NEW HAMPSHIRE ELOPEMENT PRICING GUIDE

THINKING OF GETTING MARRIED IN NEW HAMPSHIRE? LET ME SET THE SCENE

With its beaches, tall mountains, cliffs, and even waterfalls New Hampshire offers so many iconic locations for a gorgeous New England elopement. Your wedding already sounds amazing!

MY STYLE AND APPROACH

I gravitate towards a fun photojournalistic style, telling the story of your special day exactly as it unfolds. I consider myself an emotional ninja capturing those intimate raw moments unobtrusively for you to cherish in years to come. Although I’ll be primarily taking candids, I’ll be sure to use natural poses during portraits of you and your sweetheart as well as with family if they’ve come along for the adventure. Every love story is unique and it is my goal to create images that reflect your true personalities as a couple. I specialize in using both natural light and flash photography to best showcase all the important components of your big day.

Let me tell you a little bit more about me!

I'm sure you've realized by now but I'm a southern Massachusetts based destination wedding & elopement photographer. I've lived in various areas over the USA, but I've come to realize that the New England charm is hard to beat. When I'm in New Hampshire you can find me hiking in the White Mountain National Forest, rock climbing at Rumney, apple picking at Carter Hill Orchard, and editing photos on my laptop at Revelstoke Coffee Shop. New Hampshire provides some of the most dramatic landscapes in all of New England and has some of the best fall foliage in the entire U.S. Today I'm a Wilderness First Responder, Leave Not Trace Certified Photographer, and graduate of Maddie Mae of Adventure Instead's Adventure Elopement Academy (so I've learned from the best). New Hampshire is an absolute dream location no matter what the season and now it's my mission to give couples like you an incredible elopement day in the state I love so much!

WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?

1. Free intimate wedding consult to learn more about you two!

2. I'll just need a signed contract and a 50% retainer fee- then you're officially one of my couples.

3. You select your ceremony backdrop from my New Hampshire Location Booklet and we create a customized timeline specific to your needs.

4. Wedding day! You'll receive sneak peek images within 48 hours and your final gallery will be back to you within 6-8 weeks.

If you are looking for a “just us” wedding day experience, New Hampshire is an incredible location to celebrate your love to one another. Eloping couples deserve the same storytelling images that a traditional wedding would get. I’m a huge believer in documenting your day from start to finish. I want my couples to have all those images captured from getting ready, your ceremony, portraits, and any other exploring you do throughout the day. You’ll always see packages for traditional weddings range from 6-10 hours and I believe elopements shouldn’t be given any less coverage just because they are different. It’s still your wedding day and I want you to have all those amazing moments captured!

HERE'S WHAT MY FORMER COUPLES HAD TO SAY

VERMONT INTIMATE WEDDING

Meghan was such a joy to work with! As someone who doesn't love standing in front of a camera, Meghan made the process so easy and enjoyable! Throughout the months leading up to our wedding, Meghan would shoot us an email or text to check in or answer any questions we had, which was totally unprompted but ended up being seriously helpful. Having been to zero weddings (except my own lol) I had no idea what questions to ask, so Meghan really took the lead and showed a great depth of experience that made me feel so at ease. Now we haven't even touched on the pictures, and they're insane. We just got our wedding gallery back the other day and I spent hours combing through all the photos and was in tears by the end! They were so gorgeous and allowed me to relive the big day! I could go on for hours about how amazing Meghan was, but suffice it to say that you will be thrilled with the product and person you're getting.

MASSACHUSETTS INTIMATE WEDDING

Meghan was a phenomenal asset to our wedding experience!! On our wedding day this year, she made us feel like the only people in the world. Our photos are incredibly beautiful and were delivered to us in such a timely manner in a very user-friendly online gallery. They captured the joy, love, emotion, and uniqueness of our day perfectly, and we are beyond excited to have these memories to look back on forever.
If you are looking for a compassionate wedding photographer that is committed to getting to know you and telling your story through beautiful photos, Meghan is your girl! We couldn't have asked for a better experience from a wedding photographer, and we are now blessed with a life-long friend :)

ACADIA FALL ELOPEMENT

Meghan was beyond amazing. She was so sweet, bubbly, and kind. Also, she communicates well and was on time at each location! Actually, she was early and ready to go when we got there! She was such a good choice for our elopement photographer. She even helped us plan out our day with places and times. I am a very anxious/stressed person, but she alleviated my anxiety because she is so great, helpful, and organized. She is just so wonderful, seriously. Our pictures are so beautiful and we could not be happier!!!

ACADIA FALL ELOPEMENT

As a couple that is not local to the Northeastern part of the country, Meghan was wonderful and helpful. She answered all questions in a timely manner and was nothing but politely and friendly. Her services full-filled everything that we needed- time lines, low crowd areas, and (obviously) capturing the event. Naturally, as any big day would have it, we ran into some issues along the way and she was able to accommodate and be flexible. We now have a gorgeous gallery back and her work is incredible. Meghan went above and beyond her us and we are so grateful.

NEW HAMPSHIRE ELOPEMENT

We have to admit that we really were neither prepared nor researched enough about the process of elopement. Thanks to our amazing photographer, Meghan, not only we were able to elope in the city hall effortlessly, but also capture the beautiful foliage in NH along with the unforgettable adventure to hike up the mountains for the photoshoot.

She always got back to us timely, and had all the answers - plus helpful suggestions and recommendations, to our questions. She was organized and prepared for things that we did not even think of, for instance, that pop-up tent! We have never done a professional photoshoot before, but after seeing Meghan’s stunning photos, we wish we could bring her everywhere we go to seize the memory.

If you are looking for a professional photographer who is talented, kind, fun and prepared, she is the one. We believe she gets booked out pretty quickly, so our only advice is to reach out to her as soon as possible to secure your date!

Again, thank you so much, Meghan! You are the best!

• HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

You fill out my contact form, we chat on the phone, and then to make it official you both sign the contracts and pay the 50% retainer fee of the collection of your choosing!

• WHAT MONTHS DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH ELOPEMENTS? WHAT DAYS & TIMES CAN I BOOK YOU?

I photograph elopements July-December on weekdays Monday-Thursday at sunrise or sunset to photograph you two in the dreamiest light. Some locations automatically default to a sunrise or sunset ceremony though based on lighting and crowds.

• WHAT IS YOUR EDITING STYLE?

There are current trends right now that swing to super light & airy or the other side is more dark and moody. My editing style is very classic and timeless so you can remember the wedding day for what it really was. The photos are vibrant and true to color!

• HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU DELIVER?

Every wedding is different! Some have lots of people and some are smaller. Some have great sunny weather and some are rainy. Some couples go all out with details and others take a simpler route. A lot of factors come into play, but you are guaranteed to get a minimum of 50 photos per hour (for example- an 8 hour wedding would get a minimum of 400 delivered images).

• DO YOU EVER DELIVER RAW IMAGES?

Nope! I don't deliver the unedited original RAW files to clients because they aren't representing a final product. You'll be getting the high resolution edited jpeg files.

• DO YOU TAKE PHOTOSHOP REQUESTS?

I'm a big believer in capturing real moments and promoting natural beauty so I don't ever do any photoshopping of body alterations such as changing hair color, changing shape of nose/eyes/body to be bigger or smaller. If there is a certain cosmetic edit you want done it can be outsourced for an additional fee. That being said I do photoshop out distractions to give you beautiful magazine worthy images! This includes removing exit signs, unwanted photo bombers, taming flyaway hairs, swapping heads & eyes (for those who blink a lot), removing blemishes, and making rings sparkle.

• WHAT IS THE PHOTO TURN AROUND TIME?

Your wedding photos are delivered to you on an online gallery within 6-8 weeks of your wedding day and you get a few sneak peek photos within 48 hours.

• CAN WE INVITE FRIENDS AND FAMILY? HOW ABOUT OUR PETS?

Of course! You are more than welcome to have a celebration with just the two of you or you can absolutely bring your VIP family and friends along. My intimate weddings and elopements are capped at 20 people. Animals are always welcome at your wedding! I've photographed dogs, cats, and even horses. Plus if you bring a dog to your elopement I have a super cute dog friendly ink pad where they can sign your marriage license!

• IT SAYS YOU ARE A "LEAVE NO TRACE" CERTIFIED PHOTOGRAPHER- WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

I'm a huge advocate in keeping the beautiful areas we photograph in just as good as we left them. That way when you come back for future anniversaries the landscapes resemble just how they looked when you shared vows years before. The 7 Principles are as follows:

1. PLAN AHEAD & PREPARE
2. TRAVEL & CAMP ON DURABLE SURFACES
3. DISPOSE OF WASTE PROPERLY
4. LEAVE WHAT YOU FIND
5. MINIMIZE CAMPFIRE IMPACTS
6. RESPECT WILDLIFE
7. BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHER VISITORS

For example when taking photos of you two I would never be leading you off trail to stand on a fragile alpine environment or releasing confetti on a summit since we don't want our animal friends to eat them!

• WHAT IF THERE IS BAD WEATHER ON OUR ELOPEMENT DAY?

I don't believe in bad weather only bad gear! Growing up in New England I have photographed in all weather conditions from snowy days in Vermont to rainy days. In my opinion rainy days can create some of the most romantic photos (I also bring along clear umbrellas for you too!). In the case of extreme weather though (hurricanes, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms etc) we will chat about a Plan B since your safety is my top priority!

• ARE YOU AN ELOPEMENT PLANNER?

I'm not an elopement planner but I can definitely recommend amazing wedding planners who specifically specialize in small intimate weddings to help you with the planning side of things. .

For my job as your elopement photographer I'll be responsible for taking your pictures, and creating your intimate wedding timeline (aka a schedule based on your package so can hit all your desired spots and know when the best light is). I definitely give you lots of tips additional tips on eloping in my guidebook! You're still responsible for researching and booking your accommodations, choosing your ceremony spot from my location booklet, booking restaurants, filling out your marriage forms, etc.
