Ditching Tradition for the (Off)Road Less Traveled 

Eloping your way is all that matters–whether that’s an off-road wedding in the Utah desert, on pavement in your favorite national park, or exploring a trail together on your own two feet.
I’m here to help you create, experience, and always remember the Utah elopement of your dreams.

What is an adventure elopement?

There are tons of adventure elopement definitions floating around out there on the internet. But do you want my opinion? The only definition of adventure elopement that matters is yours.

All you need for an adventure elopement is the love of your life, a passion for an intentional wedding, and a desire to explore and appreciate the great outdoors.

The rest of that formula is totally up to you! You and your love can:
  • Embark on an off-road adventure in a 4x4 vehicle to a remote, wild Utah location
  • Hike a secluded trail to the perfect elopement ceremony spot
  • Indulge in the ultimate picnic while soaking in stunning Utah scenery
  • Explore Utah’s state and national parks to your hearts’ content

And that’s just a few suggestions. There’s no one-size-fits-all formula for the perfect-for-you elopement day.
So, ask yourself–what does an adventure look like to you two?

Imagine turning off the paved road, onto a dirt path, and heading out to a spot in the middle of the Utah wilderness that’s all yours. When you and your partner choose an off-road elopement, you choose to adventure, access, and privacy–not to mention any level of thrill-seeking you’re after. Whether you’re looking to have an epic off-road wedding where you tackle the toughest lines, or you’re simply looking for an off-pavement adventure that’s stress-free and sweet, taking your elopement off-road could be the perfect pick.

Hiking elopement adventures

Hiking elopements are iconic for a reason. If you and your partner love to explore the outdoors, set your sights on beautiful views, and let your own two feet lead you to stunning spots, I highly recommend a hiking elopement in Utah. Iconic viewpoints, amazing trails, and secret spots are my specialty! Whether you’re seeking a challenging but amazing hike for your first adventure as a married couple or you just want to explore to your heart’s content, I’ve got the perfect trail waiting for you.

Zion National Park Wedding

Zion National Park is the ultimate destination for couples seeking an iconic Utah elopement. The good news? Zion National Park is my backyard–and that means I’ve got tons of advice, pro tips, and amazing spots for you to explore on your wedding day. You can explore, hike, off-road, or any other combination of amazing activities for an epic elopement day in Zion NP.

"she blended into the background while we adventured & explored"

Casandrah is not only the best photographer we could have dreamt to have for our wedding day, but she’s also one of the most genuine, kindhearted people we’ve ever met. She made us feel calm and helped us pull everything together so quickly. She listened to what our vision was for our day, made suggestions, and once we were decided on a plan, she even took initiative to book our off-road adventure. She made us both feel so comfortable, she honestly felt like a friend we’d known for years.
She’s so good at what she does - she blended into the background while we adventured & explored (those were our favorite photos), and she gave us direction when we needed it to get a few shots that were a little more posed, all while sharing some laughs. We’re so, so grateful Casandrah was a part of the most important day of our life, not only as a photographer capturing it through her lens, but also as a new friend making memories with us that’ll last a lifetime.

"She exceeded my expectations and I am so grateful for the memories"

Casandrah is perfect. We were looking at photographers and we didn’t really know what we wanted. We saw one of her off road photos and it helped us visualize and identify our wants.

We ended up doing our traditional wedding with family and friends on a Thursday and on Friday we went wheeling! It was just us and our close family. It was perfect. She exceeded my expectations and I am so grateful for the memories I get to relive whenever I want!
