Hi, hello!

I am here to serve you and document your story

My name is Nikole! I am a Texas elopement photographer and guide currently dwelling In Austin but traveling all over this state to capture some pretty amazing elopements.

When I am not shooting or working on my computer you’ll find me hiking new trails with my dogs, floating down the river or at home watering and singing to my plants! I am definitely an introvert, I’d rather spend my time going on an adventure or connecting with my loved ones. I value deeper human connection and experiences over material things or flashy parties.

Why elopements?

After working in the wedding industry for a couple of years I noticed that traditional weddings acted as a “one size fits all” and I knew that was not the case, there had to be couples out there who were not excited about these giant flashy weddings and jam-packed timelines. I knew there were couples who valued experience and connection.

I had that big traditional wedding myself. It was stressful, half of the people in attendance were complete strangers to me and it was not at all a representation of who my husband and I are. No one told me that I had any other options for my wedding day. So I decided to become that person for Texas couples. You have options ya’ll!

Why Texas?

Texas is extremely underrated in the elopement industry and I find that to be such a shame! Texas is gorgeous and one of the most diverse states in the country! I know there are couples who would LOVE to elope here and need a sidekick to help them make that happen. So I became that sidekick. You want to elope in the desert out west? Let’s go! You like the tall pine trees of the east? Me too! What about an urban elopement downtown Austin? I am your girl! No matter what adventure you choose Texas has got something for you! Unless you want snow...we don’t get a lot of snow.

I have lived here my entire life and I know how it works. I understand the weather, seasons and backroads. I know how to find beautiful locations and I am always working on adding new places to my list! I know which plants to avoid while hiking and when the sneaky snakes come out. I can handle a Texas adventure because I have been doing it all my life and I am so thrilled that now I get to help couples have the meaningful and intimate wedding they deserve amidst the stunning Texas landscape. I am honored to show everyone how beautiful this state really is. Ahh I get so stoked just typing about it!

Love is an adventure, who says your wedding day can't be?

The two of you don't fit into any one box, and your wedding day shouldn't either!

Your elopement can be whatever you want it to be! Ten mile hike, overnight backpacking, kayaking down The Blanco River, hiking Palo Duro Canyon, scootin’ through downtown Austin. Whatever it is the two of you love to do together we can make that happen! Planning your elopement is more like planning an epic weekend getaway for the two of you. You want friends and family in on the adventure? We can do that too! All of my elopement packages act as a foundation for us to work together and build your elopement from. Think of it as a real life choose your own adventure!

Elopements are so much more than a photoshoot.

Your elopement is your wedding day! It deserves the same care and attention as a traditional wedding. Those getting ready moments, your first look, the details, the landscape, your vows and your first kiss. All of your moments hold so much value and deserve to be documented for you and your loved ones to cherish. Choosing to elope means giving yourself space to be fully present on your wedding day, it means having the time to relax and take it all in.  It means intimate moments and quality time. It means adventure and experience. It does not mean compromise.

I truly believe giving yourselves a minimum of five hours for this gives you the best experience possible. You want that wiggle room to be spontaneous. You’ll be glad you have those extra moments in your gallery to share with friends and family who weren’t there with you on the day of. You will be grateful to have the space to show up as you are and be fully present without the constraints of a packed timeline.

The packages

Cue Mulan’s “Let’s get down to business”, because it is time to look over the elopement packages! I highly recommend that the two of you make this an experience, grab some wine or your favorite snacks, sit down together with your favorite blanket and go over the package options. Take this time to dream about what your elopement day might look like with each package, remember to think of it more like planning a weekend getaway together! If you happen to land on a package that is perfect for you and are ready to take the next step then that’s great! You’ll book your consultation call and we can talk all about it.
