You still want to make a big deal about this day that'll be your anniversary forever!

Elopements are changing. You can bring guests, you can plan it out well in advance, and you can fill it with meaningful experiences.

You want this day to be about YOU TWO. 

You want a day that is intentional and crafted to center your love, not meaninglesss traditions or family pressure.

let's make a big deal about it!

Hey! I'm Samantha Patri

outdoor enthusiast, bookworm, and photographer

If you could do anything on your wedding day, what would you do?

Have a once-in a lifetime adventure? A new, epic experience?

Cross a new place off your bucket list?

Do all your favorite things?

Wake up slow + cuddly, and end the night stargazing?

Let's dream up the best day ever

What's the sitch?

Seriously every single couple! Every couple you're seeing on my site and social media have told me the same thing. "Sam we're awkward!" "We're not photogenic!" "My fiancé hates getting their picture taken!"

No sweat though, I gotchu. I'll help you get comfortable and give you silly prompts to make you laugh. All photos are then intentionally culled so you get all the best ones.

Everyone says that.

Not comfortable in front of a camera?

I'm ready to get in touch!
