MAKE
THE DAY YOURS

Whether you choose hiking up a kick-ass mountain, off-roading to a secluded location, or having a simple picnic on your elopement day, we would love to be there to capture those important moments.

We understand the intimidating task of developing a perfect day-- However, it should always be free of pressure and constraints. This is not an all day photoshoot-- 
This is an experience. 

COLLECTIONS & PRICES

Couples should do exactly what they want for their elopement day.

WHAT WE'RE ABOUT

We're Heather & Mike- your friendly guides & expert photographers.

The thought of giving couples a once-in-a-lifetime experience means the world to us.

Our goal is to grant you the opportunity to make your own selections and not feel confined by the restrictions that the world places on couples during traditional weddings. It is something we wish for ourselves.

We are proud followers of Leave No Trace and are honored to help educate our couples on the importance of practicing the principles, especially for your wedding day.

READ MORE ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS

"Heather is a wonderful photographer that we would recommend to anyone. She made us so comfortable and she was the most perfect photographer. She managed to capture the best moments and even included some very funny photos. We love her positive attitude and great energy."

Carito & Carlos

"Heather was the first, and then the only photographer we spoke to for our wedding! Awesome, flexible, talented, fun, and professional - can't think of what else you would need from a photographer! She stayed with us all day, and captured SO MANY amazing moments from the wedding!"

Angela & Jose

"On the day of the wedding, she was ready to go with positivity and helpfulness. She was a complete professional at taking pictures & initiative on great shots I hadn't even thought of...she also took the lead on putting on each of the boutonnieres! Heather took every shot we asked, and went out of her way to suggest photos."

M&J

"I found Michael when looking for a photographer to take my wedding photos in Hawaii on my honeymoon. I'm so glad I found him, he captured everything I could have dreamed of and so much more! He is really talented at what he does!"

Galilee & Colin

The Seeking Venture team will provide the guidance needed for a stress-free adventure that you will cherish endlessly.

We want to leave nature better than we found it, and this is one small way we can make that happen thanks to you!

Advice & Help Every Step of the Way

We promise to help you with everything you need to make sure you feel ready and that your vision is being heard. Our planning process will make you feel secure in knowing you have hired the right people. You can message us anytime for any question that may arise!

The  questionnaires we send out will help us understand who you are as a couple, and give better insight into what we suggest for your day. These are fun--not some boring homework assignment!

We'll send you a personalized location list: We spend endless hours researching, scouting & planning, including suggesting backup locations and activity ideas. We'll assist you with figuring out what permits you may need and will even cover the cost of your photo permit!

This will give you a better vision of "the big picture" & how your day will go. We'll make sure to do our best to put all your wants packed within the day, or two if you decide to do multiple days!

These two helpful guides will get your prepped & ready to have the best day possible! No memorization is required- refer to them when you need some new inspiration!

We'll help you with suggestions on what type of vendors would be helpful for your day.

We are friendly, professional photographers who want to give you the best day:

You'll receive our personal touch the entire time: 

Our imagery is unlimited

Aw, the memories are forever!

You are not just hiring a random person to take some photos. This is our livelihoods that we have spent endless hours over the years trying to perfect for our couples. You should feel like you are hanging out with a friend, not some stiff, lame photographer who you'll never speak to again because they were outsourced by some photo factory. Which brings us to our next point...

Enjoy the cherished memories of your wedding day for the rest of your lives and have those moments passed down to each generation.

We don't outsource your photos to strangers to do the work for us. We are the ones who edit your photos, not a retouching service charging pennies per image for bad edits. Your photos mean more to us than that.

You will always be given as many photos as we can give you. We curate each wedding to every couple and would never put a cap on the amount of images we send you, nor limit the amount you are allowed to download from your gallery.

FAQ

Seeking  More  Information?

How would you describe your photographic style?

Many photographers describe their style as either 'light & airy' or 'dark & moody'. We don't place ourselves into either category and think it's sort of silly to do so. Style is a lot more than the 'look' of a photo. For us, our style is a laid back journalistic approach. We are there to not only document, but offer guidance when necessary in order to let the moment unfold. We are a bit traditional in the sense that we think it's important to take getting ready pictures, as it's a huge moment before you begin this important day. Being able to capture your love story the authentic way is a huge part of our style. As we edit, we keep our photographs true-to-life in terms of color and proper exposure as well. Take a look at our work and decide for yourself if you like our style! 

What happens if there is bad weather? 

Aww nature! Sometimes it's not 'perfect.' So what if it's drizzling? Let's embrace it! However, if the weather gets so severe that our lives are in danger or our gear can get ruined, we will move to our Plan B that we will have previously agreed upon during our planning sessions.

What are your travel fees for my destination wedding? 

Our travel costs are already priced into our collections & we book all our own travel, so it's one less thing for you to worry about. You will not get any surprise bills from us after your wedding!

Do we have to go hiking for our elopement?

Not at all! Your elopement should be whatever you want it to be. We consider ourselves adventure photographers, but your adventure can be literally anything. It is not a requirement to hike miles on a trail for your wedding day. Often times we can always find easily accessible spots right off the road that do not require that much effort to get to so you can still enjoy some killer scenery!

Do you shoot 1 hour only elopements? I just want photos of my ceremony...

Your wedding day isn't just the vows and still deserves the same quality of coverage as someone having a more traditional wedding. This is still your day and the date will be your anniversary forever. Just because you're eloping doesn't mean your wedding doesn't mean as much. Therefore we do not document vows only and the minimum we book for local elopements is 4 hours.

Get in touch with us below so we can send you detailed pricing for your best day ever!

What is your dream way to say 'I Do'?
