When you think elopement, what comes to mind? Traveling to the western United States to check out Zion or Yosemite? Going across the ocean to Ireland or Italy to run through endless fields and exceptional food?
GUESS WHAT?! We are overlooking a chain of islands right here in the United States where you can escape to an adventurous elopement filled with fun, good food, sunny weather and silky sand – the Florida Keys. The Keys are a string of 1,700 islands (🤯) that span over 120 miles off the southern tip of Florida in the Atlantic Ocean. These islands are known for their watersports, food, and history. Out of these many islands there is so much to explore and be done. I created a list of my top 5 cities in the Florida Keys that offer a unique experience: Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine Key, and Key West.

When you get engaged a few weeks before your Florida trip you make sure to get engagement photos done B came across my Instagram profile days before their trip to the Panhandle and I luckily had some availability to capture the sweetness that is their relationship while on their vacation.

It always makes me so happy with couples are down for sunrise sessions, especially during the summer months when the beach is always so crowded during the day and specifically at sunset! Sunrise on the panhandle is the only time that you can truly get the beach mostly to yourself with the other few that decide to get up when the sun does!
S + C were up for it though. We met on the beach right before sunrise and dang it was a beautiful one!

What an incredible place! I connected with D on Instagram a few months prior to heading out to Wyoming to location scout and I am so glad we did! I even got to meet their two little girls and spend time with their family.
D & D met up with me right outside of Grand Tetons National Park before I headed into the park for the day. The previous day the sky was so clear and the landscape so prominent, but when I woke up this morning it was completely foggy and there was a chill in the air. I was a little worried that the fog would hide the mountains too much, but I think it turned out to be a beautiful morning and even cleared up as the morning went on!

L and I became good friends last year, in 2020, when we were both new to Destin, Florida. L having moved from out west and me from Tennessee. In a short span she became a good friend to me and it was so bittersweet when she moved, but I couldn’t be more happy for her and J!
Fast forward to 2021 she moved and is living in Washington with her person. She and J met while in college, but continued to keep in touch years later. I love the love they have for each other and was so honored to capture it while in Seattle visiting and getting to know J better. They were the best hosts and it was amazing getting to see the city through their eyes. L and I even took some time to go hike at Mt. Rainer National Park! I might be biased, but L only deserves the best and J is absolutely that for her!

I am not normally an early morning person, but Bo and Faith were so fun to hangout with and made getting up early worth it! Plus I love that they decided to have a charcuterie board at 7:30 AM (never too early for one!) It is always cool learning about those I work with because sometimes we figure out that they live close to where I went to college:)

Eloping in New Orleans? If you rush into this without any thought there is a good chance you will end up in NOLA at a ridiculously busy or sweltering hot time, which if that is what you want then more power to you! There are three things to think about when planning your New Orleans elopement: time of year, where to stay and how you want to spend your day.
