I want your elopement or intimate wedding to be an experience, not simply an event. I’ll encourage you to consider how to make each other feel loved and honored throughout the whole process. You get to experience life with one another, and your wedding should start with that exact excitement and intimacy. When you’re focused on each other instead of worrying about photos, we can create deeper, more intimate images. 

Chances are, you want to feel like this is a day that’s just for you.

What's included:

I may be the only other person at your elopement so I honor this opportunity. I am invested in making you feel at HOME even though your family or friends may not be physically present. 

My part of one of the best days of your life really starts with our first phone call.  I get to know you. I listen to you. I share ideas with you based on what you want. We work closely together, sometimes for months, so by the time we meet in real life, we are already connected.

This is the reason I customize all of my packages because each couple is different, I work with you to create a day/experience of your dreams. Below shows what all is included in base package- a starting point.

 Let's hop on a call and bounce around ideas, dream out loud and create something magical.

My approach is to ENCOURAGE you to have an intentional and meaningful day dedicated to celebrating your love. 


Katie (owner and led photographer) does all of the editing along with the other backups and gallery uploads, with my primary focus being to edit them the way they FELT when we shot, so the memory matches the real moment. During the busy season, turn around times may fluctuate since its just me, but on average, full galleries are delivered within 4-6 weeks. However, I always provide sneak peaks within 48 hours! 

Wedding packages with the Wild Within Us range from $2,000- $8,000.  Due to the nature of getting married in a tourist destination, with an abundance of options for adventure and location choices, I have found that building out packages on a guest to guest basic is the best for everyone involved.  Longer hikes, with more time associated and much more planning  will be a higher investment but I would encourage merging the idea of adventure and exploring into your wedding day or wedding weekend. 

I have found it's best not to give you a specific number of the images you will receive. You won't receive every single image taken,  because I shoot like a maniac, but you will receive every image that is worthy of being seen and tells your story. Engagement and Formal sessions average 75-125 images and 50-75 images per hour of shooting time on the wedding day.

Zion is my home so I take a limited number of weddings and elopements outside of Zion. I usually stick to southern Utah but I am open to take a few weddings across the nation or international if its the right fit! We are more than happy to travel, and fees are always kept reasonable.
