Portland Adventure Elopement Photographer

Hi! I'm Katie!

And I care about your Yosemite wedding photographer experience. Why? Because I was in your shoes just last year!

In June, my husband and I made the big decision to elope! It was extremely important to both of us to have a wedding day experience that was uniquely all our own. We wanted a day that was relaxed, full of adventure and laughter and be a day that we could fully enjoy from start to finish.

This is why I'm so passionate about elopements and intimate weddings! Because I want to give YOU the same experience that we had. A day that deeply reflects who YOU are in one of the most epic places on the planet.

Yosemite National Park

It’s no secret.

Yosemite is not only one of the most beautiful locations in Northern California, but also one of the most beautiful and magical places on this planet! And it just so happens to also be a personal favorite of mine! In fact, it’s a place I hold very dear to my heart.

I remember growing up and road tripping through this magnificent park with my family in absolute awe of the grandiose vistas and the glow from the evening sun shining through the valley. Yosemite National Park is also the first place my boyfriend and I travel together, where he proposed to me between El Capitan and Half Dome with the soft morning light basking down on us. I left Yosemite with a fiance and a bunch of new, sweet and treasured memories. If you’re eloping in Yosemite, or thinking about doing so, let me be the first to say “HECK YES!” I’m head over heels with excitement for you guys and rest assured that no matter the season, the time of day or weather, this sprawling landscape full of waterfalls, cliffsides, woodlands and more will ALWAYS deliver.

Why elope?


My husband and I eloped! It’s true! We made the decision to have a small, intimate, intentional and meaningful wedding day in a national park with only 25 of our closest family members. And it was magic!

Eloping isn't about saving money or the stress of a bigger, more traditional wedding. It's all about YOU and the connection you share. It's about creating the most meaningful and incredible experience for you and your relationship. It's beautiful, emotional, intimate and unforgettable.

Whatever your reasons are for eloping, it truly is the most incredible way to start your new life together with a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in the most special and unique way and as an extra added bonus -- it opens up all the possibilities of marrying in an absolutely EPIC location! Still not sold on whether or not you should elope? Check out my blog post below!
