I believe an elopement is for couples who crave an intimate and stress free experience. Elopements are rule free celebrations where the only focus is on this epic commitment two people are making to each other. A celebration where all people present, whether it’s 2 or 20 are there to cheer on and support this incredible union.

Unleash the possibilities.

this is what i offer each elopement →

When you choose to Elope, you're choosing to shed expectations and do things different. Leave the large guest list, the long ceremony, and those external expectations behind and let’s hit the trail. Your wedding experience should be full of what makes you and your partner come alive. Hiking, biking, relaxing in nature, rock climbing, or trying something new (like canyoneering). Give yourselves all the time in the world to exchange vows, craft your own ceremony, and soak in your moment—your way.

Here is your invitation to re-imagine your wedding day!

An Elopement is a wedding experience that is hand tailored to the people who are eloping. Say goodbye to the pressure that goes into planning a big wedding! Say hello to dancing to beat of your own drum and beginning your married life in a way that honors you and your partner's unique story. Traditional weddings can be magical and this style fits many people. But there is another way of doing things that is an option for those who want to avoid the stress that comes with large weddings. As one of my couples put it “I don’t want to plan a wedding for everyone else to enjoy but me.”

Often when people think of eloping they think of quick courthouse ceremonies done in secret or without much thought. Nowadays that is SO not the case!

...If we elope, does that mean we will be married by Elvis?

ACTIVITY IDEAS—I know the in's and out's of the Eastern Sierra and Southern Utah (and everywhere in between!). I can help you brainstorm activities to do to make your day even more incredible than you imagined!

TIMELINE—Have an idea for what you want your day to look like but unsure how to fill out the schedule? Don’t worry—I will help plan your timeline. This way we can be sure to choose a location during the best time of day for light, or best time of year for weather.

VENDOR—I will help you find the perfect vendors to make the rest of your planning seamless. Need a florist, officiant, videographer, cake maker, caterer, or musician who will work in your chosen location? No problem! I can recommend those.

LOCATION SCOUTING—I help you find the perfect location (if you haven’t found it already). I scout these spots in person to watch when the light is best and figure out how to plan for the best experience.

THIS is WHAT I bring to EaCH Adventure ELOPEMENT: 

EXTRA—I come prepares with items you may not think to bring: extra headlamps, a GPS for tracking our route, extra snacks and water, as well as a first aid kit (with experience in wilderness first aid).

OFFICIANT—I can also sign your marriage license- I’m an ordained officiant. So if you don’t want to hire an officiant or make a family member fill the role- you can say your vows to each other and I can sign the paperwork.

I cannot wait to help guide you through the photo experience you've always dreamed of. 

You might think I’m just here to take photos of your big day, but there’s so much more to it! Consider me your guide/teammate throughout this process—I’m here to help give you ideas and advice on creating a meaningful, fun, authentic day. Do you want something a little more adventurous? Having worked as a trained wilderness guide, I will come prepared to help you have the best time out on the trail or recommend guide services to get you where you want to go. I have a unique perspective to offer when it comes to safety and planning. Don't feeling like putting a on harness or getting extreme? No worries! I am here to help you find the perfect spot for your ceremony, recommend the best vendors to work with, help carry your things up a mountain, build you a timeline for your day so we can include everything you want, and SO MUCH more.

I AM YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER, GUIDE, & FRIEND.

Jaymie is beyond talented and give you more than just photos, she helps create moments that you will treasure for a lifetime. We came in looking for a photographer but we ended up with a friend! Her photos are beyond breathtaking. Jaymie not only took photos of our special day, she added more than we could have ever imagined. I will always recommend Jaymie to anyone looking for moments to be captured and created together!

My fiance and I are getting married in Mammoth Lakes next fall, and wanted to take engagement photos during our annual camping trip to the Mammoth/June Lake area this summer. We booked a session with Jaymie and our experience was beyond amazing. She has such a quick turnaround and her photos are excellent quality. I'm very camera shy but felt comfortable during the session. Her calm and warm nature made it much easier to relax and feel natural. We enjoyed our time with Jaymie so much we would love if she could do our wedding photos as well! It definitely takes patience and a great attitude to try and photograph two cats and a husky at the same time.

Her calm and warm nature made it much easier to relax and feel natural.

Jaymie has expertly captured so many important moments of my life and I couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity to relive these cherished memories. Planning our shoots was so easy and her work never gets in the way of my authentic experience. I get to just be myself, doing my thing. Most of these photos I didn't even notice her taking. What a gift! Many of the images feel so powerful that I can't even believe they're me! Jaymie has been there, behind a camera to bear witness to some of the proudest moments of my life. I couldn't be more thankful for her work. Book her! You will be so happy you did!

Many of the images feel so powerful that I can't even believe they're me!

"My husband and I took our first trip to Mammoth Lakes and it was absolutely amazing! A big part of what made the trip so wonderful was Jaymie! We wanted one of a kind photographs of us doing what we love - being in a beautiful landscape, hiking together. Jaymie made our vision come to life! She is so friendly and personable and she knows her way around Mammoth. Not only did we get beautiful and thoughtful pictures, we had so much fun and made a new friend. Thank you Jaymie!!!"

Not only did we get beautiful and thoughtful pictures, we had so much fun and made a new friend.
