Hey, I know you’ve seen a hundred photographer sites at this point and its overwhelming. Let’s cut to the chase and let me tell you why I think we’d be a good match for each other.
You deserve a photographer you can trust and depend on (spoiler alert, that’s me) because everything is so uncertain. I get it, I’m planning a wedding during a pandemic too! I’m an empath; I feel all the feels and I want to make sure you feel yours too. I see moments before they’re fully unfolding. And that makes me a dang good photographer (*toot toot*, yeah I said it).
Schedule your free consult call or chat via email, whatever works best for your schedule! We get to know each other and figure out where you're at in the process with an overall vision for you day.
We happy dance after making it official with a retainer ($1000), contract and a package specific to your needs.
I send over either the Wedding or Elopement Welcome Guide (each 80+ pages of straight up gold specific to your type of celebration) and some questions to help me get to know you and your ideas even more.
Planning progresses with me there every step of the way answering questions even before you have them. Custom timelines, location brainstorming, travel logistics, family portrait lists... don't worry, I've got it.
You get married, it's magical.
I can’t even put into words how special Brogan is because 1) she’s just too amazing and 2) it would make me cry thinking of how she made our day so perfect. Brogan was in complete control and yet was so laid back and fun that it made our day amazing and the photos were even better than I could have imagined. I changed the plan up on her at least 20 times and she was so accommodating and helpful with every one. She picked out the most beautiful place for our ceremony, and I know she captured every beautiful moment perfectly. She feels like a part of my family! You would be crazy not to book her!
Here to help you curate your experience based on what you want and value most. I'm all about abundance mindset here! I'm here to tell you that you can have everything you want. As an wedding and elopement photographer based in Oregon, I've photographed intimate elopements from the tops of mountains all the way down to the coast. Weddings surround by all the friends and family, and elopements with dogs as witnesses. You can be married on a mountain, in a vineyard, barefoot next to a bonfire on the beach, as long as you have each other - that's the love story I’m here for.
The most beautiful thing about love, marriage, and weddings is that there is no perfect recipe. You can be married by yourselves, with a hundred people, with your dogs as your witnesses, on a mountain top or barefoot in the sand and everything is still absolutely perfect as long as you have each other. And that’s the love story we’re here for.
I choose to build my pricing very specifically catered to you. The pricing you see down below are a good starting point. Weddings are different, elopements are different, people are different. Your job is not to know what the heck coverage length you will need for your day, that’s my job. My process of getting to know you and hearing your ideas and values, allows me (as the expert and bomb ass photog) to guide you to what will fit best.
Options are endless here in the Pacific Northwest for elopements and intimate weddings. Our beaches have forests, our lakes have mountain views, and you can even have all of those in one day within a couple of hours. Because the options are so endless, I create custom pricing options based on your priorities and vision!
+ All the usual important photo stuff, obvi.
+ Personalized location lists and research, timeline consults, custom questionnaires, planning logistics, etc.
+ 80+ page Elopement Planning Guide answering all your questions before you even have them
+ All of my travel to/from locations
+ Gifts and fun surprises along the way
I also offer a bunch of other fun add-ons we can include in your package if they fit your celebration! These are things we can chat about during our no-pressure consult call to customize the perfect coverage.
Getting married in Hawaii? It is my favorite place on earth and I'm there frequently. I have special offers for weddings and elopements on island so reach out!
Newly engaged but haven't gotten far in the planning yet? Going on vacation and want to document this special moment in time? Growing a little babe and wanting to celebrate the bump? New house? New puppy? So many options here! You deserve to remember things exactly as they are.
From the moment I reached out via email to receiving our final gallery, Brogan was quick to respond & a pleasure to work with. She took the time to get to know us and understand the vision for our out of state adventure elopement - she even helped us select a location! Her work is beautiful (as you can see) and so are her editing choices- she truly captured the essence of our magical day and we now have amazing photos to remember it forever. Partnering with Brogan for your special day is an investment you won't regret!

$1000 down to secure your date then the remaining balance is split into a custom payment plan. Most default to a monthly payment to help budget, but I set it up however works best for your situation. Remaining balance is due in full 30 days prior to the event. All payable electronically with any debit or credit card.
How Does Payment Work?
I'd basically have to be hospitalized for that to happen. But in a worst case scenario, I reach out to the hefty network of photographers I'm friends with and trust whole-heartedly and find the perfect stand in. I then edit the photos in my signature style and handle the rest from there.
What Happens If You Can’t Be At Our Wedding?
If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that some things are out of our control. For the most part as long as we find a date that works mutually, I'm flexible with reschedules but a small fee may apply in certain situations (this will be outlined in detail in the contract. If you cancel completely or we can't find a reschedule date that works mutually, you forfeit your retainer.
What If We Cancel/Resched Our Date?
Then we dance in the rain! Living in the PNW, it is never a bad idea to have a backup plan. But also don't let it stress you out or start obsessing over the weather forecast a month out. We will make it work with what we're giving and it will be beautiful. I promise some of your favorite galleries and images you have seen on my page were taken on rainy days and you can't even tell. Other sessions we reschedule as needed.
