Imagine Elopements

your wedding day on your terms, full of love, fun, and beautiful memories.

an elopement experience for risk takers and dreamers

What is an elopement?

A minimalist wedding experience full of soul enriching moments to celebrate the two of you.  Your elopement doesn’t have to trade in beauty, artistry, and luxury for ease.  You define the way you want to exchange vows with all the love in a breathtaking location that is the culmination of all your wedding dreams without the pressure of exterior demands.

If this sounds like you, then you’re in the right place!

Why Elope?

Many couples don’t feel truly aligned with the pressures of a big traditional wedding. And that’s ok! Eloping is a great way to take back your day and make it truly about you and the decision to spend the rest of your lives together. I’m here to empower couples to make their own decisions and spend the day doing only the things they care about and none that they don’t. Eloping is a great way to shake off the expectations of others and do your own damn thing. I’m here to help!

Picking a photographer was one of the most nerve wracking parts of wedding planning for me. There are so many options out there, and you really want to make sure you have the best of the best to capture every amazing moment of your big day. Mia was just that, and nothing short of spectacular. She is very knowledgeable and has an artistic eye that wowed both my husband and I. We got so many compliments on our wedding photos. From her communication to her creativity to her bubbly personality.. I cannot say enough good things about Mia. She went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our photos. We were so lucky to have her as our photographer!!!

The second I got engaged, I knew who I wanted my wedding photographer to be.

Mia is an incredibly talented artist, and I was so excited to work with her. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable through the whole process. I had very specific shots that I wanted to get on our wedding day, and she made every single one happen, as well as offering us other suggestions. She captured our special day beautifully and created a gorgeous album that we will cherish for a lifetime.

intimate wedding couple's review for Imagine Elopements by Emma
We are so glad we found Mia and chose to work with her!

She is so easy going and made every step of the process easy and fun! She was always available and her website was easy to use to see photos, make payments and access documents. She let us choose the locations and even did a bit of running around with us to catch the sunset! She captures you naturally as opposed to setting up pose after pose, although she does give some guidance. The whole process was fun! Prior to our wedding day, Mia walked us through a timeline so we knew where she would be throughout the day. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better experience, and definitely recommend Mia!

We found Mia via referral and within minutes of meeting her knew we wanted her to take our wedding photos, and we couldn't be happier with our choice. She is highly professional, energetic, engaging, and thoughtful. Photos taken day-of were well thought out so the process was smooth and added to the experience rather than distracting from it - Mia made it fun. I highly recommend her - you won't be disappointed.

Spend your wedding day doing the things you love together.  Hire a 5-star chef to prepare an intimate dinner for two on a beach in Mexico after you say “I Do”.  Enjoy a beautiful hike along the Tahoe Rim trail and exchange vows with the most serene views.   Shake off the pressure of traditions and expectations to enjoy every minute of your wedding day on your own terms.  I’ll be there to capture every detail and connection in a genuine, art-focused, and fun way.

Your love is full of depth and meaning.  Leaving a legacy beyond your wedding day through sustainability, connection, and kindness is an important pillar in your relationship.  In honor of your wedding, we plant two trees for every couple we work with to help restore fire devastation and combat the increase of co2 in the atmosphere. Each couple receives lifetime photo updates and a personalized certificate with your names & grove location of those trees.
