Let's Run away together


Not really, but I'll photograph you and your lover running off into the sunset....
then maybe run back because we still have dinner plans.
I might not be ready to do a 10 mile hike with you at 3am, but I will definitely try! I typically try to find the secret locations that aren't insanely far off the beaten trail. Helicopter rides though, YES PLEASE. Wanna get weird in Vegas, OKAy! Want to have a quiet thoughtful day on the beach, we can do that too!
why Takke Photography:

candid + posed

But also yes to the subtle guidance + prompting to bring out the belly laughs, possible tears, and to make sure you get some stellar photos for years to come.
