Elopement pricing


I picked up a camera in 2019 and haven't looked back. As a musician and artist by night, I love making sure that your photos aren't going to look like anyone else's, whether that means we go grab a beer and snap some photos at a brewery, I have to conduct traffic to get "the shot", or I have to drive through NYC in rush hour to meet you in CT (it's happened), I'll do it. 

I know what it's like to be in front of the camera all too well, so I completely understand and empathize with how nerve wrecking it can be. We will get through it together and I promise, it will be a blast :)

Adventure Photographer + Storyteller

I'm Laramie

am so excited you're here. There are so many possibilities when it comes to crafting your elopement or portrait session, and I want it to be as unique as you are. 


Let's get creative

I am an empath. I photograph special needs families, artists, families at weddings who don't always get along. For my very first wedding, I flew to Connecticut to document some of the last moments of a family's time with their father. So we can all be real here. I can handle what you bring with you, personalities, baggage, dynamics, emotions, all of it. And being photographed can be incredibly uncomfortable, jarring, or just not your cup of tea. BUT...to photograph you, I need you to be in front of the camera :) So I want you to be comfortable and able to trust me from the moment you get your first email, to the final delivery of your photos. 

I want you to LOVE your experience. I want you to LOVE your portrait session, your branding session, your elopement or wedding, all of it. I promise you I will not spend time making you do countless poses that you've seen on everyone else's walls. I will document your personality, the love between you and your partner, the pride you have in who you are as a human being, the art you've created, your family's uncontrollable laughter. We will run around Memphis, or whatever city I've met you in, and we will capture your photos in a way that only compliments and enhances who you are, while also collecting memories you'll want to keep forever. Then we'll hug, and go live our lives :) And most likely be friends. Most of my clients are now my friends :)

Everything I do is custom. I have pricing packages to help you figure out what you want, but at the end of the day, we can always build something for you.

Let's do a little life together! I want to document your life and be a witness what you bring to the world.

Laramie is such a beautiful and kind spirit who captures the most gorgeous images. I couldn’t be more grateful that we snagged her for our wedding photography and videography. She and her husband, who tag-teamed the photo and video, were so lovely to work with and helped make our day be about us. They kept us on schedule, gave us breaks, and made us laugh, all while creating magic with their cameras. Truly an amazing experience!

Besides the actual getting married part, working with Laramie and Dylan at Wandering Creative was the highlight of our wedding day. My husband and I are not naturals when it comes to getting photos taken, but you'd never know it from the photos that Laramie took. If you're looking for a documentary style with gorgeous light, and if you want those sweet, secret moments captured with you and all your loved ones, you can't pick a better team. On top of Laramie's technical skill, she's also an absolute delight to work with. Great communicator, great advocate for me, and helped wrangle family and bridal party with grace. I couldn't be happier with our experience.

Laramie photographed our wedding this past July, and we can't say enough good things! We absolutely LOVE our photos! Neither of us are super comfortable in front of a camera, but Laramie made it so fun, easy, and made us look natural and not awkward! She captured the essence of all of the moments- the joy, the love, and all of the excitement of our wedding day! We love that she captured so many pictures of us in the moment and not just posed pictures. Her photography and editing is so artistic and beautiful. Before our big day, Laramie talked us through everything and met with us a couple times to make sure everything would go smoothly and answered all of our questions. We recommend A Wandering Creative to anyone looking for gorgeous, artistic, beautiful photos!!

Best experience ever! Laramie was so fun and professional, she made my husband and I feel comfortable and the shoot turned out amazing! She was so flexible with our dates and details of the shoot, super easy to work with and just a dream come true! In love with our photos and the memories we made!

You absolutely fucking nailed it and maybe I’m just going to wallpaper my house with these pictures. You were so easy to work with and rolled perfectly with our ideas. The first thing my mom said when she saw these was “wow she really captured exactly who you two are” and we both feel the same way.

Laramie was the perfect photographer—and she even went above and beyond photography! She was so kind and generous to us from our first communication, and the photos she took were stunning. When our florist fell through, she even jumped in and did our flowers too! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without Laramie. We're so happy to have found her, and we can't recommend her enough!

Laramie is a phenomenal photographer! She made the whole process easy from start to finish. Excellent communicator, extremely professional, if I could give her 10 stars, I would. Not only did she produce gorgeous photos for my wedding, but she is also a very sweet person and made our photo session a blast. While she photographed our ceremony, she was so quiet that I forgot she was there, and I didn't feel nervous at all. For your next event, hire her. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer or wedding album.

Nicole & Andrew

You were such a dream to us yesterday. Safe, steady, directed and fun to have there. It felt so natural and right to have you there. I’m annoyed for you that you took so many great shots you’ll have to cull and edit now but I’m so dang happy, because these have been elevated to such a level of magic. No one else could have made my heart explode quite this way. Thank you so much for giving so much of yourselves to us yesterday. What a gift.

Common FAQs

Q: How long have you been a photographer?

A: I went full time as a photographer in 2019...which in normal years isn't that long ago! In COVID years (similar to Dog years at this point), is like a decade. So much has happened since I first picked up a camera! I've traveled, have lots of out of state weddings and portraits under my belt, as well as a couple foreign countries....and it's only getting better :)

Q: How many weddings have you photographed?

A: As of 2022 I have over 60 weddings & elopements in my portfolio as a lead photographer, and twice as many portrait sessions. The more weddings I've photographed, the more I've become aware that I really love the intimacy of private ceremonies. There's just something about doing it with just you and your partner, and maybe a handful of people you love. 

Q: Do I need a second photographer?

A: Honestly, it comes down to a budget question. Unlimited budget - then sure, you'll get more beautiful photos, more angles, additional coverage because I can't be in two places at once. Personally, I say no --- unless you have more than 200 guests, which, in that case you're having a wedding and not an elopement, so I would highly recommend one!

Q: Do I need an engagement session?

A: That totally depends on you and what you need! You can use the photos for your save-the-dates if you're having a post elopement reception, website registries, framed prints for your guest table, bar, and your house... and of course Facebook & Instagram! Plus, it's a way for you to get a little practice in front of the camera before your big day and it gives us an opportunity to get to know each other. :) I love grabbing a drink or a coffee pre-shoot, just to get a little more comfy and ease any nerves. If you're camera shy, I highly recommend it, and it doesn't have to be a long and grueling shoot. If you don't care about engagement photos- I say skip them :)

Q: What kind of equipment do you use?

A: Not assuming you'll know what I'm talking about, but I personally use a Canon R6 (mirrorless) with prime lenses. I also have a trusty 6D that I'll whip out if I need a backup, but there's usually two mirrorless cameras on me during any ceremony. Both are literally on me at all times throughout your elopement day so I never have to worry about changing lenses, switching memory cards, or changing batteries. Every moment matters - and this is why the majority of my clients come to me because of the "candid and documentary style". I don't miss anything!

Q: Do you offer any albums, prints, canvases, guest books, etc?

A: Prints and Canvases! But I want you feeling 1,000% comfortable and excited about the quality of your photographs before placing orders on those. That way you only order exactly what you want, when you want, and when you know with confidence that they are going to look amazing on your walls and in your fine art prints. And all of this is done & ordered right through your online gallery! 

Q: Do you offer payment plans?

A: Yes, I do! Traditional payments are 33% due at the time of booking (within 48 hours), and the final two payments are due 90 and 30 days prior to your wedding day. But, if you want to do the payment plan, I can stretch it into equal 1/4's or 1/5's if that works best for you. Just let me know what you prefer, and I will make it happen. It's that easy. Photography is expensive, I absolutely get that and want to make this as easy as possible. 

Q: what happens if you aren't able to make it to our big day?

In the super unlikely event that I am too ill, injured, or there's some other emergency, I have a list of colleagues that I can call on to replace me that have similar styles of photography. If this were to occur, another professional would photograph for me, and I would still edit your session. All that said, I have not once missed a wedding, elopement, or portrait session. 

Q: How do I book you for my elopement?

A: Love that question the most! To book me for your unique elopement, simply let me know what you want included in your custom collection: 1) Number of hours of coverage, 2) Engagement session (optional), 3) Second photographer or none (optional), and 4) What payment plan option works best for you.
