…DIDN’T HAVE TO BE STRESSFUL?

HOW I MAKE YOUR EXPERIENCE EASY PEASY

LOCATION RECOMMENDATIONS

I’ve hiked and camped this gorgeous state since I moved here from Wisconsin 10 years ago. I have lists and lists of amazing locations to pull from to help you find your perfect ceremony spot. I customize your list based on the vibes you and your honey love (mountain view, alpine lake, etc)

VENDOR RECOMMENDATIONS

Google is endless. I’m here to help you avoid the stress of sifting through pages on the internet and thousands of hashtags on IG. I send over awesome, trustworthy vendors that are local to the area of Colorado you guys choose to get married in.

LOGISTICS

You get a personalized timeline to help us stay on track so we don’t miss any important parts of your day. I take care of the boring (but important) stuff and process any necessary permits so we can avoid the drama. You also get a 70+ page elopement planning guide to help you brainstorm and get excited!

GORGEOUS PHOTOGRAPHY

Your day is going to fly by. No seriously, when it’s all over, your elopement is going to feel like a dream. You get to be intentional and focus on your honey while I get to document your day as it unfolds. Your gallery will be full of beautiful, epic photos of you, the love of your life, and the mountains that we love.

YOU’VE FIGURED OUT THAT AN INTIMATE, INTENTIONAL  EXPERIENCE IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO

I love working with couples like you

You know that regardless of all of the opinions and how things are traditionally done, you want a day that is meaningful, stress-free, and looks like you. I can only imagine how much pressure was lifted when you finally realized (or maybe you always knew) that you wanted something different.

You love your honey more than anything and want to build a day around everything you guys love. 

You value photography and know that it can preserve your most special moments forever–you’re not here on my page because you’re just trying to check a box. You know that photography can help you remember the joy you experienced, how you two looked at and held each other, the emotions that your vows made you feel. 

My promise to you

I will do your day justice. I treat every couple’s day with the respect and care it deserves. I’m here to help you dream, plan, and have an amazing experience. I won’t let you down.

KIND WORDS FROM HAPPY COUPLES

“OUR GALLERY CAME OUT BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED AND WE FEEL SO LUCKY THAT WE HAD MIKAYLA THERE TO CAPTURE THIS SPECIAL MOMENT. “

“Where to begin? For starters, I am not one to write reviews however after the most amazing experience that my wife and I had with Mikayla I felt it was only right to share her greatness with whomever may read this and possibly be on the fence about who your photographer should be. Here’s a quick hint if you don’t want to keep reading (it is Mikayla, no doubt about it). My wife found Mikayla and her breathtaking work while looking for an elopement photographer in Colorado on Instagram. Coming to Colorado from Florida naturally we reached out to numerous elopement photographers. From the jump it was evident that Mikayla was not only passionate about finding us a perfect location but I can’t speak enough about her professionalism and constant communication throughout the whole process. My wife was very particular about what she wanted and Mikayla was able to scout and send her a number of gorgeous views to pick from. When our big day arrived, due to the fires we were not able to get to our first location. Without hesitation, Mikayla was able to pivot and help us choose another location. The second choice however was extremely windy on our big day and Mikayla suggested it would be best to go to the third location. This location ended up being the absolute most beautiful thing I have ever seen in nature. Mikayla made us feel comfortable the entire time she was taking pictures. Our gallery came out better than I could have ever imagined and we feel so lucky that we had Mikayla there to capture this special moment. To whoever may be reading this, I can assure you without hesitation that Mikayla is the best to ever do it. Let her make your forever moment perfect. I promise you, besides tying the knot, it’ll be the best decision you make.”

“WHEN I GOT MY WEDDING PHOTOS I CRIED TEARS OF JOY.”

“She is a WONDERFUL person – so sweet and fun! That’s what you want from a photographer because you’re spending so much time with them at your wedding. It was a joy being with her! My family and friends loved her! Her amazing presence put everyone at ease and she was able to capture everyone at their best! When I got my wedding photos I cried tears of joy. They are beautiful and I can’t stop looking through them! There are so many amazing photos! I would recommend Mikayla 100%! I couldn’t be happier with her work.”

-Michaela + Dustin

“I START SOBBING EVERY TIME I TRY TO FLIP THROUGH THEM.”

“[..] Leading up to the wedding, I felt like I could communicate with Mikayla freely and as a friend. If I had any questions about timelines, family photos, first look, etc., she had suggestions. She was very detail oriented and asked a lot of questions leading up to the wedding about what was important to us, to make sure that we were on the same page and that our personalities could shine through with personal touches.

In the end, Mikayla provided us with over 900 photos. A beautiful mix of posed, candid, snuggly-romantic and more. A week after receiving the photos, I am still having a hard time posting anything to social media because a) there are so many good photos, and b) I start sobbing every time I try to flip through them.

TL;DR: Working with Mikayla was a dream. If you want romantic, emotional photos with beautiful lighting, personal touches and tons of options… She is absolutely the right photographer for you.”

-Erin + Frank

“HERE’S MY ADVICE, STOP LOOKING AT OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS AND GO AHEAD AND BOOK MIKAYLA!”

“[…] Mikayla was super fast to respond and so easy-going. We set up a phone call to chat about the details and she even sent over some good trails for an elopement before I had signed a contract or given her a deposit. I already loved her work, but after the phone call I knew for sure to go with her for our elopement. We met her the evening of our elopement (which I didn’t even tell her our final location choice until that morning – I mentioned how easy-going she is right?!) and of course it was pouring rain. 

She was super optimistic and reassured me the rain would pass (we didn’t really have a plan B). Well, she was right, it did! Our entire elopement experience was amazing and we were so thankful to have Mikayla there to capture it for us. She is so kind, funny, and energetic. My husband even said working with Mikayla was “the best service industry experience he’s ever had.” 

Her turn around time for sneak peaks and the full gallery were phenomenal (under 36 hours for sneak and under 2.5 weeks for the full gallery). And of course, we loved the photos!!! My only regret is that we did not book the full day for our elopement. I really wish we had more time!”

ELOPEMENT PLANNING RESOURCES

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Yes! I compile a list of elopement locations based on how much hiking/off-roading you want to do and the types of views you love!

Absolutely!!

Yes! Check out my wedding information!

If I had a dollar for every couple who said they were awkward or not photogenic, I’d be one rich lady. I promise I will offer direction the entire time and won’t leave you panicking about what to do next! AND I WILL PROVE YOU WRONG!

With that, the majority of the day involves me documenting your connection as if I’m not even there! That’s one big reason that you should plan a day that speaks to you and your relationship! That way you look comfortable and natural in front of my camera because you’ll be doing your favorite things with your favorite person/people/doggos.

No worries at all! There are tons of locations that require little to no hiking.

You’ll get a 10-20 photo sneak peak within 48 hours and the rest of your gallery anywhere from 4-6 weeks depending on the time of year.

No.

You fill out my contact form, we chat and learn more about each other, I send a proposal, you look it over and pay the 50% retainer, and then we get to planning!

I help every couple with locations, vendors, logistics, permits, and more! Beyond that, I’m as involved as you want or need me to be! 🙂
