Negative Ghost Rider, we firmly believe in treating our couples they way we would want to be treated. And nothing irks us more than a lack of transparency and/or hidden costs. We are always up front about everything from the pricing, to the coverage, to the photos.

Pretty far. Pricing on this page includes travel for the southwestern, plus a little, area of the country. If you are having a wedding elsewhere just shoot over an email and I can get you a full pricing guide for that part of the country.

No problem! Reach out and we can help you plan out all the details from the best time of year, to locations, to where to stay. We love helping couples create their perfect elopement and are here to help!

I’ve been photographing weddings professionally for 15 years and for the last decade plus I’ve been photographing weddings for a living. At this point I’m somewhere over 600 weddings total that I’ve photographed so you can rest easy knowing that I’ve seen just about everything there is to see, and photograph, when it comes to weddings/elopements.

This can obviously vary a bit depending on the flow of your specific elopement. For example, someone booking me for 4 hours for a ceremony and a hour long drive to a sunset location, may receive less final photos than someone who books me for 2 hours but we are doing everything in one location. A good estimate though is 50-70 photos/hr where I’m photographing that whole time. Everything you receive is fully edited just like everything you see on this website. The photos are delivered in an online gallery where you’ll have high resolution download rights and a personal use copyright release. So yes, all inclusive with no hidden costs.

Definitely! You can find the last decade plus of my life in photos at SaltandSonder.com.

National Parks during July & August have gotten a bit intense to say the least. More often than not it feels more like Disney World than nature. Especially on the weekends. So if you’re set on a summer elopement and want to avoid the crowds, we can 100% help guide you to some epic forests, state parks, mountains, & coastlines. There is a lot more beauty out there beyond the national parks! That said, if you want to do a National Park in the summer no problem! We’ll give you some tips and tricks to try to avoid the crowds as well as give you plenty of options for the less crowded spots in that park.

We are still in the process of moving our lives out west. As of the time I’m writing this I’m still photographing one last wedding season in Philadelphia. My last Philadelphia wedding is November of 2024 and after that we will be west of the Rockies full time. That said, we vacation annually out west and are extremely familiar with the area. I’ve also photographed over 500 weddings and elopements the last 10+ years. A decent number in city ballrooms and parking lot wedding factory venues all over NJ/NY. Even competing against photographers all over the world photographing in the most epic locations like castles and vineyards, I managed to be ranked top 25 in the world for 4 years running. And now I’m the one who gets to photograph in the epic locations!? Let’s rock and roll!!!! The website will also be updated as we transition to a more full time west coast life during 2024 :).

I have answers, just reach out via the contact page and I’ll be happy to answer any other questions you may have!
