018 - helicopter adventure session

We are super stoked to be offering Helicopter Adventure Elopements in British Columbia! Imagine saying your vows at sunset with nothing in sight but mountain after mountain?!

Adventure elopement your way

H+B has been engaged for around 4 years. During that time they also had an addition to the family! They wanted something unique to tie the knot with the entire family. That’s where we came in!

From planning to production

Adventure photo sessions have been on our minds for years now. When the pandemic hit, we knew we had to really put some real time into developing this idea, as elopements and small weddings are going to be the only thing for the foreseeable future. We wanted to offer a safe and fun way to get married, so we put together some packages that we thought would be the ultimate way to get married! Super simple, officiant included, and a fun, easy adventure in British Columbia. For this adventure we partnered with what we think is the best helicopter operation around.

Helicopter elopement day

We had everything planned and ready to go. The forecast was looking good and then… Smoke. So much smoke rolled in from the USA that we could not even see 20 feet in front of us!

That’s the beauty of elopements! There are only a few vendors and no guests to manage. We were able to reschedule for the next week! The rain came in and we got crystal clear skies. Then more smoke rolled in, again. Thankfully less this time. We know a bit of smoke looks awesome in photos and it was still safe to fly, so we all decided that day was the day.

Meaningful ceremony with the officiant included

Working weddings for the past decade we have met a lot of amazing vendors and know they are an important part of the day. We have partnered with Young Hip and Married, one of the best officiants in the Vancouver area! They had a short and beautiful ceremony with just the three of them in front of the epic mountain backdrop!

Mountain top elopement portraits

We captured some awesome portraits of the couple. One of the best things aside from the unreal mountain views that our package can offer is that we can go up in the evening! The evening lighting was surreal from the start, almost giving the photos a nighttime look when I used my off-camera light! Sunset was possibly looking like it was going to be dull, and then magic happened! We had about 4 minutes of absolutely incredible colours in the sky. Making it the perfect helicopter adventure elopement!

Amazing custom elopement printed album

We are really excited to get some amazing art in their hands! They purchased our custom-designed wedding album which is going to be an unbelievable keepsake for their family for years to come.
