The experience

Maine elopement photographer


an elopement that is just as meaningful as your relationship.

If you could do whatever you wanted on the day of your elopement, what would you choose to do? Hike up a mountain at sunset to exchange your vows? Charter a boat and explore the Maine coast? Choose activities that feel like a celebration of your relationship, and I’ll capture your one-of-a-kind love.

Kind Words

“She was present and supportive in all the right ways.

My spouse and I eloped and wondered if it would feel sad or lonely (it was just us— no family or friends) but it didn’t at all and Kate was a part of that magic of belonging. Kate makes you feel right at home and has a way of encouraging your true self to burst free without inhibition. She has a true calling. You won’t be sorry you hired her.”

Elopements are the ultimate adventure

Elopements are more than just quick ceremonies and beautiful landscape portraits. They can contain just as much emotion and one-of-a-kind moments as weddings! I’ll capture the beauty of the landscape where you choose to elope, but I’ll always prioritize the raw emotion and real moments that take place on the day of your elopement. In short, your elopement will be more than a handful of portraits, it will be an experience you’ll never want to forget.

Got questions?

I have answers.

There’s no one official definition, but I define elopements as intimate celebrations (0 to 20 guests) that cater toward you and your partner having the day that you want. Is your celebration going to be larger than 20 guests? I recommend stopping by my wedding experience page!

I provide my elopement couples with assistance with creating a photo timeline, vendor and location recommendations, and share general advice when needed. I’m not a planner by any means, but I’m here to make the process feel easier.

I am located in Bangor, Maine. And yes, I do! Although many of my elopements are in coastal and southern Maine, I do book elopements elsewhere and I’d love to travel to wherever you would like to take me.

I am a creative documentary elopement photographer. I candidly photograph elopements and weddings, although I will give posing direction during couples and group portraits. I provide a mix of color and black and white photos—these color treatments are determined based on what I believe looks and works best for each image.

Well.. I’d rather capture one-of-a-kind photos that others will want to copy for their own wedding! Isn’t that more fun?

I’d rather work from a few simple requests- perhaps you really want a rowboat photo at sunset, or a dramatic veil portrait. That’s something I can do! Couples very rarely provide me with inspiration photos.

In order to ensure that your photos are carefully chosen and edited beautifully, expect your photos to be ready in eight to ten weeks. Of course, I’ll send along a few sneak peek photos within 48 hours of your elopement to tide you over. It’s worth the wait!

The number of photos that you will receive will depend on the length of your coverage, the number of guests, and the general nature of your elopement. My goal is not to provide a specific number of photos, but rather to capture the spirit and story of your wedding day. You can usually expect to see 40-50 photos per hour in your gallery.

YES!! I serve all couples. Love is love!

I use professional grade Canon camera bodies that have dual SD card slots and a variety of lenses. I bring at least 3-4 camera bodies to each elopement, lots of extra memory cards, and have backups of my most-used lenses. Some might call me overprepared. :)

Elopements start at $4,000 for weekday coverage. All collections include high resolution images, a print license, and an online gallery. On average, couples spend $5,200-$6,400 on their photography collection. Please contact me for more pricing info and to schedule a call!
