Elopement at Cypress Grove & the MacCallum House Inn, Mendocino California

Vanna, of Elope Mendocino invited me out to photograph an Elopement by the ocean yesterday.  It was windy and cold but love between the bride and groom warmed us all deeply.

I have to be completely honest here. This was my first elopement. Ever.

It was something of a whirlwind photo session to say the least. What would normally take half a day for a bride and groom to accomplish on a full wedding day, with an Elopement, everything is accomplished in under 2 hours.


I do feel there were a few things I could have done differently, had I known what to expect ahead of time.  Overall, I’m happy with what I provided to the clients, and my overall work itself.  So live and learn, and move forward.

And enjoy the slideshow!



ps – If you want to know the ‘things I would have changed if I would have known about them beforehand’, let me know. Perhaps this would make for a good blog post for future couples who plan to Elope!
