MAKING WEDDINGS INTO EPIC CAMPFIRE STORIES

Grab your hiking boots (we’ll bring the trail mix). the great outdoors awaits!

You’re not that into the idea of a “traditional” wedding with tons of guests. Maybe you’re not keen on being in the spotlight all day, or the thought of a huge reception in a hotel ballroom exhausts you.

Instead, you catch yourself dreaming about something more relaxed, more intimate—just the two of you, or maybe a small group of your best people—in a lush forest, or at a mountain overlook, or in the high desert at sunset.

But when it comes to figuring out the where, when, and how of an outdoor adventure wedding, you’re not sure where to start.

As your adventure elopement photographers-slash-guides, we’re here to answer all those questions. We’ll turn the adventure wedding of your dreams into reality—and document every moment with stunning photos.

Now that you’re planning your adventure  wedding, you’ve realized something:

As Seen on:

Since getting started in 2018, I’ve hiked thousands of miles to photograph more than 100 adventure elopements in my rugged home base (Washington), my tropical home-away-from-home (Kauai), and elsewhere (hi, Oregon!).

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

Which trails make for the most dramatic photos (and at what time of day)

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

how to get just about anyone to feel relaxed in front of the camera

Exactly how much we can fit into your wedding day without overdoing it

...shared hundreds of homemade chocolate-chip cookies (yup, it’s a thing), gotten more rave reviews than I can count, and even won awards, like Junebug’s Best Elopement for 2019.

In 2022, I added two seriously incredible photographers to the Between the Pine team...

I’ve also taken thousands of photos...

Dawn can’t pass up chips & guac, a rewatch of the Twilight movies, or the chance to check out a new thrift shop.

Her essentials:

Dawn’s been photographing adventure elopements all over the Pacific Northwest for over 7 years. (And she knows what it’s like to be in your shoes—she had a clifftop micro-wedding in North Cascades NP.) She loves capturing the in-between moments and tiny details that get couples to say “we can’t believe you caught ALL of that!”

Love the cozy-cute illustrations you see all over Between the Pine? That’s Sophie at work. 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.

Her official title might be virtual assistant, but we’ve dubbed her the virtual fairy godmother. She keeps our social media accounts humming, our inbox neat and tidy, and our schedule on lock. She’s also our go-to when we want to know the best places to ski in Colorado (and where to find a cup of cocoa afterward).

Would you believe he said ‘No’ to going to prom with me…even though I was willing to throw in a coupon for a free tux? Fast-forward 12 years and we just celebrated 6 years of being married! Drew recently accepted our proposal to join the Between the Pine team to handle operations and project management. We’re (obviously) thrilled to have him on board!
