Honest, simple, and timeless elopement photography so you have authentic documentation of your intimate marriage celebration to enjoy and share with your family and friends.


All weddings, big or small deserve to be documented with the utmost care, intention, and love. Choosing the right photographer to do this, and who you can trust to photograph your elopement beautifully is not an easy decision but I hope I can make it easier for you. 

Over the past ten years, I've had the privilege of working with couples who have chosen to elope. I have stood in as a witness, wedding planner, and BFF, and wore those roles proudly while also documenting it all. 

If my elopement photography services and the experience I strive to give each of my couples is what you are looking for then I'd love to hear from you. 



How to Elope in New Brunswick

"Eloping in New Brunswick is not too complex. You pick a date, find an officiant, and get a marriage license. I'll be your photographer and together we can find the perfect spot for your secret wedding"

We would choose Shannon-May 100 times over to capture precious moments. We had an elopement ceremony, with only three guests, and with Shannon May's suggestions, it was the most magical day of our lives. From the moment we met, it felt more like we had a friend by our side than a photographer we had just met. We both felt so incredibly special and cared for the entire day. Shannon-May went above and beyond what we could have ever expected. The details and intimate snippets of the day that were captured are irreplaceable.

Photographs are meant to be printed, displayed, and preserved. 

Technology will become obsolete, and cannot be passed down from generation to generation.

This is why I believe in the importance of high-quality printed products, and why I believe it is part of my job as your photographer to make sure you print your photos and have access to print products that will last. 


Therefore each elopement collection I offer includes an album as an inherent part of the experience I provide.


Honest, simple, and timeless elopement photography so you have authentic documentation of your intimate marriage celebration to enjoy and share with your family and friends.

Elopements collections include a minimum of 2 hours of photography coverage, high-resolution digital images with full printing rights, and a printed album.

Introducing New Brunswick Elopements 


Do you travel for elopements?

Yes, absolutely! I travel throughout Atlantic Cnada every year to photograph weddings. And I will travel anywhere throughout Canada, especially to Vancouver BC, where my family lives. Inquire for options. Travel fees will apply and I typically create a custom collection for elopements that require travel.

How far in advance should we book you?

I book elopements anywhere from 18 months to two days in advance!

How do we book you?

Oh my goodness, yes! Let's do this. I will require a signed contract and a 50% retainer fee to secure your day. Use the contact form to get the booking process started.

How much should we expect to pay for elopement photograhy?

Depending on the collection or hours of coverage you choose and the additions you make to customize your collection, you can expect to pay between $1700 and $4500 for your elopement photography. This does not include applicable taxes and travel if any.

How many images can we expect to receive in our elopement gallery?

This ultimately depends on how much time I spend with you but you'll get at least 100 high-resolution images that have been edited in-keeping with my style.

What precautions do you take to make sure our photos are backed up?

During an elopement I shoot with multiple memory cards at once! Once back to my office I back up your photos to multiple HD's, which are automatically backed-up in the cloud!
