Today I want to share with you my US Elopement Bucket List. This is a list of places I have not yet been hired to go, but I am hoping this blog will send a message to the universe that I am ready to go. One of the best parts of my job is traveling and being able to explore new places with the people I meet.
So since I have not been afforded the opportunity as of yet to go to these amazing places, I contacted some of my amazing photographer friends to help me, help you visualize how gorgeous your elopement could be. So sit back and relax because today, I am taking you on a journey. I hope by the end of it you feel inspired to know how you can take this curly-headed chick on the road with you to capture you say you’re “I do’s” in the most epic locations.
If just talking about this list makes you want to know more, contact me here.
The reason Alaska is on my elopement bucket list is that I have always had a connection with Alaska and I am not even sure where it came from, to be honest with you. Ever since I was a little girl, I felt like I had to go visit this place. Now that I am a full-blown adult the urge is stronger than ever and lets me tell you why.
Glaciers, have you ever wondered what it would be like to be inside a glacier!? I mean places like Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center allow you the opportunity to see what it would be like. I am talking about a whole cave made of ice for you to walk through, experience, and capture amazing moments in.
Colorado is a place so close to Arizona that why wouldn’t I want to go? The place I dream of capturing an elopement is Sapphire Point Overlook. Blue lakes, gorgeous green forest, and views that would make a grown man cry, which I plan on capturing. I love a place that allows you to not only elope but include your family if you want to. I say Colorado is a place of endless opportunity and this girl is down to explore it all.
Being that it is so close to Arizona I have always been one just to take a road trip and explore this familiar place, yet has its character. My motivation to capture an elopement in Utah has solely been to visit the Bonneville Salt Flats. Yes, I know that this is a very popular place and that could deter many people from wanting to go, but I say why not?! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a location that you won’t find anywhere else.
When you think of the ultimate vacation, does the word Hawaii come to mind? It does for me and that is because of the significance of the culture that resides on every island. I would like to go to Kauai because of the beautiful cliffs that overlook the ocean and the peacefulness of the whole island. I have heard stories of this magical place and I know one day I will be able to experience a special couple or two.
Washington has more than enough places that you can go to get epic views. My top favorite place to elope here would be North Cascade, National Park. Could you imagine having dark mountains and crisp white snow as your background? I am talking about spending half the day hiking and then the other half enjoying the food and drinks. Plus, I hear the best time to elope is between July and October which is right around the corner (wink, wink).
The great thing about my job is that I can travel anywhere in the world for you. So creating this elopement bucket list is not a way to show you that I would die a happy woman if I could go, but to speak these locations into my future. So if you love the idea that you can get married anywhere and you want to learn more about all the fun that we can have together then contact me here and let’s get this party started!
All these elopement locations would be amazing to shoot at! I’ve always wanted to shoot an elopement in Alaska. I hope this year brings you all the epic elopement inquiries!
