“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.”

"We hired Vannessa and Coleman for our adventure engagement photos and then our adventure elopement. We wanted snowy mountain pictures and we got two very different locations and weather conditions, but each was uniquely beautiful in their own way. They really know how to take any weather condition and turn it into something gorgeous. They are extremely easy to work with and go above and beyond to make sure it is an enjoyable experience. I cannot recommend them enough; they are truly amazing!"

Photo + Film

We are up for basically anything outdoors and are always interested in finding a new and wild view. Let us know where you want to go, and we’ll be there! We bring the gear, food, and fun, you bring yourselves!

We’ve been traveling around the United States trying to see all the adventurous and wild areas we can, while taking some photographs of many amazing friends we’ve met along the way! We look forward to adventuring on (and off where allowed) some incredible trails with you!

“We couldn’t be happier with the photos Coleman and Vannessa did for us at Mount Rainier. They were so easy and fun to work with, picked an absolutely beautiful spot, and took some stunning shots. Can’t wait for an excuse to work with them again soon!”
- Rosamond Smith

Other Adventures

FAMILY

One of the reasons we started our business, and a staple of what we enjoy doing, is to capture the special love of a family and how much fun they have together. Over the last decade, we have worked with thousands of families and honed in on adventure spots that work great for kiddos of all ages!

MATERNITY

As you near the exciting date, your due date, it’s important to capture the special moments before your new baby is born! We love photographing the warmth and glow of a soon-to-be mother. We have a variety of spectacular locations that are nice and close to a parking area so you won’t have to walk too far! 

TRADITIONAL WEDDINGS

Your big day is here and you’re getting married! What better way to celebrate and commemorate this momentous life event than by having it documented thoroughly? On the day you say “I do,” we document everything from the time you get ready through the final send-off as you two celebrate your new connection in marriage!

“Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”
- John Muir
