Elopement

The  perfect intimate adventure for couples wanting to break with convention for their special day altogether. If cookie-cutter weddings with all eyes on you make you feel more queasy than romantic, this unconventional backcountry celebration allows you to focus solely on each other rather than coordinating a production, navigating uncomfortable family dynamics, and meeting other's expectations for your wedding day.

By dashing into the wilderness behind a team of eager huskies to exchange your vows, you pledge yourself to your partner on a one-of-a-kind experience through snow-covered pines and pristine meadows on the adventure of a lifetime.

Rather than posing awkwardly as the centerpiece spectacle for hours, you'll be immersed in incredible wintry scenery and exciting activities like learning commands to drive your sled team. With no need for stuffy traditions or acbig guest list, you get to embrace doing things your unique way wholeheartedly. After you sled to a storybook location, recite heartfelt vows in a private ceremony officiated just for the two of you.

Celebrate your romantic rebellion from tradition by letting your soulmate and sled dogs be your cheering section. The only attention you'll get is from squirrels. Adventure, intimacy, and dogs await!

Meet Your Photographer, And Co-Conspirator For Your Dream Elopement In Maine

Hi, I'm Liz!

 

Overwhelmed at the prospect of a big wedding;  Feeling my inner introvert shy away at the thought of all those people...My husband and I decided to ditch everything that didn’t work for us and share our vows in a quiet ceremony in Key West. Seventeen years later, I don’t regret a single moment.

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

My goal is help you have the same experience- a wonder-filled elopement, private vows, and extraordinary photos to remember it by.

“Simply the Best. Better than all the rest”

Those may have been the words heard by our guests as Andrew and I walked down the aisle. But more importantly, it only begins to describe the appreciation and good fortune we have in finding and hiring Liz to be our wedding photographer.

Neither Andrew and I are necessarily drivers of our own attention, and coming up with a plan for how to have our photos shot wasn’t easy! However, from our first virtual meeting, 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 were excited to receive our photos, but we didn’t expect how a photo could so easily bring us back to that special day. A slight tease of the photos came the day after the wedding, which was so fun. But the delivery of the photos came with us all seeing them together for the first time over a zoom meeting, which only showed how much she truly cares and takes pride in her work. Now, the difficult part…choosing photos for print!

We couldn’t be happier to have found Elizabeth-Ivy Photography, and would recommend her without reservation. Thank you, Liz!

Finding Liz to do our wedding was the most unexpected surprise for our small intimate elopement we planned in two weeks. We didn't realize how much we needed her to make our day complete. The pictures that she took captured the joy, fun, intimate, and even nervousness that we had throughout the day. I can't even express how much she added to our day with her natural genuine interest in our relationship and capturing our happiness. Thank you Liz!

Liz is a wonderful person and photographer. We eloped with our children while on vacation in Maine. She did ALL the leg work for locations and had everything planned. She even changed course a few weeks before (at our request due to the amount of people). The day was so relaxing and all the kids loved this instead of a traditional wedding (us too).

We got a few photos in a sneak peek and let me tell you what... STORYBOOK PHOTOS. Family enjoyed browsing the gallery once it was up and those photos were just as lovely.

Liz was worth every penny and I would 100% recommend her and/or use her again. I cannot say enough good things about Liz. 💗

Liz was one of the easiest and best decisions we made for our wedding day. Having to cancel and reschedule our big day due to the pandemic was not easy, but Liz was so flexible, thoughtful, and supportive. Leading up to the big day, her expertise and organization helped us feel confident in mapping out our timeline and preparing for details we hadn't even thought of. She also helped us stay on track with all of the excitement on the wedding day itself.
Her kind-hearted and down-to-earth nature fit right in with all 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.turnedLiz, we cannot thank you enough! And, if you're getting married in Maine, we cannot recommend Liz enough!!

We are so thankful we had Liz as our photographer for our wedding. She was actually more than just our photographer, she provided us with general tips and, a wedding day timeline, which we took and revised just a bit and made it our own. She was a voice of reason for us and provided great feedback on making the day our own.  She was very organized and sent us sneak peek pics the next day, which was awesome to see some of her favs. The wedding album design was so easy, especially considering we had 800 pictures to look at! We loved her energy and are so thankful for her being a part of our day!
