For couples who have allocated more time to plan for their wedding... we highly recommend getting engagement photos or participate in a bridal shoot. Sure, they're fun, and you capture some great memories... but they are also a great opportunity to get used to working with your photographer. Even better, these photos are a great way to incorporate "save the date" and wedding invitation announcements. If you want to really plan ahead, we can also use this time to create your "thank you" cards and tie it all in together. Best of all... many of our packages include your choice of a engagement photos or a bridal shoot as a free gift.
I love a good wedding... but my favorite of all are elopements. Durango has so many couples who travel here wanting to say "I do" in a small, intimate setting with (maybe) just a few select best friends and family present. We define an elopement as having 10 or less people, and they can be seriously AMAZING. Couples who are eloping might be doing it with a very well-defined pre-formulated plan; or they may doing it totally spontaneously and are in need some good photos to send off to everyone who couldn't be there on their special day. I think the thing that I like the most about elopements is that the day really is focused more on the couples, their bond, and their love without a lot of the pomp-and-circumstance in the way. There is way less drama, less moving parts, and I get to be a part of your day in a fun, non-invasive way. I've shot more elopements than I can count, and they're totally my fav.
Our elopement packages start at $499; and we have a 1-day turn around time so that you can publish your news to Facebook (or wherever) immediately.

The reality is that I love showing off your connection as a couple. In order to capture the real you, I need to get to know you first. I want to become your friend and give you an experience, not just take pretty pictures.
