This is who we are

Jess&Austin(18of118).jpg

We're Jess and Austin Drawhorn, a husband and wife photography team. We're laid back, down-to-earth folks, and we never take ourselves too seriously.

"Adventure-ish" is probably the best word to describe us and our work:

  • We both independently drove 1,000+ miles to move to Colorado on a whim before we met
  • We rock climb (mostly in a gym)
  • We love to travel (mostly the continental US) and have several monster road trips under our belt (PNW, American SW) – as well as our first international trip in September
  • We love the outdoors and do a fair amount of hiking (but haven't done any 14-ers yet)

We make fast friends with all our clients, and these connections and experiences and memories and photos are why we love what we do.

No matter who you are, where you're coming from, or where you'd like to go, we'd love to be there to make some photos to remember it all by. 

 

 

Why you want us

Colorado elopement wedding photographer - The Drawhorns

Frankly, we're pretty damn good at what we do.

We work hard to deliver top-notch results and craft awesome experiences for our clients (who are normal, real people) for a fair rate. 

If you want to get out into a beautiful location and shoot some gorgeous photos with the person you love, we're there

Meaningful connections

From our first email, you probably noticed how invested we are in getting to know you! We're looking to tell your story, whatever that may be. The better we know you, the more comfortable you are around us, the better the photos really reflect who the two of you are. 

Combined with our knowledge of locations, the wedding/elopement process, permits, opportunities, and diverting disasters – we really can help you dream up and pull off a wedding day that's truly yours. 

Location, location, location

It's pretty wild that taking day-trips and exploring new locations are "official business" for us, but it is, and we love doing it.

We're always adding new spots to our huge (and growing) list of locations that offer privacy, amazing views, and accessibility. Mountains? Meadows? Lakes? Waterfalls? We know just the spot

Planning Help

When it comes to helping our clients, we wear many hats – we're like a wedding planner, officiant, hiking guide, vendor coordinator, courier, fashion consultant, location scout, hype man, MacGyver, and photographer all rolled into two. 

Anytime you've got a question during the planning process, we're happy to offer our expertise and tailored suggestions that suit you and your vision for the day. 

STORYTELLING

This is the heart of why you're hiring us – to really nail all the above points and document it all in a beautiful way. 

We know that the value of a photograph goes far beyond monetary: great photos have a way of transcending time and sparking memories and emotions in a way few other things can.

We're really aiming to create something you'll lovingly look back on (with happy tears) the rest of your life.

Frequently-asked questions

 

How do I book?

To reserve your date, you simply need to sign our contract and pay a non-refundable deposit. This can all be done online through our booking website. After you e-mail us, we will walk you through these steps. 

Can we see a full gallery?

Yes absolutely! What we choose to show on our website and social media isn't always a full representation of an entire wedding day. Simply ask us for a link to either a full wedding, intimate wedding, or elopement via e-mail and we'll gladly send it over. 

Who owns the copyright to my images?

While we'll retain the copyright of the images from your wedding day, our contract gives personal print and media permissions to our clients for any non-commercial usage. If you have any concerns about privacy, please let us know.

When will I get my images?

You can expect a preview from your wedding day within three days of your event and an e-mail containing your full gallery within six weeks of your event. 

Can we add on additional services after we book?

Absolutely! You can elect to add on hours as late as the moment we are scheduled to leave! If you choose to have us stay longer, just let us know and we will add it to your online invoice afterwards.

DO YOU ONLY SHOOT ELOPEMENTS AND INTIMATE WEDDINGS?

For the most part. We book a very limited amount of weddings with over 50 guests per year and the rest are elopements or intimate weddings. We choose these large weddings based on our own travel schedule, current booked schedule, and a few other specific circumstances. Our full wedding package is $4500 for 8 hours of continuous coverage with both Austin and Jess for weddings with up to 150 guests.
