A guide for eloping in Oregon

Oregon elopement photographer

I think you've made a pretty darn good decision! It's seriously impossible to go wrong with choosing a location for your Oregon Elopement. There is pretty much every single type of scenery located here in Oregon! No matter if you want to say your vows by a waterfall, in the mountains, a forest, a peaceful meadow, a desert, or a lake--Oregon has it all! Here are some tips for eloping in Oregon including the best places to elope in Oregon, tips and my Oregon Elopement Packages!

If you're considering eloping in Oregon...

Let's make this happen!

I'm so flipping stoked you landed here! I'm a Destination Adventure Elopement Photographer based in Oregon, but my role is so much more than just an Elopement Photographer. I don't just book you, show up and say byeeeeee! I'm here to help you and guide you through every single step. I'm your elopement coordinator, your adventure buddy, logistical handler, dress holder, location scouter, elopement guide and SO much more.

I'm here to make your life SO much easier and I'm so excited to do so!! I'm here to keep your day as stress-free as possible. I'm not about stressing out and I especially don't want you losing your mind on your elopement day and that's why I create the perfect timeline for your day and give you all the tips, tricks and advice on what to expect going into your elopement day.


How does that sound?! If you yelled, HECK YEAH!!, then I'm so stoked to hear from you!

Hey, I'm Courtney!

LET's do this!

A weekday elopement will typically be your best choice to avoid crowds! There are a lot of gorgeous locations in Oregon which attract all the hikers, bikers and tourists wanting to explore the sites especially if you have a summer elopement. So, opting to have a week day elopement will be best to have a more intimate day! 


This is one of the most important days of your life. You may be eloping, but that doesn't mean you don't deserve to have a day full of epic adventures! Imagine only having pictures from 2 hours of your elopement day.. Our memories are fleeting and this day is going to be your anniversary for the rest of your life. I want you to look back and remember it like it was yesterday! 


If you don't want a winter elopement, then I suggest choose a date between the late spring and early fall! Although the weather can be unpredictable at times opting for a time during the summer will give you the best chances of avoiding the rain. The western part of Oregon is a lot more wet than the eastern part! If you want more options for all year around for eloping in Oregon, then Bend is the way to go!



If you have your elopement during sunrise or sunset it will provide the most gorgeous light for those stunning portraits to hang up in your home! This is another way to avoid crowds and have the most private elopement especially if you want to get married by a waterfall. If you want to elope by a waterfall like Latourell Falls, I highly recommend having a sunrise elopement.

Your elopement day is truly all about the experience you have on one of the most important days of your life! My goal is to help create an unforgettable elopement day for you that you'd actually want to do all over again!

THERE"S A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TELLING THE STORY OF YOUR ELOPEMENT DAY THROUGH DOCUMENTING AND POSING YOU UNNATURALLY FOR HOURS.

I'm not here to pose you for hours. I'm here to tell the story of your epic elopement! I totally get that being in front of a camera can feel weird, but I’m there to make sure you don't. By the time your elopement rolls around we’ll have talked a LOT, gotten to know each other, and we’ll have become more like friends having a professional business transaction.

My Approach

I will be with you as you put your dress on, tie up your boots and say your vows. I will be there for you no matter what and, honestly, I will probably shed a tear as you say your vows, because I’m so happy you got to get married in the way you truly wanted to.

Courtney helped us to turn our dreams into reality, and we hardly had to do a thing. She allowed us to be in control of our day, but gently took all of our wants and needs into consideration while making everything happen. Lastly, our pictures are just magical. Courtney is an incredibly talented photographer, and I feel so lucky that we were able to work with her. I would recommend her over and over again to anyone eloping.

"Planning for our day and the day itself would have been completely different without Courtney. We only knew that we wanted to share our vows in the Tuscan countryside and have beautiful photos, and Courtney planned the perfect agenda for that to happen. She coordinated our timing around sunset, and not only were the photos breathtaking, but the actual evening was too. I remember looking out over the vineyards as the sun set, the view becoming more and more stunning by the minute. There were no moments that felt forced or posed, every shot was comfortable and fun and full of love. Courtney is such a sweet, kind, fun person and we truly enjoyed spending the day with her.

"Let. Me. Tell. You. It's not the technical aspects of photography that are the most difficult. It's the human aspect. Remembering that as a Photographer, you may be behind the lens but you are still a human, in front of other humans, in some of the most raw and intimate of moments. Courtney balances both of these necessities (but rarities) with poise, great direction, and an overall kind calmness that just makes you breathe a sigh of relief. If you've come across Courtney's page and see what you like already, BOOK HER NOW. Don't spend another second looking for another Photographer that doesn't bring anywhere near the amazing light and spirit that this girl brings right here. Thank you again Courtney for allowing my husband and I to marry each other all over again! The images are stunning and I can't wait to blow them up and hang them in our home."

"Working with Courtney was an extremely easy experience, seamless, positive and obviously fun. My wife and I went on our honeymoon and wanted to surprise her with a surprise honeymoon adventure session. Courtney worked with me to make that dream gift for my wife a reality. Meeting and posing for a photographer for the first time can be intimidating, but with Courtney it was anything but that. Courtney is extremely positive and helpful and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She played some of our favorite songs and before we knew we were just having fun and she was catching them every second. Perhaps the best part of our session was that Courtney knew all the characteristic and peaceful places of where we were, which made our photos even more extraordinary. She kept the focus was on my wife and me. When we shared our images with friends and relatives, everyone complimented on Courtney's aesthetics and the emotion she was able to capture. I can't thank Courtney enough for exceeding all our expectations with this photo shoot!!"
