ADVENTURE ELOPEMENTS

WASHINGTON intimate weddings + 

Elopement photography is more than hiring a photographer to capture pretty photos of your ceremony. When you decide to forge your own path and plan an adventurous wedding? You need someone to come alongside you and create a step-by-step plan so that your day is truly intentional, low key, and a dream come true.

That’s where I come in! With a love for adventure paired with mean organizational skills, an unmatched capacity to plan for the unexpected, and consistency in my imagery (rain or shine)...I’m the girl you want with you as you promise your vows on that mountain top. I’m your timeline keeper, problem-solver, hair tamer, water (or rum) runner. I’m the person who wipes sand off your feet when it’s stuck in your wedding shoes, fixes your makeup and bustles your dress, but most importantly, I’m the one you’re entrusting to to document your day in a way that feels true to who you are. 

Just like you, I’m in it for the in-between moments, stolen glances, wholehearted laughs, and epic views. My goal is to capture all the raw and authentic memories that you’ll treasure while helping you savor your wedding day SO deeply that you completely forget you’re in front of the camera.

No matter how big or small, your wedding day is meaningful & I’m here to make sure you can relive it again and again. 

You can elope with ease, confidence, and authenticity. I’ll be your guide. 

So how does this work?

Ditch the wedding planning stress, here’s how I make the process effortless.

First up, contact me! Having a general timeframe and location can be helpful but don’t worry if you’re still in the dream phase. We’ll set up a time to connect and go over your vision for your day- I’ll give you some of my best tips on how to start planning your best adventure yet. 

Ready to book? We’ll finalize your date and I’ll send over a contract to officially welcome you to the MMP family! You’ll receive access to your personal client portal and exclusive elopement planning resources. I’m all about making things simple so you’ll receive step-by-step details, answers to frequently asked questions, and fun ways to make your day entirely unique.

Once you’re feeling a little more established in the location and vibe for your wedding day, we’ll hop on a video chat to reconnect and walk through all your ideas as well as the logistics. You’ll walk away from our time together feeling confident in your wedding plans (and so excited for the big day to get here).

After our Planning Session, I’ll send over any additional resources, to-do items, and logistics for your day including a Custom Elopement Plan and Plan B for inclement weather. The goal is to think through all the details up front so when it comes to your wedding day, it’s completely stress free and allows you to just enjoy each moment as it comes. 

enjoy your wedding day

Heck yes it’s here! The best day ever! You’ve gone through all the research and logistics, now it’s time to enjoy your getaway and have the intimate, down-to-earth adventure you’ve been dreaming of. I’m so excited to guide you along and capture your day. 

relive your memories

After your day has flown by I’ll send you some previews of your images and within 4-6 weeks your entire gallery will be delivered! I aim to tell the entire story of your day so you and your loved ones (whether they were present or not) can fully relive how each moment felt and the epic landscape that surrounded it.

Our experience working with Megan was a dream! I’m from out of state so when I began the search for an elopement photographer from Washington I wasn’t sure where to start. I stumbled upon her website and fell in love with the beautiful photos she had captured of previous elopements and weddings and decided to book Megan. She was so helpful through the whole planning process. From FaceTiming me, answering all my questions, giving location ideas, weather forecasts, and down to the most intricate details, Megan knows her stuff!!! After our experience, I can’t imagine working with anyone else on my wedding day! It was pouring down rain the majority of the day and our photos still turned out perfect! She’s so professional, kind and will truly give you the best wedding photos possible! She’s amazing! - Kayla S.

Megan photographed our destination Hawaiian elopement. The pictures were TO. DIE. FOR. Megan has a gift of using the natural light and scenery to create the dreamiest pictures you’ll ever see. She made my husband and I feel very at ease in front of the camera with her fun personality, which comes across as genuine laughter and smiles in our pictures. She was also very organized with our timeline, kept everyone on track, and created a stress-free day. I would hire Megan for any future photography in a heartbeat.

It is evident from Megan’s portfolio that she is an incredibly talented photographer and as such, having Megan capture our Mt. Rainier elopement was a no brainer. Megan was not only our photographer who gave us stunning photos, but she also acted as our coordinator. She helped us through the permitting process and coordinated timing and location with us and our officiant. We simply had to show up. Megan made us laugh and feel comfortable in front of the camera. We couldn’t be happier with our photos. Thank you, Megan for everything!

I could write a novel about Megan and her incredible skills, but basically, my husband and I loved working with her! The engagement session really helped us develop a relationship with her before our wedding. She also make us feel very comfortable throughout our shoot and our wedding day. Megan was always very professional, yet personable, letting her own fun personality bring ease to the day. This woman knows her stuff and we cannot support her enough. After our wedding my father took time to mention how much he admired her work ethic. Did I mention she was almost 9 month pregnant at the time? It didn't slow her down at all. She truly impressed everyone. All our family and friends cannot stop commenting on our photos. They're simply beautiful.

Whether you’re choosing an exciting destination to run off and get married at, relocating to a new area or simply traveling back to your hometown, I would be so honored and more than thrilled to travel and capture your special day. I'll work with you to determine the best package for your needs. We often create custom packages for our Destination couples. Destination weddings include a personalized travel quote - just to strictly cover a direct reimbursement of travel expenses. There is no cost associated with my travel time as documenting love stories in different locations is a passion of mine. The biggest questions I get: What do the travel costs include and how do the logistics work? 


Travel Details : 
+ Airfare for Megan - I’ll book at a peak time to get the best rates. 
+ Airfare for a second photographer (optional). If you choose to have a second shooter, I can bring along one of my trusted associates with just the additional cost of their airfare OR I can find someone experienced and local to the venue to work with me. Your timeline will be slightly adjusted based on if the second shooter is someone who I have previously worked with. This decision is completely up to you!
+ 2-3 nights lodging. Three nights are only required if flight times are not available early enough to be present at requested rehearsal dinners.
+ Transportation - rental car + incidentals
Logistics : I'll do a little research and send you a ‘generous’ travel quote. Once the ideal booking time rolls around, I’ll take care of all reservations and update your invoice as I do - hopefully knocking off a few of those dollars. All that is required is a direct reimbursement. If you have group lodging or have rented out a facility, I’m happy to stay anywhere you would feel comfortable staying yourself and being one of the fam!
