When you make the decision to have a lifelong commitment to another person, you’re embarking on a new path in a life full of adventure. You’ve made the intentional decision to start this new journey and this BIG decision of yours deserves to be celebrated!
Your love isn’t about the material things, it’s about the connection; which is why the way you get married matters. Celebrating your marriage doesn’t have to be a big event to be meaningful.
At the very core of your relationship, your love is based on emotion. The focus of your wedding should be rooted in emotion and choosing to celebrate your marriage in an intimate way allows you to be intentional and connected. Traditional weddings will have you being pulled in every direction, following a strict schedule while trying to engage with all your guests that came to celebrate with you. Did you know most couples don’t spend more than 90 minutes together when they have traditional weddings? On a day that is created to celebrate your marriage, don’t you think you deserve a little more than that?
I believe that when celebrating your marriage, it should be 100% about you.
I'm not the type of photographer that you'll talk to only 3 times before your wedding day, or someone who's going to clock in on the dot and when our times up & dip out. It's important to me that you understand my role and what to expect when you hire me. I'm more than just a photographer. I'm your planner, travel guide & hype girl. I'll be the chameleon you need for your day, whether you want me up close or documenting your moments from afar, giving you two a truly intimate ceremony.
When we begin planning your elopement, I take my time getting to know you two as a couple and as individuals. I want to know about your values, experiences and everything that shaped you into the person you are today. Understanding my couples and their communication styles is how I best serve. We'll go over your wants and needs and build the foundation for your day to reflect exactly that.
I'll help you navigate everything from A-Z for creating the elopement of your dreams, so your day can be focused on what matters most, love.

"Oshen was an amazing photographer for my whole wedding journey! She was so creative when finding the most beautiful locations for our photoshoots. Her authentic style of photography captured the deepest emotions from my wedding. She made me feel so comfortable, relaxed, and able to enjoy every moment. So thankful for her work!"
"I can't say enough good things about our experience with Oshen! We were clueless on how to start our wedding planning. We were wanting to have an elopement so we looked into finding a elopement guide/photographer since we had heard so many great things. We found Oshen on pinterest and decided to reach out. We scheduled a phone consultation and immediately hit it off! Just from our phone call we knew she was the one for us! She is so knowledgeable and helped us really define what our dream wedding meant to us and even helped us design and create our dream elopement. She helped find vendors and the hotel for our elopement. Our day was more amazing than we could've ever imagined it would be. Oshen is truly magic at what she does and we couldn't be happier!"
"Oh Oshen🥺 we’re basically at a loss for words. Every single photo is just beautiful! The gallery has us laughing, crying, and smiling. I don’t know how you do it!! We’ll certainly cherish these forever. And all the sweet moments you captured with my mama, I just have no words for how grateful I am for those. Just thank you so so much! Please let us know where the best place to leave a review is🥰"
