How Much Does It Really Cost To Elope?

STILL ACCEPTING A LIMITED NUMBER OF fall/winter 2023 WEDDINGS
This is your life… your love… in art form
When your smile lines are more pronounced. When life has written more chapters. When you want to remember where it all started. You'll reach for these photographs.
Let's capture the kiss me again butterflies, the palpable energy between you two, and just how easy it feels for you to love one another.
That’s me—Abbigayle. Here to catch your feelings and give them back to you in one of a kind photographs.
I wouldn’t blame ya if you were surprised that all of these poetic vibes come from a midwestern girl that wears a fanny pack, jams out to Mt. Joy, and uses finger guns unironically.
But hey, life is a heck of a lot more fun when you aren’t trying to fit yourself into a box. It makes room for experience, experimentation, and expression. And I’ll be damned if your photos don’t reflect that too.
“She has a way of really seeing people. Being genuine about capturing them. And honoring their uniqueness.”
TAKE IT ALL IN
How the tears roll down your lover’s cheeks and past their smile.
How your grandpa wraps a blanket around your grandma's shoulders.
How your joy and slight glances to each other speak a thousand words.
After the candles have all burnt down and your dress is unbuttoned and you’re overflowing with euphoria—you’ll settle into bed with the love of your life knowing that you made the most of every single moment.
And later on you’ll have photographs full of breath, movement, and love. Photographs that move you as much as the day itself.

There are simply not enough words to describe our experience with Gayle as our wedding photographer. The photos were everything we had dreamed of and more. She makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and has such amazing energy that she feels like a close friend and that was so appreciated by my husband and i. She is a literal DREAM. If you book with gayle, you will not regret it as you will have the most breathtaking and authentic photos for the rest of your life. we are Gayles biggest fans!
Gayle was one of the best decisions we made when it came to planning our wedding. She was incredibly organized, kind, creative and fun! She made us feel SO comfortable during our engagement pictures and on our wedding day! It never felt like a stiff boring photoshoot, it was always light hearted and fun!!! Not to mention her photos are works of art and will look INCREDIBLE on our walls forever! Book Gayle if you want the best experience ever, we loooooove Gayle!
We loved Gayle! We were immediately drawn in by her photography but even more than that she was such a sweetheart and pleasure to deal with throughout the whole planning process. We were so nervous for our engagement shoot since we had never taken professional photos in such a public space (the state fair). Gayle made us feel so at ease that we didn’t even notice anyone else once we started shooting. She is truly an artist! I would book her again and again!

Grace and Ian love traveling to Lake Powell so much so that they even named their dog after a landmark in Lake Powell, Moka. Lake Powell, Utah has become a major part of Grace and Ian's relationship, ever since Ian began bringing Grace there back in 2020. So it only made sense to have their Utah engagement at Lake Powell!Grace & Ian
Deer Valley, Utah
Now for those of you who don't know, the Church of Dirt is not like any other church I have been to. The Church of Dirt is a beautiful plot of land surrounded by mountains near Park City, Utah. What is unique about the Church of Dirt is how you reserve it for your wedding day. The Church of Dirt survives solely on the honor code. Crazy, right? To reserve your wedding date at the Church of Dirt, you simply leave a rock or slab of wood with your name and date on it at the main site.Jessica & Jacob
The salt flats were formed millions of years ago when a lake that covered the region evaporated, leaving behind a thick layer of salt. The salt flats have since become a popular destination for land speed racing, as the flat and smooth surface provides an ideal location for high-speed vehicles to test their limits. Folks come from all over the world to experience this otherwordly landscape!Jillian & Justin
Proposals are one of those things that make me so excited and nervous all at once and I'm not even the one proposing! It can be such an exciting time and lowkey I absolutely love doing them. So when Joe reached out to me to capture his proposal to his lovely girlfriend, now fiancé Meg, I absolutely hopped on the opportunity.Meg & Joe
Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah
For Roxane and Ben's engagement session, we headed to Jordan Pines Campground which is located in the Big Cottonwood Canyon in Salt Lake City, Utah. From the moment they inquired and we spoke for the first time, I knew that their love was special. Despite us freezing our butts off, we were able to have a winter wonderland engagement session for these two and I am completely obsessed with how these photos turned out.Roxane & Ben
American Fork Canyon
From the moment that we stepped foot at Tibble Fork Reservoir, all three of us were in awe. Mary and Matthew had offered to pick me up from my house to venture the hour long drive to Tibble Rock and I gladly accepted. We spent that hour getting to know each other, which I felt was a true bonding moment. This bonding moment allowed me to connect with Mary and Matthew on a deeper level, which made my job not only that much more fun much more creative and artistic as well.Mary & Matthew
