You're likely not inviting everyone to your elopement. Photographs matter so you can share your day with those who weren’t present. They give you the chance to look back on your day too!  

you and your story are worth it

Your wedding day can be relaxed and fun!  Slow down so you can enjoy the experience.  Isn't that why you're eloping in the first place?!

Relax and take it all in

"Choosing Laura as our photographer was easily the best decision we made when planning our wedding! 

We had an intimate ceremony with just 10 guests at an Airbnb in the mountains and then followed that with a local hike in our full wedding attire. 

Laura did the planning of picking the hiking spot, building the timeline to perfectly align with the sunset, and of course taking the most ridiculously incredible pictures I have ever seen!"

"Just wow!!"

“We had the most amazing experience with Laura!! She was very friendly and treated us like we were close friends and also took THE BEST pictures I’ve ever seen.”

"Amazing experience!"

The Sparks in the Forest experience begins with 4 hours photography coverage.  Your story and wedding day deserves more than just a 1-2 hour experience!

Holy shit!  You’re really doing it!  You relax and soak it all in, I capture every beautiful moment.  After you do the damn thing, I always send a couple of teasers/sneak peeks within 24 hours for you both to enjoy.  The entire gallery will be delivered in about 4-6 weeks!  

the big day

We keep in touch and I’ll recommend awesome vendors, help you find a killer location, and create a killer timeline to make the most of your day!

Planning

Let’s schedule a time to chat and/or have some drinks over FaceTime or Zoom.  You tell me all about your relationship and how awesome it is.  You ask any questions you might have for me.  If we seem like the right fit for each other, then you sign a contract and pay a retainer to book your day.

How It Works

I don't take on every elopement I'm approached with. This will be one of the most important days of your lives and you should absolutely have vendors that you connect with!  It's also important to me to work with couples who share my brand values!

You deserve the absolute best so let's make sure I'm a good fit for you!
