Elopement Packages

Since the Bay Area is often a destination for our couples – many opt to skip the fanfare and let's-be-honest-quite-insane-prices associated with more traditional weddings – and decide to elope on the beach, park or other cool place that's special to them. Often it's just me as photographer / witness, the couple and the officiant! Very cool. These are basically engagement sessions + a short, intimate ceremony. 

The gallery above is a quick snapshot from a recent elopement in Moss Beach (north of Half Moon Bay) – we started with a first look at the hotel, then I took them around Fitzgerald Marine reserve for some formal bride and groom portraits. Then, the officiant arrived and we walked down to the beach for a short ceremony. Afterwards, I convinced the couple to change into some regular clothing so we could finish up the session with some more casual portraits, ending at sunset. All this in about 3 hours! I never get this much exclusive time with a couple on any full wedding day... See more of Tiffany and Mike's elopement photos.
