This bohemian inspired elopement was one for the books! There is something so sweet about a couple setting up their perfect wedding, and saying their vows just for each other. No big reception, no church filled with hundreds of guests. It’s just two people in love promising forever to one another. This day was inspired by bohemian elopement vibes and should really be in a magazine or something! This couple was so amazing to work with. They were so kind, loving, and open to my ideas and I truly loved being able to photograph them.

Just because you are planning an elopement doesn’t mean you have to say no to pretty details. Details like flowers, ceremony decor, hair, and makeup can still be apart of your special day. You can actually splurge a little bit on all of these things because you’ve chosen to have a smaller, intimate wedding.

As elopement and wedding photographers, our job is to capture the moments of your day. Whether you’re getting married in front of a large gathering of family and friends, or choosing to marry with just the two of you, your officiant, and a wedding photographer, your wedding deserves to be documented. Our job as professional wedding photographers is to inspire, capture, and create moments with our couples that will translate on camera. We do this through a variety of prompts designed to evoke real emotions and feelings so that when you look back at your photos, you’re taken back to that same moment.
