So, this couple holds a really special place in our hearts! They aren’t the first couple to book us as Venture to Elope, but they were our first intimate wedding of 2021 as a new business! They completely trusted us, and we couldn’t have launched VTE without them and their support.
We often hang out with our couples both before their weddings/elopements and after! We genuinely care about creating connection and following through with the relationships that we build. So, when we connected with these two again to document their adventurous vow renewal, it was a great opportunity to have dinner and hang out.
The four of us started the afternoon near one of the entrances to Olympic National Park. Mare and Abram casually got ready together by their car and we documented some intimate moments amongst the big conifers, while the sunlight peeked through the branches. It was such a calm and peaceful start to the afternoon. We played along the logs and then headed to the head of one of Olympic’s lakes: Lake Cushman. This is one of our favorite elopement locations in Washington! There is so much diversity in the landscape between hiking trails and the rocky shoreline.
After that, we headed to a day use area along the shore where these two said some really special words of commitment. Then, we enjoyed the crazy wind as the sun went down! We finished out their night with some charcuterie (made by yours truly) and a couple drinks! We all went back to our trailer and had dinner while we chatted about life and played games.
Please renew your vows! It’s such a fun and relaxing experience to be able to plan a carefree day for just the two of you. You can also invite family and friends! Just don’t forget that you can do this whenever and however you’d like. Check out this intimate Mt. Rainier Vow Renewal!
Some kind words from this couple:
“Where do I start? I found Hannah and Adam on Instagram, and they’re probably the greatest thing the internet has ever done for me. Venture to Elope is elite in their field…but they’re also just absolutely incredible individuals. I’ve shot with them three times now, and every time I’m just blown away by the quality of their content and product. It’s literal art. They’re so laid back and easy going, but bring so much confidence and knowledge to every shoot. I’ve received their photos and videos from overcast days, sunny days, rainy days, indoor and outdoor and EVERY SINGLE PICTURE is dazzling. They’re an absolute joy to spend time with and their skills are through the roof. I think what’s so special about Venture to Elope is that they capture emotions, not just moments. When you see their work, you feel the moment. It’s priceless. Every time we’ve shot together, Hannah and Adam make me feel so comfortable and beautiful and man do they bring a party. Something else I really appreciate about them is that they are just as savvy in the administrative side of their business as the artistic side. They communicate extremely well, they’re timely in everything (sneak peaks, full albums, showing up in time, responding in a timely manner) and they have solid contracts that protect all parties involved. They are generous, kind and thoughtful. They work together so well as a team and make every aspect of a shoot seamless and smooth. I have and will continue to trust them in business and as friends. Bonus: they have the cutest puppy ever.” – Mare + Abram
