Wedding planning got you stressed? Trust me, I know the feeling! Luckily I have the perfect antidote, made with atmospheric authenticity and raw unscripted emotion, all grounded in your love story. Adventure weddings and intimate gatherings are a breath of fresh air in the wedding planning fog.
You want to remember all the big moments but those small fleeting moments too. The ones that don’t come to the front of your mind so quickly. Of course, you’re going to remember putting a ring on each other’s finger and your first kiss, but will you remember how your partner looked at you throughout the day? Or those full belly laugh moments that made you struggle for breath? Are you going to remember every little detail of the best day of your life? Well, photography does. This is what truly authentic and artful imagery does, it’s a portal back to that exact moment. Whether you are looking back five or fifty years from now, I want to remember it all. You deserve to have your day documented with all the raw unscripted love that you share for each other.
This ain’t an all-day photoshoot, I’m not here to get you to grin at a camera all day long, that would suck. I’m here to capture all the natural and organic moments of a beautiful day filled with things you two love to do the most together. Whether that’s hiking, backpacking, camping, rock climbing, sailing, biking, exploring cities, or sipping on microbrews; whatever your heart desires. I’ll be there telling not only the story of your day but the story of the love you share and your entire journey together so far.
The beauty of intentional & intimate weddings, whether they are a 'just us' elopement or a gathering with close friends & family. They are ever-evolving unlike weddings as you know them, which are stuck in outdated traditions. Adventure weddings & elopements allow you and your partner the space to make a commitment to each other without catering to anyone but yourselves. This style of wedding is about true, unabashed love that you just want to shout from the mountain tops!
Okay, so here’s the twitter version. I’m a Washington-based elopement photographer who specializes in highlighting the little things that get steamrolled during traditional weddings. I adore helping my couples really connect back to their authentic selves and focus more on them, their person, and the adventure they're embarking on by opting for something smaller and more intimate. But smaller doesn't mean it should be any less memorable, breathtaking or intimate.
When I'm not working with awesome couples, I'm on life’s wild adventures armed with a few cameras, an untameable sense of adventure, a pack of equally untameable dogs and of course, my tame husband.
Molly was SO amazing to work with and was there every step of the way for our elopement. We both are camera shy and Molly made us feel so comfortable and the photos are more than anything we expected. She is extremely talented and knowledgable about her work and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to spend one of the most meaningful days of our lives with.
THIS is how weddings should be done. Not only did Molly capture our day perfectly, but she immediately felt like another friend that was there for the celebration! She was fun, personable and made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. Molly was great at scouting locations, and had a backup plan for when we didn't have the weather we anticipated for our hiking elopement. I would work with Molly again in a heartbeat. She also gets +10 points for being a dog person :)
