Nature-Inspired Elopement Photography for all adventurous souls...

Here at Myrtle Creative Co. choosing to elope means you are celebrating your love in an experience driven way. Elopements allow you to spend your day together and include activities/events that truly resonate with you. Some guests may be included, but most of your day consists of time together and your schedule is not dictated by your guests (if present). 

No matter what your Elopement dreams are, with planning assistance, timeline creation, vendor  referrals and more - we go above and beyond to ensure your day is amazing in the moment and captured beautifully for years to come. 

Are you ready to see if we might be a great fit for you and your day?

What to Expect

If you are looking for a Custom, Hands-on Experience - you've found it!

Human connection is at the core of all relationships and your own love story. It is really important to me that I get to know you as people and we build a wonderful, trusting connection so I can capture your love story in the most authentic way possible. If you are looking for a hands-off person with a camera to simply show up, be a fly on the wall and leave never to be heard from again - I might not be your photographer. But...

From our first contact, you can expect excellent communication, a safe space for all the feelings and emotions that come with this pivotal time in your life and your own hype woman who has your back no matter what challenges arise during your planning process. I got you!

What makes me

Attention to Details. From the start I am noting all those special details that make you, you! And thinking of ways to incorporate them into your wedding experience.

Organized, Planner Mindset. I am all about having a fun relaxed day, but when will the fun be starting? Where are we heading? What time is sunset? ;) These are all the things I put together to create an awesome experience for you!

Creative Storytelling. Your day is unique to you and I love that! Customizing how I document your day to capture your most authentic self is what I live for. 

Open Book. I want you to have the best day possible and will gladly share any and all info to help your dream day come to life!

Can-do Attitude! Have some bumps in the road during planning or day of? No problem! We are going to make this work and better yet - we are going to make it awesome!

Love Forward Thinking. In everything, your love story and relationship together come first. :)

Communication is key! From inquiry to photo delivery and beyond - clear, real and honest communication is a staple of Myrtle Creative Co!

Experience. Let's face it, I have been doing this for a while. I have connections, tons of ideas, insight, am reliable and I have been married for 13 years so I get the many facets of a long-term relationship. 

Get to know me


Hello! It's me,
    Ann Marie!


"Thank you Ann for being the beautiful soul you are. It is not everyday you meet someone who is so clearly doing what they were put on this earth to do."

"My husband and I were beyond lucky to have Ann by our side in the planning process and for our special day. Not only did Ann perfectly capture the mood and romantic vibe we were hoping for in our photos, but she also spent time getting to know us as a couple and helped us brainstorm ideas to make our big day special and more personalized to who we are as a couple.

I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Ann / Myrtle creative Co."

Christian + Alyssa





"Finding Ann Marie was the best thing to happen to us during our elopement journey. Her photos were breathtaking and more stunning than we could have ever dreamed of."

"We paid for a photographer but received so much more in return. She is a geographical expert of the Oregon coast. Every beach we considered eloping on she has excellent knowledge of and a photo album to also go with the info she shared. She also provided recommendations for our officiant, hair/makeup and florist, none of which disappointed. She even gave recommendations to go along with our honeymoon road-trip down to the redwoods.

I can honestly say Ann Marie helped make our elopement and honeymoon magical.

To all my fellow LGBTQ couples. It was extremely important that my wife and I work with someone who supported us, as I’m sure it is to you. You are in safe hands here :)"

"Lets just say, Ann Marie is PURE MAGIC and everything will always work out.

Also her pictures speak for themselves, they are what photo dreams are made of and I love how she made it fun and relaxing."

Q. Are you ordained also? 

A. Yes! I am ordained and I would love to chat with you about what this can look like for your day. I can just sign or also create a ceremony script, etc. 

Q. How far in advance do I need to book my elopement photography?

A. It really depends on when and where but I recommend reaching out asap. If eloping in a location that requires permitting, there are those time requirements and about 12 months out would be recommended. Or if at a location that does not require a permit and on a weekday (M-Th), it could be 3 weeks to 18 months. ;)

More FAQs:

Q. What if we are not interested in hiking but want epic views?

A. There are definitely locations that require no hiking and you still get epic views! I would love to chat with you about options!

Q. We need help picking a location... is it too early to reach out?

A. Definitely not! Over half of my couples inquire without a firm location in mind. I love providing location suggestions that best meet what you are looking for!
