ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT + INTIMATE WEDDING PACKAGES

For the dauntless and radically authentic

So you decided eloping is right for you:

You're not about that stressful AF wedding planning life.

Familial and societal expectations? Never heard of 'em.

Throwing a party for everyone but you? Not today, Satan. 

Big, traditional weddings aren't for everyone. Why spend that cash on a bunch of people you haven't talked to for years when you could use it on a truly unforgettable experience that makes you feel alive?

Go somewhere gorgeous you love or that you've always wanted to visit. Get married under a waterfall or a dream destination instead of a stuffy wedding venue. Live life on your own terms. 

From helping you find the perfect locations to crafting your timeline, I'll be here to make this a wedding day you'll fondly reminisce about for decades to come. 

Let's face it...








Treat yourselves to an experience you know you'll enjoy.

A *Few* Reasons to Elope or Have an Intimate Wedding:

Rest assured your search is over. Hire Luke, you will laugh, you will cry, you will walk away with photos that are truly art.

"Rest assured your search is over"

Luke was awesome to work with. His work speaks for itself and his talent is undeniable. Luke was also very easy to work with. Friendly, personable, dedicated, and great at adjusting on the fly. His photos were incredible and he was nothing but friendly and professional during our shoot. We can’t thank him enough. He will go above and beyond and the results will blow you away.

– C + M

Luke has been extraordinary! Luke is easy-going, responsive, makes you feel like getting the best shots are his number one priority, and most of all very creative, which was very important to us! We were lucky to have him as our photographer!

– M + E

Honestly, it's never too early to book with me if my calendar is open for that year. I hate having to turn people away!  My books are currently open for 2024-2025.

I photograph elopements and intimate weddings with up to 60 people. I don't shoot large traditional weddings, but I'd love to do your engagement session! Inquire here.

I do! You can pay in halves, thirds, or in full for 5% off. A retainer and signed contract are required to officially secure your date.

Not really! I don't actually do long hiking elopements. My approach focuses on driving to different lookouts and short, easy walks to get to the best scenery, as well as shooting at your accommodations.

You'll receive sneak peeks within a week, and I'll surprise drop your gallery on you Folklore-style via your email.
