Hi there, we’re Jake and Autumn!

And together we make salmon river elopements a reality

We (Jake & Autumn) met in 2010 on a white sandy beach in the middle of the Frank Church Wilderness. From that moment on we have shared a love for the canyon and have worked to build a life among its walls. Jake is a Coast Guard certified captain and has driven boats on the Salmon for the last 6 years. I (Autumn) own an elopement photography business. In 2022 we purchased Whitewater Expeditions. This purchase allowed us to bring our careers together and build a business that helps couples elope on the River of No Return.

Here is how we’ll help you elope on the Salmon

1. We’ll help you plan your river elopement

Planning a wedding in a remote location is overwhelming! We’re here to give you all the resources you need to create an amazing elopement experience on the Salmon River.

Jake (Whitewater Expeditions) is a licensed and bonded Idaho Outfitter and holds a permit to boat through 80 miles of the Frank church Wilderness. When you elope with us you gain access to 80 miles of the Salmon to explore via jet boat during your wedding day.

3. Autumn will take your elopement photos

I (Autumn) own Autumn Lynne Photography and over the past 4 years I have helped 65+ couples elope in the mountains of Idaho. My service includes elopement day photography and optional officiant service.
