Here's what you can expect from me

I'm here to be so much more than just your elopement photographer

Planning your elopement should be fun, which is why my goal is to make this as easy and simple as possible. When you book me as your elopement photographer, you are getting so much more than JUST a photographer. As an elopement expert, I'll guide you through the process and help you plan an incredible elopement experience from start to finish.

Let's do this!

What you get with all of my elopement packages

01

A Completely Customized Experience

I want to help you plan an elopement experience that feels like YOU. My first priority when you book with me is to get to know you two, and your vision for your elopement day, so I can help bring that dream to life. Every elopement I plan is completely different from the last.

02

Unlimited Expert Guidance

I provide unlimited consultations, and planning help throughout the entire process. I'll also send you my Ultimate Elopement Planning Guide, exclusive only to my couples. This guide is 60 pages jam packed with everything you could possibly need to know to plan your elopement day.

03

Location Ideas + Permit Assistance

After getting to know you two more, and your vision for your dream experience, I will send a long list of highly researched, breathtaking elopement location options that check all the boxes of what you are looking for.

04

Vendor Recommendations

Once you have chosen your elopement location, I'll send you a list of amazing local vendors who can help bring your dream elopement to life: florists, hair & makeup artists, videographers, 4x4 rentals, private chefs etc.

05

Custom Elopement Day Timeline

I'll help you dream up some fun, unique activity ideas for your full day (or multi day) elopement experience. Once we get the basics planned, we'll put it all together and create a relaxed, stress free elopement day timeline, leaving lots of room for spontaneity!

06

Photos That Tell Your Story

Last but not least, you will walk away with the experience of a lifetime, and amazing photos to remember it all. You will get the high resolution, digital image files delivered to an online image gallery, to be downloaded, printed, shared, and cherished forever.

Here's what you can expect when it comes to the photos...

The gallery you receive from me will be so much more than just some pretty pictures. My goal is to document the story of your elopement, with photos that bring you back to the way the moment truly felt.

Don't worry, booking me as your photographer does NOT mean it's going to be an all day photoshoot with awkward smiles and stiff poses, because let's be honest - that sounds awful. I take on a documentary style approach, meaning I simply document the day as it unfolds in front of my camera, with very little interference. This is about you two having the best damn day of your lives - the amazing photos are simply the result of that.

We want to book you!

Carissa is literally the best out there and helped me have the Colorado elopement of my dreams! I reached out to Carissa only two weeks before we wanted to elope and she immediately helped me plan my wedding in such a short amount of time. She went above and beyond with finding me the perfect location, helping me plan, and everything in between. Her photographs are absolutely STUNNING and she is also the most kind and genuine person. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable and special on our wedding day and she captured our love and elopement so beautifully. I will treasure the photographs forever and I just cannot get over how amazing of a job she did! Another huge thing is she got our photographs to us SO quickly! I cannot recommend and sing her praises enough!

You might be shocked to hear this, but almost every single one of my couples says this. It's totally normal to be nervous for photos, but don't worry! My sessions are extremely relaxed, and most importantly FUN. I keep it super simple, with easy direction. I believe when you are having the best day of your lives, amazing photos are the result of that - which is why I focus so heavily on helping my couples craft an incredible experience for their day.

I always send a few sneak peek photos within a week of your elopement / session (sometimes you might even get the photos the very next day!). You will receive the full gallery of photos within 8-10 weeks, depending on the time of year, and how many hours of coverage you booked. I am a huge believer that editing is half the magic of the finished photos. Because of that I take my time with editing, so that I can perfect every single photo, while also making sure to work as hard as I can to get your photos delivered to you as fast as possible.

I deliver the final photos to an online, digital image gallery. Once I'm finished editing your photos, I'll send you a private link to access your gallery. You will be able to download the high resolution images as many times as you want, and share the link with any friends + family!

Each package I offer has a different amount of images you will receive depending on coverage times, although each number listed is just a minimum. I never set a maximum amount for what I am going to deliver. I curate my galleries to include the absolute best images. I want every single image I deliver to be a work of art. For that reason, I always strive for quality of quantity, but will never leave out any photos that are important because I don't want you missing out on any special memories. I'm always happy to send over sample galleries so you can see examples! For elopements, I typically deliver between 300-600 images.

Yep! There is a print shop attached to your online image gallery, that offers super high quality prints, albums, and unique heirloom products (calendars, wall art, frames etc.). All of my clients have absolutely loved printing through the online shop. You don't have to order prints there, but it makes it super easy because everything is all in the same place!
