WHAT PAST COUPLES ARE SAYING

“We truly wouldn’t have had such a special experience without them.”

Bridget & Ryan were incredible to work with from the moment we first spoke to them. They asked us useful questions that helped us think through our day and provided tons of resources and recommendations which made planning much easier. They prepared a timeline for us and were very flexible on the day of our wedding. They were very organized, responsive, and professional the entire time we worked with them. We truly wouldn’t have had such a special experience without them. And, the photos are stunning! We received more than expected earlier than expected.

“Bridget and Ryan are AMAZING and were the best decision we made when planning our micro-wedding.”

Wow all the previous reviews raving about Bridget and Ryan’s work are absolutely spot on. They made our day pure magic and I cannot imagine our wedding day without them. To start, Bridget was incredibly responsive, professional, thorough and kind. She responded to so many of my emails to make sure the details and timeline of the day were just right. I could go on and on about the well-curated list of recommended vendors. Working with Bridget to design our day made it so easy to coordinate with high quality, local businesses that made our micro-wedding that much more intimate, unique, and memorable.

In addition to being the most amazing elopement/ micro-wedding planner, Bridget (and Ryan) were also so fun to hang out with! They are both so knowledgeable, relatable, kind, and just a joy to be around. We did our morning hike and private exchange of vows with them and it somehow simultaneously felt like hiking with friends and having the entire trail to ourselves. Bridget struck the perfect balance of reminding me of our timeline and allowing us and our families to enjoy each part of the day.

Then the photos–unreal! Bridget made several wonderful recommendations regarding locations based on our interests and preferred shots (since the area has so much to offer!). When the government almost shut down before our wedding, she and Ryan were ready with back up locations that alleviated nearly all stress. Our sneak peek came astonishingly quick and blew us away. We are obsessed with quite literally every photo. As someone who is not entirely comfortable in front of a camera, they put us at ease and captured the most natural, beautiful shots. We cannot wait to relive this day through their incredible work.

TLDR; Bridget and Ryan are AMAZING and were the best decision we made when planning our micro-wedding. Forever grateful for the magical day they helped create then documented. The highest of recommendations 🙂

“Overall Bridget and Ryan made our elopement day amazing, and captured some of the best pictures I’ve ever seen.”

Bridget and Ryan were truly amazing to work with. From our first phone call Bridget was so nice and helpful, providing all the information we needed and answering all our questions. Then throughout the months leading up to our elopement they were always on top of everything that needed to be done from checking for any permits needed to making sure we got the right parking passes for our location, taking so much stress away from the whole process and making it a breeze. They made our special day so much better than I could have ever imagined. I was stressed and anxious the night before, much like anyone would be, but within a few minutes of meeting Bridget and Ryan at the trailhead of our hike that stress melted away. They had the brightest smiles and were some of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my life. They guided us through what to do along the hike, where to go, and how to stand to get the best pictures. We had such a nice time on the hike it was just like hiking with friends, they were so personable it didn’t feel like a business deal, which was so nice for our wedding day. Then for our actual pictures, Bridget got a sneak peak of some of our shots back to us so quickly, and we were so happy because they are truly amazing, and better than I could have ever imagined.

Overall Bridget and Ryan made our elopement day amazing, and captured some of the best pictures I’ve ever seen.

“Our elopement was the most beautiful, magical, perfect adventure, thanks to Bridget & Ryan!”

Our elopement was the most beautiful, magical, perfect adventure, thanks to Bridget & Ryan! Bridget was a delight to work with from the first phone call, I could just tell how much she cares about the couples she works with and how much she loves what she does.

Bridget put together a curated list of recommended trails for our elopement and helped us find the most gorgeous spot! She was so quick to answer every question and always down to chat if we had anything on our minds.

The day of our elopement, we had so much fun with Bridget and Ryan. It really felt like we were hanging out with good friends. They were the perfect combo of laid back and organized, and we all had so much fun! We never felt awkward and that’s saying a lot because we are usually super awkward in front of a camera! Bridget & Ryan made us feel so at ease and were a joy to have with us on our elopement day.

We got the sneak peeks back SO quick and we were just blown away by every single photo! The photos captured the essence of us, the location, and our day so perfectly. Our families and friends told us the photos brought them to tears and made them felt like they were there with us.

“They are the kindest and most easy-going people you could ever hope to work with on your wedding day.”

From the first point of contact with Bridget and Ryan, we knew they were exactly what we were looking for when it came to adventure elopement photographers. All throughout the planning phase up until the day of the elopement, Bridget was so helpful with giving us information regarding the area since we’ve never been there before, recommendations for places to stay, restaurants to eat at and where to hike.

Bridget and Ryan were super knowledgeable when it came to all the questions and concerns we had throughout the planning process. As we got closer to our wedding, the follow up emails helped really solidify how the day was gonna look and what to expect, making this such an easy and stress free elopement. We had a bit of a scare with the national parks possibly closing the weekend leading up to the elopement but Bridget was so quick to respond and put our mind at ease (thankfully everything went as planned!). The day of the elopement me and my now husband were a bit nervous because we weren’t sure what to expect and are both kind of awkward. However, as soon as we met up with Bridget and Ryan at the trailhead, everything was so easy and natural. They are the kindest and most easy-going people you could ever hope to work with on your wedding day. Bridget is the BIGGEST hype woman out there!

The photos are absolutely breathtaking and brought us to tears when we saw them. They were able to capture such beauty, emotions and our personalities in each photo. Towards the end of the day, we were so sad to see Bridget and Ryan go because of how incredible they are. They truly made such a major impact on our day in the best way possible and we cannot imagine having anyone else with us throughout it all. They exceeded our expectations in every way possible. We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to have them photograph our special day. We highly recommend all couples work with Bridget and Ryan to capture that fairytale moment on their wedding day!

“Their love for the outdoors shines in their personalities and their work.”

Working with Bridget was absolutely seamless from beginning to end. When we decided to elope we really didn’t know where to start; Bridget was available (and happy!) to answer every question we had. Vanessa and I had never been to our elopement location before, and she provided information on accommodations, vendors, thorough location lists, even suggestions of what to do while there! When we say that working with her was like working with a life-long friend, we mean it. She is incredibly organized, professional, reassuring, and she takes pride in her work.

Vanessa and I were nervous the day of our elopement because we’re camera shy, but when we met Bridget and Ryan all that nervousness and anxiety immediately went away. They made us feel so comfortable and at ease. Their love for the outdoors shines in their personalities and their work. Our day was full of laughter, smiles, and the most beautiful scenery you can imagine. When we got our sneak peek we were over the moon! The pictures are absolutely stunning.

We truly cannot recommend Bridget enough. Our day was perfect, and we have Bridget and Ryan to thank for it.

“Without Bridget and Ryan’s expertise and planning skills our day would have not have come close to what they were able to implement for our special day.”

While googling lighthouses to plan my elopement, I stumbled upon Bridget’s website. I immediately fell in love with their photos and after a quick call on the phone, I knew she and Ryan were exactly what we were looking for. From her detailed questionnaire of getting to know us as a couple, to her amazing elopement guide ….made all the planning stress-free. Bridget and Ryan are so down to Earth, easy to work with, and immeasurable talent. Bridget was available to answer all questions big and small. Without Bridget and Ryan’s expertise and planning skills our day would have not have come close to what they were able to implement for our special day. The whole timeline from start to finish felt like a scene from a movie with photos to match! Our photos are better than we could have envisioned and we had a blast spending our day with such a fun couple! I could not have asked for better people to capture our special day. It went beyond what I was expecting .
