Because Your wedding is unique, and your photos should be too

Traditional weddings aren't for everyone, and that's okay! If the thought of having a traditional wedding makes you feel more anxious and sick than excited, then you should should elope instead. 

So throw out the rulebook, and break the cookie cutter mold for weddings. That's why we created elopement packages that are customizable, so you can absolutely have everything you want, and nothing you don't.

Break the traditional wedding mold.

And take the anxiety out of wedding planning

This is the time you get to go all out and celebrate your love the way you want to. And it should be with all the fun, and none of the stress. The way weddings are supposed to be!

You deserve a space of peace

"I can't wait to get this over with." is a phrase I've heard far too often in my years as a wedding photographer, and it breaks my heart every time. If this is something that's run through your head, stop and ask yourself, why?

Maybe you have social anxiety, or a strained relationship with family. Or maybe you'd rather spend money on a nice vacation than wedding decor. Or maybe you don't like the idea of a traditional wedding, but don't know what your wedding day could look like instead. 

The beauty of eloping means you have options, and you don't have to fit the mold society has made for weddings. You deserve so much more than that. No, you deserve a wedding day that feels true to you. You deserve unforgettable, emotional memories and experiences with your partner at the start of your marriage. 

Experience > Expectations

We believe your wedding should be an experience. Eloping means you can craft a wedding day that is authentic and true to you, and celebrates the start of your marriage. Because after all, marriage is just a lifetime of experiences together! 

That's why when we say throw the rulebook out, we mean it.

You can elope just the two of you, or have 20 of your closest friends and family. You can hike a mountain or have an easy walk to the beach to exchange vows. You can have a crazy after party, or a chill dinner you make together. 

The world is your oyster, and we're here to help you photograph and bring your elopement dreams and ideas to life!

What's Included

In all our elopement & intimate Wedding packages

As soon as you book, we send a detailed questionnaire that helps us better get to know your hearts and vision for your wedding experience. This includes a lot of great questions for you to answer together and help you decide what you do and don't want your day to look like!

All-the-details Questionnaire

Travel is already included in all packages! I'll handle all the travel logistics for myself, so you can rest easy. 

Included Travel Fees

I help you decide your general location and also send a custom made detailed guide of specific location options/trails and the details included. We follow Leave No Trace principles, and believe in taking care of national and state parks, which often require permits for photography. Permit costs are not included in packages but I help find all the necessary permits for photography and if you plan on legally marrying at your location!

Location scouting / permit assistance

Once general details are decided, I'll help you craft a seamless and stress free timeline for your day! I'll also send recommendations for activities to do together, and what is or isn't permitted at your chosen locations, so you can make your wedding experience even more personal!

Custom Timeline Creation + Activity recommendations

We offer a plethora of resources for planning your elopement / wedding, and are always here to answer any questions, no matter how small! We'll send recommended vendors if you need, and we also make several back-up plans for your elopement in case mother nature gets in the way. So you can truly be stress-free and enjoy the experience. 

Planning resources, recommendations, & Logistics

Yep,  I'm legally ordained and able to marry you, (and so is Jake!) So if you want to keep your ceremony as small and private as possible, one of us can marry you. We also help research all the requirements and rules for your location if you plan on legally marrying there. 

optional Complementary officiant services

You'll receive previews within a week after your day, so you can share and relive those memories while they are still fresh! The rest of your gallery will arrive in a private, online gallery 6-8 weeks later. We give you full printing rights so you can print anywhere at anytime, but also offer a print store directly through your gallery if you want to keep things easy!

I don’t even know where to start in describing how incredible Corinne with SparrowSong Collective is! She took our engagement photos, our wedding photos, and even some boudoir photos for me. Not only is she phenomenal at her job, she’s kind and easy to be around. She is super fast at responding to emails and questions, and was very supportive through the entire wedding planning process. She sends sneak peaks so quickly, and I would not hesitate to recommend Corinne to anyone and everyone! My fiancé and I are not picture people, both hate being the center of attention, and are awkward in front of a camera. Corinne makes everything so natural and easy though! Nobody could possibly regret hiring her! She will do literally anything to make sure you have the perfect experience. If you want not only an amazing photographer, but a new genuine & kind friend/hype girl ... hire Corinne!

She captured all of the most special moments of our wedding flawlessly, and her photos help me relive the day every single time I look at them! (which is a lot).

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

Where are you located?

Where are you located?

I'm based in good ole' Fort Wayne Indiana, but travel all over for sweet weddings and elopements. Travel costs are already factored into all my packages as well!

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INTIMATE WEDDINGS & ELOPEMENTS?

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INTIMATE WEDDINGS & ELOPEMENTS?

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN INTIMATE WEDDINGS & ELOPEMENTS?

We define elopements as 20 guests or less! Over 20 guests we consider intimate weddings, although there is no difference in pricing. The start of your marriage is extraordinary and should be documented as such, regardless if it's just the two of you or 50 guests. 

WE FEEL AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT?

WE FEEL AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT?

WE FEEL AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT?

I feel you. Getting your photo taken can feel super intimidating or scary, but don't worry! I love to play fun music to fit the mood, and get you guys moving and laughing organically through natural prompts. Forced poses and "cheese!" is not my forte, and instead I love to hang out, chat, and capture you two as you are. I love candids, but I absolutely give direction when needed to make sure you are comfortable. (Because who ever knows where to put their hands?)

Can our family and friends come to our elopement?

HOW MANY PHOTOS DO WE GET AND WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND?

Can our family and friends come to our elopement?

Hell yeah they can! The beauty of elopements is that there are no rules. You can have family and friends join you for an intimate ceremony, or keep it private. You can celebrate with just family or just friends. You can have a private morning and celebrate with guests at an after party in the afternoon or next day. You can include whoever you want, however you want, and we can help you decide what that looks like!

Do we have to hike? 

CAN WE USE OUR COMPLIMENTARY ENGAGEMENT SESSION FOR SOMETHING ELSE?

Do we have to hike? 

Not at all! The majority of elopement photos you see on this page involved less than one mile of hiking total. You don't have to be a super active hiker to elope, and you can decide how much walking you're comfortable with. There are tons of locations that are just a ten minute walk from a parking lot to reach! Or consider a taking a tour with a 4x4, jeep, dune buggy, boat, or helicopter if you want a private, remote location or epic views without a long hike. 

What if we want to elope, but don't have a location in mind?

HOW DO WE OFFICIALLY BOOK?

What if we want to elope, but don't have a location in mind?

Actually, a lot of couples don't have exact locations / details figured out yet when booking with us and that is totally okay! We get that this is probably your first time planning an elopement, so we are very hands on and work with you to find a location that fits you perfect. We also send you a questionnaire that goes over scenery suggestions and what you like. From there I'll send an extensive location list with all the details (like trail length and difficulty) and we'll collaborate to find the perfect hidden gem locations!

DO YOU USE A SHOT LIST + DO FORMAL SHOTS?

DO YOU USE A SHOT LIST + DO FORMAL SHOTS?

DO YOU USE A SHOT LIST + DO FORMAL SHOTS?

Rather than going off a shot list of what to capture, I like to shoot the day as it naturally unfolds. I capture all the details, getting ready shots, group photos and of course family formals- just without the "pretend to do this and pose for fifteen minutes!" I also understand family members love the classic photos of the two of you smiling for the camera, so I am always sure the sprinkle a few traditional photos into your gallery as well, so your grandma has something to hang on the fridge!

HOW DO WE KNOW HOW MUCH COVERAGE WE NEED?

HOW DO WE KNOW HOW MUCH COVERAGE WE NEED?

HOW DO WE KNOW HOW MUCH COVERAGE WE NEED?

We'll figure this out together over your consultation call! I'll go over example timelines, details of your day, and what you want covered to ensure you have the perfect amount of coverage. And you can always add on more time if wanted at any point as well. 

Do you offer payment plans?

Do you offer payment plans?

Do you offer payment plans?

Absolutely! I offer several different payment plan options, so you don't have to worry about money, and instead can focus on enjoying this chapter of life to the fullest with each other! 

HOW DO WE OFFICIALLY BOOK?

HOW DO WE OFFICIALLY BOOK?

HOW DO WE OFFICIALLY BOOK?

Booking is easy peasy. Once my contract is signed and a 30% retainer is made you are officially all booked! I usually communicate with you over the phone or email but we can absolutely meet up for drinks and chat about details. 

So, how does this work?

1. get connected!

Fill out my contact form and don't be shy, I love hearing all the sweet details about your love story and wedding vision. I respond within 24 hours so keep an eye on your inbox!

2. Consultation Call

I believe it's so important to connect well with your photographer. We'll schedule a consult call and get to know each other, and  I'll walk you through my process, how much coverage you'd need, and discuss all the logistics!

3. time to book!

Woohoo! You're ready to book! I'll send you two a proposal with a contract and payment portal. All that's required to book with me is a signed contract and a 30% retainer to reserve your date! The final 70% is due one month before your wedding. (And I do offer payment plans!)

4. It's party time

After booking I'll send you a questionnaire and we'll get started on all the planning, from your engagement session to a stress free timeline, and everything in between. Let's get you freaking married!

Love conquers all.

It's time to document your greatest adventure yet.
