You made the amazing choice of eloping, now the weight is lifted off your shoulders. No more worrying about planning a big traditional wedding that doesn’t align with or feel like you.
Instead, you want a wedding day experience that is magical, intentional, and is completely for and about the two of you. A day that is all about your love, doing your favorite things together, and some adventure.
There's just one thing:
Planning an elopement can be overwhelming and you might not know where to start —
no worries! That's where I come in.
My focus is to allow you to be your authentic self while creating a unique adventure so that you have a ton of fun. I will help you plan your entire day from start to finish and capture all of your special moments and everything in-between so your photos reflect who you two truly are and tell the unique story of your day.
Whether you want to elope in the mountains, the desert or near a beautiful alpine lake...
I will help you plan a customized experience that is completely for YOU — and yes! You'll get the most amazing photos as well!!
"Hawa really went above and beyond for our photos! She does her research beforehand, even the location, to figure out the best angles and areas. She asked us questions to get a sense of what we liked and wanted and curated a set of poses based upon our answers. This was very nice especially if you're not sure how you want your photos to be. The photos also arrived quickly and were amazing! I really love my photos and it felt surreal knowing that these are the photos I will be looking at years down the line.She's a great photographer who takes their job serious. I would recommend her to anyone!"
"I had an amazing couples photo shoot session with Hawaa! She is so sweet and down to earth when you meet her. Her skills as a photographer are phenomenal as she captures the perfect moments with you and your partner. Hawaa guided us through poses and everything felt so natural as she took the photos. The pictures came out beautifully digitally & on print. I’m very happy with how the whole experience turned out I would highly recommend Hawaa & her talent for photography!"
"I will start off by saying that Hawa is an amazing photographer and person. Her photos are absolutely beautiful and they speak for themselves. She took portrait/couple photos for me and left me speechless. Hawa is so fun, attentive and made my boyfriend and I feel so comfortable and we had an amazing time. Hawa sent us our sneak peak pictures in no time and we were blown away. I would always recommend her even before she took my photos and I promise that will never change. Beyond thankful for these memories I get to hold onto forever. Thank you Hawa for all that you do"
You get unlimited consultation calls and email communication as we craft your perfect day. When you have an idea pop-up, you don’t have to keep track it... just shoot me an email!
You tell me what type of backdrop and scenery you want and I will find you locations that match it. Then, based on the location you choose, I will figure out which times to get the best lighting so you can get STUNNING photos, look incredible and walk away with some unique sets of photos that will tell your story for years.
Together, we will plan a full day timeline of all the activities you want to do and the locations you want to explore — planned to a tee, so you don't have to worry about it, later. You don't have to focus on the logistics, you get to spend all of your time to focus on each other, be in the moment and actually remember the special moments of your wedding day. I'll make sure that we are on time and where we need to be every step of the way.
Vendor Suggestions & Permits
Forget hours of vendor Googling that takes away from your "me time" and use my trusted list of vendors. That way you won't have to spend hours going down the Google rabbit hole and instead you can spend your time checking out your new local restaurant or binging Netflix.
I will also make sure that if your locations require permits, they're secured early so that we don't have to worry about it at any point along the way.
I will deliver sneak peeks within 24-48 hours!
You won’t find many photographers that send you sneak peeks of some of your favorite moments of your wedding day within 48 hours. After a shoot, I will go through the gallery and choose some of the best photos, do a quick edit then send them to you.
I love delivering sneak peeks because I want you to have something to hold on to until your full gallery is delivered. Plus, I am always so excited to see the photos so I just get to share that excitement with you.
4+ hours of coverage
Sneak peaks within 48 hours
It’s your elopement day and you get to experience it at your dream destination with your favorite people.
We will spend the next couple months going over all of the details of your elopement. This is the part you get to dream up and dream big about what your day will look like and I will finalize your customized timeline of all of your favorite activities and locations.
After our call, if we find that we are a perfect fit- I will send over a contract and an invoice for you to sign and make things official!
Fill out the contact the to let me know some details about you, your partner, your story, your dream day. Then, I will reach out to you within 2 business days via email. You'll get a link to schedule a video call so we can get to know each other better and discuss the vision for your dream day.
You can absolutely do that! The maximum guest count that I am able to accomodate is 8. Keep in mind, the more guests you include the more limited your locations options become.
Don’t worry, you don't have to do any hikes. I can find you spots that require little to no hiking.
Don’t worry, we are not going to be making awkward poses in front of the camera for hours. I really go for candid and documentary style photography. I may have prompts to help you relax a little bit in the beginning.
I aim to deliver them as soon as possible but typically I will deliver them within 6-8 weeks. I will also send you sneak speaks within the first week after your elopement.
