plan your elopement!

Hi, I’m Emma. And I’m not just your North Cascades elopement photographer. I’m also your confidant, a fierce believer in squeezing the most out of life, your exploration comrade and support system throughout this beautiful experience. I’m a Washington native, and Seattle is my home.

The North Cascades are hands down, my *favorite* place in Washington - and that's really saying something. They don't call them the American Alps for nothing. With 360 rugged mountain views and dozens of alpine lakes, the North Cascades take the cake on wild adventure elopement backdrops. Whether it's in the National Park, or you're looking into the incredible Mount Baker area, or a forest trail you can take your pup on, I can help.

I would be honored to help you plan your North Cascades elopement - whether it's finding the perfect accommodations, a trail that has everything you want out of it, or just taking away any of the stress that comes with planning an elopement. I'm here to craft a day that is full of adventure and ease on your North Cascades elopement.

I promise to give every single client an experience that is worthy of their investment. Listening well, giving expert elopement consulting, and creating imagery that you will cherish forever are values that I uphold throughout our time together.

Respect the outdoors so that others and ourselves can enjoy outdoor recreation for the years to come. I ask all clients to sign off on Leave No Trace principles (respecting the outdoors and leaving nothing behind) in our contract together.

All are welcomed, celebrated, and respected here. I believe that marriage and the outdoors are for everybody regardless of race, orientation, gender expression or physical ability.


you can count on.
