As an intimate elopement and courthouse wedding photographer in Dallas, I specialize in capturing authentic, joyful moments for modern couples.

intimate at home wedding photographer

From the getting-ready moments to the ceremony and post-nuptial portraits, I'll be there to capture it all with a keen eye for lighting, composition, and those unscripted instances of pure joy. My elopement and courthouse wedding packages offer affordable, all-inclusive coverage tailored to your needs. So, if you're looking for a laid-back photographer to tell your intimate love story, I'd love to connect! Book a consultation, and let's start planning your dream intimate celebration.

IT'S ALL IN THE THOUGHTFUL DETAILS.

 

For intimate celebrations like elopements and courthouse weddings, getting to know you as a couple is everything. I need that personal connection to capture those authentic, joyful photos you'll cherish forever. After your initial inquiry, our first step is a laidback phone or video call. This is where you can share all about you two lovebirds - your story, your vision for your special day, and all the quirks that make you unique. It's also how you'll get to know me and my warm, easygoing photography style. Making that real connection upfront ensures I'm the perfect fit for your intimate celebration!

 

I want this to be authentically YOU. We can ditch all those traditional wedding expectations for intimate celebrations like elopements and courthouse weddings where it's just you, your partner, and me. If you wake up on the big day and decide, "Let's grab brunch at that cozy cafe instead of doing a first look," I'm ready to roll with it! There are no stiff timelines, no fussing over traditions - just an easygoing experience focused on savoring every spontaneous, unscripted moment together as newlyweds. Maybe that means portraits amidst the city lights after your ceremony, followed by a low-key pizza party with your closest crew. The possibilities are wide open when not bound by a huge guest list! I aim to give you both the creative freedom to celebrate your love authentically without any rigid expectations weighing you down. If, mid-way through, you decide to switch locations or add an impromptu stop for ice cream, I'm game! I'll be with my camera (probably happily chomping on a big scoop of chocolate ice cream), blending into the background to candidly document all the laughter, happy tears, and quirky little moments that make your love story unique. So let's get creative and craft the intimate celebration that feels 100% "you!"
