Compendium of All Things Elopement Planning, Photography, Nature, and Travel-Related

When is the best time to elope?

Whenever it's convenient for you! Especially if you're heading to Hawaii for a beach/tropical setting. Things are gorgeous year-round. If you're leaning toward a desert or mountain location, usually the spring or fall seasons offer the most picturesque landscapes. Spring and fall on the west coast happen at slightly different times than in the mountain west, and at higher altitudes (typically we prefer the Rockies, Uintahs, and Olympic mountain ranges) summertime

can be just as beautiful! The truth is, the best photos/videos happen:

  • A) on weekdays (when fewer folks are crowding the frames)
  • B) at sunrise (when light is soft and most folks are in bed)
  • C) at sunset [when light is magical, even though folks abound ;) ]
