Tree of Life Films & Photos


Hi! We’re Jennifer & Tom Mattera, an elopement photographer and videographer team, based in Las Vegas, Nevada and traveling all throughout Nevada, Utah, Arizona and Southern California to document couples adventuring and in love.

We are within driving distance to so many National Parks and endless epic locations, so we are up for adventure. There is something about the desert, the mountains, the desolate beauty that draws us in. We can’t think of a better place to go on an adventure together and celebrate your love. This is where you share experiences and create memories. Imagine hiking as the sky starts to glow and saying your vows as the sun rises over the mountain. Or soaking in the last bits of sun as it sets in the endless desert.

Elopements are for you if you want to escape the stress and production of a traditional wedding and strip everything down to the core. It’s all about you two and your love. It’s your moment. We are big believers in keeping this experience authentic. The way to do that is for you to have everything planned out ahead of time so you can relax and enjoy the day. We’ll help you along the way for location recommendations and permits. We’ll help you schedule the day to make it a fun and chill experience. We’re going to get to know you two really well so it feels like you’re just hanging out with your friends, Jennifer & Tom on your elopement day. It’s just us (not a big paparazzi team).

Our approach is capturing genuine moments where you two are actually into each other and experiencing the amazing environment that you are in the middle of. We’ll help you get there with prompts and direction (only as much as you would like or need). We make it fun, we play music – send us your playlist! We like to do whatever works for you. Once you’re in the moment, we don’t need to say much at all! So if you’re looking to adventure, elope and make a couple of new friends, hit us up!

We’d love to hear from you!!
