the experience

WTF am i getting myself into?

i get it.  planning a whole elopement is scary, and the thought of having to get your photo taken is even scarier. which is why i am here to help you every step of the way.

we love surprises, but not when it comes to booking your elopement.

here is what the elopement process looks like from start to finish so you know exactly what to expect.

you did it! you took the leap, and sent in my inquiry form. the first step to your dream elopement is complete! you can expect an email response from me within 48 hours.

we will schedule a time where we chat all about your elopement dreams, go over pricing, and i answer any questions you have.

01. inquire


when you're ready to book with me, we will make it official by finalizing the date, signing a contract, and paying the 30% deposit. all of this is done online to make it easy for you.

planning & research

during this process we will be in continuous contact and have multiple meetings to discuss what you're dreaming up for your elopement. nothing is off limits!

i will help with the research, including giving vendor suggestions, location ideas and scouting, finalizing timeline, creating a backup plan, preparing anything needed for the big day, and providing you with all of my knowledge, advice, and tips throughout the whole process. i am always available to you when you have any questions or just need to chat. if i don't get back to you within 48 hours, you are welcome to send me a reminder message.


the big day is here! this is the day where you forget about everything else going on and spend intentional time with you, your partner, and your loved ones, if so desired. and i will be there to capture every moment of it.

photo delivery

after the day is done, you get to sit back and relax while i get busy editing your photos. you will receive your sneak peeks within 72 hours (travel permitting) and the rest of the gallery within 5 weeks of the elopement date.

your photos will be delivered in a high resolution online with unlimited downloads and views. the link will be available for you to share with all your family and friends, and you will be able to download the gallery to keep safe on your own harddrive.

Amanda was an absolute dream to work with. Her laid back demeanour put us at ease and allowed us to have fun and be ourselves. This was mine and my partners first couple shoot, so we were a tad nervous beforehand and unsure what to do once we were there. Amanda had endless prompts and ideas that made us feel comfortable and confident. We were so excited to receive our photos and absolutely loved them! This was also a great bonding experience for my partner and I as it allowed us to step outside our comfort zones together and have a few good laughs. I couldn’t recommend this experience enough. Talk about a great date night!"

what can you expect from me on the day of the elopement?

during our engagement shoot, i will be talking and interacting with you quite a bit. this is because it is most likely our first time shooting together, so my goal is for us to get to know one another and for you to become comfortable with me taking your photo. think of it like practice for your elopement.

on the day of your elopement, i will be intentional about being quieter and staying (mostly) out of your way as i snap photos of what's going on. worry not - this doesn't mean i'm having a bad time or don't want to be there! i do this to give you space on your special day for everything to unfold naturally, rather than interfering with your authentic moments. every so often, i may pipe in with a quick suggestion - this is to ensure you are getting the best possible photos of from the day.

Our experience with Amanda was awesome!! She was super organized from the beginning of planning the photoshoot to the end of receiving the pictures! She has a well detailed guide for photo shoots which is super helpful for couples/individuals who have never gotten their photos taken before! Amanda is super nice and friendly! She has great prompts to make sure that you’re smiling and having fun! The pictures look fantastic, you can tell that she puts a lot of time and effort into her pictures! Overall, it was super fun and I would definitely go back to Amanda for photos in the future!!!! 10/10!!"
