Glacier National Park Elopement Photographer

There are few places on earth as beautiful as Glacier National Park, and when it comes to elopements, there is no better place to tie the knot! I am so lucky to be a Glacier National Park elopement photographer and capture my couples’ love and joy on their wedding day.

Eloping in Glacier National Park is an unforgettable experience. The scenery is breathtaking, and there is nothing like getting married, surrounded by the beauty of nature. I feel so honored to be able to capture these special moments for my couples and to help them create lasting memories of their elopement.

What to expect when booking an Elopement with Elopement Photographer, HaleyJPhoto

When you invest in me to capture your special day, you get so much more than someone to stand there and take photos. You’re getting someone who has prepped your day in advance and created a whole session timeline tailored to what’s most important to you.

You’ll get someone who can make the right decision in seconds when something doesn’t work out. It’ll help keep your dress clean, fix out-of-place hair, and so much more. I do not take 40+ weddings May-October like most photographers. My pricing reflects the quality of images you will be given and top-tier service.

I find giving my client 110% important and can only do that by not overbooking myself. I do not outsource any editing or emails. You get all of me and the fiery passion I have for my couples!

How to make your Glacier National Park Elopement unforgettable

Your elopement is a day that you will never forget. In fact, I know there can be a lot of pressure to make the day perfect. Here are a couple of tips to make your experience unforgettable and to ensure it’s captured on camera.

First and foremost, show up completely authentically. In front of my camera, I don’t want you to be anyone but yourself.

The very best images I get come from couples who are authentic to themselves, are great listeners, have positive energy, and are willing to try new things. In my experience, the deepest photos I get come from people letting go of what they think they should look like, getting in the moment, and letting me do the work instead. This is a time to be fully in your little elopement couple bubble. Fully trusting your photographer can be hard, but know they want the very best outcome for you.

Most photographers have great awareness of energy and can feel pushback. If something makes you really uncomfortable, please express that. Unquestionably, getting a little uncomfortable in front of the camera is completely normal. In this case, take a deep breath and enjoy your time with your partner/family; I promise if you have fun, it will shine through in your photos.
