the experience


Did you feel the stress melt away
 when you decided to elope?

Heres the thing...

Choosing to elope melts away the stress of planning a big traditional wedding and opens a window to endless possibilities for your wedding day.  Your thinking YES this ROCKS but... how does this all come together? 
That is why I am here for you, I will help you dream and plan your day down to the final detail, I've gotcha!  We can create the day exactly how you desire including any crazy activity you can think of.  
Relax, take a deep breath and celebrate your decision to kick aside the norm and take the road less traveled.

Freedom to be you

Why choose me as your photographer?

My number one goal is to help you and your partner feel natural and relaxed in front of my lens.  I love capturing your sweet moments together showing laughter, playfulness and intimacy.
I believe that you and your partner deserve my full attention so I limit the number of bookings I take through out the year to ensure your day is planned out exactly how you envision it.
 It's important to me that we both feel we are a great match and that you feel relaxed and confident when booking me as your photographer.  Meeting with you in person and getting to know a little bit about each other will ensure we vibe. ( I love meeting for coffee). Of  course a zoom call is also an option.

I enjoyed my own intimate wedding  in 2020 celebrating with just our kids and their partners. There was still planning to be done, finding the perfect location that meant something to us both, writing vows, hiring our officiant, choosing a cake and flowers and sharing with extended family why we wanted to keep it small and intimate.  Experiencing my own small wedding added insight to my elopement and intimate wedding planning that I can pass on to you as you begin creating your amazing day.

I am a mama to three, strong daughters and grandma to the sweetest little man ever.  Raising three daughters definitely gave me the skills to problem solve and have a plan B and C in place.

So no matter where you are in your life..
First wedding..or not.
You have little ones..or not
 or maybe fur babies are your thing
Your day is for you no matter your journey and I am here to help create the day that speaks to your hearts.
I have been through different seasons in my life. I have been where you are...I get you!!   Let's chat!


Our experience with Anita was great! She has such a fun personality. She has such an enthusiasm and passion for photography so we never ran out of ideas! We were so happy with the number of quality photos included in the package and price. We will absolutely work with her again! - Ben and Danielle

"Anita is incredibly talented and made us feel comfortable and natural during our photos."

So much love here

 She made the photographing process easy as sometimes it can feel awkward getting your photos taken but I did not feel awkward at all. She hand selected a location for us that fit us perfectly as a couple. She is very timely, organized and had great communication with us. Of course the most important part, the photos turned out beautiful! -Brooklyn + Manuel

"Anita was very comfortable to be around,"

What is the difference between an elopement and intimate wedding?

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you provide other photography services such as seniors or maternity sessions?

Elopements can just be the couple or shared with a few close friends and family, consisting of 5-10 guests depending on the restrictions of the planned location. Elopements take place somewhere in nature, including national parks that will usually require permits and making arrangements well in advance. 

Intimate weddings can range from 10-25 guests depending on the restrictions of the location. Couples may choose to capture their ceremony more like an elopement with a celebration of more guests later in the day. Intimate weddings may take place somewhere out in nature or at a small wedding venue.

Frequently Asked Questions


It all depends on what your vision of your day looks like. If you are having a quick ceremony and only want a few images of sharing your vows and portraits, a four hour session is plenty. 

However, if you want to have a relaxed day and a bit of adventure including getting ready, first look, family portraits, and dancing under the stars as you end your day, you will want to look for a 8-10 hour timeline to ensure you get photos of your entire day. 

Do you have an example Timeline?

Yes! I travel all over the country to capture love stories. Let me know what location you're looking at, or if you're still unsure, I can help you decide!
