9 reasons to elope!
Eloping is a romantic and perfect way to start off your marriage! You save money, your wedding is an adventure, there’s no family drama or stress of planning a huge wedding, you can take your time and get the most epic pictures you’ve always dreamed of, and you’ll have the most amazing story to tell everyone when you get back!
It’s just the two of you.
It’s just the two of you. Imagine having the most amazing view, holding hands with the love of your life and saying your vows in an intimate setting with only the trees and the mountains in attendance…. you don’t normally get that with a traditional wedding.
$26,000 is the average wedding cost in America in 2018. For 1/4 the cost you can travel to the mountains of Colorado, say your vows in the presence of breathtaking views and hire me to take epic pictures that you’ll cherish for the rest of your life!
Get Epic Pictures
No one is in a hurry and your photographer can concentrate on the two of you without worrying about getting you to a reception, or what to do with 10 groomsmen and bridesmaids!
Start your marriage off right
There is no better way to start off your marriage, than to be debt free (or close to it)! A lot of couples are paying for their own wedding these days and you don’t want the best day of your life to be a financial burden.
You’ve been dreaming of this day your whole life. You want and deserve everything to be perfect, but there are so many moving parts to a wedding and things just happen. Family, friends, flowers… whatever it is, with so many moving parts, it sometimes results in drama. Eloping is just the two of you and the chance of any drama decreases dramatically.
Take Your Time
Take your time, enjoy nature, and be in the moment together. The only time crunch you will encounter with an elopement is what time to do your hair and make up, and what time you have to start hiking to have your ceremony at sunrise or sunset!
No Planning Needed
When you elope, the only other person you have to please is the person standing right in front of you. You agree on a few decisions like an inspiring location, the date, and should we hire Joe Hendricks to photograph it, and go for it!!
Have a Great Story to Tell
Who doesn’t love showing off their wedding pictures? But what would you rather show? A wedding that pretty much every one else on earth has, or a story about you chasing after a passionate adventure together as a couple, climbing mountains while your dress blows in the wind as you say your vows! Every one will gawk at your images and wish they had the courage to do the same.
Believe it or not, families are starting to support eloping more and more these days! Parents save a ton of money by not paying for a huge wedding! They also are starting to understand that eloping has changed. It’s no longer about a last minute, rebellious decision to marry in Vegas; it’s about beginning your lifelong commitment in a way that is special to you and your spouse.
