for couples dreaming of

a true-to-us
Day One

whether it’s your best people gathered at your childhood home, exchanging vows you wrote in the truck 5 seconds ago before jumping in High Sierra hot springs, or discovering a big wide open part of the world with only your love (and me!) by your side

these are the little moments 

strung together to tell a greater story

We’re not here for perfect, we’re here for the real stuff–– honest storytelling, genuine human connection, celebrations of love that are 100% true to you.

Joshua Tree Engagement Session by Safeena Noah Photography

We’ll create together, to immortalize beauty only love could ever make.

for couples seeking
adventure & fullness of life

To me, adventure doesn’t mean you bagged 10 14ers before breakfast (or even know what that means). It doesn’t mean you’re a climber or live in REI. It just means that you recognize life and love as the greatest adventures. It means you play.

I’m passionate about making
adventure accessible.

You don’t need to project a trendy ideal to be my ideal client. You don’t need to be effortlessly flawless and naturally outdoorsy 

–– as long as you’re okay with letting me guide you into an epic adventure. All you need is to be real with me, so that I can be real with you. That is where I do my best, most honest work.

for couples creating

a more
generous world

Love is bigger than ourselves. And the whole thing is about giving more than taking. A central part of the mission here is to always reflect that.

your third

My favorite thing in the world is observing people completely engrossed in whatever (or whoever) it is they love. That’s where humans are their most honest selves. Adventurous love is my true north –– living it, fostering it, documenting it.

I cherish global impact, outdoor adventure, and genuine human connection –– and so I’ve integrated all those things into my work. They are what make me create at the highest level.

introducing the

Honeylopement Adventure Collection

Malibu and California’s Sierra Nevada mountains are home to me, so I know this rugged coastline, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park, Mammoth, and Mono County like the back of my hand. Joshua Tree National Park, Big Sur, and the Lost Coast also have my heart. This state is my favorite place to share.

While California is home, my roots are international. Safeena Noah has photographed weddings all over the world, including places like Tuscany, Rio, Australia, and the Golan Heights.

After exploring 40+ countries (ask me about my alter ego as a travel points queen), I’ve curated a collection of 1-2 week long adventure elopement and honeymoon itineraries in California and abroad. These are the places closest to my heart and my most adventurous memories. 

The Honeylopement Adventure Collection is for the couples who value one-of-a-kind experiences and epic documentation, but don’t know where to start. You might be looking for a honeymoon that feels more “you” than the big wedding you’re having. You might be saying, “Hey babe, what if we skip the big wedding altogether and use that money to have the adventure vacation of a lifetime? We’ll exchange vows while we’re at it.” Whatever your true-to-us hunch is, I’m here to make it a reality. I’ll help you choose an adventure, plan it, and be there to document both the ordinary and the magical.

there are no limits to how far I’ll go for you
