Hey there friend… I see you.

Feeling “over” this big wedding thing?


Are you uninspired and jaded by big traditional weddings where the couple is stressed out all day and gets “swallowed” whole by the performance and production?


Does your nature-loving soul die a little bit each time you think about working all day in ballrooms, hotels, and sterile wedding venues?


Are you worried that potential clients aren’t seeing what’s unique about you and your business? Or that you’re drowning in a “sea of sameness” in this competitive industry?


Is your dream client an adventurous outdoorsy couple who wants to elope—but you can’t for the LIFE of you figure out how to reach them?


Are you exhausted from spinning your wheels with a gazillion different marketing efforts, trying to book elopements? All with little to no results?


Are you intimidated or overwhelmed by the logistics, planning, and location scouting for elopements?


Do you lack confidence that you can craft an amazing elopement experience for every couple?


Are you unsure of where to even start?


 The struggle is real. It’s time to discover how to escape all this.


Learning from Maddie Mae was the best investment I have made in my business. I felt that I was on shaky ground when it came to all the ins and outs of adventurous elopements and the instruction she provided has given me the solid footing that my business needed. She not only has an incredible breadth of knowledge about marketing, but is an impressive communicator and teaches in a way that you can actually comprehend and take action. I'm a bit of a perpetual student… so when I say that learning from Maddie Mae was by far the best learning experience I have ever had—it's no joke. Maddie genuinely wants everyone to succeed in the industry. She’s not just spouting community over competition, she’s living it.

- Jackleen Leed

well guess what...

 It doesn't have
to be that way.


What if
your life as a photographer could be different?

Imagine this:

You’re exploring the great outdoors with an eloping couple. You're surrounded by nature, embracing the overwhelming beauty of the environment and the pure intimacy of the moment.

When they reach that perfect spot, they pull their vows out of their pocket and read the handwritten, heartfelt words that they truly want to say to each other. Their entire day (which YOU helped them create!) is 100% what they dreamed of and they truly enjoy every minute of it.

While they relive their elopement through your photos, you’re out photographing another. Your calendar is booked full of adventures for the next year. Every week you get new inquiries from your “perfect fit” eloping couples asking you to help them begin their life together with an adventure they’ll never forget.

How inspiring would it be to photograph only wedding experiences that are truly what the couple wants? To be a part of intimate, meaningful elopement days that the couple enjoys every moment of?

 now imagine this:


What if you knew exactly
how to build a business that connects you directly with that type of couple?


How would it feel to have your calendar FULL of the elopements you dream of photographing?


How awesome would it be
to feel confident in your skills to craft a truly unforgettable elopement experience, one that the couple will want to relive over and over again through your photos?


 Wouldn’t it be epic to have a concrete, step-by-step PLAN that attracts the eloping couples of your dreams and brings CONSISTENT inquiries to your inbox?

Heck yes!


Maddie Mae is concise and super educated—she really KNOWS what she's talking about and how to teach it. There's a reason why she's super successful. I really really REALLY appreciate the strategic business standpoint she has—having a degree in business gives her a super different approach in this industry. I learned so much from her that was so refreshing—a hugely different point of view from what photographers normally are taught. I’ve been to workshops that hit just some surface topics but Maddie does an amazing job at digging down DEEP and REALLY teaching! She is so focused on service and also has all the education and business knowledge to back up her approach. As a photographer that just started to build my business I knew a lot about what I needed to do… but not HOW. Maddie gave me all the tools and more—plus a heck of a lot of resources. Learning from Maddie was worth the investment plus 5 times more. I feel like I learned my money's worth from her in the first hour. I am SO glad I invested into myself and I can’t wait to apply what she taught me.

 Well, good news…

If You’re Thinking, “That Sounds Like My Dream!”

Then this workshop is exactly what you’ve been looking for.


Say hey to the FIRST-ever, All-IN-ONE solution to becoming an elopement photographer

The elopement photographer course:
build your dream business in 90 days

The very FIRST 100% elopement-focused comprehensive online course that teaches you how to actually get real elopement bookings AND how to create an incredible EXPERIENCE for your couples when their day comes…

Say what?! How the heck does this work?


Let me
tell you
a story
real quick



is me


Hey, I'm Maddie Mae

I’m a Colorado-based,


full-time elopement photographer with


elopements under my belt &


more elopement bookings on the calendar. I’ll travel to


countries this year to help couples create their dream elopement days.


 But my life as a photographer hasn’t always been like this...

I photographed big, traditional weddings for 5 years before I discovered the magic of adventurous elopements. While the couples were great, many of the big weddings I photographed felt like a lot of:

01 Family obligations & expectations

02 Forced pointless traditions

03 Pressure to be perfect

04 Anxiety & stress

05 Waste & trash

06 Loss of focus on what matters

It really shocked me how so many couples seemed “steamrolledby their own wedding days and how often I heard “I just can’t wait for this to be over.


 When I photographed my first elopement in 2015,

I knew with 100% certainty that

it was my truest passion to help more couples feel free to be THEMSELVES on the day they got married and to bring the focus of their day back to what truly matters —

their relationship & celebrating their commitment to each other in an authentic & meaningful way

 It was scary, but I took the leap to go “all in” and specialized my business in elopements.

Applying the proven tools & strategies I learned studying marketing in college, I booked 30 dream adventurous elopements in the following year, and had a 6-figure income — while transitioning.


in 2017

I photographed 55 adventure elopements, traveled to 13 countries, and was booked solid with the adventurous couples I’d been dreaming of.

I wanted more couples to have an amazing elopement experience so I decided to create a team of passionate elopement photographers (“Adventure Instead”) so that my business could SERVE even more people.

 we (me, Amber, & Tori) photographed 90 elopements at an average rate of $5,000.

Today, the elopement marketing strategies I’ve developed result in us getting

50–60 real elopement inquiries per month.


in 2018


in 2019

(this year)

we will photograph over 100 elopements at an average booking rate of over $6,500, while traveling to 18 countries.

 Becoming an elopement photographer changed my life. And I want the SAME for you.

 Instead of

coming home drained and exhausted after photographing another stressful, chaotic, traditional wedding production

You can

come home from an elopement feeling fulfilled and inspired.

 Instead of

photographing in sterile ballrooms


get to be outdoors to work — surrounded by nature and traveling to the places you’ve dreamed about.

 Instead of





Here’s the BOTTOM LINE

Elopements are life changing

I want as many couples as possible to elope, and have the authentic, intimate, and meaningful wedding experiences they’ve dreamed of.

I feel like I’m living my truest purpose when an eloping couple tells me:
“You gave us permission to do everything we truly wanted on our wedding day. We wish we could relive it over and over again.”

I want YOU (as a photographer) to feel how fulfilling it is to make that happen for couples who inspire you.


I want to help you become an elopement photographer so you can finally pursue your passions. So you can reconnect with WHY you became a photographer in the first place (and I know it wasn't to fill landfills with plastic party crap or to document the “Cha-cha slide” for the 100th time).

I want to help you experience the ultimate joy of connecting with & serving couples who are “your people,” to be compensated (very) fairly for your amazing work, and truly LOVE what you do.”


- Paige Johnson

Maddie Mae... Wow. What can I say? She truly cares about YOU and I believe that she honestly wants all of us elopement photographers to be successful. She leaves nothing to wonder about and it’s clear by how much specific information she provides that she doesn’t hold anything back. She is far more transparent and open than anyone would expect a photographer at her level to be. The more I gush about her the more fake I feel like it sounds but seriously she is awesome. Learning from Maddie was the best thing I could have done for my business. She is everything I could have hoped for as a teacher and has set me on the right path. I can't wait to grow using what she taught me!


- Stacy Garfield

Maddie Mae so genuinely cares about helping to make you successful. She has a ton of information and is willing to share everything. I saw Maddie Mae as the leader in the adventure elopement photography business through social media and meeting her in person proved that she is the real deal. She has so much info to share and didn’t hold anything back. By learning from her, I have avoided making mistakes that could have held me back from succeeding. Now I have the knowledge that will help me grow as a person, entrepreneur and elopement photographer.

- Crystal Ludwick

The first time I got to learn from Maddie, man-o-man, was it just a dream! The amount of information she managed to squeeze in to my brain was quite remarkable. She left NO unanswered questions and with the knowledge she gave me I will be doing an entire overhaul of my business and couldn't be more excited. Maddie’s #1 priority is serving eloping couples, and seeing that she wasn't arrogant or egotistical was a relief and gave me confidence for my future when I sometimes feel surrounded by egos in this industry. Every question I had going in was answered—whether that be on SEO, learning my "WHY", defining my ideal client/couple, helping me find confidence, website design/layout, outsourcing, etc. Maddie is the REAL DEAL. She’s an amazing guide to help you get on the path that is best suited for you. A++++ I would highly recommend learning from her. Do it!

I literally can't say enough good things about Maddie. Her teaching style is so effective and balances being informative, approachable, and relatable. She is so stupidly business savvy it would be intimidating if it wasn't so insanely helpful. Maddie has also gotten me so STOKED on the relationship and experience with eloping couples. Photographing elopements is so much more than taking photos. I don't think I can really communicate how amazing my experience with her was without some kind of shouting or with a gazzilion emojis. Maddie has answered every question I had about elopements and then answered questions I didn't even know I had! She infuses her expertise into every second she teaches. Learning form Maddie Mae is the best decision I could have made for my elopement photography career and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

- Brigette Burgman

Still sort of on the fence?

Are these thoughts crossing your mind?

"I don't think I can succeed as an elopement photographer"

I’ve heard this one a lot from mentees and let me just say, I believe in you, friend. Really! Being a successful elopement photographer has nothing to do with the number of instagram followers you currently have, or how outgoing you are on social media, or if you currently live that “wanderlust” lifestyle.

When I started booking & photographing elopements full time, I was living in a 2-bedroom apartment in the middle of a city. I’m an extreme introvert (true story!) and I had less than 1k followers, and nobody knew who I was. And it didn’t matter (and still doesn’t matter) how many followers I have or who knows who I am.

What matters you have a HEART for this? Do you care about elopements? Is there a deeper REASON why you want to serve eloping couples? Are you willing to work hard and make the brave choice to go after your dreams? If yes, I can honestly say that this course will help you get there.

"I don't have the time or discipline."

Can you watch Netflix?

Then yeah, you can watch this video workshop ;) And the accompanying workbook makes it super easy to actually start taking action on building your dream business as you sit back and watch the videos.

And I bet you’ll get super motivated once you’ve watched the first few videos and see a clear path to how you can succeed in your own unique slice of the elopement market.

"I don't really want to travel."

Well you don’t have to :)

Maybe visiting Patagonia or Iceland and Norway isn’t your thing (because you have a family, or you love your own bed—who doesn’t?).

But elopements are happening everywhere in the world (just like big weddings) and this course will teach you how to book elopements closer to home.

“I’m not sure you’re the real deal.”

Ouch. :)

But seriously, it’s alright if you don’t know me that well. I understand feeling jaded by all the instafamous "educators" who know nothing about real business and are basically just smoke & mirrors.


Here’s why you can trust that this course will help you

become an elopement photographer:


My success at becoming an elopement photographer (which I shared above) was based on real data-driven marketing strategy

not just luck or “instafame.” This means I teach proven strategies that you can follow & find success with, too.


I actually have a degree in business marketing and am a giant marketing nerd.

Seriously, I wrote a 100+ page marketing plan for my honors thesis about how I was going to shift from photographing all big weddings to photographing ONLY elopements. I followed my plan and did just that—and guess what? It worked. It can seriously work for you, too.


I have personally booked & photographed over 120 elopements in 15 countries

over the past few years. I’m STILL booking & shooting them all over the world this year. I know exactly what it takes to book amazing elopements TODAY. And I’ll keep on booking them—I have no plans to “cash out” and retire via this course.


 I get that you can’t just take my word for it.

It matters who you invest your education dollars in. take a listen to what other photographers like you are saying :)

Julie Haider.jpg

Before I attended a Maddie Mae’s workshop about elopements, I made a list of all the things I felt like I was struggling with

missing information about, and questions I had about being an adventure wedding photographer. Maddie answered every single item on the list! Now I feel like I have all the tools I need to put in the work and make things happen. I'm so grateful for Maddie’s willingness to share her knowledge—it was beyond worth the money and time I invested. Maddie is SO open about her whole process, and shared in depth knowledge on so many topics. She is approachable, and I really appreciated that she is building up the community with knowledge rather than keeping the industry secrets.

- Julie Haider

Cassandra Oldenberg.jpg

Maddie Mae is absolutely the BEST educator I have ever had!

I have been in the industry for 14 years and learned SO much from her! She packs so much info into everything she teaches and breaks it down in a way that’s easy to understand! She communicates not only the “what”, but the “why” behind it. Her passion for education, attention to detail, explanations every step of the way, and her complete transparency is truly inspiring! I HIGHLY recommend Maddie Mae in all aspects of teaching & mentoring for elopement photographers!! Every single thing I learned from her has been SO valuable!

- Cassandra Oldenburg


Maddie is a fantastic educator, and her enthusiasm for her work was both touching and inspiring.

I loved her in-depth education on all aspects of the business side of elopements, such as SEO and marketing. Maddie's sincere interest in the success of my businesses was apparent. Learning about Maddie's entire elopement workflow from inquiry through booking and delivery was invaluable.

Being able to see a lived-out example of the kind of photographer and service provider I want to be has helped me believe that it’s possible to get there myself. Learning from Maddie is absolutely worth the investment — I feel energized and motivated to implement what I learned right away!

- Cara Bartelme

Keith Folken.jpg

Maddie Mae excels at teaching! She knows her stuff backwards and forwards and it shows.

I have been so impressed with how jam-packed and expertly organized her content is! There was more to learn about elopements than I expected. I’m very impressed with her focus on efficiency, business acumen, and branding. I’m just starting out in this market so learning from Maddie was a huge level up for me. It was so useful to realize all that I don’t know and it made me so excited to grow! Learning from Maddie was totally worth the investment.

- Keith Folken

Allison Slater.jpg

I have been absolutely blown away by how Maddie fully puts effort into both being an amazing photographer and a smart business owner.

Her knowledge in the service industry is so apparent and it's obvious that she puts effort into all areas of her business (SEO, marketing, client experience, educating, etc.)—instead of just focusing on being simply a good photographer. I learned SO much from her—so many things that I already thought I knew, but through her, discovered that I didn't have a full understanding of. I love how she focuses so much on being a top-notch service provider versus just taking good pictures for her clients. The information I learned from Maddie about how to become an elopement photographer was incredible and so helpful!

Plus it’s based on proven & tested marketing strategies over my 4 years of experience booking & shooting over 120 elopements.

I’m not a photographer, but want to book more elopements. Will this course help me?

Absolutely. If you have another business (such as videography, planning, officiating, floral design, etc.) which you want to tailor to being elopement-specific, this course will teach you exactly how to do that. This is the only elopement-specific business and marketing workshop currently on the market!

Is this course worth it vs. being mentored by Maddie Mae?

Heck yeah—this course covers over 16 hours of hard-hitting content which would take more than eight 2-hour mentoring sessions to cover. Individual personalized mentoring on this much content would cost over $6500. You can also watch all the videos at your own pace, wherever you want, and re-watch them at any time. AND you get exclusive access to me in the VIP online education group. You can ask me any specific questions you have at any time.

I’m not from the USA, so will this still apply to me?

Absolutely. Elopements are becoming more and more popular and known around the world. In this course you will gain marketing tools, business knowledge, and practical skills to create an elopement photography business that works in any country. Bring your own cultural context & language skills to the table and you’ve got a winning combination.
