Big Bend & All It's Magic

Big Bend Elopement Photographer

Eloping in Big Bend NP is full of adventure and endless photo opportunities. However, due to the size of the National Park, there can be a lot more planning that goes into eloping than you think. That's why I get so excited about being able to help couples have the most seamless experience as possible in BBNP.

What's the Coyote all about?

Adventure is at the heart of what I do. When I started my business I knew that I needed it to be unique and truly represent who I am. The Coyote, is about capturing joy and intentional moments that are real. It's about adventurous humans that enjoy and value authentic experiences. That is why documenting elopements is so near and dear to my heart.

Painting the picture. Here's a few things you should know...

More than photos

If you are looking for an experience that will allow you to make memories and not feel like you are having to "make the photos happen", then you came to the right place. I emphasize my intentional workflow to create an atmosphere that feels natural and relaxing.


For me, photography is so much more to me than being paid. I thrive off of the fact that I have the opportunity to make a career out of something that brings joy to others. I always want to make sure that my clients feel that I am communicating, listening and eager to help. It's not just about the photos, it's about the experience a client has because I am truly invested into my business.

Eager to Help

Planning all the elopement things can actually get to be a lot. I am semi-local to the area and have come across many situations that couples may not think of right away. I'm happy to help guide you in the right directions.

The real stuff / Unposed

My style of photography isn't about placing you in front of stunning landscapes and asking you to smile. I won't ask you to pose like on prom night and no, I wont make you look "skinnier" in photoshop. My goal is to capture the real moments so that you look back years from now and remember the emotion. If you are wanting very posed photos, I may not be the photographer for you.

Limited Availability

I am a firm believer in quality over quantity. I used to take on all the clients and found out very quickly that I was loosing my passion in the thick of it. I want to be sure every client is getting my best work. I take on a limited amount of clients so that I can pay attention to more of the important details and devote more of my time to my clients for a stellar experience.
