alabama adventure elopement photographer

LETS GET STARTED

Its the first day of the rest of your life.
You deserve to celebrate it your way.

A wedding day is suppose to be the happiest day of your life and I totally agree. So take a second and really imagine what that looks like for you...

Numbered tables and seating charts? Monogrammed napkins? Hundreds of guest to entertain?

What if I told you there was another way. A way to have a day all about you, your quirkiness, your passions and hobbies without the expectation of the world gnawing at you. A space that is safe to express your vows privately without fear but more focused on comfortability.


That's our specialty and your in the right place.

A wedding photographer that has pivoted into destination weddings and elopement photography for many National Parks, state parks and outdoor nature venues, Mataya has captured passionate couples in every stage of love for nearly a decade. She brings her desire for adventure and servitude for her elopement couples and adds a little southern charm to the experience...

She believes a couple's wedding day, whether that be tucked away in the Rocky Mountains or riverside in the Smokies National Park, on the banks of Acadia or eloping on the shores of Alabama, it should be intimately tailored and wildly authentic to who they are as a couple. Starting forever with the one who rattles your soul should be so deeply desired that you feel it in your bones..
