What is a Wild & Free Elopement?

 

 

Your Wild & Free elopement experience will be designed around these 3 values:

  1. Intention | You get to choose your elopement experience, from who you bring along to how you enjoy the day, to make the most meaningful day!
  2. Nature | There’s no venue or building that can compare to the magic and wonder of mother nature. Your love story deserves the most breathtaking backdrop ever, one that can only be found outdoors.
  3. Freedom | This day should reflect the two of you, not the traditions of society. I hold space for your creativity and freedom to design an elopement day that is a true reflection of you.

A Wild & Free Elopement

is for you if…

  • You want your elopement to be raw and real--not just a quick ceremony and some posed photos
  • You want a day so carefree and full of laughter that you can’t help but love every minute of it
  • You want to have an unforgettable experience immersed in nature while reducing the environmental impact of your elopement day
  • You want a safe space to focus on what truly matters--your commitment to each other

"Joni was a breath of fresh air during my search for the right photographer."
