Your relationship is unique to you, which is why your wedding day should be too!

Your relationship is unique to you, which is why your wedding day should be too!

So what is an elopement?


An elopement is a wedding day intentionally and fully focused on you, your love, and your relationship. It can happen anywhere or anyplace, include just you or a small group of people closest to you, but it is a day where the focus is solely on the two of you and the promise you’re making. Elopements allow you to experience your dream day, your way, without any distractions! Learn more about elopements here!

STEP 1:

Let's talk about what your

dream wedding looks like


To start, fill out the contact form on this website and tell me all about you, your relationship, and what you're wanting your day to be like! Once you fill out the contact form, we set up a time to chat on the phone to talk more about what you want your day to look like, where you want it to be, and when you want to do it!

STEP 2:

Reserve a date for your big day


Once we've worked together to pick a date and location, I'll send you a contract and an invoice, and we reserve your date!


(You can find a list of my current travel dates here!)

STEP 3:


We plan your dream wedding day together


Once your date is reserved, we start planning your day! I work with you to create a wedding day timeline that fits your plan and vision!

STEP 4:


Experience your dream wedding day


Now its time to have the BEST day ever!

(& then relieve it over and over again through the photographs!)


Within 48 hours of your day you'll receive some sneak peaks to share with friends and family (and the 'gram), and then a little while later you'll receive the whole wedding day gallery so that you can remember your day forever through stunning photographs!

"Where to even begin. One of my college friends recommend Katie when I was looking for a photographer to capture our elopement. From the very first time I messaged Katie, she was always there to help in any way possible. We decided to elope in Yosemite National Park and as soon I told Katie, she was already helping me plan. We decided to meet up and talk before the elopement and ended up having a shoot before hand. During the shoot, she took the time to really get to know us. Asked us questions about ourselves, about our relationship, and made the session so much fun. There was no pressure and she made everything feel so natural. When we got to Yosemite she helped us decide the perfect spot to say our vows. She was there through the whole process. We couldn’t be more grateful to have not only the BEST photographer, but to be able to say we have a new friendship with someone so full of love. "

"There are not enough words to describe how amazing Katie Byrd Photography is! I got married in the city at night and Katie was able to capture every single moment beautifully. There was never a second where I was worried about posing or family shots or really anything. She had a plan for everything. She made sure that my husband and I had intentional time together before the wedding. She was flexible with any request I had. She was extremely timely!! Katie was early to my wedding and stayed late, my photos were delivered back to me within a month, and she even brought a second shooter with her to make sure every moment was captured! Her photos are beautiful. Katie is truly amazing!"

"We chose Katie after finding her on Instagram and we absolutely loved her work. She went above and beyond our expectations! Nothing was forced or awkward, and Katie does an amazing job at making you feel comfortable being yourself and capturing love that is unique to you and your partner. We were laughing the whole time and will cherish these pictures forever. Best professional photos we've ever had taken!"
