Your Photographer

I’m Joe Hendricks and I’ll be taking pictures of you the day of your elopement!

The very first thing I want to do is set up a consultation with you, so you can see if we get along and answer every question you have about eloping. It’s free and you can do that by clicking the button below.

I’ve been shooting weddings for 12 years now. My wife Rhonda does all the communication back and forth before you get married and I do all the shooting the day of. This allows me to concentrate 100% on your day!

I understand how important this day is to you and I work my butt of to get the shots you’ve always dreamed of! We can help create a little adventure for you or we can simply take pictures and let you enjoy the rest of the day yourselves.

Either way, I’m here for you and will document your life starting together!
