If you are even slightly considering eloping but have your doubts, I would 100% recommend talking to Sam. We planned a regular wedding that COVID ruined and I have to say from the beginning of planning our adventure elopement with Sam it felt more personal and enjoyable than any of the venues we had visited and ultimately the one we had chosen previously. His pictures speak for themselves but the work behind the camera is also extraordinary. He got to know us so well he was the one that planned the perfect day for our personalities, helped us choose a location knowing we loved hiking and being near water, brought a pour over set knowing we enjoy a hot cup of coffee more than anything, even played music we liked during the hike, because he had taken the time to really discuss what we like and what makes us who we are. Having planned both a regular wedding, and ultimately the adventure elopement of our dreams, we can say the care that Sam took for us had no comparison to every pushy salesperson we met at wedding venues.
In a time where the wedding industry has turned distant and extremely expensive, Sam made it enjoyable, affordable, and helped us plan a day we enjoyed every second of.
Your story deserves to be told authentically.
A wedding photographer is there with you for the entirety of the wedding day. So it's just as important to vibe with the photographer as it is to love their photographs.

Depending on what state you elope in, some states don't require a witness at all, while some require 2 people.
