Your wedding day is about celebrating your love and union with your partner. You can create a day that leaves you feeling ecstatic, relaxed, and fulfilled.


Because your wedding should feel like this:

 Love Worth Celebrating

Your wedding day is worth remembering.
How many times have you heard “your day goes by SO fast” or “it was all just a blur”? Unfortunately for traditional weddings, this is a cliche because it’s true. 

You want lasting images that feel true to who you are and capture the connection + natural interaction between you and those you love.

You are ready to adventure and have FUN while taking photos

You’re looking for photos that
aren’t perfectly posed or always have everyone looking right at the camera.

We're a good fit if you are...

Let's Talk Details


When you choose to elope, you get MORE:

One of the best things about elopements is that they are so customizable and can truly look however you want.
Here’s the best way to start…
Close your eyes & take a deep breath.
Now start to imagine the BEST day you could have with your partner.

You can create an elopement experience as unique as your love story



Time together



Ask yourselves: 

Where would you be?
What would you do?
Who would be with you?
How do you celebrate?

Start there! It's really that Simple!

Spend the day exploring the city together. Stop by your favorite coffee shop and then rent out the rooftop bar where you had your first date to celebrate with family and friends.

Wake up before the sun to hike to your favorite spot together and write your vows as the sun rises. Then enjoy a full day of adventure in the outdoors!

Scratch a National Park of your list and share your vows at the top of an incredible summit. Video chat with your family + friends to share the news!


Plan your day, now!

Heidi is such a wonderful photographer, she is so personable, enjoyable to work with and really knows how to capture those fun, authentic moments!! She took the ideas that my husband and I had as well as bringing her own set of ideas on the time of year we picked and the events. Definitely give Buck Hollow Creative a 10/10 and highly recommend.

They turned out so beautiful!

We had the honor of Heidi Swonger to take our engagement pictures, and our wedding pictures. Heidi’s talents and creativity are visible in every photo that she took. She far exceeded our expectations and we appreciated her experience and professionalism that she brings with her. She was able to capture the magic of our big day! She captured the most important pictures from our day, every time we look at the images we are reminded of the emotions, the laughs, and the fun of the day. Heidi’s sense of calmness and her inspiration made it such a pleasure to work with her and we are ecstatic with everything!"

Far exceeded our expectations

"Heidi is AMAZING! We had our engagement and wedding photos done with Heidi and I couldn’t be more pleased. Heidi is so accommodating and will do just about anything to get the perfect photo! She pays such attention to detail and puts so much thought into what she does. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else but her! She truly did a fantastic job."

Such attention to detail

Hey, I'm             


A wedding & elopement photographer by day, an event planner and location scout by night. I always have a lens cap in my back pocket! :)

Learn More about me

Almost every single one of the couples I’ve photographed have said they’re awkward in front of the camera. If there’s one thing I feel 100% sure about, it’s that you’re not as awkward as you think! My biggest priority when photographing you is to create a space for you to truly be yourself and be comfortable. I don’t POSE, but I won’t leave you hanging, either. I give direction and prompts to get you to interact with each other like you usually would, + then capture the natural chemistry between you! 


Each day and session is unique, and so it will vary slightly, but on average, I deliver about 100 photos per hour! Wedding galleries are typically between 700-1000 images, and sessions are typically around 75-100! I will never keep a photo from you just because I hit a certain amount! 


My turnaround times are 4-6 weeks for weddings, and 2-3 weeks for sessions! I try my absolute best to keep that time frame as short as possible, because I know how hard it is to wait for photos! All my weddings and sessions are uploaded to an online gallery, which allows you to immediately download all your photos right to any device, as many times as you’d like. For wedding photos, I also send a custom wooden USB with all of the edited photos straight to your door, so you always have a physical copy of your images as well. 


I LOVE when clients decide to do an engagement session before their elopement or wedding day!
If you’re worried at all about having your photo taken, it can be a big stress reliever to do a “practice run” and see how it feels and get to know each other a little bit better before the big day.
A lot of couples like using this as a time to get more casual, laid-back photos of their everyday life together.



(happy dance!) I’m so glad you want to work together! To book us for a wedding or elopement,
I ask for a signed contract and a retainer of half of the total package price!
For sessions, we just need to set up a date! 


I love booking elopements anywhere in the world!
Exploring and traveling to new places is one of my favorite things and will do everything I can to research the best spots and all the pertinent info so you can have the adventure of your dreams!
I include travel in all destination elopement packages so you don’t have to worry about extra fees or stressors.


If you’re anything like me, picking out outfits can be a struggle!
The most important thing is you want the photos to feel like YOU so you should wear something that you feel comfortable and confident in.
Colors and coordination can also make or break the look of an image so I will give you all the information and inspiration to pick out the perfect thing!


An elopement is simply a nontraditional way to get married that is more focused on you and your partner instead of throwing a big party. It’s about experiences instead of an event.
You have ultimate flexibility in deciding how, where, and with who feels the most authentic for you to get married. It can be just the two of you hiking to say mountaintop vows, it can be you and your best friends or family with a ceremony and intimate dinner, or 1000s of other possibilities.
