This is

We cut out all the stiff posing and cheesy smiles; and focus on telling your story, in an honest and cinematic way. After all, your wedding experience is one of a kind, and your photos should be too. 

What is an elopement?

Elopements used to be defined as running off in secret, typically without parental approval to get married. But elopements have changed so drastically that we're throwing out that whole definition. 

We define elopements as an adventurous and non-traditional wedding experience, typically in nature and with 10 or less people present. This opens up all the possibilities for a wedding experience that feels like your authentic selves.

Stunning views and Midwest hues

Though at first glance you may see a lot of corn in Michigan and Indiana, there are all sorts of hidden gem locations. The Midwest is full of stunning, diverse geography from waterfalls, flower fields and forests, to rocky canyons, dunes, and mountain like hills. You don't have to travel far to have your own epic elopement experience! 

When you book with me you receive full location scouting services, so if you don't have a location chosen yet, you don't have to worry about the logistics and details. That includes a custom made location guide with pictures and details of each location, so you can choose exactly what fits you!

"We hired Corinne to photograph our dunes elopement with about 2 months heads up and she made our planning process so easy! We didn’t have much vision and she really helped direct us through the planning process and through our day to make it even better than we could have imagined. She delivered all of our photos early and they turned out so well!! We cannot imagine a better elopement experience and we would recommend Corinne to anyone who asks!"

Client Love

"We had not taken professional photos before our elopement and corinne made us feel so comfortable, it was like spending the day with a friend!"

She helped us map out how the day would go, which was so nice because we went into it not fully knowing what we wanted to do. She made sure that we got everything we for sure wanted out of the day, and she had some amazing suggestions herself that made it even more special!

She was so personable and kind as well, which made us feel very comfortable during the pictures. We couldn’t be happier with how the pictures turned out! Corinne is very talented and overall the best photographer I have ever had experience with!

-Bethany & Drew

I can’t even put into words how much I appreciate all that Corinne did to make sure our elopement was everything we wanted and more, as well as capturing it so beautifully!

All are loved and welcome here.

We firmly believe in creating a safe and open space for everyone. You deserve to be fully known and loved on your wedding day, regardless of skin color, gender, sexuality, or size. 

Adventuring is for everyone.
