When did your wedding day become about everyone else? It seems like so many couples spend all that time planning, worrying about pleasing everyone, and stressing themselves out - only to end their wedding day realizing they barely got to enjoy it, and that it wasn't really what they wanted, at all. Eloping is about reclaiming your wedding day - to make sure you actually get to have a good time marrying the love of your life. This is the beginning of your marriage - and shouldn't it start off exactly the way you want it to?

Your wedding. Your rules.

You knew a traditional wedding wasn't for you - so you decided to throw tradition away, forget the pressure and expectations, and do your wedding, your way.

You're a little untraditional


If you want a pristine white dress, or a clean suit, at the end of your wedding day - an adventure elopement may not be right for you. Picking up dirt is part of the adventure!

You don't mind getting a little dirty


The mountains call your name in a way a stuffy ballroom never could. You see yourself getting married amongst mountain peaks, or ocean waves, or wildflower fields.

You prefer nature to a venue

I just can’t say enough good things about Sam. I still get emotional thinking about how she literally helped make our elopement dreams come true. None of it would have been possible without her. She was extremely kind, helpful, and supportive through out the entire process. She perfectly guided us though the planning and heard every detail we envisioned for our day. I would do it a million times over if I could.

Not only was the planning all done for us, she also took the most astonishing photos I’ve ever seen, and again, still has me in tears every time I look at them, and we only have gotten a sneak peek!!! We truly hit the jackpot finding Sam and Bryt. Look no further if you are in need of an elopement planner/photographer. I am forever grateful for them.

Sam and Bryt made our small destination elopement shine in the photos. I just adore Sam’s eye and editing style- you will be so happy if you book her! She has great energy, is thoughtful and up for any adventure!

We got to go on an adventure shot the day after our ceremony as part of the elopement package! Sam was helpful not only with the photographs but I’m the planning process as well. She’s the perfect person if you’re doing a destination wedding!

Samantha went above & beyond to capture such a beautiful moment! Months of planning, organizing and scoping out the perfect spot to hold the shoot went into this.

Within a few hours after the photo shoot she was able to provide us with a few sneak peaks 😍 her work is phenomenal and her personality is such a joy to be around. You could never go wrong booking a session with her!

- Anna & Sarah

Samantha is an incredible photographer. She made us feel so comfortable, told us how to pose, what to do and made sure we had fun doing it.

I wish I would have known her sooner so she could have done our wedding. All I know is you won’t go wrong hiring Samantha as your photographer. 🌈

Whether you are looking for an LGBTQ+ Friendly photographer or not, seriously it should be Sam + Bryt. We had THE BEST experience we could have asked for from this duo not only for our engagement photos but also our wedding. They are attentive, fun, and professional. Every question I had was answered and then some, both leading up to the event and on our wedding day. They are flexible and really took the time to know us so that they could reflect that in our photos. Every photo we have received has been incredible. They truly captured US for who we were and gave us coaching without uncomfortable posing. We will use them for every big event in our lives forever! I cannot recommend them enough!
