Adventurous wedding and elopement photographers

We are Nate and Megan Kantor, a married wedding & elopement photography team. We are first and foremost adventurers—we love climbing, hiking long distances, and are soon to hit the road full time in our 1974 Airstream Overlander. To tell you a bit why we love our job so much, I have to first tell you our story.

In July of 2016 we arrived back home to Texas after hiking 1100 miles through California on the Pacific Crest Trail. It was three months of real, full-time adventure—hiking 20+ miles a day on our own two feet, living in a tent, climbing mountains and crossing rivers, carrying everything we needed on our backs. That experience changed our lives for good. We knew after that we couldn’t just do weekend trips anymore. We wanted to LIVE for that type of adventure. So we packed up our car, built a camper in the back, and drove north to Colorado with cameras in hand and a desire to tell stories for couples like us who are undeniably in love with each other and the outdoors.

Since then, we’ve been traveling all over the Western United States capturing intimate weddings on mountaintops and adventurous elopements on desert cliffsides. We love our job because it puts us outside—we get to explore sandstone cliffs in Moab, alpine lakes in Colorado, and untamed beaches on the West Coast. All while photographing couples who love these places as much (or even more) than we do.
