Now that we've teamed up, we are able to combine our strengths to offer our couples that next level of support.

While still two separate businesses, we've come together to act as one entity for your elopement experience. Why? This collaboration was a product of working together and realizing that our business philosophies were aligned. We realized that when we work together, we are capable of offering you an elevated experience on your wedding day.
While we do specialize in photography and videography services, our goal is to tell your story in an authentic light. Storytelling is at the core of everything we do, and it starts with the planning process. You are a part of this collaboration, too! We work with all of our couples very closely to ensure that we are creating the ideal day, allowing us to capture the story with ease.

Hey friends, I’m Lauren.
I’ve been traveling all over the country with my partner Travis and our dog, Denali in our tiny home on wheels since 2017. Co-creating epic elopement experiences for couples is so rewarding, and I’m so stoked that I get to call this my “job”.
The photographs I have of my grandmother, Lorraine remind me of her life story, and the joy she carried with her every day. They inspire me to create photographs for our couples that remind them of the incredible memories they’ve shared together.
I want to provide you with the same legacy that Lorraine left behind for me.
Life is short, it is important to celebrate & experience every moment of it.
Hey there! I’m Travis.
My partner Lauren and I started a photography business 10 years ago. Little did we know that it would take us on the road and have us traveling the world capturing couple’s stories in epic landscapes.
While I have been practicing photography for years, I have always had a knack for travel and experiencing different corners of our home.
For me, photography is about being able to experience these real moments in our lives over and over again. Life passes us by so fast, it is important to slow down and take in where we are as often as we can. Experiencing photographs of these moments provides a wave of nostalgia, remind us how lucky we are to have been there.
We take pride in our work, and while we love photography, we maybe love giving our couples the greatest experience possible even more.
Hey there, I'm Austin Francis Sylvest.
I'm an elopement videographer and filmmaker. I absolutely love that I get to call my full-time job filming weddings and elopements all over the western US, Iceland, and New Zealand. I currently live in Boulder, Colorado with my wife Elsa, which has been our home since 2018.
I'm a believer that stories are powerful, redeeming, and inspiring. In a world that seems to keep getting larger, and our stories feel less significant to those around us, I'm here to create a reminder that you're everything but ordinary.
Your story is powerful, your story is just as meaningful, and the story of your journey is just as important and significant as anyone else's in this world.
Let your life show your love, and your love, create your adventure.
Your Story Matters
Each intimate moment will be documented in full & yours forever.
You'll hear the sincerity of the day through each others voices & words.
Here's Why Your Elopement Film Really Matters
It will be a living, moving, manifestation of your love & life.
Your film will help be the start of your visual legacy together.
It will be your very own piece of art that you helped create.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you don't see the location you're interested in, shoot us a message & we'll see if we can accommodate you for your dates! Travel is not limited to the United States only, so if you are planning to elope internationally, count us in!
Love, Lorraine's Travel Schedule
To make things easier for all of us, we've built-in travel costs into all elopement packages, regardless of the location. In the end, this will give you a better idea from the start and rest assured, the prices we give you will actually be the prices you pay unless a-la-carte items or coverage are selected. Packages are split by location ie. Colorado/Anywhere in the US/International Packages.
Where Are Each Of You Based?
What's Different About Your Services Compared To Others?
Lauren, Travis, & Denali live on the road full-time, but are in Colorado for the majority of the year. On the other hand I (Austin/Francis) live in Boulder, Colorado with my wife Elsa & have called it home since 2018. All of us love to travel (including Denali) so if you're looking for a photographer + videographer outside of Colorado, we're down to go there with you!
It all comes down to the experience we offer. This collaboration was brought together by the idea that joining our collective knowledge would only make our couples experiences better. While we love creating incredible pieces of art, that art could never be created without you living out a day that's truly you, stress free. Our ability to help you creating that experience is simply unmatched.
Can You Book Our Remaining Vendors For Us?
How Do You All Handle Payments? Do We Pay Both Of You?
You will still be responsible to book any vendors outside of our photography, videography, & planning services. However, we have a list of trusted vendors that we'd love to share and will personally help you locate any others you might need, but you will be responsible for booking their services.
We will invoice you individually for the services you provide. The price that you pay doesn’t change for this to happen. This is simply so that we can file our taxes without any conflicts in our businesses! Also, you will need to sign a contract for Love, Lorraine and for Francis Sylvest in order to work with us :-) We appreciate your understanding!
