it gives you the chance to focus on everything you want and nothing you don't.

There are no rules to follow for your elopement or obligations to abide by. You don't have to hike 5 miles or base-jump off a cliff if that's not your thing (unless you're into that kind of thing).

Every relationship is different which is why you deserve options for your day. There's no preselected vendors, locations, aesthetic or any of that around here. Each elopement is handcrafted uniquely to you, for YOU. Giving you a truly one-of-a-kind & unforgettable experience.

What exactly is eloping?

a 'just us' experience that represents who you are

An elopement is an intimate type of wedding that allows you to have a 'just us' experience that truly represents your relationship, values and beliefs by focusing on everything you do want and none of the things that you don't feel are truly you.

It's about creating your own traditions by breaking the societal norm of what a wedding is supposed to be and celebrating your love in WHICHEVER way feels the most you!

Whether that be an adventure in the mountains or saying I do on a rooftop in the city. It's your day and you make the rules.

I mention a lot how I'll navigate you through your elopement, but let me break it all down for you what that truly means.

As your elopement photographer and planning expert, I'll not only take care of the logistics and tasks as I guide you on everything you need for your day. My biggest role is to be here to support you by fostering a safe space for you to feel at home.

From the moment we meet, I want you to know that YOUR why behind eloping matters. Your values matter. Your relationship matters. And your identity matters.

The way you choose to get married is a highly personal and intimate decision and I believe your elopement day should represent you 1000%.

My goal is to help get you thinking on all the ways you can create an elopement that is "just us", an experience that focuses on everything you want and nothing you don't. So let take the stress off your plate, help you navigate through it all and support & celebrate your one of a kind elopement.

about their handcrafted elopement

"Oshen was absolutely the best photographer I could ask for! My husband and I knew we didn’t want a big wedding and wanted something more intimate. But we were both really intimidated with the planning process and had no idea where to really start. I found Oshen’s instagram page randomly and instantly loved her work! Once I messaged her about our idea to elope, she sent us a very informative guide that answered all questions we had! After that, she was on top of everything. From planning, checking in, ensuring everything was arranged, to even supplying numerous recommendations for just about anything! And most importantly for me, she was very quick to adjust any last minute plans that needed to be made with ease. Oshen made us feel very comfortable and heard. I can’t recommend her enough and can confidently say we’d be happy to book with her for any future shoots!"

Oshen is INCREDIBLE!!!! Not only did our pictures turn out amazing, she helped us so much through the entire planning process (locations, "day of" schedule, finding vendors, etc). ALSO, we had to change locations 3 different times (which was so stressful) and EVERY time we asked Oshen about a change, she just replied "okay! I can make that work!" Her flexibility really helped soothe our anxiety. I cannot say enough good things about her and Josh (s/o to our amazing videographer!!!) She truly cares not just about your day, but YOU as a human. Thank you thank you thank you for being amazing!!!!

"I worked with Oshen to plan my destination wedding in California. She is an amazing planner. She recommended all our vendors and they were also all great. Oshen is great at communication… always gets back to you quickly. She also curled my bridesmaid hair and was ready to sow a dress. I got my sneak peak pictures back the next day and her work is UNREAL."
