Hi, I'm more than just an elopement photographer



I'm a fun-loving, free spirit who wants to be your best friend, even long after your wedding day! As a seasoned elopement photographer, I have over 10 years of experience capturing wild love and intimate moments in multiple countries and nearly all 50 states. I live to explore all the beautiful and remote corners of the earth and wherever you dream of getting married, I’ll be there to document it!


You want a different kind of wedding day and I couldn’t agree more. Chances are, if you’re interested in a Wild & Free elopement then you probably value meaningful experiences, freedom, and fun over the pressure and obligations of a traditional wedding. I promise to embrace your individuality with open arms and allow you to be your full selves on the day you get married. All love is equally important to me and I pride myself on valuing your creativity and honoring your vision.


It's my mission to make you feel loved and supported on the day you get married--and I want to make sure you’re laughing the entire time!


With me, you’re not just clients: you’re family.

"Joni has such a natural and genuine soul, she makes you feel as if you have known her forever!"



I'm known for my constant laughter (seriously, it's constant), flowy dresses, and free-spirited travel habits. As an ENFP, spontaneity, surprises, and meeting new people makes me feel the most alive--I think I've landed in the right job! My warm, bubbly personality is guaranteed to make you feel relaxed and confident on your wedding day!

I’ve traveled all around the US living out of my Prius, and it was the best experience of my life. I loved waking up to the dramatic rocky Oregon coastline and exploring the breathtaking beauty of each National Park along the way. I’ve recently traded in my nomadic lifestyle and returned home to my roots in Southern California, and let me tell you, I’m obsessed. I love the sunshine and laidback beach life so much that my partner Vincent and I can’t imagine ever leaving. We live in Oceanside with our two kitty babies, Wren & Phoebe.

I'm passionate about the environment, veganism, having experiences over things, and ordering dessert. I love classic rock (The Doors, Janis Joplin, Fleetwood Mac), zero waste living, and music festivals. I don't wear makeup, think hand-me-downs are the best, and dig a slow day in the sun.

"From the moment I met Joni, I knew magic was going to happen!"


my mission for eco friendly elopements

By choosing an elopement instead of a traditional wedding, you are preventing up to 600lbs of trash from entering a landfill! And good news friend--I also love our planet and everything that lives on it! You can feel good about working with me because I am plant-based, strive to live a zero-waste lifestyle and I am partnered with 1% For the Planet to help make a positive impact.


I want to turn your dream into reality!

It's ok if you don't have a date or location yet --that's what I'm here for! I want to help bring your vision to life.


Tell me about your dream elopement and I'll get back to you soon. I'm so happy you're here, I can't wait to meet you!
