Meet Your Photographer, And  
Adventure Pal For Your Dream Elopement In Maine

Hi, I'm Liz!

Overwhelmed at the prospect of a big wedding ( My husband has 12 aunts & and uncles plus spouses!!) and feeling my inner introvert shy away at the thought of all those people, we decided to ditch everything that didn’t work for us and share our vows in a quiet destination ceremony with only a handful of our closest friends and family.


Seventeen years later, I still look back on our wedding experience as one of the best days we've shared together. 

I truly believe you won’t regret listening to your heart and planning an event that feels perfect for YOU. 

So How Does This Work?

Photo coverage of your day

Don't worry, the goal is not a stressful, all-day photoshoot!  We're not in a rush and we're not focused on posing for the camera.. My approach is a blend of working together to create photos that tell your wedding story and stepping back to document the momentw and feelings you share from afar, allowing you to have a truly intimate experience.  My goal is for you to feel relaxed and completely in the moment. 

All your photos + complimentary album design

You’ll receive all of the images from your elopement day, in high resolution, artfully retouched, and delivered in an online digital gallery so you can view, download, print, and share your images. Included is a print release allowing you choice in when and how you print your images.  You'll also receive a complimentary album design with the option to purchase from my heirloom binary in the heart of Europe. These one-of-a-kind wedding albums are the very best way to honor the investment you've made in your wedding experience and the ultimate souvenir from your adventure. 

Customized location ideas 

Most couples who come to me have no idea where they want to say their vows except that they want to marry in Maine. After learning about what matters most to you, I'll research and share locations ideas along with unique experience ideas. 

Once we've landed on a location, I'll share a list of vendors who can help elevate your special day: florists, hair & makeup artists, private chef or picnic vendor, professional driver, dog sled team....whatever we dream up!

Personalized timeline for your day 

Once we know when and where you'll marry,  I'll expertly develop a day of timeline that ensures the best possible timing for transportation,  lighting, seclusion, & tides so that your experience goes smoothly.

So ThisIs Love

" Liz knew how to make us comfortable so that we could be ourselves around her and her camera. We were drawn to her warm smile, ability to capture unique moments, and bring the atmosphere of the surroundings into each photo.

Liz is an organized, cool, and calm companion that you’ll love having at your side. Her confidence and organization ensured that of all the logistics, finalizing details for photography were the last thing we needed to worry about. Indeed, on the day of the wedding, as the stage was set for “first looks” (HIGHLY recommend, even if you’re skeptical), seeing Liz’s warm glow and smile just helped set a tone for how special that day can be for a couple. From then on, we let her lead the way, and we were overwhelmed with gratitude for her steady hand, sharp eye, and ability to get the right shot. "

"We had a tiny wedding on an island in Maine. Above and beyond her beautiful photography, Liz was a wonderful presence at our wedding, she made everything so easy, and she had the ability to be everywhere at once, but never once in the way."

"Liz is a wonderful person and photographer. We eloped with our children and she did ALL the leg work for locations and had everything planned. The day was so relaxing and our images....let me tell you, STORYBOOK PHOTOS. Liz was worth every penny and I would 100% recommend her. I cannot say enough good things about Liz. "

"Easiest decision we made. Leading up to the big day, Liz's expertise and organization helped us feel confident in mapping out our timeline and preparing for details we hadn't even thought of. Her kind-hearted and down-to-earth nature fit right in with our friends and family. You would have thought she was one of the group! Whether she was taking portraits up close or candids from afar, she made us feel at ease. She made us laugh, smile, cry, feel beautiful and loved.
AND, we couldn't be more in love with how our photos turned out. We will always treasure her and the genuine and beautiful moments she captured. "

We could not recommend Liz’s services enough! We had a micro wedding in Acadia National Park on October of 2023 and She took care of everything. Our wedding was absolute perfection. 

Liz met with us several times leading up to the day, easing our worries and answering all our questions - we’re from Florida and had never been to Maine (we picked the spot off of some pictures from Pinterest one random late night). Liz completely mapped out our day, pictures and maps, little suggestions for photo opportunities.

After the wedding was done and we were finally home we met with Liz to get our final edited photos. She was so quick with it and the final edits and album experience was breathtaking. The colors popped and she made what was an already beautiful experience even more lovely. 

We highly recommend Liz, she’s incredible and without her help, I just don’t think the day would have been as memorable. Having never been to Maine or Acadia National Park we relied heavily on her past experience and the knowledge she had. In the words of my dad, “each place was prettier than the last.” We would not change a thing about our special day, it was absolute perfection.
