Welcome to Wildflower

Your photographers, videographers, planning guides & adventure buddies.

Chances are if you’re reading this you are in the beginning stages of dreaming up your epic elopement or intimate wedding day. It takes courage and guts to make the decision to do your wedding your way and we think you’re pretty rad for staying true to yourselves! This journey is one we know will be epic and we can’t wait to be alongside you (at a distance!) as your adventure buddies, planning guides, photographers, videographers and biggest supporters. Let’s do this thing! 

We're Karissa & Mike

Adventure lovers and outdoor enthusiasts

Our happy place is exploring the outdoors together with our dog, Remus. As kids both of our families spent free time in nature. Karissa grew up traveling with her family to the mountains and splashing around in lakes. Mike’s spent summers chasing fireflies and making tree forts with his siblings. Those cozy memories are some of our happiest. All of those years of falling in love with the outdoors are so much a part of who we are today. Our hearts are most full while hiking, camping, road tripping or sitting around a campfire with the people we love. 


From the mountains

to the beaches, we love it all.

Karissa is a total space nerd and when there’s a clear night you will probably find her nestled in the rocks with her camera and tripod as she catches the milky way through her lens. Mike loves everything relating to Chicago sports and he more than anything loves sitting outside with a cold beverage in hand watching a game with his friends and family. We’re quality over quantity kind of folk and we hold that close to our hearts with everything we do. We live in a small neighborhood near the mountains in LA and we spend much of our free time exploring the public lands around us. We feel like the luckiest people in the world everytime we think about the fact that we get to work in the places we love with people we love creating memories that will last a lifetime. 


creating a wedding day that truly reflects

How amazing would it be if you let go of all the stress around planning a big traditional wedding and planned the day you truly want instead?


We’ve never been cookie-cutter people and we’re guessing if you’ve found your way to our corner of the internet, you haven’t been either. We know how it goes, you get engaged and the wedding opinions start flooding in. But we have an amazing secret, the only thing you need to think about when planning your wedding day is YOU. Create a day that truly reflects you and give you the experience you truly want to have as you kick off your best adventure yet. Imagine your dream wedding day. Imagine the sights, the smells, the feelings you'll have. Imagine a day that is meaningful, a day that reflects what makes you, you. We believe every couple deserves their dream wedding day and that’s where we come in! We’re here to help bring your vision to life, to be your planning buddies, to document all of the incredible moments you’ve been dreaming of and to send you the best gallery that allows you to relive each memory for a lifetime.

The experience

We aim to give you more than you thought possible. After all, you deserve it.

When you hire us, you gain so much more than just a photography and videography team. We become your planning buddies, your resource providers, your location scouts, timeline builders, support system and by the time we get to your elopement day- your friends, your team and your biggest supporters! We put our full attention and time into listening to your stories, your challenges and your dream vision. We absorb the meaningful details and moments you strive to experience so that we can craft your vision into a reality. We believe every couple and wedding day is unique and we truly care about helping each and every couple we work with to create an incredible experience that reflects YOU.

How does it work?

Let's talk about your dream wedding day
Let's grab a beverage and chat (even if that's over a video chat from our couches)! We want to hear all about your story, from the first time you met to the moment you decided to do this thing for real. We'll ask you questions about your dream wedding day and answer any questions you have for us (don't worry if you don't have it all figured out yet, that's what we're here for).

Book your date
Book your date with us so we can begin planning! Once you're booked we'll send you a shiny new elopement and intimate wedding guide and jump into all of the details. We’ll send you a questionnaire to learn even more about all of the special moments you want incorporated into your day.

We help to craft your unforgettable wedding day experience from a-z
From location scouting to finding incredible and trustworthy vendors, searching for amazing accommodations to discovering once-in-a-lifetime excursions, creating your unique timeline to geeking out over all of the exciting details, we help you build a truly magical and unforgettable wedding day from a-z.

You get to kick off your marriage with the best adventure yet
You get an unforgettable experience, intimate and meaningful moments in a location you love with the people you genuinely want by your side- we're there documenting and celebrating each moment as it unfolds.
