Photographs are an investment
I call this an investment because you are investing in more than just photos. These images will serve as a time capsule to save your memories from your elopement day. Photographs are the one thing you get to take away with you after the day is over.
Meet your photographer
Hi I'm Cece,
I live in on a vegetable farm in Two Harbors, MN out of a Tiny House. In the winter months I work with insanely happy and high energy sled dogs and spend my off days canoeing or paddle boarding. I'm so glad you found your way here.
I photograph people and their elopements in a documentary style because after years of posing and telling people what to do, it still never looked or felt right for me.
I can't fabricate or direct the memories you experience. The way you hug and the way you elope can't be orchestrated, it just happens. I leave all expectations of how your day "should" look at the door and photograph with pure curiosity. I want you to get to experience this moment together as fully as possible without some random lady you found on the internet telling you what to do and where to look.
You won't be asked to perform for any photos. You can just do you and you don't need to be a model. Trust me, this is the pixie dust that makes the beautiful photos that lead you to this page.
Bring me along for the whole day! Great if you have a big hike or long excursion planned and want to capture the entire thing.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How many photos do I get?
I deliver 75+ images for every hour of shooting. Sometimes that means I deliver more per hour but you can count on receiving 75+ per hour of coverage. Every photo you recieve is yours to download, share or print.
How long does it take to get your photos?
I send over some sneak peeks over within the first few days after your wedding day. It takes about 4-6 weeks after your wedding day to receive your full gallery.

Yes, a $200 travel fee is applied to any locations that are outside of a 50 mile radius from Duluth, MN. This covers gas, hotel stay, and time spent traveling to your event. If your location is outside of the MN and WI area travel fees will vary.
Yes! On average most of my clients spend a very small portion of their day (20-30 minutes) taking posed portraits on their wedding day. These often include family portraits and the occasional wedding party photos. If you don't want to have any posed photos taken on your wedding day, I always HIGHLY encourage it! Let me know if this is something that interests you, I can explain more on how that looks and works.
How much money do I have to pay upfront?
To book your wedding date, I ask for a $750 non-refundable deposit and to have your contract signed. This holds your wedding date in my calendar and guarantees you're locked in for the wedding season.

Every elopement day includes help with creating a photo timeline. The timeline serves as a rough draft of what you want and expect to have happen on the day. My goal is that you feel prepared and supported prior to your wedding day.
A Glimpse of an Elopement
Tony + Anna eloped at the Duluth, MN Courthouse surrounded by their parents and siblings. After saying "I do", these two drove to Lake Superior alone to soak in some private time together along the beach. They brought camp chairs, skipped some rocks, and took off their shoes to dip their toes into the lake. The next stop was dinner at Va Bene where they met back up again with their families. They all shared dinner together and Tony's grandma gave an incredible speech to the newlyweds.
Their Elopement was photographed with a mix of both digital and film. See more photos from Anna + Tony's Story on the Blog
Step 1- Schedule a Call
You can get to know who I am, ask me any questions and you can decide if we are a good fit. There is no commitment to book it's most important to me that you are excited about who you're hiring to photograph your elopement day and that you're well informed in making your decision.
Bring any questions you might have to this call too!
Step 2- Choose a Package
Pick what package best fits your needs. You are always welcome to change or adjust your package at anytime. This gives me a great idea of what you might be needing for your day (ex. second shooters, an engagement session, or extra coverage. If you are stuck between two packages or add-on's. Let me know, I'm always happy to help you in deciding based on which one could work best for your desired amount of coverage.
Step 3- Sign Contract and Pay Deposit
Your contract and deposit will be sent to you digitally. A $750 non-refundable deposit is paid to hold and book your day. Be sure to read over the contract and send over any questions or clarifications you might need. I'm more than happy to explain any parts of the contract.
Step 4- Complete Questionaire
A questionnaire will be sent to you 1-3 months prior to your wedding. This gives me an idea of your wedding day plans, family relationships and what parts of the day are most important to you. Once your questionnaire is completed. I can begin drafting your timeline from there.
Step 5- Timeline Call
Your timeline draft will be shared with you and we will chat about it over the phone to get your approval. If you have an event planner they often handle crafting a timeline with you and this step would go very quickly. Most of my clients don't have event planners, and this timeline helps map out when you'd like specific areas of your day covered, where, when and specific things will take place.
Step 6- Wedding Day
It's your wedding day! On the day, I move around silently as your event happens capturing the joy, humor, excitement, and every little part that makes the story of your day. Enjoy every moment and trust the amazing team of vendors that make your day possible.
Step 7- Image Delivery
Within a week of your wedding I send over your sneak peeks. The entire gallery will be completed within 4-6 weeks from your wedding day and delivered to you digitally. You can share, post, print, and enjoy the photos how ever you'd like.
