It’s that time of year again! The best of 2023 adventure elopement and small weddings blog post! I honestly can’t believe the year has already come and gone. As always, I’m feeling so grateful to be a part of these special moments in people’s lives in such incredible locations around the world. It really is such a blessing!
This year I photographed elopements and intimate weddings in Oregon, California, Washington, Hawaii, and Alaska! From the majestic coastline in the Pacific Northwest to the high desert mountains in Central Oregon to the glaciers in Alaska, I experienced every weather condition possible and a huge variety of climate zones. Torrential downpours and forest fires kept us on our toes, but we always found a solution and sometimes a change of plans became my favorite experiences and photos! I absolutely love new experiences and seeing new places. It fuels my creativity and I’m honored to share these magical places with my elopement couples.
Here is one of my favorite reviews from my last elopement of the year in Maui, Hawaii! Tears of joy were streaming down my face while reading this and my heart was bursting with gratitude. Thank you thank you thank you Danielle + Daniel!
“Naomi was the photographer for our intimate adventure elopement in Maui, Hawai’i in November 2023 and we seriously could not be happier. She is truly a radiant personality with an artistic eye and adventurous spirit— the perfect combination of characteristics for an adventure photographer! She made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day and every moment leading up to it. She is very knowledgable about the island— which spots are are most aesthetically pleasing for photos, what time of day gets the best lighting, which local vendors are best to work with, how to be prepared for the islands micro climates/ weather surprises, and so much more. We pretty much spent the whole day together exploring several gorgeous spots around Maui leading up to our beach ceremony and we had so much fun. She had our pictures back so quickly I couldn’t believe it and we can’t stop looking at them. They are truly like something you would see in a magazine. I’ve never felt more beautiful. I am so happy we were able to work with Naomi on our special day and equally as happy that we were able to meet such a genuinely kind and caring person during our island adventure. 12/10 would recommend for photography in Maui. Thank you so much for everything, Naomi!!” – Danielle + Daniel
