The Drawhorns




Everyone deserves great photos of themselves.


Hey y’all

We’re Jess and Austin Drawhorn — wife & husband adventure elopement photographers based in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. That’s Cooper in the background there.

We share a love of travel, being outdoors, living simply, and new experiences big and small.

In our work, we empower couples to choose experiences that stay true to who they are and what they love.

How we work

You don’t get married for the photos.

You get photos taken to bring you back to the experiences, feelings & moments you care about. When you to look back on your wedding photos in 1, 5, or 50 years, we want you to truly see yourselves.

We help couples feel comfortable enough to be who they are, how they are, to do what they do — and great photos follow.

…which takes courage and some guidance! So we’re here to help.








Oh hey, it’s Jess.

Our work

We help create super-memorable experiences and beautiful images for real people. All kinds of folks fall in love, which means we get to share in all kinds of stories – it’s one of our favorite parts about what we do.

One of the best views we’ve ever seen.



Here’s what folks are saying about their experience working with us!


Bethany & Wade

Our photos--wow! I'm almost at a loss for words. We got them back (much sooner than expected) and my husband and I kept saying to each other, "how did they get that shot? I didn't even know they were there!" 

Ultimately, we chose the Drawhorns because of their stunning portfolio. But over the course of the entire process, we realized that they're more than just great photographers--they're genuine people who care about your experience just as much as you do.


Kelsie & Jason

Thank you so much for your work with us! The photos are amazing and we are thrilled! It was great meeting you and Jess and if we are ever back around your way, we will definitely be in touch!


Kristin & Brandon

Thank you guys both so much! Your work has blown me away again. We appreciate you guys freezing your bums off just for us. It was a really fun time.

I didn't plan on crying but Jess’ words had other plans for me.
