Elopement & Wedding FAQ & Investment

Ah! I am so excited you're here ready to talk about numbers! Ok, call me a bit of geek but I really do love spread sheets and numbers. Even though I am pretty terrible at math. Like, if we were to meet in person and you had me calculate a fee for you I'd most like pull out my iPhone calculator app because its that bad. But hey, we all cannot be perfect at everything, right? So let's get back to photographing you! All the pricing below is set, I don't offer discounts or exceptions, I mean unless your my sister, which I only have one so...hope this is helpful. I look forward to hearing from you!

Have more questions, keep scrolling to read F.A.Q. (Frequently asked questions for all you like me for years who thought U-Haul was a clever name not the fact that you actually haul it. Haha.)

Mountain Denver, Colorado Elopement &  Wedding F.A.Q.

How many hours of adventureelopement photography do you offer?

  • 2-4 hours

Do you offer a break in adventure elopement photography time?

  • Yes Emmy has a 4 hour maximum for time she will be available to photograph, this includes any travel time from locations and hikes. So she offers breaks in coverage to compensate for her time limits.
  • For example we can start our photography time at 1pm photograph for 3 hours straight, take an hour break at 4pm and photograph for one more hour from 5-6pm.

How many hours of Wedding Photography do you offer?

  • 6-8 hours with Brittany. You can add on a second photographer if you choose too!

Does driving or hiking to and from a location include our photography time?

  • Yes, once we start photographing whether that is at the beginning of a trailhead or at a home or hotel in which you're getting dressed and ready, we are capturing the story of your elopement and part of that is setting the scene.

How far will you hike for an adventure elopement?

  • One mile is Emmy's current limit for hikes. I apologize if this is an inconvenience to you. Please read Meet Emmy page to understand more.
  • But don’t limit yourself to hiking for adventure elopements, let’s look at 4x4 Jeep elopement rentals or Snow Cat elopement rentals or even a Helicopter ride elopement. NO need to break that much of a sweat about my limitations, we can get creative to get to epic secluded locations.

Where can we take photos?

  • We travel anywhere so we can literally go anywhere but we usually suggest somewhere geographically close to you, or an area you like/frequently visit.
  • We do have a mile hike limit due to personal reasons visit my about page for more info.

  • Let's go to the mountains if you hike together! Let's go to the beach if you surf together!

Do You Offer Engagement Sessions?

  • Yes! They are separate from your elopement package but included in your wedding package. We love doing engagement photos before elopements because we want to get to know you well, and make you feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day, so what better way than to put you in front of our lens!

  • Engagement sessions usually take place at your favorite location. This could be a mountain top, where you had your first picnic in the mountains, or snowboarding down your favorite skill hill.

We LOVE your work but need more hours for our Elopement?

  • I work with an amazing associate, Brittany who can help give you all more coverage. Contact us so we can chat about how this would work.

How many hours of elopement photography do you offer?

  • 4 hours is my maximum coverage time but I offer breaks in coverage. (See first FAQ question.)

How long will it take us to see our wedding photos after the wedding or elopement day?

  • A maximum of 90 days

Do you charge travel fees?

  • All travel fees are built in to your customized package! Just let us know where you want to go for engagement photos, elopement photos and your wedding day.
  • For locations outside of Colorado see next question.

Do you photograph outside of Colorado?

  • Yes! We love to travel. Destination Elopements will include all travel fee in your customized package.

    Can I see a sample galleries?

    We love your work but cannot afford you:

    • I'd LOVE to work with you all! Each year I offer 6 discounts to clients with lower income. Depending on your household income I can offer you a specific discount. Contact me to learn more and don't forget to mention that you aren't able to pay my current rates due to your lower income.
