Where do you start?

Elopement planning guide

I’m always looking for secluded and overlooked options that will make the perfect spot for an elopement if you don’t already have a location in mind.

Accessibility

Having an elopement in the mountains without a strenuous hike is accessible for everyone. Eloping is inclusive for everyone.

Navigating family

Eloping doesn’t mean that friends and family are unable to come, but it does mean that ultimately this day is about you as a couple, and this is not their story but yours. If that is an intimate wedding or private ceremony, you decide what’s best.

Amelia Shahan

I’m an elopement photographer based out of Missouri. I love the look and feel of vintage film and offer not only the ability to capture your day with my digital cameras but also through 35mm film stock in color and black and white, as well as simulating the look of an 8mm video through modern means.

I believe you deserve more than a photographer who just takes good photos, but one who also has a knowledge of who you are as a couple and allows you the freedom to experience the emotions of getting married in a safe place.

My husband and I eloped ourselves and that was the decision that best suited us at the time. Eloping has changed its definition over the last ten years or so, and now it is a lot more fun for those considering it as an option. I love that it has grown into a way for couples to focus on their story and how they wish to celebrate the day they commit to each other. I am happy that we eloped and when we renew our vows, eloping again is definitely the plan.

The only way to capture the essence and emotion of a couple’s story is to get to know the people in front of the camera.
