elopement
packages + pricing

have you ever thought ...

  • I don't like large crowds ...
  • I don't enjoy being the center of attention ...
  • I want a more intimate day with my partner ...
  • I feel unsafe around certain family members ...
  • I want something more out of the ordinary ...
  • I care about sustainability in my wedding ...
  • I would rather spend our money on an experience ...

... and felt trapped by a wedding you don't want?

Outside opinions.

Unwanted traditions.

Unrealistic expectations.

ELOPING MEANS YOU DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH ANY OF THAT!

Forget external pressures.

Ditch the old traditions.

Do what YOU want!

because you don't need your wedding to feel like a performance

and it doesn't have to.

Choosing a Montana elopement means you can have the intentional wedding day that you want, combining your love of the outdoors and each other. The only thing that matters is that the focus of the day is on you and no one else. No external pressures or opinions and no need to fear speaking your innermost thoughts and emotions with an audience around.

YOU CAN HAVE A WILDLY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE!

that's where i step in to make it happen.

For couples who value experiences over things, quality of connection over quantity of guests, and being out in open spaces instead of stuffy buildings — your wedding can be a wildly different experience! Providing couples with access to outdoor adventures that truly speak to their souls is what I pour my heart into. I want you to have the most unique wedding day that you can relive through incredible imagery for the rest of your lives together!

GET TO KNOW JESSLYN

don't take it from me!

here's what my couples have to say:

From the moment you start talking with her, you can see how genuine and caring she is. We are so over the moon that Jesslyn was a part of our day and you will be, too!

Jamie L.

She is so fun and down to earth while also being professional and talented. How she got so many amazing shots, I just don't know. She might also be a wizard.

Neil S.

Jesslyn was exactly what we wanted and more from a photographer. Professionalism, excellent communication, insightful, outgoing, friendly, warm, and much more.

Carly S.

Jesslyn is one of the kindest, most thoughtful, and knowledgeable people we found to help us plan and capture our I Do's!

what all is included?

unlimited communication

After booking, you'll get 24/7 unlimited access to all of my elopement knowledge, resources, and every tip, trick, and hack that comes with years of outdoor experience. No need to schedule an appointment!

personalized client portal

Each couple will have access to their very own Client Portal, keeping all the important documentation and communication in one, easy-to-access location. From invoices and questionnaires to helpful guides and PDFs, it's all at your fingertips!

one-on-one elopement consulting

This ain't no cookie-cutter, run-of-the-mill planning process. I send along detailed questionnaires, personalized location suggestions, customized itineraries, and back-up plans for those "just in case" moments. Rest assured you're in good hands while making your elopement dreams come true!

permitting assistance

Knowing when you need a permit, when you don't, who to contact, and how to even get one can be very confusing. Having worked with various permitting offices over the years, I'm here to help make this part of the process as stress-free as possible by getting the information you need without all the extra hassle!

local vendor recommendations

Finding that perfect vendor can be hard, and that's where I step in to help. Having worked with numerous local businesses, I can provide names and contact information to help you on the path to finding "the one"!

officiating services

As an ordained officiant, I'm able to legally marry my couples. Whether you want me to perform a small ceremony, officially announce you, or simply sign your marriage license (as an officiant or witness), I've got you covered!

your images

Every elopement comes with an online gallery of professionally edited, full-resolution images, complete with personal printing rights! From the gallery, you'll also have the ability to download and share photos worldwide, invite friends and family, and access a special online store for albums, prints, and more.

i ship for free!

So long as I am able to get to you and participate in photographing your Montana elopement via standard travel routes — commercial airline, two-wheel drive car, lodging accommodations — there are no associated travel fees. Keep in mind that things like a helicopter or 4x4 Jeep might cost extra!

This option is not for elopements, rather proposals, engagements, anniversary sessions, or "just because" — this session is perfect for smaller occasions you want to celebrate while still allowing for a little bit of exploration and adventure!

not sure what you could do with a full day?

just for a moment,

imagine this:

You get to have a relaxing morning, making breakfast together and getting ready. Your photographer shows up and the excitement of the day starts to set in! With quiet moments captured between the two of you, and all the small details you've thoughtfully chosen to include in your day, we then make our way to your ceremony location. You step out onto a rocky shoreline surrounded by mountains where you get to speak your vows to one another in complete solitude.

 

You're officially married to your best friend, and you can enjoy the rest of the day exploring and taking in beautiful scenery! We make our way to a trailhead you've chosen and hike to your favorite alpine lake, stopping along the way to admire the wildflowers and sweeping views, and to simply take it all in. Once at our destination, you enjoy a picnic lunch in the shade and toast to your future. There's no rush on this day, so you slowly mosey around the shoreline, skipping rocks and glimpsing fish, before making our way back down.

 

On our way back to town, we stop by an off-the-road waterfall where you share a dance together and maybe have a little fun splashing each other in the shallows. Once back at your cabin, a private chef has prepared you an exquisite meal to enjoy on the back deck as the sun starts to set. A campfire crackles nearby where you can cozy up together and soak in the last moments of your wedding day looking up at the stars and roasting marshmallows.

and now imagine that the whole day was captured in detail.

you deserve it

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN WE INVITE OUR FRIENDS AND/OR FAMILY?

A thousand times yes! While I do limit my guest count (20 total people), you can still include those closest to you in your elopement.

WHAT IF WE'RE CAMERA SHY?

Not to worry! Through my candid approach to photography and gentle guidance, incredible and authentic images naturally follow!

DO WE HAVE TO HIKE OR DO SUPER OUTDOORSY STUFF?

No and no — adventure is for EVERYONE! There is absolutely no need to hike or do anything big and wild. If chilling in a hammock is more your speed, that's outdoorsy, too!

CAN WE INCLUDE OUR PETS?

So long as the location(s) you've chosen allow it, most definitely!!

DO YOU ONLY PHOTOGRAPH IN MONTANA?

Short answer: No!
Long answer: I do dip outside of Montana, but only just. I travel to nearby locations in Wyoming and Idaho!

DO YOU FOLLOW LEAVE NO TRACE PRINCIPLES?

Absolutely! Making sure that we mitigate our imprint on the lands we visit is high on my priority list, and I even have a handy guide for eloping couples and how they can Leave No Trace, too!
