Between the two of us, we’ve been to 22 countries (and counting!). On our free time, we're often browsing flights, AirBnb’s, and train schedules for other countries, and dreaming up new trips to take.

So needless to say, when you book with us, you’re not only getting two photographers - you’re getting two new friends who will lend our expertise and help you with the questions you didn’t even know you had!

One of the things I love most about Micah:
His goofiness, his heart of service, and his steady kindness and love - he’s my biggest supporter and always points me toward Jesus.

Why I love being an elopement photographer:
Being able to serve/impact people on one of the most important days of their lives. I love helping our couples slow down and connect with each other, soak in the beauty of each moment, and have the best wedding experience possible!

Dream elopement to photograph:
Any multi-day elopement that takes place in three or more countries.
(One of my most formative travel experiences when I was 19 was solo-traveling through 9 countries in Europe and experiencing many cultures in a single trip. So a wedding where our couple does just that - experiencing the beauty of cultural and scenic variety by traveling to multiple countries!). 
I think it’s the most romantic thing to celebrate a love so boundless, a single country can’t contain it.

One of the things I love most about Sammie:
Her heart of incredible kindness. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone as loving as she is.

Why I love being an elopement photographer:
Getting to help people slow down, truly be present, and soak in their day, then providing them with beautiful documentation of their wedding experience that they’ll cherish for decades to come. That’s awesome.

Dream elopement to photograph:
Any multi-country elopement involving a big city + incredible nature, i.e. Paris + Swiss Alps, or New York + Norway fjords. Something like that!

Sammie and Micah are extremely talented photographers (their work speaks for itself!) but they also go out of their way to make the process comfortable and so fun! They are professional beyond words, and go above and beyond. Sammie and Micah captured all of our special moments in gorgeous photos. We cannot recommend a more talented, fun, and hard-working duo to capture such important memories. They put so many special touches into the work they do, which really adds to the whole experience. We can truly say that through working with them we made two new friends, and have already recommended them to other friends who are getting married. Working with them was THE BEST experience.”

And what better way to love on people than by being their support system/cheerleaders on the most important day of their lives?

We’re passionate about helping your wedding day be as stress-free and peaceful as possible (that was one of our main priorities when we eloped!), which is why we help our couples with so much of the planning process. Our heart is for you to enjoy the experience and have confidence and peace entering into your marriage!

"The day you get married should feel like the best date ever."

We became wedding photographers not because we love photography, but because we love people.

This is the moment you've been waiting for. You deserve to experience, savor, and remember the day you get married.

And it should feel like the best date ever.

We help couples slow down and be present on their wedding day - to truly soak in the beauty of each moment.

"Choosing an elopement style wedding allowed us to play and laugh and enjoy an entire day of being husband and wife. 

Sammie and Micah as a team of photographers are patient and extremely skilled in the way that they can gently encourage you to play and be joyful and forget everything else in the world, like it is just the two of you. Their skill with capturing beautiful and sweet moments that will last forever is truly unparalleled.”

we believe marriage is life's greatest adventure

Falling more and more in love with them every single day.

All the simple moments in life become infused with beauty and love and adventure.

Marriage is life’s greatest adventure - we believed this before, and the longer we’ve been married, the more certain of this we are.

There’s something special about being married to your best friend. 

Our experience on our wedding day made us so passionate to help other couples have intimate, unhurried, meaningful experiences on their wedding days.

Nothing makes us happier than seeing our couples fulfilled and ecstatic over their wedding day. Many couples don’t know that getting married another way is even an option! We love encouraging you to 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! 

This is why we do what we do.

When I (Sammie here!) dreamed of my wedding day growing up, I didn’t imagine centerpieces and color schemes. There were really only 2 things I dreamed of:

I really don’t know where I got these ideas, as I had NEVER heard of a wedding where someone did this. But I also didn’t yet know that there were “expectations” and “things you should or shouldn’t do” for your wedding. I just thought that being barefoot on an ocean cliff would be the most perfect way for ME to enter into the adventure of marriage.

And years later, after meeting the love of my life, we did just that.

Our wedding day was wild, windy, and adventurous, and we loved every bit of it. 

We got married on a cliff overlooking the ocean in 2019, in the same place where we got engaged and where our relationship began over a year prior after meeting at a bible study. Needless to say, this destination held precious memories for us and made our ceremony location incredibly meaningful as we pledged our love before God and our closest family/friends.  

And yes, I ran around on the cliffs barefoot!

The photos we treasure most from this day are the ones that hold memories of moments and authentically tell the story of our wedding day (in all of its barefoot, windy, messy-haired glory!). Our wedding day was untraditional, unhurried, meaningful, and adventurous. It was PERFECT for us.

We love elopements so much, we did it ourselves.

I wanted to get married on a cliff overlooking the ocean.
And I wanted to be barefoot.

“Have you ever met people that you just know are genuinely good hearted people with the best intentions and their presence puts you at complete ease? That’s Sammie and Micah. We’ve worked with other good photographers before but truly, working with Sammie and Micah is incomparable. From the communication before, during, and after the shoot to the direction and encouragement the day of, 10 out of 10. I recommend them to anyone and everyone. They are professional, kind, personable and simply lovely people to work with.”

with sammie and micah is incomparable."
