Your Texas Adventure Wedding - Big Bend Elopement Package
Looking to have a Texas Adventure Wedding? Our Big Bend Elopement Package might be just the right choice for you!
Most people don’t know about this amazing jewel of a park hidden deep down on the Texas/Mexico border. Once you visit, you will NEVER want to leave. The beauty of this desert Mountain scape is unmatched in my opinion. Come and visit during the springtime and see the amazing abundance of flowers blooming off the cactuses and wildlife exploring Big Bend National Park. The colors are just stunning when everything is in bloom. Fall is also fantastic because the weather is just PERFECT! You will NOT regret having your Texas Adventure Wedding here and having a fantastic hiking adventure!

Meet your Texas Adventure Wedding Photographers
We’re Jessica and Yousef. Texas Adventure Wedding Photographers. A husband/wife photo/video team based out of East Texas. We absolutely thrive on creating a badass adventure for our couples! That’s why we created this Big Bend Elopement Package for you.
When we’re not out shooting weddings or elopements in Texas, we can be found adventuring with our two womb gremlins, lol. We love to cruise around on the Harley or take Bessie the Thunderbird out for a Sunday drive. Sometimes we can just be found hanging out on the porch trying to decompress with a cigar and a glass of whiskey.
Give us a shout and let’s go on a badass adventure elopement in Texas together!

Your Texas Adventure Wedding - How to prepare?
Make sure to hydrate well before your Texas Adventure Wedding, the desert is very dry.
Bring plenty of water to carry on the trails of your Big Bend Elopement.
If your skin is sensitive to the sun, please bring lightweight coverings and sunscreen for protection.
Good sturdy hiking boots are a must, there are a lot of sharp cactuses on the trails.
Sunglasses and hats are nice to have to keep the sun out of your face while hiking.
The nearest airport is in El Paso which is a 4-5 hour drive or San Antonio which is about 7 hours drive.
This is an EXTREMELY remote location, which makes it amazing for relaxing and solitude and star gazing, but not great for finding everyday luxuries during your Texas Adventure Wedding. Please make sure to stock up on medicines, specialty items needed before arriving.
There is a great convenient/grocery store before the park for stocking up on grocery items.
