Rae & Drew celebrated their union with a perfect Winter Elopement at Rattlesnake Lake. All week the forecast called for rain and we’d been closely watching to see if it was going to wind up snowing (tis that time of year after all.) But DANG did these two get lucky! It was the first sunny day of the year which also happened to be the first sunny day in MONTHS. This day was everything. But I’ll let Rae’s review do the rest of the talking!

Here is what Rae had to say about their Winter Elopement at Rattlesnake Lake:

“I cannot say enough good things about Amanda.
Quick facts:
she is SO much fun to work with!
– she is outrageously professional!
– she is so artistic and has a true eye for lighting/backgrounds!
– she created absolutely incredible edits!
– she is timely with presence and turnaround!

I am a very awkward person, and I do not like getting my picture taken. I was nervous to have a stranger documenting my elopement, and ultimately any distractions from being myself on arguably one of the most important days if my life. We had an intimate elopement- Amanda acted as one of our official witnesses! Since I had never been married before, and there was nobody else there, she walked us through it and met up with my new husband and set up our “first look”.

She went above and beyond, and basically acted as our wedding planner- she even scoped out the place beforehand to check for cool spots! IT WENT SO SMOOTHLY AND STRESS FREE AND I OWE THAT ALL TO HER! When the photos were being taken, Amanda was quick to fix the train on my dress or have me adjust my hair as needed (this was my request for her to tell me), and so thankful for the way little tweaks turned out in pics. She also kept the energy going making silly comments to make us more comfortable, and was so adventurous.

Oh! She also ended our session with a tiny printer of pictures we could take home with us that day! And, while her turnaround for the edits was lightning speed, they were also very well done. I could not have had a better experience if I tried. I am absolutely in love with my pictures, and the memories, and I will cherish them forever.

Honestly, if I could marry my husband again, I would just to hire Amanda.
She is seriously a whole package.
