Meet Vivian Darst!


Hi! I am Vivian!

Messy hair, dog fur, big smiles, and ready to capture what your love feels like in wild places.

If that description didn’t tell you all about me then I don’t know what will haha. Joking aside, my name is Vivian. I’m an Australian living in Colorful Colorado since 2017. I am an avid hiker, rock climber, mountain biker, stand up paddle boarder, skier, and dog lover. I am always out adventuring with my two Australian Shepherd pups.

I decided to dedicate my life to capturing what your love feels like in wild places. I am so blessed to be able to create your love in tangible form. I want your photos to tell your authentic love story and for you to be transported back to that very special moment. That is some powerful shit.

Alex, my one and only, and I eloped because we both never wanted the big traditional wedding. We both love adventuring together. We believe in experiences over things. We wanted to create memorable memories in the outdoors for our wedding day so a hiking elopement resonated with our souls.

This is one of the biggest whys I only photograph elopements.

I know what it’s like to want an intentional experience. The deep gut feeling of wanting your marriage to start on the right foot by saying your vows in a safe, stress free, and in a way that resonates with your wedding vision!

I got you.

Let’s create a safe place for you to have the wedding you wildly want!
