About Me

In love and deeply devoted

You are ready to start this amazing journey with each other and don’t know where to start.

You want to know where to go, how to tell your family and how to get those meaningful photographs to keep the memories alive.

I am here to help!

I’m Amelia Shahan, your elopement photographer,

and I’m always up for an adventure!

When looking for a new place to visit, I always check out google earth and hiking, camping pages. It’s all about the outdoors, but I do love some good food and a bottle of wine, we can’t forget the creature comforts.

The less traveled the better, I despise tourist traps. Some of my favorite spots are Fort Morgan, Alabama, it’s so peaceful and calm, Saba of course, my home island, and Colorado, the mountains just call to me. I have many more locations that will make perfect places for your elopement. 

As a large family, we love and value the outdoors. On my time off you will find us outside, fishing, camping, or hiking as a family. I am an advanced certified scuba diver and when I lived on the small island of Saba, I use to dive every chance I got. It is some of my happiest memories.

It’s about the experience.

As someone who also eloped, I do think it is the best way to commit to your partner. I love the intimacy and privacy we had on the day we said I do to each other. It has been over 13 years and I loved that it was only close friends and family. It was relaxing as there was virtually no timeline and no one to impress. if I had to change anything it would be the location as we eloped in the courthouse.

I started Lavender Heart Photography so that I can help couples plan the elopement of their dreams. If you are looking for a friend to share this journey with, that’s me. I think we all need to find that person we just connect with, someone we want to share our most intimate moments. If you are wanting to elope alone than you want to feel comfortable with that person who is documenting those moments. 

How does it work?
