Your elopement should be a celebration as unique as your love story, a day filled with joy, laughter, and unforgettable memories. From the moment you say “I do” to your final portrait under the stars, it’s an occasion to cherish for a lifetime. However, planning such a special day can sometimes feel overwhelming, with countless details to consider and decisions to make.
That’s where I come in. As your elopement photographer and guide, I’m here to ensure that your journey to “I do” is as stress-free, fun, and memorable as possible. My luxury elopement packages are designed to support you every step of the way, providing you with the full assistance and resources you need to live the elopement of your dreams.
But what exactly are luxury elopement packages, and how can they enhance your elopement experience?
Luxury elopement packages go beyond traditional offerings, providing couples with extensive assistance and services to seamlessly curate their dream day. As your personal elopement guru, I handle all the details, taking the stress off your shoulders and allowing you to focus on what truly matters: authentically celebrating your love. From crafting the perfect timeline to recommending picturesque locations, securing permits, and coordinating with vendors, I ensure that every aspect of your elopement is thoughtfully planned and executed. With my guidance and expertise, you can rest assured that your elopement experience will be nothing short of epic.
Planning and organizing for your elopement can feel overwhelming, especially when it comes to deciding what to bring. From essential items like your attire and accessories to touching details that can enhance your day, such as sentimental mementos and decor, there’s a lot to remember. That’s why I provide you with a comprehensive packing list and organizational kit as part of your luxury elopement package. This detailed list covers what you’ll need for your elopement, ensuring you’re well-prepared for every moment of your special day.
But my services go beyond merely providing you with a packing list; I understand that wedding planning can be hectic, so I’m here to support you every step of the way. I’ll check in with you multiple times during the planning process to answer any questions you may have about what is needed and offer guidance on packing and preparation. And, as your elopement day approaches, I’ll touch base again to ensure you have everything you need and that nothing is overlooked. With my packing list and organizational kit, you can feel confident and relaxed, knowing that all the details have been accounted for, leaving you free to focus on celebrating your love.
Choosing the perfect location for your elopement can be a daunting task. With countless breathtaking destinations to consider, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure where to begin, especially if you are planning a destination elopement in Colorado. That’s where my experience comes in handy to alleviate stress. As part of your luxury elopement package, I provide you with curated location guides and recommendations tailored to your vision as a couple.
Gone are the days of spending endless hours scouring the internet for the ideal spot and making decisions based off of website reviews. Instead, I come to you with a carefully curated list of amazing elopement locations, taking into account your personal preferences and desires for your special day. Whether you envision exchanging vows near a tranquil lake, amidst towering mountains, in the shadow of giant red rocks, or having a forest elopement, I’ve got you covered. Additionally, I can help you discover an Airbnb or VRBO that aligns perfectly with your aesthetic and provides the space you need for your elopement.
With my guidance and local experience, you can rest assured that your elopement location will be nothing short of spectacular. If you’re curious to see some of my favorite location recommendations, check out my Colorado Elopement Location Guide.
Intimate wedding days are entirely unique, and couples have the flexibility to choose which vendors to hire based on their specific priorities and preferences. As I often emphasize, prioritization is key when planning your elopement. Not every Pinterest trend or extra detail will enhance your wedding experience, so it’s essential to focus on what holds the most importance to you and your partner.
While there are no strict rules about which vendors you must hire, I understand the importance of finding the perfect team to bring your vision to life. That’s why I provide a list of preferred rockstar wedding vendors as part of your luxury elopement package. Whether you’re dreaming of a private chef to create a culinary masterpiece, a talented florist to bring color to your elopement day with one-of-a-kind arrangements, or a skilled baker to design a delicious wedding cake, I’ll ensure you have access to the best in the industry. And, of course, I also have recommendations for hair and makeup artists, caterers, videographers, musicians, and officiants.
Collaborating with these wedding vendors allows us to create a seamless, authentic, and personalized elopement experience tailored to your unique style and preferences. To explore more insights on vendors to consider for your elopement day, visit my comprehensive guide.
Planning an elopement involves more than just selecting a beautiful location; it also requires obtaining the necessary permits, if applicable, to ensure a seamless and hassle-free experience. Many stunning outdoor ‘wedding venues’, including national parks, state parks, and other protected areas, require permits for weddings and photography sessions.
These permits serve several purposes, including regulating visitor access, preserving natural resources, and managing the impact of events on the environment. Without the appropriate permits, couples risk facing fines, disruptions to their ceremony, or even being asked to leave the location – all of which are consequences easily and best avoided.
As part of my commitment to providing you with an authentic and stress-free elopement experience, I take care of wrangling those permit-related tasks. I obtain most permits on my own without any further action needed from you. However, for those permits that must be applied for by the couple themselves, I will guide you through the process to easily obtain the necessary permits and avoid any hiccups on your special day.
Additionally, for certain locations, I maintain active permits at all times, including Boulder Open Space & Mountain Parks and Jefferson County. With my attention to detail and dedication to preserving our environment, you can focus on celebrating your love while I handle the logistics behind the scenes.
“Stephanie was always quick to respond to any questions I had from the beginning, she helped me get my hair & makeup appt set, had a perfect outline schedule of the day, and basically not only was my photographer she was a wedding planner as well! We are so happy with everything from our special day! I highly recommend Stephanie for your wedding & engagement photos! ♥️”

Wedding day timelines serve as the roadmap for your special day, ensuring that everything runs smoothly and everyone involved knows what to expect. While elopements may have a more intimate and relaxed vibe, having a well-planned timeline is still essential. As part of your luxury elopement package, I’m here to assist you in creating a mindful and intentional timeline tailored to your unique vision and priorities.
Crafting an intentional elopement timeline allows us to allocate ample time for each aspect of your day, from getting ready and exchanging vows to savoring cake and capturing golden hour portraits. But it’s not just about sticking to a schedule; it’s about creating space to fully immerse yourselves in the moment and cherish every precious memory.
During the timeline planning process, I also collaborate with couples to brainstorm additional ideas and activities that they may want to incorporate into their elopement day to make the day authentically theirs. Whether it’s a sunrise hike, a private vow exchange, or a romantic picnic under the stars, I’ll work with you to bring your vision to life and ensure that your elopement day is as unique and unforgettable as your love story.

“My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Stephanie! From the day we booked her she was on top of everything and went above and beyond what we had expected from our photographer.

With my luxury elopement packages, I also offer content creation to provide you with multiple perspectives of your epic elopement day. While photos serve as timeless keepsakes, content creation can add an extra layer of storytelling and immersion to your experience.
Although this service is relatively new, it’s quickly becoming a staple in elopement planning.

These sneak peeks allow you to bask in the emotions and memories while you’re still enjoying the high of your special day.
But the excitement doesn’t stop there. With unlimited gallery access, you’ll have the freedom to revisit and download all your photos. Whether you want to cherish them privately or share them with friends and family, you have the flexibility to do so with ease. Additionally, you’ll have printing rights, empowering you to fill your home with tangible reminders of the love and joy you experienced on the day you said “I do.”
For those who appreciate the timeless appeal of printed photographs, I also offer album design services. There’s something truly special about flipping through a beautifully crafted album, reliving each moment captured in print.
