Best of 2023

2023 was truly a special year.

In 2023, we traveled all over the United States meeting incredible couples and capturing elopements in beautiful places. Jake and I never take for granted being able to run this amazing business together, and as we reflect back on this year, we feel especially grateful to all of you. Every couple, friend, family member, and supporter who has been with us each step of the way. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to run this business that we love. We’re truly grateful for all of you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

This year, I also created new business coaching offers for photographers, and I created new free trainings. You can check out my education for photographers here!


  • 18 elopements captured
  • 2 couples sessions captured
  • Over 23,500 miles traveled
  • 53,956 photos taken
  • Over 25 miles hiked


2023 was an amazing year, and I’m so excited to see what 2024 will bring! We will be traveling to even more amazing locations and photographing incredible couples.

In order of their date, below are a few of my favorite photos from each shoot and elopement we captured during 2023! If you’d like to see more, the header of each section will take you to the blog or Instagram post from these elopements and sessions.
