PHOTOGRAPHER – GUIDE – MARRIAGE COMMISSIONER
ENGAGEMENT & FAMILY
ou want to hike; you want to hop into a helicopter. You don’t mind choosing a dress you can walk in, wearing hiking boots with your dress, or getting your hair messed by the wind from the helicopter. You want to stand high on top of a mountain to say “I DO” with the one you love. If so that is awesome and welcome to Geoff Wilkings Adventure Series.
I fell in love with the Canadian Rockies on my first visit to Canada when I was just 21 years of age. My life changed as I helped maintain an old log cabin that was surrounded by huge trees and humungous mountains.
I get it, and I understand why you want to celebrate your day with just the two of you in a remote location.
Or, if you want to bring along a limited number of special people, this can be arranged too.
Being whisked up into the air via a helicopter is incredible. But, we go a huge step further than just flying. We land in a remote location to left alone as the helicopter flys away. We hike; we venture to find a great place to say, “I DO.” How cool is this!

What is an elopement?
Over the years, the definition of “Elope” has changed. It was once known as run away, and secretly get married or, flee with a new lover. Today is more known as a small destination wedding.
After photographing hundreds of weddings and speaking to thousands of people, it is evident that we all have a story. To getaway in a remote location could be for many reasons. You might want to stand on top of a mountain with your partner to say your vowels, and that simplicity is not practical for anyone else to be with you.
Or, your family might not understand the harmonious feeling that you feel when there’s no sound around apart from the wind. With tiny animals popping their heads up with interest wondering what is happening set within the glorious Canadian Rockies. That precious feeling that you get when you hold your partner hand and look away in amazement and wonder of the majestic mountains.
There could be other personal reasons why you want to say “I DO” with you and your partner. I get it, and I’m here to let you know that I understand and I want to help with your celebration. I have partnered with a guide and marriage commissioner; I offer a service where can help plan your day with you.
Whatever the reason why you want to elope is your story, and often it’s hard to explain to anyone else. I have photographed at many locations with weddings of over 500 people, and that wedding can be full of love because it’s about the big celebration with big families. There is no wrong or right. To me, what matters, regardless of the size of your wedding is that two people love each other. Too huge, to laugh and maybe shed a tear. We are here to learn and guide you in creating your fantastic day.
