Adventure Elopement Photographer

Life’s greatest adventure starts at “I Do!” From adventure elopements, destination weddings, engagements and couple’s sessions; I capture the connection you can’t explain, the unspoken love in fingertip touches while in wild wanderings. An Adventure elopement or creating destination weddings opens a world of possibilities to connect and capture beautiful memories that tell a couple’s authentic love story in an intimate setting.

It's Urgent to live Adventurously, to Experience Awe and Wonder

Hi! I’m Brittany West

Often traveling to photograph wandering weddings worldwide and across the U.S. to preserve a couple’s memories is my most cherished task as an adventure elopement photographer. Combining artistic portraits and documentary storytelling is a stylistic approach that I incorporate into every photoshoot to capture all those moments you want to hold close.

I will forever be grateful for the couples that chose me to document their wedding day. It is because of them that I have stood at the edge of the Grand Canyon, hiked the Rocky Mountains before sunrise and felt the ocean breeze at the edge of cliffs in Scotland.

Are elopement photography packages able to be customized?

While my packages are designed to cover the adventures of several locations and the different activities throughout the elopement day, I am happy to create something special for the couple that is more specific to their wedding photography needs.

Dear Betrothed Couples,

You’ve worked so hard to get to this place and now you have many more decisions to make. The power of wedding photography lies in the ability to create something that transcends time and preserves the memory that will eventually fail to recall the type of flowers that filled your bouquet or how your husband held your hand, wiped your tears of joy as you said your wedding vows.

There are plenty of ways to have a wedding with even more wedding photographers to capture it but if you take anything away from my website just remember this- You have this one moment to fulfill and celebrate this beautiful union, embrace the rhythm of the wedding journey and just make sure it’s yours!

Images Embedded with the Poetry of a Place

If the thought of a traditional wedding in a dusty, dated church or an outdated reception hall leaves you less than hyped and makes you feel like the planning process creates a thick mental fog eloping or a destination wedding is the best alternative. Scenic mountains, enchanting forests, serene meadows, or flowing waterfalls are the best alternative for the couple that decides to adventure instead!

Kind Words

"She did all the research and made us feel at ease the entire planning process. Brittany is very resourceful and if she doesn't have the answer to your question she will not stop until she finds out. I look back on our wedding pictures and still wonder how we got so lucky to have her document this perfect day."
-Isabella & Gabe

An adventure elopement isn’t in direct contrast to traditional weddings; however, it is a celebration in uncharted nature with an invitation to create a metaphor for the life you want to experience together. To detach ourselves of social pressures and make something new while embracing how the journey unfolds and proclaiming our love all while being intertwined with wonder. For the couple always searching for the views that take your breath away; all levels of activities can be incorporated into your elopement day to get the most jaw dropping adventure elopement photography.
