have camera, will travel
we're saying "i do"
When you’re simply loving your person, that’s when time slows down. It’s when you feel the most present, the most alive. Those moments when you’re no longer holding back the tears or laughter. This unbridled joy and love - it’s the only thing that matters on your wedding day. We’re here to help you hold onto it with every ounce of your being, forever frozen in photographs.
We want to ride along in this chapter of your love story, creating art & memories that never fade. We take getting married beyond the status quo, tossing the traditions that don’t honor your story, and holding on to what matters most.
At Equilibrium, every love is an adventure, all you have to say is “I do.”
We look at our couples the same way we look at the beauty of the natural world – in wonder and awe. Nature doesn’t see imperfections. Your skin & bones tell a powerful story, and the person standing by your side is saying yes to every inch of you. THAT unconditional love is the art, the beauty, we seek to document.
Which means we will never photoshop or edit our photos to meet the insane societal standards that make you feel less than you are.
TO FEEL EMPOWERED AND UNINHIBITED BY SOCIETAL PRESSURES TO BE ANYTHING OTHER THAN WHO YOU ARE – WE WANT YOU WILD & FREE.
We know getting in front of the camera can be awkward and nerve-wracking. Our mission is to make you and your partner feel completely at ease

We LOVE being a part of the elopement planning process and helping research places we think fit our couples’ personalities and dream wedding vibe. There are so many things to consider when choosing an elopement destination, and we can help guide you through them all. For example, how far are you willing to travel? Are there any places you’ve both been wanderlusting over? Is there a place you’ve visited that holds a special place in your heart? Then there is the level of adventure you’re up for. National Park elopements with epic views may require a bit of hiking, and depending on the season, have more or less crowds. When it’s all said and done, you’ll have found the place you want to bind your hearts together, body & soul.
Besides getting to know and photograph your love story, getting to travel with you is the next best thing about what we do. We are STOKED anytime a couple wants us to document their adventure elopement. Depending on the destination, we may even have a discount on travel fees. Definitely reach out to us ASAP if you have a spot in mind so we can ensure we’ll be able to meet you wherever you wander!
At Equilibrium Photos, elopements and adventure sessions are the heart of what we do. We believe in creating memories over following traditions because you feel like you have to.
Our love of travel is what brought Ezra and I together in 2020, and we know first-hand how meaningful it is to explore new places with your best friend. Our photography philosophy and style is organic, earthy and natural, no matter where we’re shooting.
Being a husband-wife team also means we bring the perfect balance to every shot. Emma is there to prompt all the tender moments, capturing every belly laugh and love-filled glance. Whereas Ezra is a pro at capturing the little details and epic landscape shots. Between the two of us, it’s like having your own documentary team every step of the way (and being a couple ourselves, it helps make the moment feel a heckuva lot more natural).
The process is just as seamless as our Wildly In Love Wedding Package. First, you’ll fill out our contact form so we can hop on a call to get to know you better. We’ll go over all your eloping dreams, as well as chat about what packages will fit your goals. If it all sounds good and groovy, we’ll then send over a contract & initial deposit. From there, we’ll start researching the elopement location you’ve chosen (making sure we take care of any photography permits and travel logistics). We essentially will be your go-to elopement team to make your big day one you get to simply soak in with not a stress in the world.
We’re over the moon anytime a couple wants to elope, so we jump in immediately to fill in any needs or gaps during the planning process. From the photography side, we’ll make sure we’re on top of the weather, have scouted out all the best photo spots/views, will help with timelines and check to see if your elopement location requires a photography permit. That said, we don’t cover the photography permit fees. Occasionally, the location will require the couple themselves to fill out the permit request. However, we will definitely let you know and send you all the info you need to make the process as effortless as possible.

This should come with the territory, but we want you to know we’re here for you. We promise to be fully present, engaged and invested in your love. We’re your safe haven to be yourselves. While we love exploring new places and avenues, our number one commitment is you. We’ll meet you in every moment, always.
because we give a damn about you.
Mama Earth is our muse, and Equilibrium Photos lives by the Leave No Trace mindset. That means we pack it in and pack it out for every elopement and adventure session. We use biodegradable confetti. We send your photos on wooden USB drives. We’re constantly thinking of ways to leave a lighter footprint so people behind us on the trail can soak up the wonder and beauty, too.
Because we give a damn about our world.
When we say human connection is our heartbeat, we mean it. We want to connect with, support and celebrate ALL wild-hearted lovers. Every shape, size, skin color and every lover in the LGBTQIA+ rainbow – we want to see you livin’ and lovin’, wild and free.
because we give a damn about everyone.
If you feel like Equilibrium Photos is calling your name, we’d love to hear from you! You can contact us here to fill out our inquiry form. Then, we’ll set up a time to hop on a call together and see if we’re the couple to capture your next big adventure.
Once the deposit is paid and contracts are signed, we’ll start helping you dream up the best day ever. We’ll send over our Wedding Guide, help with color palettes, recommend wedding vendors, and essentially fill in any gaps to make the process as smooth as possible. I’ll also send over the epic Equilibrium Questionnaire so we can start getting to know all those love languages that make you so you.
Included in our wedding and elopement packages, our engagement sessions are intentionally designed to get to know you individually and as a couple. When Ezra and I show up, we play your favorite music, tagging along to document your dreamy date. I’ll also teach you my prompt-based photography style, so once it comes time for your big day, you're already a seasoned pro. I promise this will make all your nervous “what do I do in front of the camera” energy disappear.
The moment you’ve been planning for is here, and the Equilibrium team is ready to make sure it goes off without a hitch. From jumping in to help decorate before Guests arrive or helping you hike up a trailhead for a National Park elopement, we’re your emotional and cinematic support. This is when we remind you to gaze into each other's eyes and soak it ALLLL in.
You’ve married your soulmate and deep into that just-married bliss. This is when we’ll be sending you all the gallery sneak peeks within 24 hours!
Within two months, we’ll send you the fully edited online gallery so you can relive your dreamy wedding day. You’ll be able to download them to a safe place on your computer or external hard drive, and order high-quality prints through the online gallery. But the journey doesn’t end here. We’ll still be here for your story, wherever it leads.
We want to be there for you every step of the way, from start to finish (and honestly even beyond). We’re your friends who are really good with a camera lens. We love being part of the dreaming and planning stage, as much as being there to capture the memories – so send us all the photos and Pinterest boards of your wedding dress, shoes, invites and any other details. Then when your wedding day comes around, we’ll capture it all: the emotions, the atmosphere, the mood, the calm and the crazy… When it’s all said and done, you’ll have your own visual love story to read over and over again.
We sure do! The Equilibrium Wedding Guide is an incredible wedding planning resource that breaks down all the steps of the planning process – and is filled with all our go-to tips compiled from years of adventure photography experience. The guide also includes vendor referrals, location scouting tips and a complete breakdown of working with us.
No worries, friend. We’ve created an Engagement Session Style Guide to help you plan your outfits for your first Equilibrium photo session. All couples that book with us receive the style guide, and of course, I’m always here for 1:1 outfit planning help. Send me all the outfit photos, and I can help you color coordinate effortlessly and ensure your outfits compliment the location and express the vibe you’re going for.
ASAP! We are usually booked 6-12 months in advance and dates fill up fast – especially spring and fall wedding dates!
To reserve your date, we require a $500 non-refundable retainer fee and signed contract. The remaining balance is due 30 days before the wedding. We accept payments online or in person by cash, check, or any major credit card.
Yes! We offer a 10% discount off of the original photography package price when paying in full at contract signing.
Every wedding is different, but you can expect to receive 50-75 images per hour of coverage.
Wedding photos will be delivered via an online gallery within 6-12 weeks. But we LOVE sending sneak peeks within 24 hours of your wedding!
YES, LET’S DO THIS!
You can submit our inquiry form here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make sure to answer all your questions and set up a phone call with you. From there, we do everything online: invoicing, payments, contract signing, and our epic Equilibrium questionnaire.
Keeping our photos organic and natural is integral to the Equilibrium photography style. We seek to capture our couples in their most radiant light AND always stay true to their inherently beautiful selves. We may remove stray hairs or small blemishes, but we do NOT promote and will never “slim down” our couples. We fully embrace body positivity – you are already a work of art.

Emma is a born natural when it comes to photography and made us feel super comfortable throughout our session, and Ezra captured the most stunning macro photos. Equilibrium photography is nothing less than exceptional and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a wonderful experience. Can’t wait for the wedding!
Emma and Ezra are an amazing couple, and even better photographers! Not only did they drive from Cleveland, OH to New River Gorge, WV for an adventure engagement session, but they also spent an entire day and early sunrise driving and hiking with us to take the most beautiful photos.
mai & matt
I immediately felt comfortable to hire them as my travel photographers for my soon to be wedding in CT, after finding them via Instagram! Communication are always prompt. They traveled to DC for my engagement shoot and were angels dealing with my rambunctious dog.
Emma and Ezra listened to my ideas and were always working with my fiancé to make him loosen up for the shoot. They really bend over backwards for their couples.
Emma and Ezra are some of the kindest and most down-to-earth professionals I’ve ever worked with.
They take the time to understand the client's expectations, the vibe, and deliver more than expected. They are professional and truly part of the celebration in that this is more than just a job...it's their passion. If you are able to book them, consider yourself fortunate.
Emma & Ezra have quickly become two of my favorite humans and that doesn't even take into account their fantastic photography.
