There's a lot about the wedding industry that I don't like. The expectations and rules. The environmental waste. Having to say some of the most precious words you'll ever say in front of 100+ people half of which you don't even know. The weird traditions, ie the garter toss. (Seriously what the hell is that about?) 

But the thing I like the LEAST is how it makes couples feel. Most people I talk to tell me they couldn't wait for it to be over, and that list includes me. 

I had a traditional wedding and I regret it. (The wedding, not the husband - he's great!) But the stress, the bridges burned, the constant unsolicited opinions about the 'right way' to do things, it wasn't worth it.

I don't want that for you. 

At the end of the day, your wedding day should not be full of stress, drama, pressure or judgment. It should not be guided by societies arbitrary standards or traditions that don't mean anything to you.

And look, I'm not anti-wedding, I'm just anti-anything that doesn't make you happy or makes you feel un-you. There are people who have a big wedding and love it! That's awesome, but to use my current favorite mantra: "Good for them, not for me."

The best thing about elopements is that there are no rules. You can make decisions based on what is meaningful and important to you. Invite your very closest people for a micro-wedding or plan a just us elopement. Have a first dance or not. It's up to you. 

I could go on, but I'll get to the point,

I'm a very straightforward person, so let's just cut to the chase. I've never really been on board with society's rules & traditions. Just because we've done it "this way" for 100's of years doesn't mean it's meaningful for everyone. 

This is where elopements (and micro-weddings) come in: there are no rules.  YOU get to decide what's meaningful to YOU. 

IT'S OK TO DO YOU. Heck, of all the days you have on earth, you should be able to Do YOU the most on the day you vow your life to someone else.

Let's free you from the stress. The pressure. The enormous bar bill. And the overpriced mediocre venues. The world is your venue now. 

Sound good? Great. Cheers to THAT.

MORE THAN ANYTHING, i love helping COUPLES find freedom from the worlds expectations and feel empowered to do what MEAns something to them inStead.

"If I had to describe Jayne in 3 words, it'd be: charismatic, incredible, and talented. Cannot recommend her enough.

"Jayne had an introduction call with us and worked through our continuously changing ideas and locations. We settled on what we thought was our elopement location. Only to realize it didn't quite work. Jayne was considerate, flexible, and communicative with us. Jayne planned out the perfect hike in a new location, sent over all of the documentation for my Type A self to feel secure and excited, and walked us through everything.

Jayne met us at 3am at our hiking spot, prepared and ready to go. She even brought some of the things she instructed us to bring, like a bluetooth speaker. (thank you, you're an angel!) We both felt super comfortable being shot by Jayne, and her charisma made it all the more fun and enjoyable. She's the right amount of lively and laid back.

We got our sneak peek back very quickly and it was FULL of incredible photos I will cherish forever. Honestly, I've worked with friends of mine who are well known photographers, and Jayne's talent surpassed those photos. I was astonished at how well they turned out.

Jayne continued to overdeliver, sharing the full set of photos, beautifully edited, with us far before the "contracted deadline."

There were moments she captured that I never saw in real life, like my father in law wearing a fun garment and being silly, that I was so grateful were memorialized in beautiful photography. All of the details were snapped in photographs that I love."
