Welcome To Your Next Adventure!

You’ve decided to do something a little different for your wedding. What you two plan to do for your wedding day is something you will never forget. That’s why you are going to do something more out of the ordinary. Limiting your guest list for an intimate wedding or deciding to elope is a big decision to make, and that is just the start of having the perfect day to reflect on the two of you.

Why do couples elope?

  • To have a day meant to truly celebrate the two of you and your love.
  • Limiting the stress of planning a big party and trying to satisfy  everyone else.
  • Do something that is fun, and have experiences that you’ll never forget.

How does eloping work?

This is something you won’t need to worry about, not right away at least. Every region and state has different rules for making a marriage legal. Some locations require permits to get married there and some don’t. These are all details I will help you with when we are planning out your day and finalizing a timeline.

New Mexico Elopement

"We actually decided to elope in New Mexico because I found Crystal's portfolio! Her photography speaks for itself, but after having her for our elopement photography, I genuinely cannot recommend her enough! From helping me with vendor recs, places to stay, day of, sneak peaks, to our final edited gallery- I can't imagine our elopement day without her. She was beyond helpful, stayed in touch and never left us wondering. That's without mentioning how perfect and well framed all of our photos were. We are obsessed with our pictures and couldn't be more happy with Crystal, start to finish."

"Crystal Cousin is such an amazing person to work with! She photographed and assisted with the elopement of my best friends/sister-in-law’s wedding in 2021, and after that wonderful experience I knew that I had to book her for my own elopement! We were not disappointed whatsoever — Crystal is such a genuine person; she’s so kind and made us feel so comfortable, even though both my husband and I aren’t very photogenic haha! Our photos came out perfect — I am so glad Crystal was able to capture the best moment of our lives so beautifully, and now we get to have a piece of that day forever thanks to her and her stunning work. Thank you for everything, Crystal!"
