Leave No Trace. Please. As you are preparing for your Elopement inside of a National Park, especially during this government shutdown, please pick vendors that understand how precious these natural places are. While it may seem great to go take photos in beautiful restriced areas, out in the middle of a meadow, or off of a trail, these places are extremely sensitive and even when you are getting eloped here please remember to leave no trace. Choose a photographer that knows these principles and embraces them! As a photographer, and outdoor enthusist I try to use these principles in every one of my shoots, and if you are looking for another photogrpaher with a little moodier work or I’m booked, I totally reccomend Peter Amend of A Fierce Love.
