We're Autumn & Kyle

Artists creating intimate adventure elopements

  I'm Autumn, the voice behind our company and creator of our elopement experiences. When I first meet someone I truly believe I've met them for a reason, I believe in fate and destiny. My connections with other humans runs deep, I genuinely want to know you down to your very core. I want real feelings, real honesty, real fears and real love. I use my camera as vessel to capture these real moments in life. My passion is harnessing those moments in photographs for you to have, and to share, forever. Whether they take place in a cathedral, a small backyard gathering, or on the cliffs of a foreign countryside, I strive to capture the power of those emotions for you. 

  Together, with my partner, Kyle, we make a dream elopement team. We are unique in that we offer photography, live acoustic music, and officiant services all in one package, between just the two of us.

Autumn Marie

Lake Tahoe Photographer and Elopement planner

  I want to hear all your stories and not the PG-13 versions, I want to hear them from you like you're talking to your best friends. I want to be able to look at you and your partner like I know who you are and capture your true selfs. I'm pretty much an open book so If you want to hear my stories just ask (though you probably won't have to ask). I didn't go to some fancy school, I went through something even better, a hard life at an early age and one that was filled with adventures and more life lessons than I can count the world of traveling taught me more than I could've ever learned in a classroom. I took off at the age of 17 on my own to work at multiple National parks and picked up a variety of skills and worked with people from every part of the world at these parks. It changed my life and made me fall in love with nature.

   I ended up in Montana for about 5 years which is when I started my professional photography career path by mentoring under an incredible group of photographers and later continuing my online studies on business and social media marketing. Most would call me an old soul. I love curling up and watching an old movie, getting creative in the kitchen, throwing on my favorite record and enjoying a glass of wine, or two.  
 
   I'm currently based in South Lake Tahoe, CA  but I'm down to travel anywhere and go on a new adventure with you. I have been shooting weddings and elopements for 5 years and can't wait for all the future love stories I'll tell. 


More About Kyle...

Kyle Kirch

Lake Tahoe Officiant & Musician

    Hey, I'm Kyle and my passion in life is music. I love writing it as much as I love playing it. It has been at the center of my life since I was about 15. Growing up in the small mountain town of South Lake Tahoe gifted me with musical opportunities that, I feel, are unique. There are so many talented people in that town, and being able to see each other at gigs, jam with each other after hours, it really helps you pull ideas and understandings from various styles and abilities. From black metal to bluegrass, there was always someone playing something new or different than me, and I feel that exposure to all types of genres and players solidified an appreciation and style within me as a player as well as a songwriter. Aside from music, I have always been an outdoor kid. I was lucky to grow up within riding distance of trailheads and beaches in Northern California. And I didn't take that for granted at all as a kid. 

   I began playing band, duo, and solo gigs so often that at one point it was my only source of income. It was during this time that I met Autumn, via Instagram and mutual friends. She liked my silly cover songs I would upload on the regular, and asked me multiple times to meet up for a drink. Eventually, I stopped being an idiot and met up with her. From our first conversation she was bright, charismatic, and unlike anyone I'd ever met. I knew that very shortly after, this was who I was going to be with for the rest of my life. 

    It was when we got the green-light on our first joint adventure elopement that the idea of a truly unique elopement team was born. I'm excited to see what the future holds and where our next couples are going to take us. Wherever it is, I got my backpack and my guitar and I'm ready to go. 
Cheers!

The Investment 

It's important that you understand the value we offer.

 I know it can be stressful to plan your dream elopement or intimate wedding on a budget but I'm here to tell you this is the easy part of your decision making. While other vendors require 100%-50% down to book your date we are different. Paying for half of a wedding up front is never ideal so we have a payment plan option for all of our packages! You only have to pay a 30% retainer fee upfront along with spilt monthly or quarterly payments leading up to your wedding day! Also we accept credit cards, Paypal, Venmo and direct bank transfers.

Want to elope but not sure if its for you?

Why Elope?

 Don't want to spend the time and money stressing over a day all about accommodating other people? Does planning a big party and spending money on others not sound like your jam? Want a day to be 100% focused on showing your partner how important and special they are to you? Why not take them and show them a day they will never forget. Create a moment that won't be like everyone else's wedding day, because your not like everyone else! Say EXACTLY what you want to say in your vows because no one else is listening. We believe that your dress is meant to get dirty and that your hair is meant to be wild.  Tell us what your wildest dream day would consist of and we will do our best to make it happen for you. We scout our locations out and talk to locals to get all the best spots found FOR you. Want to take a hot balloon ride at sunrise? Want to sky dive in your wedding dress? Or if you just want to go to the prettiest beach and jump in the ocean we will make your dream elopement or adventure session a reality! You just show up looking cute and we will take care of the rest! Not an elopement kind of couple but still want to get epic adventurous photos in your wedding attire? That's ok because that's what post wedding day adventure sessions are all about! 

What does that entail?

First off this could be what you look at while saying your "I do's" 

We aim to give you more than you thought possible. We make your wildest dreams come true.

    From scouting locations to giving you the ultimate vendor list, we go the extra mile to make your elopement or intimate wedding a milestone to remember forever. We show up with love in our hearts and passion as our fuel, wanting to make your experience all about you two and your real, raw love for each other. We will be in contact and start the planning from the first date of contact all the way up to your wedding date. We create step-by-step timeline charts and have payment plans to easy the stress of your wedding. Yes this is an important investment but it shouldn't mean you can't afford to go above and beyond your wildest dreams. No location or idea is too unorthodox or off limits!
