Elopements and intimate wedidngs always have such a romantic feel. Couples are so appreciative of their time together, just the two of them. This sweet couple traveled to Big Sur from the east coast. We explored along the river, went into the Redwoods and drove along the highway stopping as we pleased. Due to the heavy rains last winter, and the road being closed for more than half of the year, I took advantage of places like Bixby bridge. I rarely take couples to the touristy locations in Big Sur, so it was fun to photograph along the highway with no one else in sight.

Glen Oaks in Big Sur, is always a favorite place of mine to photograph weddings and elopements. I love their Redwood forrest! The light that comes through the trees there is unlike other Redwood groves in Big Sur. Also if you book a room at Glen Oaks, with permission from the Inn, you can typically elope free of additional charges on their grounds. Walking out your cabin into the forrest is such a stress free, and magical way to get married. Weddings and elopements at Glen Oaks, are always so dreamy!

When Julia and Nick emailed me asking if I would travel to Yosemite National Park, for their wedding, I was crossing my fingers that we would get to work together. Yosemite’s natural wonders are memorizing, and traveling there for a wedding or elopement has always been high on my list. We hiked to their cliffside ceremony location, overlooking the valley with Half Dome in the background. This adventurous elopement was an honor to capture, I forgot I was even at work!
