Massive weddings are overrated.
Let's hike up a mountain, crack open some ciders (is my Pacific Northwest showing?), have a little dance party and get you and your best friend MARRIED.
It isn't about the bouquet tosses, flowers girls, or hundreds of guests.
It's about you and the person you love most on this big ol' planet taking a moment to choose each other forever.
Let's do this.
Hey you! My name is Jacque (pronounced like Jackie) and I'm the person behind the lens on this page! I am based in Washington state but LOVE working all over the world!
My job as your elopement photographer is also more than just your photographer. I will walk next to you throughout the planning process to ensure your elopement feels like YOU.
I can be your officiant, witness, dress bustler, bouquet creator, tissue holder and most of all: your biggest freaking cheerleader.
If you asked anyone who knows me pretty well, you'd probably hear at least one of those words above used to describe what I love the most!
On a typical day you'd find me snuggling with my pups Leia + Pickle, dragging my husband along on car adventures and day dreaming about being on airplanes!
My husband and I were suppose to have a big, elaborate wedding in May of 2020. When COVID-19 hit, we had to switch gears very quickly. We ended up having a small wedding ceremony with our immediate families in a sweet little grassy field, followed by grabbing burgers at our favorite local burger joint in our small town.
When we made the choice to shift gears, instead of being incredibly disappointed by the change, we were actually SO EXCITED! We realized all along that we just wanted to celebrate our love with just a few people that mattered the most and didn't truly care about creating an extensive, elaborate party for hundreds of guests.
That just wasn't US.

Your experience matters the most when it comes to your elopement. You are given the permission to make this day completely about you as a couple; whether it is as simple as running off to your local courthouse or as elaborate as a multi day outdoor adventure; this day is all about YOU.
At the end of the day, I want you to be able to look back on your photos and remember how amazing, authentic and vulnerable you felt in that moment when you were sealing the deal with your true love. Your love deserves to be celebrated so deeply and so fiercely; and I'll make damn sure that happens.
