Instead, imagine a day where you feel free. Completely free of anxiety. Free of pressure. Free of should’s and have-to’s and lengthy guest lists and piles of party details.

Wanna invite your mom? Awesome.
Want to travel to your dream destination? I’m totally in.
Wanna climb a mountain in your hiking boots and your wedding dress? Sign me up!

Elopements are about making the choices you want to, and not having to make the ones you don’t. Does that sound like it’s up your alley? I’d be so stinkin’ excited to be a part of it!

Stop imagining a wedding-runaway to an Elvis-only venue.

The Session Peptalk

Okay, girl. Here’s the deal. I know you want to capture your rare love and real adventures in a way that only happens when you get away from it all. So, whether we’re in your backyard, or foraging through the trees, I want YOU to let it go. Let go of the expectations you have of these photos. Let go of the expectations you have for your MARRIAGE, your lifelong love story, and just BE HERE. Because HERE is where that story starts and where the magic happens. 

xo,
    Sarah Lotus.

The Session Rules

Get ready to have fun. Like REAL, silly, gut-check laughter kind of fun. 

Don’t be afraid to get a little dirty. Don’t worry, we’ll only do what you’re comfortable with, but the best sessions are the ones with the adventurous people who are willing to get a little crazy and do the unexpected.

                         I’m most likely going to be the one that ends up with mud on my boots, and totally drenched (in either sweat or river water).

Elopements

I wouldn’t have it any other way! 

We’ll be best friends going on our own adventures before long. 

I hope you choose Sarah Lotus Photos because you value a style of photos that captures reality in a deep and vivid kind of way. I hope you know that you’ll have a friend in me during your session, on your wedding day, and for YEARS after that. 

You don’t have to worry about feeling awkward.

She is so friendly and keep the conversation flowing, which makes things feel more natural and comfortable. Beyond that, she has no fear of the unknown and is fully willing to trek through nature for your dream shot. She is such a kind soul with an eye for the simple beauties in life that we often take for granted, like nature and loved ones ones.
