meet Bailee and Jake

We’re Bailee & Jake

Lovers of thrifting, Star Wars, and all things adventure.

We started our elopement photography and videography business when we realized that there were so many couples who wanted a totally different wedding experience. A wedding that is solely focused on them, one without expectations, one where they could do exactly what they wanted to do.

We felt right at home when we documented our first elopement. We get the incredible opportunity to combine our passion for the outdoors with our passion for wedding photography and videography all while getting to meet the coolest couples in the world.

Our mission is to help fun-loving and down-to-earth couples get married in a way that honors their love for the outdoors and each other.

We can’t wait to get to know you both and be a part of your wedding journey!

oh hey there, friend!



we did the big wedding

and we wish we eloped instead

Planning our big wedding was so stressful. Everyone seemed to have their own opinion about what we should do, how we should decorate, what songs we should dance to, what we should eat, etc. 

True story: Jake and I didn't even write vows to each other because we were so busy the month before our wedding focusing on decorations, flowers, linens, cake flavors, lighting, invites, travel arrangements, and making sure everyone else was happy and taken care of. Writing our vows kept getting pushed aside because we were constantly getting pulled away to take care of less important tasks that "had to get done." When it came time to say our vows, we just made them up on the spot.

We didn't know that there were other options besides the big wedding. Now that we do, we help empower couples to choose a wedding that is a perfect representation of them.

Five years later, we had an elopement-style vow renewal

"As Jake and I stood hand in hand, surrounded by jaw-dropping, glacier-carved mountains, I breathed a sigh of relief. 'This is so us.'"
- Entry from Bailee's Journal

For our fifth wedding anniversary we planned a vow renewal in Glacier National Park, a place near and dear to Bailee's heart. Bailee bought her dream wedding dress and we got ready in a tiny-house Airbnb right outside of the park and explored the area with our photographer. 

There was no stress. No pressure. No expectations. Our vow renewal was 100% focused on us and our love for each other.

The best part? We wrote vows. Real vows. Taken straight from our hearts and professed for only our ears to hear. We had the opportunity to re-create what should have been an incredibly sacred moment that we missed at our wedding. And that now means the world to us.

The only regret we have had in our relationship was that we let our wedding be about everything but us.

Our vow renewal allowed us to be completely present with each other while we celebrated our relationship. When we look back on the images from that day, we do so with so much love because it was a perfect representation of us

now, we help couples to create a wedding day that totally feels like them.

You made the brave choice to be true to who you are by eloping. We are so excited for you and we promise you won't regret it!

Choosing to elope gives you and your partner an opportunity to be completely present and 100% yourselves on one of the most important days of your lives.

At the end of the day, all that matters is that you and your partner got married in the most authentic way. Of course, the pictures and video will be incredible and tell your unique wedding story, but the most important thing to us is that, when you look back on your wedding, you do so with so much love and happiness.

Because how you get married is a big deal, and we're here to help you create a wedding day that looks and feels like you. 

No regrets. No stress.
