The Perfect Way to make Your Wedding Day Truly Unique

What is an “elopement” and why should I consider a Michigan Elopement?

What is an elopement? That’s easy. An elopement is a wedding done “your way”. And, is often a perfect solution for those who are looking to remove all the stress and overwhelming “to-do lists” from the wedding day.

A Michigan Elopement wedding makes the day all about you and your spouse, while removing all of the stress, hustle, and bustle (no pun intended) from your big day. You can tell your love story in an intimate, one of a kind setting… the way you want it told. An elopement gives you so many more options on how your wedding day will play out. Options that would often be impossible with a “traditional” wedding.

With an elopement, you can spend the day connecting with your new spouse, and with those few people who matter most to you. Allowing you and your spouse nothing but joy and excitement on what will be one of the most important days of your life.

Is an 'Intimate Wedding' the same as an 'Elopement'?

You’ll find that the terms “Intimate Wedding” and “Elopement” mostly go hand in hand. They’re pretty interchangable. A Michigan Elopement can be simply the two of you, or you can have a few close family members or friends along for the ride.

While we only photograph Michigan Elopements with 25 or less people, we don’t focus our pricing around how many people attend your intimate wedding celebration. Our primary concern is that you’re planning on the focus of the day being solely around the two of you, and that you’re looking to have a stress-free, nature and adventure filled wedding experience. Trust us, we would love to be a part of your unique day as not only your photographers, but also your friends and guide.

How much coverage should I expect for my Michigan Elopement?

Let’s be clear right off the bat. We do not offer a typical, tiresome, staged photography session that is chock full of contrived smiles and dissatisfaction. Nope, we’re too cool for that (and you should be too!)

If you’ve seen our work anywhere, whether it be on our portfolio, blog, or social media, then you know how much we love real and genuine moments of love caught by our cameras. They’re not fake or forced poses. They’re real moments of happiness and joy. And, if we can do that for a large wedding party, with only an hour to squeeze some creativity in… Imagine what we can do with an entire day dedicated solely to you and your spouse to be!

Your elopement is a true wedding. It’s a wedding day. You deserve our complete attention. That means, you deserve more than having someone show up for a quick ceremony and a few pictures afterwards. This is the day that you’ll marry your best friend. It is the day that you’ll celebrate your anniversary on for years to come. Why should be treated less than the monumental occasion that it is? If this thought hasn’t crossed your mind, then imagine flipping through your wedding album… Would you want just a few quick photos? Or would you want the entire experience of your intimate wedding captured and told in a fun and exciting way?

What could a full day Michigan Elopement look like?

We’re sure you’re wondering exactly how an all day Michigan Elopement would work out and look like, right? Well, let us provide you an example of an Elopement that takes place in Munising, Michigan.

  • 1:00 pm –  Getting Ready Photos (One photographer with Bride, other with Groom)
  • 2:00 pm –  Leave for the first location. Horseshoe Falls for ceremony is a great option here.  
  • 3:00 pm – Spend time at the Wagner Falls scenic site for photos and adventure!
  • 4:00 pm – Spend time at Tannery Falls (This one of a kind location is also a great place for a ceremony if everyone can handle a bit of hiking.)
  • 5:00 pm – Get Dinner in town or at AirBNB (Jeff can even cook!)
  • 6:00 pm – Visit Munising Falls, one of the most beautiful and easiest falls to access in the area.
  • 7:00 pm – Explore Scott Falls and the beach across the street.
  • 8:00 pm – Stop off at Miner’s Castle for Sunset Pictures over Lake Superior
  • 9:00 pm- Check out a local Bar/Brewery/Coffee Shop in town for final celebrations & pictures

If adventuring out onto Lake Superior for a Pictured Rocks Cruise sounds more your style, a three hour block of time can be worked into your timeline to include this awesome option!
