What’s 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! I’m here to help you every step of the way and offer my expert advice to help you celebrate in a way that’s the most meaningful to you.

this is YOUR DAY


Spend your wedding day doing the things you love together.  Hire a 5-star chef to prepare an intimate dinner for two on the beach in Mexico after you say “I Do”. 

Enjoy a beautiful hike along the Lake Tahoe Rim trail and exchange vows with the most scenic 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, fun, art-focused way. 

Should You Elope?

In my many years of experience, I’ve learned that a lot couples don’t feel truly aligned with the idea of a big traditional wedding. Eloping is a great way to simplify your wedding experience and bring it down to the basics of your relationship and personal values. I’m here to guide and assist you in the process of planning an elopement experience that’ll feel like a piece of cake to plan and capture the absolute magic that is your elopement day.

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

Mia is an incredibly talented artist, and I was so excited to work with her. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable throughout the entire 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 other suggestions. She captured our special day beautifully and created a gorgeous album that we will cherish for a lifetime.

She is so easy going and made every step of the process fun and easy! She captures you naturally instead of setting up pose after pose, although she does offer guidance. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better experience, and definitely recommend Mia!

Within minutes of meeting Mia we knew she'd be our wedding photographer and we couldn't be happier with our choice. She is highly professional, energetic, engaging, and thoughtful. Photos were well thought out so the process was smooth and added to the experience rather than distracting from it. Mia made it fun. We highly recommend her - you won't be disappointed!

every booking plants a tree

I know 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.
