I think we all seek two things in life: love and adventure.

 

My photography reflects both, embodying wild beauty, liveliness, passion, color, and an "awe" factor. If you're bold and courageous, madly in love, and searching for an experience that resembles your wild heart, call me. Together we'll create beautiful images that capture your tale.

Hey! I'm Cassandra! 

 

I'm a Colorado elopement photographer, oh, and I'm a native! I've had a camera in my hands since I was a small child. I would run around all summer creating fairytale imagery and videos with my friends. Then surprise - I majored in photography at Regis University years later.

 

Photography is my greatest passion - and specifically capturing two people in love in a beautiful setting. This is my 9th year pursuing my dream career, and I love every minute of it!

Leave No Trace Partner

There are so many magical places the world has to offer, and we should treat them well so everyone has the opportunity to see them in their best natural state. I practice Leave No Trace and I ask that my clients abide by these principles as well. It's easy to take amazing photos and to still preserve the great outdoors! Starting this year I am committed to being  LNT community partner and making annual donations, that way the can continue educating everyone about ethical outdoor practices. 

Diversifying the Wedding Industry

I believe I have an impact on the world and making it a better place - even as an adventure elopement photographer! I think my small business can affect the wedding community, the environment, and the world. Right now, an important goal is to help in diversifying the wedding industry. That way, everyone is represented, regardless of skin color, religion, culture, or sexual orientation. Read more about how I plan to change the wedding industry through diversity here.

Frequently asked questions

Can I get to Sonoma County from San Francisco on mass transit?


While the best way to experience Sonoma County is renting a car, yes, you can use mass transit to visit. Check our listings of local companies that offer private transportation. Sonoma County Airport Express (707-837-8700) offers transportation from San Francisco and Oakland international airports. There are four drop-off locations in Sonoma County: Petaluma Fairgrounds, DoubleTree by Hilton in Rohnert Park, the park and ride across from the Sonoma County fairgrounds in Santa Rosa (not available in late July through early August for the Sonoma County Fair), and the Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport (STS), Santa Rosa. The journey is part of the adventure. If you’re in San Francisco, take the ferry from the San Francisco Ferry Building to Larkspur. From there, you can take Golden Gate Transit buses (some transfers) to downtown Santa Rosa. Use the Golden Gate Transit trip planner to find the next bus. Or, if you aren’t near the Ferry Building, use the planner to find a Golden Gate Transit bus directly into Sonoma County. From the Larkspur ferry building, another fun option is to take a local bus to the Sonoma-Marin Area Regional Trainsit (SMART) train station in downtown San Rafael. SMART carries passengers in energy-efficient, clean diesel trains along 43 miles of track, from downtown San Rafael in Marin County to the Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport station at the north end of Santa Rosa, with six train stations in Sonoma County. What is the best way to get around Sonoma County without renting a car? Sonoma County Transit buses run throughout the county. You can also explore central Sonoma County on SMART. However, if you want to have the freedom to experience all Sonoma County has to offer, renting a car is highly recommended.
