Understanding Portland Elopement Permits
Permits are really important when it comes to your elopement day. Researching them can be difficult and sometimes its hard to get a human on the phone to answer your questions. If the location you choose needs a permit you are legally required to purchase one!
I help ALL of my couples with permit research and securing one for their date. Luckily, here in Oregon, permits aren't required for a lot of the most beautiful locations. This makes planning your Portland elopement a little bit easier but just as amazing and beautiful.

From a fellow couple...
"Eloping was the fun part, being alone on your Wedding day is another! Not only was Destiny so welcoming...it literally felt like one of my besties was there! Her photography is why I booked with her and her presence was just as phenomenal! I don’t think I have the proper vocabulary to explain how truly moving this session was."
Jessica & Brandon
"These images are absolutely stunning and we started crying together going through them. The emotion drips from each moment. Everything was so perfect and I can't believe this is only a sliver. Thank you for getting them to us so quickly!! I'm obsessed with you and your work and I'm so glad we found each other."
