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’ve always had a passion for outdoor adventures and dreamt of incorporating them into my work and lifestyle. Combined with my passion for couples and wedding photography as well as my lack of passion for traditional weddings I decided to lean into adventure weddings and elopements instead. I bring my adventurous skills to the table along with my experience in the wedding industry so couples like you can have an experience that you are STOKED about on the day you get married.

Mindful Floral Design + Planning Guidance + Photography

Because your wedding day should not be a source of anxiety,

the dream team!

As your photographer and guide I get to document your elopement day and deliver stunning images as well as helping with the planning process! I get to help with things like  finding a location, building timelines and any other planning logistics for the day of!

 

While Kaylie from Wild Heart Floral helps make it look SO good by adding her floral flare to your elopement! She uses her magic to create stunning, adventure worthy bouquets, intimate picnics so you can have a romantic first meal as a married couple and even elopement arches. 

 

Together we have combined our powers and designed packages to add mindful floral design to your elopement! Yes eloping means being more intentional and focusing on your experience over material objects. BUT you can still incorporate beautiful touches to spice up such an important occasion!

 

We have created these packages so that you don’t have to stress over design and details, this way your planning experience is more like planning an epic weekend getaway with your favorite human.

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.  All of your moments hold so much value and deserve to be documented for you and your loved ones to cherish. 

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.

Just think of me as Nikole Velasco, photographer, location scouting magician, friend, elopement guide, hiking buddy, hype girl, pack mule, seriously the list goes on! Whatever the experience you are hoping to have on your wedding day I am here to work with you to make that happen!

Leave No Trace

It's no secret that elopements are a much more eco-friendly option than traditional weddings. So we wanted to stay true to our minimal and eco-friendly routes when creating these packages.

When choosing a ceremony arch, bouquet or picnic please keep in mind that these items will only be available in specific locations and with specific floral ingredients.

 

Some outdoor spaces are more fragile and having a ceremony arch could leave an impact on the land in addition to some plants being invasive species and put outdoor spaces we love at risk. 

When planning and designing we practice the seven Leave No Trace principles so that we can protect, preserve and continue to enjoy the outdoor spaces we know and love! 

The process

1. Check out this pricing guide! Read through everything and go over the different packages together. 

2. Get your first consult scheduled with Nikole either over the phone or via Zoom. 

3. Reserve your date

4. We work closely together creating the elopement of your dreams!

You can always email me directly to schedule your consult velasconikole@gmail.com

The packages

It's time to look over the elopement packages! 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.

If you look through these and you are unsure of which package suits you best don’t worry! I encourage you to book your consultation call anyways so we can walk through it together. I am happy to help you nail down what works best for your elopement! Basically, I got your back so don’t worry. I meant it when I said your wedding day should not be a source of anxiety.
