Craft a wedding that feels like you

Various friends and family members are pressuring you into choosing this table setting or that giant expensive sign and you are already overwhelmed with the idea of planning of a big costly wedding. 

And at the end of the day, the big wedding doesn't even feel  like you. 

Sound like you?

Well now you have someone in your corner, cheering you on to follow your heart and get married in a way that feels true to you!

Your love story is not about anybody else, and your wedding day shouldn't be either. 

It’s the memories and intimate moments of making promises to each other at sunset on a cliff overlooking the ocean, or hiking your favorite mountain to say I do.

What does it mean to Elope?

Eloping doesn't mean you're "just running away to get married"

An elopement is a day focused on your love, and whatever that may look like for you. This could be exploring the coast of Big Sur, camping under Mt. Whitney., or saying your vows in your favorite spot at sunset followed by a romantic picnic. It is your day without the stress, drama, and restrictions that can come with big weddings. 

It's an intentional, intimate wedding experience that is about you and  your love. 

Why Elope?

Imagine this...

You wake up in your happy place and make breakfast with your best friend.

After a relaxing morning together, you get ready for your elopement.

Then you head out to the beautiful location where you will say your vows, either just the two of you or with a few special friends and family members. 

After making your promises to each other, you celebrate with a romantic picnic and enjoy the incredible views around you.

Maybe you end the day with an adventure or a nice dinner with your family.

Imagine whatever your best day ever looks like, and let's make that your elopement day!

With me, you don't just get a photographer...

You get a new best friend who will get to know you and help you craft your dream elopement experience

I know that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and that's why I work hard to make sure every detail of your day is special.

I also create custom elopement packages for each client so that it fits your needs. 

You can start by checking out my base elopement packages below, if one of them is exactly what you're looking for, awesome! If it looks good but isn't your perfect day, contact me for a custom quote and elopement package that fits your needs!

Your Love Story is Unique

Every couple is different, and every love story is different. 

We will work together to craft a magical day full of adventure and intimate moments that is unique to you and your love story. Dreaming of a romantic day on the coast? Or maybe an epic mountain adventure is more your vibe?

This is your day, you can do whatever you want!

Below are the basics of what comes with my California elopement packages. Once you inquire and tell me what your dreaming of for your day, I will be able to give you a more detailed quote for your unique elopement experience. 

I design my elopement packages with your needs in mind

Tell me what's important to you

I ask you all kinds of questions to get to know you and what you want for your day

I help you with all the details, because you've probably never planned an elopement before and I don't expect you to know how or know all of your options!

Included in every California Elopement Package:

Personalized Location Scouting & Timeline Guidance

I will help you figure out where your perfect place to elope is if you haven’t already decided. I have scouted and explored different beautiful locations in California and know all of the best epic spots! I will also help you craft a timeline to get the best lighting for your photos, the smallest crowds at your location, and make the most of your day.

Lodging & Activity Recs

Don’t know where to stay or what to do while you’re there? I got you! Once I get to know you and your vision I can recommend lodging that fits your style and activities that you’ll love.

Permits & Licenses

Don’t know how to do this legally? Don't worry, I got you! I will send you everything you need to know to get a marriage license and permits for your location.
