Introduction: Hey there! We’re Kyle and Sam, elopement photographers and all around good time chasers. We have spent the last 10 years attached at the hip and loving every second of it. There are so many layers to relationships and we love peeling ours back in order to grow stronger together. We bought and renovated our first “home”, an RV in 2018 and hit the road. Exploring new places and adventuring together is a cornerstone of our relationship. Traveling through the west, we captured the landscapes that we love and decided to weave together our favorite places with amazing couples. We love being outside and when we’re not working, we are backpacking through mountains, catching desert canyon sunrises, and searching for secret swimming spots. We love curling up by a campfire for some good conversations and cozy drinks while the wood crackles. We are always on a quest for excellent coffee and perfect morning views. We are each other's favorite people and have spent a lot of time learning to love each other just so, and we know that you have too. You know exactly which hand you and your partner hold. You know exactly how to rest your head on THAT spot on their shoulder, or push their hair back from their face. Those little things are the layers that make our relationship our own, and that is what we want to capture in yours.

So Sam and Kyle are hands down just amazing. They’re energy is awesome! So sweet! So kind! I adore them! They really go above and beyond to find the best times for lighting and staying in contact with you all the days leading up to your day! My now husband and I have NEVER done professional photos together so we were a little nervous leading up just because we weren’t really sure what to do but they made us feel so comfortable! They let you just be who you are and what is true to you. I couldn’t be more happy with my photos at Latourell Falls. They’re EXACTLY what I was looking for. I’m beyond in love with them! Definitely recommend them to anyone! Especially us outdoorsy people!

Sam and Kyle are the perfect balance of professional and personable. They make the practical/business side of things streamlined and easy. When it is time for the photo shoot, they make you feel like you’re meeting up with old friends who also happen to be extremely talented photographers. We had no idea a photo shoot could feel so natural and fun. They really captured “us”. The photos themselves took our breath away. I don’t know how we are going to pick just a few to hang on our walls!

Sam and Kyle were seriously the BEST!!! From the first message, I could immediately tell that we would get along really well. They were super flexible, knowledgeable, and helpful! They went above and beyond my expectations! I was overwhelmed a lot because of all the wedding details (it was a short engagement), and Sam and Kyle made everything so much better and easier to handle. The pictures were absolutely amazing!! Better than what I dreamed of! They made the whole picture taking process a breeze and comfortable. They scouted out the most beautiful place for our “after wedding sunset” picture session. Seriously I can’t say enough about how amazing they are!! If I could give them a 1000 stars, I would!

My experience with Sam and Kyle was beyond amazing. My now husband, Nelson, and I found these guy by chance, and I thank all my lucky stars that we did. We are both very down to earth people who didn't want any fuss on our wedding day. We wanted something small, romantic, and without the chaos of family. Elopement was definitely the way for us, so we set our date for 9/13/20. Little did we know, we planned to have our ceremony in the midst of a global pandemic and the oregon fires. The smoke was super crazy, and we thought we would have to reschedule. However, Sam and Kyle were totally down to carry on and get us through. They were so kind, supportive, and wonderful people to have throughout the process. We split our shoot so we could have the ceremony on the day of, and the following weekend. It was the safest route, and we got to take some more pictures with our dogs. I would recommend them to all of my family and friends for any kind of event. The pictures came out so gorgeous, and I will never forget the experience they created for us. Truly special :)

Great couple who are super professional. They reached out to me on a phone call with great information but they really listened to my vision and what I was looking for on my wedding day. I booked with someone else but I know they would be great people to work with.
