Every adventure is worthy of being documented.
Think about growing up… When did your parent’s pull out the camcorder? For only the most important events. Weddings, recitals, Christmas, birthdays… Your wedding matters. Big or small, the two of you, or a few friends to gather – It matters. I understand that the idea of having yet another camera on you might feel overwhelming, but I can assure you that my unobtrusive filming-style will set everything at ease.
I’m Elizabeth Mae, a Colorado adventure videographer for elopements and intimate weddings, events, and personal storytelling. I am a Colorado native that loves hiking, craft beer, tacos, rock climbing, and generally just being outdoors gearing up for the next Colorado Adventure.
Your Wedding Day is NOT my Screenplay
My films capture reality. You spend months planning your wedding, and it is my job to capture that day like an artsy fly on the wall. I have a photojournalistic approach with a cinematic flare to my films. To me, this means that I won’t direct every single move or action, but I know how to find and use beautiful light and I know how to film effectively so you don’t have to do the same thing over and over again. I embrace squishy noses, rapid fire kisses, and wind-blown hair. It’s not pristine florals and flawless cakes. Life is never perfect, love is never perfect. But that’s the adventure.
Unlike many videographers, I am 100% willing to hike the trails with you. That’s what makes for a great elopement film. My setup and gear is specifically designed to be lightweight, compact, and versatile so I can be ready for anything at any moment without the fuss, pomp, and circumstance. I’m not shy of any level difficulty of trail, the end result is worth it.
I’D LOVE TO BE THE ONE TO HELP YOU DOCUMENT YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE — WHETHER IT’S A WEDDING OR AN ELOPEMENT, A ONE-DAY HIKE OR A WEEK-LONG TRAVEL EXCURSION.
Oh hey! You’re still here! I bet you want to know a little more about me
I found my love of the outdoors a little later in life. My family wasn’t much for going out and hiking all day, but once I got my driver’s license, all of that changed. The summer after graduation, you could find me in the mountains just about every weekend. I have summited multiple 14ers solo, and regularly solo hike all over the USA. Shortly after finding my love of hiking, I dove into rock climbing and kayaking as well.
“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”

I am a wife to my goofy, loving husband, Eric. We got married the fall of 2018 at a brewery with both of our families in attendance. He is a firefighter in Colorado, master jerry-rigger, and enjoys a good adrenaline rush. Although he doesn’t shoot with me, he is my greatest supporter and encourages me in growing my business.
