Adventure Elopements + Intimate Weddings by Marie Vanderpool Photography

Dare to Dream



Adventure Elopement Photographer Team

for the dreamers, the free-spirited, and wild hearts

We’re documentative admirers, as you feel the warmth of your lover’s embrace in the wild wind of the barren desert. As you marvel at the distant peaks of the North Cascades dancing in the warm light- reflecting in the eyes of the soul you adore. Profess your vows and experience the wonder of the world rooted in the most beautiful adventure life has ever been graced with- love.

We specialize in Elopements & Intimate Weddings from a heart-centered approach. We’ve enthusiastically captured backpacking elopements in the North Cascades and an abundant of hiking elopements world wide. In addition to capturing our couples in these wild places, we also assist with the planning portion as well. There’s nothing more we love more than giving our clients the space to plan the important details of their day- like their vows, their attire, and making sure they stay stoked to explore adventurous destinations.

We help couples elope worldwide, but we love helping clients elope in Seattle, WA and the surrounding Pacific Northwest area of the United States.

Worldwide Destination + Seattle Elopement Photographer Team for the Adventurous


Meet the Vanderpools

Evan and Marie Vanderpool are a husband and wife team based in the Pacific Northwest- traveling worldwide.

If we could sum us up into a few sentences, we’d say that we’re pretty quirky. Evan always brings a fantastic sense of humor while Marie laughs through her tears of joy. We have a deep love for our adventurous side-kick, a little sassy pug named Ollie.

Our relationship was built on a foundation of Adventure- from exploring foreign countries to backpacking in the North Cascades. You can often find us hiking, as we live for a life of adventure, this is why we love elopements. We love the energy that exploration brings to us as individuals and as a couple. We often park our van in scenic areas surrounding the greater Seattle area.

What is an Adventure Elopement?

An adventure elopement can be whatever you want it to be. Some may view it as a destination wedding. For us, we define adventure elopements as wedding days spent outside- hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, and/or climbing mountains. Our clients are here for the experience and the memories- truly enjoying what brings them joy- exploration of the great outdoors.

Personally, we think our clients are incredible for choosing something so deliberately and intentionally them. We are huge cheerleaders for getting married at sunrise, shortly after rolling out of your sleeping bag!

If an adventurous elopement sounds like the perfect fit for you- reach out, let’s talk and manifest the elopement of your dreams.
