2021 Weddings & Elopements

Is This Your Vibe?

Enter for a chance to win FREE full day photography coverage!


(So many phenomenal couples!!! Winners will be chosen and contacted the second week of January... good luck!)

Yes... Seriously.

King & Opal is our new lovechild wedding photography brand, just launched in 2020. To celebrate and kick things off, we'll be shooting two dream vibe weddings / elopements in 2021 for FREE! We're on a very specific creative mission to pursue what sets our souls on fire ~ artful, cool, creative couples with a funky, romantic, free-spirited aesthetic, celebrating love in decadently adorned, natural settings.

Our combined background as wedding + portrait photographers spans well over a decade. This is an opportunity to win full wedding photography coverage (valued between $5,000-$20,000). Congrats on a well-timed engagement and your breathtaking style!

Want your wedding to embody this vibe and you're just getting started with your planning? We can connect you with the resources to bring it to life. We're excited to have some fun with King & Opal, to travel more, and to meet new favorite humans.

See instructions & qualifications below!
