When you choose to have an unhurried wedding that is intentionally crafted to maximize the focus on your marriage, it’s important that every moment and every memory is documented.

What lasts after your wedding day? 
Your love. 
And your photos that hold your memories. 


These are what remain.


Because this is your forever.

We want you to love your wedding photos. To hang them in your house, to flip through the pages of your wedding album as a family. To look back at your photos in 1 year, 10 years, 50 years - and be transported back to that day. To relive every minute of your elopement. To feel the wind on your skin, to hear the ocean waves, to reflect and remember each intimate moment you two shared.

Your Wedding will be one of the most incredible days of your life. 

We’re here to make sure those memories last forever. 

Not only will we capture your wedding memories through photos, we’ll also be your support as we work together to create your ideal adventure elopement.

We’ll provide our assistance with planning, custom location recommendations, activity suggestions based on your interests, permitting assistance, timeline building, and more - so you can be yourself on your wedding day, be truly present in every moment, and start off your marriage with your greatest adventure yet!

Your wedding can be absolutely anything you want it to be.

When you close your eyes and dream about how you want to get married: remove all expectations, limits of location, and worry about logistics. The world is at your fingertips - let your imagination run wild!

If you could do anything, how would you want to start the rest of your life with your new spouse?

We believe that from start to finish, your wedding day can be a reflection of your unique values, passions, and desires. You two are one of a kind; your wedding can show it.

So think up anything you want for your elopement, beyond your wildest dreams, and let us help you make it happen.

Imagine your dream day:
     Are you on the coast, in a forest, on a mountaintop, in a desert, next to a glacier, on a black sand beach?

What do you and your love do?
     Do you explore waterfalls, have a romantic picnic in a meadow, run around Paris in the rain, paint on top of a mountain, snuggle up and
     stargaze, take a helicopter ride to Alaskan glaciers, paddle a canoe on a lake, wander around a European city, dance in the middle of
     nowhere, take a gondola ride through a canal in Venice, curl up next to a bonfire and roast s’mores, take a boat and go island
     hopping, chase the northern lights in Iceland, take a float plane to a remote location, wade through a slot canyon, jump in an alpine lake?

We’ll say this again and again: your wedding can be WHATEVER you want it to be! 

It's your wedding day.
You. Can. Do. WHATEVER. You. Want.



Are you on the coast, in a forest, on a mountaintop, in a desert, next to a glacier, on a black sand beach?

Because you deserve a wedding you will
remember.

The Experience

When we photograph your wedding, we capture the raw emotion and candid moments as you experience them. So when you look back on your photos, you remember not just how your wedding looked, but how it felt.



We’re not here to primp and pose you perfectly till there’s not a single hair out of place. We’re all about the candid, the unposed, the beautifully imperfect moments. You’ll look back at your photos and think “that’s so us.” 



Rather than posing you, we create space for authentic moments of connection between the two of you, inviting joy, intimacy, and emotion into your time together. So you and the love of your life can be fully present in your adventure.

documentary-style

authentic emotions

candid and REAL

“Our experience with Sammie and Micah was truly once in a lifetime. As a team of photographers they’re extremely skilled in the way that they can gently encourage spouses 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.”

"truly a once in a lifetime experience"

- Brooke + Aaron

We married in 2019 on an ocean cliff with just 20 of our closest loved ones, and it was the best day ever.

We’re passionate about being support and encouragement for our couples, to help you have the elopement of your dreams - intentional, free, unhurried, and true to who you are. 

We love elopements so much, we did it ourselves! 

WE’RE MORE THAN YOUR
ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHERS.

WE’RE YOUR ELOPEMENT EXPERTS,
here to help you through the process.

You’ll receive our support and guidance through every step of the process. Whether that’s choosing your locations, planning activities, crafting a custom timeline, figuring out all the right permits, or anything else.

We are here for you. 

Every one of our Elopement Packages comes with:

So take a deep breath.
You don’t have to have it all figured out.

Unsure where you want to elope? No worries!

Most of our couples come to us without an exact location, and that’s where we love to help out! With an ever-expanding database of incredible elopement locations around the world (taking into account the time of year, level of privacy, accessibility of location, weather, ideal lighting, and more!), we will help you discover your vision for your elopement location, and we’ll give you custom location recommendations based on your vision and interests.

Location scouting and recommendations

Does thinking about navigating permits for your location make you want to pull your hair out? We’ve been there.

That’s why we spend those hours searching through maps and websites, spending hours on the phone being passed around from one government agency to the next - so you don’t have to. We’ll find the accurate information for you, so we make sure we’re doing everything legally - then all you have to do is fill out the form!

Your Custom Elopement Timeline

How much time should you allot for each portion of the day? What order should locations and activities occur to ensure optimal lighting and the best experience? How do you create an organized, comprehensive timeline that doesn’t put pressure on you or make you feel rushed during your wedding?

We thrive on building you a custom timeline - with the organization needed so you can relax knowing it’s all taken care of, and also with the margin and freedom needed so you can have an unhurried, go-with-the-flow wedding adventure. We know just how to find that perfect balance for you.

Did you know that you can take a sunset sail on your wedding day? Or take a helicopter to remote, private locations? Or set up an easel and paint together in a meadow? Or go for ice cream in a small beach town? There are endless activity opportunities when you choose to have an adventure elopement.

We’re constantly dreaming up activity possibilities, so we can help you find activities that resonate with you and your personalities. Whether you want activities that are relaxed, artistic, nature, city, luxury, rugged, simple - we’ve got ideas for you, tailored to your interests and to your elopement location.

Activity Recommendations

Whether you’re getting married 3 hours from your hometown or in multiple countries you’ve never set foot in, we’re here to help you navigate your traveling elopement. Wondering how to pack a wedding dress for a flight? How many days should you arrive before your destination wedding? How to figure out wedding permitting in another country?

You can ask us anything, and we’ll help you figure it out! (Or if you're already an experienced traveler, we're here for ALL the stories!). By the end of everything, we’ll be old friends, swapping travel stories and reminiscing on a beautiful shared experience.

"I have never experienced such an intentional photo shoot. After reflecting on our photo gallery but more importantly the moments it held, I remember saying out loud “these are the pictures we will show our grandkids one day.” Timeless. When we shared with our family members, they were blown away by how incredible the photos were. More importantly, we gained wonderful friends who made it so easy to be ourselves and helped make this dream a reality for us. We will look back at our day with a full heart and teary eyes because they set the tone to create a beautiful and peaceful atmosphere."

"these are the pictures we will show our grandkids one day."

- Alexis + Sean

It doesn’t matter if you have no idea where to start with planning your adventure wedding, or if you've got all the details figured out - we’re here for you either way. 

Here's what our process together will look like from start to finish in 5 simple steps:

1

Inquire and Book

Once you’re officially booked, you’ll gain access to our “Ultimate Elopement + Adventure Wedding Guide”, 70+ pages packed with valuable information to help you craft your dream elopement, exclusive to The Chaffins’ Couples. We'll be by your side helping you brainstorm, narrow down, and finalize your location(s), time of year, vendors, timeline, and activities!

We’ll be as involved as you want us to be, and we’ll never steer you toward something we don’t think is the best choice for you and your marriage. Our goal is always to empower you to make the choice that feels right to you. 

2

Planning Your Adventure

Most of our couples choose to add an engagement session to their elopement package. Not only is this a way to have an adventure with your partner even sooner (and have some beautiful photos in non-wedding attire), but it’s a helpful opportunity for us to get to know each other better. This helps you get familiar and comfortable with our process and with being in front of the camera.

This also helps us get to know your story - and the more we know your story, the better we can tell your story through your wedding photos.

We always recommend this because it’s proven time and time again to be an invaluable experience for connection.

3

Engagement Adventure Session

Then comes that wonderful morning.

The one where you wake up and get ready to have the adventure of a lifetime with your best friend.

Whether it's one or multiple days, whether it’s a city, forest, or coast, whether it's with 20 of your loved ones or just the two of you.

This will be an experience of a lifetime from start to finish. 

4

Your Incredible Elopement Experience!

Soon after your adventure of a lifetime, you’ll receive your last (and maybe most important) wedding present: your entire edited photo gallery!

Grab your favorite drink and some tissues, snuggle up on the couch, and be transported back to those most incredible of days: your elopement.

Along with your gallery, we’ll also send you a curated design for your fine-art album. Made with museum quality materials and designed to last, this album is the start of the beautiful legacy you will leave. You can add/change what you like, and then soon after you order your album, you’ll be holding your very first family heirloom.
