VALERIE & MICHAEL:
TWO WEIRDOS ADVENTURING TOGETHER SINCE 2017

The first time we met in person (cause we matched on Bumble
like the millennials that we are) we drove an hour and a half to
the coast to take photos of the sunset together. We’ve been
inseparable every since.

Between the two of us, we’ve seen 24 countries, can scrape by
in seven different languages, have seen The Office at least 6
times, and have captured countless love stories. When we’re
not shooting or editing, we spend virtually all of our free time
exploring, working on upcoming travel plans, finding new favorite breweries, or playing games together (we're big fans of Mario Kart, Wingspan, and MTG.)

WE BELIEVE IN ELOPING SO MUCH
THAT WE DID IT OURSELVES

Our experience eloping in Alaska only solidified our belief that eloping is the best way to get married, hands down. We spent the morning in our treehouse-style cabin, getting ready just the two of us (and our amazing photographers, Nate and Megan of Cedar and Pines!) After a tearful first look, we explored some glaciers via Alaska’s best mode of transportation – helicopter! Then we spent the afternoon on a six mile hike in the Chugach Mountains with our five best friends for our ceremony. We wrapped up the evening by heading back to our AirBnb for homemade burgers and a late night hot tub soak.

It was literally the best day of our lives.

WHY WOULD WE
WANT ALL-DAY
OR MULTI-DAY
COVERAGE?

IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE A DAY LONG PHOTOSHOOT

we pre

Think back to the last big milestone in your life. Perhaps the day you and your partner got engaged.
Take a moment to close your eyes and picture in as much vivid detail as you can everything that
happened that day. Where were you? Do you remember what you both were wearing? What was the
weather like? Did you notice that look of love in your partner’s eye? The way they were looking at
you knowing that you had both agreed on forever together?

I bet it’s all a bit of a blur now. And the same will, sadly, be true of your wedding day.
Sony actually did a little survey a few years ago and found that 54% of people don’t remember much
of their wedding day. That’s over half. And the reality is, even with doing your best to be present and
soak the whole day in, your memories of it will get softer over time. Your love story matters. The day
you get married matters. And it deserves to have its story told from beginning to end.

Your elopement day is about more than the posed photographs. When you have us all day we can help
you carve out space in your timeline to just enjoy yourselves, and we will be able to document those
genuine emotions in a way that won’t feel forced or rushed. We prioritize the moments and the
experience over the photos, because when you are having your best day, the photos are gonna rock.
