YOU'VE DECIDED THE BIG TRADITIONAL WEDDING vibe

JUST ISN'T YOU

The idea of having a 200-person wedding, with 20 bridal party members, and every "must-do" wedding event was enough to make you barf.

So instead, you've decided to do things a little differently.

You've decided to have a wedding day that's all about having the best day of your life, surrounded by only your favorite people (maybe even a dog or two), probably eating some bomb food in a beautiful place, right? A unique day with all of the stuff that's important to you, and none of the stuff that isn't. A day that you can curate to be the perfect reflection of you.

But now that you're starting to plan this thing, you might have realized that even though you're eloping, there's still a lot to plan! And now you don't really know where to start. You've never eloped before, so you don't know how this all works and it's starting to stress you out.

Don't sweat it. That's where we come in!

DOG OBSESSED, DONUT EATING, OREGON ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER + VIDEOGRAPHER DUO

We're Natasha and Brian! A husband and wife, Oregon elopement photographer duo. When we're not getting slimed by our own slobbery dog Fern, or helping you plan your dream wedding day, you can probably find us alpine lake lounging, making a weird new kimchi flavor, or deep on the forestry roads in our (always dirty) Tacoma blasting some indie alt or rap (there's rarely an in between lol).

We're your photographers, die-hard dog petters, and donut-eaters that are all about playful banter, real conversations, and no icky small talk.

Lovin' the big moments, the quiet moments, the silly moments – but especially the in-between moments. The moments that are unadulterated and unfiltered. The ones where you are the real you. That's the version of you that we'll catch in your photos. And seriously...we wanna pet your dog.

our WORK WITH COUPLES LIKE YOU HAS BEEN FEATURED IN

We're all about encouraging organic moments and letting them unfold naturally. Instead of posing you, we know just how to make real moments happen...with none of the cheesy, stand-there-and-smile-at-the-camera bullshit. Our specialty lies in helping you be you and capturing you just as you are.

We tell every part of your story as it is – from the blurry moments, to the messy moments, and everything in between. We'll even plan the whole thing from start to finish with plenty of personalized touches in between. Consider us your guides the whole way through so you can spend more time focused on making actual memories, instead of worrying about silly poses and navigating it all.

This day isn't just about photos for you.

It's about the story of you. The real you.

So let's tell your story – together.
