Bohemian Malibu Beach Elopement Vow Renewal | Kiara + Kiel

Bohemian Malibu Beach Elopement Vow Renewal | Kiara + Kiel

Location: Malibu, California 

I was connected to Kiara through our mutual friend Melissa who directed her most recent music video of the Westworld theme song. Kiara and Kiel have been married for a year so in honor of their upcoming anniversary they put their wedding outfits back on and we headed to Malibu to do a vow renewal couples shoot. During our initial emails I asked if they would be game to perhaps get a little dirty and wet and Kiara said yes without hesitation. Once at the beach we frolicked in the water, got caught in waves (myself included) and dried off in the warmth of the sunset glow.

El Capitan Canyon Santa Barbara Glamping Wedding | Jackie + Tim

El Capitan Canyon Santa Barbara Glamping Wedding | Jackie + Tim

Location: Santa Barbara, California
Venue: El Capitan Canyon

I met Jackie and Tim through one of my favorite couples and previous clients Grace and Chris. I knew they would likely share some of the same interests and quest for adventure so it was no surprise when they told me they had chosen to get married at El Capitan Canyon in Santa Barbara. This place has been on my bucket list since I first moved to California years ago so I was so excited to finally photograph there. With miles and miles of trails to explore, a multitude of sleeping options including glamping tents and adorable little cabins it really makes for a perfect venue for the adventurous couple that wants some luxury too.

Location: Malibu, California
Venue: The Sunset Restaurant

Rebecca and Zach got married on a Monday morning surrounded by a small group of their nearest and dearest. It was a perfect day in Malibu for an elopement; overcast skies gave way to eventual sunshine that made the ocean sparkle in the distance. The beach was quiet with barely anyone else visible but the dolphins seen in the distance.

Petaluma Wine Country Boho Backyard Wedding | Kelsey + Sean

Location: Petaluma, California
Venue: Private home

Kelsey had me at hello. I felt connected to her from her first email inquiry where she gushed about her relationship with Sean and their seven year courtship. She described her ideas and vision for a modern boho backyard wedding at her parents home in Petaluma, a small town in Sonoma's wine country and her desire to use only locally sourced vendors for everything, well everything except me. This was a community event that brought together friends and family and focused on sustainable and eco-friendly practices. Every decision about their wedding was made from the heart.
