Who says you have to be young, or white, or straight to elope?

When you choose to elope, you’re choosing to get married free of society’s wedding day expectations. So
go wild! Choose to spend the entire day in your favorite place, with your favorite person. Wear a fancy
outfit, or wear your hiking boots. Invite your dog instead of your mom’s second cousin. Share your first
kiss under the stars instead of under an altar. Commit to only the things that have real meaning to you,
and know that I'll be here to help make it happen.

INQUIRE ABOUT YOUR ELOPEMENT

“She made the whole process fun, easy, relaxed,
and we ended up with the most beautiful and
natural p ictures. 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.”

THE ELOPEMENT PROCESS

BONDING

You reach out and we’ll start getting to
know each other right away. I want to
know about your favorite places and
favorite people to help you design a day
you’ll never forget. You’ll make our
partnership official by signing my contract
and paying a retainer. Shortly after, you’ll
get some welcome goodies in the mail,
including an elopement planning guide
and a Leave No Trace guide.

PLANNING

Elopements take just as much planning as
traditional weddings — sometimes more!
Let me do some of the legwork for you by
scouting possible locations, researching
what permits you’ll need, and sending a
packing list. We’ll work together
throughout your planning phase to make
sure you’ll have the true-to-you wedding
experience you’re dreaming of.

ADVENTURING

Put your hiking boots on — it’s your big
day! We’ll follow the custom timeline I
made for you as a loose guide, letting the
day unfold naturally so you can stay
immersed in your experience with each
other. I’ll bring an emergency kit filled
with warm layers and first aid to make sure
our adventure is as smooth as possible.

DELIVERY

You’ll receive sneak preview images within
a week of our adventure, and the full
gallery within 6 – 8 weeks. (Though, let’s
be honest — I often deliver much quicker
because I’m so excited to share your
photos with you!) 

Meet Nadia

SHE/HER

MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

I’m Nadia (she/her), and I do wedding photography differently. I’d rather step
out in hiking boots than high heels. I’m more comfortable wearing mud than
makeup. And I’ve always felt more of a kinship with the platinum than the
golden rule, because treating you how you want to be treated is so much more
important than what I want.

ANY QUESTIONS?

where do you travel?

+

I offer elopement photography packages within the Pacific Northwest (anywhere in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho), and the greater Cascadia region (northern California and western Montana). The NorCal/MT Elopement Package includes travel to California destinations from San Jose, north, and Montana destinations from Bozeman, west. Travel to all of these places is included in your package fees.

<< GO BACK

ANY QUESTIONS?

how does location scouting work?

+

We’ll discuss the kinds of locations you’d like to get married in (or if you have a specific location in mind) during our early conversations. Then I’ll get to work researching places we can visit, trails we can hike, and more. If your location is in the PNW, I’ll likely travel there (or will have traveled there previously) to scout. If your location is outside of the PNW (including California or Montana), I’ll do intensive virtual scouting and call on my experiences visiting the region previously to prepare. Both processes are rigorous.

<< GO BACK

ANY QUESTIONS?

tell me more about permitting.

+

Depending on the destination you’re interested in, there may be different rules about where you can and can’t get married, hike, have a photographer, and other details. This comes as a surprise to a lot of my clients, which is why I’m happy to help you research the permitting needs in your specific elopement location. While it’s my pleasure to be a source of information for you, please remember that the responsibility of getting the correct permits is up to you.

<< GO BACK

ANY QUESTIONS?

can you officate my wedding?

+

Yes, I am registered with the Universal Life Church to perform legal wedding ceremonies in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California, and Montana. I love offering this service because it allows you to keep your elopement intimate. You’ll exchange vows and perform any other poetic parts of the ceremony yourself or with loved ones, and from behind the camera I can chime in with the official pronouncements to make your marriage legal. Officiating is included in every elopement package.

<< GO BACK

ANY QUESTIONS?

so you work with lgbtq+ couples?

+

Absolutely. Social justice is a huge part of the Venture Ever After brand, and as a member of the LGBTQ+ community myself, I’d never dream of turning away a couple because of their identity. All people in love are welcome here.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
