    How I cater to offbeat weddings

    We believe in an inclusive, community based, cultural experience. As advocates of your unique love story, we love all bodies and deeply believe in a meaningful elopement experience captured in photos and video.

    How We cater to Offbeat Brides

    Let’s be honest. The wedding industry (and society as a whole) remains racist/sizeist/hetronormative/culturally vanilla. If you don’t fit in their box, your story probably isn’t out there in the media. If you’re not thin/white/straight, you might not feel like you belong.

    We want to change that.

    The best way we’ve found to cultivate the work and celebrate these relationships is to be open and honest in our beliefs. We want to see these communities better represented in not just the wedding industry, but the whole world. We want culture and experience to be at the front of what we do. We want to see all couples represented, celebrated, and validated! We encourage every single couple to focus on the wedding day of their dreams, to let go of societal expectations, and to have a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

    We consider ourselves “cultural elopement experts” because we want more people to feel seen, celebrated for who they are, but also have a meaningful wedding day. No more of this cookie cutter, pulling off on the side of the road experience. We lead you on an experience that lets you soak in the local culture. We believe in being socially conscious. 


    Kelsey and Jake were an absolute DREAM to work with! Kelsey helped me plan the elopement, finding some really sweet vendors and helping to navigate the whole process. Not many people (let alone photographers) want to hike up 13,000 feet at 3am for sunrise, but Kelsey and Jake are up for the challenge.
    -Cassidie & Austin P.

    Kelsey and Jake are the BEST! Honestly, being in front of the camera does not come naturally to most people (my husband and I included), but Kelsey and Jake made the whole experience so much more fun and easy. We didn't want it to end!
    -Amber & Kyle S.

    I'd like to say that booking with Kelsey & Jake was the absolute best decision we made while planning our elopement! They were such a fun and adventurous couple to have around! They matched our goofiness and kept the energy of the day alive every step of the way!
