the adventure elopement experience
You deserve more than just a day to remember
You deserve an experience to relive
It's because once the day is over, what you’re left with is your memories.
You deserve to look back on your wedding day and remember every single feeling you felt, every glance, every touch, the thrill of it all and and every second as if it happened yesterday.
You deserve to experience something that is a genuine, honest and true reflection of your relationship.
You deserve to be free of the peer pressure & stress that come with traditional weddings.
You deserve to celebrate intimate and not have to worry about planning a party thats for everyone else.
Because at the end of it all, you deserve an unforgettable experience that you can forever look back on and say “that was SO US”.
what does it mean to
to celebrate your love in an intimate & intentional way that is an authentic reflection of your relationship while focusing on the things that you value most.
Choose an intimate wedding celebration that puts your love first
This is your opportunity to create the wedding you've always known you were meant to have, one where you can actually feel like yourself. This is your chance to throw outdated traditions out the window, because your values are unique, and you need a day that reflects that.
You know that feeling when you’re riding shotgun with the windows down, eyes closed, music playing, feeling the breeze on your face, without a care in the world and think at that very moment, “life couldn’t get better than this”?
This is the type of feeling you deserve for your wedding day: a fully present, stress-free, unforgettable experience. Elopements allow you to celebrate your love, in the most genuine and honest way possible. It gives you an opportunity to be present & take in each and every moment and I think that's pretty damn magical.
Focus on the things you value most.
Feel empowered to truly be yourself.
Ditch the stress & pressure from others.
Read your vows in an incredible location.
Put the focus back on your connection.
Be fully present with one another without distractions.
Create a day that is a true reflection of your relationship.
Your elopement can be anything you want it to be. It's less about the material things and the show and more about the experience. It could be the two of you, or perhaps include a handful of your closest loved ones. It's an intentional, intimate celebration of your commitment to one another, in a way that feels authentic and genuine, while being a reflection of your relationship.
We'll adventure to your dream location perhaps it's the mountains, ocean, glaciers, or forest.. no matter where you want to elope, we'll find the perfect location for you to read your vows and create an itinerary that allows you to explore the surrounding landscape so you sit back & enjoy the experience.
You could start your day at an airbnb, camping, or a hotel, you could incorporate new traditions that you value into your ceremony, you could soak in the hot springs or enjoy a first dance around the campfire as the sparks twinkle in the night.
The possibilities for your elopement are endless, and I'm here to help you bring your vision to life.
get to know your adventure elopement expert
Hi I'm Oshen! An Oregon & Iceland elopement photographer who's here to empower, inspire and educate couples on all the possibilities for creating a wedding day that truly reflects them. I believe every couple deserves to celebrate their love in a way that feels like home.
When I'm not capturing your story, I'm likely binge watching Netflix, thrifting, exploring the city with my Partner, eating some bomb charcuterie or DIYing my house. I have a slight addiction to houseplants (thanks to the pandemic), a love for trying new foods, and exploring the outdoors.
