Ready to get down to the nitty gritty?

YOUR wedding experience MEANs A LOT TO YOU, AND you want to relive every moment - Your way.

You're not choosing to elope because you don't care about the significance of your marriage or wedding day... you're choosing to elope because you want an intimate, personalized, unique wedding celebration where the focus of the day is about you two becoming one. The events of your day will truly reflect who you are - tradition or not. These moments that you're able to personalize become the illustration of your genuine love and unique connection.

Whether you're envisioning a courthouse wedding or the ultimate adventure to the mountaintop, I'm not here to tell you how to elope. I'm just here to inspire you to create a day that reflects the two of you and everything you love!

Let's start with the basics. What does it mean to elope?

want your unique love and connection captured

love all things boho and vintage

are adventurous and travel-inclined

don't mind a little wind in your hair

are a lover of the details and the in-between moments

believe in an intentional wedding day that reflects who you are

love chasing sunsets and finding joy in all seasons

You're my kind of couple IF YOU...

embrace the unexpected

want a photographer who truly cares about you

don't mind getting your dress a little dirty

your love is worth the investment.

ANYONE WITH A CAMERA CAN TAKE PHOTOS, BUT I'M HERE TO BE SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST WHO WILL GUIDE AND CAPTURE YOUR DAY WITH EXPERTISE SO YOUR MINDS WILL BE AT REST. I WANT YOU TO BE ABLE TO FOCUS ON WHAT TRULY MATTERS - BEING WITH YOUR PERSON.

"Claire is the sweetest soul. She will care about your wedding as much as you do. She was patient, kind, and easy going through the entire journey. She visited our venue location close to our wedding day so she could familiarize herself with the sunset lighting and our requests for day of. She knew what we wanted before we had any clue. Claire was SO made to capture sweet moments. You HAVE to hire her!"

Claire Hunt is an amazing photographer skilled far beyond her years. She has an eye for the warm light which is what makes her photos spectacular. Also, she is funny, bright, joyful, and personable too. It's very easy to see why so many couples choose her for their wedding or couples photography sessions. She has a way with words and gets you to come out of your shell for the camera. She allowed us to be our true selves, have fun, laugh, smile and get some amazing pictures together in the Smoky Mountains. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Claire for any future photography needs. Her response time and turnaround time with the photos is also amazing. When she promises a date, she delivers on time and that is rare in the wedding industry. I wish her a long and fruitful career and I'm sure her business will thrive with all of her hard work. Don't hesitate to call her and book your session now!

Q: How many people can we invite?

A: What do you envision?! It could be just the two of you or up to 25 people of your closest people. I welcome dogs, cats, your best friends, and anyone else you just couldn't imagine your day without.

If you're envisioning more than 25 people there for you, take a look at my wedding packages here.

Q: What exactly do your travel fees cover?

A: My pricing guides includes ALL travel expenses associated. I do this to make it super easy for you. I’ve been a bride before, and so I know how crazy ridiculous planning can get. Travel is all encompassing in these packages, that way you don’t have to worry about hidden fees or planning any of my travel expenses. No matter where in the world your wedding takes place, once you book with me, you can leave it all to me to show up ready to rock on your big day!

If your elopement is not local to Colorado, then travel expenses include my roundtrip flight, hotel stay for at least 2 nights, and a rental car for transportation.

Q: What if we're not comfortable in front of the camera?

A: Lucky for you, it is my job to help you feel comfortable! My approach is all about creating meaningful memories through intentional prompts instead of cookie-cutter poses. I know you're not a cookie-cutter couple, so I strive to create images that capture who you truly are together. A majority of the couples you see all over my website have never taken professional photos before so I will help you look your absolute best.

Also, I will add that if you're worried that your lover won't be super into the photos, don't be. Every guy I've ever photographed leaves our time loving every minute of it. I will endeavor to do the same for you.

BACK TO OTHER QUESTIONS

Q: What if you've never been to our location before?

A: I am always scouting out gorgeous locations... like every day. If I'm not living in the area, I do this by utilizing multiple online resources that allow me to see a live view of the area, different blogs + websites explaining the location, outdoorsy Facebook groups for the very purpose of saving locations for the future, and more! So even if I haven't been to the area you're choosing, I have likely done extensive research on the area. I have a spreadsheet specific to each region of the U.S. including all the information I have so when it comes time to recommend places to each client, I will be prepared depending on your specific vision! If I'm new to the location you're looking into, it is included in every package for me to do all the research and guide you in selecting the best spots for photos, sharing your vows, etc. Additionally, one big reason I always schedule my flight to be there the day before your wedding is to scout in person! That way, on the day of your wedding, you're not having to wonder if we know where we're going. I'm here to guide you so you can focus on what matters most!

Q: What is the booking process?

Q: Do you have a travel schedule we can see?

A: Yes! I'm always updating my travel information on the website, so it should be accurate! If you're wondering why anyone would want to know this, it's because many times couples book sessions or their elopement with me whenever I'm in their area! There are no travel fees associated so, it's quite simply the best! Here is the travel schedule! Go ahead and inquire for specific dates!

QUESTIONS + ANSWERS

BACK TO OTHER QUESTIONS

Q: Do we have to go on a hike?

A: No! There are many locations around the world that are super easy access and still look like you hiked over 10 miles to get there. The biggest thing to consider with this is the popularity of that area and how secluded you envision your wedding day. I help with this when it comes to locations, but sometimes going the extra mile makes all the difference!

Also, you do not have to have an adventurous elopement. Downtown elopements are just as beautiful and special. Think about your vision and we will create it together.

QUESTIONS + ANSWERS

BACK TO OTHER QUESTIONS

Q: How much time do we need to hire you?

A: On our first call with each other, we will talk about everything you're envisioning for your wedding day! I will make sure that you hire me for the amount of time needed and not an hour over that! From my experience, I have found that 5 or 8 hours are the sweet spots and most of my couples hire me for one of those packages! Let me know if there's anything you want specific clarification on. I'm here to guide you!

QUESTIONS + ANSWERS

BACK TO OTHER QUESTIONS

Q: Can we still do an engagement session?

A: 100% YES! When you inquire, just let me know you want an engagement session and we will make it happen! This is truly my favorite thing before your wedding day so that we really establish a comfortability with each other!

If you want photos in a location different from where you'll elope, we will come up with some amazing options. You can always check out my travel schedule here to avoid travel fees as well!

Q: What happens if the weather is bad?

A: Let's embrace it! It makes for an amazing experience and a story to remember forever. I always carry cute, clear umbrellas with me and we will for sure come up with at least 1 backup option. I'm here to help you be prepared with choices! I encourage you to embrace it like I mentioned and I am always ready to pivot. We will get you married - no matter the weather.

QUESTIONS + ANSWERS

BACK TO OTHER QUESTIONS

Q: How many photos will we receive?

A: I typically deliver around 60-75 images per hour of shooting. Every day is unique so I don't put a minimum or maximum on your photos. It truly depends on the events you incorporate, the amount of coverage, and all of the moments that take place! I always deliver the best photos and I promise not to leave any special ones out. I have always said that I know which photos are my favorites, but you may love the ones completely opposite from me and that's what matters. So I leave it up to you to decide which photos you love most!

QUESTIONS + ANSWERS

BACK TO OTHER QUESTIONS

Q: Do you offer prints and albums?

A: 100% YES! The images we create together are not meant to stay in digital-form! It's part of my process to preserve your photos because this is your story and beginning of your legacy, my friend! Whenever your online gallery is delivered, the high quality print store is integrated there. You can purchase single prints, cards, canvases, albums, etc. from any session and your wedding. The possibilities are endless! I also offer digital gift cards so your loved ones can purchase store credit for you! For albums, we will creatively design it together and you will see a proof prior to me sending it off for printing. Let's create what you will look through on anniversaries, see on your walls, use as your guest book, and keep on your coffee table for all of your favorite people to swoon over! For more information on specific album options, inquire and we will chat about it all!

BACK TO OTHER QUESTIONS

Q: How do we know our photos are safe with you?

A: I have heard so many horror stories about photographers losing images - my friend's wedding included. I store every single photo I take at 6 different places at once, all of these hosts being totally different. For example, I take photos on 2 cards while I'm shooting, I back up all images on 2 hard drives, a server not located within my home, the cloud, and I keep the images on the original SD card until I have delivered the gallery to you! Losing your images from the most special day is not something I'm willing to leave up to chance, so I've got you here!

QUESTIONS + ANSWERS

BACK TO OTHER QUESTIONS

Q: When will we get our photos back?

A: It is of the utmost importance to me for you to have your photos back as soon as possible! I take my time on each individual image to make it as perfect as possible, it's not just a click-and-done kinda thing. So I have a turnaround time for sessions of 3-4 weeks with a sneak peek within two days from the session. For elopements, the turnaround time is 5-8 weeks depending on the season. I also send a sneak peek to you within a few days after your wedding so you can post and enjoy right away!

QUESTIONS + ANSWERS

BACK TO OTHER QUESTIONS

Q: Do you help with finding permits and vendors?

A: Yes! I am your ultimate guide when it comes to all things planning. After booking, you will receive a questionnaire to dig into the location you're envisioning. After selecting your spot from the guide, I will give you the contact information for who provides permits. For vendors, just let me know you need recommendations! Based on your location, I can send vendors for dresses, florals, catering, hair and makeup artists, rental companies, and more. I'm always connecting with people in the industry all around the world, so I continue adding to my recommendation list daily! When your day is decked out with the best people I know, it makes for really detailed photos that add so much to your entire wedding gallery!
