What is an ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT?
It is just that!
An elopement or very small wedding that is filled with adventure!
It can be a yurt sleepover with all your loved ones, in the middle of no where or just the two of you under a waterfall.
Think breathtaking views, becoming one with nature. People love this type of wedding because they feel most connected when in the great outdoors.
WHO WOULD DO THIS TYPE OF WEDDING?
The couples who want this tend to have a love of travel and passion for exploring. They want to be unique. They throw all the rules out the window and do things the way they want to. They typically don't want the stress that "traditional" can bring. They are fearless and definitely not afraid of a little dirt. They live life on the edge, wear their hearts on their sleeves and value experiences over things.
WHERE CAN YOU DO THIS?
With an adventure wedding, the possibilities are endless. From mountains, to waterfalls, to beaches, to caves. You can have quad rides, horseback riding, helicopter rides. Literally, wherever or however your imagination takes you!
WHEN SHOULD WE HAVE OUR ADVENTURE WEDDING?
Consider where you want to go and research.
Look at weather, does your destination have a rainy season?
Think about Tourism, is it a tourist area and does it have a peak season. If so, consider the crowds, longer lines and booked lodging.
How do we make this happen?
Contact me and we can reserve your date, ask questions, bounce ideas and then all you have to do from there is relax and adventure!
My name is Stephanie and I am the photographer for Marilyn Ray Photography. I am an educated and local award winning wedding photographer. I also specialize in Lifestyle and Marketing photography. If you know me, then you know I love going on adventures. I try to go to a different state and do something amazing at least once a year. I am very much at peace when I am in the middle of nature watching the sunrise or sunset. To me, You can't go see this beautiful waterfall, mountain top, or river and not feel some sort of peace!
I obviously have a TON of other things to knock off this bucket list of mine.
I love photography. I love being creative. I love showing people what I see through my lens. I see beauty in every direction, especially in people. I love sharing excitement of others. I love seeing people genuinely happy. Which is why I love photographing weddings. For the bride it may be the most stressful day but for me as a photographer it is the most beautiful. I love catching all those amazing special detailed moments that are otherwise forgotten because of the hustle and bustle of the day.
My ultimate goal was to be strictly an "Adventure Elopement" Photographer. I have always wanted to put my 2 passions in life together and make it something pretty amazing.
