YOUR ELOPEMENT WITH VINE & VOW
I hold an especially magical place in my heart for elopements—small, intimate gatherings that focus on the things that matter most. There is something wonderful about a very small wedding party in a spectacular location that brings people together in unexpected ways. Some of the most intensely emotional weddings I’ve witnessed have been elopements with fewer than 15 guests.
I want to create a special vision together with you—immortalizing the bonds, emotions, and moments that make your elopement wedding so unique. Beautiful photographs are an investment—truly an heirloom—that you can revisit over and over again with family, friends, or a quiet moment alone. I strive to create stunning images that will be cherished for generations.
LET'S PLAN - FOR A FIRST LOOK
Over and over again I’m asked what my favorite moment of photographing a wedding is; and every time my answer is the same: the moment the groom sees his beautiful bride for the very first time. There are no words to describe the incredible emotion that flows between the couple during this special and fleeting moment, so I document it with images instead!
First Look photographs generally happen directly before the ceremony begins, but after the bride and groom have gotten dressed for the wedding. It’s an amazing thing to watch, and my clients are constantly telling me how meaningful the First Look images are for years to come.
Although traditional weddings many times don’t allow much time for a First Look, elopements generally have much more flexibility in their schedules. As such, we can plan a first look into your elopement experience without detracting from the timeline of the day overall. Although a First Look might not be for every couple, I absolutely love capturing this special moment for you to re-live again and again.... but it is NOT a must. It’s one of those moments that happens only once in a lifetime...you’re going to want images to remember it!
HEY, WHY DO I NEED AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
Aside from providing you with beautiful, emotional portraits in a casual setting, engagement sessions allow us to get to know eachother before the big day. Knowing what to expect from your photographer and feeling relaxed in front of the camera are both so critical for photo success. During the engagement session, I love to work with you to find the styles, smiles, angles, and poses that work best for you as a couple in a pressure-free setting. That way, when your wedding day comes around, we’ll have already practiced picture-taking together and everyone will know what to expect!
Engagement sessions are the time for you and your beloved to show your inner selves, your love for one another, and your favorite outfits in a relaxing and enjoyable environment. You are welcome to choose a location that speaks to you in a personal way, or let me recommend a few of my favorite spots based on experience. Some couples choose that special spot where he proposed, others their favorite restaurant, winery, or flower field. I can’t wait to get you in front of the lens and bring out what makes you a special couple!
I require a 30% initial deposit plus a signed contract in order to book your elopement date. Many clients book me as much as a year in advance, so please reach out before booking to make sure your date is still available. I can't wait to hear from you and get started making plans! The love in your images are going to be EPIC!!! (Elopements may not go over 50 miles of Fort Worth, TX) **Travel Fee applies over 50miles
