Hey y'all!

We're Jess and Austin Drawhorn – a wife & husband elopement photography team with heart. We're based in Boulder, CO and available worldwide.

Austin | Written by Jess

Everyone loves Austin.

Seriously, almost everyone I know has pulled me aside at some point to say “Whoa, Austin is really great." Don’t I know it. Here’s what I love about him:

He’s a great listener; he’ll drive across town to help a friend move a large piece of furniture at a moments notice; he loves to learn and is always seeking ways to get better and better at his craft; he makes the best/worst puns; he’s willing to see the best in people; he is so kind and good every moment of every day; he took my last name when we got married because he understood how important my name is to me.

Austin isn’t just my husband, he’s my friend and business partner too, and he takes all three of those roles seriously.

Jess is my hero.

She’s the most driven, intelligent, capable, caring, patient, and fun person in the whole damn world — and she brings this to everything she does. She’s gorgeous through-and-through.

I still can’t believe I’m married to her, and feel so lucky to have her at my side in life and in our work.

She’s my rock, and she’s my Nugget.

Jess loves: our dog son, travel, sustainability, sci-fi, social justice, video games, all of my jokes.



And then there's Cooper

He just finished attending a doggie bootcamp(!) and is now by all accounts a pretty damn good boy.

Besides long walks, he enjoys belly rubs and being the cuddliest boy in the whole world.

Experiences & locations


We're trying to bring great experiences and beautiful images to real people. All kinds of folks fall in love, which means we get to share all kinds of stories – it’s the best part of what we do.


Have something else in mind?

Odds are, we're game. We love to travel and see new places!







Oh hey, it's Jess.

Just hiking up to a glacier.



What we offer


We partner with Simply Eloped, a company that helps people from all over plan awesome, intimate, affordable, elopements.



Our most popular package – normally just the two of you and the two of us, maybe a handful of guests, somewhere gorgeous. A brief, tailored ceremony followed by a portrait session with plenty of direction.

Total time: 1 hour – short and sweet.


This one's new! The two of you, the two of us, hiking out somewhere incredible a bit further off the beaten path.

Combined hike, ceremony, couples session, kayaking/campfire/first dance/etc, all documented in photos.

Total time: Up to 4hrs coverage. 


Not getting married but still want some great photos of the two of you? We'd love to help.

For honeymoons, vow renewals, engagements, or just because, we're there.


Austin will never lose his love of meeting folks and taking their portrait.
