Whether you always knew you would elope or you are now considering an elopement due to our current world events, you deserve to have the day of your dreams!  

I believe your elopement should be more than just a quick ceremony, but rather a complete day custom tailored to your unique love story and personalities. I want to capture all of your sweet moments that start with getting ready all the way through celebratory drinks & cake! I want to ensure you have your dream bouquet or the ceremony installation you envisioned or the vintage car you imagined riding in. The best part about elopements is that there are absolutely no rules. If that means you want to end the day with ice cream, or rollerskating with your partner, or cocktails on a beautiful rooftop, the sky is literally the limit and I am here to help you bring your vision to life!

No matter how intimate your day ends up being, YOUR LOVE IS NOT SMALL and it should be celebrated!

Personal connections are my jam! Once I verify that we are available, I will schedule a video consultation so that we can meet face to face and chat about all the things! I want to learn your love story, hear about your favorite things and get excited about your elopement plans! I can offer suggestions to help customize your day to the things you love most and guide you on what other amazing wedding professionals to bring on board. We will even go over an elopement day timeline so you know exactly how things will go!

step two

I am here for you all along your elopement planning journey! Never hesitate to reach out with anything you need, from suggestions on where to stay to where to have a fancy meal later that night. You will never be left feeling like you are on your own! A month before elopement day we will finalize your timeline, go over a detail checklist, and I will connect with any other vendors to ensure your day runs smoothly!

step three

On your elopement day, I am not JUST there to document your day but will play an active role in making sure everything is relaxed, fun and the most magical ever. Plus, you will never have to worry about being awkward in front of the camera as I’ll be guiding you every step of the way with fun actions and prompts that will result in natural giggles and epic portraits alike!

step four

4-6 weeks after your elopement, your images will be ready for viewing! I will schedule a Reveal where we will view your finalized images together and I will walk you through exactly how to use your online gallery.

Our elopement in Savannah was absolutely wonderful! Izzy was super helpful in recommending hotels to stay at, places to eat, and things to do. She is attentive to detail, made us feel comfortable, and took care of everything (which took away a lot of the stress). She  was really awesome at matching our personalities to the areas she chose to use for our photos. We trusted her to have complete creative control on the locations and the compositions and the photos came out stunning. She absolutely helped make our special day special. If you are thinking about Izzy as your photographer, don't think - JUST DO. You will not be disappointed in not only her ability to be an absolute boss of a photographer but a sweet wonderful friend on your special day.

My fiancé and I had a saying - we'd weather the storm together, always and forever. On the day we eloped that motto took on a whole new meaning and though none of us imagined we'd literally be weathering a storm (Hurricane Matthew), Izzy and the team that crafted our elopement pulled it off and executed the most beautiful and memorable day of our lives - I cannot say enough wonderful things about Izzy!

We wanted our photos to feel more editorial than the traditional wedding style, and we trusted Izzy to deliver. We had never been to Savannah before, so it was incredibly relieving knowing Izzy was going to take us into her hands once we arrived and make sure we were taken care of.  Our Elopement was the most magical and memorable day, and thanks to Izzy we have it captured forever.

Once I contacted Izzy, I knew she was the one!  Izzy responded to our emails in a timely manner and her suggestions for other vendors were spot on. Her Associate, Hannah, was actually our photographer the day of the wedding and we had a great time with her! Our pictures were ready much sooner than expected, which was a pleasant surprise. As soon as we opened the link and viewed the first picture, I started "happy crying" all over again! it was magical. Hannah captured our special day perfectly and Izzy puts an extra little touch on everything she does! In the end, it's about creating beautiful photos to have and always remember the tiny moments that might be forgotten. We highly recommend Izzy to anyone!

Izzy went above and beyond to document our special day. We knew she’d be the perfect person for our intimate elopement. She brought the perfect energy to add to our excitement and spent the entire wedding day with us making sure no special moment went undocumented. She even got into the mountain river with us for some really fun shots after the ceremony. The photos are outstanding and we were elated to share our wedding day with family and friends via a slideshow she put together for us set to some of the songs she remembered us dancing to throughout the day.  Izzy has a heart of gold, and brings a unique perspective and energy to her shoots. Truly a memorable experience and we hands down would hire Izzy again in a heartbeat!

My husband  had the pleasure of seeing Izzy’s beautiful work at a friend’s wedding + when we got together he knew she was the photographer we wanted to use even before we started preparing for our wedding. Because of the praises he sang, I actually hired Izzy to do a boudoir shoot and then I was hooked, too. Izzy has a beautiful eye and an even more beautiful personality. We actually ended up eloping at a concert hall before seeing a favorite band - we we did the elopement, had dinner, and then went to the concert together. It was like hanging out with an old friend even during the photography part! No pressure, very laid back and causal, but tailored to the individual’s needs. She even loaned me a fur wrap to wear and brought cute umbrellas which ended up being a lifesaver since there was basically a hurricane that day! Needless to say, we highly recommend her! The images she captures are so unique and inspiring, very artful!
