You are my sun,
my moon,
and all of my stars.

Just you, the love of your life, and an intimate celebration of your love.

The beautiful moment when you officially say to the one you love, “I want to grow old with you,” is a memory that will last a lifetime & is a precious chapter in your unique love story. No distractions, no family members that you have never met, and no wedding planning stress.

Let’s capture the start of your next chapter,

Let’s capture your moments.


My approach to working with you during your elopement is simple and authentic – – you are allowed to be 100% you! What results are some of the most beautiful, natural, and breathtaking imagery that truly documents your unique, honest love. I promise you that years from now the love, laughter, and emotion from your images of your elopement will be so real that you almost will get to relive it all over again.

As each elopement is unique, your elopement photography investment can be tailored to fit your needs. I love working with couples who are laid-back and have the ‘we’ve got only one-life-to-live so let’s live it’ attitude.

Kristen was everything we wanted in terms of photos for our wedding vow/elopement on the beach in Costa Rica. She made us feel relaxed and comfortable and she did an amazing job of capturing the beautiful evening light that surrounded us. It was a special day for us and we were happy to have here there to document it. We highly recommend her for pics if you’re in the area. We LOVE our wedding pics so much! Thank you Kristen! XO – Jacinta + Ryan

Kristen was so sweet and helpful the day of our wedding! She helped us with our son while taking pictures on the beach, helped me into my wedding dress, and even arranged the lawyer for the legal paperwork. It was a perfect day – the pictures were gorgeous. We loved everything – thanks so much. – Madison & Diesel

I could not be more pleased with our experience with Kristen! My fiancé and I came to Costa Rica last month for our ‘elopement-moon’. We were connected with Kristen through our elopement planner. Kristen was so wonderful to work with. She was professional, timely, friendly, fun, and creative. The experience was phenomenal. And the icing on our ‘elopement cake’ are the beautiful photographs she took of us before, during, and after our ceremony. They are amazing and we will cherish them forever! – Kara

let's chat!

Planning on eloping to one of the beaches in Costa Rica or in one of Savannah’s mossy squares? I know there are countless other awesome photographers to choose from, so how about we grab a cup of delicious Costa Rican coffee and get to know each other? If the fit is right, I can’t wait to welcome you and your loved ones to the Samba to the Sea familia!

P.S. My clients love working with me as much as I love working with them; be sure to read their beautiful words of praise.
