Don’t take my word for it. Read a review from one of my happy couples!

I have SO many good things to say about Vivian.
When we started planning our elopement, all we knew was we wanted to elope in Colorado. We had no idea where we would get married, or what activities we could do on our day. I was already feeling overwhelmed!
Vivian planned an initial phone call with me and my now husband, where she asked us questions about what we imagined for our day and what activities we liked to do. We talked about hiking and going to a brewery! We also talked about how we really wanted mountains, trees, and lakes in our pictures. Vivian suggested 3 locations where we could plan our elopement. We picked a location, and then Vivian gave us suggestions for hikes, breweries, and vendors. From that our day was planned! Vivian also created our timeline that included 2 hikes and a stop at a brewery. The majority our day was planned with little to no effort on my part.
Vivian also provides an online elopement guide. This guide was extremely helpful in making sure we had everything planned out. I referenced it many times. I specifically used the guide when purchasing hiking clothing, and I am glad I did, because we bought clothing that kept us warm and happy on our day.
Our actual elopement day was magical. I was very nervous for our initial hike, but Vivian gave me advice of how to prepare for the hike. During the actual hike, we took many breaks (which Vivian already accounted for in our timeline). Vivian did a great job of keeping us on our timeline and adjusting our timeline on the fly to give us more time at certain locations. I was so thankful to not be the timekeeper on my special day. Vivian also gave us advice on how to drive through the mountains and not destroy our car. She also gave us recommendations for additional hikes we could do while we stayed in Colorado. Vivian went above and beyond our expectations. It really felt like we spent the day with a friend who valued our interests and happiness.
We got our sneak peeks back within 2 days, and they were amazing! We cant stop staring at them. Our friends and families have given us so many compliments. They said we looked so happy in our pictures, and you could tell how beautiful Colorado is through the pictures. Vivian’s camera is AMAZING! The pictures are so detailed and the images are so clear. I cannot believe that Vivian captured our happiness and emotion of the day. We don’t have cheesy, posed wedding pictures, we have beautiful pictures that reflect what the day truly felt like.
We really feel like we have made a life long friend through this process. Vivian truly cares about your happiness and your interests. I am so thankful we had the opportunity to work with her. If you are on the fence about eloping, I HIGHLY suggest doing it AND using Vivian. Within one hour of our day, I knew we made the right decision.

Frequently Asked Questions

I eloped in 2017 so I know exactly how you are feeling. I was coming from Australia so I had no clue what it was like to elope in Colorado but I knew it was something we both wanted to do.

Now, I help couples elope in Colorado. I know the best tips and tricks because not only did I elope but I do this for a living and have helped 100+ couples elope. I live in this beautiful state so I know all the best locations.

Yes! I have hiked, backpacked, camped, rock climbed, biked, skied, stand up paddle boarded, etc my way all across Colorado. I know the trails like the back of my hand.

Whatever your vision is, I know the perfect place for you. Throw anything at me 🙂

Do you want mountain summits? wildflower meadows? aspen trees? waterfalls? pine trees? I got you.

No worries at all! It can be a little intimidating when you have a camera in front of your face but I have a calming and fun personality that will make you forget you have a camera in front of your face.

Seriously, that is one thing my couples always compliment me on! That they never felt awkward because I got you, boo. I have all the tips and tricks to get you comfortable.

I will assist you with the planning! That means, I will send you a vendor list based on the location you choose to elope. Places you want to eat, do or see in the mountain town. I will create an elopement timeline for you. I will send you companies if you are planning to book an off-roading jeep tour elopement, etc. I will send you information on the trails that you want to elope on. I will give you all the details on how to get your marriage license in Colorado.

I am not a full on planner that will book accommodation, flights, etc for you. I will assist you with everything else!

No! There are many locations that I know where you can have stunning views without the hike. If you want somewhere accessible for family and friends or you don’t want to hike then I have the locations for you. Just let me know via our zoom call!

It is not unusual for a couple to book me a year in advance because they want to make sure that I am available for their date. So you can book me a year in advance for your elopement!

Fill out my contact form with your details and your love story. I will reply within 24hrs so we can set up a zoom call. I think it’s super important you vibe with your photographer so it’s a good chance for us to get to know each other over a call. Then I will send you a contract where you will sign and a retainer where you will pay the invoice. Then I am officially booked!

Yes! I am 420 friendly. Just let me know when we chat so I can create your timeline with that idea in mind!

Yes! Your love is safe here. My nephew was part of the LGBTQIA+ community but he committed suicide when he was 17 years old because his parents had kicked him out of his home. He lived with me for a few years before he moved in with friends and tried to communicate with his parents but they didn’t budge with their opinions so he thought that was the best way out. Therefore, I make sure to let everyone know that I support all love.

The 8hr and 12hr elopement packages have print albums included. If you are looking to add a print album for your 6hr or 4hr elopement then let me know. I offer them for $1000 which includes the design, print, and shipment.

If you want your photos professionally printed then you can do that through your online gallery. It’s super easy!
