If you are up for a unique experience in a wild, super cool landscape, then consider an Alberta Badlands Elopement just outside Drumheller! It’s Alberta’s desert landscape and just like the beautiful landscapes of Utah & Arizona to the south, the Badlands have their own extraordinary rock formations, called Hoodoos as well as canyons, and […]

The Badlands of Alberta, Canada are a unique and beautiful landscape that provides a stunning backdrop for any adventure. If you’re looking for a memorable way to capture your […]

You might be saying to yourself “what is a modern elopement? I see so many people eloping and all I can think of is the stories from my childhood of people sneaking off and coming home with rings on their fingers; they ran off to the court house or another city and secretly got married!”
Well in the 2000s elopements have taken on a different image, slightly different meaning, and the “rules”…well THERE ARE NONE! In today’s day and age Elopements are not necessarily about secrets and they definitely are not about courthouses (I think where I live in Calgary you can’t even go to the courthouse to get married anymore).
Iceland Elopements – I WANT THEM ALL!! Iceland is a huge bucket list travel destination for me for photography and I am DYING to shoot elopements there!! They say you should show to the world what you want to shoot, so here I am blogging about this dream of mine. No I haven’t shot there yet, but I have shot in locations far away from my hometown and nothing changes but the scenery and the incredible people I get to meet! <3
Why do I love it, if I have never been…YET?!! 😉
Well it has a wild and exotic landscape similar in some ways to Canada and yet so different! In Iceland you will find mountains and waterfalls just like in the Canadian Rockies, my home, but there's so much more! I LOVE to travel and I want to experience this island with an incredible couple to tell their love story; ask my hubby I would just drive him nuts if I went without a couple to shoot!! LOL
So you are eloping and you have decided on an Adventure Elopement in the mountains. Most likely you are an outdoorsy person and you have an idea of what you need to bring when you are adventuring in the Rocky Mountains but I am here to remind you or maybe you just don’t know.
If you have dreamed of saying your vows at the top of a majestic mountain far above the world, with the first rays of the sun kissing your faces then you need to hike, in the dark with headlamps and all sorts of noises in the forest (creepy), hours before the sun greets the day…but trust me when I day it’s 100% WORTH IT!! There is no experience like it!
