capturing and planning elopements

for intentional, earth-loving couples

North Georgia Elopement Photographer

NOT WHAT OTHERS WANT. 
Your wedding day should reflect what you and your beloved want.


Letting go of the expectations of others--or even your own expectations--is challenging at best, but on the other side of it, is home

Eloping is a coming home to yourself and your love. And, you deserve a wedding experience that feels safe, present, and entirely you. 

Let me come alongside you, and help you plan your biggest adventure yet.

A wedding experience that sits well with your heart

You always search for the deeper meaning in life, do things a little differently, and feel deeply at home in nature.

So naturally, the traditional wedding scene doesn't feel quite right to you, and you know what? That's okay. You want a different kind of wedding experience, one that is a true and bold representation of your love story--one that sings to your soul. 

 Well, wanderer, look no further. I want to empower you to have the best day ever and connect with your truest self. Are you ready?




THIS IS WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR:

Eloping with my love in Yosemite changed my life. 

We said our vows in the morning with a granite sea as our background. With 11 of our closest friends and family to witness it, we all shared happy tears, and awed at the majesty of Mother Earth. 

That day felt like a dream and entirely us, and that's exactly what it was. We sat in a meadow, hiked, and watched the most spectacular sunrise and sunset we ever laid eyes on. 

Since that experience, it's my passion and mission to empower other couples like you to make the dauntless decision to elope in nature, and to help you realize a wedding day that represents the two of you fully. 


AND, Here's a bit about my mission for couples like you

Hi, I'm Kayla.

Your North Georgia 
Elopement Photographer

specializing in intentional,
earth-friendly elopements.

And, here's a bit about my mission for couples like you:
Your elopement is not a two-hour photoshoot. For you, it's so much more.

To you, eloping no longer means getting married on a whim or in secret. It's not frivolous, quick, or shameful. Instead, you're making a choice to elope out of self-awareness because you want a day true to your love story and a day good for our amazing Earth. Eloping is a way to live your life out with intention, and avoid the set of expectations of how you should "settle down."

"When my husband and I decided to get married in just three short weeks, we were overwhelmed with trying to plan everything. We got in contact with Kayla and she was absolutely amazing from the start! I didn’t realize how little I had thought about my wedding day until Kayla, and she went above and beyond the normal duty of a photographer! She helped me plan out the day and visualize what it would look like."

"KAYLA IS ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED, KIND, AMAZING PEOPLE THAT MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE TO WORK WITH. SHE NOT ONLY HELPED US ON OUR WEDDING DAY BY PREPARING A TIME SCHEDULE FOR US, BUT SHE ALSO HELPED US PICK THE MOST BREATH-TAKING LOCATION FOR OUR “DAY AFTER” PHOTOSHOOT. THE PACKAGE WE CHOSE FIT US PERFECTLY AND LEFT NOTHING TO BE DESIRED, AND SHE DID NOT LEAVE ANYTHING OUT, DOWN TO THE LAST DETAIL."

Elope for Earth

HONOR MOTHER EARTH THE WAY
YOU HONOR YOUR BELOVED.

If you need any more reason to elope, elope because it’s kinder to our beautiful planet.

Big, traditional weddings produce hundreds of pounds of garbage, and produce TONS of carbon emissions.

Thankfully, you don’t have to be a part of that. With proper planning, you can have an earth-friendly, low-waste wedding without sacrificing what you value most on your wedding day, and that’s because you’re investing in an experience over STUFF!

A portion of each booking gets donated to one of the following non-profits of your choosing: 

GIVING BACK TO OUR PLANET

More than just beautiful photos.

My job goes beyond capturing beautiful photographs of your special day. As your elopement photographer, I’m also your planner, your location scouter, your dress fluff-er, your adventure buddy, and friend.

A photographer should capture beautiful photos, but they should also give you a stress-free, genuine experience; they should help you create a relaxing timeline of your day so you can feel present and connected. They should be a source of inspiration, knowledge, and encouragement so that you can create a celebration of love centered entirely on the two of you.

When you know that my excitement, and passion for your day matches yours, you can feel at-ease knowing that you'll be taken care of.
