You bring the love. I bring the stoke. Together we create the adventure!

Hi there! I’m Halie West: the photographer and guide for your adventure. You shouldn’t have to go in alone on your wedding day. I’m here to help you plan a stress free and adventure filled experience to celebrate your love.

I believe in doing what you love, being with who you love, and always saying I love you to those who matter most.

That’s why I choose adventure, photograph what excites me, seek the company of fellow dreamers, and kiss my partner, Stephen, and my pupper, Lilly, every chance I get.

I also believe that your wedding day should be about you two. Your love feels right. So should your wedding day!

That means creating a day that is entirely you. I’m here to help you do just that.

I’ll be with you every step of the way to create and plan an adventurous elopement that’s meaningful and beautiful to you.  I want to be your guide. We can climb a mountain or stroll around a lake. Every adventure is worth taking.

Some of my favorite places to explore are Yosemite National Park, Joshua Tree National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and the Wasatch Mountains near my home.

I want to know you and your partner’s favorite places. Together, we can rediscover a place to fall in love with.

I’m based out of CA & UT and am open to traveling to pretty much anywhere!

"She went above and beyond as a photographer. She was with us every step of the way to ensure a seamless and easy elopement. I felt like we had our very own wedding planner and photographer all in one! She is such a genuine and kind person and you can tell that she is truly passionate about what she does." -Skye + Sean

My Values

Everyone is an Adventurer

Everyone can and should be able to explore our wild places. I believe in outdoors for all and will never discriminate against you for who you are. Everyone’s story deserves to be told.

Bettering the places we visit

The places we experience are a privilege. I believe in following LNT guidelines and leaving places better then we found them. Let’s help mother nature together.

Capturing your story together

I want to authentically tell and capture your love story. I want to know what makes your love unique, what makes you both feel alive, and how I can create a day you will never forget.

Creating a real experience

Your adventure wedding or adventure session should be about your love and your true selves. The day is completely your own and will be made just for you. Let’s create your dream day together.

Being genuine

I really hope that we become close friends. I will be genuine and authentic with you, and I hope that you will do the same. Together we can create an honest and meaningful adventure.
