ELOPEMENT + intimate wedding PHOTOGRAPHEr

hey, you made it!

So glad you're here! The name's Luke (he/him). Around here we value authenticity, inclusivity, and keeping it real (please be your weird-ass true selves!). You'll be able to look forward to an unforgettable experience exploring gorgeous locations while we co-create stunning art documenting your love with meaning and intention.

Fun fact: you deserve a day true to who you are and what you want as a couple. It's YOUR wedding day, after all! Getting married doesn't have to be stressful – it can actually be a hell of a lot of fun and even relaxing or healing :)  Did you breathe a sigh of relief there? Good. When dreaming up your elopement, go ahead and shoot for the stars!

When you elope, you make the rules. Want to chase waterfalls? Do it. Want to eat pizza on the beach? Please. Say your vows among the towering redwoods? Say no more. Go bigfoot hunting? I thought you'd never ask!

Whether a group of loved ones tags along on your adventure or it's just the two of you, I'll help you find incredible locations for your photos and help craft a day you'll fondly look back on for years to come. 

The thing I loved most and that everyone can just see is that he really was able to capture the love between my husband and I, in such a lovely way, I just really feel like it captured OUR love and that it wasn't staged, forced or posed. It was just us, dorkiness and all, and he captured that pure happiness and uniqueness. His eye is amazing and he just really made the day magical and fun.

My husband and I hired Luke for our intimate wedding in Joshua Tree National Park from sunrise to sunset and it instantly felt like we’d known each other for years. He made us comfortable and it felt like we had an old friend shooting our wedding. The photos are stunning and perfectly captured our personalities and our wedding day. He also had knowledge of the park and area so that we could trust him to location scout and not have to worry about it. In addition he is so creative and captured some amazing pool and lantern photos, coming up with ideas on the spot in different locations that ended up turning out great. I want to relive the day and I’d hire him again in a heartbeat.

Everything went so perfectly. Luke made it so easy and effortless and fun. You can just tell he loves his job and that makes it so easy to work with him. He hyped us up which helped make some amazing artwork and because of that we have so many STUNNING memories captured. Our house is going to become a shrine of all our adventures because we can’t pick our favorites 😂 We are so blessed to have worked with THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER and hope that our paths will cross again in the future 🖤

Luke's work speaks for itself! He was great to work with, he did a great job directing us and helping us to feel comfortable and have a great time. He went above and beyond and had the best ideas! We couldn't be happier with the way our photos turned out! We will cherish these photos forever!! Thank you Luke!!

Luke is AMAZING! He came out to Joshua Tree National Park with us to capture our engagement photos, which turned out amazing. Plus, we had so much fun hanging out with him in Palm Springs. And our photos from our 60-person wedding are INCREDIBLE. It was a rainy day and I was nervous about the ceremony being postponed, but Luke was so comforting and telling me how amazing the photos would turn out because of it. He was SO right. I highly recommend working with Luke, he nails it every time.

Luke is an amazing human and an even more an amazing artist. I knew after two seconds of meeting Luke that I NEEDED him to capture our anniversary photos. He’s the sweetest human you could ever meet and if you don’t hire him—YOU’RE WRONG!
