Absolutely. the packages above are a general template from which we will create your own personalized wedding or elopement package.

After our first phone call where we talk all about your perfect day we’ll be sending you a tailored proposal. This proposal will include multiple package options that have all been created based on what is most important to you. If there’s something you’re interested in including into a package that isn’t listed above let us know and we’ll likely be able to accommodate you.

Because we offer both photo and video there are an amazing amount of possibilities for your special day.

Our favorite! Honestly, there’s just no other way to do things. Our top recommendation outside of insisting on both photo and video being part of your big day is to enjoy your epic adventure destination for 3-7 days minimum.

There are just so many extraordinary features within each park that it’s nearly impossible to cover them in a just a day or two. We only take on 1-2 adventures per month because we dedicate a minimum of 1 week of our schedules to each experience. This is potentially the most important aspect of planning an adventure. Especially if there is challenging weather on the actual elopement day.

We want to make ourselves available to you in case we need to reschedule for another day. This gives us the best chances humanly possible to get the PERFECT photo and video. All that said, capturing the epic adventures of elopement day and an additional dedicated adventure exploration day is just the best thing ever.

Totally. Changing your mind about something in your elopement package is a common thing. Now, for the most part, we don’t allow downsizing of a package, however we do support adding on features as we get closer to game day.

The most common example of this is adding on video to a photo only package. As you get closer and closer to wedding day you start to realize what is truly important. Everything other than photos and video will disappear into the void immediately after elopement day.

Because this is such a special and sacred once in a lifetime experience, capturing the essence in every way possible becomes the most important thing in the world.

We just ask that you give us 24 hours notice in advance so we can be sure to make the necessary equipment preparations.

Heavens yes. This is right up there with our favorite ways to do business. This is the best of both worlds. The intimate adventure and then the epic party where all of your family and friends are there to enjoy your celebration. You can bet your ass we’ll create a package for this.

This year we’ve actually got a multi-day Yosemite National Park adventure elopement followed by a reception at a rooftop venue in Orlando several months later. We can even weave the entire experience into a single video and photo collection so it tells the whole story. And the single full story video can be in addition to a 1 minute social media teaser AND a highlight film for each.

The world is yours. Creating a package experience perfectly unique and tailored to our ThirdEyeCouples is the only way we do things.

Micro wedding, intimate wedding, small wedding, tiny wedding, minimony, elopement, you name it, we’ll create it. Micro weddings are a favorite of ours. Especially adventurous micro weddings deep into a National Park. Micro weddings really are just a perfect blend of intimacy and celebration.

Do note that in 99% of cases we require a minimum of 4-6 hours coverage, no matter what size wedding or elopement experience your planning.

Sounds like it’s time to get high together. We will help your dreams manifest to reality. It’s on our secret menu, at least for right now. For those bold adventurers interested in something truly epic (and safe), we will help to create for you a magical marriage in the sky.

1 year is recommended, as this will give you the best chances of having your perfect date available and permits or reservations secured. We’ve booked couples in as little as 2 weeks though so anything is possible. That said, within 3 months to a year is the ideal timeframe to book us in advance.

If you’re planning for one of the top 10 most popular National Parks for your big day then try to keep things closer to 9 months to a year in advance.

I loved working with Samuel. We had a great time, the vibe was very relaxed and fun..”


My fiancé and I always get very nervous before taking photos because it can be kind of awkward at times. Not with this duo! Samuel and Karly are awesome. They made us feel very calm and relaxed…””
