YOUR STORY-TELLING ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

Let's be honest anybody with an iPhone can be a photographer these days... But what does it take to create an experience? A story? What about those in between moments that go unnoticed? Luckily for you, those quiet asides, inside jokes, and perfectly told love stories are what I'm best at!

let's tell your elopement story the right way,,,

Hi, I'm Jayde! The Idaho and Montana elopement photographer who believes in your dream elopement day!

I heard you are looking for the photographer of your dreams...

Yep, I'm the loud ass girl with the crazy colored hair/eyelashes, tatted up, with a little bit of a potty mouth... 

I'm also the girl who is in LOVE with adventuring in the mountains, dancing in the rain, and of course telling your love story. After 6 years in business, I've gotten PRETTY good at this story-telling thing, and your micro-wedding and elopements are my favorite stories to tell!

Jayde is the best photographer you could possibly ask for. She is just so outgoing and takes the most amazing photos. She spent two days with me and my husband for our elopement and jumping into Delta Lake in the Grand Tetons. Not only did she capture the most magical photos, she hiked 8 miles with us the next day to get us jumping into the lake and saying our private vows! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. The best photos were taken on my wedding day by her and now I get to have them forever!! <3

You aren't hiring me just to take your pictures... even though I am fucking good at that too lol! But what truly makes my work and my business different is that I am here to actually get to know you and your love story.

Yes, its cool to get those epic photos with the perfect lighting bla bla bla.... but what about the moment when your partner tucks your hair back behind your ear or the look in their eyes when they see you laughing or smiling....

Those are the moments I am an expert at creating and capturing.
