

When you book a Chaffins Elopement, you get WAY more than just photographers. You also get:

We’re here to help you identify EXACTLY what would make your dream day, keep all the traditions you love and let go of all the ones you don’t, and say YES to the adventure wedding experience of your dreams!

Meaningful Experiences in Adventurous Destinations

Sammie and Micah made our dreams all come true and we could have not had a more perfect day if it wasn’t for them. 

The prompts they had us doing made it feel comfortable and like we were living in the moment, not posing for a photo. After receiving our photos, we were in shock. It exceeded everything we ever dreamed. 

Sammie and Micah, you were amazing and immediately felt like best friends. Thank you for making our wedding day so so special!”

They went above and beyond and we are forever grateful. Not only with how the photos came out (which were gorgeous!), but making the whole experience memorable (and honestly, fun! and this is coming from two people who don't take pictures and are very unphotogenic). Sammie and Micah are two of the most genuine people you will ever meet, who also are incredibly talented.”
