Intimate Wedding and Elopement Photography + Videography for Adventurous Romantics

"Love is the closest thing we have to magic"

so you can relive them again and again


Documenting your

intimate moments & breathtaking scenes





Those rolling tears, double chin laughs, shaky voices as you share your vows...you don't get those moments back. The worst part? It all goes by as fast as they say.

We are here to help you live in the moment. We are the ones making sure all of those emotive scenes are documented so you don't have to worry about anything other than being 100% present with your person. Let us take care of capturing this epic day while you squeeze each others butts and watch the sunset on a mountain top together. 

From our very first call, we take the time to understand your relationship, the flavor and spice that makes your story special, and what kind of experience YOU want to have. Within this process, our favorite part is getting to know you. Why? Because anyone can just show up, click a button, and create beautiful images. We are invested in crafting images and films that are tailored to your unique love story. We want these memories to feel like you, we want you to have an experience unlike anyone else's!

Because your photos + video should reflect who you really are. And who's better at creating that than your friends?

“Not only did our photos & video turn us into puddles, they became our friends and always made sure we were making uninfluenced decisions.”

We’re obsessed with love. We're obsessed with our couples. We're obsessed with our craft. This lil trifecta is at the heart of what we do and where helping our couples create their own wedding adventure is stemmed from! 

We love shooting intimate weddings and elopements where the decisions made were organically YOURS. Gone are the days of appeasing everyone else. No mo'! We are here to give you badass photos + video AND to help advocate for what you want the start of your marriage to look and feel like. Whether that is on a coastal cliff, an island in the Puget Sound we have to kayak to, or an urban rooftop, we will be there to support and guide as much as you need us to. That includes helping you find vendors, getting your permits, location scouting/brainstorming, timeline stuff...the list goes on.

Think of us as your advocates, your teammates, and your friends that happen to be really good with a camera! 


Hey! We’re Arielle & Ben

and we're in love, too.

Love Notes

I don’t even know where to start with Arielle and Ben! They are truly, truly amazing humans, and such talented photographers! My fiancé and I didn’t hesitate for a second to hire them for our wedding after we talked to them for the first time and looked at their work! Planning a wedding is already stressful enough, and even more so when you have to reschedule amid a pandemic (which we have had to do!). Arielle and Ben have been so supportive and flexible the whole way, and we couldn’t be more grateful. 

Carlota & Tim

One specific moment that continues to bring me to tears when I think about it is during a hectic moment while getting ready, Arielle paused, held my shoulder for a second, and asked, “Are you living in the moment?” Those gentle words brought me back to what was happening, my wedding! I stopped worrying about the details and how everyone was doing, and just enjoyed myself. So, when we say that Ben and Arielle are some of the kindest and most genuine people we know, it is not an exaggeration. We couldn’t have had such an amazing wedding without them, and we plan on keeping them as our photographers as we grow our family in the future!

Hallie & Steven

Both Ben & Arielle have an incredible sense of adventure and are up for anything! We hiked to a remote waterfall for our engagement and through a pretty overgrown trail to some cliffs on the Oregon Coast for our wedding. Not only were they excited and up for the adventure but they were so kind to help our parents down the steepest part of the climb, fix hair, wipe tears and lipstick, etc. It made us feel so comfortable to have friends rather than strangers photographing us and we are so grateful to have them capture our special moments in life!

Arielle & Mike
