"Not only did Lauren and Matt take the most idyllic photos of our wedding-straight from my dream, but they also helped me immensely as I was planning our micro wedding. Yeah sure, a micro wedding sounds like it would be easy to plan; however, thanks to Lauren, she brought to light important details I wouldn’t have thought of. There was extremely thorough communication along the way along with many helpful tips and recommendations. I almost felt like I had not only hired photographers, but also a wedding planner. This duo is sooooooo amazing at what they do and I am so happy I chose them to capture the biggest day of our lives! 100/10 recommend!!
-Gabby & Matt
"Most idyllic photos of our wedding -straight from my dream"
"Never have I ever had a photo of me make me cry. They perfectly captured the magic and beauty of our wedding day and we are so lucky to have found them. Now, because of their photos and videos, we can relive the magic anytime we want.
That should be what anyone looks for when looking for a wedding photographer. Now that our wedding is over, there's no more cake, no more decorations, no more food, no more music. But the photos and video make it all come back to life."
-Angie and Evan
"The photos and video make it all come back to life"
"We had a traditional wedding but it turned out to be not what we had anticipated or dreamt of. Steve and I's relationship has been full of adventure from day one. So it seemed only natural when I reached out to Lauren and Matt to talk about an adventure elopement to take our day back and create some new memories.
Everything was perfect. We were able to be in a place that means so much to us, to create a new beginning for us and our marriage. A day that we can look back on with only love. This elopement healed us in more ways than I can count "

If you're still debating between photographers this is your sign to go with Lauren and Matt! Lauren is beyond fabulous in every way. She is kind, easy to communicate with, made us feel comfortable behind the camera and we couldn't be happier with how our photos have turned out (and we haven't even seen them all yet!!!) Lauren not only checked in with us before we flew out but also when we arrived to Idaho AND offered to take us to the trailhead if we wanted so that we could become familiar with where we were going to meet her the following morning. As we walked up the trail to get to our elopement spot it was clear that Lauren paid attention to what we wrote in our questionnaire because she mentioned details that I had only written there.
We are so happy!

Lauren and Matt went above and beyond for our wedding day. From the first video chat, to all the work in between, it showed on our wedding day. We knew we wanted some type of hiking elopement day. Lauren narrowed down the hikes, and we agreed on a summit hike. They prepared ahead of time and did the summit to be aware of angles and where the sun would be for our big day. On the day of - everything went as planned! Our photographs on the summit are breath taking. It was quite the hike to get to the summit, but everything was worth it for our private ceremony! Once we were back into town we had time for some star photos which also turned out better than I could have imagined. Everything about our day was better than I could have imaged! All thanks to our amazing photographer team- Lauren & Matt!

"Last fall my boyfriend and I did an adventure session in Stanley Idaho with Lauren and we were blown away with the whole experience. It started raining right at the beginning of our shoot and Lauren's energy and encouragement was exactly what we needed to feel comfortable for the photos. We hopped around to several locations and had so much fun the whole time! The photos that she captured in one word is just WOW! The colors, the locations she chose, the moments she captured were more than I ever could have asked for and photos we will cherish forever! 100000% recommend Lauren for your photography needs and can't wait to work with her again someday!"
-Bryce and Jack

Lauren was a fantastic photographer for our intimate, unique ceremony. She provided us with a wonderful experience and beautiful photos. Even our family commented on what a pleasure it was to have her. 10/10 would work with Lauren again!

In case you still have some questions...
What is the difference between an elopement, micro-wedding, and a wedding?
The biggest difference between an elopement and a wedding is the number of people who are in attendance. For us, elopements range from 2-15 people, but still include time where the couple gets to spend plenty of time alone together if there are guests. These events typically don't take place at a venue. Micro-weddings range from 16-50 people, and are great for gathering with a small group of your family and friends. Venues or private properties are a must for micro weddings to help minimize environmental impact. A traditional wedding is typically a marriage celebration with 50 or more people involved. These types of weddings typically require a venue.
What do you help with in the planning process?
What we DO help with: Vendor, lodging, location, and activity recommendations, along with the creation of a timeline of your day so the day runs smoothly.
What we DON'T help with: The booking of any other vendors or lodging, decorations, reservations, or transportation to and from activities.
We have never been to the location we want to get married, can you help us choose a location?
Believe it or not, but almost 90% of our couples have never been to the location that they want to get married at! Some couples just have their hearts set on a specific area, and let us do the rest of the work for them! We have done tons of research and location scouting to find perfect locations for many couples, so we are confident that we can find a location that will be perfect for you two!
We want to get married in a remote location, how will We make our marriage legal?
Both Matt and I are ordained and can sign off on your marriage license. We won't actually run you through a ceremony (unless you choose a photo-only package and you want Matt or myself to officiate), but we are more than happy to help sign your license. The amazing thing about Idaho is that no witnesses are required, and there is no waiting period. You can also bring an officiant with you if you'd like.
Do you reschedule if there is bad weather?
Typically no, mainly because of our schedules being booked out far in advanced. For more technical full day elopements, we are sometimes able to be more flexible in working around any weather that we may come by. Because we can't control the weather, we find it necessary to make multiple back up plans to ensure our safety and to get the best experience for you. We have experienced working in most types of weather, although if there is ever a situation where we feel the safety of all of us and our gear is at risk, we may opt for a different plan. For traditional weddings, we recommend having a tent or indoor space if bad weather is possible.
We know you're based in Idaho, but do you travel?
Absolutely, yes! We love to travel and explore different natural beauties around the country and even around the world! For adventure elopements, we are based out of Stanley, Idaho and Jackson, Wyoming, but we have done elopements in other beautiful locations around the country too!
What is the best time of year to get married?
While any time of year is beautiful in its own way, we absolutely love the summer and fall. In the summer, the wildflowers are blooming, it's warm, and the days last forever! In the fall, the trees begin to change color, sometimes you get an early snow fall, and wildlife can become more active. While we believe these are the best times of year, that doesn't mean winter and spring elopements can't be great too! We just typically recommend those seasons for couples that love the snow and don't mind some cold weather.
Can we bring our dogs with?
Absolutely! If we are going to a location or venue that dogs are permitted, your dogs are more than welcomed to join us! We do ask that your dogs are well behaved, as it will not only make our lives easier so we can do our jobs better, but it will also make your experience less stressful! Having well behaved dogs is also important in the event we run into wildlife.

Along with taking your photos, we want to help you preserve your memories too..
This is the one investment from your wedding day that you will have forever. You will eat the food, get rid of your flowers, not look at your dress for years, and probably will get rid of any decorations you had. Your wedding photos are the one thing that you will always have as time goes on. They aren't something you'll forget about, as they are something that you'll want to show to your friends and family for years to come. This is why we make it our goal to focus on telling your story the best way we can, and offering heirloom photo albums for each couple to relive their story in print over and over again.
Photos remind us of who we were, and also how far we have come since those moments. Imagine opening your photo album 20 years from now and reminiscing on your beautiful Idaho elopement in the Sawtooth Mountains, where the two of you committed your lives to each other in one of your favorite places. You can still feel those same emotions you felt on that day just from looking at those photos, and there is no better feeling then being able to look back on those nostalgic moments.
Check out our resources on how to plan your perfect elopement!
Planning weddings can be tough, and elopements can be even tougher. There are hundreds of articles on traditional weddings and how to plan them step by step. But for elopements and intimate weddings, there are limited resources.
At Intimate Adventures Media, we focus on creating a YOU experience. From the minute you contact us, we want you to know that you are 100% taken care of and supported in your decision to have a smaller wedding celebration.
We help you find all the information that you need to begin planning, and set up multiple check in calls to make sure that the planning process is going well.
