Bend Oregon Elopement and Small Wedding Photographer and Locations

Since I moved my photography business to Central Oregon, I have had the privilege of photographing a lot of beautiful elopements. They’re so much fun. It’s so fun in those sacred moments to get the bride and groom set in front of a picturesque scene, knowing the result will be stunning. I never used to consider myself an elopement photographer. But, I’ve grown to love it. It’s been a blast connecting with these adventurous couples and finding the perfect locations for them to say, “I do!” I count it a privilege to be a witness as a Bend, Oregon Elopement Photographer. These occasions are meaningful and life-changing.  The bride and groom set against breathtaking landscapes or rugged terrain. And the result, a vision through my lens.

Elopements of all sorts seem extra special. From spontaneous to planned out, each ends in a beautiful union. I love the intimate settings with just the bride or groom or a small crew along. Couples who elope often have a bold spirit about them. It’s so fun to be along for the ride. Their love is full of spunk and they’re ready to get this matrimonial life started as soon as possible. Elopements I’ve shot have reflected the individuals from wardrobe to decor in such stunning ways. Personalities shine in these unique nuptials 

As a Bend, Oregon Elopement Photographer, these shoots keep popping up on my schedule. As a result, I’ve learned a few tricks I’d love to share. Connect with me so you can get started on the elopement journey. I’m so glad I get to be a part of these deeply personal, meaningful occasions.  Below you can view a few of my favorite elopement destinations in or near beautiful Bend. Connect with me anytime if you are interested in scheduling your elopement.
