Photography is our art. Storytelling is our passion.

Our photography is about more than just capturing events - it's about capturing LIFE. Those precious fleeting moments - the unposed laughter, the quiet whispers, the almost-kisses. The photos that you look back on and are FLOODED with memories. The photos that remind you of what's important in hard times - for better or worse.

If you are an adventurous soul, we want to tell your story. Whether it's an intimate wedding, elopement, or an everyday adventure - don't hesitate to contact us.




Elopements are SUCH special memories, because the day is all about you! You don't have to follow traditions, invite your uncle's 2nd cousin, or try to impress hundreds of people on YOUR wedding day. Elopements are SO intimate, fun, and stress-free.

"I want to, but my mom would be so sad if we eloped!"

Eloping used to mean running away in secret, but today it's more about having a very intimate wedding with only your closest family and friends. It's about not putting on a production, spending $30k, or being too exhausted to enjoy your special day. Elopements don't have to be just the two of you at a courthouse! Typically, an elopement can have anywhere from 0 to around 30 guests, and you can plan out an exciting day to celebrate with the people you love!

Whether you want to elope in a cute Airbnb, hike to the top of a mountain, find a field with scenic views, or do something more casual, the memories you make will last a lifetime. Again, it's 100% all about you. 


Ready to elope? We absolutely LOVE helping couples plan their dream elopement.


Shoot us a message, and we can talk about locations, decorations, the timeline, photos, etc. And if you need an officiant, Dan is ordained + is an excellent public speaker!


Hello! We're The Pinckards, your local Adirondack elopement + intimate wedding photographers!

Laura Pinckard is the main photographer, and her husband, Dan, assists as a back-up photographer and handles most of the business-related responsibilities.


We're just two adventurous souls who love traveling in our Subaru, hiking the Adirondacks, canoeing + hammocking, meeting new people, and hanging out with our doggos! 

Laura grew up traveling in Europe, where she experienced different cultures and lifestyles, which directly impacts her work as a photographer. Dan moved from Chicago to the Adirondacks about five years ago, and he fell in love with everything the mountains had to offer. 

We both want to become official ADK 46ers by hiking all 46 Adirondack high peaks, so if you want to do a mountaintop photoshoot, let us know!


When we got married a few years ago, we had a traditional wedding with around 200 guests. We spent thousands of dollars, had to invite guests we barely knew, and felt a lot of pressure to make our wedding a high-quality production.

If we could go back in time, we would do it SO differently. We would have planned an intimate celebration with our closest friends and family, hired an amazing photographer, and focused on what really mattered - getting married to each other!

Our goal is to help other couples avoid our mistake! We do take photos of full-sized weddings as well, but our main focus is providing stunning photos of intimate weddings + elopements.
