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!
