PNW ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER + VIDEOGRAPHER

DOCUMENTING ELOPEMENTS + DESTINATION WEDDINGS IN WASHINGTON + OREGON

TAKE A DEEP BREATH

. . . seriously.

If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed with all the options and research already, take a moment to breathe.

To just be. Because ultimately, this is also how we want you to feel on your wedding day: comfortable, relaxed, and present. We do things a little differently around here — giving you the space, time, and support to be worry-free and unapologetically yourselves.

Ready? Let’s dive in.

LOVE IS A LOT LIKE WATER

exciting, powerful, calming

At Skyewater Photo + Film, we believe that where and how you get married matters.

If a traditional wedding isn’t for you, know that you are welcome here.

Our memories are almost always tied to the places we explore and the people we love, and your wedding day is no exception. If you could go anywhere in the world with only the people you want present (even if that means just you and your person), what would that feel like?

We help couples who want to create their own path, who want to be more intentional about how they celebrate their marriage, who want to be fully present in the moment and connected to their partner.

Unscripted. Grounded. Meaningful. We promise this is going to be easier than you think.

A PURPOSEFUL + STRESS-FREE ELOPEMENT EXPERIENCE

Planning your elopement or destination wedding doesn’t have to be difficult. Let us be your calm in the storm.

Skyewater is not your typical photo + video team. We help you worry less about traditions and expectations, and focus more on being at peace with your person. We offer love and support to ease the overwhelm, insight and advice to navigate the planning process, and a relaxing — yet, joyful! — approach to make your wedding day unforgettable.

SUPPORTING LGBTQ+ AND COUPLES OF ALL DIVERSITIES

Supporting couples of all kinds, no matter who you are or who you love.

We are here to support, celebrate, and honor your unique love story with authentic + colorful photos and videos to cherish for years to come.

Inclusion and diversity are part of our core values — because we all deserve to feel comfortable being our truest selves on one of the biggest days of our lives.

GUIDANCE

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.

PHOTOGRAPHY

The goal: timeless. Our colorful and vibrant editing style stands out from the rest without being “trendy.” We’re confident you’ll love your photos decades from now.

VIDEOGRAPHY

Whether you’re looking for a beautiful highlight film that showcases your whole day or a recording of your ceremony and vows, our video services have you covered.

HEY THERE, I’M KAITLYN

Your photographer/videographer + planning assistant

An introvert at heart, I always value real connection, stories, and conversation over surface-level interaction any day of the week.

Having captured over 100 weddings and elopements on camera over the last decade, if there’s one thing I’ve realized it’s that I have a knack for being the calm, welcoming, and intuitive energy couples didn’t even realize they needed.

So, I invite you to think about what it would feel like to be fully present, unapologetically yourselves, and care-free on your wedding day instead of worrying about what everyone else wants. And take comfort in knowing you have my full support, every step of the way.

REVIEWS FROM PAST ELOPEMENTS

“THE BEST TIME”

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 Skyewater. From the start they made the entire process stress-free and fun. We had the best time, in the best place, with the best photographer.

“STUNNING”

Kaitlyn made our day absolutely perfect. The photos that we received were absolutely STUNNING! They 100% capture who Ryan and I are as a couple. We laughed, joked, cried, screamed in excitement, and just showed every possible emotion together and she managed to capture all of it. There is nothing that we feel could have been better!
ANNA + RYAN

“OUTSTANDING”

I am so glad that we stumbled across Skyewater Photo + Film! I can’t say enough about how professional and friendly the team is. The quality of work that they produce is outstanding! Turnaround time was great and we were so pleased with the results. The photos and videos will be treasured forever. I simply cannot recommend them enough!
