ADVENTURE ELOPEMENt and INTIMATE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER SERVING THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST + BEYOND

the planet

I do this work
for two reasons:

because i love people and i love THE PLANET

The People

I love all types of people, and yet all types of people are
not always celebrated in the wedding industry, or in
outdoor spaces.

F that.

To my kindred adventurous souls, to the BIPOC
community, to the disabled, to my fellow members of
the LGBTQ+ community — I’m here, welcoming you
with open arms.

You deserve an elopement experience you’ll never
forget, regardless of what you look like, how old you
are, or who you love. And I’m going to make sure you
get it. Read my diversity and inclusion policy.

OUR PLANET

I’ve always felt a deeper, more spiritual connection to the Earth. And it’s
easy to see why, living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. But even
outside the region — like in Idaho where I grew up, western Montana
where I’ve vacationed, or northern California where I’ve hiked —
Mother Nature’s gifts are everywhere.

Now, it’s my turn to pay back some of the joy our planet has given me.
I’ve invested in becoming a Leave No Trace certified photographer,
conserve energy through my personal and business choices, and
continue to lean into environmental activism.

BE PART OF A

When you love something, you support it, and I’m making that conscious business
practice. So when you book with Venture Ever After, know that your money is
going to support me as an artist, but also $200 will go to an organization that
furthers our shared sustainability and social justice values.

Bigger Cause

ORGANIZATIONS WE DONATE TO

You’ll get to choose where WE DONATE $200 when you sign:

01.

So we can continue to increase the visibility of LGBTQ+ people enjoying the outdoors.

02.

So we can teach more explorers how to
enjoy nature while also protecting it.

03.

So we can preserve the incredible Columbia
River Gorge for future generations to enjoy.

04.

So we can continue the media representation
of people of color enjoying the outdoors.

05.

So we can protect these keystone
predators and their natural habitats.

Nadia was incredible. From our very first phone call with her, she was personable, professional, and very attentive. She is very organized and really made us feel taken care of. Out of all of our vendors, she made us feel the most at ease.

We knew that she was thinking ahead about the all the little details that come up as you approach the big day. She was so genuinely excited about our wedding and getting great pictures. Nadia really knows what she is doing, she even had prompts for us during our couples photos that created really cute and candid shots, which was great for me as a camera shy person!

I have worked with numerous photographers
through my job, all of whom were great.
However, Nadia stands out - she was the best
photographer I have ever hired.

Nadia is nothing less than exceptional! If you do not use her for your
wedding, you will come to regret it!

From our initial call to post-wedding, she went above and beyond.
She is an excellent communicator, professional, a logistical wiz, and
the warmest, kindest person to work with.

There just are not enough words to possibly describe how amazing
every photo that Nadia snapped. She has mastered her craft. She has a
magical way of finding the perfect angle, lighting, and captured
moments that my husband and I will treasure forever.

The best part was the fact that it was stress free and it was a blast to hike with our two dogs while wearing a fancy dress :)

I waited entirely too long to write this - don’t sleep on Nadia! She was amazing, from the beginning to the end. She is so quick responding to anything we asked, and even after we got our photos she remains wonderful.

She made the whole process fun, easy, relaxed, and we ended up with the most beautiful and natural pictures. They came out so much better than anything I could have imagined.

I can’t recommend her enough. You should hire her immediately!

Nadia is nothing short of amazing. Professional, compassion, flexible, easy to work with, and most of all supportive.

My wife and I planned our wedding from across to country before moving to Oregon, and Nadia was there to help and support us from day one. Anything we needed she was right there, and was always willing to help in anyway she could outside of just our photography needs.

Our wedding plans fell apart just weeks before the big day due to COVID, and Nadia was right there helping to replan the whole day, and sharing her wonderful husband and doggos as our wedding witnesses and attendees.

The whole day was just perfect, and a large part of that is due to her.

Choose Nadia! Just do it - she's the best. All I know is how grateful we are that we chose her (and we say that to each other and our friends/family frequently!). Choose Nadia.

Nadia photographed our micro wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic, so she was one of only four other adults at our ceremony. She is a wonderful human who has an incredible knack for capturing all the special moments while staying out of the way of them. She added to the fun on our wedding day by just being her, and her time management and planning support were a huge stress reliever. And wow - her photos are AMAZING.

My husband and I are both perfectionistic designers with a combined 30 years of experience between us - we don't hand out aesthetic compliments unless they're well deserved. Nadia also provides super responsive customer service. I seriously don't know where she finds the time to do all she does and do it so well.
