We specialize in full-day coverage because we believe your elopement is just as deserving (if not more so) of being captured as anyone else’s big celebration.


we have some great news for you.

The rules are there are no rules.

Whether you’ve always forged your own path instead of doing “what everyone else is doing” or you just know you don’t want a traditional wedding day experience, an elopement just might be the perfect fit for you.

We believe elopements are the best way to celebrate your love story with the most freedom and comfort while staying completely true to who you are.

#heresyoursign to have a non-traditional wedding day experience

Most weddings can have a few pretty major drawbacks, from wasteful practices, high costs, and limitations on the where and how of a couple’s wedding day experience. Not to mention the pressures from society and family, all telling you what a wedding “should” be or look like.

If instead you could lessen your impact on the environment, spend far less than the national average wedding cost ($35k+), and have the freedom to get married where you want and doing something you love together, how much more excited would you be when the day finally comes?

Elopement vs. Wedding: Which is Right for You?

our favorite thing about elopements:
nothing’s off limits

When you decide to elope, you get at the heart of what a wedding day can be. You’re free to choose where you say your vows, what activities you do together, and all the other details that allow you to be authentically you on one of the best days of your lives.

We help couples get creative and think outside of the box when it comes to planning their elopement day. Whether you want to say your vows on a boat with just the two of you present, celebrate with your family at a rental home in a scenic place, or dream up something completely unique, we’re here to support you and make your vision a reality.

what’s included in all of our packages

    We start with a consultation call to get to know the two of you better, and after we get a date on the calendar, we work with you to create a location guide designed with you and your unique day in mind.
  • Access to our elopement planning guide.
    We’ve made this 80+ page elopement guide complete with everything from ways to include family (even if they aren’t invited) and clothing inspiration, to ceremony and activity ideas, vendor recommendations, tips for lodging/travel, and a whole lot more — exclusively for Skyewater couples.

  • Unlimited planning calls.
    From the time you book until the time your day arrives, we mean it when we say we are here for you every step of the way.

And we promise, there are no “stupid questions.”

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.
Kaylee + Kagen


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!


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!

answers to common questions

This is a great question for our initial phone call, since we can help guide you once we know more about where you want to go, how many guests you’ll bring (if any), and/or any other activities you want to do during your day. Typically, many of our couples start with six or eight hours, and you can always add on additional time after booking.

The best time to book our team for your big day is as soon as you have a date or general timeframe in mind. We often get booked anywhere between 3-12 months out, especially for popular dates during summer and fall.

Absolutely. While many of the more secluded locations offer privacy for those willing to hike a few miles or more, there are dozens of easy-to-access locations across the U.S. that still make for fantastic backdrops. However, the easier spot it is to access, the more crowded it is likely to be. This is why we highly recommend that most of our couples elope on weekdays and/or early mornings if possible. And in case it helps, you can always opt for something else to help you get to a more private location (think: boat, plane, helicopter, 4×4 vehicle, etc.).

Of course! If you have more than 8-10 people in your group, we do require some form of reserved space somewhere, whether that be a venue, a rental home, national/state/city park, etc. We can also help you find dog-friendly locations, too!
