Tangled Trails Media

A documentary wedding and elopement photographer for the off-beat, eccentric, & non-traditional.

Hey hey, I’m Abi! I work with the LGBTQ community and our allies to create images that are cinematic and moody while still feeling joyful, candid, and full-of-life. My background in both landscape and street photography has influenced my approach to be storytelling & documentary, while also rooted in the environment.

I’m all too aware, however, that many marginalized people have felt excluded from or struggled to find space in the outdoor community. Here at Tangled Trails Media, you don’t have to be thin/white/cishet/non-disabled (you fill in the blank with whatever “but” is holding you back) to find joy in the environment and celebrate your love in the outdoors. As a plus-sized, queer & neurodivergent person, I make your comfort, safety, and authenticity my number one priority when planning your elopement – whatever that looks like for you.

I’m a destination wedding photographer, but I’m not about upselling and hidden fees.You get exactly what you’re looking for, nothing more and nothing less. All packages include:

  • Unlimited planning calls
  • In-depth questionnaires to truly get to know you as a couple
  • Travel fees in the sticker price
  • Welcome guides with tips on how to plan an elopement that feels true-to-you and authentic!

The best way to reach me is through the form on my website. After you submit your inquiry, you’ll gain instant access to my discovery call scheduler. These calls are low-pressure, zero-commitment, and a great opportunity to chat details and see if we’re a good fit for each other. I’m so glad you found your way here, and I hope to hear from you soon!!! <3

Oh, and I shoot 35mm and Super 8 film too!!!! 😉

What’s a common misconception about your role in the wedding industry?

I get a lot of people laughing when I say I’m an elopement photographer because people still seem to have outdated ideas about what “elopement” actually means. “How can you photograph an elopement? Isn’t the point that no one is there or knows about it?” The reality is that there are sooo many reasons couples might choose to elope, and elopements aren’t shameful or any less of a big deal than the big traditional weddings. I’m here to help you dream up a day that feels like YOU and reminds you why exactly you’re getting married in the first place.

what is a Hobby that surprises people?

Because I’m plus sized, folks are often surprised when I share my love of the outdoors. I’m an avid hiker/kayaker/cyclist, and I’ve been enjoying learning how to rock climb this year. I love to share my passion for outdoor activities with other folks who might feel like they don’t fit the “mold” of the adventure elopement space!

What would you be doing if you weren’t in the wedding space?

My educational background is in environmental studies and GIS, and I almost went back to school for urban planning and food systems planning! I fell in love with photographing weddings instead, so never quite submitted those grad school apps. I am often surprised, though, by how my background in environmental studies connects me with the genuine, thoughtful people I love to photograph!
