Eloping is

an experience intimate personal fun different

The intimate wedding that you want
Lake Louise Wedding photographer

Elopements or adventure weddings are for people who want something different.

Something that doesn’t check all the boxes society have for us. There is no more pressure about pleasing all your family, siblings, friends or plus ones that would attend a classic wedding.

Elopements and adventure weddings are about pleasing YOU. Doing what YOU love to do together on the first day of the rest of your lives.

Ask yourself: Where do you want to tell your partner how much you love them and how you will love them for the rest of your lives?

If something different is appealing to you, I am so excited for you and I can help you find your different way.

We want to know more

What does an elopement look like?

Well, an elopement is personal to you so it can look like whatever you want. There is no limit to your dreams.
(Or almost! Yeah, bad news: the moon might be off the table sorry!)

An elopement can last one day, two days, five days… It really depends on the experience you want to have.

One day allows you to take your time to wake up, dress up, make it somewhere beautiful for sunrise with your favorite cup of coffee. Enjoy the day by doing an activity you love or something you have never done before. Say your vows after this amazing day, contemplating the sunset. Have an intimate dinner. And you can even have a sneak peak at the stars during the evening.

As your photographer, I will document your whole day from dressing to the stars. You will get the full story of your day to remember and to show to those that were not there with you. To your (future) children – or pets (no judgment if you don’t want kids!).

This is a day you will remember because it was different, intimate and personal to you two and to your love.

That sounds like us!

That sounds great!

How does it work?

My process is quite easy and I am here for you every step of the way.

Everything can be customizable according to where you are at, what you want and what you need.

1) Contact me

Filling up my contact form is the best way to reach out to me. I will do my best to answer you the same day. Include some details about your partner and yourself as well as what you have in mind for you adventure wedding, small wedding or elopement.

2) Introduction call

We set a date and I will call you after your email in order to learn more about you two and introduce myself. We will talk about your dream day and your expectations. We will also talk about how I work and what I can bring for your day.

3) Book me for your date

If you and I think we can be a good fit, I will send you a contract and a quote.

You will have to pay 30% of the quote in order to book me in for your date. I will block out the day prior and the day after your wedding / elopement at the same time for no charge – that way, you will have my 100% for your day.

You don’t need to have the EXACT location for this, an area is fine, I can help you for the location choosing as well, but after you booked me.

4) Preparations begins

Once the contract is signed and the retainer is paid, I can help you on a various point for your organisation.

I will send you a list of places, I can help you find a list of lodging around the places, some local vendors, a list of activities.

I will also reach out for the permits you need to aquire if you haven’t already taken care of that.

5) Timelime

About six to four weeks before your elopement / wedding, I will reach out to you with a timeline of your day that we can go over, change, modify.

6) The week before

The week before your elopement / wedding, I will ask that you pay 60% of the quote. Why? Because you don’t want to have to pay me on the day of your wedding! I will ask for the remaining before delivering your gallery.

I will also send you various emails like your gear list to not forget or the timeline reminder.

7) THE BIG DAY!

YEAY! Finally, it’s here! Enjoy every moment of it. And remember, if it doesn’t stick to the timeline exactly, if the weather is not what you expected it to be, it’s ok. It is still the biggest day of your lives and we are going to make the best out of it!

8) Slowing down

Enjoy every moment of your new life together.

I will send you 3 to 5 images under 5 days after your elopement and you will receive the full gallery within 8 to 10 weeks.

I will send you a final invoice of the remaining 10% before I send you the full gallery link with download passwords.

You will be able to purchase some prints through me and if you want an album, I can also make one for you*

That’s about it!

International Elopements &

Adventure Weddings Packages

International has lots of different meaning depending on where you are from. For me, home is Canada (and old home is France!) so International would be anywhere else than those two.

I am a HUGE traveller and I lived in 3 different countries. I love exploring and planning and the unknown is not scary to me. If you want to hit a back country road for your wedding or fly to Antartica, I will follow!

Canada Elopements

Before moving to Alberta, I lived for four years in Montreal, Quebec. I have visited a lot of Quebec (my favourite spot being Charlevoix) and I know when and what to visit there.

Yukon is also very high on my list. Did you know that my last project as a web developer was to work on the website of Travel Yukon?

Anyways, my goal for 2024 is to visit all the provinces and territories of Canada as an expression of my gratitude towards this beautiful country that accepted me as a citizen.

Alberta & BC Elopements

I moved from Montreal, Quebec, to Calgary, Alberta so I could be closer to the mountains.

I have been working for almost 8 months now in Lake Louise (in Banff National Park) to photograph couples (and families) so the area has no secrets to me!

I hike a lot and paddle board a lot and what I dislike above all is when I am surrounded by tons of people! This is why I have been looking for the most intimate and secluded spots around those beautiful Canadian Rockies.
