elopement photography + videography

in Colorado, the PNW, and beyond

creating authentic wedding day experiences with the one you love in a place you'll never forget

water is the source of life,

but love is what makes it worth living

At Skyewater Photo + Film, we believe the great outdoors is the best place to start your marriage.

There’s just something pretty amazing about exploring new places together — learning about new cultures, tasting local cuisine, or seeing wildlife you’ve never seen before and landscapes you didn’t know existed.

If you’re dreaming of a way to combine your love for your life partner with your love for travel and adventure, we’re here to help make the process easy and exciting.

a meaningful + stress-free experience

Whether you’re planning an intimate elopement just the two of you or you’re choosing to celebrate with your closest friends and family in a scenic destination, we want to capture a wedding that speaks to who you are in the most authentic, spirited, and beautiful way possible.

We’re also not your typical photo and video team: we’re dedicated to offering love and support to ease the overwhelm, insight and advice on custom location and timeline options, and a relaxing, joyful approach to make your wedding day unforgettable.

If you’re looking for permission to do away with traditional norms and celebrate in a way that feels authentic for you, we’re here to tell you: “You deserve it.”

planning assistance

We aim to make the planning process simple by providing insight on a variety of logistics, like vendor recommendations, locations for your ceremony, and custom day-of timelines.

reviews from past elopements



My husband and I wanted two things for our elopement: to create an intimate, unique ceremony in breathtaking scenery and a professional wedding photographer to capture it. We found both of those with Kaitlyn. From the start she made the entire process stress-free and fun. We had the best time, in the best place, with the best photographer.

It was so comfortable talking to Kaitlyn that I knew working with her would be the same. She made us feel like we could do whatever our hearts’ desired. The big day comes and working with her wasn’t even like working. It was like hanging out with a friend who just so happened to be taking our pictures! We shared some mimosas and laughs and made it a day that I really and truly loved every second of! We said that the pictures wouldn’t do the scenery or wedding day justice but the pictures are UNREAL!

– Megan + Todd



Kaitlyn was phenomenal! She was so personable and the pictures and video were better than we could’ve imagined – so creative and truly captured all the emotions of our special day! She also was great at communicating, which took some of the stress off trying to plan an elopement/destination wedding!
