What is an Adventure Elopement Photography Package?
Elopements are becoming more and more popular. And with the rise of adventure elopements, it is not hard to see why. With an adventure elopement, you can have your wedding wherever you want – on a mountain top, in a forest, at the beach. You can dress up or dress down. You can have a few family members, a close friend or just the two of you.
Adventure elopements are more flexible because there is much less traditional events involved. You can rent things like helicopters, boats, and off-road vehicles to get to locations you’ve only dreamed of.
An adventure elopement photography package is the perfect way to make your elopement dreams come true!
How do the adventure elopement packages work with Pursell Photography?
You hire us for the photo shoot (currently $800 between West Vancouver to Hope). Our packages focus on finished art that you are proud to display in your home, and include product credit to put towards custom albums, wall-art or digital photos a-la-carte.
We can guide you on the best vendors and tour packages to book to create your dream elopement.
