Elopements and Destination

There's just something about Maine .... there's a reason it's called Vacationland! Whether you love the mountain landscape in western Maine, the thousands of miles of coastline in Eastern Maine, or the gentle lakes regions of Central Maine, getting married here will be memorable. 

Maine is the perfect scenic  destination wedding location for romantic elopements!

I believe whole heartedly that every couple should have the wedding of their dreams. Maybe your dream is to stand on an ocean cliff with your fiance and say your vows with only an officiant. Or perhaps you want to walk on a beach with the sand between your toes and a few of your best friends next to you while you start your forever. Regardless, I would love to help you plan your elopement so that your wedding day is relaxed and intimate, and leave you with stunning images to share with your loved ones back home.

 The photos speak for themselves, each and every one is simply perfect and looks like it is out of a magazine. But Andrea herself is equally as awesome and the kind of person you want to be around. She photographed our elopement and then just did our family photos and we can’t wait for the next time we do pictures with Andrea again.

"Andrea is simply the best."

Kind words from past clients

Once I have answered any questions you may have and you have decided that the Andrea Simmons Portrait Experience is exactly what you’re looking for, the next step is booking. You can save your date by signing your contract and paying your retainer fee online. 

How do we move forward with booking our elopement?

Of course! The Complete Elopement Experience is best for capturing some getting ready images and detail photos of your elopement. I can meet you where you're getting ready, and then travel with you to where you'll be saying your vows!

can you photograph some getting ready shots for us as well?

Depending on which Elopement Experience you choose, you'll receive anywhere between 60 and 120 (or more!) digital images in an online gallery. 

How many final images will i receive? 

Yes! For small elopements where it's just the bride and groom, usually the wedding officiant and I are the witnesses for you and can sign your forms. 

can you be one of our witnesses? 

If you want to, yes! A bridal bouquet really does dress up the photos and looks so nice! I can recommend some local florists, or help you come up with a bouquet from local floral shops! 

should i still buy a bouquet and wear a veil?

My turnaround time is about 3-5 weeks for the edited final images. You will get your sneak peek within 24 hours of your elopement, so you'll have some to share right away! 

what is the turnaround time for receiving our final gallery? 

Yes, I offer professional high quality prints right through your online gallery. These are color corrected to match my computer, and will be shipped right to your home within 1-2 weeks of ordering! You can also order canvases, mounted prints, and metal prints from me. 

can i order prints through you? 

That varies from person to person! Regardless, my pricing is set up to cover my time, not necessarily how big or small the event is. So I'm not worried about if you have 2 guests or 20, I'll still capture your beautiful day in the same way! 

How many/Few guests counts as an "elopement"?

Yes! I can give you several suggestions around the different areas of Maine. I'm also happy to recommend local vendors (officiants, florists, etc.) to make your planning process that much easier!

we are traveling to maine, can you help us choose a location? 

Yes! I am very familiar with Acadia, and would be happy to make some location recommendations for you there! There is a $350 Acadia travel fee to cover my extra time and expenses. 

Do you travel to acadia for elopements?
