Ben + Sarah: Oceanside Beachfront Elopement

AN INTIMATE WATERFRONT WEDDING

Living in California, I can't get enough of beachfront weddings and elopements. I was stoked when Laura asked me to second shoot this intimate Oceanside elopement between her sister Sarah and her better half, Ben. This was so so special to be a part of because while it was intimate, each person had a role and part in the overall day. Whether it was creating the florals, handing the couple the rings, or doing a short reading during ceremony, each person was a part of their day. It was beautiful to witness such a tight bond between a family.

It's always such a blast working with Carsten, so I was beyond stoked when she asked me to associate shoot this elopement. It was a perfect day for an elopement at Terranea. The sky was blue on one side and overcast on the other side - weird I know, but that's what it was like, which made for gorgeous blue skies behind them, but clean, even lighting on their faces. They opted for a first look then we went out onto the rocks to get some killer shots. Their ceremony was led by their friend Matt where they were surrounded by their closest family and friends. Enjoy!

Jesse and Robin has a short and intimate ceremony at Table Rock Beach in Laguna. Jesse's mom walked her down the long set of wooden stairs to Robin who was smiling from ear to ear near the water's edge. Jesse's stepdad married them and their closest friends surrounded them as they exchanged vows and rings. After their sweet ceremony, we took plenty of photos, but the best part was when we climbed to the top of the cliff. Our time up there was cut short when the tide started to get high and we all got drenched. Enjoy!

Thanks James and Nicole for allowing me to be a part of such an intimate and special day in your lives. I feel so blessed to work so closely with awesome couples like these two. They shared an intimate ceremony with few family and friends at Lazy C Ranch in Palm Springs. It's such a rad venue in the desert - such a beautiful backdrop! They were also able to rock two different outfits. They spent their honeymoon there as well, so we grabbed some fun shots of them throughout their stay. Enjoy!
