Pssst...it’s okay to make your wedding all about you 

(and what you love)

the great outdoors awaits!

Grab your hiking boots
(we’ll bring the trail mix)

As your adventure elopement photographers, we’re there to help you plan everything from start to finish...

Whether you’re a local like us or coming from another state, like over half our couples do. We’ll create an adventure that feels like you, whether that’s summiting a mountain, canoeing across an alpine lake, or soaking in the views at a drive-up overlook (hint: we know the best ones).

Once everything’s organized, we’ll hit the trails to document it all—we’re talking vibrant photos that balance you with the epic landscapes that surround you. And along the way, we promise we’ll have a lot of fun.

Maybe you’re not keen on being in the spotlight all day, or the price tag is daunting, or you’re just not into huge hotel ballrooms with funky carpets. (Us either.)

Instead, you catch yourself dreaming about something more relaxed, more intimate, something where you can connect with nature. Maybe you want to get married just the two of you, or maybe you want to gather a small group of your loved ones for a sunset ceremony and a gourmet dinner.

But when it comes to figuring out the where, when, and how of an outdoor adventure wedding, you need someone else on your team.

As soon as you got down to planning your wedding, you realized something:

You’re not that into the idea of a “traditional” wedding with tons of guests.

we’re a team of experienced elopement photographers, each with our own local expertise and outdoor passions.

With a collective 50+ years of experience photographing and organizing adventure weddings, we’ve learned more than a few things, like:

Which trails are perfect for your energy level, your desired vibe, and the weather that day

How to come up with a plan B, C, and even D in case Mother Nature isn’t feeling it

How to pack a wedding dress so it doesn’t wrinkle during a 5-mile hike

Exactly how much we can fit into your wedding day timeline without overdoing it—and how to keep spirits high as we move from one thing to the next

How to strike that perfect balance in photos between incredible landscapes and the couple at the center of the story (that’s you)

Originally from Missouri, Mollie fell in love with hiking in college and set a course for the Pacific Northwest. She now lives in the Snoqualmie Valley with her husband and their Bernese Mountain Dog, Scout (aka the unofficial BTP mascot). In 2018, she founded Between the Pine, and she’s since hiked thousands of miles with our couples and taken more photos than she can count. She travels regularly to Kauai, her home away from home, for the incredible culture, the amazing landscapes, and also the coconut shave ice.

Amy’s photography career kicked off in Jackson Hole in her ski-bum era, when a neighbor asked her to photograph a wedding, and the rest is history. She lives on the Olympic Peninsula, and when she’s not out on the trails, she takes advantage of her location to ski and surf. The landscapes she sees as a photographer often inspire her work as a painter, too. Amy’s also our in-house photo editor!

Whitney started out doing photography for outdoor + pet brands, but once she started photographing people, she was hooked. She lives near Vail, where the REAL mountains are (that’s a quote, btw), and she loves elopements because they leave room for spontaneity. She loves to climb 14ers with her husband and pups, and in the winter she always makes time for skiing.

Our Values

Love the design of this website? Our branding? That’s Sophie, founder of Mod Bird Studio, at work. She works her magic to give Between the Pine beautiful and easy-to-use resources. We’ve known each other since our college days working at a summer camp in central Oregon. These days, Sophie calls Georgia home, but we’re trying to lure her back to the PNW with promises of fresh-baked brownies and rugged mountain hikes.

She’s an expert in Honeybook, elopement workflows, creating client planning guides, and so much more!

The words you’re reading right now? This is who wrote them. Andrea’s the one who infuses the signature Between the Pine vibe into our website copy, emails, and guides. She runs her own copywriting studio, and when she’s not in front of her keyboard, she’s usually baking or reading historical fiction. She lives in south Florida, so instead of mountains or high desert, she’s got swaying palms, mango trees, and high humidity.

Kiersten writes all the elopement-planning guides on the Between the Pine site, and she also gets to blog our clients’ weddings. She currently calls Washington her home base, but she’s lived the laptop life all over the Western US and even in Eastern Europe. She’s previously experimented with floral artistry and is also a blossoming film photographer.
