Getting to Know the Mind Behind Wild Elements Photography; Ciana Salisbury; Adventure Photographer

I’ve found myself completely overwhelmed, (happily overwhelmed) with all of the new faces that have started following along on my photography journey, along with my lil biz!

With that being said, I think it’s about time I introduce myself to all of those who aren’t as familiar with me just yet! I like to pop in, and say hello every once in a while! You see that photo up there?? Well that’s me, Ciana, and my best buddy in the entire universe, Ivy Lou Iverson!

If you would have asked me three years ago where I saw myself today, I would have looked at you with utter uncertainty. The me back then had NO idea that this where the me now would end up. Basically, I’ve managed to manifest my dream job by combining my ever so deep love of travel, art, culture, and adventure into something so spectacularly rewarding, and beautiful.

I’m an adventure photographer, meaning I document two really important things; love & Mother Nature, (landscapes and wildlife!). I’m currently based on the East Coast, but moving out to the mid-west in a few months! (Colorado to be exact!)

My job consists of crafting unique and intentional experiences for the souls out there consumed by wanderlust. I help couples create their very own romantic rendezvous catered to fit their specific love story, such as adventure elopements and intimate outdoor weddings. I also help create wild adventures totally personalized by the solo wanderers out there, or the individuals who are either already hitched, or aren’t quite ready to tie the knot!

I love the authenticity in what I do. I love the people I get to encounter and collaborate with. I love having so much exposure in a community full of creators. I love the places my “job” takes me. I love the stories I get to tell without words. I love getting to showcase the Earth the way she deserves to be. I love being able to actively advocate for sustainable living and conservation throughout my “job”. I love it all, even the parts that aren’t as crazy cool as the rest of the aspects of my journeys.

If you’ve read this far, you’re really awesome and I really appreciate you. To sum it up, I’m a tree-hugging, adventure-seeking, star-gazing, globe-trotting fool, and I wouldn’t want it any other way!

Every so often, I'll be writing and sharing blog posts that pertain to me, not just the epic places I explore on my journeys and the really kick-ass people I get to work with. I'm all about diving past the surfaces of appearances, and getting to know people for who they truly are. I don't want automated interactions, I want personable and authentic experiences that you can walk away from feeling heard, content, and excited.

Always remember, if you ever wanna manifest some earthy magic, don’t ever hesitate to get in touch! I’m always down for a good adventure;)
