Texas elopement packages

if a traditional wedding isnt your thing 

You're in the right place

So many couples get caught up in the stress of planning their big traditional wedding that by the time the day is said and done they have two common complaints. The wedding didn't represent them at all and the timeline was too jam-packed to even enjoy their own day.

I am here to give you another option.

about your elopement photographer

Hi friend! I am really glad you're here. My name's Nikole, I am a photographer, plant enthusiast, adventurer and amateur kayaker. I love the sound of flowing rivers and the way my clothes smell after sitting by a campfire. 

I value deeper human connection, my love language is quality time and I am always looking for new ways to get outside and places to explore.

I've combined all of my values and passions to create this business to give couples the option to have a day full of intention, quality time and best of all ADVENTURE.

I care about every detail

Finding your dream location;

I work to get to know you and understand what kind of adventure you are looking for. We will talk over the phone about all of your needs and once booked I will send more in depth questionnaires to learn even more about you. Then I create a customized location suggestion list with info and photos of each location. I scout each location in person before every elopement so that I know what to expect and can help you prepare accordingly. 

Check out my Best Places To Elope In Texas blog for some location ideas!

obtaining permits;

Using public land for a wedding ceremony or photography requires different types of permits and the requirements vary based off of location. Some permits you may need to get are special use permits, photography permits and every state park in Texas requires a day use reservation. Sometimes these can take up to thirty days to obtain. I help make sure you have all the info needed so that this process is simple and stress free! Some permits do charge a fee but that money goes towards funding the public lands we know and love. Plus it's significantly cheaper than a wedding venue.

Vendor Referrals:

When we have a location and the kind of adventures in mind then I will send recommended vendors to you. Some vendors you may want to hire for an elopement would be a florist, calligraphy artist, hair and makeup artist or even a bakery for an elopement dessert! You might want to book a helicopter ride or off road tour guide too! 

Customized packing lists;

Part of preparing for an adventure is making sure you have everything you need! Even all of those just in case items. I use my experience with Texas adventures as well as thouroughly research any location we will use to create a customized packing list for you. To ensure you have all the right gear and clothing for whatever your adventure throws your way.

Timeline building;

timeline blog post!

After location scouting I am able to make timeline suggestions and keep track of light to ensure you get those epic views! I always encourage leaving ample room for being spontaneous and taking your time. Some things to keep in mind may be that specific locations offer a lot more privacy at sunrise so reading your vows at that time might be important to you. Or eloping during summer in Texas would mean you'll want to make sure and take a break during the hottest time of the day or make time for a swim! Each timeline is created with your experience being the first priority. Epic photos are the cherry on top. If you want to learn more about elopement timelines you can check out my 

day of logistics;

My workflow is designed so that by the time your day comes we have our gear ready as well as our locations and our timeline nailed down with room for wiggle. I like to have maps saved and downloaded for off-grid use, we will have plan b options in the case of dangerous weather or full parking lots. If your trail requires a 4-wheel drive vehicle then we've done the research and are ready to get there.  If you forget anything I've probably got some backups for you. If you need help carrying your bouquet I'll stuff it in my backpack. Couples have even referred to me as their Sherpa before!

Your elopement is your wedding day! It deserves the same care and attention as a traditional wedding. 

elopements are so much more than a photoshoot 

Your story holds so much value and deserves to be documented for you and your loved ones to cherish. Choosing to elope means giving yourself space to be fully present on your wedding day, it means having the time to relax and take it all in. It means intimate moments and quality time. It means adventure and experience. It does not mean compromise or cutting yourself short. 

I truly believe giving yourselves a minimum of five hours for this gives you the best experience possible and I highly encourage full day elopements. You want that wiggle room to be spontaneous. You’ll be glad you have those extra moments captured to share with friends and family who weren’t there with you in person. You will be grateful to have the space to show up as you are and be fully present without the constraints of a packed timeline.

some pros of a full day elopement;

Give room to be spontaneous and not feel rushed. 

Split the day in half to experience the sunrise and the sunset.

The images will document the full story rather than just a small piece. This is especially important when sharing the photos with those who wont be there in person.

Add things like a picnic, a swim in your favorite river or time to read letters from your loved ones.

Reviews

"Having Nikole as our elopement photographer was the best decision! She literally made everything so easy! We were so scared about the whole process because we’ve never been in Texas before and the first thing we were going to do was elope! Nikole helped us with each and every doubt I had. She always had an answer and so many great ideas for our day that it even made the whole process very exciting!

Our experience on our elopement day was BEYOND THIS WORLD! We enjoyed every minute of it and never had to worry about anything!! Nikole made sure that everything worked out as we wanted. It was the best day and experience of our lives. One of the things I appreciated the most was her thoughtfulness. We had to start hiking before sunrise and she made sure we stayed warm and cozy by bringing hand warmers and extra layers! She made us feel as if we had known her for many years!

Our photos are the most precious memory of the best day of our lives! She was able to capture every meaningful moment and expression of love. "
